Hey all,

So is it just me or is the 4 degree "nerf" seem to be more like 24 degrees....  

Since the new patch I can barely aim down at all... Practically makes the US Heavy's worthless as well the hull armor is terrible to begin with...




Anyone else notice this change to be much more drastic than what one would think 4 Degrees should be?

most of my fav hull down spots are not usable now, or anywhere how they used to be.

Yea...  It really makes the tanks unusable....   Maybe it will be different when they switch it out for the new tank...  But as it stands right now, the T34 grind just got a million times worse.


Already the T34 was a downgrade from the T32... Which I could deal with... But this made it so much worse.

Also the gun is the worst t8 gun out there. It has less damage and penetration than KT's or IS-3's cannons. It also feel less accurate now...

40% nerf...

I wonder wtf the devs were smoking... while it makes t32 weaker it is still playable but t34 is now impossible... I just owned a t34 driver on a *slight* slope in my t29 since he couldnt aim his 120mm in any way at me...

its very very bad ... you can't aim now unless you are on totally flat land, if it is in fact 4% that it made a huge difference.

well can't say i'm surprised, I was telling my clan mates about this gun depression nerf and they said it wouldn't be much, but when your tank relies heavily on being hull down a nerf to gun depression is a pretty big nerf

What is really weird though is that the T1 Heavy and the M6 got their gun depression values decreased also and the last time I checked those were rather far, far, far from being OP.

I hope they realize how big of a mistake this is and fix it fast because the raging will only get worse and possible paying players might start quitting.

Don't quote me but I thought i saw a post by overlord saying they may do a hotfix and roll back the gun depression nerf.

That might be and idea to push people to buy new premiums ... I'm struggling here in t34 to shot anything and clan buddy taunts me with battles in Lowe where he comes out with 100k cash

Yeah my T34 is now unplayable. It was bad enough when I could only take 2 or 3 hits now I can't even use terrain advantages.

They'll likely only rollback the nerf on the T1 Heavy and M6A1.

The sad thing is, gun depression is what made US Heavies. It's what allowed for their survivability, it's what allowed them to have armor.

if they don't do the same to the T32 and T34 I might as well move on to another tree.
