  1. Anyone says:

    This is the 3rd time they have told us about this stupid idea, and it just keeps getting more and more shitty! WG needs to get bent and leave the Obj. 263 alone.

  2. OeilBleu says:

    Why do they have to lower the dpm on the tier 10? I’m currently enjoying my 263 in clan wars, but there would be no point in taking the 268 v4 if that thing reloads in 20 seconds.

    It’s utterly bad, the classic 268 reloads in only 15 seconds. It’s even worse than the wt pz4 and the grille 15, and these two have turrets.

    1. They literally gave this viewrange to a tank that HAS to fight in close range due to the gun having arty levels of accuracy. WG logic, I swear the QA/Balancing team in this company is made out of tomatoes.

  3. Shadowhunter says:

    The 263 was special in that it was a highly mobile, low alpha but high rate of fire TD. This means that it has a unique playstyle unlike any of the tier 10 TDs. However, WG decides to fix things that do not need to be fixed and replace it with yet another boring 750 alpha TD. We already have a lot of those. Why replace it with another one ???

  4. I mean why change tanks that no asked to be changed. And not the ones that need it.

    Instead they wanna gaff about with one of the most balanced tier 10 tanks in the game. Idiots.

    Not to mention the new tier 10 playstyle is nothing like current and nothing like the rest of the tree.

    Sure the tier 7 and 8 in this line needed some love. But that doesn’t mean change the entire rest of the line.

    1. Brucalizer says:

      Yup totally agree, the T10 is fine, the lower tiers just need a little help (e.g. buff T9 armour a bit, buff T8 dpm and armour a little) They don’t need to throw us a new tank

  5. Mikosah says:

    The new tier 10 is still taking the worst of both worlds- boring clone of the Jageru’s hull, and a boring clone of the typical 155mm TD gun. The top speed and view range are something, but these alone are not enough to make this even close to as interesting as the current obj 263. WG, just leave this line alone. Give some buffs to tiers 7-9 if you have to, but all of these proposals to move tanks around or replace them are a counterproductive waste of energy. Itstimetostop.jpg

  6. Well, it looks like they haven’t yet fixed the tier 8-10, but at least the line makes a bit more sense now (since all the tanks have a rear casemate, rather than jumping between rear & front casemate positioning like the old line did). However, this definitely seems preliminary, as the tier 8 SU-101 still has the same stats as the 101 from the original rework [aka when it was a tier 7 and the SU-122-54 was a tier 8], just with the 122 shown instead of the 100. Same health/armor and everything.

    Even though I think the 263 should be left alone, I can at least appreciate that they’re trying to improve the gameplay of the tier 7-8 vehicles. If they can buff the tier 8-10 enough to make them actually worth using (compared to these stats, anyway), then I think the rework should be fine, but… when it comes down to it the current 263 (as we have it on the live server) is perfectly fine (if not very good) IMO, so a change isn’t really necessary.

  7. Nobeer_ says:

    Not long ago they fixed view range on the TD’s, and now they are being retarded to plan to implement a TD that will outspot any light in the game..

  8. Liam says:

    Now this is something to bitch about. I think I’ll be throwing in the towel if they move my 263. To many unnecessary drastic changes are being made when the focus should be on new maps and MM improvements.

  9. Brucalizer says:

    What in all that is holy is this line? You go from being blind as a bat from T7 to T9, to getting some sick telescope like view range?? This just looks stupid

  10. Anonymous says:

    I wonder if WG cuts the head off a chicken and let’s it run around for a bit on a grid of tier 10’s. Where it stops they “balance”. Now the deathstar is understandable, but this one is just full of mental illness. Hell the 263 was probably the Russian TD that ever caught my eye. Now it’s gonna be another version of the other tier 10. Idk how they justified that one. If they wanted to bring the new version in of the 268, then add it to the that tree. Don’t take a low alpha/fast firing combo TD and change it to what the others do. This is just terrible.

      1. It bloody better not be *entirely* removed. At most it should be a side step in the branch like the JPII.

        Arghhh WG you asshats stop messing with the lines for spurious reasons no one is actually affected by >:|

        DON’T TOUCH MY GODDAMN SU-122-54

    1. kunexar says:

      We had whole branch brought 1 tier down and su100m1 deleted, now we lose su54 and only 263 is brought down 1 tier. Still same shitty T10 design, and just those rumors are major factor why i stopped playing that line at all (wanted to get 263 and su54, now ill just go for chinese td’s?). We will see what happens here

  11. Kindabruh says:

    WG, Before you implement this tier 10, lemme ask you a question. What happened to tech tree gameplay consistency? This alternate Soviet TD line is characterised by it’s low alpha yet fast firing guns. Now a tier 10 with presumably 152mm gun with a 20 sec reload? Also, don’t we already have enough TDs with guns of calibers between 150mm to 155mm at tier 10?
    Last but not least, the Obj 263 had a unique style of gameplay. Please stop ruining the game by taking away tanks with unique gameplay.

  12. Rani says:

    850 hp on tier 8 td … from 990
    And from 360 m view range at tier 9 to 420…
    And one of the best looking tanks just banished from tier 9
    Huge Facepalm

  13. Blankman says:

    Thanks for nothing, WG.. And here i thought that you’ve sobered up just a wee bit on the Brit HT line changes.. The way you’ve lift our trust up slightly just to slam and spit on our hope for a better balancing is outstanding, really..

  14. Goran says:

    They wanna perfect line with Fighting Compartment back… My arse. SU-101 with -2 now and -3 in the future with 0,42 dispersion gonna make ppl to give up from this line. Idea of getting Su-122-54 instead this, was better. But, Hey they made failures before Kannonenjagdpanzer- remeber it and “great’ Panther 88 – in tier 8, when they should be max T7.
    WZ-120 FT has better stats than USSR T8. Just copy stats from it to Su-122-54 and put it T-8.
    T 9 and 10 with dispersion 0,43 and 0,44 – what kind of drugs do they take….
