Over the last few days, I have noticed this tank not playing quite the same. say it ain't so on the nerf and hopefully my internet has been the issue. It has not felt as quick to accelerate and not penning as it was before. Aimed shots flying wild as well. recent games only at 12% win rate as well.

This tank needs major nerfs all around.. It outclasses most tanks and is idiot proof to play. Frontal armor nerf, reload nerf, and top speed for sure.

so you want it to become a tank with zero strengths, just 100% weaknesses.

 

:facepalm:

 

the tank is only strong in one direction, & can be penned in that one direction. it already has weaknesses that are as big as its strengths.

Frontal armor is trash and some urban legend except the turret front when hull down on a ridge using gun depression.

Reload is OK. TVP needs un-nerf.

Top speed is OK as is. It’s the only real strength considering the low pen and alpha. 

The Machine is about average on the most main stats in nerf barometer among T-X heavies and there are many which are better. And actually it’s better to get one Machine first and play it before giving recommendations. Not only based on the Machines who have killed you so you want them nerfed.

The Motherland is idiot proof. The Machine is not.

So you were killed twice by someone who plays The Machine. Understand the pain. :hiding:

Is it just me or they are all over the place? Each side seems to have at least three of them. They are usually the first ones to die too.

Doesn't the last stage of the contract come to a close soon? Probably everyone finishing it off.

Stats from wotinfo (PS4):

 

2nd in WR%

3rd in Damage Ratio

4th in K/D

4th in Hit Ratio

4th in Destroyed/Battle

5th in Avg Damage

1st in Spotted enemies

2nd in Efficiency Rating

 

If that's average.. what is good or excellent?

 

Yes, I think it should be nerfed. My main problem with the tank is the reload speed which is just too fast for a auto-loading heavy tank. After it has emptied its clip you can only get 2-3 aimed shots on it even in a medium tank before it has a full clip again. I can't fathom how someone could think this was okay. The big difference to a TVP is that you don't have to aim your shots on a TVP, it's much more exposed after emptying its clip, let alone all the hull-down potential this tank has.

 

The amount of yolo-machines is just ridiculous. The worst thing is they all sling nothing but premium ammo, so they can just auto-aim through the UFP of any medium tank. Out of facing a well over a thousand of these things, I've once seen a player shoot regular rounds.

All I know is that when I see a Machine near me he becomes my immediate target. He's dangerous. The only place on the front of a Machine that I've found easy to penetrate is the cupola.

I only use regular rounds.

But of course he needs a nerf.

The tank is so broken that it gets the least destruction by amorak.

The armor is just awezome, a heavy tank, with the speed of a light, the barrier of a medium and the damage of a heavy.

I only meet that in t110e3. And the worst is that it pierces me very easily where I have 350mm of armor. I think we should review all that.

I only load 12 premium rounds and that’s when it’s 2x T10 do, otherwise it’s only 8.

That's your experience? Really?

 

I've seen quite different things, including a tournament where the number of Machines was specifically restricted to one per team. I wonder at what times you play and on what server, because all the Machines I see are game-breakers. Granted, many of them are driven by idiots, but even they manage to break maps.

 

Seriously, where can I see this "average" Machine you are describing?

Please don't give recommendation just because you managed to kill a Machine once.
