Don't buy it, I wish they would advertise these nerfs on the main page when you log into the game cause I never come to the forums for that info. I assumed I was getting the same tank as PC and now am super disappointed. Fatherland is better imo and it was given away for free!

They're never going to advertise something that would make them lose revenue.  You can also find out most of the in-game values just by pressing triangle/Y on the tank bundle to inspect the armor and other stats.  The only issue is on the armor sometimes it stays the same color despite a 10mm difference.

 

Either way if you're going to buy something you should do you due diligence and research it.  But go ahead and contact WG support and see if they have pity on you and refund you, let us know how it goes.  But judging by your stats it seems like the tank is working perfectly fine for you and you are happy with your purchase.

Fatherland is not better, different but not better. But I do agree with you to a certain extent as the Defender was over nerfed. 

 

And Fatherland was not free, it costed a lot of time, luck and energy for many people and money for those without time. I purchased it because I am not able to play tanks as much as I would like and definitely not participate in a stupid lottery.

Was going to post about that before but decided not to bother... He have better stats on his defender than on his fatherland

People are low-level hurt because they didn't get the broken, OP "push forward on the stick and win" Tank that all the YouTube celebrity gamers told them to buy......and they forgot PC is a whole different game.

I actually agree on this even though I still feel that the nerf-hammer may have hit the Defender just a tad too hard. But I do not know all the numbers from all those battles in recent days so I may be wrong. To my untrained eye, the Defender is a good tank and I enjoy it very much! My only wish is that the lfp may have been a little smaller, now anyone can autoaim straight through it. But all in all, I am happy about both the Defender and the Patriot and this time it really seems that WG did it as correct as anyone can ask for. I am still salty that the Nameless only has 5 degrees of gun depression and I hope they will buff that tank in the future since it is just not fun to play. The Defender do not suffer from anything like that!

getting penned frontally by tier 7's isnt nice.

 

neither is having sub-100 meter shots eat dirt every 12.8 seconds.

 

is it meant to be strong frontally ? . . . . . . .    because it has this massive front plate that isnt.

I am sadly aware, just want to show that I really think that the ridiculously low gun depression for such a tall tank really kills the joy of playing it. And secondly, I do not get the hate for the anime tanks at all! They are probably more realistic that half the tanks in the game that someone at WG based on a scribble made on used toilet paper. The Nameless, Edelweiss and the GuP tanks are all cool additions to the game as this is not a historical simulator. The historical tanks in game do not even perform as they should because of balance and such so why all the hate on the anime tanks!? Skip the last part, I do not want to hear all the childish reasons against anime tanks since I already remember them and most of the reasons where just pure crying. I do not think a handful of tanks from anime destroys the game or even has more than a very minor impact on the game, barely noticeable even.

Are you certain you hit it? Remember that the tank comes with instructions saying “do not fire from further than 5 meters”! I actually joke since I like the tank and I am happy that lfp actually bounced something.

It makes me wonder how many of these same people would complain that the defender was crappy even if it didn’t get a marginal nerf.

This is sarcasm, right? Otherwise you're just proving his point, especially with that comment about being penned in the front lower plate by a one lower tier tank.

In a new hiatus of Wot. See you when the bunch of incompetents at WGC finally figure out how to do their work and balance the game.

Are you serious? Are you really saying that a tier 7 just has to commit suicide when it comes to a defender? No chance? Wow, you're a real sportsman :D
