I think that the rear armour of the Kaiju has to be put back to 150mm because: It's a premium tank and It can't be nerfed because has no pref. matchmaking, it has the 105mm gun and I would have never bought it if It had had this nerf. So I believe that It has to be brought back to normal because the troll rear armour was it's speciality!

I’m not quite as agitated, but I too bought it back in the day, and it does now suck.

Uhhh I’m pretty sure the Kaiju always had the 10cm (100mm) and not the 15cm (150mm)...

I believe the changes were just armor, and perhaps gun depression. The armor change really is what killed it though...

I read it wrong. OP wanted the rear armor back to 150mm, not the gun. 

 

Eyes dont work like they used to!

How about no. The OI is a monstrosity at tier 6, and needed this nerf. Regarding the “can’t nerf it because it doesn’t have pref MM”, not only should it have been nerfed, they have every right to do so. You signed a EULA when you logged into the game the first time that said so. In fact, there are more than a few other premium tanks, with and without pref MM, that need nerfs. *cough* Tiger 131 *cough* *cough* Panzer V/IV *cough*

The Kaiju is a premium tank and so they have to buff only it, not the OI that can mount the 14cm gun.

Not true. WG in the terms of service has resevered the right to change or modify tanks as they see fit. This includes premiums.

 

They do however attempt to avoid making premium tank nerfs unless absolutely necessary.

the rear armor nerf did make this tank easy to flank unlike before (150mm before made it able to get surrounded  and have a high chance of surviving). but in my opinion, it in no way made this tank bad, it just made it where you could not go in the middle of enemy forces and dominate at tier 6. before the nerf, what i found fun at top tier was, bully the enemies. if they flanked me, i would turn my turret around and use my rear to bounce shots.

in my opinion i think this tank is somewhat balanced, it may need a lil buff here or there. but overall, it is a tank with 150mm of frontal armor and a gun with 175 pen, that does 300 avg damage.

Why are you driving your O-I while facing the rear towards the enemy?

 

Because otherwise you are basically saying you don't want your tank to be capable of being penned by any tanks regardless of if they use smart play to flank it or not, which just shows how poor the mindset is of most that play the Japanese Heavy line in that they believe their tanks should be impenetrable.


Garage : 

'Imagine if this forum had only players who actually win more than lose trying to tell others how to play. Would be the best forum ever. Instead, we have a bunch of morons who lose more often than not trying to tell their betters how to play their tanks.'

'The term "casual gamer" is actually not accurate enough anymore to describe what the larger market is like. They want the illusion of accomplishment, but not the effort associated with it. The players aren't really doing anything, something else is doing it for them, and the player takes the credit for it.

Unfortunately due to EULA they can adjust any premium they like. Just remember this the next time you consider paying new Triple A game prices for one digital tank. I was annoyed too, the rear armor was useful if the last tank standing or flank collapsed, but it's still a very good premium heavy and can still get some bounces from lower cals if you shake dat adze. Not to mention the frontal bewbs, wiggle wiggle slo-mo motorboat brumbrumski. Tank is often painful when bottom tier but so are most heavies.
