The thing already has no armor but now they have cut it's top speed by 10kph and took away the top gun package. I see no reason to keep it in my garage.

RIP Detect 3 Enemies in a Battle but removing the big Alpha was probably for the best (Single shot is still good), Speed could have been stayed the same.

is this true? it was the only jap heavy i kept from the whole line. all the rest are crap. it'll be getting sold too, if this is the case. on the bright side, it's got some expensive equiptment on it that i can sell.

Zero sum... to give E 75 10 more speed, O-I Experimental had to lose 10 speed.


There is literally an Xbox 360 in a museum, and this is the best joke you can come up with?

RIP, was a blast to play especially come op time. Gonna give it some love this evening and probably sell it. Won't complain, because this was probably deserved. Just glad I got to play it when it ruled the battlefield. :bajan::harp:
...just along for the ride :child:

I find that it can still be fun with the 12cm, so I kept it. That gun can be hilarious, yesterday I pen'd the side of a T14 and did 498 damage. At long range it drops shells onto the roof of an enemy tank, which can sometimes lead to unexpected results.

O-I X was my favorite Japanese tank. I wondered why I ripped one up with my AT-2 yesterday.  Do they  at least allow you to use the 12cm with the other top options now?

I am very sad to hear that, it was the last TT tier 5 I drove, guess its nothing but Bogy and Pz V/IV from now on!  So many monster tier 5s, wonder what Japan did?  I mean, how dare they have a good tank!? even at tier 5!?  Well, I still have Oi!

Yeah I played a match in it yesterday just to check it out and the 12cm did alright but I was only damaging tanks that with the old top gun I would have decimated. I am still a little miffed about the speed nerf as well. I am on the fence on whether or not I will sell it or not. I have the O-I unlocked, I may just move on up.

You can use the 12cm with all the other upgrades. Or what's left of them. Top packages are with either the 7.5cm type 5 or the 12cm stock howitzer. I prefer the 7.5cm, but I haven't had a bottom tier game yet. That's going to be 'fun'. :sceptic:

It’s still in my garage as former keeper just because I haven’t tried it yet since the big nerf downdate 4.6. But as far as I see - they have ruined the poor O-I Exp to the bottom and when I finally have a chance to try it again, the next thing will be to sell it again. :facepalm:
Don't rush me, I'm waiting for the last moment!

So that's what happened.  I knew it got slowed down but first game I'm on the default package going wthis going on?  Went back and looked and thought maybe I accidentally did it but now that I think of it that has happened after other updates also I just never realized what happened and they changed the top package.  Yeah I miss the speed but it's ok with the 7.5 I've had a couple monster games with it when top tier but it can't really compete against tier 7 anymore.

 

Really why pick on the one good heavy the Japanese had.  If you knew where to shoot it good player could take you out pretty easily.  Tier V,just don't have that many good players so it looked OP.  Tier 7 easily penned it without aiming and it died pretty quickly if not played smartly in those matches.  I was going to grind up the line eventually but probably won't now.  I'll get the maus instead for a giant slow tank even with it's nerfs.

 

I did roll off a cliff yesterday and completly crush a panz IV/V.  That is still a lot of fun.

No, it's a hint to not bother any more with the Japanese Heavies.

The 12 cm gun is a pos. The shell velocity is 290, an M4 derp has 470! You can basically only use it to hit tracked or oblivious enemies now, everything else is moving.

Remember, it's just a game!
