Good effort. I was about to say that you made it too obvious with tiger aiming time buffs of 0.01s and should have opened with maybe some... french tank with actually reasonable buffs to better blend everything in, but judging by reaction of other posters, it wasn't necessary. Congrats. Have a well deserved like for finding this leak.

The important thing with an April fools joke is to make it before lunchtime on April 1st.

Well I get how somebody here might think this is a joke, it is not like T-44-100 was buffed how many times (3)? with every patch...

And if you think stats for Tiger2 Buff are not something we can expect from WG,... I would say just wait a few months and you will see.

After all Leopard1 is borderline OP.

Object268v4  is balanced, nerf is improbable, but a buff very possible.

[edit]

I cannot reveal my sources, but they are credible like WarGaming's statements.

Laughable .... yet believable.

 

T-44-100 had 3 buffs you say ?

How many did they give to the T-25 Pilot or the CDC. :(

Made insignificant adjustment to gun of T-44-100 to improve historical accuracy. This will be automatically charged to your in-game gold supply, also payable with an arm or a leg.

Well no, but D-25T, D-25BM and BL-9 do... forgot few spaces  WG well known to make errors  :harp:

They want to balance 440dmg on Tier8 tanks like Defender, vk100/vk168 ;)
