The 268-4 is wildly OP.  It makes every single other tier 10 turretless TD obsolete.  

 

E3 and JP100 have alpha.  The 268-4 has everything else including better armor, speed and NO WEAKSPOTS. 

Badger has depression.  The 268-4 has everything else including better armor, speed and NO WEAKSPOTS. 

Foch B has a clip.  The 268-4 has everything else including better armor, speed and NO WEAKSPOTS. 

 

We have to keep these threads alive and keep new ones coming.  We have to just keep complaining over and over.   

I will never play tier 10 as long as this tank is in the game.  If we all stopped playing tier 10 WG would have to nerf it.  

 

We should boycot tier 10 for a week to protest this tank.

I know people complain that the Type 5 is OP, but at least that tank turns into swiss cheese if you are willing to fire gold at it.  Plus it is slow AF.

 

The obj 268 4, I bounce gold shells from the front consistently.  my JP100 - bounces gold about 75% of the time, my tier 10 meds (of course I don't have the russian meds) bounce gold almost 100% of the time.

 

It's great that they made the sides and back vulenerable to regular shells, too bad you have to go 5v1 against it before one of the tanks can get around it...

Let’s talk about a tank that weights in at 75,000 Ibs and has a reverse speed of 22km/hr...the same as the AMX-13 105, and the same as the pre nerfed Grille 15 that got chopped down to 15 km/hr reverse speed because WG thought it too advantageous that the Grille could pop out, blap someone and get back into cover too quickly.

Is it OP? Yes. I don't have one but you can I can deal with them well enough. But the fact is that all the new Soviet tier 10s are OP and this seems to be the only one that gets thread after thread devoted to it.

 

Here are the win rates from the NA server, tier 10, non-premium vehicles: Object 430U, 113, Object 705A, Object 261 then the Object 268 V4 (see attached jpeg).

 

It's a turretless TD. Get behind it, get to the side of it and it's dead. Stop relying on premium ammo to try and solve your lack of skill.

I find it funny the amount of people that don't know this tank does have a weakspot on the bottem of the lower plate there is a line shoot that and below it is 180mm at most I have derped many a 268 4 in my death star

Show me a replay of you flanking an Object 268 v4 in a corridor... while his friends are alive.

 

If his friends are dead, a lobotomized monkey can do it & it is no achievement. I'm waiting.

To everyone saying it everything plus more on all other turretless tds I have to correct this..

E3 -has better dpm, alpha, and depersion, and view range, higher caliber for overmatch.

Jp100- better pen, dpm, dispersion, higher caliber for overmatch, better view range.

Badger- way better dpm, faster reload,better aim time, dispersion,faster shell speed, better gun elevation and depression, more effective frontal armor expect for Lower plate is still bouncy vs most tanks, and better view range.

Will not include Foch as it’s a clip tank.

Maybe we’ll get the old Foch back, the pre nerf one.
Nah, WG hates French tanks.

the e3 ; jp10 ; badger etc all have frontal weakspots that can be useful to opposing tier9/10 's...the 3 issues with this crazy thing wg released is silly frontal armor and obscene mobility...ive come up against these several times and was only reasonably successful in a t-10 firing heat up at its lower plate (he was on a hill,i was pointing up at him) and when he turned slightly his superstructure cheeks gave me a better angle for 2 pens...but only using heat.then it ran away,and my t-10,one of the fasted heavies,if not the fastest, was only barely able to run it down...teammates got the kill,but I got the spotting.

 

that's 2...the 3rd is simply that this thing requires premium to deal with at most angles...wg 's greed is showing.

 

 

this release,and tanks like it,as well as the insane gold spam were seeing lately, is the reason I now play more arty than usual...I just get tired of the BS.things like this simply make a game into work.

This thing needs to be nerfed to super heavy speeds. Then it would be balanced. Due to their quotes though I believe they are just going inflate themselves out of the problem with power creep forcing players to constantly be grinding the next op line to compete

Well WGing just said it wasn’t OP.  In fact it might need a buff.  Really they think it needs a buff.

It gets ridiculous how overpowered that make the Russian tanks in this game. No weak spots and good all around. They take advantage of the Russians small size and lightweight but completely ignore the fact that small tanks have proven to have far higher crew kill probability, higher equipment damage and higher change of ammo cook off. Mean while every German tank is vulnerable to engine damage and has worse accuracy then they should.

It's massively OP. 

 

It seems WG heard all the backlash against replacing the 263 and said "just make the replacement the best tank in the game and they'll accept it"

Not to worry.  The 263 is OP at tier 9.

263 is not op has horrible mobility and the gun is slow and derpy. Only thing it has going for it is armor

This thing is the most OP'd Russian vehicle to come out lately. Almost impervious from the front unless you can hit three VERY TINY weak spots. With all the nose to nose battles anymore with all the POS city maps ? It just BLOWS you away.

I totally agree with your post. It seems we're always having to regrind to get some New Russian OP'd tank.

There sure is a weak spot on the lower plate. But take it on in any map that the lower plate is covered and the try to hit those two VERY tiny other spots on the roof !! Then tell me how easy it is without the War pack or other third party Aim bot to aim for you ?

Horrible mobility?  Have you driven a jagdtiger, T95, Tort, or even a VK45B or ST-1?  Now, I'll agree the gun is not particularly good, and both standard and gold pen are very meh.  I'll also agree the armor is indeed pretty good, if you can hide that massive LFP.

Honestly don’t see a way of fixing the tank while keeping it a close assult td brawler as nerfs to mobility or armor will pretty much remove it from a assult td class. Honestly wouldn’t mind it just going back to a fast firing high dpm td like the 263 use to be

 

Well then maybe they will buff the other assault TD brawlers like the T110E3 and JPE-100 to the standard of the 268v4. Yeah right.

Thanks for that utterly useless advice. Is "balance" a foreign concept to you? It must be considering your statement.

 

It is fine that this one vehicle perform vastly superiour to its peers and we should be fine with it because the answer is to get one itself. Stupid.
