Thanks tor the info.

So we can expect to see a nerf to the VK 100.01P then?

121b was mentioned as getting a buff in earlier release how was that decided as it’s not on these charts?

Also, can you publish the charts for tiers v, vi or vii as it would be interesting to see how things look there?

No point in adding charts for tiers 1 to 4 as each tank is the same just a different skin.

Tiers 1-4 are pointless, all samey samey and plain boring now.  WG broke them.  Added to that and the never ending drive by WG to propel new players up the tiers faster has affected the higher tiers.  Not only that game waiting times are increasing in all tiers both ranked and random.  So it's only Ranked Battles for me until it's all corrected.  That along with no more spending.

Nerf the hull traverse rate please.  No more than 18 at most.  Give enemy a chance to flank before the VK 100.01 (P) can properly angle itself.

Glad to see the VK 72 is doing better than everyone seemed to say. Had been put off grinding it even though I really the idea of a tier X rear mounted turret.

I wonder how much they overnerf the VK100 and Mauschen.

Lots of very good player are grinding this new line and chasing the Ace medal so this possibly pushes the stats higher then its true average.

I would like to see a plot of players average winrate per tank also.

 

Having driven only the Vk100 it is stronger then others for its tier and does need a minor nerf.

Its just too hard to pen it, this lets it live longer and has more impact on the match.

This can be viewed on https://tank-compare.blitzstars.com by its higher survivability and damage ratios.

I expected the VK to be high, just not this high. Good morning gamers, let's get this nerf bread.
(Not surprised about the Type 61 being this low too)

Actually Mauschen and VK 100.01P are the least popular HT on 8-9 tiers. This is why we'll look on numbers when their popularity increases.

Thanks RibbleStripe, Interesting, I hadn’t considered the popularity aspect, good to know for me as I’m grinding it :)

Is there any view yet on what the potential changes will be?

Could you add the popularity to the charts too?

When I look at the charts on tank-compare it shows there are many more players in the VK100 then the other tier8 Heavies.

I know this data is not 100% so it would be good to see what data you have that classes them as popular or not.

So you will keep waiting while some players crush others with obviously an OP tank? You can't even see without gathering numbers :) It is not at about numbers, it is all about tank's itself. Ask any experienced and over average player,  9/10 of them would say that tank is OP. In my garage or not, i don't like obviously OP tanks. Just like prem Chinese TD, but you know it very well, don't you?

I'd be interested in hearing when can we expect a nerf to those two big boys. I don't exactly expect it soon like Ribble said, but can we expect them in 5.9 at least?

Funny that people speak of the VK100.01P same as they speak of the Mäuschen. For me there is a big difference, as the VK to me seems much stronger Tier-for-Tier. The armour is almost as good as the Mäuschen despite being a Tier lower, the Gun as well. I've driven both and despite of the numbers (I think they are due to popularity, you see much more VK100.01Ps than Mäuschens) I think the VK is undoubtedly OP while the Mäuschen isn't better than a Maus for its Tier.

I think the VK is only OP in the hands of a competent player. Too many people have trouble with the cupola - had a couple of games today with the Cent I, on Mines and Oasis Palms. In the former, I was hull down on the ridge knocking spots off him and he couldn't touch me, in the latter he tried to cap and it stuck out above the rocks so I could tear into it from the desert. I know the graphing is based on 55%+WR players, but there don't seem to be too many of those in the VK just now.

Guys, as i said before, we are not going to make any harsh decision concerning VK 100.01P and Mauschen. When popularity grows stats become more relevant.
