WG, dude, enough with this [edited]already... Do something about this crap ASAP because this game is turning into utter crap at high tiers. It's [edited]unplayable at times. Type 5, ok, Maus, ok, 430U okish.... but this is just beyond pathetic, it's [edited]insulting. Do something..

How about the E3 then? Because he still has more cupola and super structure armor when hull down vs it. At least most tier X guns have more then a 0% chance to pen the upper hull or the cupola on the 268 4 at most angles.

Man, I hate the E3, but I can still pen the lower plate with gold 95% of the time and the cupola also (maybe not as often), but that's not the issue..... the E3 is slow in every way (traverse, reverse, etc) and doesn't have Tier 10 Medium gun handling... which the 268 4 does, and it's fast, and it turns like a med tank and reverses like one and I continually bounce 340mm pen shots off the lower plate, from both the IS4 and the 430U, I won't even tell you how it is with the Krapvagn with its 300mm pen premium APCR.
Bottom line man, you can track and flank the E3, you can run from it, circle it, w/e you want... you take one shot to approach and then you can deal with it (or at least have a chance), but you can't do that with the 268 4. It's [edited]ridiculous.

E3 does what? 25 km/h? Obj 268 v4 does 55. Thats the main problem

E3 is a snail compared to the 268-4, unable to catch up to meds, whereas the 268-4 can keep up with frigging LIGHTS. The only way the 268/4 could be more broken if it had a turret with good gundep.

E3 vs 268 v4 is a false equivalency - I wish people would, for once, use their grey matter and succinctly state their issues...

The 268 v4 is fine, if their intent was to reward you for making it through the 263.......if not, it's broken as all fuckery :popcorn:

The IS-7 isn't broken or OP though. It's just not overly challenging to do ok in.

Broken, surely not, but I think it's a bit OP because of the gun, which has far too good soft stats for a heavy, especially for one using a gun of that calibre. Best in class gun handling, snapshots like a med...  but it doesn't need much to be brought back inline with the others.

The IS-7 is one of the better balanced heavies imo. The gun is meh (especially the premum pen really struggles in the current meta), but it has good mobility and the armor has plenty of weak spots, yet can still be used effectively with skill. There is of course the black hole side armor but the armor behind the tracks is an easy pen. 

 

My favorite tier X heavy after they buffed it and also one of the most reliable for ranked games. Almost have my second mark on it, I want to try for a third mark when I have the credits for it. I barely play it at the moment because it needs so much gold and even the gold ammo will bounce or miss often.

I'm sorry but the gun dispersion values for movement, hull and turret traverse are simply too good, they're better than some meds', and sensibly better than all of the other guns equipped by Tier X heavies, which is not ok, especially when you think of something like the E5 or any other lower calibre gun. Anyway, the Premium pen is indeed crap and I know how that feels, I play the Krapvagn on a different account and that's even lower and it's HEAT (it doesn't go through tracks).

E3 doesn't go with 55km/h.And it doesn't have 20 power/weight ratio. And last time i checked it had a pennable lower plate.

Seriously the 268-4 just proves the balancing department really hasn't got a clue. should sack the lot of them. Tier 10 is just a joke full of bad joke tanks.

The funniest part is when 268v4 is top tier in a 3-5-7 game.

Was firing UP into a 268 4's lower plate with 340 heat pen T-10 shells yesterday at slight angle, bounced 3 out of 4 rounds.

10/10 would dab 2 key again~

Never knew E3 went like..55 forwards and 25ish backwards, always.
