So which plain old tech tree tanks need a buff? Why?

I'll start with the Sherman Firefly- it's too slow even for a Sherman. Giving it Easy 8 speed would not make it OP but it would be more fun AND realistic.

The M3 LEE/GRANT is a notoriously despised tank. Adding a cast hull upgrade to the existing tree could give it an armor boost and make it more bouncy. Cast hulls existed in large numbers, again this would not create an OP tank, just maybe an adequate one.

The KING TIGER is pretty disappointing. If you ever had an excuse for an OP tank, the Tiger is it. Make it fearsome.

The T34/76 is similar: legendary in history, meh in tech tree. Speed buffs ?


 

What Are Your ideas?

The Tiger P.  

 

That sad pile o' refuse leads to 4 different lines...that's a lot of grinding in a poor tank.  Either buff it or let the Tiger I lead to more tanks than just the KT.

Play game few more times before suggesting changes... it's like a green belt in TKD proposing "improvements" to kicks.

You're right about that, I've been avoiding it for just that reason.

The M3 doesn't need a buff. It gets a bad rep because most players don't play to its strengths. Its gun at tier 4 is ridiculous.

As to needed buffs: Pretty much every tier 8 heavy under performs compared to the premium T8 HTs.

The batchat 12t. Feels "meh" with its its autoloading capability; gun is much worse tier for tier than amx 13 75. Same/little less Dpm, worse aim time for only an extra 140 clip potential buff :/. Not to mention it leads into 3 lines after that. Buff aim time to 2 seconds, buff clip reload from 17 to 13-15.

I also vote Bt-12t. As a tier 8 it seems to perform pretty terribly compared to tier 7 lights. It has low view range for tier, low alpha and a smaller drum compared to say the t71. Hard for this tank to perform well at tier 8.

Buffing some regular (so to speak) tanks would help take the poison out of all this bad publicity about OP Premiums.

T-34/100 and TVP VTU, both very lackluster tanks

Yeah?  At the outbreak of WW2, actress Heddy Lamarr had an idea regarding radio guidance systems. She was more or less told to "stick to cheering the troops up".

 

So,  Lamarr and composer George Antheil developed a radio guidance system for Allied torpedoes, which used spread spectrum and frequency hopping technology to defeat the threat of jamming by the Axis powers.Although the US Navy did not adopt the technology until the 1960s, the principles of their work are now incorporated into modern Wi-Fi, CDMA, and Bluetooth technology,and this work led to their induction into the National Inventors Hall of Fame in 2014.

 

I would say her proposal to ' improvement to kicks ' shows that no one's ideas should be dismissed out of hand.

I feel the Is6 needs a huge buff...  because, all these new tier 8 premium heavys and new heavys are getting great armor and great gun... the IS6 has the worst tier 8 heavy gun in the game and its armor is barely above average... I'm not saying it a [edited]tank it can be great like any other tank, but the gun is just not good enough for this game anymore... even premium shells aren't penning weak spots of tanks, the IS6 needs prem to pen the lower plate at a flate angle of a the vk100.01p and the kv-4 is hard to also pen, and the new chrystler, how ever u spell, isn't a guarantee pen with prem ammo on its weak spots... the defender is freak op as well. So maybe we should consider a bit of a buff to the IS6 where it will receive a gun that has 201 pen cause 201 pen is still now days a very [edited]premium tank gun... but that's my opinion, Please consider it and thank you! :)
