yep they cut the pen, increased the dispersion and lowered the rate of fire. Its now worse then the IS-7. edit Looks like the aim time got nerfed as well

I do not believe the stats of the Power to weight are nerfed being the max weight according to

tanks.gg is 60 tons.  Even i it was nerfed, the power to weight is 15.13

these are the stats for the obj 277.

these are the stats for the is7 according to the tankopedia   

 

 

So aslong as the power to weight isn't nerfed to 9.43 this tank will still be viable

I'm just glad they're acting on nerfing the crap out of the V4.  That OP thing was ridiculous.  

I just hope the nerf is enough.  It's still gonna be a really good TD.

So basically as usual the seal clubbers get to pad their stats and by the time the rest of us get to the Russian TD we get screwed. So typical....and btw fix your damn MM.....It is getting beyond obvious now.

Kinda sad to see the role of the 430 II being changed, this tank is a blast to play as is. I'll have to make do I guess.:(

The Obj 268 V4 was announced 2-3 months before it came to the live server. It's also been on the live server for 4. If you can't get the tank in 6-7 months then you didn't actually want the tank, you only wanted it once everyone found out it was broken. Since this is obviously the case what right do you have to complain? 

 

Also, seal clubbing is a thing at tier X?

As World of Tanks (WOT) moves more to World of Redundant Soviet Tanks (WORST). The entire aged German line needs to be reworked.

WoT your getting it all wrong on the obj 268-4, any good player can whack that mole so its not a armour problem, you went the wrong way in that dept. what it needed was a pen boost, side scraping type 5 heavy can bounce 4 out of 5 shots from an obj 268-4 while the type 5 can just bounce HE off the hatch till the obj 268-4 is done. in fact vs type 5 heavies in my obj 268-4 on city maps i just drown or suicide if mm gave us the short end of the straw, stupid to even try. so boost the armour and/or pen on the obj 268-4 or seal club the type 5 heavy since you did buff that junk a while back. Still waiting for armour buff on 705A too, parked till then like i said. luv the 705 tho its fun at tier 9, but the 705A is garbage at teir 10. so hurry up and do your job WoT like a said several times now.

yes seal clubbing is very real at tier 10, every match ive been in where there are only 3 tier 10s and those 3 are a platoon of 268v4s they just steamroll the other team in 3 to 4 minutes with ease even if they are only average players.  That td has created a version of tier 10 seal clubbing, they should not be allowed to platoon together much like arty cant cause its broken when they get in match with 8s

so from what I read of the 277 now...    why wouldn't you just get a 430U?   They are both apparently "heavy-mediums"  except one is technically heavy and the other is technically medium..  they both have meh hulls, good turrets, decent guns, but the 430u is faster.   Sure the 277 has more pen but the extra mobility means you are more useful and tend to survive longer.  The 277 is making little sense here.

Doesn't look like the "nerf" is going to do much to the 268v4. Its still going to be OP despite the changes.

Object 268 Version 4 : you did not touch the OP apsects of this TD and this shows that Wargaming does not really listen to the player base. Mobility is the huge problem, not the gun or the weak spots, when it can run with mediums it shows how broken it is. Then add the 3/5/7 MM to that grabage TD you get a playing field that turns people off playing tier VIII and that adds to your match maker queu issues (the pref tanks were an excuse for your oversight).

 

People in corp better start payimg attention, wallets are going elsewhere......

 

P.S. maybe the 268 V4 didn't get the propper nerfs because Wargaming doesn't want to upset people who spent real money climbing the tech ladder & bought silver......hmmmm

This is just another example of why I went from spending $300 a month on the game to absolute zero. I wont run out and grind a new tank until after its received its obligatory nerf. Grille/Waffle debacle cured me of that. The Preferred MM coming fiscal will end my even purchasing Prem time as there is nothing left to strive for. Considering it has been rumored they have reduced earning it seems I will cash in the remainder of my tier VIII Prem tanks also.
