I like the part where tanks like Standard B have more pen on regular rounds than T54E1 with premium rounds.

 

Not power creep at all.

It is basically tier 9 tank with tier 8 penetration values.

All the old school tanks at T9. Patton, E50, T-54, T54E1 are all meh on pen (the Russian tank has brutal 330pen HEAT however, funny that)

 

Really does need looking at WG...

It's because several years ago, the main power creep attribute was penetration on guns. 

 

That's why tier 8 T34 was regarded as such a good tank back in the day: 248mm pen on regular rounds!

 

Now of course ~250mm pen guns are every where, so its nothing special.

The T69 before T54E1 has very poor pen also when compared to most of their peers.  I didn't like that one or the T54E1 at all but the T57 is a right hoot. In my opinion.

T54E1 like many other tanks is a victim of "lets not make it too good" mentality WG had a long time ago before they took a big dump on that notion with new tanks from the Bulldog and onwards.

 

Yes they occasionally nerff some of the OP tanks but they still suck big time at the balancing department.

T54E1 should have 220/230 standard pen

T69 should have 202 standard pen

They should have had these values from the start.

I got much better results using standard ammo rather than premium. 

That said, a bump in pen values wouldn't hurt.
