We've just had a major balance update so not much to do at the moment as we see the impact the changes have. We have a few we are keeping out eyes on though. :great:

Let me help a major rebalance is arty losing skyview. A minor rebalance is buffing stock guns, stock accuracy, and other extraneous polarizations.

As you open the treasure chest, you discover what appears to be a spreadsheet. Do you open it?

 

Yes

 

Congratulations! You have discovered a Cursed Spreadsheet of Balance!  It rewards you with a +/-1 match making bonus, but infers a -8 penalty to balance.

Nerf artillery.  Nothing else is nearly as annoying in this game.  I can live with  the Super Mario light tanks circling my heavy tank at warp speed, at least

I can see them.

Artillery is needing a HP buff and aim time buff to cope with new faster tanks.

Chinese T-34-2 is great with the 100mm since the last patch. https://console.worldoftanks.com/en/news/update-4-11-patch-notes. It's a competitive Tier VIII medium to say the least. 

 

It's a shame they had to nerf the crap out of the tier seven before they even considered fixing the tier 8.

They do a whole game balance pass about once every 18 months.  The last one was in August 2018.  Before that it was late Jan 2017 (I remember becuase it was around my birthday).  They do smaller balance changes every couple months as they see a need, which is different than what many forumers would see. 

 

It's like if WG was a Walmart and instead of checking on their lanes every day they had corporate assign a year and month to each lane and each assignment was a a year and a half appart. Corporate who's never seen the inside of the building see this as a massive improvement and time saver. For the customers who actually have to walk in said lanes the building is functionally on fire and a horrible useless mess.

 

One perspective is the correct one regardless of how they try to spin it.


MOEs so I can pretend like they matter

I'm still hoping for a buff to the Type 59 and the rework to the Kranvagn. We follow most of what PC does, and for good reason because their rebalances are for the most part well received, plenty of negatives but we have more than enough stuff that needs to be balanced anyway. Especially at tier 10. 

 

Very true. Tier X is the most unbalanced tier at the moment.

I would certainly like to see a few nerfs happening here and there- for one thing, that ruddy Hellcat 105 is overpowered as hell. At least bump it up to tier VII and give it PMM, if you must- I'm sick to my back teeth of being one-shotted by the bloody things, especially when they are hiding on the other side of the map. Yes, I know, I should have played the summer ops to earn one, blah blah blah, but some people have stuff to do offline, you know? I've had to grapple with the realisation that I may have had a stroke when I had my heart attack and I'm being checked up for that right now, but the long story is that I've had to take early retirement, so no extra income for no premium time, and no further tank purchases. TL : DR; stop with this flipping premium tank arms race, where each new premium totally outstrips every one that's gone before, just to generate income!

Balance changes need to be more frequent than once a year.

 

Small incremental changes each update would also be preferred to hitting something with a massive change midway through a year.

Artillery should get an aim time buff and HP buff but lose sky view completely. Make them all direct fire derp gun armed TDs as they should be in this game.

Drop the reload in the heshstar to 4 secs, made it go as fast as 70kph n turn friendly fire so i can remove my teammates that are trash n dont help the team.   instead of yall complaining about arty maybe get your butts off the cap n help.  Im seeing far to many heavies n tds doing the spotting cause u know why?  The mediums n lights arent doing there jobs of spotting.  They sit behind the heavies being cowards

It’s a shame we still can’t mix platoon tiers 9 and 10 , I’ve got nearly all my tens unlocked but many of my clan mates haven’t so it’s forcing me to use now redundant tier 9 tanks to play with them when I’d rather use my 10s and I know it was to help stop fail platoons but surely 9s and 10s would be ok

I feel the E50 needs another aim time nerf. And the STB-1 needs its .36 accuracy reajusted to .42 so the stats feel more in line with how the gun handles. The FV4005 need its turret armor nerfed. I sould never be able to bounce any shots aimed at my turret. The machine need its side armor buffed to around 100mm to help out the early rushers. The IS7 needs to have 10° of gun depression to highlight its ridge fighting abilities. Bat chat needs its HE changed to HESH. The Slap Jack needs its ROF decreased by one second and its pen reduced to 132mm. Absolution needs to lose some of the spaced armor just so we can removed the hideous commanders cupola.

You guys let me know if I missed anything

“Greatness is a transitory experience. It is never consistent. It depends in part upon the myth-making imagination of humankind. The person who experiences greatness must have a feeling for the myth he is in. He must reflect what is projected upon him. And he must have a strong sense of the sardonic. This is what uncouples him from belief in his own pretensions. The sardonic is all that permits him to move within himself. Without this quality, even occasional greatness will destroy a man.”

you do relise that a real arty bombardment like the ones your referring to either were pre established targets or took 3 or 4 bombardments to get on target with the use of a forward observer. Not an aerial view where a single arty gun can land within a few meters of a tank after making large adjustments.

What, you mean where entire batteries of artillery fired at a preset grid coordinate at soft targets generally in the open? Or were there armored vehicles being shot with single tubes of artillery in a deleted scene?
