the sandbox has led to some truly game breaking tanks, just look at Dez Gamez videos so i am wondering how you guys might set up your favourite tanks?

 

DPM tortoise for example

invisible elc's with 60%+ camos

laser leopard?  strv?

 

just curious

Not planned much in terms of builds other then what I have tested. But more waiting for 2nd and 3rd tests to see what direction they want to take it before I go that way.

from my previous experience in test servers, 1.0 sandbox, arty sandbox do you really think they will change much?

i reckon this is 95% finalised regardless of any feedback

That depends on the feedback. And so far it's mostly bad. As it shifts power the wrong way on already broken tanks with the current variant. But with HE they did a test with no HE pen, and with lots of HE pen. As in anything from useless to broken to find the spot between. So it remains to be seen if they go that way here or not. Or even stop testing to reconsider, based on the feedback. As we have also seen that before.

IMO things are going to change as some combinations and slot types are far from good.

But, for what I saw, if things stays the same, I'm likely going to convert KV-4, ST-1, IS-4 and Maus from firepower to pure tanking with increased HP, spall liner and VStab. I can sacrifice DPM for better survivability. 

I would say that VStab became the only must have equipment piece for HTs and MTs.

i would like the ability to choose your tank style boosts as well, being forced into certain set of boosts is boring and frankly not how I want to play the game.

 

My game, i will play it how I want please

I am just looking forward to the 100 of millions of credits refunded for all the equipment I have now.

And premium tanks should be exempt from these changes so should stay on old equipment as that's how they where when received.

No thanks, my T34 feels much better with improved VStab and Turbo to boost its handicaps.

I hope it doesn't get implemented, but if it does then Google will be my friend as I search to find the combinations that have worked for others.

 

1) Not really excited about the idea. 

2) Think it will do more harm than good.

3) Will further unbalance the game with regards to skilled (people who want to make the effort) vs non skilled (people who just want to push W and click)

 

Given these three points it probably means that they'll implement the changes.

I don't give a sh1t about this changes cause I am sure WG will find a way to screw things up and turn this into a fiasco. Also, as long as EBR's are still in the game it's irrelevant what combination you use on your tank, F1 cars will sh1t on you just like they do now.

The EBR 75 will be quite fun with bond optics, improved radio set, designated target perk and directive and either bounty vents or the equipment that increases moving cammo.

what compensation lol, you may hope that all of your equipment will get demount-ed for free at best, then you can sell all that crap yourself or do whatever you want with it.

curious, i would go full camo on it as camo bonuses are far more powerful than view range bonuses

I will demount everything from my ELC EVEN 90 and go cry in the corner of my garage (damn I want my garage back and get out of the woods!)

 

Second time WG murders and ELC. Thanks WG for making F2P a pain! Just give me the option to mount binos and a net on my ELC!

I dunno. I don't play my EVEN 90 with Binoculars and Camo Net on live, and I'm doing rather well in it. I'll likely drop my Vstab for either Low Noise Exhaust or Improved Radio, and continue mounting Optics and Vents as normal. Already using Deadeye Designated Target and Food.

 

My Super Pershing is going to get a Turbocharger. My KV-5 will probably get one too, together with its existent Spall Liner, and make rams great again. And I might similarly go for a mobility-oriented IS-7 with 20-22 specific power.

 

But among favourites... I'm going for an accuracy-oriented 4005, with buffed reverse speed. For King and Country.

Top speed booster on anything slow like Maus or Type 5 is going to be fun. Maus having Type 5's speed and Type 5 having E 100's speed is going to make a noticeable difference; the difference is actually pretty big between Maus and Type 5 and between Type 5 and E 100. 

 

Maus/Type 5 can also get away with sacrificing VStabs since they are slow (even with top speed booster), so something like HP booster could be nice (+300 HP allows you to tank at least one extra shot in most cases; the equipment is likely pretty pointless on anything than these two though and its probably only useful on these because of the fact that they can live without VStabs) or maybe the buffed spall liner, in which you would probably have an argument for dropping the medkit for a 2nd repair kit (or in Maus' case, for having ability to run both AFE and food).

 

Gun rammer is still going to be necessary on almost anything IMO, though. Most heavies and basically all MTs will still want to run VStabs as well, so there's going to be little variety within the first two slots. Its basically just the 3rd slot that will now see a lot more variety, but even then both Vents and Optics will still be among the best options. A lot of the new and/or improved equipment are going to be either still not worth the time or at best be very niche.

I'll make my E-50m as little min-maxed as possible, thank you.
