WoT Supertest – Tank Balance Changes

The most recent update brought extensive changes to a number of vehicles. Some vehicles changed their tier, some vehicles changed their type, which resulted in changes to their technical characteristics. All low-tier vehicles, without exception, had their durability increased.

Such extensive changes affected the performance of particular vehicles as expected. According to the statistics from live servers, additional adjustments are required; so at the Supertest players will see vehicles that were most affected by the update. You can see the list of additional adjustments below.

  1. Too late, they don’t play their game. It’s crazy… It was clear as day, before the patch, that there was a big problem here…
    And it’s still mostly too little. A tier 5 light going at 55 km/h, really ? With the still low p/w ratio ?
    Let’s hope they test them correctly and make more changes…

  2. Not sure if the 1.9_6 micropatch itself or sth relating to the event, but something broke the in-game Store for me. It gives an error after trying to load for a couple seconds.

    Found out it relates to PerAppRuntimeBroker.

    Tried to solve it in regedit, didn’t work. Any ideas how I might be able to fix it?

  3. all these “buffs” and “rebalances” to all kinds of things but the British light tanks are still as bad as always, you would expect they already have enough data to know they need to change them

  4. They should have thought about it in the second or third iteration of the 1.9 patch when everyone was already telling them to do so.

  5. They need to buff the VK 30.01P too they made it a heavy tank but still operates the same as the old medium except downgraded top speed

    1. agreed
      the VK 30.01P has Medium Tank armour BUT now its a Heavy Tank BUT without any real armour
      it cannot fight like a Heavy Tank or do anything else a Heavy tank does, pointless and confusing

      a MT that’s pretending its a fast HT
      it has a short 88mm Gun with 145 pen and 220 alpha ~ does this alone make it now a Heavy Tank?

      Wargame should stay off the all-night/ weekend Vodka binges when they plan ‘big’ Vehicle changes

  6. Crusader: improved the spotting…

    ……..

    Then mentioned nothing about spotting stats lmao.

    1. I was just thinking the very same thing. Seriously, this is just a token buff. Even with this buff the Crusader will still be miles behind the competition. And nothing about the VK 30.01P even though it is crap as a heavy tank. Oh, hang on, it’s German, so it’s absolutely fine if it sucks. My bad.

  7. Again TAP are beaching WG policy by posting articles that’s reserved for certain WG staff. I am also collecting names/ip numbers of the most verbally offensive ones and expect bans from WG forums and from the game itself.

    1. Ahahah nice meme. Everyone can write “Forum Moderator” on their name too.
