Wehraboos will call it screwed up because the Tiger I has to use the short 88

Good; one can derive no greater sustenance or satisfaction than the sweet salty flow from the eyes of distraught wehraboos.

Quote from OP

~~•Lake Balaton offensive. Map: Erlenberg

Vehicles:           USSR – IS, T-34, T-34-85, ISU-152, SU-100, SU-76

                          Germany – Stug III, Tiger II, Panther, Pz IV, Jagdtiger, Jagdpanther

 
•Battle of Kursk. Map: Prokhorovka

Vehicles:           USSR – SU-152, KV-1S, SU-85, T-34, T-70, SU-76,

                          Germany – Ferdinand, Pz IV, Panther, Tiger I, StuG III, Pz II, Pz III

 
•Ardennes Offensive. Map: Erlenberg

Vehicles:           USA - M10 Wolverine, M18 Hellcat, M36 Jackson, M4A3E8 Sherman, M4A3E2 Sherman Jumbo

                          Germany – Jagdpanther, Pz IV, Panther, Tiger I, StuG III, Tiger II

 

So let's get this straight... vehicles by Tier:

 

~~Lake Balaton offensive:

USSR: T8 TD, T7 HT, T6 TD, T6 MT, T5 MT, T4 TD

Germany : T9 TD, T8 HT, T7 TD, T7 MT, T6 TD, T5 MT

 

Pretty much +1 tier for all German vehicles.

 

~~Battle of Kursk

USSR: T7 TD, T6 HT, T5 TD, T5 MT, T4 TD, T3 LT

Germany: T8 TD, T7 HT, T7 MT, T5 TD, T5 MT, T4 MT, T2 LT

 

Same, +1 tier for German top tiers.

 

~~Ardennes Offensive

USA: T6 MT, T6 MT, T6 TD, T6 TD, T5 TD

Germany: T8 HT, T7 TD, T7 HT, T5 TD, T5 MT

 

Um so +2 tiers (8 vs 6)... yeah that'll be fair.  The long 8.8 is the WORST gun on the Tiger II... good bye USA.

Re: ^^^

 

I can only hope that the "teams will be balanced by points, not by tiers" means that Germany is fighting short handed... as in 10 v 15 battles.

It's been long confirmed uneven teams in terms of numbers for the sake of balance are a feature of this mode

What is up with the tank names in Russia? Apparently, the Pzkpfw. 3/4 is a Hetzer.

It's all placeholder content, it's just showing the format of what is what in the UI

After I get my FV4202, I'm gonna have to get my Panzer 4, Tiger 1, Tiger ll, American TD's and beloved M4A3E8 HVSS "Easy 8" Sherman . I will finally have a reason to keep them in my garage. I enjoyed the Tiger 1, but it sort of pained me to use the L/71 on it, as it does with other tanks, like 105's on the Tiger II. However, when facing tier 9's, the L/71 was much appreciated. I'm sure the L/56 will prove itself a good gun in historical battles. I'm just revealing in the fact that I won't see as many derp Panzer 4's, Shermans and M10's in this new mode, hopefully.

As it was discussed on Russian forum, the teams overall will be balanced. Sure, you may end up in a King Tiger against a bunch of Easy 8s, the problem is that the rest of your team will be Pz III and PZ IVs The teams overall will be balanced. So, if you got a Tier 7 on top of one team, the other team has nothing but tiers 5 and 6, than the rest of folks on your team will be tier 4. Overall teams WILL be balanced.
