Are WG killing the source for new revenue?

Given that there's still only around 24k thousand on the EU server?

Doubt it.

Besides, only a dozen or two players actually play it with any frequency.

 

The gun on it is trash unless you load gold too.

Makes you wonder, doesn't it?

 

Of course, in practice I bet it's sold mostly to the so-called "tank collectors", and it's doomed to be a credit sink if you want to be somewhat effective in it. That's before you consider that the 'new player' experience might be quite a bit better than it used to be, including skipping and speeding up a lot of the initial grind for a tank line.

 

(I'm sure WG knows exactly what they are doing. Better off getting €50-60 or whatever off of existing players than assuming that a new player will spend the same over the next year - presuming that the existence of the II J actually ruins his experience, that is.)

Question is will they buff its HP when the ammo changes go live?

Pz-II-J is not that OP anymore. In the old days there were only a few tanks that could actually hurt you in same tier matchmaking, the rest would just ding. Nowadays there are plenty of same tier tanks that can even penetrate you frontally, which makes you a cubersomely slow XP pinata with an abysmal gun.

As top tier you are the heavy tank, more so then the actual heavy tanks which will straight outrun you. Bottom or same tier matchmaking will make you cry.

Three tanks I avoid engaging when playing my Pz1C.


 

1: This monstrosity.

2: T127.

3. That bulbous French thing (forget it's designation).

It's very expensive to get, expensive to maintain (the gun sucks and you pretty much need 100% premium load-out) so only a few people buy it and from those, no one will play it consistently, so it's actually rare to meet one in battle, but even if you do, there are 14 other targets for you to shoot at, so, yea, I don't think it's that of a problem.

Fixed it.

You only have to pen 50mm of side, back or UFP. That's it.

 

PzIIJ shouldn't be matched against tiers 2 but otherwise...

 

Not to mention every PzIIJ player nets -60 to -100k credits after each battle. What a deal of a tank.

Sure it had an AMX designation - something masquerading as an LT, but absurdly slow:unsure:

I suppose I could look it up if I could be bothered but, to be quite honest, I can't.

I'm having far too much fun watching the Irish having their backsides handed to them by the All Blacks:teethhappy:

Pz1C can clip FCM36pak40 no problem.

He meant AMX38 or a duck.

Either people accept there is a learning curve or buy premiums, see cheaters everywhere, blame MM and WG for fixing matches against them, etc.

I'll let you figure out which type of player is more vocale

Compared to what? All the M2 and Crusier II one-shotting them. Or the AMX 38's they can't pen, or the clip guns taking them out in 3 seconds? I doubt that thing alone will scare them off. Nor is it a common sight, even when they sell it. As most know by now it's a collectible, and that's about it.

I couldn't care less about these low tiers. For me the game starts at tier 5.

The one good thing about playing all three of those tanks is feeding on the tiers of Pz1C drivers. The little sh!ts.

Think he means the duck. FCM 36 Pak 40 is very effective against PzIIJs. i once spent a night continually meeting one and ripping the little seal clubber to death.

That's it - the Duck.

No point engaging them, even with prem ammo.

FCM Pak 40 is another retardedly OP vehicle.

 

Pz Ic don't do too well against AMX 38 or AMX 40. But the S35 is mostly immune from the front too.

I play the PzIIJ once a year on Christmas morning, just to re-balance those people who woke up happy :justwait:
