M2 Light

Pz 1c

M2 Medium

Pz 2j

Pz S35

Pz B2

Luchs

Hetzer

 

Low level play is a seal clubbing nightmare.  Tier 4 frequently take 60-90 seconds for a game to start because of the lack of players, and who can blame them for giving up?  Perhaps if WG made some effort to balance the lower tiers their game would survive a little longer?

 

And before some forum smartass points it out - yes I enjoy playing Luchs.  But it still needs nerfing.

I agreed, there are some really stupidly strong tanks that are regularly being exploited at T1-T4.
Those tiers are just as badly balanced as T10.

 

This could be a reason why players leave early, but there are probably other more important reasons I think.

Any over-performing vehicle should be nerfed, if it's a premium a full-reimbursement should be offered.

I still see quite a few players with <5k battles in games. Grinding their way spectacularly quickly up the tech trees. Numbers of new starts is ifc decreasing, but still there.

Apologies if I am missing the sarcasm, but you are a 48% WR player with 60% WR in both those tanks.  That's the definition of OP

I *wish* I had the power to nerf broken tanks.  Sadly that's up to WG not me, so your £40 stat padding tank is safe

WG and their new player intro hand hold newbies to the point of gifting them a tier 6 day one so no, those low tier clubbers aren't that big a deal as they're easily avoided.

Any tank can overperform and be a beast on lower levels if u putt the effort, crew and equipment needed, off course some have better stats then others, but before starting the "nerf" X tank u should look at who made u become that way towards that tank, sometimes there is seal clubbers doing alot with a tank that most players sux in it, cause...

 

If u go into a battle where most ppl cant see past 400 viewrange but u got improved optics and can see 400+ were u got a huge advantage, if u got gold and use premium ammo only, u got another great advantage, and if u got other equipment and bonds to spend on improving it even further and crew members with 5 or more perks on them vs ppl that most are new players, with 50% to 80% crews and no equipment...

 

Well in those cases, the tank is almost irrelevant its the rest that makes it OP!

Overpowered tanks in tier 1-4 nop no proof. New players vs skilled players = the reason.

No proof for your idea either. Unless you can show it here.

 

It could be a reason though.

You are the reason why new players wouldn't come.
