Thank you for your participation in the discussion of the upcoming BR changes. We have already updated the spreadsheet based on it. Here we go with explanations of some of the changes.
The practice of the adding new shells has raised questions from many of you about the reduction in armour effectiveness at top ranks.
Taking into account your concerns about the Leopard, we have abandoned the announced addition of the DM53 shell and the possible BR increase (up to 11.0) of the vehicle. The vehicle will remain at BR 10.7 and will not receive that shell in this BR change.
There is a big discussion around this vehicle. You recommended leaving it at the current BR.
However, this tank, placed at BR 4.0 has an efficiency that exceeds the efficiency of similar vehicles from other nations at the same rank. Taking into account your feedback as well as our own observations the fire rate will also be increased when increasing its BR.
In general there was a question about these vehicles based on their supposed effectiveness and some players recommended leaving it at its initial BR.
But in reality the Wiesel 1A2 is currently superior in efficiency to both the M3A3 and Dardo, while enjoying high popularity. This is the reason for raising the BR to 9.3. Ozelot also will go up in BR for similar reasons - a combination of high efficiency and high popularity.
Type 90 and Type 90 (B)
You asked to add for these vehicles more powerful shells, like the M829A1 or the DM43.
This question is quite complicated because the known shells used for these vehicles didn’t include any other anti-tank ammunition than already used in the game. We ike to be very careful about adding ammunition that could presumably be used in such cases. We absolutely don’t consider the US M829A1 as an option to add. The possibility of adding DM43 is being considered in the long term. At the moment both Type 90’s have slightly above average effectiveness among rank VII MBTs (main battle tank) and that’s a pretty good indicator.
M26 T99, M26 Ariete and M26A1
Also included in the updated BR sheet as they are close equivalents of already modified vehicles. We thank the players who informed us about these vehicles.
This is the short list of changes. All changes you will find in the updated table sheet.
