New tanks range.

Postby Count » Thu 12 Apr 2012 22:03

Congratulations, hordes of top tanks just rolling over everything. Why bother about any other tanks if they have lol range?
ATGM firing at yuu tanks? Move slightly close and in 5 seconds ATGM will be in range insta killed. Or just kite them, missile get out of range and they just deplete their ammo.
Enemy non top tanks moving at you? Just kite them back and get no fire.
Enemy APC engaging? Same solution, just kite back, they will be dead before get in range.
And since it include kiting nato tank work much better.
Only one problem, why top tanks dont shhot at chopper from guns? If they do, we can just remove all other not necessary units from game. Just leave blue tank from nato and red tank for wp. :lol:

Is it safe to say that this patch should be called WarGame: World of Tanks?

I knew someone was gonna bitch about this patch. IMHO, top tier tanks were useless prior to patch. Now they're alot better and that's how it's supposed to be considering their price. You just need to adopt another strategy other than ATGM spam or cheap tank spam.

Only time will tell. Nobody has been playing since the patch for long enough to say anything meaningful.

It's definitely not realism at play, I mean ask the Iraqis in "91 about how their T-55s and T-62s fared against the M1s in open desert.




Oh wait, they were out-ranged in most cases by over a kilometer.

I remember reading that the Bundeswehr did ranging tests in Germany in the '80s...IIRC more than half of the sighting ranges were less than a kilometer, and where you could see out to 2000-3000+ meters often required sitting on top of a large conspicuous hill.

In any case, the terrain in the "Central Region" is not billiards ball table flat like the deserts which the battles of the 1991 Gulf War were fought. That and you've got factors like European weather, atmosphere and haze to restrict visibility and the "theoretical/weapons manufacturer claim/Wikipedia-cited maximum range" of weapons systems.

I'd like to see you do that and win most of your games , especially vs cheap unit spammers.
