VK 45B is the best tier9 HT in the game, this tank is basically a 45B downgraded to tier 8. It's almost fine if this stays as it is now, but the 490 alpha gun.......that should be nerfed to 390 or 420

I think this tank good balanced. It looks very good for city maps and at the same rate bad for open fields. However, there is tier 8 premium tank destroyer inflation in matches. These kinds of new premium tanks may handle this problem.

440 alpha was bat enough on tier VIII heavies, now we get a 490 one, nice work WG.

I'm pretty sure the didn't implement the Mauerbrecher with the 490 alpha gun, because it would be OP, now it's not I guess.

Also RIP Tiger II, you will be missed :(:honoring:.

On topic though: This thing seems statistically equal if not stronger in some regards than the 252U/Defender, which is absolutely ridiculous. No way it'll keep that alpha damage. But even with 440 alpha it would be dull. The general increase in alpha damage is bad for the mid tiers. Some exceptions here and there are fine, but tier 8 has seen too many tanks featuring 400-500 alpha damage that it's almost become the standard.

 

Ideally, this would be a perfect candidate to replace the VK45B on tier 9, which then in turn could be moved down to tier 8. The VK45A could easily be a tier 8 premium tank with its current statistics. This would make the line more consistent in playstyle as well as making the line generally more appealing.

The Tiger II died about 5 years ago...

I wonder is they plan on rebalancing the T10 version in conjunction with its release. It's pretty rare sight the Panzer 7, it never really appeals to me to buy a crew trainer for a flawed/weaker tank.

DezGamez already reviewed a Super test version;

DezGamez in brief says; Nice alpha,long reload, poor gun handling, very slow, & workable armour;

Seems like a nice tank but it's niche like all superheavies. If it's LFP is trollish like the VK4502B it's probably going to outperform the VK1001, if not, the latter is probably still preferable. Barring, you know, the premium stuff.

 

Fact is tanks that are limited in mobility, are limited in battle impact. They're strong on the flank where they commit once they finally get there, but if the other flank gets rolled up before you have a chance to impact your side, you'll end up boxed in and killed. If it's one of those many maps with a dedicated TD platform on the far end, you can't even push your own flank.

 

Doubt this thing will turn out to be OP, but we'll see when it gets released.

Hmmn let's see.

 

For a start this thing is better than the VK 1001 P, which is already OP as it is.

 

You have -

  • 490 alpha
  • Gun handling more like a 390 alpha gun, if not better
  • Mobility more like a normal heavy not a super heavy.
  • 250mm rounded turret front, on par if not better than an E75
  • Decent pen.
  • Decent DPM even despite the high alpha.
  • Likely very good hull armour (180mm and decently angled, likley a strong lower plate as well)

 

It is equal or better in quite a few aspects to an E75, but its on tier 8.

Why do we need another when they have not released this one yet.

It seems ridiculous at the moment, even worse than the Defender. I'm hoping the nerf hammer strikes hard and brings it to tier 8 level rather than competing with E75.
