Given how most of these topics are based on: 'whehehe, big bad tonk killed my shiny tonk, no fair', I figured to approach this from a different angle: thanks to the insane damage from gold HE I was able to carry a game that was, IMHO, technically lost. I should _never_ have been able to do what I did. I didn't play particularly well, but no matter, big old gun saved the day. Over and over again. This thing is worse than the CGC before arty got nerfed.

 

Hope this approach is going to attract the attention of somebody who is able to pass the message on: this tank is just not OK the way it is.

WG doesn't care. And annoying as they are, the v4 is twice as broken.

You are probably right, but one never knows. To the best of my knowledge, this approach hasn't been tried so far. It is rare for people who actually play the tank in question to suggest it be nerfed, or so I believe. At the very least it should give this post a bit more weight. Probably not nearly enough on its own, but I figured other people might follow the example. If it doesn't work, it wasn't all that much effort. :-)

Well op this might or might not cheer you up. But from next patch there are nomore real gold ammo in the game. So gold ammo will be a saga just.

i just wounder what the Dingers will use their gold on when that patch hits live serevers.

I play the tank and I also think it should be nerfed/reworked.

 

The gold HE is indeed stupid and should be gone. I would probably also drop the HE alpha to 950-1000, but buff rate of fire in return, so its like improved version of the tier 8’s gun. In return, the original AP gun needs major buffs in order to be viable, and finally, the armor layout should be completely overhauled.

Sold my Type5. My win rate was indeed higher in it, but its size and slowness make it horribly dull to play.

Removed? No. Nerfed? Yes. As in other HE derp guns have HE or HEAT shells with more pen, but less alpha. IMO they should buff the pen a bit, and greatly reduce the alpha. To around 950 or 850. As the aspect I find broken about it is... the ability to one shot tier 8 meds or tier 9 lights when it high rolls. Or even a tier X BC that has only taken one hit. With more HE pen the general alpha output on a non pen would be lower vs now, and still less damaging on a full pen. But still gives more reliable damage.

Uh, they will use their real money to buy silver.... And then fire the same amount of premium shells as before.
