Does anyone know? That StuglV PM prize tank had preferential MM of course but was still terrible with that low vel and low pen gun or at least I didn't like it but maybe now it will be a fun little tier5 pew pew tank like it's tier5 Brother after the removal of preferential MM? 

 

Thanks.

One of my favourite tanks, 60% wins in it.

It does and it always has.

 

I rather like the StuG IV despite its shortcomings compared to the StuG III G (the mini-E25). Give it the same gun, a bit more mobility and I reckon it'd be ready for regular match-making.

It's fine with the 2 key made into the 1 key but ya if it had the same Stug lll G gun and a little credit buff that would be pretty cool, but does anyone know? I didn't see anything about it

Actually i would say that the widely despised (although I liked it) Jgpz IV was the poor man's E25

I agree, that's why I called the StuG the mini-E25. I played through the Jgpz with the long 75mm and thoroughly enjoyed it. I only sold it when it became clear that it'd never be an E25 no matter how hard I crossed my fingers and wished.

I guess you have to be a good player, that's where I struggle lol. Well, to be fair I only played it a handful of times just to Ace it and I thought the standard AP was pure donkey but was fine with the APCR. Something that derpy I cannot say is a good sniper tank. Derpy shell velocity is acceptable for a TD if it's packing a massive alpha bomb but this tank does not. I found you get all of the drawbacks of the slow shell velocity but none of the alpha and even the pen at 110 is pretty much knocking on the door of most tanks in or around that tier but I suppose I never gave it some time since the Stug lll G at the time I won it(ages ago) was just better and the mm wasn't so bad back then or at least I think it wasn't as bad back then lol

Stug, htc, T55A and 260 are all crap yet WG are very interested in giving the M60 350mm heat pen instead of 330mm!!! :facepalm:

 

Note: Turning the hull of the T28 htc is a whole new level of pain.

I dunno if they'll remove lower tiers' pref MM... Kinda feels irrelevant to the balance of the game since most bull---- people whine about happens at tier 8 and above.

 

I can't add much more to this, no idea what their plan is with lower tiers.

 

Wait, doesn't the TOG have preff MM too though? I can't even BEGIN to imagine what they'd have to do to it so it could fight tier 8's. :D

Give it 220 alpha and call it a fat Japanese tiger. :)

Shorten it by about 40 feet might also help but I'd really hate to lose one of my favorite hp farm pinatas

You know what, i don't think this PMM removal will go through after all. Don't think they got the spine for all the hassle with the noisy players.

Wasn't a small marathon that gave us a Dicker Max? Far better for crew training + credit maker. Best thing about Stug was the garage slot...

I was waiting for such a reply...

 

See, the rhm-borsig crew fits perfectly into the Stug IV, while most of the crews from the armored TD branch fits perfectly into the Dicker Max...

 

It's completely [edited]-backwards logic all things considered, but I'm not the one who makes the game. :D

 

Edit...: I wish somebody made an AI which would take context into consideration when it finds an inappropriate word it wants to filter out. :sceptic:
