Do you think this is enough for FCM to be competitive again?

 

• Improve the specific power from 19.5 to 23 h.p./t.

• Increase damage per minute by 10% (from 1,920 to 2,100).

I'm kinda sure a feedback topic related to these changes exists.

No, as the real issue on that tank is the bad gun handling for this not well armored heavy with low alpha.

It makes me regret buying the AMX CDC even more. :confused:

Yes, I think this looks pretty promising. Playing to its strengths instead of tilting it towards a typical heavy. With this engine buff, it will really begin to outrun most mediums.

Yeah, this looks good. It's already a decent tank imo.

I hope so. Its disadvantage was always huge hitbox without any amor. If it´s going to meet tier X changes should be sufficient.

AMC CDC is superior at the moment. Low profile and speed.

As I understand (but there is so much I don't understand and this might be one of those things), it is not going to meet tier X; they abandoned the idea to get rid of limited matchmaking. So these buffs to those SMM tanks are just buffs.

all it needs is medium tank MM

 

match it up vs VK100P?  IS-M? any tier 8 heavy its a loser, but against tier 8 mediums?  Cent, T-44, etc its much more competative

Needs better gunhandling, MUCH better. With mediocre pen and 240 damage you need to be able to snapshot.

FCM seems to have gun handling of a typical T7 medium tank, which it essentially is, apart from hitpoints and view range. Make it equal to T8 mediums, and there is no justification for it to have pref MM at all.

If they are keeping the pref MM then I don't see why they should touch the tanks at all, just consign them to the dustbin. Unless they are altering every tier eight (and beyond).

With current MM I meet tier 8/9 all the times.

And tank is not designed for that so buff is a must.

Whereas my cdc and Korean are ideally suited to meet tier ten the majority of the time? Meh. Leave the tanks alone until the MM is sorted.
