If the gun mantlet on the VK remains a weak spot, more hp helps those shooting at it, not those driving it. Its gun probably needed the buffs it will get. The sad part is, they can overbuff the VK and the Panzer VII and he 268 V4 will still be a better heavy in randoms.

Mantlet? what?

 

I always shot these in the "shoulder plates" on the side since they are always trying to sidescrape...

Ok first off the vk is fine . It has very high stats as far as tier ten heavies go this tank does not need more hp or better pen heat rounds are you kidding . Next ok the 121 b is not good fine buff it but giving a medium 420 meters base view range is crazy what about the tier tens lights wargaming said they couldn't give them more view range so they are going to give a medium more view range lol . I swear wargaming wants wot to fail . And what about nerfing the 907?? The rest of the changes look ok those tanks need the buffs . Better pen heat 340 mm of heat pen is not enough that's crazy and giving a medium the best spotting over lights is just bs. https://worldoftanks.com/en/news/clan-wars/st-of-cw-tanks/

 

russian clone tank with better view range than..... vision tanks like BC patton leopard

I've surprised myself a few times when facing the PZ7 and VK7201k as the turret can be surprisingly weak when not played carefully though I would never shoot the gun mantlet until I Know that I can pen which isn't often. The other weak spots I consider common knowledge so I don't bother playing tanks with turret bulges that make side scraping difficult.

True story, check it on tanks.gg  - the mantlet around the gun has less net effective armor than the shoulders - low 200s straight on, even less if the turret is slightly angled. Most things it sees can pen even with AP.

it's like WG is trying to let us know they have no idea how to balance a game.

the amount that they just trash light tanks is ridiculous considering they're supposed to be scouts but get outspotted by meds without even trying

WG doesn't care about balance as they only consider RU when making changes that are suitable towards them which is why we have Russian bias, +/-2 MM, broken gold spam, and so much more. NA and EU simply do not matter when it comes to game balance, the only exception to that is the Chinese server where they can request tanks to be added to the game.

These aren't big buffs and they are bad tanks....the VK, it's suppose to be a supper heavy and battle with the Maus (3,000 HP), E100 (2,700 HP) and Type 5 (2,900 HP)...they look at the stats, this makes sense to me.

 

    A case could be made for buffing the T95E6 and the M60 in the interest of balance. As for the others, their performance is perfectly average or above as it is. Maus added for reference.

yeah the game itself has promise... you just need to take it away from WG.

like taking a toy from a child that only breaks things.
