The only tank that should get a ROF nerf is T54 and not the T29

That'd be whatever you spout from your mouth/keyboard.

Or just a mobility nerf. It should not be flying around the battlefield with its 1960s engine carrying that sort of frontal armour.

So it seems the nerf the T29/T32 are getting is the 105mm goes from 360 damage down to 320? Add to this the German 105mm is more accurate and has higher pen, and I hear KT is having the front turret armor fixed or buffed? I see no reason to play a T32 over a KT or (buffed) IS 3 unless you are married to a few hull down spots on a few maps.

Please let me know if I'm wrong here, I'd like to play the USA tree but its getting harder to justify it, about to give up and just go for the IS 4/7 after wipe.

T29 is getting a ROF boost back up to 6 rpm, so its damage per minute is actually increasing.

I'd rather take the extra 40 alpha over the extra 120 DPM, If I really wanted DPM, I'd use the 90mm with its extra 240 DPM over the 0.6.4 T29, and 360 DPM over the current one.

Further, it just seems like a bad short 105mm after this change, and well, on the T32, a bad version of the not top gun of its equal tier counterpart...?

I believe that only the VK4502P 105mm gets the buff..I'm not sure about KT. And the frontal turret armor of the KT is still easy to penetrate with or without the gun mantle bug. Anyway Russian tanks is the easy mode in this game.

The Americans and Germans are just not allowed to dominate any tier are they...
And I was thinking the T29 was my reason for preordering the game.
**They, guaranteed, lost a preorder here. I was set to, but if this gets nerfed... goodbye money...

The T29/T32 were just too good. It will still be good but not so much superior.
As for KT it will have less Rof so it is pretty much balanced.

As for T54 it is allready geting owned by pershing. And panterII is going to level 8  :Smile_honoring:

Balance in this game is a joke... Alpa strike damage is so vastly superior to ROF in the majority of situations... With Idiots like overlord who have proven time and time again that they wouldnt know balance if it hit them in the face making this game it wont last.

American heavies will continue to be nerfed... but hey, Overlord says the T 54 and IS 4 are fine but T 29s and 32s are OP... hell he considers the T 34 to be equal with its peers.

World of Russian tanks, yay

Well no1 will know the diff between tanks anyway. Can you imagine all the T54 s in game after the wipe when people have grinded to them again...lol.. I have allready heard tons saying they are going for the T54 after wipe. Awful funny how sooo many people want to strive to get a tank that according to Overlord "performs worse then its counterparts".... <_<

Pershing is superior to the t54 in a 1vs1

Yeah sure, a dumb T54 will always be pwnd by a skilled pershing. A dumb Is4 will be pwnd by a skilled T34.

I'll throw in my gripe here.  It ticked me off when they decided to up the repair cost of my T-23 by 30% to "even out the playing field".  Considering the best cannon for it still doesn't do crap to the heavy tanks I see it as an unjust change.

People still tend to say stupid stuff about tanks they never used before, well if you say the t34 is on par with the IS4 then you are retarded, i have tested both decently to being close to getting the t30 and having an Is7. The is4 is a vastly superior tank that for me was a really nice money and xp maker once fully upgraded and has a lot better gun the bl9 to use right away over the t34s 105mm that can't pen t9s very reliably. And yes i'm very good at aiming with 70-80% hit ratio for my hvy tanks i use.

First time trying US heavies, T-29's performance has been stellar, but its hull armour is definitely vulnerable. Sure wish I could penetrate M6 premium tank's frontal armour.

I am rather disapointed in the T29 now, after playing one in beta. took a 2 month break due to boredom, but the ROF change on the t29 really makes it an average or below average tank imo. decreasing the damage on the 105 is a bad move, this game already suffers from to many vehicles in the american lines who suffer due to current game mechanics. 6 rpm would probably be good, given that the IS is at 5.56 with 390 damage on its final weapon in the tier.

I am pushing through the t29 atm, to the t32 which might be a bit better now, given its higher rof. Sadly, i just do not see the T29 as a keeper anymore, its going to struggle against higher tier tanks with its ROF issues on the 105.
