Very interesting new mechanics. Also, this new branch is really looks like a French heavy line. But they have armor. Can't wait to test it on common test later! :D

Good looking tanks untill tier 9 but ther tier 10 is one of the uglyest tank i ever see. Really, why give it an half turret?

Call me very disappointed

"... that don't break the current balance." Now THAT was funny.

BTW Will you be addressing the wheelies problem?

So, if i understand correctly, a symbol in the shell reloading number is present and indicatats that, after some time, if i shot while still reloading, i can reload next shell in half the time?

Yeahhhhh, there is no way these will be balanced. Better Autoreloader beats the regular mag loader by far, mobility looks way too good, and apparently the armor is, too. The premium one in particular looks, from its stats, to essentially be what happened if you combined the strengths of pershing, t32 and spaghetto, then upped them for good measure.

 

Only way to make these balanced is by completely redoing the balance of ALL the old tank lines/premiums.

That tier 8 premium tank seems like a tier 8 Super Conqueror, with an autoloader. I'm sure it will bring balance to tier 6-7 tanks.

Um, good stuff, but can someone explain to me about the other tank that showed after the T9?! What's that one for? Is it the T10?

I know WG want some more variety and complexity, but this autoreloading bonus seems 1) just a tad bit too powerful. Autoreloaders are already by a long shot the best way of loading shells in the game, why make it better? 2) At first glance it just looks weirdly convoluted.

So the prem tier 8 ita heavy memer seems to have quite interesting armor, that will definitely won't "break the balance" of the game, nah, seems fine to me!

Balance? Your testing your new stand-up routine on us, admit it.

Indeed... why not to keep it simple like either Italian Meds or Is-3A? Just play with reloading inside the clip a little...

Dunno, maybe it’ll work...:ohmy:

Potentially gamebreaking.

Let's see if 48% wr supertesters save the day.

Yes, the second one, with 490 alpha will be the tier X one.
