And they still slap those ridiculously enormous cupolas on them; so no matter how good the turrets may look on paper, they'll still probably suck in combat.

 

Hell, the tier 9 has two of em, lol.

Cool... I guess the T8 will be one of the new tanks that will appear in this year's Xmas Loot Boxes, and the whole new heavy line will hit with the first major update of the New Year, as usual... They look cool; I'm sure I'll have enough blueprints to ease the grind to T10.

All WG does now is make BAD choices and this is another one. 

 

This ARCADE game is based on WWII tanks that fought in REAL combat or were designed in that ERA, but now WG has made the game more and more and more UNREALISTIC with FANTASY tanks some of which are listed below: 

 

1.  Japanese "paper" Heavies that would not even be able to move in real life and look like NAVAL SHIPS.   

2.  Russian PIKE NOSE tanks that were a FAILED design, but emphasized by WG (Russia dropped the design and no other nation adopted the pike nose design). 

3.  The 279E which is a ridiculously looking tank with 4 tracks that was another FAILED design and was never accepted into service nor was the 4-track design adopted by any other nation. 

4.  The 4005 or TRASH BARN which was another failed design.

5.  The WAFFLES which are unrealistic with no protection from aircraft or small arms fire.

6.  Russian V-hulled design that were never put into production by the Russians, failed design.

 

I can go on and on and on, but I am busy ATM.  Please add to this list. 

 

 

You say arcade game based on WWII tanks that fought in REAL combat or were designed in that ERA...

 

Wargaming says this is what the game is: World of Tanks is a massively multiplayer online game featuring combat vehicles from the mid-20th century.  Source:  https://worldoftanks.com/en/content/guide/newcomers-guide/

 

So you'll see that it isn't just WWII tanks.  T1 Cunningham starts the American tech tree line and was from the 1920s and early 30s.  It isn't about just tanks, hence the term "combat vehicles".   And it isn't about those vehicles that fought in REAL combat or were designed in that ERA.  Again, witness the T1 Cunningham just as a minimal example.

30% sounds too low. I mean, look at the disaster of light tanks that can't be tracked.

It does sound low but if you do both tracks it stacks to 60%. I'd think just giving it a flat out 50% with one or both would be more reasonable. Still a strong characteristic in a game where getting tracked is often a death sentence.

What I found funny was that the secondary track allows you to get to cover where you can repair the regular track........that you just left behind sitting in the open.

Ya, a variation of it should be retroactively applied to the AE Phase 1, since that’s the whole point of the split-track design.
