Hello all!

yo all that have use the Type 5 in super test have notice the big difference with the buff it had in armor. I can be the heavy we all wanted it to be.

 

But lest look at tier 9...the Type 4 Heavy.

i feel that it still can't do well even when angles are use to increase your armor  effectiveness. Being honest the Type 4 is a gold magnet and has much you try it still gets to die slow. 

 

Yea I have a couple of good games in it but has soon a VK B shows up it do the types 4 job better. 

 

Since the public test is been extended can WG still give a little buff to the Type 4 Heavy also? Not to make it a titanium wall but to be at lest better than now. 

 

If you guys guys agree let me know and if  not also let me now.

The thing is I use the Type 4 on the live server. I tested the Type 5 on this test server and I have to say I'm impress. 

Type 4...needs love not just a  situational derp gun.

  ditto, i was scared of playing the type 4 and t95, in test server i finally loved how t95 is now, but the type 4 and its derp isnt the best combo i felt like it. i did better with the normal gun and i had a feeling the normal gun is buffed somehow, accuracy is very decent, dont know maybe after using derp i felt everything is accurate :trollface:

I thought they were going to make the hull cheeks of the Type 4 Heavy 250mm like the front plate but it seems most people consider the derp gun a big enough buff.

The Type 5 definitely needed those cheeks fixed so I  thought the Type 4 would get the same treatment or would that make the tank overpowered?

I recently finnish my grinding  on type 4 on live server. What i feel with that tank its the gun 14cm its effective in tier 9 battles and even a very good one when there is only 1 or 2 tier 9 per side. The penetration its ok with AP and premium AP its ok too. But when you see a tier 10 its like it lack of pen. Yea 128 cm pen less with AP but at least with APCR can go to 311 wich is great, but 282 in a gun that has 0,42(type 4) and 0,4 (type 5) accuracy and 2,9-2,5 aiming time with less pen only for a few more damage its bad. And with the buff to maus the 14cm its worst gun on tier 10.

 

TL, DR = Type 4 has a two competitive guns 139mm and 152,4mm but Type 5 only has a derp competitive gun, so it need the armor buff.

If i will buff type 4 i will buff their gun depresion with the 152,4mm. Type 4 gun deperesion to the front with 139mm and 127mm is 10 but with the derp its only 6,5 when the type 5 has it on 10 (14cm) and 8 (152mm). I will put it to 7,5 or 8 for type 4 and 8,5 or 9 for type 5
