While they nerf the stats, WG should also nerf the price...

Of course not, but what should happen and what will happen is rarely the same.

The changes would be far more palatable if they weren't asking for much for it.

That 21,500 package: 10,240 for the Patriot and 11,200 for the defender after discounts. Still tad too high for me, but I bet you will see a ton of these out there despite that.

Not very happy with all those nerfs to the tank... It went from a “must buy” to a “will wait and see the reviews”.

Was going to buy it but will wait now, like you. 

It may save me some gold, actually.

I am certain you are right, personally I will only buy one and a few hours ago I was certain it would be the Defender. Now, not so much...  Maybe I will buy the Patriot instead as it is cheaper and has not been nerfed into the ground. 

 

As I said earlier in this discussion, with those nerfs to the stats the price should also be lowered on the Defender.

+1 And I am sure you and I are not alone in thinking and acting this way because of the unnecessary nerfs.

I bought the gold for the defender and patriot today knowing about the worse gun handling - then found out about the nerfed lower plate...... well that’s a waste of gold...... I’d say either have it with nerfed mobility and armour or with nerfed gun handling, not both!, it’ll be way too situational now - and now way more things are going to be able to pen it’s already majestically large lower front plate......

2 of the 4 nerfs would have been enough.

Luckily I haven't bought the gold yet. If the patriot got screwed over I won't have to buy any gold.

Buys gold to purchase overpowered tanks  --  finds out the tanks are 1% less effective than previously thought  =  rages about nerfs as if they still won't buy the bundle....

When a tank is priced as much as the Defender one expects a very good tank, the nerfs may make it less than a good tank and that is not very fun when one considers how much it costs.

It is quite a big change. It will have to be at near point blank range to hit due to that accuracy change which will make it easier to flank, and a 10mm reduction to the lower plate should make a difference. WG did well, it will still be powerful but people will have to play it with a little bit of thought at least.

Armour and traverse is better than the fatherland

Standard round have more pen premium 5mm less

Longer reload but more damage.

Fatherland is 15428 gold while the defender is only 14000.

 

Personally I am not going to buy it but I am also glad it isn't op.

Seems to be around the same price as others in its class

Looking at the other Tier VIII premium heavy's in its class it is around the same

I have always respected your opinions and I am not exactly awesome at this game in any way, so I trust what you have to say about this. Even if you say the tank will be quite powerful, being in the hands of the RNG-gods every single shot is not exactly fun. So would you still recommend the Defender to someone like me that likes heavy armour but lacks the skill and abilities to play really well? I love the HMH heavy French tank for instance as it has armour and pack enough power to hurt most tanks. 

 

So would you recommend me to still hold on to my decision to buy the Defender or the Patriot? I wonder as my wife will only give me one as a birthday gift.
