We're continuing to overhaul vehicles of different nations and rebalance Tier X medium tanks.

The AMX 30 B is the biggest pile of poop at Tier X imo. I can't see those changes making much difference to it or make me chose to play it over any of the other much better tier X mediums. As far as the Leopard 1 goes, I also can't see any real role for a Tier X "sniper" medium in the current meta of the game either. The rarity of the K-91 kind of speaks volumes in this regard.

 

Even still, changes to these tanks are welcome.

"Object 430 and 430U are rarely seen in battle!"

*nerfs Obj 430*

Yes that will make it more playable and more used by players. I'm sorry but you ruined one of the few worthwhile and enjoyable tier 9's.

Ok...STB-1 more nerfs than bufs

Leopard, still not enough

AMX 30 B, ok, but could be better

Obj 430 and 430U, like always, nerf the monster some months after release

Everything makes sense if you apply 25% rng to the rebalance devs.

Nothing will change for Leo 1. More top speed is useless if the hidden terrain resistance remains garbage.

I have no doubt exposure time will still be too long to hit anything reliable and not get shot to pieces. Sniping with the current meta and maps is a joke.

WG remains incapable to fix anything. Can't fix something if you don't even understand the issue.

Any chance to get 907 for bonds, for example 15000 bonds or more ?

I know it's not up there but how about a little tweak to the FV4202's turret and the Chinese meds?

Who the hell had the audacity to even suggest these changes to STB-1?

Nerfing:

  • APCR to AP (standard) and HEAT to APCR (premium), while RUSSIAN tanks keep theirs
  • shell velocity
  • penetration values
  • alpha damage
  • dispersion values
  • view range

The tank is bad because:

  • you actually can't hit ANYTHING reliably from any larger distance even when using VENTS and Onigiri.
  • armor layout on the turret (the gaping hole around the gun)
  • terrain ressistances and hp/t

 

Why would you change what doesn't need fixing?

Are they even aware of the fact that Chinese mediums are still in this game? Should we tell them?

Don't have stb so i can't really say much but these seems more like nerf than buff.Unless that new mechanic does something special.
Leopard 1.At least it's a buff and in good direction.Maybe won't change much but rather see it little more buffed then overbuffed.They can always buff it a little bit more.

Amx 30b buffs seems ok and it might be actually playable now.
Russian bobjects.Well kinda deserved nerf tho.I don't have 430U but i recently got 430 and i can say it's insane tank.Just overperfoming to much imo.Even tho i like it i think it's best for the game if it gets nerfed.Along side with it's tier X brother.2.3 sec aim time on 122mm gun on 430U seems ridicilous.2.7 seems ok and it should be derpy.

1st MM fixes and now buffing underpowered tanks from other nations and nerfing OP russian tanks.

Who are you and what did you do to WG we all know?

STB changes are pointless and its more of a nerf than buff

as for the Leopard 1 these changes are not the one people has asked for 

Obj430 and 430 U must get even more nerfes!

i dont know about the AMX
