To Me this is WG slapping 80% ish of the player base in the face.............why?

430U was one of the only OPish tanks you could get that was not a reward tank................are they nerfing 907? FV95? 279e.............nope just the comon player base tank 

R 430U's even used in CW or ranked, not really most good clans use other cause there are better reward tanks to use

Is it OP ......sure but anyone can put in the time and get it..............the other not getting nerfed OP tanks...........well average player base, there outta reach for them

Generally, if you don't have the 907, the 140 is preferred over the 430U.

The 430U will be better in the hands of so many of the playerbase than the 140 will, though.

 

I'm not watching this yet, what are the nerfs?

Absolutely appropriate and well past time.

Haven't watched it yet. I think it's good they nerf it, but in the right ways. Imo it just needs the the armour nerfed a bit. The gun handling is pretty terrible as is, s ok I hope they didnt mess with that.

According to said video, it will be enough to make most re-think their positions on these 4.  They are so long overdue, it's not funny.  T-62A may find a new home in many garages, again.

I wonder why they didn't nerf the Pantera? Wink, wink...

 

 

I guess that would have made things too obvious.:D

 

 

So basically the 430's won't be able to snap shot as well and you might have a chance to pen their cupolas. Not really sure they are nerfs or more just pacifiers.

Okay for the Progetto and Standard B changes, they might be overboard. Let's see when testing comes around, but losing the ability to mount a gun rammer is definitely big.

The 430 loses a bit of gun handling, not much. The 430U loses a little gun handling and the cupola areas are nerfed down to 278 and 274mm thickness - still requiring premium rounds from most guns to pen, so not terrible.

Let's be honest, the objects barely got touched. They only are doing this to SAY they nerfed them. The Italians on the other hand are getting shafted beyond belief. The progetto 65 I would say is a top 3 medium at teir 10, the gun is really good, so if they want to nerf the accuracy a bit then fine, but the standard b, I just dont get. The gun handling and dpm are already very limiting in alot of circumstances, these nerfs will destroy it plain and simple. Meanwhile the ebrs run wild.

I wasted quite a bit of free XP for the Italian meds already at least I know not to waste anymore.I know the nerfs are small on the 430U but the gun handling is trash as it is so I may just go with the 277.Thanks for the post OP I don't pay attention to patch notes news etc.

Another reason to not bother to grind tech tree tanks in the game. Had way to many changed after working thru the time and credits. They have every reason to make changes they can think of however poor development and poor testing results in players getting really tired of the same old show in regards to this.

Ah good, the 121 will now be slightly less of a joke compared to the 430U.

I sold the 430U and bought a 140, zero regrets.

I take it you've never played an MMO before?

Boo hoo, 430U goes from having trick cupolas that are as strong or stronger than the turret front, to cupolas that you have to get lucky with T10 TDs or massive HEAT pen to defeat.

Honestly the 430U nerfs are a joke, you still need gold for the so called "weakspot".

 

Apparently RU cries a lot about the Progetto, that's why it's getting destroyed, I gave it a shot on the CT and the clip loading time is just too long, so you need to put a lot of thought into when you should fire more than one shell instead of lolclipping whatever comes in front of you, but maybe someone who has the tank may enlighten us in how it is OP other than having one handing their rear end to some RU clan leader.

They always overnerf before testing.  I expect that the Italian mediums will be readjusted again once the first round of testing is complete.  I am ticked that they are touching my Italian tanks though, I hope they ease up on them because speed + gun are all they have going for them.  If they are worried about burst potential there are less annoying things you can do to the tank than screw it's accuracy.

IMO the nerf to the 430U's gun handling is a much bigger deal than the armor nerf. Going from .12 to .16 gun bloom while moving is... actually kind of a big deal.
