Yes Its a broken record.  You spin my head right round right round like a record  player right round right round .... 

 

I here what nerfs?  and really!! 

 

No no but hopefully grabbed your attention as a paying customer I would like to know why such an ridiculously broken op tank is Tier 6 .   Why does it consistently out perform Tier 8s whenever I face it and needs addressing.  This tank is not a T6 and is far better than any of the T6s and even some T7s I’ve bought.   

 

Surely the better way would be to simply move this tank to T7 with preferential matchmaking.  

 

I cant think anyone who had this tank would complain at such a move apart from the special players.

Most people hate the Absolution passionately or at least understand it's useful to team to make them a priority when they are within sight. So I bet some Absolution drivers have gotten blown up early in several games, realize the tank is in fact not invincible, and are tired of having a bullseye on them every time they play. I still see them very often but not as often.

No, it's not invincible. But can people stop touting the 'it's not invincible' line as if that means it's balanced?

 

Best gun in class and tier - check. 

Best mobility in class and tier - check

Best Armour in class and tier - check.

 

WG even showed that even by their flawed spreadsheets it's over performing at all skill levels relative to its class and tier.

It's one of two or three tanks in the game where actually you have to memorize its armor scheme.  Then it's not so bad.  If you have trouble fighting Absolutuons head on, go fight something else instead.

it's pretty disturbing that you want to know about someone being touched.

I'm not defending the Absolution. I think it would be a benefit to the game if the tank was nerfed. I've just given up on this topic, I guess.

I think it's quite clear you have some issues.

It should have it's mobility severely nerfed. Should be less mobile than the VK36.01H

 

My dislike of +/- 1 pales in comparison to my hatred of Loaded Dice.

As long as they hide at spawn, do nothing so I can circle them and RNG lets me lite them on fire, then they are fine...

Welcome to the forums. Where you can call people stupid, just don't call them passive-aggressive.

I sold mine. Everything penned me even people snap shotting the sides, and the gun wouldn't hit things. Not idea why mine was so crap, just seemed to have really bad luck whenever I used it. I find the Wotjek to be a far better tank in my hands.

Once you learn how to fight it. It's a push over.

Lower plate.

When aiming at the side. It's like an is-3 don't hit the spaced armor aim down at the tracks.

If he's facing you. His turret is weak on the left side of the gun only. As the right is where the Gunner sits I believe and it's up armored.

I used to hate fighting them now I just look at them as an XP pinata

I love hunting absolutions in my Warlord panther.

They get so angry when you pen them, they all seem to tunnel vision into you once they realise what's hurting them.

 

My warlord kills one in my recent review video. It made me happy.
