Stuck on 826 now for 2 hours. Wargaming, get your craptogether
if prefer to call it the Munchausen because I can't pronounce that name.
Any other Vk 72.01 K owners really pissed off? they have turned the VK into a worse E100, it now has almost the same Max Kpm but they did buff then gun...... o wait its 100% the same as a the E100's 15cm gun just with better acc. I would be willing to lose the acc buff to get my 10 kpm wg took back. This leaves the VK with all the weak points it had before making it impossible to sidescrape against any player tier 8 or higher that knows the weak point on side. I think all Vk 72.01 owners sjould be offered a full refund, about 3 million credits (spent on gold ammo durning the event) and 1 month of 3-4 hours a night of a WG employees time.
But in all seriousness Vk owners should be aloud to pick a new CW reward tank if they want, and remember we still have our special camo
well i have checked a few things and here is what i have found good and bad
Speed: the buff is great the tank move now in a more decent speed
Armor: a good buff, the tank has too many weak spots right now that make the tank almost not worth at all, since everyone can pen you and yet you have to suck the hell slow speed but for how slow the tank is and how big is and dificult to drive it should have more armor
Derp gun: well here is something weird because is great if you are lucky enough to find a tank showing its side armor and do more than 700 damage but you dont find that very often specially when you are driving a huge, slow tank, so you will end up with a derp gun that will deal barelly 250 damage to any other tier 9 tank not to mention tier 10 tanks and with a huge awfull and stupid reload time of 24 secs, thats just to much, again for a tank that is way to slow and lack armor for its weigh, most tier 9 heavy tanks will shoot 3 times at you while you still load your second shot and how the armor is right now those 3 shots probably pen you.
well almost all the same that work for the TYPE 4 works for the TYPE 5 but the TYPE 5 has a sligh improve in the reload but is still too long maybe lower it by 1 sec would work because using equipment you lower that reload time from 20 secs to 16.51 which is stil long for the limitations of the derp gun in high tier games again unless you are lucky to find a tank showing its side armor or an open tank like the grille 15
well the tank is a good tier 8 tank only if you never face something higher because if you do you are fcked lets faced is huge as a tier 8 and have so many weak spots lower plate, huge cupola, tracks and maybe more (haven't test it full), good thing is its penetration which is good specially since slow tanks should be able to pen anything in front of them cause if they dont they are done anything can flank them
is about the same as the VK100.01P but worse, not so great armor and slow as hell is the same as the TYPE 4 a tank that weigh should have more armor simple, the VK 45.02B is more mobile and yet have more frontal armor or more effective armor for what it matter and when a tank its almost 3 times more heavy than the VK45.02B should have more armor but no, so why botther with the mauschen if there is a tank faster with better armor and with almost same damage just a diference of 155 damage per min it just a slow moving target
well is awfull that you find a tier 10 tank that is weaker than its previous tank, it has less fire power, less turret armor, have biger lower plate which is easier to pen, less movility, more weigh,less view range, less concealment i mean why would you leave the VK to go to a worst tank?
i honestly think the Pz should get some buffs just to make sure it is better than its previous tank cause right now is not worth at all
as someone else stated if you changed the new tier 10 german tank and not use the vk 72 there is not a single reason why you should buff the vk 72 so if we would go by that thinking you should buff the VK45.02B since you introduce the Mauschen so there is not a single reason to give the reward tank a buff you see it before with the T22 those reward tanks can make people cheat to get then if they are overpowered the VK72 should not get any buff whatsoever

Some feedback after playing on the test server:
- We lost the ability to opt out of the simplified tank stats in garage from general settings, even though it's not in the patch notes. Please add it back, the new layout with white lines and multi-colored icons is not liked by everyone.
- The premium shell for the new Japanese HT guns is basically pay to win with the major increase in alpha (1400 over 1100 standard). Either just give it 10 extra pen or replace it with a HEAT round. In my opinion these guns should not be added at all, we're being told how the devs want to make armor relevant again and now they add big guns that ignore armor.
- For me the test server client has a strange bug (in full-screen mode at least) where after you alt-tab, it keeps auto-minimizing when you try to get back in.

Type 5: With the derp gun It´s great, now that tank has a role. With that gun depresion, it´s very usefull. If you have somebrain you can do hulldown at the first time of the battle in open maps and in city maps you can make sidescraping with the armor buff right now. Seems okay right now, it can bounce some Maus gold rounds with some luck and brain. With the 14cm its hard to pass other type 5 armor even with gold, but seems okay because the 152 will become the real gun. Maybe 16 of gold/6400 credits for the premium ammo its too high. Compared with 13 gold cost of batchat 155 premium round, that price or 14 will be fair.
Dont test it in the Type 4 but both tanks are so similar so you can be usefull now in open maps. Seems okay. Actually a buff of the checks armor like in type 5 would be great.
Maus: with the new accuracy and RoF buff the gun becomes competitive. The armor buff is not as expected. Maybe some side turret buff or 270 in the front.
Panther/M10 buff looks good but cant be played with that ping.
