Who is actually in charge of balancing? Because....they are TERRIBLE AT IT.,

 

The 121 is not a bad tank because of its gun handling. Its got a great 122mm gun...ITs bad because it has no gun depression bad hull armor AND bad turret armor....

 

The wz120 is not bad because of the gun handling....its bad because it has 3 degrees of gun depression....Why is it so hard to figure this out?

I'm certainly not going to complain if the proposed changes to the Type59 go into effect.

I don't think that every tank needs to be a high gun depression hulldown tank.  IMO, the buff are pretty good, because the gun handling is really the biggest issue for Chinese tanks.  If anything, I would ask for even more gun handling buffs.

"The feedback we’ve been receiving indicates that you’re enjoying Field Modification, but there are still some details of this new feature that could be improved. We've addressed your concerns with a number of quality-of-life improvements."

 

I must of missed that survey, I haven't heard of anyone liking the Field Modifications

I remember when the Type 59 was the tier 8 premium, people would have been up in arms about it getting any buffs now look where we are.

I drove these when they originally added them on the test server. ON THE TEST SERVER with the original stats I was autoaim 360 no scope slapping people across the map. the 121 has never had a big issue with gun handling, and im not asking for 9 degrees or something silly. 6 degrees and some usable turret armor would do wonders.

 

As the tank currently is, its a worse leopard, a bad 113, and and an even worse 430U

5 degrees of gun depression isnt unusuable on the 121... its about the bare minimum for usable gun depression in this game. The gun depression is fine, but yes the 122's gun handling is pretty bad, especially that aim time... and knocking off 0.2 seconds off of it is pretty good, and giving it the same turret traverse dispersion as the 907 is also pretty good, makes the arrmo less of an issue because you can snap shot better.

 

EDIT: The WZ-120 absolutely needs more gun depression though... -3 is actively unusable.

Now just make it so we can choose what we want for our boosted equipment slot, and not just limited to the 2 that are pre-selected. I understand not having double firepower or survivability, etc. But come on, the ones that are given for arty are completely useless. Survivability and scouting...LIKE BRUH.
At least make it scouting and mobility, not survivability.

What i found from playing is is in situations where you wanted to TRY to use your limited turret armor, it was akward enough to where you had to show hull armor...then you got smacked. Then again i cannot make takes like the 140 or 62a work at all either so perhaps its just a me Issue. 

 

When I CAN bring the gun to bear however, gun handling hardly ever failed me. 

 

and if i want a "paper sniper" I might as well just drive a leopard and have a God teir gun already.

The Type 59 could be given 30% more armor and have its accuracy buffed to 0.30, and still not compete with the current meta mediums.

I still haven't bought the 121. Got it unlocked and the level-4 3D style on it too.

I don't believe every tank needs really good gun depression. As long as the gun handling, dispersion and soft stats on it make up for the poor depression it's stuck with.

They have buffed the Type 59; Cool! Let's check it out!

Log on, select Type 59, click on Battle. Wait. 20 players in queue. Ok. 25 players in queue. OK. 30 players in queue. OK. Timed out at 5 minutes. Bummer.

Try again. 25 players in queue. Looks good. 30 players in queue; great! Timed out. Sigh...

Try again. 30 players in queue. Good. 35 players in queue; ok. Timed out again.

Wasted 15 minutes on nothing; exit game. Find something better to do.

Is the Common Test over?  I could not see an end date in that article.  I was hoping to test drive a few more Tier X tanks.  

 

The ping is just awful for NA.  So many Russian players in EBR105's just nuking NA players that have no hope of targeting them when the ping spikes form 140ms to well over 200ms.  One game had 4 lights played by Russian players.  My team had more NA players.  Poor NA players didn't have a prayer...
