Modest enough patch, premium upgrades are nice ... might actually play the SP one in a while now.  Didn't notice the Swedish tanks had so low an RoF though, should make for some short lived tank rushes lol.

What it does for me is make the AMX 50 120 easier to grind through to get my 50b.  The new depression elevation angles should really help the tank out, because it was awful before.

Woot! P88 finally gets unnerfed! -8 depression frontally! Woot! I don't even care about the engine and traverse buff.

 

Panther mit 8,8 cm L/71:

  • Increased traverse speed of the Panther mit 8,8cm Kw.K. 43 L/71 from 38 to 40
  • Increased engine power of the Maybach HL 230 P30 engine from 600 h.p. to 700 h.p.
  • Changed the depression angle of the 8,8cm Kw.K. 43 L/71 gun from -5 to -8 degrees

I only have the IS-6.  I'm cross because they buffed most of the other tier 8 premiums but not the one I have.

The IS-6 has even less incentive to be played.

Greedy much? It was mega buffed a few patches ago and if they ever implement the new overmatch mechanics it will be a pure troll mobile.

I have my Pershing crew cycle through the Ram II, Ripper Patton, and Super Pershing, so even though I only JUST got the Pershing, without using any free exp or gold the crew is at 55-60% of the 1st skill (not bad for x2 days only).

You really don't know how to right-click on a ship in the tech-tree and select modules to view all the information on the modules you could ever want? Are you really that anti-WG that you can't even be truthful? 

 

Are you really so anti-me you don't understand the simple observation that apparently pretty much everybody else understood?

 

Well, since you're obviously slow on the uptake, I'll spell it out for you so you too can join the ranks of the enlightened: The OP is talking about information on the simple viewing of the tech tree that isn't readily available. I'm talking about that very same thing in World of Warships. Here' s  a screen shot for you to spell it out in clarity just for you:

 

 

Now, why would you hide that? What's the big deal with just showing how many slots it has for upgrades and what upgrades are available while you're browsing?

 

Same thing in World of Tanks the other poster is talking about: it's like suddenly some very basic information is being treated like it's top secret for some odd reason.

 

Hope that clears it up for you.

It's not greed.  It's disappointment.  The armor on other tier 8 premium tanks was buffed.  The guns on other tier 8 premium tanks were buffed.  The IS-6 only has armor.  So when the others get their armor buffed it decreases the incentive to play the IS-6.  Now the only tank with worse penetration at tier 8 is the KV-5, which can still load premium and have better penetration.

Love for two premium tanks that are far far too mediocre for the price is always a good thing.   I will now for sure play my T34 and Lowe today prolly more than I have in the last 3 years to see if WG did anything but any benefit to movement and damage is always good.

Apart from giving you access to the Swedish lines, of course. Here's my take on it:

 

 

tl;dw: actually, not much is really changing. WG seems to have been playing it pretty safe with this round of balance adjustments. Some are welcome changes, others are clearly not enough. At least nothing has been nerfed.

 

Panther 88 feels more viable.  I don't need to dance all around the map just to get a shot on an enemy target.  Other than that, nothing at all.

St Emil loses the two tracks on front - so even less armor LoL.

So you want it to have pref mm along with a troll armour profile and also a gud gun? Greedy much?

All 9.17 did for me is give me a free garage slot and a space for one Swedish Tank.

I have no interest in post WW2 tanks in WoT.

A few more HD model upgrades is nice.

9.17 is a major disappointment - not even one brand new map to play on (or any returned removed maps).

It sill doesn't solve the problem of sky cancer and how it breaks the game. So good work Wargaming.... Way to tiptoe around the real problems with new vehicles, same old maps, and same old broken game mechanics.

In World of Warships when you're going through the tech tree, you can't see any information on modules or upgrades at all. You have to buy the ship to be able to see them.

 

Or go to the Wiki.

 

It's senseless why they do that, but maybe they're heading that way in WoT now?

 

Big deal, Gomez - in WoWS when one buys the new Ship just have a bunch of free exp & credits ready to do the upgrades. Problem solved.

btw, why do you have so many ships without a Commander? I place one in all my ships & most are now 9+ Cpt skills (a couple at 12) (the earliest ones I had).
