Today I spectated a team mate go gead to head in his Lowe against the GD...the GD took him apart and bounced several shots from the Lowe...I had to look away...

 

(the GD player was pretty good...he rampaged against us and almost carried his team)

I am sorry but your mate needs to be better with the Lowe. The Lowe is perfect to killing GD.

Still raging about this tank. Totally OP cannot be faced with T6 tanks as it just squashes them. 

 

Even the turret ring looks red with t6 prammo. 

 

The lower plate is so low sometimes you just can't see it reliably let alone pen it. 

 

Yes the Helsing annoys me but the GD is just idiotic.

Totally agree, the sooner that WG "blue" this tank and send it to its own map hell, along with all the other "fake" tanks the better......

Let all the owners play mad games on their own map, without us being forced to play against them unless we actually wish to be masochistic the sooner the better.......

Lol, you bounced so much in that battle, it was comedy, I bet they were both raging in the garage :)

I agree though it is stupid OP when top tier, I did a run of 10 wins in a row in it just recently and I’m not very good!

Erhhh check your graphics settings m8?  Its already blue! 

 

I think a lot of folks seem to rather unrealistically want a level of balance that would simply ruin the game.  Too fast... too slow ... not enough pen ... too much pen ... too big a boom ... not enough boom ... 

 

Last time I checked this was a dumb game for phones and tablets ... ohhh and by the way the last thing you ever want in battle is a fair fight - you want all the odds in your favour and if you pray hard enough you might get them.  If you're not you better be good  and lucky.

Sorry DumbApe, I must have missed that, as I don't have any fantasy tanks, there is no way I can see that it's blue......

And secondly, if WG have made it blue, why didn't they do the same as other tanks they made blue and totally Nerf them out of existence?

I think that WG have been pretty clear on event tanks being collectibles- the T22 is too.  In some ways it makes a hell of a lot of sense to have these in the game for events and maybe the rejig  of tiers and the associated nerfing of many but not all was a way of monetising the game without the difficulty of nerfing premium tanks. 

 

Balance between tanks is really entirely down to context. We have favourites and skills that vary - I really like the T71 for example, but you can’t compare it to a tiger.  Balancing 14’players across two teams accounting for all the variations possible just isn’t feasible and even if it was how about those times when we are just off our game or just d icking around.  It happens - it is supposed to be fun and vive la  difference as far as I am concerned.

No need to be sorry...he's not my mate, just a player on my team during a battle...so I don't really mind one way or the other.

 

I did also mention that the GD player was a good player.

 

Not raging against the GD as I am pretty indifferent to it and have sent several to the garage.

 

Just wanted to say that IMO...if in the right hands the GD is awesome - but in the wrong hands its just a hunk of junk like many of the tanks which are deemed to be 'OP'.

The GD is the least fun fantasy tank of them all. Without mobility the six shot autoloader is just dull and its OP against Tier 6s but sucks against the IS spam on 8 so you need to rely on MM on whether youll have a fun game or not. In terms of OP Tier 7 heavies a Lupus wipes the floor with the GD.

The Black Prince suffers from the same Problem as the Digger. Its great at annihilating Tier 6 and some Tier 7 tanks but an IS-5 with decent skill will laugh at an easily pennable tank spamming 135 Alpha apcr shots. A Lupus in a sidescraping or hulldown position is a serious threat to any tank it faces.

Even blitzstars tank compare says Lupus is better with 0.7% higher average winrate. And GraveRigger is newer, so it should have higher WR? Damage ratio is 21% higher for Lupus.

Lupus is completely different type of broken. Doesn't seem to have proper disadvantages. I can only dream what can I do with the Lupus now that I have almost 67% wr with the IS-2 (1945).

 

The GD and BP are perfect for the current meta of bad players  in high tiers.

For some tier 8 tanks GD in a good position can be a serious concern or a nasty thing to overcome.

Such a s.h.i.t.t.y fantasy tank, especially created for those brave wallet warriors. Impenetrable frontally for 99% of tier 6 guns. Absolutely disgusting.
