After all these years, can somebody please explain to me how you can have Russian bias on Soviet tanks in a video game developed by a Belarusian company? What is my stupid self not understanding?

 

 

Analogous to expecting Texans not to have an American bias.  Yeah, legally Byelorus might be a tad bit more independent than Texas is... But that's a technical distinction.

As for the TS-5, it's pretty awful. It's not OP at all. l don't think it's bad by any means but it certainly isn't better than the T28 or the Proto imo. 

 

"It's pretty awful..." "I don't think it's bad by any means..."
 

Lol. Ok then.

Nice to have an OP American TD for a change. I mean the T28, T28 Prot, T30 and T95 are just marshmallows. I guess Russian bias doesn't exist after all!.

 

Ts-5 OP? Hahahaha! Nice one!. The ts-5 is the worst situational i have ever seen. First, it only has pen/alpha and good camo. Aside from that it has nothing. The upper armor is godly unless the tank has good accuracy and aims your weak commander hatch. The lower plate is a fekkin joke, even a tier 6 can penetrate it and it doesnt help how FEKKIN BIG IT IS!!!. You are no sniper not for the camo but for the accuracy, and you are no assault tank because of the extremely obvious and weak parts easy to hit. So you cant just face someone like with the t95, because unlike t95, you have a big lower plate that screams weakness and is easy to pen. You cant face-hug because if the tank is bigger than you this can easily aim your commanders hatch and fek you. So isnt OP. It is situational. Now if you can find a game in which you can hide your lower plate and be far enough for the enemy to not hit your commanders hatch then you are a god in that game, just like a lowe that can hide its lower plate or an is6 that reverse sidescrape. Ts-5 is no defender so dont say it is OP.

I don't if its overpowered, I'm curious if its better than the T28.   It seems more mobile but with the same armor, and the gun has a very quick reload.

 

Well, it's more mobile, similar armor, and better reload so, ya, it's better.

All I know is that yesterday in my TS-5 I was isolated with 585 hp and a repair kit vs a full health Skorp G driven by a player with a PR rating 2k higher than mine and 15k more battles played. He got off the first shot. One of us drove away with 585 hp, 3 less HE rounds and a used repair kit, the other one was not so lucky.

Such heartwarming tales!  Especially the part about the guy having 15k more battles.  I love players with less of a life than I have!

I play the TS-5, the WZ-120-1-FT and the KanPanz105. They each have a niche where they can be overwhelmingly good. Those that understand that niche and manage it well will usually seem OP. Not sure that isn't the same for most tanks.

ah.

 

Well, I had fun with an E-25 that thought he could get around me.  Shot him in the face, killed his driver, he got past me, hit a rock... struggled.  Decided he needed to run... Gun finally came around Blapped him a second time, killed the engine... chased him around a rock...

...

and got surrounded by his team (b/c I was the last player alive)

Say that almost anywhere in Belorus, and consider yourself lucky to get medivacked out of the country. There a bit touchy about being implied to be Russias pet.

That Belarus was part of the Soviet Union?  Hence Soviet bias.  History, it's a thing. Apparently learning about it is not.

It’s not OP? Is that why so many were played in FL? A mode where very few casemates are played? But we saw scores of these things?

It’s OP at tier, the players have voted by their choice in FL.

Denying the facts in front of your face is silly.

Regardless of whether it's OP or not, you're primarily seeing so many in Frontline because it's a brand new tank, and a Premium at that, so everyone wants to play it.  You'd still see a lot in Frontline, even if it was bad.

I don't think it's OP; good, but not OP. It has good DPM and decent pen but it has weak spots that are easy to hit and its got a slow traverse with no turret. IF you sit in front of it instead of flanking (or having your team flank) or hitting its weak spots then don't be surprised when you end up back in the garage.

 

You're seeing them in FL because they're the new shiny and the play style you need to use for them isn't that complicated: keep enemy in front of you and try to hide your weak spots. They are easily countered by arty or flanking.
