I'm not even sure I'd grind the Italian line if they were identical to their PC counterparts, but if they're nerfed, especially anywhere near to the same degree as the Progetto 46, I'll certainly be passing.

Actually these tanks are quite bad in DpM, it's gonna be REALLY fun if they nerf them, considering how frequent are the K-91, the Obj.268 v4, the 60TP and other recent additions in high tier battles :rolleyes:

Some might say i'm not constructive enough... Too bad i'm actually a deconstructivist

I'm only getting on right away to destroy the lower tier Italian tanks as soon as I can, while I can, for the Master Tanker ribbon.  Trying to get lower tier tanks that no one plays anymore was an absolute pain for a couple of those nations "Expert" ribbons.

^That's exactly what i would do. Many people asked me why i didn't lacked any low tier tank for that bucket list, and that's exactly my "trick".

 

Besides, i do love to test them on myself because well, sometimes one can find hidden gems like the 40TP actually is.

This for me too. Although Brothers not working today so when he wakes up i can grind on my Alt instead. I plan to play some FF7 too.

Have the stats been announced yet? Do we know how hard they were hit by the nerf hammer?

No but the video is showing off the PC stats so we can be prepared to complain to WG about it. The tier 8 has the same DPM as the Progetto which is 1800 with worse aim time and interclip reload so it will likely get nerfed and the tier 10 if it also get's a 27% DPM nerf will have the same DPM as a tier 2. Therefore you might as well stay at the tier 2.

You would think after the forums lighting up in protest against giving tanks that level of handicap would be enough to make them reconsider.

 

Naturally that means it's almost certainly going to be nerfed.

 

As for the itallian line, no I'm not going to play them. I wasn't amazed with what I saw on PC. Too styled for campy gameplay I just abhor having to do.


MOEs so I can pretend like they matter

The thing on the vid of CloneGuy is that he is playing the Progetto 46 like a normal autoloader! And his next fault is that he always shoot all 3 shoots and always use the first (longest reload) as a single shoot. The italian tier 8 to 10 are one of the to playing tanks cause of the new Aotoloading mechanics (this also confirms the unicoms from PC). Im also on learning how to play it. I alway try it like this:

  • 1st Reload the clip with all 3 shells (battle begin)
  • 2nd If i can fire at enemys i mostly shoot 1 or 2 shells and never all 3 shells (cause u cant 1 klipp the most tanks and when u shoot all 3 reload is on his longest run) 
  • 3rd I only use my whole klipp when i see i can kill an enemy (average DMG stats 240x3= 720) or when i can help a teammate and i also can hide behind buildings, rocks or else to reload the complete klipp
  • 4th If im in reload and im 2 seconds away to finish the 2nd shell never shoot! Wait to finish this 2 seconds than shoot only 1 shell or all 2 if enemy have got only 480 HP
  • 5th Never play it like an normal autoloader like AMX 13 90, BC 25t or other normal autoloaders
  • 6th if u like to play it more like a singleshooting tank alway do the whole reload at 1st and only use the 1st shoot cause at the 1st shoot is the reloadingtime shortest
  • 7th The reloading time isnt as bad as u think. With food, and rammer my reload is near like 12/10/8 and if u look at the vid from me u will see if u are full reloaded and shoot only the 1st shoot the reload of this 1 shell is only 6,5 or 7 seconds ;)

 

The most guys dont know how to play it and that is the mimimi what we always hear here in this forum of the new italian tanks

I also have to learn this new loading mechanic and i give my best.

Sorry for my bad english :)

Here is a vid from me how i play it (sry quality isnt the best). Dont be bad to me cause im also on learning the new loding mechanic

Have fun :great:

Next vids i'll do again with share play cause of better quality

I’ll start right from T-I at the first possible play time for me. And I’ll grind all the tiers in the old fashioned way in order to kill all tanks from Italian TT. The first days are the best time for hunting a new TT lower tiers for “Expert: Italy” badge. 


Don't rush me, I'm waiting for the last moment!

Will check nerfs but playing with paper mediums that are crippled from the get go sounds like a waste of time. Busy with The Division 2 so having fun there at least, not tanked in 5 days now. Wohoo!

With a bit of luck and loads of boosts I'm going to try and do this really quickly. Did the Poles in 10 days so hoping for about the same, if they add an On-Track this time should be even quicker.

Waiting to see the rage nerf posts cropping up before investing in the new Italian line.

What is it with all that crying about nerfed Progetto? It is clearly one of the most capable tier VIII premium on console. The numbers are here. Autoreloader mechanism is a thing of tank beauty. Coupled with such wonderful gun accuracy, it makes wonders. I was skeptical at first, but as of now Progetto is my best premium tank. And I have nearly all of them.
