I don´t like trend where majority of premium tanks are way better than regular ones from the tech. tree for many years now but I must admit that Obj. 703 II is balanced really well.

There were so many predictions how this will be next step in OP level and powercreep but none of this is actually true.

 

This tank is nowhere near to be OP and is just so fun to play for numerous reasons and still balanced. Surprise it´s possible.

 

I often laugh about WG's greediness and criticize it but here just thanks for very well made tank, good job whoever designed it.

 

Would be great if WG also look at some old tech tree tanks (even top tier ones) and make them competitive again, that's a shame.

703 is best tank WG released recently and it's not OP

Let's hope the tech tree line doesn't end up like crap, and we are left with another Lynx vs EBR case.

Hopefully not. This might be actually after long time tech tree line which can be very fun to play and not bringing powercreep into the game. I´m really surprised about 703 II. But WG seems to be aware about possible double barrel power and keep it safe. Otherwise it could be start of the end of this game.

I agree. It's not as good as it was initially portrayed. Here's a video I recorded the other day in my E75 TS.

Skip to 4 minutes in for a 703 v.2 lockdown :D

Woah, are you saying WG can actually release a balanced tier 8 premium and it will still be popular by the community? :ohmy:

Do you hear that WG?!

I am not sure if we are playing the same tank... I believe it sits between balanced and overpowered, I honestly prefer to play on it rather than on a Defender or an Emil (also probably due to fun factor).

Exactly, fun factor and thrill here is that you have chance to penetrate with two guns but at least for me it doesn´t happen often, rather opposite. Mostly I penetrate only with one gun and also it´s about making that decision if you risk it and than wait for really long reload. And that can be gamebreaking moment.

So yes it seems OP on paper but in reality it´s really balanced.

I have Defender but playing with it is boring as hell so only one playing with it is the dust in my garage :)

Who is even hyping 703? Where?

 

Everyone is saying it's an OK tank but not OP.

I'm missing an important balancing factor on the tank: a cupola. This: a lot of tanks have 0 chance against this tank when it's hulldown, when even Defender has spots on top of the tank that are weakspots, even though they are small and hard to hit.

Well, it doesn't really need cupolas. It has 2 of them, but most tank can punch trough it's turret front with premium round you need 220-230mm after all to do that, depending if you aim at turret cheeks or gun mantlet.

I have this tank and I constantly get hit by enemies. I see no super armour or anything.
