here's a typical game


made great bank on it though.

Hate the AMX 13 90. 3 shells into the side of it with my AT7 bounced. Then I was shot in teh back a few times and nothing I could do about it

Don't worry, they know the AMX 13 90 is underperforming so they're going to buff it, and then buff all lights. So really it's getting buffed twice.

Jon and I were dying of laughter last night, thinking about them buffing the 13 90 as we racked up 2&3k damage rounds in our 13 90s. It brought tears to the eyes.

I am thinking it is going to be changing a great deal...it is going to have to. I think that the older players are getting tired of it and some of the things that are just wrong with it.

It has so much going for it however....I really hope they get it sorted.

Hello. My name is Theaty and I'm in love with another Russian tank.



First, it was Smithy seducing me with that Churchill Three. Her sweet tracks blocking all damage to her body and that fast firing gun making enemies pay repeatedly. And then, oh my, and then a friend bought me a KV-5 -- surprised me with it. And that dear big bear of a tank sure is a sweetie. Here are 3 KV-5s, after rolling the banana, quick-capping the red team in 3:06 of gametime:



And here, with guardian angel Morgue watching over my shoulder, my KV-5 takes flight:



I, of course, missed the trembling medium at the bottom of the hill, but this tank is near perfect. My approach scared it enough that it ran into the rest of the team and died in 15 seconds. Then our AMX 13 F3 had a carry the game moment and saved all of our butts by derping the charging 30 01 in the face, allowing that ISU-152 and I to kill the rest of the enemy except the FV304, who finished off our arty. But I capped out for the win.

I enjoy taking it to stupid places -- like the air -- and watching the enemy team melt before I even fire.

I enjoy hiding my R2D2 and confusing the enemy that now can't pen me.

I enjoy ramming things. A lot.

I enjoy its gun depression and speed -- it can be used effectively like an American Heavy.

I enjoy giggling endlessly while driving this tank to a 60% win rate.

So I'll raise my lunchtime Brandy glass to my KV-5 and the gifter of said tank. May your R2D2 always be hidden. May the Big Russian Bear Premium Cheater Tank always bring you joy. And may your armor never rust.

I am beginning to believe that the KV-5 is the original backwards tank. Backwards KV-5 need not worry about little robot, backwards kv-5 need not engine, backwards kv-5 just need target.

I'm grinding my T34 for silver to get me a Jag Pz E100, and last night was golden - lots of 100K+ hauls, even in defeat!

Can't wait to get to 6M and buy me a Big Boom.

The worst tier 10 Russian medium is still "meh"; notably not utter crap. Dear WGA Please give us some good US/British/Chinese mediums at tier 10.


9.1 tank specific nerfs are postponed:

Hello everyone,

Storm posts further details about the CANCELLATION of some changes, planned for Patch 9.1. He states that the developers came to following conclusions:

Storm states that the list of changes is not always systematic and understandeable for the players – it’s not clear why tank X gets buffed and tank Y doesn’t. Developers agreed that rebalance tasks will be handled more systematically and the developers will post explanations as to why tank X was buffed or nerfed

Furthermore, developers decided that in order to fulfill this systematic approach (combining tank buffs/nerfs and for example the TD camo nerf), the planned buffs/nerfs for vehicles are CANCELLED. The only changes that REMAIN in 9.1 are the following (be aware that the EU forums have it wrong, these changes are staying):

- TD camo factor after shooting is nerfed
- LT battletier spread reduction
- MT-25 and VK2801 buff
- Sherman stock turret 105mm derp ROF nerf (this is a leftover form the previous patch, since it wasn’t nerfed by ommission)
- Soviet UBR-354KA 76mm shell damage increased by 5 (also bug fix, gold ammo had 110 damage and AP had 105)

Storm states that this DOES mean the developers decided to remove the Hellcat and Tiger nerf. The rebalances will be made to them, but as a part of complex tasks (in this case, the task of “solving the rebalance of tanks on mid tiers”). Storm adds that the developers will also give out more complex and sophisticated explanations as to why each change has to be made.
