It’s blatantly broken. My tank, the Maus, which was sidescraping, was just being penned over and over again via the hull, but I couldn’t do anything back. The tank has 0 frontal weak points! And it was given away to nearly every player! I don’t think they should’ve added it until they figured out how to make it balanced. It was nerfed, but it didn’t do anything. The only real way to beat one is to rely on player’s errors, since everything else can’t pen it for frontally. This is my opinion, and I think the game would be better without an annoying HEAT spamming super armored tank ruining the game I’ve played since I was 9.

I'm not sure about removing it.  I got mine from playing the year of ops, but I have not played it yet.  However, I have been reading in the forum and seen it on game play, that it appears to be somewhat easy to kill.  It has weak side armor and gets ammo racked a lot.  I  think we need more time to see the stats and figure out if it's OP..  From the ones I have seen in game, I am not impressed with it..  IMHO..

When you see one in front of you, just point to the 4 lines under its  turret on its right. The turret falls to the ground alone

Yea this tank is not going any where, just follow the advise of shooting it in the weak ammo location.

I played my first (and only so far) game in it today. It's lol easy mode. 

 

I wouldn't remove it, but almost every tech tree tank in the game now needs buffing to compensate for the ever more powerful premiums WG seem intent on releasing. It's effects pretty much every tier. It seems obvious that the only things that sell well must be the ever more powerful premium tanks. The game is quite simply pay to win now. Alas, the geniuses that run this game seem to have mislaid the fact that they need both free to play and wallet warriors (and everyone else in between) to maintain a successful game. When the F2P crowd realize that without the mega premiums they are severely at a disadvantage, they'll dump the game quick. The 30% drop in 2019 seems to indicate the penny dropping... 

 

Shame. I honestly think the game could last for years and year more. But, it needs managing. Churning our re-skins isn't management, it's vandalism.

1) You weren't sidescraping if you got penned in the hull

2) Your (the Maus's) premium ammo can go right through his (279e's) frontal armor.

 

People are making it a whole honor thing or something to use premium or not. You wanna win or have better stats? Use premium. Wanna -try- earn silver at Tier X, like only in silver boost events but whatever, gimp yourself and use regular rounds.

The "shoulders" area of the ufp are an easy pen and very weak side armor, I see no problem here.

I got some nice fan mail from a waffle driver complaining that it is OP because he tried to yolo and clip and couldn't.  Lol.


 

To answer your question, no.  It is not OP.  It is just new.  The super pershing was similar but after everyone figured out where to shoot it, it wasn't so bad.

1: I have yet to ammo rack it.

2: I wouldn’t call it cry baby. It’s stating facts.

3: Don’t respond, if you are just gonna insult someone for saying something.

but what you said is mostly wrong. 

 

it doesnt have a gun that relys on Heat. it doesnt have impenetrable armor that cant be defeated.

Already managed to one-shot it three times due to ammo rack hits. Feels like of all tanks it‘s the easiest to kill that way. I wonder if Wet Ammo Rack and Safe Storage can prevent it from blowing up so easily.

We don't need to removed it just needs to be nerfed every tank in the game has a weak point it doesn't. put a weak point on it and the side armor doesn't count as a week point. Put a weak point on the front of the tank

It does have weak points. And more nerfs will render it useless.
