This is especially in relation to the Matilda IV, i mean really? A matilda shouldnt go 30kph forwards! Surely if that tank needs buffing, which it does, you should buff the penetration?!

Just a friendly reminder that it has 86mm of penetration and 102mm on premium ammo. WG this isnt tier 5 medium tank penetration

I dunno... but 50 more HP and 2° of more turret traverse has transformed the Zizka into the best Tier VI vehicle. Crazy, I know... absolutely bonkers.

This is worth watching & will answer many vehicle balancing questions:

My own personal motto of "never trust a guy who seems like he has come out from Nickelback or Papa Roach" gets proven to be right again.

 

Heh, and worked with Sega? That explains EVERYTHING. Poor decision taking ahoy!

I traded for the zizka a few months back. Couldn't believe how good it was.... bordering on OP for a decent player. Hilarious that it got buffed.

But what if the enemy tank you are fighting is far away and you have to use prem. How's that situation going after the buff?

MOEs so I can pretend like they matter

THANK YOU!

finally someone gets it.

Everyone and their dog complained about that tank when it came out.

 

I think it's pretty deadly.

Unnecessary buff as usual.

WG classic balance.

shhhh... 

*whispers*

Just between you and me, I was being facetious. I didn't anticipate folks actually liking the vehicle. 

I'm feeling a bit awkward... tbh.

A 30 kph Matilda?  The hell? :amazed:

I asked an EOD man how he dealt with the stress of his job. 

 

He said he didn’t have any stress. Either he was right or else it became someone else’s problem.

I guess that’s not much more than the historical top road speed of Matildas.  A speed boost just seemed odd.

They don't choose it, they plug the numbers into a spreadsheet and it spits out a result.

If you think the game is balanced by rational human beings think again.

It's a tier 5, the Armour is useless anyway might as well give it the ability to actually move.

Ummm, thought it would take a lot more than that to transform that tank....

If you have more the 15k games played you shouldn't be playing a matilda. Let the guys just starting have some decent tanks too.

I actually have it 2 marked, so a buff is certainly nice.

Shame they did nothing about the gun depression.


You can PM with with questions, if you wish. I don't bite.
