"Implemented separation of new and experienced players in battles (for tier I-III vehicles)"

More information please

 

And why on earth would you nerf anything on the FV4202?

Basically this is Wargaming saying: "Hey everyone, we want you all to play heavy tanks."

 

I haven't been playing much lately so this is yet another reason to move on.

Not another update -  the constant updating of the game and nerfing of existing vehicles is getting ridiculous

Doesn't seem like to big a nerf, especially for mediums.  10 pen difference?   How often will that play into a game?    And for those occasions, who doesn't carry a few gold rounds anyway?

Explain, please, the objective of the pen nerfs? The one that set me off is the 263... 270 pen?

 

Pardon my narrow mindedness, but when do 15% dispersion buffs and .2 second reload decreases justify 20+ loss in pen?

 

Td's have always had a huge gap in penetration over other tanks, why give them the same pen as the e50m has right now? (give or take)

 

Not sure i agree with where this game is going in terms of " if they wont play heavy tanks, just force them to by making armor the #1 statistic a tank can have by" seems tunnel visioned and borderline asenine...

 

call me crazy but nobody asked for this, while arty is still complained about, as well as a host of other things...

Oh good, now there will be even more gold flying around. Good luck people who can't afford to sling gold, you will always be handicapped compared to those who can.

Are you [edited]kidding me, a Leo 1 pen nerf? 

 

EDIT: Nerfing the [edited]pen on every tank like the T110E4 and the FV, well I guess this game is trying to kill itself off.

Not sure what to make of a nerf to the 183mm gun.

It's not just a pen nerf, they're nerfing accuracy while on the move. So I guess they want medium tank players to play like E-100s.

 

EDIT: Wait, they say dispersion is being "decreased." Is that a nerf or a buff?

To be fair, according to noobmeter, 8 out of 10 (not counting the m60) tier 10 mediums have a higher win rate than the highest win rate tier 10 heavy which is the T57 (not counting the VK 72).

 

edit: Forgot to add, these nerfs really won't help though, more players will just fire gold anyway which only really ends up hurting the players that can't.

 

Though i'm really surprised they nerfed the Jagd E-100, never really been close to the top.

What a joke not nerfing the gold round pen for these tanks as well.

Arty's getting another (relatively minor) nerf this patch. It's almost pure RNG to play arty in a pubbie already so not much difference there.

 

The 263 is a pretty strong TD and only gets stronger as arty gets weaker, but 20 pen is a huge nerf.

 

And the Foch 155? Hasn't that already been pretty much nerfed to death? I guess the fact that a few people still play it means it hasn't been nerfed enough yet.

 

With the medium pen nerf... my question would be, what problem is this trying to solve?

The thing I'm amused about is that this is just the public test pre-notes. Things can change, especially with test #2 and later on in the test if they decide to.

 

I'll check the patch notes on the last iteration of the test >.>

So...instead of nerfing gold rounds..like you [edited]should have...you nerf the standard ammo? Why the hell? Really though, explain to me the logic behind that decision, because i do not see it anywhere.
