Every discussion about HE Reworks, Crews and Arty are WORTHLESS, we know that very well. WG will do what they planned... So...  :popcorn:

I love how everyone complains about Gold (Which actually isn't that much of a problem) and it's only mostly the Unicum/Super Unicum players who realise that HE is the actual biggest problem in this game. FVs and all other HE tanks take no skill to play and you can just snap someone for 400+ without any regard for aim, even if hull down.

 

At least now I can sit in front of 60TPs/FV4005s in my Chieftain and actually do something instead of slowly dying for free to no skilled monkeys spamming HE.

Chieftain and 279e owners definetly would be happy about this ...  make hulldown monsters even stronger, gj wg :) in result load more gold shells ... :) and using maus as example is just poor choice as it has enought week cheeks as weakspot and poor mobility making easy taget witout even using he .. biggest enemy for super heavys and hulldown tanks always has been and is artilery and gold spam ... :)

"As a result, firing HE shells at well-armored areas of enemy vehicles will become less effective—it will be impossible to cause as much damage as before. Just like Armor-Piercing (AP) shells, you will have to aim at vulnerable spots and wait for a good moment to cause high damage."

Would be a great change had there not been incredibly OP tanks that are impossible to damage frontally without HE. Instead of prioritizing HE changes they should rework some of the stupidly armored tanks like Chieftain and 279, and maybe then, when there are no obviously overpowered tanks, you could rework the HE.

I especially love how he tries to paint himself as the victim of 'no skilled monkeys spamming HE', while driving a freaking chieftain (most likely with full gold apcr). That along with 279 is still and will always remain one of the most toxic vehicle, closely tied with the REEEEEBRs.... But then again, not much surprise from this playerbase.

 

Still I guess we can all be 'happy' for guys like him, as now they'll have even more chance to brutally goldspam the rest of the players...

Saying 279E is impossible to damage frontally is hilarious

I don't think these changes will affect dealing with 279es in a negative way, as there's no thinly armored "deck" you could previously splash shooting at its turret frontally.

Russians, as I've heard, because HE-spamming is a bigger problem there than on EU. The same thing happened with the Progetto nerf.
