Just seen this vid what do you think op or not.

 

 

Most of the damage it took was from the Skorpion shooting him in the back but still took about 5 hits from the skorpion and still only lost about half his hit points.

Don't worry, Type 5 will balance it.

None of the reward tanks were or will ever be OP or even good.

I doubt its op.From what i ve seen on QBs stream when he played it.

 

We ll see when super unicums get it what they ll think about it.

55A were good when introduced, like were the 260.

They might have been shiny new and prestigious but not really good IMO. :)

Every tank can be OP in the hands of a skilled play. :izmena:

Partly, yes. Also watched others playing it. The armour doesn't work against t10 gold spam, like it doesnt for type 5.

54 were one of the top meds then, 55A were same with better gun. So good. Same with 260, faster and better gun compared to IS7. So good.

 

Then all the tanks kept getting buffed and reward tanks didn't, so now they are worse.

There are other videos from other people too.

 

For example, QB was showing how the armour model means you can be penned quite often when people just lock onto you and fire.

 

From the vids I've seen it's a good tank but not the best and not OP

Sad something like this actually makes it to Best Replays. There's absolutely nothing good or interesting about it, as all this player does is press 'W' and fire HEAT at Tier X while bouncing shots without even bothering to angle or use terrain for cover (except early on). Gameplay wise, it is completely useless and uninteresting to watch.

Things to keep in mind. It's probably the first time most see it. Most don't know where to aim on it yet as they don't see the lower plate, and have zero clue on it's armor layout. As depending on impact angle, even the side behind the light is 200mm when he comes at an angle around a corner, vs the 270+ effective armor they went for. 

 

People thought and did the same about the 257 when it first arrived. Now most know the layout of it, and counters it better. Or the Foch B everyone thought would be OP on CT. Let's wait for a few more to appear on live once the missions unlock for it before we scream in panic. As it's not easy to say with the few videos out there. As it's just vs people that encounter it for the first time.

I do hope everyone here realise that it got a quite big armour buff after it was released on the live server

WG: Only 10% of rounds fired are prem

This guy: "LOL" - loads full HEAT as primary

Yeah, I also noticed the full HEAT loadout, truly disgusting.

 

What's more interesting is the fact how WG is giving their favorite Soviet tonks all the crazy armour with such a good gun handling as well, this thing is practically fully aimed all the time. Paper tanks have to spend 3-4 seconds standing still waiting to aim and this thing is just no aim time at all. It is a Soviet tank, nobody could expect it to be bad. For bad tanks we have other nations in game.

Anyone who loads full HEAT is a confirmed idiot in my book as HEAT is not an all purpose round, you are handicapping yourself for side shots or tracking shots. 

 

---------------------------

 

This tank I don't think is going to be OP, the no track and damage thing I don't like but we've seen that before in several other tanks, but UFP looks 50/50 at best most of the time to tier 10 guns, worse if angled and the tank is fairly low profile so taller tanks at close range will pen it easily. Turret is good but no IS7 and there is a cupola there, after that you have nothing special in mobility or firepower terms with a fairly generic 440 alpha Russian gun and probably similar mobility to an IS4.

Not OP at all.I would say that is even worse than most of tech tier heavy X tanks in game.
