Giving them weak spots is all cool and stuff but why the hell did they get derp guns in the first place? It's ridiculous that other HTs have to aim for the Japanese HT weak spots while they can just auto-aim and deal 400~600 damage every single shot.

WOW! Just WOW! The OI is one of slowest tanks in the game with poop traverse speed. It needs the rear armor because it can not turn around to engage targets. While we are talking of weak spot for the OI series of tank just get beside them and a tank 3 tier lowers can pen them. Yet another reason I am glad to not be a paying customer of the this game or any of your games.

Next, nerf these new premium tanks and rebalance premium ammo. These tanks just like any other super heavy will still be spammed because people have become lazy of aiming at weak spots. 

 

Common excuses; Either the weakspot is too small, not enough of them or who has time for aiming...?....

How about you First Fix your UI instead of taking peoples money.Hard to platoon with Chat and Friends list Broken.

 

Join a clan. In a clan you can bring up the clan roster and use it to create a platoon with clan-mates. But if you aren't interested in being a clan, then I take it you aren't truly interested in fixing your own problem.

This isn't working right all the time either.  Sometimes my clanmates show up as Player 1, Player 4, Player 5, etc.

I'm more concerned about the overpowered Premium tanks at Tier 8, than any of the regular tanks. The armour on those T8 Prem heavies is ridiculous, and they won't be nerfed because WG doesn't nerf Premiums.

 

I don't find the OI or the OI EXP that hard to kill, as long as you are in a equal tier or better tank, but it can be very frustrating if you are in a Tier 5 tank hitting an OI from the front. 

 

I don't really know if the nerf was all that necessary, but neither do I think it is a terrible idea.

 

On the other hand, something has to be done to rebalance the Tier 8 tanks now that WG have completely ruined it with power creep.

Instead of nerving the Japanese heavy tanks it would be more beneficial that wargaming fixes the almost two month utter broken contact list and chat!

Still has the HE "skill" gun. Most worthless rebalance I've ever seen. This change just means that if you get a good dispersion roll and if you get a lucky pen roll you can damage it from the front. Or, in other words, it's all up to RNG. Or you can just press 2.

Hey dance. How about wargaming fixes first the utter broken contact list and game chat???

Because as it is pretty much nobody on the NA server can platoon with friends and it takes a lot of fun out of the game.

 

PS. How is it, that there are no communication issues on the EU or RU server?

 

I would message my friends in game about these changes, but ..........

The Chrysler taught everyone a lesson.  Instead of coming out with over-powered premiums, launch a bunch of premiums that are balanced, then nerf everything around them. :coin: :B :trollface:

all the tanks in the line except tier 9 and 10 needed buffs they get penned by everything and are too slow to defend themselves atleast thats how the O-I and O-Ni have felt to me probably just gonna xp to the type 4 unless the O-Ho is decent .. Is it better to run the 10cm on the O-ni rather than the 15cm

This wouldnt be necessary if W G wouldnt stoop to making new lines op to make it more attractive to people to play.They should realize that people will play new just to have new tanks as they have already found with premium tanks.Even with premium tanks they take the same route,throwing things out of balance then comes the inevitable nerfs to balance.In the mean time,we have been made to play under unbalanced terms. WG proves time and time again they know nothing about balance so I wish they would just stop using this term as it is just propaganda.They make us play with cheats and under unbalanced terms.They need to look at their own "balance".

You are trying, but you must go farther. The changes to the Type 4 and 5 effectively change nothing, nerf the armor some more and remove the derp guns. I also dont really think the O-I exp needed the armor buff, but good on you for removing the gun... that gun was broken. O-I changes are nice. And I dunno about the O-Ho... it probably needed a prem shell... but you could have just buffed the standard shell a little instead...

Ya that doesn`t look too `weak`to me either.

 

Good thing I broke down and bought an arty (previously none in my garage) for ranked battles so I no longer have to worry about such things.

 

Put some real weakspots onto the Maus and Type5 and I`ll consider returning to my normal tanks for ranked.

Seems the crybabies always get their way.. I already dont play my Type 4 because it seems to always go against Tier 10s and reload rate is crap .. Now your going to make it thinner on a tank that really doesnt bounce many shots .. Just great.. 

 

As for the type 5 it already has it's weak points if your know how to play against .. everyone wants the easy button ... Whats the use having gold ammo ? isnt it for piercing armor that's too thick for regular ammo ?... Shall i start crying about some american TDs with 300 mm front ends ? NO.. i know certain tanks need gold to penetrate... Everyone is crying because it hurts their profit margin .. If you want all vehicles to be penetrated with regular ammo than let take gold ammo out of the game ..

No, gold ammo is for minimizing the effect of RNG on shots where the game depends on it. The fact that certain tanks require gold to pen is bad. All vehicles should have weak spots (proper ones) that can be penned reliable with standard ammo with good aim. The spots that the Type 4 and 5 are getting are not weak spots. They are not reliable pens, even with good aim.
