Leo looks a bit better, not sure about the STB, 430 needed to be nerfed so thats good, I think people will like that they nerfed the 430's but I think nerfing the 430U's armor might have been better as opposed to the gun stats.

STB-1 is harder and harder to find in matches now days, due the better tanks option that we can have, such as Leopard 1 and T62A, OBJ 140. Now with this nerf..STB-1 will become a rare tank to be spoted in matches.

I do not have one,,, I do not care....  lol     we all want change,,,, we want this changed we want that changed..  when we get change we do not want it...lol      

 

I look at tank stat change as a plus..  I kinda got a new tank for free..  good grief... I have 161 tanks all with crews( lousily trained )  I am sure every player who ever played this game, has more then a dozen, way more...  if this change is going to outright kill this tank and make it completely useless... then play one of the other ones you have...

 

WG does not make stat changes for the fun of it..  they have lots of other stuff to do..   a change to the tank is made when it is not performing the way intended..  that is still a good thing right.... perhaps a certain tank in the right hands is unstoppable... maybe the masses won't play a tank because it is a one shot or can not pen but one other tank in the tier..   change is needed,, thank goodness WOT has the common sense to make the change...  good job..

I've been saying for a long time.  To fix the STB1.  Give it the proper suspension, and tighten it's gun. That's all you had to do.  But they had to go and throw in nerfs too.

LOL WUT?? 430u not common in random battles?

 

it still has better dispersion than a leopard while moving hull and turret?? wth are they smoking. 

 

With they leopard all they needed to do was make the gun handling not trash when the tank was moving any part of itself.

I'm glad for the Leopard 1 changes.  It has so needed this for the past 5 years or so...

Besides the Russian medium nerfs, what I like about this change is this one sentence referring to the Leopard changes:
"We also want to properly reconfigure the entire branch and check the effects of our changes on the researchable vehicles."

Does that mean the Indien-Panzer might get its desperately-needed buffs? If so... WOO-HOO!

 

I am still disappointed that they aren't buffing the T20 and Pershing though, in my opinion, they need some slight improvements.

The t20 and pershing are great tanks.  I loved my T20.

I think you've had too much WoT Koolaid.

 

Talk to me about the 268.4 upon release and the LONG [edited]time it took to FINALLY nerf the damn thing...

Personally I don’t like the change to leopard 1 and stb1. They are not overpowered tanks. Leopard 1 has a perfect position in the current version and does not even require a rebalance. STB1 sacrifices too many things (top speed, view range, shell velocity,

etc.)to get aiming time and gun handling buff. Apcr as special ammunition is really disappointing. 260ish mm apcr penetration as standard ammunition and 330mm heat penetration as special ammunition works just fine. Also I don’t think there is any point to load ap on leopard 1 after the rebalance, as special ammunition has better shell velocity and penetration, and similar ammunition mechanics. Lots of people fire special ammunition only when the combination is ap as standard and apcr as premium. Ap or apcr as standard and heat as special ammo is the best and the most balanced one.

They are buffing the STB's gun handling significantly, but the alpha and pen nerfs came out of nowhere. Not to mention the additional work that'll have to be done to the other tanks in its line if WG still insists on keeping it 'consistent'. Would have been so much easier to just give it the new hydro suspension and change nothing else.

 

30b is looking more practical and conventional, but once again the question is will they now have to redo its line to keep it consistent. If not, then why did they have to do all that other crap like butchering the 263 line in the name of tech tree consistency? 

 

Leo 1 deserves buffs, glad that its getting them. But I'm really annoyed that they're screwing with the alpha. DPM and dispersion buffs would have solved this problem on their own.

 

430u should be treated similarly as the 430. Its an over-armored, idiot-proof, cancerous tumor.

Also, the rebalance may influence my equipment loadout. It’s not fair that I need to spend gold and bonds to change my equipment to fit the changes.

The STB pen and shell nerfs just make it so it's still relegated to "not buy back" on my list.  I loved my STB-1 at first but it's just not competitive.  I'll play the new swediums instead.

I like what they are doing with the Leo. Ruskie meds could be nerfed more, they still have the armor and alpha which makes them strong. 

STB-1...uh what? These do not look like changes that make it "more competitive." Give it back the 390 alpha and then maybe it'll be okay.

The standard 390, and the pen/velocity.  Give that back and we're back to working order with the new suspension that prevents you from showing the ever known shot trap of your turret and hull.

They must really want to emphasize the suspension change, like the Swede meds. Not appealing to me. I'm really fine with the current STB (although it could use a few boosts).
