I was amused to see just now that my Valentine has now been reduced from Tier IV to Tier III and no longer has its 75mm gun option, but retains its very effective 2 lbr and 6 lbr gun options

I always liked my Val and found it almost as good as my Matilda, so I can see a golden future for it, unless WG nerfed other things.

Any other new and exciting changes at low tiers that I have not yet spotted?

Pz 1C quite nerfed. Depending on what you classify as low tiers tthe addition of a UK derp tank at t5. If you find out if it's good or bad do tell me...

The complete reshuffling of the British "cruiser" tanks; the new tier 4 baby-Sherman "T6 Medium" with a 105 mm derp... :popcorn:

Haha, played one game in it and 1.3k damage isn't even enough to push me in the 99% for average damage.

 

Enjoy that one while it lasts.

The old Val was always above average at Tier IV and the new Val is now absurdly good at Tier III

In just a few games I have picked up a High Calibre, a Steel Wall, and won 3 out of 4, firing exclusively 2 lbr AP on the stock gun.  Made 20K credits in the last game.

Obviously I am a remarkably good player, but perhaps not that good.  I don't think that WG have thought this one through!

Nice one.

 

The Valentine is a tad too slow for me I think, although I currently don't have any normal MM tier 3s

Just bought an M6 Medium and mounted the 105mm derp.

Hilarious.  350 damage every shot with HEAT.

What were WG thinking?

"We need to motivate new players to leave the lower tiers as quickly as possible" :popcorn:

After a few games in the M6 Medium I think I can safely say that it is hilarious.

Unlike the Hetzer it has a turret and unlimited shell capacity.

But it shares the same ability to pump 105 mm HE or HEAT into unsuspecting victims.  In my last game I put 476 damage with a single shot into the side of a KV1 turret, not bad for a littl'un.  Intriguingly the turret pen also knocked out the tracks, but I guess you have to take whatever logic you get in the game and be thankful for it

It's something of a tribute to the Sherman design that it now features all the way from Tier IV to Tier VIII

In reality I think it did duty in various forms for at least 30 years.  One of the greatest tank designs ever.
