s-51 just got reaper, master gunner , and kamikaze
and we lost
Finally got a computer I could play on without terrible lag. Moving up the german and russian tank trees now. Tier 4 panzer and T28 along with T18 with 75mm howitzer and the next one up with the incredibly slow to load 105mm.
Funny thing; Skidmarx (KV-1S), papa (M36, drunk), and me (Tetrarch, drunk) in a platoon. The goal was to kill a Tiger with a Tetrarch, to no avail. Nonetheless, out of ~5 matches shooting nothing but premium shells, I made a profit overall and even managed to kill a T-50-2.
Rough run down.....
Chassis traverse speed increased from 45°/sec to 46°/sec
Turret traverse speed increased from 45°/sec to 46°/sec
Reduced gun dispersion during vehicle rotation by 5%
Reduced ground resistance by 10%
Increased engine repair cost by 22%
Hull weight changed from 15,400 kg to 16,478 kg
Turret armor increased from 104mm to 130mm
Hull side armor decreased from 65mm to 60mm
Reload time increased from 8.0 seconds to 8.7 seconds
Aim time increased from 2.86 seconds to 2.9 seconds
Increased damage value of AP ammo from 230 to 250 hit points
Increased penetration of AP ammo from 175mm to 181mm
Increased damage value of gold AP ammo from 230 to 250 hit points
Increased penetration of gold AP ammo from 235mm to 241mm
That was a hoot. And not a hindrance to the team either.
Last night I ran down a killed both an ELC and a T-50-2 in a Westfield assault.....with my Stug! They both didn't realize how fast a Stug can pivot.
Does anyone think these changes were needed?
No.. and I would have much rather seen the Type 59 change 20% the OTHER way.
buff'ing an already badass tank that people have no way to currently acquire is pretty frustrating for us without.
It is all to make the new market happy....China.
I have a feeling that the chinese tree will be insane.....and the funny part is that they are transplant tanks anyway....early ones from western europe....later tanks are all soviet knock-off's. They type 59 is a T-54A....the specs should be the same...but nope....but remember this is a "Game"
Not only that - but the T-54 is a Teir 9 tank - so by having the Type59 that isn't available - you get a T9 tank in T8.
Tons of fun.
I believe we went 3-2 in those battles.
I did make a point of messaging our team that we "had a plan" at the start of each battle. I think it helped since no one complained. I neglected to tell them that the plan was to kill a Tiger with a Tetrarc and we weren't worried about much else..
I haven't looked into any other tanks for historical accuracy, but a brief glimpse for Type59 information shows a lot of....artistic license.
If it was historical accuracy, only 29% of the russian tanks would be mobile at the start of the battle due to mechanical breakdowns. 70% of the German ones would be out of gas. The French ones would come with Italian crews and the Americans would have 4 support tanks following every battle tank
most of my tanks suffer severe mechanical failure every battle
Use the target erase mod
It should be a carbon copy of the T54...minus just a tad.....but it is a game not a sim....and there is a huge difference in just that.
But if you read a little on the REAL history of the type.
I know at least one person that quit playing because he's a tank nut and couldn't stand the inaccuracies.
Moderate accuracy is fine with me. I'd rather have a fun game than a accurate simulator.
OConnor, here is your reminder.
After spending a few graveyard shifts surfing this thread, is there still a ADV clan? If so, what should I be aiming for to be able to join in the fray?
Currently I have a T49 that I am almost fully upgraded, and am working on the pos Priest right now (hoping it gets better when upgraded though I do like the damage it will do) also I am on the long grind for German mediums and heavies.
the Priest convinced me how good German arty was. up to gwpanther anyway. couldnt stomach the tiger and sold it
I had a huge problem with it at the start.....and still do with arty...duh....it really is world of armor....the tanks support the arty in this game....but eh, it gives me something to do when I don't feel like anything else.
