Lots of +2MM games will soon ruin the 'fun' of playing Tier 6 'Iconic' genuine World War II Vehicles in WOT 

these old vintage 80+ year old veteran Tanks don't belong with Tanks from mid 1950's never mind Wargame made up fiction 'modern' Premium T8,s which is so sad really :unsure:

 

Still WG wants 'You' to enjoy playing old vintage WW2 Tanks (big shame WG cannot even for a weekend just give these Tier 6 Tanks just +1MM then yes indeed fun 

*** btw the Jagdpanzer IV should use the short 88m Pak L 56 Gun a big BIG improvement especially in DPM

Why would one ever take a camo net over Vents?

 

Sure you can't in the HC, but then you take rotation over camo net.

 

:confused:

J.PzIV? How to play? how many years too late after no one plays it because its woefully obsolete in current WOT. M18 may still be somewhat viable, but This isn't pre-2015 when Tier 5s and 6s were the tiers to play and 'enjoy'. Those tiers get OP PZV/IVs or +2MM or M44s or all of the above.

Yeah, Camo net... another 2013 equipment when bushes and camo were thing for TDs. Now its a wasted slot if you take camo net. Once you fire your gun, its all the same. But WG wants to live in the past (glory days of WOT) when J.PzIV was still played/relevant in the game, while selling us credits for money and monetizing everything like they do in 2021. Its now pay for rewards (buy improved BP 2021 for all game modes) and not play for rewards like we had in 2019 and 2020.

Why even bother with tier 6? This used to be my favourite back in the day but now, just count the number of M44s at the start of a match, if there's 3 of them on the enemy team you're better off quitting back to the garage and start another game. I don't understand why it takes so long to rebalance mid tier artillery

Once I realised nobody was playing heavies I knew you had screwed up.
P.S. Nerf tier 6 arty - they are wrecking our game.

Ah the good old Hellcat, what a nice tank it was to play, before you WG nerfed it to ground.

With JP4 every frontale hits broke the engine and the armor become useless against Tier 7+ matches for the incredibile spam of gold ammo.

You should do your tank's review looking at the actual meta game and how the game really is (broken and unblanced as hell).

Anyway no surprise to see Hellcat winnning.

 

Moreover, this challenge would have some sense if effectively played with JP4 or M18, what's the point to play with JPE100 or T30??
