Morning, everyone!

 

Hope that you're having a good Friday! Today, I wanted to let you know about a new Supertest. It is for the reward tanks of Season 1 of Personal Missions.

 

We intend to make these vehicles more competitive in the current game environment. Their status demands that they should play well as reward tanks earned by performing hard and complex tasks.
The T 55A will receive new turret armor, close to the one that the Soviet T-54 has after the HD upgrade. The gun will gain some firepower and also in the parameters responsible for enjoyable play. The tank’s mobility will increase, as well.

 

 


The Object 260 will become tougher and, well, meaner. The turret protection will be bolstered (first of all, in the gun mantlet). We’ll also increase the firepower; improved stabilization and rate of fire will make a nice bonus for those who managed to achieve the top reward of Season 1.

 


The stats are not final and may change depending on Supertest results and feedback. Please follow the news and best of luck in every battle!

Hmm, I never once thought the T 55A needed a buff, but okay, I'll take it.

They're decent tanks as they are right now, but I definitely am happy about the buffs. Should make them a bit more enjoyable to play and more competitive, which only makes sense for reward tanks like these.

SIDE NOTE: Gnomon, while you're "all alone" in Austin this weekend, break out a flash sale for the FCM pak 30 or whatever the hell that Tier 3 premium TD is, or the SU-76i, or the PzIIJ.

 

No one at Wargaming has to know...

I'll take T 55A upgrades and smile.

 

When I got Object 260 I was really happy... then I played it, everyone was penetrating it like $2 who care.  After 11 games I stopped playing it in favor of IS7.

Might just be me but I suggest that you focused on the wrong reward tanks WG. The real dogs are the StuG and the T28 HTC. As it has been, you don't do the missions for either of those two. You do them to get the girls and to move on to the T 55 and 260.

As long as you are giving out some love you might want to consider that.

The 55a need a little love in the turret since it has a paper hull, unlike the t-54. But this buff will be very nice for it.

Didnt think the 55a needed a buff, but whatever I'll take it

 

Obj 260 needs a depression buff to the gun (-7) and removing the overmatch, plus the proposed armor changes

Finally! The 260 really needed love. It was one of the worst tier X heavy tanks in the game. It wasn't good at anything except speed and the 277 is just as fast and out performed it in every other way.

He WG, you know the T55A is German right? So why are you buffing it?

The entire German Tech tree is one big steaming ball of SH*T, but WG is buffing the one tank in the tree that is GOOD (because it's based on a Russian tank).

 

How about buffing these German TECH-TREE tanks:

 

EVERY SINGLE GERMAN TIER 10

EVERY SINGLE GERMAN TIER 9

EVERY SINGLE GERMAN TIER 8

 

You see where I am going with this?

 

There isn't a single tank in the entire German Tree that could not use some kind of buff, but WG is buffing the best tank in the entire German tree.

 

 

 

This has to be deliberate right, a slap in the face to the entire German tech-tree, or do you think WG is this incompetent?

Since the T-54 was buffed ages ago it was only a matter of time before they did the same to the T-55a. The trouble is that the same old 201 pen forces it to be a HEAT dispensary when trying to use its accuracy to fight at range as it was supposed to. Buffing the pen and shell velocity of the AP should be considered.

It's not like either the Stug IV or the hideous T-28 are setting the world on fire either.

One more mission, and the T-55A is mine, the final heavy one, with honors hopefully.

With my 6 skill German crew the Stug does fine for me, but yeah the T-28, lawd, I parked that stinker.
