Again, the 150mm gun was already scrapped ages ago. This info is weirdly outdated. It now has a 440-alpha gun that the VK100.01 has.

Not according to this thread.

if this is true (and with it being WG I still consider it on the table) then it just shows that WG is STILL bad at communication with it's branches, something they said they would fix.

Pick the 12.8cm because being slow and armoured is useless as long as you guys refuse to balance premium ammo when it is the cause of most of the balance issues in this game resulting in the Maus and Type 5 heavy being not played and then subsequently lead to their overbuffing of their armour.

 

So a more rounded VK168.02 (P) with the 12.8cm and better maneuverability is the variant that WG should introduce if WG sees more premium tanks a priority over fixing this game's balance.

New maps would be great, especially those grand battle maps.

 

They should be available for tiers 6, or 7, or 8 and up in my opinion.

 

Smaller maps should be for lower tiers and can be considered training maps as I can imagine, tier 1 grand battles would be annoying because of the lack of view range.

 

Premium tanks on these boring maps aren't as appealing as playing that new premium tank on a brand new grand battle map.

This high alpha super heavy [edited]needs to bloody stop. The only vehicles at tier 8 that should have 700+ alpha are the TDs. This is bloody absurd.

 

​It has really long reload 

as well that pen is inadequate cuz It will face tier 9 ad 10 mostly.

if ya look at youtube video it has 2 glaring weakspots, one on front which is a port or hatch mid plate, and a huge cupola that you can hit from a mile away.

it wont be op cuz of those weakspot.

cuz its so slow it will be an arty magnet also.

just update from the advertising commercial on this premium tank.

 

it has 12.8 cm gun with 220 pen on standard, with 440 alpha.  Whether they fix that huge cupola weakspot and the huge machine gun port weakspot on front no clue on that.  Those weakspots make that armor on this tank ineffective cuz everyone will just shoot the machine gun port weakspot up close, and the cupola from mid to long range.

Maybe it's supposed to be that way. For gods sake how can anyone call that [edited]bulge a weakspot when its still 140mm with spherical angles. This is just another unbalanced tier 9 tank thrown down to tier 8 which tier 6s and most 7s can't hope to compete against.

​With mm being 3/5/7 its gonna get eat alive by tier 8,9 and 10 heavies which it will be facing.  Those weakspots are horrible, especially that machine gun port on the frontal plate.

 

Unless they half the height of that cupola, and get rid of the machine gun port weakspot, I am not gonna even think about buying this.  Its slow as crap also, and has a very horrible tank and turret traverse to go along with that slow speed.

 

Its a pos for a premium heavy with those weakspots facing tier 8/9 and 10 heavies in a 3/5/7 mm.

What they could do if they sell this tank as is, is give it preferred match making where it it is high tier all the time, that would make this tank sell with the 3 weakspots its got of lower plate, huge machine gun port, and that humongous cupola.

 

if not half the cupola, get rid of the machine gun port weakspot and give it Vk 100p armor.  That will make it competitive against tier 8/9/10 heavies somewhat with the 3/5/7 mm currently.  Giving this tank swiss cheese like weakspots pennable by tier 6 does not make this tank competitive or worth buying with current MM of 3/5/7 where it will face tier 9 and 10 most of time.

They're overhauling their tools for making maps, which means work is stalled on wholly new maps until the HD map update(s) goes live

 

nobody cares what the excuses are.

 

7-8 year old maps are flat out boring...  worse, 3-4 year old maps that are based on 7-8 year old designs are also boring.

What's the difference between this and the 168.01 exactly?
