Ello fellas.

 

Have been playing some Test server for the last couple of days.

 

Have one question.

 

Is the APCR shell of the Obj 277 a joke  from WarGaming or what ? Is it some kind of wicked troll atempt ?

 

1800 m/s velocity with 350 pen ??? What the actual*edited* ???

 

This thing shoots like a laser. Not only did they give it almost double the velocity compared to all other tier X heavies it also gets a small boost for penetration. Amazing.

 

Im leaning towards it being a joke. A bad one.

I also had a bit of fun tested the 277 on the testserver. That gun is amazing! Also the tank has good armour and can brawl with the superheavies, and it has medium tank mobility! (where have I heard this before :facepalm:)

5000 dmg is achieved quite easily, even by a noob like me. Just watch out for all those derp-guns and hide your lower plate and you're golden. Shooting mauses straight in the face for 500 hp :teethhappy:

 

 

Working as intended...

Can't have a balanced RASHA tank, that's a blasphemy.

Why are you ppl still surprised that the new tanks that WG is going to push into the game will be stupidly OP?

 

Is it because of naivity or stupidity? Or maybe you still believe that WG is lead by ppl with a passion for gaming and not the money hungry trolls that they are?

Srsly at this point, it's either stop playing or stop whining each time they do some proctology without lube, they don't care about you or the game. The game has become sado masochism, if you don't like it you should really just go or at least start whispering the safeword.

 

EDIT: The safeword will be available in the premium store in an awesome mega pack of awesomeness. It will include 1337 gold, 316427 50%crew skill reserves and the safe word for the low low price of 199€. You really can't live without it!

Yep, that's pathetic. I really wanted to grind that line but what's the point in playing with the 120 mm!

It all sounds good now but wargaming are going to change how gold ammo works I think. I would imagine they are going to make it much more expensive to use

Usual power creep from WG, it should have been nerfed but as standard despite it being clear and obvious to everyone that it is unbalanced they are still going to bring it in.

Well its a way better sniper that the Leo1. But Leo1 would be OP if buffed - WG why you so silly.

 

No but you are right. Its just pathetic. The gamebalance is just pathetic. Maybe its due to the balancing department eating and snorting crayons as their hobby.

202 pen & 490 alpha on a non-russian tank was a big no-no according to WG and thus got the nerfhammer, but 350 pen and a laserbeam is no problem comrade!

Yeah would be great if pricing was took base damage into account and pen increase as a mulitplier on the price. 

So basically a tank with Base/Premium pen 200/250 needs to pay much less than a 200/330 tank. Similar should apply to premium HE. HESH needs a rework too especially in the pen mechanics department.

This is basically the result of trying to force a square peg into a round hole.

 

You see back when the T-10 lead to the IS-7 the IS-7 felt like a downgrade in many respects (due to being a predecessor of the T-10) and thus WG gave it an unhistorical mobility boost to make it feel like an upgrade (something they never reverted after moving the T-10 out to it's own line).

 

Now that the T-10 leads to the O-277, WG once again have the issue that the T-10 leads to one of it's predecessors, and thus they have had to give the APCR silly values so the tank doesn't feel like a downgrade compared to the T-10 (which would be an epic fail as the whole point of this endeavour was making the T-10 lead to a tank that felt/played like an improved T-10.

Sigh, I'm not shocked anymore by WG, but we need to question why are they doing this?

They are not stupid as even us lowly forumites understand it is OP and you can't expect WG to not know this either so that begs the question why are they bringing it in

The only feasible answer is as another money grab.
