more armor so more reasons to shoot prem ammo so you need prem time and prem tanks to grind credits. even if you already have older prem tanks you need the new ones to maximize credit income.

Great! I assume the caernavon will get the same buffs as the action X?

so.... First people cry about tanks armor being irrelevant, now they're crying that they can't penetrate that armor. Nice one!!!11

The Centurions needed this. They really struggle to have a niche with their bulky profiles, weak hulls full of ammo racks, poor DPM, bad handling, and mediocrity otherwise. Normally I'd be one of the first ones in line to say that armor is cancer, but Centurions and hull-down are a sacred combination that should have never been parted in the first place.

That's a pretty big buff to the fv4202, how many tanks at tier 8 will be able to pen that turret without gold?

where did it go now??? What happened? Why did people start crying about tanks being overarmored all the sudden? Gold rounds are still here.

Why is every medium getting buffed to have turret armor comparable to the Maus?

Might be another great idea from Serb that all medium tanks are now heavily armored scouts and all lights tanks go right out the windowSmile_trollface-3.gif

PS. They almost out there anyway with all the lovely nerves they had lately.

"...it not necessary for gold comrade, please not spread rumor of gold need. However, for diligence on forums we send GRU illegal bearing WG coupons to nearest park for FREE TENK! Please wear loud Florida flamingo shirt and stand in open park field by festive windage streamer on pole..."

 

I may have to resume pushing up the Brit medium line after all and grabbing the 4202. Mind you with the current tier VIII - X MM issues...

There's a player who's sure
All that penetrates is gold
And he's buying a bullet from heaven.

When he gets there he knows
If the premium stores are all closed
With a gold he can pen what he aimed for.

If they just reduced accuracy RNG to 15% or really anything less than 25% for most or all guns, armor buffs wouldn't be as fickle and easily balance breaking. There's a hatch that can still be penned on these turrets very easily, infact, they have always been the places to guarantee pens as the sloped parts are iffy depending on your gun and angle as is. Remember, these are also effective values, so what you're seeing would be on ideal angles rather than raw thickness, if that wasn't obvious. The problem is it's so annoyingly difficult to hit these weakspots with alot of guns at ranges that aren't brawling ranges (which even then you're still liable to miss either from timing the shot wrong or RNG/not bothering to aim in since you tend to need to keep moving in close ranges engagements like that.

Wargaming. [edited] stop! The British mediums dont need [edited] turret armor. They didnt need the speed buff you wrongly gave them either. [edited] stop buffing crap on tanks that doesnt need buffing. They need DPM and handling buffs.
