From what QB said, the armor won't play much role this time. Can you believe it? Russian tanks?! With poopy, coughcoughrngexcludedcoughcough, armor? Pfffschh. Not even the speed will be that great. So, does that mean that the guns are gonna be OP?

 

I am looking forward to try 'em out. Decided to stop the IS-4 line after unlocking KV-4, since the KV-3 is bad enough. Okay, It's not even that bad, but the KV-4 hype went down so bad after realizing how pointless its armor is nowadays. 22k exp on the KV-3, going towards the IS-3 v2.

If they have poopy armour then cammo will be 70%

 

...reducing to 67% after a double barreled blunderbuss shot

Wait till they complain on the RU server about the armour and it gets 'rebalanced'. ;)

Yes i'd like to try these out and i'd also like to see the final stats on the tier 8 premium. The mechanic itself is interesting and the situations in which it could be useful are plenty. Can't say i am really concerned about the armor because as you said yourself, it isn't that important anymore or at least until the upcoming ammo rebalance changes that.

 

One good thing about them beside the double guns main attraction is that they have decent gun depression. 8 degrees are good enough to go hull down without exposing your hull.

 

Love the poll options by the way. Here is an RU meme about these new tanks. :)

The tank will be useless if they don't change the DPM. But deep down in our hearts, we know why we all are going to play it:



To use the recoil speed boost:trollface::trollface::trollface::trollface::trollface::trollface::trollface:

nope, they seem trash

 

didn't play polish heavies(nor do I plan to), didn't play british lights(nor do I plan to). Didn't play french wheelies; though, ok, the tier 10 is good. But 4 lousy tanks for a good one... no thanks.

Plan to unlock all tanks even those I end up not playing.

The blueprints are going to make sure of that and they will just keep piling up till I do.

 

More interested in multi nation tanks than multi gun, though if they started making dud guns on tanks we already have functional I would be interested.

I will probably try them, if they're interesting they might also be fun, but with the double shot mechanic they will probably become great meme generators.

Wasn't it stated somewhere that it is not as strong as the Kirovets 1 armour,so in effect they have had a nerf,will they be as strong as every bodies favourite,the Defender?

I will certainly play them as ST-2 is probably the tank I'm waiting more, as I fell in love with the concept after finding it out.

 

As OP said, armour on tier 9 and 8 won't be relevant, but I beleve they should buff DPM, pen or accuracy if they plan to leave those so paperish.

 

 

PS for OP

You should have got the KV-4. KV-3 is the free exp sink of the line while KV-4 is really nice (miles better than KV-3) and ST-1 at tier 9 is great too. :)

As I've been away for a few days to Poland to see kid drift a r34 to name one. And only been updated now. Seems they went for all 3 firing options vs just one of them. Tbh I suspect it will kinda work like the Italians. Use it wrong, and you will just set your self defenseless for too long. As 35 seconds is a fair bit of time vs 1K or 750 alpha guns it faces. That and the charge up time might screw you over if you start it too late going around a corner etc. It will definitely be interesting. As I doubt this will be super broken at first glance. Tho one aspect that might seem worrying is the ammo racks it might hit with a double blast. 

 

Tho.... one aspect that did horrify me. It starts from the KV-3. A tank I did not get over with well as it was cursed, and I gave up on it. Guess I'll have to crawl back to it.

Disturbing video. First the kid is obviously caught up in some serious server lag. Second, "you want him to do you so much" (0:15). Wooooot?!

We already have big issues with all the "high alpha" guns in this game that are speeding up the progression of the matches (not exclusively, but they have a solid impact) and now WG will make an entirely line of "super high alpha" heavy tanks.

 

Makes you wonder if they ever play their own game or not.
