I used to love this game and aspired to get up the ranks to some of the top tanks, but over the last few months if you haven't chosen some specific lines to develop (Russian for example) then you have a massive disadvantage and playing at T8 is a complete waste of time.

 

A couple of examples...
I purchased the Super Pershing a while back due to its spaced armour, but it's a pointless tank now - everything can pen it - thanks for taking my money for that pile of junk.

I finally managed to get to the T28, but imagine my surprise when 3 or 4 hits later it's destroyed and to make matters worse its top gun won't even penetrate these Obj tanks in their tracks?!?!?

 

I think WG must think it funny to make Russian tanks better and other tanks worse (American for example) - wonder why that is?

 

Well thanks for that WG...I stopped buying any premium time, tanks and gold some time ago as I couldn't justify funding your insanity, and I for one won't be playing until you sort this mess out.

Have fun

You’ve read all my posts. I’m flattered to be honest.

You don't seem like a person that would take a constructive response cause your own post lacks understanding of how games work.

I traded my super pershing in the first chance I got :) But that was pre-buff I believe. Super Pershing used to be even worse by having REALLY REALLY slow speed on top of it. But yeah, you will mostly face tier9 and 10's in current mm and gold ammo = meta so your spaced armor won't save you much. Besides, you have plenty of weakspots so I often just aim for the right spot and hope to RNG that it will hit you in some weak spot somewhere.

 

If you wanted an armored premium tank, Crysler K & Defender = way to go. Both no longer sold though I believe. But Crysler K is a horrible money maker because it needs to spam gold itself for most players since it cannot even pen itself. The MauerBrecher is also decent if it does not get gold-spammed.

Everything has been able to pen the Super Pershing for ever, it's got about 12 weakspots, armour only works if you keep some distance and move a lot, then it's really troll.

 

As for the T28, that thing has been super overbuffed, it's now basically a T95 on tier 8, apart from the very small cupolas (which are still like 170 effective if you hit them in the right spot) you need over 270 pen to reliably pen it anywhere.

this is what i thought Simeon85, but due to its lack of manoeuvrability and everyone using gold rounds these days, it's destroyed in 4 shots by tanks like the Obj.
I played a game this morning where I was full front to an enemy Obj who was side on to me - I couldn't pen him at all, he smashed me for 25% HP each shot

What i find funny is the amount of weakspots that you will find on American tanks, whereas all russian tanks are more and more devoid of weakspots and have more autobounce angles.. or angled armor.

 

i wouldn't be surprised that WG does that to make putin smile when he plays WOT... Da comrade.. tanks of mother russia are zeebest.... have some vodka!!! da

 

look at the SP, t29, t34,t32.. all have weakspots easy to pen.. then have a look at armor profile of T44, is3 and others... makes me laugh of rage...

I'm not saying anything about his response. Your initial post doesn't seem to deserve one cause you say you made up your mind. Thing is, power creep is very common for online games.

But what does it matter? Really? If you enjoy playing WOT then what does it matter than Russian tanks are often superior to those of other nations, excepting that it neuters all competitive modes? All the tanks are just a load of numbers which make a "bang" noise after all.

Russian bias strikes you as something new?

 

Easy rule of thumb in this game is, if you want to improve your stats, play Russian. If you want to improve ur stats but despise the idea of Russian bias, play Chinese... It's Russian but somewhere else.

Well I'm not explaining anything meaningful. Good luck finding a better game.

You shouldn't face any tier x's in the Super Pershing.  Dunno what you all expect from a tank with pref mm, it's certainly no worse than the is6 which can't even pen tier 8 heavies frontally.

it does matter, because i enjoy playing other tanks than russian tanks, and i would like to be competitive... and to pen them. when an enemy tank shoots at the side of any american tank from 90°. you can pen 90% of the time. for russian tanks, you get lots of spaced armor, v shaped hulls, and autobounce angles... etc.. so in game there is more effort to be put out to face russian tanks.. and less when you play them..

 

i play russian tanks as well, and they are noob proof... i probably would enjoy WOT more if the bias wasn't so pronounced. Now will i stop playing? nope.. but does it matter? yeah it does.. because today we are fine with O257, then tomorrow we get what? WG keeps pushing the limit of OP russian tanks getting into the game.. and we sheep on...i do.. but not without getting my head out of my  aarse once in awhile and voicing out..
