WG's giving the FV4005 the arty treatment -- don't address the actual issue but instead make it more and more miserable/frustrating to play so the problem is less noticeable (because people aren't playing it as much because it sucks).

 

Seems like they will succeed in that regard.

I dont think a nerf was necessary at all. The introduction of EBR 105s acted as a counterbalance to glass tanks, making it more likely they will be spotted and/or circled on open maps. Ive made lunch meat of 4005s and grilles frequently with the 500 alpha EBR HE.

I sold my fv4005 today, no sense in keeping it as it went back to being the s**t barn again and my deathstar has better stats all around plus three times the armour. Absolutely no reason for the nerf, people act like every time you score a hit you erase somebody from the map,  they've been watching too many YouTube videos of unicorns hand-picking their best games playing against Muppets.

Typical WG, not addressing the actual issues..

I am completely okay witht he Alpha put out by the FV4005 because:

A. HESH doesnt have great penetration so you must aim for a weak part on the tank to not do a 1/3 of AP damage.
B. Most heavy tanks who were complaining the most, when properly played, will never take more than 500 damage from a single shot.
C. 30 second reload
D. NO ARMOR. I mean every HE round in any tier can pen it's turret. ALL OF THEM.
E. If you're dumb enough to see there is an enemy 4005 in the game and not take intelligent cover, I'm sorry, but I am going to kill you.

I was fine with everything, the accuracy drop, the turret and hull traverse, everything.

WHY TAKE MY REVERSE SPEED (THE ONLY REASON I LIVE)? I got this tank 5 days ago, not reading about the patch until release day because I didnt figure Wargaming to completely [edited]a tank, just to nerf it. I played arty for 5 years and stopped because we don't earn XP anymore to come to a tank I dreamed of playing for 3 years but had a crap computer so I couldn't. Now I can, AND THEY KILL IT. Why? Just give me my reverse speed back. PLEASE.

I said the same thing on another thread and got near flamed. Conway will be better than its higher tier counterpart. GJ WG, way to cater to the few dozen YouTube videos that make it look OP. 

The crapBarn is just a straight up can’t do anything tank, thanks WG for another balanced approach...

 

Its the same thing with the Badger VS the Tortoise.

 

The only British tier 10 td worth anything was the 215B. Ive sold the badger twice in an attempt to make it work. It does NOT, and is only good for farming bad players who can somehow miss your nearly impossible to hide lower plate.

 

I'm literally only grinding the turreted line for the Conway.

You spelled Foch 155/B wrong. LOL

Bottom line, many nations tank grinds end at tier IX, many, but not all. As for Russian grinds, it goes from tier IX, skips X and heads straight to tier XI. That’s my takeaway from all this.

Unlocked before the announcement of the nerf, and will remain as it is. Glad that I could save 6M.

Wargaming killed this tank period, made a garbage tank even worse but the ts5 is untouched.

I haven't played in a while since I got burnt out and have been taking a break, but I still check the news and updates to the game and wow, when I read about this nerf I just shook my head. The 4005 was such a fun vehicle and I always took mine out when I was having a bad time just so I could shoot a really big shell at things for the small chance at getting a full damage pen. Now it's just useless trash and I'll be selling it. :/ Thanks WG, ruined another fun vehicle and still leaving crap like the 430U untouched. :rolleyes:

its less toxic at tier 10 than it is at tier 5 where it happens far more to far less experienced players. Sometimes at tier 3

you forgot the wider turret range on the 1.41 version 4005. +/- 90 instead of the old +/- 45. reverse speed to 8kph made me mad the most.

 

I played the old Conway when it had only the tortoise's gun. It was brutal to the enemy then. Boomstick not as much.
