  1. Is it just me or the turret armor from 250 to 270 is ….. a complete joke??? Years waiting for this changes? Aiming time increased as well? Accurancy is better… SURE! But this is a close quarters combat tank! Not a sniper! Are they trying to make changes just to keep the community shut? WTF!

  2. I thought the E100’s turret would receive a much more consequent buff. Didn’t the picture read 311mm for the turret’S frontal plate. Not that this would make that much difference against the 340mm gold pen of most Soviet heavies …

  3. Lol, are you people mad? E-100 gets better 128mm and turrret buff is actually huge, you can now bounce gold if you angle. Just bounce gold and spam HE at russian tanks and super conqs like a caveman, it’s great.

    1. Pretty sure people are mainly angry that the soviet tanks are getting their dispersion buffed, across 8 tanks, but the best wg could do is buff the 128 which, lets face it, rarely anyone uses outside of grinding the 150. But the armour, looks ok, hopefully it works well against HEAT but id prefer the maus turret just because memes and maus turret.

  4. It puts the turret armor at about the same effective armor thickness as the HEAT shell penetration for most tier 10 mediums. Now they’ll have trouble going through the turret face even when its facing head on, let alone when it angled.

  5. well its 2 cannons for the russians getting adjusted 1 for 2 tanks, 1 for your 8 tanks and that cannon is only top cannon for the TIER 7 IS so who cares?

  6. They don’t want to change the tanks play style they just want to make it better at it’s current play style and currently a big part of the E-100 is angling the turret which with this buff you’ll still need to do to deal with high pen prem ammo but it will be more constance with stopping those rounds when angled now.

  7. The reason they’re changing the 128mm so much is so that it becomes a valid option for those who would prefer DPM over Alpha damage.

  8. Why is the 122mm D-25T (and Russian tanks fielding it) receiving such huge buff to “turret rotation dispersion” to 0.10? A 0.12<>0.14 for the D-25T would more then sufficient.

    IMO the Russian 122mm guns in the game should NOT have ‘turret dispersion’ values that equals or betters a same tier medium gun. Like the 100mm.
    The ‘turret dispersion’ values on some high caliber Russian guns could use a slightly global nerf.

  9. Well DPM works, however I always use the 150 because I don’t want to face the enemy, rather angle and make those single shots do tons of alpha.

  10. Mate it gets the roof weakspot, the turret ring weakspot removed. And if you angle the front you can bounce like 340mm….If it’s hulldown with someone with half brain working, it’s a monster.
