Good update.

 

+1 for implementing any form of nerf to the Pz V/IV (even though I have one).  They are just too damaging to the game play in their current form.  I am sure they will be out in platoons this weekend (with +1/-1) terrorising tier 5 (and 6) games.

Same, a friend of mine suggested the PMM idea as then doesn't have to meet Tier 8 but also doesn't meet Tier 4s which is better for new players and they can still bully Tier 5 Tanks. I don't like the V/IV personally and hoping if they do nerf it that they offer a refund, not because i'll be unhappy about the nerf like others but more that i suck in the tank and feel bad playing it. Maybe a small hull traverse buff as compensation for being higher tier?

I like that you are finally getting round to nerfing the Pz V/IV. Not sure I agree with moving it up a tier, unless you buff the penetration. Have you considered nerfing the hitpoints similarly to what PC did, which would allow people to actually be able to kill it in good time and stop people yoloing in it. Either that or you could also nerf the mobility as well, because the armour it has is too good for that level of mobility. There are options rather than just uptiering a tank, which hasn't worked in the past. Just oook at the MTLS 1G14, this tank is ruined since you uptiered it simply because you were too lazy to buff its statistics to make it a proper tier IV.

Fair Point. The HP currently is comparable to a Tier 6 Heavy Tank

I would be fine with a V/IV nerf/up-tier.  I have it but don't play it much.  Platoons of those things can really ruin games.

The recap here is the opposite of what Paingod said in the stream.  He stated they probably will not change the PZ V/IV. He even read off the stream players posting to keep it. He followed up with so many players owning one and that it's a premium.  The idea of changing it was slim.  I took it like Artillery.  We talk about it,  but not change it.

This is a problem if the recap has contradictory information from the actual stream ... :facepalm:

 

Typical WG, not doing themselves any favors ...

T-55A - Post War Eastern

 

 It really needs a buff.  I know it was buffed already but it wasn't enough.  It still has the lowest win rate in Era 1 on WOTStars:

48.18%

 

The data available suggests:

  • This tank is very weak and generally performs far worse than average.
  • This tank seems to have a slightly low skill ceiling; better players may struggle to influence performance as much as usual. Performance fluctuates (possibly low battle count data).

If the Pz V/IV.
Ends up in a Nerf, without improving the chassis turn or penetration,
(since currently it does not stop seeing Tier 7 [70-80%], and you really have to spend a lot of silver to face those levels at Although I do not read anyone write about it, and it is a tank that has to spend a lot of Silver to face those levels)
Will they be like an armadillo and will they refund the gold?

Would the 5/4 still see Tier 5? As T5 see up to 7? Or would it only see T6 and 7?

 

It's only my complete lack of talent that stops me from being an average player.

Most tier 5 games I've played recently regularly have 3 pz v/1v per team. So even if your correct and it only gets top tier 30% of the time there's still too many in the queue at anyone time.

 

Bumping it up to tier 6 and giving it pref is pretty generous. The only other tier 6 prefs are the bulldog and the tog. My guess is that the 5/4 would outperform both tanks in winrate. Perhaps after a few months of data they could make some adjustments but they would probably be minor
