The fate of German tanks...

We asked SerB what is the fate of German tanks going to be for you :)

"Well...."


"We're gonna start nerfing them...."



"....and then we'll nerf them to the ground!"

  4. I heard that due to detoriating german armor plates late in the war, all post 1944 tanks is gonna have they armor value reduced by 20%, according to Kubinka tests, after several 122mm hits 200mm plates were penetrated, shattered and bent even though they werent supposed to be penetraded

    1. do you really trust the russian propaganda shit...

      they are simply big liars as you can see ingame

    2. Simply stating facts, you can be in denial, but the tests showed it. Like Tiger 2, and later tanks should have lower armor. I can't even damage a Tiger 2 or Ferdinand with my IS D25T, but those test clearly showed they were destroyed

      /Sergej

    3. That was due to the lack of molybdenum. They used some other stuff to harden their armor plates instead which made it hard but fracturable. Killed a lot of King Tiger crews without penetrating the armor.

    4. Less good then early German armor still better/as good as sowjet/allied armor.
      Simply a fact.

      Delete
    5. "Simply a fact"?
      :|
      And the Moon is round, therefore your argument is invalid.

      Plus something that mission-kills the tank via crew death by spalling even when the shell doesn't punch through doesn't quite meet my criteria for good armour. But I guess fanbois do things differently.

    2. @ SerB
      Nope, Löwe is your one german heavy that sucks (48,39%).
      Your TigerP is really badass(63,1%) and your VK4502AusfB isnt bad either (59,68%).
      I think a nerf for VK4502AusfB and TigerP should be appropriate. In the same time a 10HP buff for the Löwe should do the trick.

      i hope WG will fire SerB and Storm so we can get a proper balance... but this will never happen

    2. What do you mean with "are better"?
      Modern RUS tanks are at least on par with german armor in the MBT compartment and MUCH better regarding IFV or AA.

      Delete
    3. And the Germans have complexes because no German is good enough to create a game as successful as WoT, also some of them perform so badly in this game that they have to look at RUSSIAN BIAS to justify their lack of skill.

      Delete
    4. "better" - comments like that ignore all historical evidence with a blanket statement rooted in nothing.

      USSR beat the Germans, both forced each other to innovate and depending which year of the war you're talking about each side had a "better" tank.

    6. I doubt that modern Russian MBTs are on paar with any modern western MBT, but saying about historical period 1943-1960 the only nation had tanks wich could compete with USSR's vehicles was USA. And it was a big question, whould American tanks win...

      Delete
    7. You guys are full of shit propaganda...just look at some historical statistics there were single german tanks that destroyed dozens of russian or american tanks...take the case of wittman for example , and there were many more. The allies won because of their numbers and their resources advantage.( And maybe because hitler's bad decisions ) Still...numbers show that german tanks outperformed other nations tanks. Stop listening to shit nowadays propaganda, you will become full idiots if you do so.

      Delete
    8. Additionally, all those kills were because they had 100% crew with 6 skills/perks while the Allies had 50-75% crew. Not just because of how good the tanks were.

      Delete
    9. @silviu geo

      Good job shooting yourself in the foot by quoting Wittman as a good tanker since most of his accomplishments are SS tier propaganda. And there were plenty of cases were allied tanks took out large numbers of "superior" german tanks, Pegov ring a bell?

      Also do realize that allies lost plenty of tanks to other things than german tanks. If we look simply into the number of tanks, Finland had a tank kdr of 100 to 1 in the Winter war. Joke is that Finland had around 30 tanks(Vickers and FT-17) and russian lost theirs to poor terrain, training and infantry AT weapons. Same thing with Germany versus allies.

      And besides, it was the Pz.IV and Stugs that did most of the work, with the big cats causing most damage in the spare parts department. Not saying that Tigers for example didn't wreck stuff on occasion, but they are given way too much credit.

    10. The Heavy Tiger Battalions were the deadliest German Forces on the battlefield, so there cant be given enough credit for their battle performance.

      Germans had several Tiger Battalions called Schwere Panzerabteilungen. They were clearly the Kings on the battlefield. They had a combat kill/loss ratio 12:1 above all of them. The highest ratio was 50:1 from SS-Abteilung 103.

      So they are far from being a sidenote. They were the best there was.

