Well the title says it all...have any of you noticed any diff?  I have access to test server but rarely if ever use it....so I am just curious given the "rumor" in another post that the SP is being removed from the stores, soon....

The changes aren't official. IIRC WGing said it was implemented in by mistake and it's not going onto live. As for it being removed, they don't have plans for that as they said "current owners and future owners."

The changes were actually canceled. It's a good thing; the tank lost something close to 30% of its armor protection on the hull. A few people did small tests in training rooms and found the Super Pershing's armor noticeably weaker than in 8.5, but the test server itself isn't a good place to try it; everyone's slinging gold and the real concern was that AP shots that would be iffy in 8.5 would go straight through in 8.6.

No, the Super Pershing isn't getting adjusted in 8.6

I am not asking about whether it is being removed or not, I am asking about the ammo, accuracy and armor changes so to speak...

they say something about hull armor value. Well I mean the angle.

Ignoring the (now scrapped) 8.6 armor changes:

The Spershing is getting its armor buffed via normalization + heat changes.

It's cupola is now easier to hit because of the accuracy changes.

It now can snipe more effectively, like any tank can.

Overall, net buff. The armor is quite a bit better, and scrubby players are still going to ignore your cupola.

Exactly. One of the reasons they 'were' going to nerf it was because it sees a nice buff in 8.6.. But with the outrage they are leaving it alone, and simply removing it from being sold. Which net effect means - if you own the SP it will be buffed.

My fear is that the changes to the arty MM will be a nightmare for the SP.  It will now face arty with higher alpha and the lack of mobility will be like a big target on its head.

Another test server might be up tomorrow, you may get some sort of an answer. Not saying it won't get changed again after that but yeah...

Arty is getting an MM buff and their maximum accuracy is effectively staying the same (an arty-specific nerf on top of a general buff) but their effective accuracy is being nerfed via increased shell flight time and (I believe) aim time nerfs.
