I hope you're Right.

WG created a precedence however in WoWS when they nerfed all DDs, be removing the ability to stealthfire, which hit most of the DDs hard, but two premium DDs the hardest. 

Yet, no refunds were issued as WG claimed that a game mechanic was changed, not a premium Vehicle directly. 

 

I really hope you're Right m8. 

 

But if they dont nerf all HE for all tanks wont that make certain prems more OP? They cant ringfence the kv2r for instance but then nerf the Skorp or 112 HE. That wouldnt make sense.

 

There cant be one rule for one prem tank just because that tank uses it as its primary ammo, there might be players that spam HE in t-34-3 or Hawk 30s..... its logically all tanks or all none prem tanks.

 

It appears to be a crapstorm waiting to happen to me. Is the change worth all the aggro :)

With the leffe they left it with heat and AP, its not quite the same this time, they wont remove any ammo types from he KV2-R but he HE mechanism will be changing, look I am not saying I agree with them but I can see them doing this as a global mechanism change affecting all tanks Premium or not.

I think many of you are missing the point that WG was making when this was first raised. If they change the whole mechanics of the game (in this case ammo), they don't view it as a change to individual premium tanks and therefore not a violation. After all, when they added physics (9.12 or whenever), they fundamentally changed the way a lot of premiums worked. Less people complained, because it was generally a positive change. But that's the position that was presented at the time.

 

I'll be very clear here and point out that I think it's a load of whatever, and have no sympathy for WG's point of view if that's what they do decide, but the  bottom line is they will do whatever they think is best for them.

Really hope they go through with this on all tanks, which will lead to some proper balance changes to all tanks. And for the whiners go [edited]yourself for destroying whats left of the balance in the game.

I don't think a lot of people realize this but in a way, they will completely break the KV-2 if they go through with these changes, break as it will be completely broken.
Not a lot of KV-2 players use the AP rounds right now since how hard it can be to know when to use them but even now when used correctly it can be completely OP, 700 average dmg shot on the front hull of almost any tier 6 heavy tank and even some tier 8s.

After this change HE will be rubbish, thus a lot more KV-2 players will use the AP shells and a lot more will learn how to use them. Sure sounds somewhat fine right? But remember the pen on the AP rounds will be buffed and if I remember correctly the dmg would get a buff as well.

This will make the KV-2 broken as in it will be able to either bounce a bunch shells it fires or it will be able to deal 700+ dmg shots on a lot more tanks.

You really think, this will lead to a more balanced game? 

I kinda feel sorry for you. 

 

And saying all whiners should go (edited) themself, while at the same time whining… sigh

There is nothing wrong with HE (unless you talk arty), so why change it?
