To give arty targets when everything else is unsportingly hidden.

It's a relic now to tell everyone that War Gaming can't balance tanks. It is either grossly over powered or pointless. 

The Type 5 has now joined the pointless side of the game.

Haven't tried it yet but is 290mm on the 14cm gun too bad?

 

I mean it could be worse, you could be in a tier 8 medium in that battle! :)

Type 4 is really solid, the 14cm is a great gun for the tier so the derp being nerfed IMO doesn't harm it, so for me its been buffed by the recent patch. Type 5 received significant gun handling buffs to its 14cm along with the slight pen increase so it really isn't that bad of a gun anymore.

Gold Pinata's? 

Useless until/if gold ammo gets changed.

The point is to nerf the tank so that it poses less of a problem for tier10 balance while at the same time maintain the premium ammo income for WG.

Same as the FV4005 nerf where the problem was the alpha and they nerfed everything but, so people will keep on spamming the premium rounds.

At the same time the super balanced Russian tanks, the 430s and the Defenders keep on roaming the servers.

Of course not only do they bring income from everyone and their mother wanting to play them but from pretty much everyone else spamming premium rounds to kill them etc etc.

I have seen "people" spamming HE with 240 alpha guns, so i would say its made for those "humans" that like to click right before they click left.

If you don't like it then maybe you are not part its target group. I find those cartoons that a made for little kids to teach them social life and other things, stupid and pointless, so what, kids still like them. Should they get changes to be more asocial with more, violence, snu snu, bobs and vegana because i don't like them or should i just watch something else, like South Park, instead of cartoons for kids?

The purpose of Types was always to be able to out-trade other tanks without really even aiming. 

 

Well, you can still do dmg without knowing a single weak spot, you just don't out-trade anymore.

Maybe use the 14cm gun? It guarantees more damage than the 15cm if you know how to aim at weakspots.

As you say, it has become completely pointless.  What is more annoying is they haven't looked at the other OP tanks, the worst of which is the SC.  I haven't met one yet, that hasn't being using 'special ammo' every shot, no matter what T8- T10 I'm in.  I understand the need to nerf the HE, but the changes are too extreme when you have still have SC's, Maus and 113's running around with impunity.  The Type 5 was at least one response to a hull down SC, other than Arty.  I should imagine those who approve and cheer the Japanese HT nerf, are also committed arty haters.
