So with the incoming arty nerf and its lame stun mechanic it is only time to go back to the ORIGINAL world of tanks that did NOT have the ridiculous alien powers of Sixth Sense.

 

Sixth Sense is OP.

 

Sixth Sense has NEVER existed for any human being EVER!

 

It makes no sense whatsoever to have sixth sense in the game. 

 

Sixth Sense cheats light tanks out of their ability to scout and spot tanks.  Before sixth sense a tank would come around a corner and not know he was spotted and would continue to drive out and finally get shot but by that time it would be too late for him to quickly get back to cover before tanking more damage.

 

Now that same tank drives around the corner sixth sense goes off before teammates can even get their turrets turned and aimed in and he is back behind the corner.

 

LIGHT TANK CHEATED!

 

Tanks can basically spot/scout without ever actually seeing the enemy nor damage done to the environment all due to once again ALIEN POWERS!

 

Now you know there are tanks in the area because your Alien Powered Sixth Sense told you????

 

WHAT????

 

With the incoming arty nerf their is no justification to keep sixth sense around anymore!

 

The crybabies got their way and so they shouldn't be allowed to have some bogus sixth sense skill.  You only know you are spotted when you are shot or see the enemy forces yourself.

 

The wn8 farmers will rage and complain but if they were truly skilled they wouldn't need sixth sense.

 

So in conclusion War Gaming, it is time to remove Sixth Sense from the game, it never should have been in the game it has no real world reference to base it off of, and it cheats light tank players from being able to effectively scout, it was not in the original part of the game and was only implemented due to players crying about you guessed it, arty.

 

 

 

 

UPDATE:

 

 

So I was thinking while I was laying down to go to sleep last night considering all that was posted.

 

And in fairness and in its own right with the comparison perhaps sixth sense should not be completely removed ( I feel that it should doesn't make any sense zero real world references, ect.)

 

So An amendment to the proposal would be that sixth sense will ONLY work if the player that is actively spotting you, is his/herself spotted by your team at the time.

 

This will still re-balance and make it fair for passive scouters that should be able to spot tanks without them knowing.  

 

However other tanks including active scouts that do the constant circles and peaking over ridges will still have sixth sense work as it is now.

 

This would at least give way to the argument  that you could 'suspect' you were spotted since the tank that indeed just spotted you was also spotted by your team.

 

So War Gaming, my amended proposal would be to remove sixth sense alert IF the player that is spotting is NOT spotted his/herself.  Otherwise sixth sense can work as it currently does.  This still address the unbalance of trying to play a scout tank and having a skill take your ability away.

The thing with sixth sense is that it is really kind of a backup more than anything.  I can think of the times that I have seen turrets point my way and got away in time vs the times I took a hit (or five) followed by a lightbulb.

Regardless it makes no sense that it was even introduced into the game and it is time to re-balance the game and make it fair for scouts, they are making it fair for those that don't like arty and sixth sense was to appease them years ago so they wouldn't get one shot by arty b/c they didn't even know they were spotted and were sitting in the open.

If you really want to whine and go down that road then you should just take arty out of the game all together, Arty was never meant to be primary anti-tank.  Arty's job is anti-infantry, bunker and destroying buildings or blockades.  Your argument is invalid cause you are talking about real world reference, and arty was never meant to do what it does in this game.

Go make a thread asking for that then, sixth sense was a direct response to those crying about arty and with the nerf incoming there is now no longer any justification for ALIEN POWERS.

 

Artillery really does exist, sixth sense does not.

 

P.S. my argument is not invalid whatsoever.

I also dont have airplanes and radios communicating tank locations either... but sixth sense is a good secondary.

that's actually true.  Manteuffel himself said that Americans were unbeatable on the defense because our artillery was so effective that the Panzers would have no support by the time they got into the fight.

You are actually wrong about that, crew skills were brought into the game about the same time if not before arty was, there was never enough time between the two to have an opinion or even start to complain or have an answer for arty.  Keep it up, you being uneducated about what you are talking about is funny.

WRONG!   Camo, Repairs, Firefighting

 

That was it.

 

Talking about needing to be educated, you need to go brush up on your history as there were only 3 to begin with and that lasted for some time into early 2012?  I

also Blitz gives you sixth sense for free and that game will never have arty in it.

 

I don't see the point or how this all relates I think it's just more arty butthurt.  Don't play arty then dude!  It is basically just legitimate trolling in game.  I play it too sometimes.  People can get mad at me all they want and I don't care because I know that I'm PLAYING ARTY.

Right, I suggest starting a thread that would require repairs/healing at what you think would be fair.

 

P.S.  Yes you can heal people and Yes you can repair tanks, NO not one single person has or has ever had sixth sense abilities.

Yes and take out crew skillz altogether and or just give all crews all skillz max at the start! Also lets just have med tanks cause who needs all this variety amirite!  Also everyone should just start with t10s let get rid of tiers 1-9 and have all start with t10! While yer at it just have 100 gold roundz cause who wants to shoot lameo regular ap rite!

​Yup and the retarded Camo Klingon cloaking and constant "on" while moving light tank Camo, which is only available to the light tank class.

And at the same time doing away with Auto aim lock on!

I don't really care what this is about is making the game FAIR and BALANCED that is the point in addressing arty and your own worlds trolling (aka not balanced)

 

Time to make it FAIR AND BALANCED for light tanks, you should not be able to know you are spotted especially when you don't even know there are any tanks out there to begin with.

Sixth sense was never meant as an answer for arty, it wasnt until 1-1 1/2 years after they came out with arty that they nerfed it, and sixth sense was out way before they did the initial nerf.  Actually they actually were only t8 arties first, then they came out with sixth sense and a bunch of other crew skills, then they buffed arty to tier 10.  Then they waited about another year and nerfed "balanced" arty with nerfs to aim time load time and shell travel time.  Sixth sense was NEVER and i mean NEVER meant as a counter to anything, other than a perk in the game since we dont have things like planes or radios to let us know where other tanks are at

Quite a jump from get rid of a mechanic that has zero real world references, is OP, and cheats light tanks aka unbalances the game for spotters.

 

Time to make it right!  Time to make World of Tanks Great Again!
