Brothers. Sisters.

 

Nay.

 

Comrades.

 

In this most dreadful time, I come to you with a proposition to correct an error most... erroneous. A fault so faulty, some might even call it literally the worst.

 

A majestic creature that we all have grown to love was once stripped of her pride many moons ago. In one fell swoop, it was stolen from her, and she was left bereft of her glory.

 

I come to you all to rally your support and demand the return of....

 

one tall machine gunny boi

 

I know, my brothers and sisters, I know... It is almost too much to bear, witnessing that which has been lost to us for so many years. The glorious steeple of stalinium that once stood proudly upon our beloved IS-7's crown. Like a wonderful little 14.5mm hat.
I must ask that you steel yourselves lest these reminders of our magnificent past drive us to madness.

 

Here, even in our reality, this majestic being displays her pride upon her head, tall and wondrous. See how she elevates her cannon in the joy of her existence?

 


 

Even in her conception, her creators - blessed be they - understood the proper position of this gem - upright and stoic. A mountainous beacon overlooking the battlefield.

 

 

But how fallen are we, the inhabitants of this world? That we can be so complacent while the creators of our world suppress the majesty of this free and wonderful creature is truly a sin of a most sinister nature.

Look upon her now, my brothers and sisters. Be strong and gaze upon her. Witness what she has been reduced to. The shame that shackles her. Like a unicorn without her horn, she lives in despair.

 

 

I will spare you further distress. This was as disturbing an experience for me as it was for you, and I beg forgiveness for the turmoil I have stirred within your hearts.

 

But this must not stand. Comrades, we must no longer sit idly by while our beloved suffers. She weeps while we spam HEAT at one another, ignorant of her chains. 

 

The time is now. Join me, my brothers and sisters of Stalinium. We call upon the creators of our world, those who some know as "Wargaming.net," to release our beloved from her bonds of flatness. Return to us the moments when enemies trembled in fear at the sight of her Stalinium crown and the tower of terror that stood upon it behind that pile of rubble on Himmelsdorf's "banana road." The moments when the height of the monolith that once graced us with its glory inspired us as we facehugged.

 

Restore her to her former glory.

She must be free.

Why the hell would they do this? I come from Blitz and our IS-7 has the machine gun. It looks awesome! If its only for cosmetics why remove it?

Worst mistake was playing this game in the first place, it's like a crack addiction, you know it hurts to play but you can't stop

I know not, my Blitzing brother. They deemed it unworthy and now it lays down in shame :(
Just for context this is actually a very old graphical change. Basically when the PC version got the HD models, the machine gun was changed to lay down. But it makes me sad because it used to be so magnificent. It was my first tier X :(

Also the first time I tried to post this it told me I was using images with links blocked by the administrator or something, and when I went back the whole body of the forum post was gone.
Proof that wargaming is trying to silence this movement before it takes shape!

Well, on the bright side, no machine gun equals less wind resistance equals better fuel consumption rate?

Looks cool but for me personally, it was bothersome for my field of vision where I like to drive.

Probably why they dropped it.  Things that get in the way of the camera are problematic when you get close to walls and such.

Read this as Paul Bettany from "A Knights Tale" and it's even better.

 

The is7 crying made me laugh a little harder than it should have, I think.

Honestly WG just wants to put down all the tanks with cool machine guns. :confused: Look what they did to the bat chat when they remodeled it.

I have no idea what the general consensus is on it really, but I for one was really saddened by it. I can understand the complaint of visibility but I never felt like I had any trouble with it. When I want maximum visibility I just zoom all the way out and the position of the MG doesn't even matter at that point.

Umm no, the worst mistake ever made was Rubicon and not changing the credit  income levels and experience level multipliers.
