Greetings commanders,

 

The most recent update brought extensive changes to a number of vehicles. Some vehicles changed their tier, some vehicles changed their type, which resulted in changes to their technical characteristics. All low-tier vehicles, without exception, had their durability increased.

Such extensive changes affected the performance of particular vehicles as expected. According to the statistics from live servers, additional adjustments are required; so at the Supertest players will see vehicles that were most affected by the update. You can see the list of additional adjustments below. 

 

The list of vehicles and the adjustments are as follows (all changes are provided for the top configurations of the vehicles): 

 

U.S.S.R.

BT-7: Improved the firepower characteristics 

Changed the hull traverse speed from 54 to 52 deg/s  

Changed dispersion during movement and on hull traverse from 0.2 to 0.16 

Increased the turret traverse speed from 38 to 40 deg/s 

Changed the reload time of the 45 mm 20K gun from 2.1 to 1.9 s  

Changed the gun accuracy from 0.45 to 0.42 

Decreased the dispersion after firing a shot

 

A-20: Improved the spotting and firepower characteristics

Decreased the dispersion after firing a shot

Increased the turret traverse speed from 28 to 31 deg/s 

Changed the depression angle of the 85 mm S-31M gun from -3.5 to -5 deg

Decreased the dispersion after firing a shot 

Changed the accuracy of the QF 6-pdr Gun Mk. V from 0.41 to 0.37  

Decreased the dispersion after firing a shot  

Changed the aiming time from 2.3 to 2 s

Changed the top and reverse speed from 50/20 to 55/22 km/h respectively 

Changed the dispersion during movement from 0.24 to 0.21  

Changed the gun accuracy of the OQF 3-inch Howitzer Mk. I from 0.55 to 0.49

Changed the penetration values of the standard/special shells from 63/101 to 86/112 mm respectively.

Changed the reload time of the QF 40 mm Mk. VI Bofors gun from 6 to 7 s.
Changed the dispersion value from 0.41 to 0.43—the decrease of the characteristics was performed to balance the increased damage and penetration values

 

Cruiser IV: The changes affected this vehicle, since it has the same modules and shells as the Covenanter  

Changed the damage per shot for the QF 40 mm Mk. VI Bofors gun from 50 to 60  

Changed the penetration values of the standard/special shells from 63/101 to 86/112 mm respectively

About time. But first question that comes to mind is: why couldn't these changes be done in the three months leading up to 1.9 release after Sandbox was concluded?

 A-20: Improved the spotting and firepower characteristics 

 

The A-20 needs the VT-43 as top gun, it is the same model to the VT-42, so no excuse not to do this. T-50 is OP what so ever with that gun, A-20 would not either.

 BT-7: Improved the firepower characteristics 

 

Needs other guns than the selection of tier 3 level guns, think of something.

Give it the VT-42 from the A-20 as it's top gun and or a shot 76mm.

Crusader: Improved the spotting and firepower characteristics

Covenanter: Improved the spotting and firepower characteristics 

 

Both tank are and were perfectly balanced on the tier they were ate: tier 4 and 5 respectively.

 

Both tanks should be REVERTED back, idem for the tier 4 cruiser, to their former tiers.The A-64 Light Tank, currently in ST as a premium, needs to be made a regular tank and be put in the vacant spot at tier 6 in the UK light tank tech tree line.

 

That...is the only logical thing to do and the only way to truely balance things.

Although it's speed & p/w were historically correct, it is good to see this little adjustment for comfort sake.

 

 

Wow I I written more proper feedback again, without swearing this time around.

This guy is asking real questions over here :P

I bought IS-4 and now I am waiting for those buffs so I can do some damage without getting any. It's just perfect that way, oh yes XD

We told you a month ago that these tanks are underperforming during the public tests of 1.9 but you have conveniently ignored us. Instead of wasting time on the Supertest we could have tested the changes on the Public test like we always did with minor balance tweaks previously.

By the way from the preliminary patchnotes it looks like you've forgot to remove the 105 mm derp from the T6 Medium.

From my perspective A-20 is fine already. Don't see a need to buff it. The dispersion after firing is the only that i would improve at this fast reloading gun. 3.5 base dispersion after fireing is way too much.

If we are going to have the Crusader at tier 6, it should have the 500hp version of the Meteor they tested it with.

58 kph is nice, but when is it going to reach that.
