It's frustrating to deal with premium HE like it's frustrating to deal with Arty and TDs who camp A line or K line. The only difference is the Type 5 is a heavy so it can have a big influence on whether the team wins or loses through it's play.

 

Essentially these types of players are lowering the skill bar in a game that already has 25% RNG. Because when you turn that corner there might be a TD in the bushes at A1 but turning that corner is likely the right move to try to win the game.

 

For type 5s you need to pen them to compete and that's easier said than done. Especially when he can premium HE you anywhere.

Any tier 10 heavy can out dpm the type 5 so a 1v1 engagement the type 5 always loses.

 

It can blow up tier 10 lights and one branch of the german tds.  Other than that it's at a disadvantage vs any tier 10 tanks.  Tier 10 meds with heat can pen it from any direction and tier 10 tds can nuke it from orbit.  Most tier 9s can go through it frontally as well.

 

The only thing it does is force side scrappers to retreat.

So basically it dominates the heavy spots on the map if it has any support at all.

 

You aren't going to 1v1 a Type 5 99% of the time. It can poke and hit you anywhere and you have to aim with your premium. And not only that it's alpha on non-pens will compete or outclass most other heavies.

 

DPM is really overated.

The problem I see is you are trying to fight a tier 10 super heavy that is known for its armor mainly FRONTALLY in a tier 8 tank would you do that to a maus or a even better example would you fight a hull down obj 140 in your ism then complain it had to much armor

Never had a problem trading them with E100 heat.

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.

 

You sound like an entitled kid who expects the whole world to bend over for him

 

Nerfs and Buffs are an integral part of 99% of multiplayer games, and if you can't swallow that pill, maybe you should go play a single player game

The type 5 is only of the only tanks that's op enough to almost challenge the 268-4. We need 268-4 killers out there. Nerf that stupid tank then we'll talk.
