Despite that I have repeatedly pointed at the main argument several times.. yet, I'm amazed that it was still confusing or somehow unseen!
Overall, heavy tanks are only weaker in the beta.. compared to the current official version.
Reload got increased, sight range got reduced, and rear is now weaker... Only +5 more basic range in return DOES NOT compensate with all these.
So for heavy tanks; these are 3 nerf and only 1 small buff.
For the super heavy tanks... Such as KT and SP, now they have 10-11 seconds reload (used to be 5-6 seconds), also weaker rear.. and less sight range.Aaaand? Even no range buff
just.. nothing. Almost double the reload time, and no range buff.. not even +5 more range like heavy tanks.
Not to mention that I never said there was a glitch, as I only stated that usually it's easier to score rear hits on moving tanks.. specifically throughout a real PvP scenario, action often requires enemy tanks to keep relocating themselves every now and then.

What happened in the beta however, wasn't just that!
The rear armor also became weaker, and sight range was dramatically reduced by removing scope upgrades as well, which I'm not against btw.
Nonetheless, I'm just totally convinced now that the current range increase prior to the other changes implemented.. is simply not sufficient.
The range increase of just +5 to heavy tanks, and "NOTHING" for super heavy tanks despite increasing the reload times to almost DOUBLE the original reload time value, which means that the rate of fire is now half as it used to be.. is simply so downgrading.
Clearly; the current range bonus is not enough, as it does not compensate with the other drawbacks combined...
That's because the current range bonus is very minimal.
So, the primary argument once again.. just in case;
Heavy tanks (Tiger1, Pershing) received 3 nerfs on different aspects, with only 1 small buff in return.
And super heavy tanks (KT, SP) received the same nerfs as heavy tanks, but even absolutely nothing in return...
Thus, I kinda wonder what the new meta is going to be... I can only see that heavy tanks are gradually being excluded from any serious games.
