      I see now why this ad was like this. Maybe making a reference to that scene? I dunno, I don’t follow/watch anime that much.

      Though sticking a “50% discount” sticker hopefully also means we SEA/Asia players get a discount soon.

        It doesn’t mention anything about an armor buff. I don’t care about the 15.2 cm gun because the Type 5 already has the worst DPM of superheavy tanks. Unless they plan to significantly improve the reload of the 14 cm gun, the 15.2 cm gun is useless and does absolutely nothing to improve its survivability among other tier Xs.

        In other words, I don’t give two shits about the new gun. I just want to know if it will get better armor. If not, then it might be time for me to finally leave this game.

        @RagnarokBazil Eh. That might be more suitable but the tank still suffers from serious game design flaws. Its armor is useless against premium shells and it cannot reliably bounce large caliber TD guns. Also, its DPM is the lowest among tier X superheavy tanks. Honestly, it doesn’t need a derp gun and the 14 cm is modestly decent as it is. They just need to fix the armor and DPM and the tank’s golden.

      3. Hopefully by giving the Type 5 and 4 a better gun, they will do better with trading their health. The Type 5’s armor thickness is already some of the thickest in the game and normal rounds struggle to hurt it so it is really hard to say if the developers think the line needs more armor when it had been balanced for standard rounds and not premium. The real problem isn’t a buff to the Japanese Heavy’s armor but just rebalancing gold rounds and ensuring that any slow, heavily armored tank has the tools necessary to effectively trade their health (ie gun or armor).

        Unfortunatly, I am only at the O-Ni in the heavy line and can’t say anything about the higher tiered tanks but the armor is really outstanding, most games I won’t bounce less than my health in damage so it seems the armor system is fairly adequate. I did juggle between the 15cm and the 10cm and I found the 15cm pretty great in a platoon since you could equally or out trade your opponents as though you were driving a VK 45.02B. Hopefully the gun won’t get out of hand but there isn’t enough info to tell how it would play out in high tier games.

        Washington: “What is the long term effect of too much information? One of the effects is the need to be first, not even to be true anymore. So what is the responsibility you all have? To tell the truth, not to just be first, but to tell the truth. We live in a society now where it’s just first. Who cares? Get it out there. We don’t care who it hurts, we don’t care who we destroy, we don’t care if it’s true. Just say it, sell it.”

        @Rita I dont mean you destroy anything or hurt someone with your posts, I just wanted to agree with Abusemtex comment about news.

    1. Haha, NeverMind, pointless is a matter of perspective, also, they very well knew the release of this advertisement and it was a fairly unique find 🙂

      Otherwise, it’s down to ourselves to start up debates and conversations like this fun chat about the anticipation to the buff to high tier japanese heavies. It is important to remember that if every day had some fascinating and exciting news that the world would reset and the grand would become bland. Take the high’s with the lows and cherish the balance of joy.

    They (WG ASIA) should first fix what’s wrong with their servers.

    Getting 300-400 ping on the ASIA server while only 170 on the EU while living in India seems strange.

    just want to point it out, even though WoT JPN is part of WoT ASIA, they run on a diffrent promotion track. heck, they even got their own separate youtube channel from the Asia one (name ENTIRELY in japanese, link: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKYGztXgmKiw_APH6J8AzjQ)

    WOT Asia never made ads. best they got is the regulars, and the occasional videos that make you think “wtf is this supposed to be?”

    1. Those wtf videos are weird but what about the bizarre a.f polls on the Asia homepage? Asking about who you would give candy to or what you would do with a stray cat. It’s a tank game ffs.