      Delete
    11. That's not very difficult when at the time nobody carries enough gun to kill you. But by that selfsame token the Char B1, Matilda Senior and KV-1 were ALSO "the best there was" since the German tanks basically couldn't do Jack Shit to them with their dinky early-war guns.

      I believe this thing you're doing here is known as "double standards" in agrarian societies. Some experts disagree and argue it's "fanboi tunnel vision" instead.

      Delete
    12. Wittman was a good tanker, but also had a great crew. However, he was also full of himself, believing to be invincible. That was what probably cost him his life.

      German (or any other nations for that matter) heavy tank battalions were shock troops, a spearhead to perform breakthroughs.

      German ones had the most impressive battle record of them all, by far. However, they were a couple of hundred tanks in a war where there were tens of thousands of enemy tanks. They were simply too few in numbers and battlefield was too large, for them to achieve anything but local superiority.

    13. I didnt say other nations had not better tanks before that in WW2, but its just false to say "the cats caused most damage in the spare parts department", when the tigers alone in fact destroyed ~10k tanks in like 2 years.

      They didnt "wreck stuff on occasion", they wrecked almost everything they met. And thats exactly, why they achieved legend status.

    14. I have to transport 20 workers from city A to city B. Which cars are better for this task: 4 Toyota Prius or 10 Lamborghini Gallardo?

      U have to understand: the MAIN task for tanks is to breakthrough the lines and make damage behind the enemy lines. Destroying enemy tanks is just one additional task. German tanks are indeed the best tanks for this !one! !additional! task.

      Sovjets won the war on the Ostfront, because they had best tanks for their doctrine. Germans lost, because they had shitty tanks for their doctrine. Easy, huh?

      Delete
    15. I think you dont understand a thing.

      German Tiger battalions were never used appropriate for their doctrine until February 1945 in Operation Südwind.

      The new Panzerwaffe was so badly needed on the front, that they were split up and used contrary to their doctrine mostly as infantry support or defensive unit.

      Delete
    16. Now you're just being unfair. The Tiger was just fine for the whole raison d'étre of heavy tanks, ie. spearheading important offensives. Like every other member of the class it was never meant to be produced or employed in very large numbers but rather to serve as a "special reserve" for priority operations - the gruntwork was as always up to the far cheaper ergo more numerous as well as more versatile medium tanks.

      But seeing as how not too long after it entered service the Germans were on a fighting retreat on all fronts it duly tended to mostly fight as a defensive strongpoint. Ironically enough it was probably better at that than in its doctrinal primary mission since that allowed it to better play on its strenghts...

      Delete
    17. True, it seems they were better in the role they got in the end, then what they were build for.

    5. Then again the Russian national budget basically sinks or swims according to the vagaries of oil and gas world-market prices, which in essence means the national economy is structurally pretty close to a Third World raw-material exporter.

      Dunno why the Russian economy is supposed to be in any way topical given that the last I checked WG was based in Belarus instead, and I'd be very surprised if they hadn't long ago parked all of their jewgolds they could into offshore tax havens like any sensible modern business anyway...

  21. When in comes to nerf/buff of the tank: only winrate on it is taken into account?

    Lets say: all good players play Lowe - so its winrate gets up - so it will get nerfed. and on the other hand: all says that RUS tanks are OP - so every newbee trys to get IS-7 .. and plays a shit with it so global statistic shows IS-7 winrate is below average - we need to buff it

    Is it how it goes ?

    1. Perhaps, but most of good players have better prem tanks then Lowe, which is in my opinion played mostly by new players who don't understand tanks stats yet.

    2. U are wrong, there is no better prem tanks them lowe, just similar, what makes you choose a prem tank is the way you play and the nation you are into.

      Delete
    3. Well, still prem tanks have different winratios. Sure, one can play well with every tank, but that does not mean all the tanks are perfectly balanced. And Typ 59 + KV 5 are best prem tanks game-wise (not specific-player-stats wise), so they have to remove them from in-game shop.

      Delete
    4. Winratio from EU server last 2 weeks:
      Lowe - 48.5
      Is 6 - 49.83
      KV5 - 51.26
      8.8 JagdTiger - 46.84
      T34 - 49.66
      T26E4 - 48.89
