Good. The tank was broken op and ruined the lower tiers.

It was as fast and manouverable as some mediums, had a gun that destroyed every tank it met. 

 

Yea it was fun

 But we all knew it needed nerfing.

I preferred the O-I but glad I aced the O-I Exp before the nerf.  One kill away from a Pool's Medal, I shot the wrong tank :(

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:

Leave it to WarGaming to RUIN yet another tank because of all the little snowflakes that get on the forums and cry about something being OP.  WarGaming, please grow a backbone and stand firm on leaving tanks the way they originally come out.  It is for this very reason that I stopped giving this company any of my hard earned cash.

I agree that the O-I Exp has been power creeped and nerfed hard.

They need to give it the armor that the PC version has.
Take a look at the armor values. Here is the console version:
https://console.worl...apan/J23_Mi_To/
And here is the PC version:
http://wiki.wargamin.../Tank:J23_Mi_To

I stress again, it needs the better armor. It has to feel like a heavy tank, as a proper step up from the tank before into the line of super heavys. But now it feels like an oversized medium tank with a lethargic engine that is perhaps a worst pinata than the TOG.

I used to love 1 shotting tanks with the jap line. Now it’s just too slow and not as powerful as it used to be :(

It's a joke now, out-spotted one who just sat there like a lemming while I shredded his turret with regular AP on the VK28, which isn't renown for its pen.

It is interesting...I thought the O-I series were (and still are) some of the easiest tanks in the game to kill.  

 

I just killed an O-Ni the other day by myself and it was comical.   I took one shot at the front of it from 100m to get it's attention...then I backed into a valley and waited.  Of course, a tier VII super heavy seeing a tier VI medium (VK 30.01 D) just sitting there in a valley by itself was too tempting....so it came after me as expected....and I just sat there in the valley waiting for it.   I let it come all the way to me.  Once it crested the valley (about to come down into it), I took a shot at the underside of it, then simply pulled right up next to it.   12 shots later(no misses, all penned from point blank)...it was dead.  The tank never hit me.  The only damage it did was track damage as I kept bumping into it trying to stay as close to it as possible.   Those tanks sit up high, and have horrible gun depression to the side.  In a smaller tank, you can basically drive right up next to them, put your barrel INSIDE of the tank, and go to town.

2 MOE's: Indien-Panzer (VIII), T-20 (VII), Cromwell B (VI), Snakebite (VI), T-37 (VI), M4 Sherman w/Derp (V), VK 16.02 Leopard (V)

I always felt the O-I Exp. was a reward for suffering through the a-s pain called the Type 91 and Type 95. But now after the NERF it is not that great of a tank any more although it is still much better than those two.

It used to be good with the 7.5cm gun , it was like a big Medium and you could pelt people with that quick firing gun, because they expected the derp.....

Now when I see an O-I Exp it's just a matter of beating my team mates to it to farm the Damage lol

I saw one with the 7.5cm decimate my team recently on Prok. They pretty much stayed at the Red spawn the whole match and just farmed damage with that terribly inaccurate gun. He/she had good spotters and that allowed them to keep their distance and they just had a heck of a match. It's rare to see but it does happen from time to time. Normally they are just an big HP pinata.

Maybe WG can "split the difference" and give 7KPH back, and increase spotting range by 50 meters.  It still wouldn't be OP as previously with fast 100mm gun, but would at least have a chance.

This tank is a weird one. The whole concept is just mind boggling - a very fat but rather nimble tank with practically no armour. The first time I played the tank was after the nerf, which I didn't know about anyway. Had no expectations simply put. For a reason I still don't quite understand, I had some great games and always enjoyed playing with it. Maybe I somehow played differently than usual, or the opponents thought the tank is a complete turd, but I still have my only Pool's medal with O-I Exp.
