In my opinion this tank deserves a buff, why? Very simple. I see this tank once in about 100 battles. The reason why this tank is so rare is the speed, 26km/h forward and 8km/h backward is killing, literally killing this tank. The gun is ok, the armor is ok but speed is bad. I am not saying that it should be speed from a PC (50km/h -18km/h), but at least give 35km/h maybe 40km/h and some -15km/h. If you tell me that this is not the reason why this tank is so rare you will probably make fun of me. I know quite a lot about this game, i know what's happening on the PC etc. I also have quite a lot of experience, which can be seen from the results. You haven't literally changed anything in the last patch, Im not counting any visual corrections etc. I mean tanks, none got any improvement, even the unfortunate Object 268 Version 4.
I hope you read this topic, answer quite sensibly and in the next patch you will look more at tank buffs, and not just a tank models that have been destroyed.
Thank you for listening.

I'm in general agreement, especially in regards to the intermediate buff instead of copying PC.

 

I took this tank out the other day. I got circled by the VK 100.01 (P). A tank well known for its incredible agility and speed.


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

Agreed. 35 kph should be fine with a 12 Reverse. Would make it different than the T110E3 and the Object 263 keeps it's mobility advantage.

Don't give it the pc stats. That's what got it nerfed in the first place.

35-40 forward would be acceptable. Makes it faster than a T110E3 but slower than the 263.

I think twice before taking my 268-4 out and regret putting a good crew in it. A waste, as they are not used except in trainers...  I have asked for the same speed buff before and was told that the tank’s stats are where they should be and that a speed buff will make it OP. Someone out there is doing real good in it. Absolutely needs the speed buff.

It got overly nerfed on console based on the original PC stats. It got nerfed on PC but it's still good unlike our version.

I'm unsure why the hate for PC balance, it got nerfed from its broken status on there and kept it's identity.

Over here ours got nerfed into a crappy E3.

 

Don't we have better E3s, E4s and Deathstars than they were originally on PC, yet we have tanks like the Grille 15 and the 268 V4 nerfed to crap.


I don't play anymore, just loiter around the forum from time to time.

I'm sure the spreadsheet says it's fine. Especially with 5 people using it and none of them being red wn8 pubbies.

 

Personally I think there's at least 10 other tier tens that need buffs who have been sitting in line longer than the V4 has even been on console and adding to that that it's a TD I hope it stays bad forever just as a monument to CBs absolutely toilet tier balance.


MOEs so I can pretend like they matter

I think it would have been better if they kept the PC stats, but nerfed the lower plate (300mm) down to 230mm.

It also has the worse win rate of all tier 10 TDs if I recall. Might seem obvious it needs a buff based on that, but it might be too complicated for WG.
