Can we please get a general balance pass for this game? Overhaul some of the worst OP/UP vehicles/trees to balance out matches some more and hopefully reduces the frustration?

 

Just some examples: Wheelies are a pain to play against. If you have any kind of slight server lag, they're next to impossible to hit, they can turn on the spot without losing any speed/turn over, take next to no fall damage, snipe you with HE on full speed from half the map away, and their wheels absord 155mm shells with no damage and without slowing them down. It is mystifying to me how someone can look at this and think "yes, this is something that makes our game better the way it is now!"

 

British LTs. I mean, the wheelies have made most LTs redundant, with the possible exception of ELC 90 and LT432 (premiums, naturally), but the british LTs are so hilariously bad its kind of funny. The camo advantage is useless considering the current meta discourages passive spotting, and the DPM... I don't even have words.

 

Clan war exclusive tanks, Chieftain and Object 279(e)? Who thought these were a good idea?

 

So yeah, can we hold up on one patch of new russian premiums and have a couple of game balance patches instead? Please? Give me some hope there's still devs at WG who want to make a good game, rather than just all the money in the world.

just saying, the 279e is available to anyone.

 

But i agree on the EBRs. They have killed the light tank game with the notable exceptions you make and the T100 and yes the Brit lights are laughable bad, everyone of them.

 

But the i also just had a game on Prok TX with 3 arty and trust me it wasn't where i wwanted to be in my SQ. There were no lights so everyone camped (7/8 heavies each side) as they knew as soon as they got spotted the 3 clickers would wreck them.

 

There are issues in this game but they are far more important ones than a few Chiefs and EBRs

Ahh the usual whine topics. No, they don't snipe you half across the map with HE, especially pen you. And no the wheels still don't absorb shells, no matter how much you people try to repeat that, it doesn't make it true. You are simply hitting the wheels in a way that there is no armor hit box behind them, so of course they don't do damage. Wheels are nothing more than external modules.

Arty, EBR and Gold is Holy Trinity in dis game. It shows how bad players are and why this game never be good or fixed. The funny part: how players approach to it ... deny, use it, abuse it, adapt, give up, etc...  ... this is most interesting thing and what gets dis old machine going  :)

No balancing is done till shell rework. FORTUNATELY the shell rework was scrapped. Guess that puts us in limbo? Or how is it called?

A bit more active balancing would be nice for this game.

 

Wheelies should just lose their good accuracy on the move imo, now they win every light duel due to it.

If you're getting into a 1v1 duel with an EBR you've already made a mistake.

Yes, the mistake of selecting a light tank in garage.

No, the mistake of taking a knife to a gunfight.

And how can you avoid that? The EBR is faster, and most of the time your team will fail to snipe it while it runs rings around them and you.

I'ts not like you can't see the WV coming to you... The amount of times I've gone off to hunt a passively spotting LT in my EBR and gotten spotted well before reaching them is astonishing. The problem is that the LT will just sit still, as if I was never going to find them, and then they get wrecked because they didn't either react at all or reacted way too late.

Fall back to a point where your team can support you but the enemies can't support their EBR? Just a suggestion, though...
