    1. Is this also a camo factor nerf, or only a visual change?

    1. this change is actually "historical", because the turret was put more to the front.
      the 8.6 model is closer to the blueprint than the 8.5 model

      Delete
    2. yeah... historical = germans-nerf, soviet-buff

    3. So they should give it the E100 the 15cm L63 and the 17cm L53
      because of "historical" reasons.

    4. You know, you can see someone is a retard by how they think an assault gun means a turreted tank.

    5. I think we've been over this many times in this blog...

    6. If you want true historical then the turret should be 200/80/150.

      Delete
    7. yes you moron, and facing IS3's instead of T10 tanks, because E100's would have been put into production by almost the same time as the IS3 was, if they still could have done it.

      Delete
    8. And later it would have met the IS-7 and shat bricks.

      Delete
    9. @Firat Susan: good luck trying to sqeeze the 15cm L/63 and the 17cm in the E-100's turret, because they wouldn't fit. The 17cm version is what we call the JagdE-100 in-game.

    10. And you guys still belive that there's no russian bias.

    1. Unless they messed around with the verts of a mesh, the UV's would not have changed, even if they moved parts of the models, so if WG did it properly, you shouldn't need to retexture them

      Delete
    2. still downloading the TS client for verification.

    3. "if WG did it properly"

      Trying...not...to...laugh...

    4. I've been going through the changed models / new models fixing and making news skins. E-100 is all good, i couldn't spot any reason to rework the skin for it, VK Leo needs the rework tho, it got messed up pretty bad. Same goes for IS, PzII, T29, ( those 2 had 2 sheets of texture, got converted into one single sheet, no model change ) old SU85B and SU18 skins have problems on the new mantlet, missing texture for it, and even AMX 50B has a few spots that need fixing on turret base side and on the ufp.

  11. Wow! These model change posts are the best! (2nd only to the translation). Thank you people in the US forums and thank you SS..

    I always wondered each time there is a "model changes" (minor or major) on the patch notes but no way to see the difference between the old and new model. God, this helps a lot.. :)

  12. I love the fact that the e100 turret is supposedly historical Yet the Driver and radio man crew hatches wouldn't be able to open and swing out of the way with the turret there

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. on the Leclerc, the driver cannot get out of his hatch if you turn the turret 45-90 degrees either side

    2. Entire hull is out of proportion, it is clear as day if you have a tiger II and jt in your garage.
