Hey all,

If you follow Wot Talk  you'll know I've been covering the buffs to the British lines, including the FV4005.

I just posted a new video by Quickybaby as an update showing again how these buffs have transformed what was among the worst tanks in the game into one of the biggest damage dealers out there.

You can check it out here.

Yes, and meanwhile, after 3 buffs, the FV4202 is still bad, yet the so-called 'supertesters' thought it would be too good. One has to wonder at the different buffing strategies at work here...

I would prefer prem tanks to be released in a slightly "underpowered" state and then buffed after the fact than have things released OP and then just have them stay that way... But that's just me. Careful, small buffs are the best way to make sure things don't get crazy out-of-hand... Case in point: Maus.

That's very true. Look at all those Tier 8 heavies that came out and really skewed the entire game (looking at you, Defender).

 

I also don't mind premiums being as good as regular tanks, but they shouldn't be better.

But the FV4202 is not as good as the Centurion Mk 1, but the Primo Victoria (a Swedish Centurion Mk 1) is slightly better than the non-premium version.

The new 4005 is I think where it needs to be. The better engine allows it take advantage of its good ground resistances, while the speed limit prevents it from being TOO fast.  The gun depression was needed, although 10 degrees MIGHT be overkill, I probably would have been satisfied with 7 degrees...but I'll take 10 if they are giving it away!

The 180 degree turret traverse and handling buffs were what it needed to differentiate itself from the 215b 183 and actually be somewhat competitive.

Although unhistorical, it would have been hilarious if the physics allowed the 4005, when shooting at a 90 degree angle, to not fully tip over, but go up on 1 track for a second or two lol.
