-AMX 65 t  - French Tier VIII Heavy Tank

-AMX M4 mle. 51 - French Tier IX Heavy Tank

Tank changes:

M4 Improved:

  • Updated its matchmaking and now has PMM (Only plays up to Tier 6)

Brick:

  • Fixed an issue with the frontal gun depression where the barrel was avoiding an invisible object.
  • Slightly improved the gun depression in all directions
    • Gun position: Old gun depression -> New gun depression
      • 0 degrees: 5 -> 5.2 degrees
      • 27.1 degrees: 4 ->5.2 degrees
      • 160 degrees: 0 -> 3 degrees
      • 200 degrees: 2 -> 3 degrees
      • 223 degrees: 5.5 -> 5.2 degrees
      • 360 degrees: 5 -0> 5.2 degrees
      • Removed several positions that had less than 5 degrees of gun depression so that it maintains 5.2 degrees in most directions except over the rear deck
    • Gun depression value for the gun will now correctly display: 5.2
      • Previously it displayed 7 degrees which was caused by the invisible object that has been removed.

 

Game changes:

-Removing the New Year’s garage from the game

-End of Trade in Event

 

Thanks

No reason to play the new french heavies. Nerfed, again for whatever weird reason. These vehicles are hardly played on PC from what i have seen but i guess making more obsolete tier Xs is the new marketing scheme

Badger had an unneeded nerf. Yet again hardly played on PC and nerfed.

M4 PMM was a good idea

Brick... doesn't matter it's a merc

Hopefully the trade-in scheme will be modified before coming back :)

 

Sorry, not to impressed. I thought we left 4.6 in the dark but it seems that it is ever present.

And the point in buffing the Brick is?

I've never seen one

Looks to be another lackluster update again

Brick was a bad Tank. Whether it's still one i have no idea.

The AMX 65T's 100mm gun reload is too long, also why doesn't the FV4005 have enough rounds to kill everyone?

Sound updates, more often than not, are done in the bigger updates and not weekly server downtime’s.

I have the regular version of the Adler, and I like it quite a bit. But yes, it is bundled with 25 Each of the 3x XP Boosts and 4x Crew Boosts. The Wraith "deal" is inflated by 35 of each. So while it is 50% savings, that includes a pretty hefty pile of Boosts. Much like yourself, I'm still working my way through the large pile of Boosts that I already have. 

 

As for the rest of the Update:

 

French Heavies I'm ready to go with the XP to unlock the Tier VIII. Badger can be unlocked and Tortoise sold. Both good things from where I sit. 

 

For those that own the Improved M4, good for them on getting the PMM. Looks like that tank needed it. Happy for the Brick owners as well, as that's another tank that looks like it could use the help. 

 

Already own the Premium Tech Tree tanks, and the "deals" are too inflated with boosts to consider. Iron Rain Borsig.....   something to think about - maybe on sale down the road. Happy to see the New Years garage go back to normal, and I didn't trade in anything so that doesn't really impact me. 

 

All in all, not bad for a Tuesday.
