WoT 9.20 Japanese Heavy Changes

46

Good day everyone,

Something news worthy on an otherwise slow day, changes to a few select Japanese heavies in supertest, apparently for Patch 9.20. Even better, the screens are in English!

O-I Exp.

Overall frontal armor will be increased, allowing it to serve better as a breakthrough heavy. However, its 105 will be removed and overall mobility will be reduced.

O-I

Overall rear armor reduction.

O-Ho

A premium AP round will be added to the 10cm gun, giving the tank a bit more flexibility when engaging armored targets. Penetration is looking to be 250-260mm.

 

Type 4 & Type 5 Heavy

Both heavies will receive some buffs to maneuverability, bringing them slightly ahead of the Maus. However they will also be gaining some (relative) weak spots to their frontal hulls.

Just general news for now, of course we will update as more news comes out.

    What’s currently penetrating the Type 5 still penetrate, what’s not still not going to,
    10 is insufficient.

    O-I Exp. changes should make it a bit like the t1 heavy. I already run the long 75, as the 100mm is just too inconsistent and derpy, so it might be nice to get a mild armour buff to make rapid fire brawling easier.

    FFS WG, the 105 was the good thing about it, its armor was good enough.

    O-I Exp: The armor increase is of no value in world of goldammo. The loss of the 105mm gun of course is a huge nerf as well as the loss of mobility. People argue over armor meta, but the fun fact remains that the best performing japanese heavy is the one with the least amount of armor.

    O-I: I dont like it. People should be punished for not knowing weakspots… especially if those weakspots are two giant 35mm sides that can be hit at any range with any gun. Of course still retains the op 150mm cHEAT pen on goldammo. Because fuck balancing, give us your money.

    O-Ho: The tank is about the derp and only the derp. Which is the only useful thing on an otherwise completly useless turd. IS3 in the most incapable of hands will rape this anywhere anytime. Still shit tank, not worth playing.

    Type 4: While it is technically nice to see WG bringing back weakspots, the reality is that unless they make it go 60 km/h it will remain an absolutly piece of shit of tank. Any credible threat on the battlefield will make it eat 330mm cHEAT for autopen anywhere. Not to mention the gun is still shit…. because it is balanced unlike pretty much all other gold ammo.

    Type 5: Basically the same issue, just a tier higher. Useless gun or pay to win gun, your choice. Still even with full gold loadout no match for any autoloader from 3 tiers below. Useless shit tank.

    “its overall 105mm will be removed” for the O-I Exp.

    Well, if i look at that table and on the ingame stats the O-I Exp will get a massive buff of its frontal armor (BEFORE 85 to AFTER 115). No wonder he will loose speed.

    • OR make there HE spam as unreliable to hit with and damage things as the current artillery guns of the same caliber.

        Low-Mid tiers are unplayable because of all the derp guns and now it’s starting to infect high tiers as well. Being able to reliably do a couple of 100 HP of damage per shot without aiming is a retarded game mechanic especially since there is no way to negate this damage.

        WG wants to make armor important again but the only way to do that is to remove derp guns and fix gold ammo spam, not these retarded armor buffs all the super heavies have been getting.

    Yay, the changes they promised ages ago, and which should have been in the super-heavy patch, are here! [/sarcasm]

    Not that I’m terribly happy with more tanks getting their historical values screwed over, although for O-I it won’t matter too much? I don’t often get tanks riding up my ass and shooting over and over, and when they do they generally have their skill ammo loaded anyway.

    wait, when is 9.20 coming out? i can’t wait (i have SID (super impatience disorder)) any longer. i mean, i get that wg can’t have a new update ready on the drop of a hat but still. also, on type 5, its a noob’s favorite tank. you just hop in, watch those tiny little dots scratch your fat *** armour, then shoot everyone to death, one giant *** shell at a time. then wrinkle your nose when a pro flanks you and kills you. NO SKILL REQUIRED! BUY TODAY AND RECIEVE A O.O1% DISCOUNT! (each sold seprately.)

    They could have just reduced the 105mm’s alpha to 270-280 instead of flat out removing it.

  17. Okay, that the 105 gets removed on the POI EXP is nice, but why does its armour get buffed above the average of tier 5 meduims and even most tier 6 meds are not going to pen it anymore? The Chi-Nu it’s gun is good enough, but just WHY WG? this thing is going to be a Maus at tier 5, and it is retarded, keep the armour as is, since it is troll enough already….

    Historical armor on O-I? Fcuk that, let’s invent our own armor! Retardew WG with all of their latest ultra retarded balancing decisions!
    And 10mm less aromor on small weakspots on Type5? Still you cannot pen that “weakspot” reliably with standart ammo but almost all high tier gold will go through that, so this does not change anything.

    I feel that those people saying type 4/5 needs nerf are trying to snipe it frontally with basic rounds and don’t actually own one. Because the Japanese Heavy line is just…shit… here is a summary of type 5, w-w-w, wait 3 minutes… sizzle…sizzle…sizzle… you dead..
