zero frontal weakspots against skill rounds. the corner angles, which should be weakpoints, are actually STRONGER armor, giving this tank the best power stance in game.

It’s also the tallest and one of the slowest tanks in game making it easy arty food

being tall and slow with slab armor makes you nearly arty immune. its not uncommon for them to take sub 100 damage direct hits

Don't bother head on unless your gold ammo has decent pen but if you are mindful take a crap through the shoulders as that is where the ammo racks are, for turds all you can do is the sides and rear. I've killed Type 4s with the IS6 so if that turd can do it than most tier 8s can as well.

Boi it looks like I'd better finish my Type 4 grind highlight reel. People still think it's balanced. One game in particular I made it to the enemy cap with 0 damage (enemy all lemminged other flank). Put myself against one wall, and proceed to farm 3k damage and nearly 5k blocked. There were 5 tier 8s surrounding me when I died. 

 

 

The Japanese heavies can do stupid thing other heavies just can't get do. Enemy heavy +2 tiers is sidescraping perfectly? Easy 300+ damage. Cheeky scout decided to poke? RIP him, thanks for the 1100 damage, buddy. Big HE guns are bad enough on mediocre/bad platforms like the KV-2 and FV4005, but put them on a superheavy and it becomes a whole new level of stupid. 

 

The devs have been pushing the limits on what they can do in order to make each of the 50 lines in this game unique, and some of their decisions led to more than questionable choices.

Type 5 needs no nerf. No tank does. Deal with the challenge or find something else to play. The fastest way to drive yourself out of business is let a customer pay or work for an extended period of time for an item or skill. then tell them sorry we are removing it or taking away abilities. The job is to present a challenge not offer an online daycare service,

lt is not uncommon for them, to take zero damage. Especially if it is a Bat Chat SPG. 

 

Unlike the super heavy tanks out there, like Jag Pz, EHundo, Maus, PzK Vll - that feature large engine docks that are only fourty to fifty (mm)  the Type 4 and 5 are literally layered in 75mm minimum armour everywhere. lt makes them among the best, if not the best HE absorbing tanks in the game, considering their high HP and spaced armour panels too

 

lt will literally take minutes straight, of firing, for even 3 arty on a team to destroy a single Type 5.

I have been saying that for years. Nerf arty pay me back everything i did to grind it. Nerf type 5 pay me back everything I am doing to grind it. Change things sure to keep the game interesting but don't do a massive nerf of things because of whiny  players. The NA server has lost popularity because of all the nerfs and changes. The game should have seasons of this or that type of tank being the better but should always go back. I.E. clan wars season of the medium. Season of the td  etc. OR even a buff then go back to normal when the season is over. never a total destruction of a line or type of tank because a few on the bottom or top cant stomach that difference.

It also has the easiest gun to use of the tier 10 heavys. It has great armour and it has no regard for enemy armour.

You're complaining about the Type 5 being OP so you decide to show it using gold in the IS-M? Show it using normal rounds in a tier 10, then gold ammo. That's just dumb

as an ISM owner...yeah I tend to give up or run when I see a Type because gold rounds just don't reliably pen even when you get the hull cheeks at the right angle.

Doesn't make the Types any less of a problem because they're extremely trollish. They need to give the Type 4 the hull from the oho, remove the 15cm derp from the Type 4 and the gold round from the type 5.

Video games are a balancing act. One thing, cannot be so powerful as to tip the scales always in its favour. WG WoT is slow at deciding and implementing, but it does so, occasionally.

im sorry it needs a buff. 1400 damage is too low. buff it to at least 3800 so it can 1 shot itself without penning because we all know that HE never pens anything

It does need something buffed on that frontal armor. 

It' great that its arty food and all but that's not a defense to leave it as is.

It's a super heavy. Have a cup of concrete and harden-up.

most arty these days focus paper tanks.  they have the reload, accuracy and aim time to punish them - and, when a type's support is dead, provided your team has enough living players, it can be swarmed for the kill.

 

in corridor maps, the counter to the type5 is either to out last their team, or pray to RNGesus whichever HE flinging opponent on the enemy side (FV/183/Type) manages to high roll it more often than the amount of rolls they take trading with it.
