    1. Not very good, not very bad. I'd say balanced.
      Too bad the servers went down for some reason

    1. Yes we want new VK36.01H stats, OMG that tanks with new konisch is really a HT tier6, can't wait to play it !!!! Also premium ammo that finally does the difference! (for istance i play 3601 with 7,5L70)

      Delete
    2. The konisch is great. 158 DMG 167 PEN. More DPM with it than with 8.8 and 0.34 accu.

      Delete
    3. Correction:
      AP/APCR
      DMG 165

  4. I drive US Tanks so I'm not that concerned aboiut this release outher than that there will be even more VK0123 named tanks I can't tell apart!

    1. Its nice that you don't care. So could you have not said anything about them in the first place? Or did you do that to get replies? If so, you are successful.

    2. It was really just about the annoying German naming conventions, to be honest.

      Delete
    3. as opposed to all the TXX US tanks?

      Delete
    4. What's annoying with VK[weight in tons].[version number]?
      Example: VK28.01 means 28 tons tank, version 1. Usually the manufactorer gets added behind that, so that a Tiger is called Tiger (H), because it's made by Henschel or VK30.02 (DB) because of Daimler-benz.
      That's pretty clear, isn't it?

      Delete
    5. Bro, you realise, that a VK0123 would be the 23rd version of a vehicle weighting 1 tone? xD

      VK0123.... wouldn't that be a VW Beetle?

      Delete
    7. Yeah I need to get to grips with it. It's just a joke with some players I know eabout the time it takes to remember what a "PzKpfw 38H735 (f)" as opposed to a "PzKpfw S35 739 (f)" when you're in the middle of a battle!

      Delete
  5. that means VK36 cant link to VK3002DB anymore?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes. And the link from the DB to the Panther is also gone.

      Delete
    2. Yep, it all start from Panzer III to vk3001DB and back to vk3002DB

    3. Got mine researched already, "just in case" :3

  6. the aufklärungspanzer panther looks quite hilarious with that big hull and the tiny stock turret in contrast

    1. I wonder how the hell it was deemed competitive. I'm looking at T71 and ask myself "how?". It even has less View Range (meaning is worse as a scout) despite being bigger. Seriously, WTF?! The only good thing (for now) about that tank is that Koenisch finally got a buff.

      Delete
    2. Same feeling, aufklarungspanzer is rubbish. Not scout, not med, big like maus... Biggest fail of this patch.

      Delete
  7. What are the changes to VK3002DB. Did the old engine get replaced by the new engines, and do we have to research the engines again?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Top engine is the same, just a second one available. Other than that didn't notice any changes apart from the name change.

      Delete
    2. The top engine has 30 horse power less....a ninja nerf...

      Delete
    3. RoF of the L/70 at least went up, conversely - from ~10/13 to ~13/15 (first and second turrets respectively).
      The shorty 88 may have gotten something similar, but since it looks rather useless for the tier in any case I kinda ignored it. (Can't re-check as the client crashed on me when I tried to join a battle, and now I'm getting "server busy"...)

      Delete
  8. What's the point of the 20.01D? Statwise it is inferior to the Pz III in almost every aspect. And both lead only to the Pz III/IV. So, why should I play the 20.01?

    ReplyDelete
  9. Is the AFK Panther --> Idien Pz. research cost the same as VK3002DB --> Idien Pz. ?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Pretty sure not - the costs of changing the branh (like here: from light to med) was always higher than of just advancing one tier up in the branch.

      Delete
    2. But this isn't exactly changing branches because they both converge on the same tank with no other route to take.

      The WZ-120 cost the same to research from both the T-34-2 and the WZ-132 so maybe its the same here.

  10. Installing test now - gotta see if new tanks are good.

    1. I connected and only had to wait 800 player queue - about 1-2 minutes.
      Probably downloaded faster than russian themselves :D 2MB/S

    2. Eh...I've downloaded the .patch files much earlier and I was one of the first 200 players connected...
      Funny thing was that ai had to wait 3-5 mins to get in my first match with Indien-pz...

  12. it would be nice to see also prices in credits, so i know how much farming is before me

  13. Does the T-80 get scout matchmaking?

    ReplyDelete
  14. so the 9cm gun for Proto Leo has better DPM than the 105 gun? what kind of stupid shit is this?

    The 0cm gun stats look great too. Leo proto+9cm+gold ammo=T62A like gun stats minus lower damage.

    No point using the 105mm. I dont grind a fucking paper medium to have IS-4 rof.!!! FUCK YOU WG!! FUCK YOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

  16. Lol, it would be acceptable for Leo proto T9 to have 5 fucking RoF if it had some decent armor, but with that paper armor and that RoF it doesn't have any pros....LOL again at WG and their way of balance..

