Only really meaningful change in the entirety of the patch notes is that the 121 will be capable of looking down a little bit for the first time in it's lifespan. Other than that instead of doing some proper balance changes there were only buffs to stock guns on tank lines probably everyone already owns as well as very minimal changes to other tanks like the 113 getting the smallest dpm buff ever quite nearly :rolleyes: anyone else feeling a bit let down after WG hyped up the update? oh and can't forget the fact that you only need 10 stages complete to get the OBJ 279e so prepare to see everyone and their mother driving one come time it's out.....

Can’t help but feel that WG’s definition of “balance” is a bit different from the community’s...

 

Nothing done to the Italian line

E50 still horribly over nerffed (seriously, how often do you see them now?)

 

etc, etc, etc...

 

A let down and, sadly, a predictable one.

I don't believe those were the complete patch notes. Lets not go overboard with the negative hype yet...............

I think you’ll find they are - they’re on the official webpage.

I'm happy about the changes to the 113, 121, and T-34-2. Other than that, I agree that these changes are a bit light. There are many broken tanks that got zero attention. I guess we can wait for a future patch...which will be coming "soon."

Performing as intended! Italians slightly over performing! Performance targets being met! :teethhappy:

 

Just brilliant

Only the stock packages got a buff on the WZ-120. In fact, this makes the stock tank better than the fully upgraded tank, as the 122mm is so bad for no discernible reason. Getting a 50 alpha advantage over other tier 9 mediums shouldn't mean having a longer aim time than 183mm guns, among other negatives. Heavy tanks like the T-10 do the WZ-120's job better by being just as fast or faster and having better armor/gun characteristics. The WZ-120 is one of the most power-creeped mediums in game, and it wasn't good to start with.

Lets be honest, if we have played this game this long, we know WG "updates" are a let down. 

 

So why have such high hopes, to be disappointed?

 

They will not balance ANY tank that is popular to the potato base. PERIOD! Too far gone to upset the small player base. 

 

Forget about it. No 183 nerf, TD nerfs, don't waste your time.

 

But they can buff the tanks that need it, you know the ones that barely get played cos WG neutered them like idiots.

 

Shame on you all for playing bad tanks well!

Just’ve read the patch notes. Ummm, does that look like 3 month of hard work to make the game more appealing for all groups of players? Not for me. As always, nice and very appreciated to see bug fixes, balance tweaks. But its a usual routine.
What’s really new? Dynamic ratings looks useless. Now if I pick say camo net I can see... like +n points to concealment. So? Its just some points, not meaningful meters or something. I think what would be much more informative is show item related specs and how they get boosted in terms of meters, seconds, mm and so on. Not just points.

Every buff or nerf brings salt.

ENOUGH with the buffs and nerfs!

Just assign each tank a power rank and base matchmaking on that!

Not just forty of the 700 or so, give a strength value to all of them.  Then you also get balanced matchmaking without any further effort.

There is no need at all for buffs and nerfs!

I mean overall it is not as bad as previous patches. They didn't nerf anything into an unplayable state (TVP, 132-1, AMX 30b) which I consider a win. The 113, 121, and 430U tunings seem about right for the tanks. Averages out the power level rather than overbuffing or nerfing. The Type 61 change looks very interesting and I will certainly try that out. I'm hoping they buff some other tanks in the true update but overall it is not bad and certainly not a catastrophe like some of the previous ones. Too bad on the lack of arty/183 changes but that'll probably never happen

The type 61's accuracy buff was for the 90mm. Not the 105mm.

Yeah but the 90mm was competitive as is due to the massive DPM. With the accuracy buff, it'll probably be the primary option. I certainly will be trying it out

:-( yeah i realized only after posting, same for the 121 - its both their final packages that could do with becoming more useable.

 

who really cares about the lower ones  . . . . .

There was only 38 vechicals listed. I’m really hoping that there is more than that.

Me too... there are so many tanks that desperately needs a buff: Maus, Type 5 Heavy, WZ-113G FT, AMX 50 Foch 155, TVP VTU, Type 59, T-34-3, IS-6, KV-5... and especially the worst of all, Object 268 v 4.

And that's my motto since i started here. However people still believe that buffs and nerfs everywhere gives balance when it's obvious that just provides the opposite.

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