In 2016's inaugural Twister Cup, the Obj 140 played a key role in the finals. 2017 saw the Maus move to the forefront. In one of Sk8xtrm's vid, I think he talked about last year's tier X was the year of the medium, this year's tier X is the year of the heavy ...

 

... so what do you think next year will bring? Will heavy play dominate tier X, will it favor TDs or lights, or will it end up more balanced?

I know this is like really pushing the boundaries of the possible but i think 2018 just might be the 'year of the noob'

Year of the 'depends what patches nerf to the ground and overbuff'.
'Maus is overpowered, but we don't nerf it because it's unpopular.'
'Dracula is overpowered, but we don't nerf it because it's a premium.'

They'll probably overbuff the other American heavies and tds since they're quite unpopular. Also probably gonna buff leopard1 gun, and nerf 4202 again to convince you to get the actionX. What else? Probably buff Maus armor again. Year of the Maus.

Are they? I see them quite a lot in tiers 7 and 8. The premium T34 seems to be showing up a lot more recently too.

Year of the Chieftain one hopes. 

 

A broader category would be the heavium then. Again, Chieftain is an MBT good and proper (although more of heavy tank due to engine problems, which you dont get in games) and the T110E5 is getting a large buff, as should the FV215b. Add to that Chinese heavies basicallybeing a second lone of IS tanks - fast, well armoured and stronk.

Lol maus is absolutely not op.Its armor is good but when a maus angles it can easily penetrated trough tracks because inside armor is only 80.If you think maus op on blitz you should need to look at pc wot because it has 260 armor on turret front and 140 armor on track inside.

That's a quote, if you can't tell.

Maus seems fine now, maybe the gun could be a bit weakened, seems to be performing too well, allowing you to instantly cash in on the armor.

Hopefully a new game mode. Where tanks doesnt have to do back and forth at exactly same positions every match.

if ı was an outsider who never played this game and watch those games ı would never play this game. İt looks stupid and boring.

Maus is struggling a lot.Thats why its not popular.Even medium tanks can penetrate trough turret cheeks.Maus is the only underpowered tank in tier 10 now.

Seriously?

 

So we just disregard the fact that the Maus and the IS-7 were the two most used tanks in the twister cup? those guys cant tell a good tank from a bad, right?

 

Then how about the random players?

oh yeah. the maus has by far the highest wr of any tier x heavy. of any tier x tank, actually.

 

clearly underpowered and in need of a buff!

 

edit: and in light of what we saw in twister cup, i say you should prepare yourself for the nerfhammer hitting the maus.

Winrate is high because a lot of noobs use ıs7 and e100.I didnt saw any bad maus driver for now.

 

Also how you gonna nerf maus?gun is bad, mobility is bad, armor isnt that amazing.tds can puch trough maus upper glacis easily.If you dont angle your turret people puch through there easily.Nerf the maus and it will going to pure crap tank.

no. just no. thats wrong, and i can prove it:

 

look at the red and orange lines. In the hands of a unicum (right end of graph), the is-7 and Maus prefer very similarly, but for low skill players the Maus has crazy high performance compared to the IS-7.

 

you can also see from the brown areas, that is-7 is a not more popular tank among noobs, than the maus is.

 

how they may nerf the maus? dispersion on the rotation would have great impact, because maus is always looking away between shots. nerfing rof or track traverse could also be done, or simply reducing the hp pool.

Can we all stop hating everything WG does now? I know the equipment thing was terrible from WG but they’ve been trying to improve the game recently. Let’s just not hate them like they’ve been making more and more errors everyday. They admitted as well that nerfing the Centurion and Fv was a mistake and we can’t imagine how hard it is to just please every player. There are some things still that have issues, but WG is doing something. They changed up Military honors to see if it would work, but there are issues in it still. They can’t just please every one

tbh, i think things have been run so and so from and including 3.8 with the eqp changes. Balancing has been all over the place, with the FV and 7/1 being just the most grave case, where they misbalanced them repeatedly. Other example are the french td and light line, where the balance and rebalancing appears to be decided randomly, as well as the new brit line. cruiser2, anyone? :facepalm:

 

as for the recent balance changes, some good and some just off. Jpz4? dicker? stug?

 

and we just had a grind event where getting tanks was well outside the ability of most players. luckily, as the tanks were fantasy bs.

 

i dont question the devs will or wish to make the game better, but i do think they have been no more successful recently than they were before.

 

and 3.8 eqp changes may be a while ago, but most of my tanks suffer from it every battle.

Dude go check armor of maus in pc wot.It has much more armor in there and rof is already bad,track traverse is already bad.Why the fck you want from maus?Hp pool is already lower then pc wot again.

 

Btw ıs7 is more noob friendly then maus because you only need to hide your lower glacis.While in maus you need to angle your turret aswell.But you cant shoot them when angle your turret.

 

Maus is already hard tank to drive and nerfing it will completely destroy the tank.

lol, why do you speak about wot pc? its a completely different game. the challenges a maus face there have nothing to do with what it faces in blitz. youre comparing apples and oranges. 

 

and your opinions of which is more noob friendly and easy to succed in for new players, maus or is-7, are utterly irrelevant, as i above delivered statistical data that clear as the day prove your opinions to be wrong. Low skill players perform extremely well in the Maus. Not a little well, or very well. Extremely well. The performance statistics could not have been more clear on this.

Maus is noob friendly?Lol dont angle your turret and everone will punch trough there.But in ıs7 your only real weakspot is lower glacis.If some heavy going to get nerf it will be ıs7 not maus.
