I still can’t fanthom how everyone hasn’t woken up to the fact there’s always a game breaking tank around everyone just complains when it’s not there fav tank that breaks the game.


There always is and always will be a game breaking tank end of story let’s move on till another 2 months when the next one gets released then another 10000 people complains about it as it does nothing. Also even if this gets nerfed there’s still the 430u which is almost as bad.

 

the flavor of the month will always change just a if time

Even Circonflex said in his vid last night that he doesn't like the tier 10 meta right now mainly due to the 268v4. One of the best players in the world thinks its OP and ruins tier 8-10.

There has never been a tank at tier 10 that drives superheavy armor around at 55kph.  That is why it's "different" than other FOTMs.

There is overpowered which is the norm and then there is completely broken like the Waffle and the 264.

 

The list of broken tanks is a very small one.

well...duh.. Of course he hates it. It hurts his stats and he needs otherworldly stats to get stream viewers, thus paying his bills.  

 

He'll hate on the 268-V4, yet play an M44 arty, which is pretty much another broken tank. I know. I have it. I admit it's broken.

Bad comparison because arty as a whole is a broken mechanic.

This to me is one of the biggest problems with the current mm. When you have a broken tank at tier ten it has a much larger impact then a broken tank at lower tiers. No tank should be left broken op but at ten it really shouldn't happen.

 

I am looking forward to the removal of premium ammo but who really thinks Wargaming will put any thought into the overall impact of the game? When they remove premium ammo what does a tier 8 do against something like this other then just die? At this point with premium ammo ALL tier eight tanks are going to struggle with this tank, without it they are going to be powerless to do anything against it.

yes, if that tank pushes a flank, it will win 99% of the time......, and I have seen how half the opposite tanks run away from it....they can't do nothing against it....

 

You can stop it by destroying its tracks, but no1 wants to do it because you win nothing by stoping that tank 10 minutes only by permatracking it...

 

In a 3-5-7 scheme, 3 tanks have the chance to stop it, 20% of the tanks have a chance, and even they have struggle to deal with it, so the 80% remaining have even worse chance to deal with it.

 

Everytime I see a player with that tank it I feel He is a "cheater", like the players using the T67, they are the worst players imho, not worst in stats, worst in quality..

 

Just start reporting every 268v4 for "unsportsmanlike conduct." 

 

I mean....it kinda is unsportsmanlike.

268 4 is the easiest tank to kill.  i cant believe you plebs have an issue with it. let me teach you how to dispose of them quickly. 

 

here is how: 

 

1. get yourself a super conq. 

2. put 30 apcr shells in it, food, advanced equipment x3 (rammer gld vents), then use consumable advanced rammer enchancement

3. set your crew to bia sit aware recon repairs smooth ride clutch breaking and other good skills. should take you no more than 100-200 games to get the 6 or so crew skills you need

4. put some fancy awesome pink camo on your superconq for extra attitude

 

now after you have completed these steps, load up in a game. find the 2684 and drive straight to it. drive right into its face. crash into it. now just dpm  the sucker into the hatch. ez peezy.  easiest tank to kill that way. not like something impossible to pen like the IS7.

Now try that with basically any other tank.

With that argument he could just play it a ton himself and show off his otherworldly stats. He basically does well in all tanks OP or bad. Your attempt to diss him is pathetic.

and on test I've full HESH penned it with the FV 4005 - doesn't mean that such occurrences are common place.

 

a look at any of the tank curves over on wotstats shows the thing stupidly over performing at basically every skill level, which by definition is over powered.

 

the agility for such armor is what's so absurdly broken.  the grille 15 was "too agile" so it had to have a nerf.  meanwhile, this thing weighs nearly as much as a JpzE100 and can out run medium tanks...

 

Hellcat needs it's stats back.

I would say that this is consistent with my experience ... out all the 'new' vehicles ... the Super Conq is the one that I keep tabs on the most ...

well what i wrote actually works, assuming the 14 other people on his team dont shoot you, he doesnt pen you as you are driving towards him and you are able to hit and pen every hatch shot once you hug him. so basically 1 in 100000 games. but thats the best way to deal with them :)))))

 

in less absurd more realistic situations, this tactic somewhat works in banana alley on himmelsdorf.

right. but thats not the point of my post.. :i my point is that we have broken as [edited]tanks in this game that are ruining gameplay on levels unseen in the past. remember when WG said them putting the "op broken" is7 in the game was a mistake as it damaged gameplay so much? mmmmm

the flavor of the month will always change just a if time 

 

someone hasn't been paying attention for how glacially slow wargaming is in releasing "flavor of the months" that are this broken.  I'll give you just a couple of examples of what is most often more typical than "of the month"

 

  • original KV1S / Hellcat.  these two ruled tier 6 meta for literally years
  • HEAT Derp of M4 PZIV - also years
  • E5 "too strong" - way more than a month.  I know of folks that played several thousand battles in it when it was in its prime
  • Maus over buff was at least 2 patch cycles, and it's still stupidly over buffed with respect to armor

 

further, what you're also obviously tone deaf to, is that the developers themselves that have been interviewed about the 268v4 have at various times suggested that they're going to buff the monstrosity...

268-4 is broken AF and has no balance. Unless your driving the tank it’s not worth playing the match.  Really am tired of the way things are going. 1 standard round accuracy nerf at range, 2 credit making is garbage now, 3 match maker just puts you in rotation of death and loss after loss. The match maker does not give the good match after good match. It just craps on your face, rubs it in and says doesn’t that taste good. 80% of my matchs the last three days have been my teams total collapse in the first 3 minutes.
