I assume WG have barred you from buying these vehicles?  I own them.  They are fun to play from time to time.  Some tanks are not.  It's a way for WG to encourage some people to spend money.

Yeah, we all know that - if you cant beat them, join them.

But does that solve the problem? Not really, but quite the opposite.

My main gripe is - do we really need that in the game? Like, really? If diversity is the reason, we should keep the balance. Those heavies are all but that.

 

You could say they are slow, inaccurate, cannon fodder as bottom tier, you haven’t played one so you don’t know what are you talking about, or whatever else...

But exactly the fact that you have to dump all other stats (and even that WG has done quite lame) in order to make them "work" shows how unbalanced they are.

Maybe the most difficult thing for Type 4/5 player is to select the correct ammunition for each situation.

 

There really should be a video from WG about this.

 

Maybe SirFoch could make a guide about it.

If my team would have had one Oi Exp, we could have some chance (which ofc does not justify their existence). But no, we had a T1 Heavy...

Mind you, I have played 5 games last night in Ducky, lost all 5. Avg. WN8 was fine (2k) in those five games, (I spammed "some" gold cause obvious reasons) and so on...

 

Now, I don’t care for those loses, negative credits (skill ammo for faster grind to escape the pain described), I even don’t care for not being top tier once (although I despite 3-5-7 being preferred template), and I even don’t cry about MM which now matches tanks much MUCH better than in the past. What I don’t like is looking at the tanks list if there is an OI Exp or OI as mid/top tier cause I know what is about to happen. And yes, out of those 5 games, there was another one, with OI in enemy team - and again without one in our team - and he did the same thing like this guy above... And both of them were bad players. Ehm, forgot: what do you think which tanks they played a lot and have best (but still cr@p) WR in them...

 

Sad thing is all that does not change going up the tiers, escalating with Type 4 and 5 (same as looking for 268-4 but that is another subject on another different level). 

 

I feel that Japs heavies put me off more than arta (cause you can deal with arta later in the game if you are winning the game, and nothing is better than a revenge). But no, you need to deal with Japs straight away, and if you don’t have a proper tool - and that happens more often than not - you can kiss your game/fun/win goodbye...

 

Ridiculous. It makes money for WG (5% spam my bottoms) but it is ridiculous. You should not deliberately ruin your own product to get more money from it, but WG is doing exactly that. :unsure:

Well placed player retention mechanic. The low skill bob will remember such a feat for a long time and come back, the high skill bob will find it boring and less challenging, making sure they do not flood the battlefield.

 

Depending on the point of view it makes quite a bit of sense.

O-I experimental? It's like the least OP tank of the entire line. The gun selection is way worse than it was and the armor is not incredible either. If your entire team gets ROFLstomped by an Experimental, your team is to blame.

True.

But I look at that as baiting a pig with an apple while knowing it will leave poop on the carpet. We will all have to clean behind them and have bad smelling socks to live with - but damn, the pig hunt is on!

Hello captain quirk. What tank were you driving? it seemed like it was a slow one. Go take a small agile tank. Get around that OI, use cover, inhale, bring guts to the battle and flank that guy, go to his rear or side.

From this point i start shooting. Dead heavy. Does it sound good? did this to a tier 7 with a tier 6 medium. Every since i started playing agile tanks i have less regrets, am more mobile and WNR started rising. There are counters to everything, it's just that your team was not that bright or experienced to do it.


And always bring your guts with you, but use them sparingly.

Ah well... We could have left the 1-2 flank (me, matilda, su, wolverine, stug 3 and couple more of them) and come back later to deal with him. But there is no chance you can pull that out in randoms.

I did most of the dmg to him, spotting him all the time whenever he came to the corner, shot i think 15 gold and 8 HE (actually, 2 HE shells did nice dmg) but that is it. We have melted his HP down (hence the Spartan) but he just persisted. Nothing could be done in that battle. 4k dmg blocked and 3-4 tanks one-shot by him tells it all.

AMX ELC when my Duck (AMX 40 if you are not familiar with the "duck tank" term) grows up. Soon my friend, very soon... :justwait:

 

But it is just a small scratch against the surface of the deliberately caused issue. A poor consolation...

Yeh, such is the world that mixes all skill levels and takes on the game, in one large bowl.

 

I see it a bit akin to a very large football team, the player that spends a lot of time sitting waiting on the bench and seldom gets the ball when he is finally on the field, will in time grow bored, while the Maradonna's will feel that he is more or less always passing the ball to the wrong player and is running everywhere on the field and messing up their game.
