It,s been normal for them to give compensation to premium account holders ever since the days of BETA everytime they release a major patch nodoubt they will do the same for this patch

Yay! Swedish tanks that are broken... :(

 

I don't think I've ever been this excited and let down for a release yet... I really wanted to grind out one of the new Tier 10's and even converted Free XP and trained up my crew in prep during the sales, until I played them post-nerf/drop of overmatch on the Test server for the last 2 weeks. Buffing the AMX 50B's gun depression kinda put the last nail in the Kranvagn's coffin, as it's practically better in every way with the exception of strong turret armor.

Yay for:

- broken new tanks that totally outclass older ones

- MM still not fixed

- Arty still oneshotting tanks doing 50+ kmph

- Totally not pay-to-win premium tanks

- "people" whose IQ starts with decimal still part of game

- bots still part of every game

​Yes. They always give players extra premium account time when there are delays and/or downtime...

Since the overmatch mechanics have been dropped the Swedish tank line seems a bit worthless now. Just my opinion.  I was going to try them out on the test server but seeing the change
I figured what's the point.

Yeah now all they have going for them is -12 degrees of gun depression and 200+mm of turret armor. How will they ever cope.

Let's see if this patch will have the included Battle Assistant (then I will say "bye bye" to Quickybaby's XVM, as I couldn't install solely the BA).

Looking more at the td's myself.  The other line isn't so bad.

​I wish they would include it also but will they ever allow one to have a full brothers in trouble minion crew? :P

Why don't you just go ahead and copy paste this into a few hundred threads right away and save doing it piecemeal over the next 10 years while the game "dies" ??

With the worst DPM of any Tier 10 autoloader (down in IS-7 range), nerfed mobility, paper hull which was further nerfed in thickness, a weakness to anything HE killing the crew or devastating modules, the longest intra-clip reload of the tier 10 Autoloaders, and the longest clip reload of them. 

 

So basically all they have going for them is -12 degrees of gun depression and 200+mm of turret armor. And also, they buffed the 50B to -10 degrees gun depression, because reasons...

 

Oh, and the Strv 103B is intrinsically broken on release because any Russian 122mm gun (one of the most common, in the game!) will overmatch a Tier 10 TD's best armor despite being sloped at auto-bounce. 

 

*slow clap* But yeah, they're OP doncha know, eh?
