More nerfs. Great.
Comparing tier 4 Luch to old Tier 4 Leo, I just hope WG has enough sense and gives Luch normal MM instead of Leo's scout MMM.
Luchs has +3 turret traverse speed, not -3
Why nerf them at all if they're already being pushed up a tier and forced to face more difficult tanks? These are already some of the worst scouts in the game.
They have same MM, or better
While I'm a bit sour about the changes, especially after certain SerB's statement that "they we're already balanced with higher tiers in mind", I can see that while speed and acceleration (the second one is seriously wtf moment) nerf will hurt, the view range buff will create an awesome passive scout. Colour me intrigued.
Don't both of these get the new, "high pen" 30mm autocannon as well? If so that gives both tanks actually legitimately good firepower for their tiers, which both tanks lacked horribly before.
Have you tried playing it on test server? That thing's great on the paper, it's absolutely useless though.
That extra 10mm of rear armour is going to make all the difference :(
95mm of pen for an auto cannon is pretty sweet, and the luchs turret weighs 500kg less
Will MM stay the same? I Heard VK2801 no longer enters battletiers 11 and 12.
MM for VK2801 gets cut indeed. Check the MM table for T6 lights
MM for tier 6 lite Tank is: Tier 6 till 11!!!!!!!!!!!!http://wiki.worldoftanks.com/images/a/a0/Matchmaking_Chart.pngLOL Wargaming, VK2801 comming now not only tier 12 battles.Wargaming please put your a brain before it does anything.
Beautiful castration of german tanks...
SerB states that apart from the Luchs, the other vehicles being lifted up one tier didn't really have to be rebalanced, as they were balanced around tier 5 and 6 previously already (they were balanced one tier higher)confirmed: Leopard and VK2801 won't get buffed (SS: apart from the HP? unclear) when they are pushed one tier higher, nothing will change for themRussians promises...
What do you want to say?
They promises: nothing will change for themBut they change
Ah right. But all in all it looks more or less like a small buff for me. Except the lower leo high speed, but maybe it won't lose as much speed in turns? Has to be verified...
Where You see buff? I played on test... there is no 10.5 and speed is nightmare... This tank will be crap after new patch
No more reason to play German lights. Who wants to bet that if they move Russian scouts one tier up it won't involve a nerf which will be more important than all the small buffs?
Great. Oh and fyi, E-50 and E-50m got nerfed too. They have no frontal gun depression anymore. Don't wanna say Russian Bias, but it really starts to stink like it.
they removed the E-50/M depression nerf after people called them out on it, but they are dead set on ruining my german scouts.
