Re: beating panthers

This is a bit of a tricky question as it highly depends on the situation really.. but as of now; based on what i experienced.. it currently takes about 2 Hellcats from ambush in a frontal engagement, or 3x 76 Shermans.. and 50:50 win chance vs 1 Jackson/Achilles. And usually loses vs Pershing, actua...

Re: beating panthers

Not answering on behalf of MEFISTO here but i think 76 cannon chances vs Panther should be as low as 75mm L48 chances vs Pershing, which - currently - they almost are. At no point should the 76 performance become as effective as 40% or 35% at max range as some players suggest, as this in my opinion ...

Re: Panthers, are they ok?

As far as I am concerned, devs haven't decided anything yet regarding this matter.. though; it's most likely that Panthers won't stay as they are and are probably going to change... Having said that; in order not to piss anyone off, I highly recommend that Panther's frontal armor stays as it is, whi...

Re: Panthers, are they ok?

Hands down? The Panther is the better tank. Without any denial. It has better armor, better speed and better accuracy. You said your opinion, but do you want mine? i would say when both tanks has no vet then Panther is probably better, but at vet.2 the Tiger1 is (undoubtedly) better.. and at vet.4 ...

Re: Panthers, are they ok?

It is overlapping too much with Tigers currently. Actually, if Panthers would get same armor as Tiger tanks, they would be overlapping even more.. because then Panther would be just a worse version of the Tiger1 which also has less abilities compared to Tigers. While currently, the Panther isn't ex...

Re: Panthers, are they ok?

Both balance approaches are viable but each has pros and cons. While this is true, there is also the option to establish a middle ground. So, instead of going only 2 ways; which are either to nerf the Panther's armor, or to keeping it as is... i would recommend reducing Panther's HP to 700 while de...

Re: Panthers, are they ok?

As exactly mentioned, it all comes down to player preference... However, i still side with those who think Panther should not be modified in terms of armor, even if by just 10% and there are a couple of reasons to that. - First of all, minimal armor reduction won't help that much anyway.. so it's no...

Re: v5.2.7 Discord

For allies, it's pretty much a game against time. If they don't manage to dominate axis and they start spamming op units like panthers, it's just gg. Only thing that can stop the game to be over is SP (the only allied axis-like unit), which will eventually go the tank heaven nonetheless. I had game...

Re: Panthers, are they ok?

While i might agree with Hawks how the poll might be a bit too detailed for some players.. yet, i hope as many people would take the time to participate with their opinions.

P.S
For the pen chances, i would assume this at max range? I answered accordingly.

Re: Elephant and Nashorn

i personally like the swap.

Elefant is now at 5 CPs only (used to be at 9 CP in Def doc) and SE also got Firefly + 76 Sherman that can both be called at once.
Def doc is also much better with Nashorn.

Re: Panthers, are they ok?

So i asume you are telling me. Sacrifice the variety of docs so the Panther can stay as it is. I think THAT sounds unfair to call at leased. Mate, the variety of the doctrines was sacrificed long time ago when the decision was taken to make them 1v1 oriented. At some point, you WILL HAVE TO sacrifi...

What is the counter-gameplay solution? Nerfing any unit that doesn't have a counter in certain doctrines?
is it the unit's fault? or the doctrine design fault? If adding a proper counter sounds boring, then nerfing the Panther sounds unfair...

We are back again. Balance arround the Panther instead the Panther itself.

That's exactly the intention of the docs re-work happened on v5.1.8 to begin with, the goal...

Re: Crawl ability for Storms

I agree that 7 CP for the crawl is too much, yet.. i wouldn't like any limitations on Shrecks either. Allowing them to crawl earlier shouldn't be at the cost of limiting Shrecks in my opinion. If anything, the Shreck makes more sense on the Urban Assault squad compared to the regular Storms. Short r...

Limited on time, so i am briefly going to say that I support anyone who thinks Panthers are not OP.. and the statement of "don't balance the game around one unit" is invalid in my opinion because the aim of docs rework was to allow every doc to be fully capable in 1vs1 games, however.. some Allied d...

Re: Panthers, are they ok?

The Panther has quite literally no weaknes. Its armor is superb and easily better than those of Jumbos. It has a good mobility, firepower and health. Let's see: The D variant being actually rubbish, with slow turret that rotates only 180 degrees and no top mounted MG. The G variant being available ...
