Progetto nerf? looks to me like it is balanced since it dropped back this update but its at the top with the 121 and stb, would like to know more about these nerfs and if they are going to destroy the tank

So nobody within that winrate band played the Deathstar, Indien or Panther II in 6.4? Or are the numbers broken?

Or the WR don't reach the minimum of the y-axis.

Which I think is something like the Hitler Youth.

(Worst pun ever in history, I think I have claimed my immortality.)

Interesting as ever. However, the numbers don't reflect reality. By just using a tiny subset of the playerbase, the actual gaming experience of the majority is ignored. As an example, albeit anecdotal rather than statistical, the Tiger II looks amazing. Most times I see them, they are utterly useless,driven by someone who's rushed up the tiers to get an "iconic" vehicle.

I agree with you and my experience is the same but I think the approach of using top players is the best option, well least worst really :)

if they went down to the 55 level the tanks would be buffed even more than they already are and would be ridiculously OP for that 55+ group of players which is going to be much larger than the current set and make the experience even worse...

The issue is that the guys on the right end of the bell curve aren't the majority, aren't the ones who provide the majority of the money. Just buffing tanks doesn't help their enjoyment, but is likely to increase their disaffection and reduce their long-term engagement. 

Here's a radical idea: integrate a series of training videos in the game called "Win more battles". Bet nobody has ever suggested that... :facepalm:

6.7 stats arrived

 

Tier 10

 

Tier 9

 

Tier 8

 

What will happen to ATGM tanks? 

 

While introducing the ATGM vehicles, we promised to keep an eye on their battle performance and make prompt balance changes if necessary. The latest data analysis suggests the changes are necessary, so the new LTs will be re-balanced already in Update 6.8.

 

 

  • Reducing APCR penetration will cause these light tanks to play their direct role on the battlefield—instead of penetrating heavies from the top.
  • The missiles were conceived as "situative" ammo suitable for quite narrow scope of battle situations. Initially, the ATMs appeared to be too versatile, so their penetration and damage are going to be decreased.
  • The T92E1 used to bounce shots too effectively for a light tank, so its upper glacis plate thickness will be reduced.

Excellent news! Hope it's enough. Limiting the ammo capacity would be a good good idea, too. Not sure how more than 6 152mm shells or 4 missiles would fit inside any of the three tanks.

Limiting missiles is also an option but it takes more time. This is why we decided to react quickly with balance changes.

Fair enough. Being a slow developer, I'd just started testing the waters in tier X when these were launched, and it's put me off.

Just saying, could Wg keep an eye also on tier 5/6/7? you know, Wotb is not composed only of those 3 high tiers even tho the majority of the games are played there, but there are also tier 5/6/7 (tier 2/3/4 are long forgotten).

there are some really overcooked tanks down there such as Leopard & T1s...
