These are 2 tech tree tanks that perform the same basic role yet the diamondback clearly outperforms them. Can some explain why?

personally i think the three are bad, but not having a cuppola gives Diamondback a big advantage against AT-15, and i believe they shouldn't be compared with chinese TD

Well, you better enjoy it now, before it gets the spreadsheet treatment.

 

Also, plan your trips in this tank wisely and ahead of time

Up a tier and down a tier, all at the same time.

If it was a last man standing battle, a one on one battle, diamondback would beat both of the other tanks hands down

The Chinese TD is used to spam HEAT so it's a bit special. Also it's not any different for the Yatzi, it's also just better than the tech tree tank.

 

It's not pay to win tho, because you merely pay and then win so it's totally different.

You shouldn’t have to spam premium rounds to make tanks be equal to same tier vehicles

You don't do it because you have to with the WZ. You do it because 340 pen HEAT is legitimately broken in tier ten it's game breaking in tier 8.

Not sure if it outperforms Chinese td... WZ 111-1G FT has fantastic penetration and huge alpha compared to Diamondback. I actually like WZ 111-1G FT more than it's closest rival, ISU-152. Not sure why people think it's garbage... it's not that bad.

The wz is good especially since it can relocate unlike the diamond back. The armor is quite troll and the gun has 340 heat pen which is just broken at tier 8. 560 alpha as well with a acceptable reload. Sound to me like you just haven’t figured out how to play it yet.

The AT hatch ruins the tank.

All are similarly competitive.

The difference is the premium silver boost that lets you spam premium shells.

This is why most tanks are easy to pen.

Armor is dead, Long live the premium shell!

They have before. Specifically with the pref tanks. Ironic considering they added the sta-2.

 

Also the reason you don't want them to be better is power creep and pay to win. Both rapid methods to killing a game.
