What is it's WR like on the test server?  Having seen all the videos out there (including later ones where it shows how to pen the sides if you're farther away) - have people now adjusted to the Obj 257 or does it feel OP in actual gameplay?  I personally like the idea that vehicles with unique traits could be included to match their RL counterparts, so I'm hoping WG find a way to make this trait balanced to make the tank unique.

It will be almost impossible to get a true feel for it until every match stops being a 8 obj 257 and 7 704a' on each side

(a moderate exaggeration but the point remains.)

The second iteration of the common test is suppose to come out shortly so how it is now may change in the next day or so.

I personally think its just another tier9.. people panic because they see one video and start screaming its OP, its not OP, played it plenty, and it gets rekt just like everything else.. yea, u may bounce shots here and there, but that's from people actually knowing how to play a tank.. once you figure out how to pen it, its a decent well balanced tank.. but you know, some people want to be able to track it, and take all the HP off the tank by shooting a single wheel sprocket over and over again...if u cant do that, its OP!!!!! OMG!!!!

But is it really frustrating to play against?  Or not really?  It would seem to be more apparent against teams of them.


 

Thanks for the feedback guys.  Maybe I'll cave and give it a shot next iteration - don't have enough to time to grind TR and bonds nightly as is, heh.

Its actually pretty easy to play and its pretty easy to play against if you have more than 1 brain cell.

The impact that needs to be measured is how does one or three upsets a normal team composition. Can they imperviously push or lock down a flank on their own.

its a great heavy tank imo , little better than T-10 feels smaller, better turret armor and is bouncier than T-10.

 

All in all , i love both tanks would be hard to choose.

I thought Easter was yesterday and yet here is this post, resurrected to walk the forum again as if the Obj 257 was hot out of the oven!

 

Well anyway, just a reminder that I should play the one I have since its in my garage and not yet played.  Had the IS-7 already and am working on other lines.....

I never lost a fight against a 257 in my t10. I think more unexperienced players play 257

Played the 257 once. Then sold it. The gun is horrid compared to the t10
