Where is this game going? What is point of some tanks?

Obj 268 4 is game destroyer. It is invincible tank and you lose your will to play after confronting him! I know some of you will say that you need skill, etc. but this is just to annoying to play this way...

There are many games where my team lead with 5 or 6 tanks and then Obj 268 4 shows up. He just drove straight forward killing 6 of us one after another!?

Hey! It’s balanced now! You can now pen tiny cupola reliably with gold ammo in tier 8-9 tanks!

They didn't balance the fact, that you can't pen the tank at all if it hides it's lowerplate. Same as Squnk.

If it's driver is stupid enough to stand still while you try to fully aim, then shure, you can pen it...

Fixed.

Ever thought of working as a team and tracking/flanking them?  They are only OP because people play against their strengths.

Opportunities in doing so is not all too realistic in this World of Corridors now is it?

The strength of Obj 268-4 is to just rolfstomp anything in it's path. 

 

Edit: I've seen 268-4s with just 1 or 2 support tanks push down entire corridors against vastly superior numbers while doing 5-6k damage in the process. Banana road on himmelsdorf and west path on abbey comes to mind.

268V4 was nerfed to death. If you can't deal with it now then may I suggest returning to tier 3 or 4 and learn to play again

Anything works against bad players. 

Honestly, 268v4 doesn't stand a chance against a single hull down high tier heavy. If there are multiple heavies, or maybe some assault TDs, I would be surprised if 268v4 survived for more than 20 sec.

That's my experience as well. Even extremely good players can sometimes think they are invulnerable in this tank, doing irrational moves and die in a few seconds.

Funny how it's your best tier 10 tank by a fair bit  with WR.. methinks someone took your favourite toy away and gave you it back pretty much the same which is still broken...

But then again, most players are bad. A bad player in 268v4 > bad player in anything else in most situations. "Bad players are bad in anything" doesn't justify a broken tank in which poor players can just press the "w" key and drive straight into their opponents face. My view of the tank is likely skewed as I'm currently just grinding some crap tier 8 and 9 tanks. Which means I mostly see 268v4 as 1/3 or 1/5 top tiers.

No, they are OP because they don't require a team tracking/flanking in order to win a straight-up fight, and the other side does. To take a quote from one of my favourite sci-fi series:

 

"It's the tyranny of evolution. Sooner or later, you have a species that will have a genetic or technological advantage and that species will always conquer a species without that advantage. Carthage, the triumph of the Homo sapiens over the Neanderthal showed us that. Now what do we have? We have Homo superior versus Homo sapiens. On a level playing field, Homo superior wins every time."

 

All you need to do is replace "evolution" with "power creep" and replace biological terms with technological terms such as "species" with "tank" and the idea should become clear. On a level playing field, Object 268v4 wins every time.

I have only just started the grind for this superbly awesome tank, oh yes right down at the bottom with the SU 100M, I think the purpose of the tank is to truly troll the EU player base with OP broken tanks and then laugh at us, while back in february this year we were told we cannot have a certain premium tank due to being OP and broken, I just wonder who decides which tank is broken and OP and which is not.

 

The whole debacle is just a bit comical IMHO.

 

 

i sure wish my TOG 2 was a bit broken and OP, lol

Obj 268-4 is no more OP then SuperConq. Tier 8 with premium rounds Pen its frontal plate quite easy. Also, comander hatch is so much easy to pen now. Also, the gun is crap-ish after nerf.

Have only had a few games in it since the nerf, no interest in it any more, that's why my wr is still high in it
