  1. Finally will be able to play my Covenanter, though the fun derp gun is even les efficient at tier 5 now, sigh…

    1. WG should never have increased the tier of those UK low/mid tier tanks. They should have put the A-46 Light Tank at tier 6, between the tier 5 Crusader and the tier 7 Setter. A lot less work (c.q. hours/salary) then reworking 3 up-tiered tanks for their new tiers.

      But no the A-46 will be made a premium, because better balance does not sell or retain player, only releasing new premium tanks do…WG & WoT ever, since 2016.

      1. Yep, I completely agree. All of this is a bizarre move from WG. They didn’T think about all the consequences. Heck, they didn’t think about this at all.
        I used to love the OQF 3 inch howitzer on the Covenanter. At tier 4, it ‘kinda’ worked. And it didn’t used to work at tier 5 on the crusader.
        Now, it’S tier 5 and 6 tanks. It doesn’t make sense. Why didn’t they give the gun to the Cruiser IV ?
        The only one left at tier 4 with this gun is the Matilda. No sense to use it on such a slow platform…
        But yeah, they have a big management problem, they seem to not think at all on some stuff sometimes…

      1. To be honest, the map is shit in any mode. 😉 They should remove it completly. There are other old maps they have removed that were better than this.

      1. His comment relates to the topic and is his opinion, your comment was pure garbage.
        So your name has to be changed to unnecessary troll..

        @topic: as already said somewhere else in the internetz, more maps were removed in the past than any good ones were released. Lets have a look at this map, starting with no expectations, so no disappointment can happen.
        ..btw. calling this map big, because its 50m bigger… what a joke..how many percent are not useable and blocked by crap, a river & co?

  2. Funny thing :
    There is now 5 ”tier 5 derp medium”
    The Pz4H, M4A1, Sherman 3, G1 R, and Cavalier.
    Why didn’t they took the chance to balance all 5 of them ?
    Some are clearly better than others, and some are so not played that they are even unknown from most…
    Come on WG, it’s so easy to do better ! sigh…

    Edit : I forgot about the VK 30.01 (H)…. can be a derp med too, didn’T try it…
