  1. Jow, when are they going to buff all the obsolete and completely powercreeped CW reward tanks like the Chieftain/T95, T95E6, M60, Kv4 Kres etc?

    1. Those tanks are probably so low on their priority list as to them not caring. WG’s priority is doing everything possible to content for new and mid game players. These are the money generators that will be spending money on premium time/tanks to grind up a line. Reward tanks for players that don’t need to spend money anymore and are a low percentage of the player base anyways are not a priority.

      1. lol yeah sure… have you even taken the slightest look at the WoT community? avg IQ in the mid double figures, zero clue about basic game mechanics but you want the multi-billion company to listen to them…you’re an idiot and totally indicative of teh problem.

    2. Who knows. 59 patton got his gun buffed last patch. So I’m kinda expecting the T95E2 to get the same. Tho, there is still at least 1 or 2 more balance focus patch. So who knows. IS-6 is still not buffed either. And balance focus lasts until March.

    2. My badger gets raped in the 250mm plates head on under the dual view ports by more or less every tier X with normal ammo. But if you are hulldown using the max gun depression, then sure. But other then that, it’s worse then even the old tortoise.