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. yes, lets give it same rof as E50 but 40mm more penetration, great idea, they should hire you to balance the tanks

      Delete
    2. Compare the armor on E50 and on proto and stop being smartass...tell me then why is everyone talking how 90mm from Indien panzer is better solution for proto than 105mm bcs the RoF is double....just shut up and don't act like you collect all of the worlds wisdom...

      Delete
  17. SS, what do you think about the Indien-Panzer? In my opinion, it is a slightly improved version of the Panther II, but (sadly) plays quite similar. I hoped for a brawler like the Pershing or T-44, but this tank lacks the mobility to do so.

    BTW: The armour is worse than you may think....

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The hull slope is good, but the vehicle is SLOW and the armor is broken by anything that doesn't aim on the strongest spots. Not bad, plays like Panther. Hull is very nimble.

      Delete
    2. Yes, the Indien-Panzer is good and balanced, but not a "different" German Medium like the Leopards. Also, behind the big gun mantle of the Indien-Panzer, there is no armour. So, any hull down tactics are obsolete. In short: if you don't want to go for the Leopard and already have a Panther II, there is nearly no reason to grind to this tank.

      Don't forget that the Indien-Panzer has a higher "Balance weight", which is as high as a Tier VIII Heavy, compared to the Panther II.

      Delete
    3. "Don't forget that the Indien-Panzer has a higher "Balance weight", which is as high as a Tier VIII Heavy, compared to the Panther II."

      How do you know that? Can you post a source of that info?

  18. Tested new mediums of Leo line:
    Indien-panzer - low cruise speed, yet decently armored. Gun is normal too.
    Prototype Leo - very fast for T9, gun is very good too. No armors, tried sidescraping - it doesnt work. Rely on speed.
    Leopard 1 - very agile. Very fast aiming gun, yet it feels like it lacks of RoF - already want to shoot but I see its still reloading (needs a buff big time).

    Overall - Indien is not the fastest but at least better than stupid T-43.
    Leo Prot - very good for its own tier.
    Leo 1 - fast moving, fast locking on targets, but lacks RoF.

  19. No new weapons/stat changes for the Vk3002DB? curses! T_T

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. DB 30.01 is now a better tank to play. Same agility, armour and gun, but one tier lower. 88 on 7 tier sucks, and schmalturm is too slow to rotate. 30.02 has no advantages. I will sell it as fast as I research indien.

      Delete
  20. The more I'm hearing the more I'm thinking I might want to just skip the Leopard line. Its not sounding like it will really be playable.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Though the E-100 now carries more shells with it's 15 cm gun..
    Aka 50 Shells instead of 28 Shells that is a plus I guess...

    ReplyDelete
  22. First impression based on the post (still DLing the test client ATM):
    - new!Konisch looks to be awesum stat-wise; not sure if I'll be able to tolerate the appearance on the VK36 Grossturm though (looks damn stupid) :/
    - Auklarungskugelbagelpanzer Panther looks very, very silly but we knew that already :P
    - the new Soviet lights are HNNNNNNNNNNNGGGGGGGGGG cute, as long as the T-80 doesn't get scout MM might buy one just because :3
    - the Leo looks scary...

    1. You can actually mount Konisch in the stock turret on VK36. no need for that fugly top bucket

      Delete
    2. Fair enough - but that means giving up the hitpoint boost. I'll give you that the rather faster rotation makes the stock turret more useful for brawling an' stuff though.

  23. Any info about sexton?
    i know it has 6 crew and 3 type of ammo: ap he and prem ap but its range?

  26. it is stupid that panther2/e50/e50m tanks are less agile and have worse guns than new line. probably also worse gun depression And easily flammable front transmission. I hope at least independent suspension update will give them great accuracy on the move. If not, old med line looks rather shitty in comparision to new

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hahaha... easily flammable front transmission on E50m? The whole Leopard is one fucking weakspot, have you even tried it on test before writting this?
      In my and many peoples opinion Leopard cant compete with better E50m.

  27. When you try to retrain crew to a new tank go to german heavy line and all the way at the bottom there is the VK7201 (K). On the russian medium line all the way at the bottom of the retrain list you will find Obj 907 and on the american medium line at the bottom of the retrain list the M60 will be found :D

  28. Anyone know the credit cost of the Indien-Panzer? All the screenshots I see show only the XP cost. I came up with 2,420,000 by the difference on SS's account, but maybe he bought some other stuff. Can anyone confirm?

    1. well it certainly will be between 2,4 and 2,6 mil.

      Id say the exact value isnt that important because the difference isnt that big, or is it just me...
