Well lets start this by saying, pulling crew out and parking the reworked obj 268-4. you say you did this nerf so meds can penetrate the lower glacis? meds arnt supposed to pen the lower glacis while sitting in the back sniping like TDs, they are supposed to flank and very few do that cause of social issues or lack of intelligence. So this is just another "lets make dumb joe happy nerf party in the WoT office". maybe change the name of the game to Knee Jerking to Player Base. this is just another example of WoT trying to make the majority happy so they spend money. Well parked obj 268-4 isnt gonna make you money. you WoT could have spent time explaining how to flank in a med, that would take a half hour instead of days to nerf the obj 268-4. oh well i wasnt very impressed with the obj 268-4 when released, now its just gonna rust away in the back of my garage. good job WoT.

The 268 could out maneuver meds going backwards

I was actually in a 1v1 duel last week against another V-4.  I bounced my last shot and he killed me, so clearly they need a nerf.

44 Double Ds reduced to 40 Double Ds is hardly a nerf.

well the way I see it...,

 

when you have an TD leading the charge in front of your heavy push with no fear, there is a problem.

 

I have never seen one of those TD's sitting back like others, always in the front of the push.

Everyone seems to forget they nerfed and moved the 263 down a tier which angered the community. They had to make it up to them by perhaps making the new 268 v4 on the OP side. Now its gonna be nothing but an average TD. All they had to do was keep the 263 at tier 10. I don't understand why they make things so difficult.

The tank had a server-wide average win rate of 57%.... Average. It reversed faster than many other tanks can maneuver around it. It had "lol don't even try" frontal armor that required luck AND good aim AND premium ammo to pen, while just sitting out in the open with the front toward the enemy.

 

 

Just because you've still only managed a 43% win rate in the tank doesn't mean it doesn't need to be nerfed.

It's still going to be very good even with the nerf

It's fine if a tank is good. What isn't fine is when it's good at a LOT of things.

I'll worry about a tank when it makes it to the live server, not before.

No one worried about v4 but it hit live servers anyway...

So you think a TD with a great gun, insane speeds (forwards and reverse), outstanding traverse that can keep up with flankers, and armor that frontally even an Strv 103B struggles to penetrate, doesn't deserve a nerf? I'm guessing either you have the tank yourself, or they're never on the enemy team for you.

Great gun ha the jokes everything else is correct but the gun isn’t great... it’s the worse gun on a tier 10 td in terms of dispersion and aim...

Just double checked and you're right there. Accuracy is the worst feature, but that's also compensated for since they frequently get up close and brawl.

Which is why I always said a nerf to there armor is okay but can not be over done or else bad easy to pen armor on a close up brawler td will be pointless. I think the lower plate should actually be a real easy to hit weak spot but the cupola should be left the same imo and the mobility nerf is fine.

Yeah, I get that. I'm not saying it needs to be nerfed into oblivion, personally. Just enough so that it's balanced out. A tank that's speedy with crazy good armor and traverse, and a gun that's very solid for closer range combat, definitely needs a change. Imo, either thin out the armor and lower the traverse and reverse speeds, or slow down the speed overall, traverse, and add a reliable frontal weakpoint, even if it's a bit on the smaller side.
