  9. Ei´t there suppose to be an event 9/9? Need to know if its time to stockpile beer and send my whife away?!?

    ReplyDelete
  10. I hope that 120mm from T34 but the hull armor much heavier

    ReplyDelete
  11. Turret armor looks much more nicely sloped... the bigger question to my mind is whether the hull armor will still be as ineffective as it is on the current US tanks. Nothing quite so irritating as the rear armor on my T-30 being penetrable by tier 3 or 4 guns. :/

    ReplyDelete
  12. Nice! Did u take ur name from the Overlord tank?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Is the turret that huge or is it just a smallish heavy? Pics side by side with other tanks would be awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I will get it when released :) Any infos about armour etc?

    ReplyDelete
  15. "The vehicle practically no one is waiting for."
    don't you mean the vehicle that people ARE waiting for?

    ReplyDelete
  16. ppl bitching about the T54 now what about this? lol

    ReplyDelete
  17. Overlord, So when the T34 becomes premium, will it automatically unlock the 120mm on the T34?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Oh!!!That's GREAT!!!!!
    Thanks,Overlord!!!
    I love U!!!

    ReplyDelete
  19. "Overlord, So when the T34 becomes premium, will it automatically unlock the 120mm on the T34?"

    Sure that the T34 will become a Tier 9 Premium? I guess they will made it to Tier 8 and give em the T32-Cannon.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Q: Overlord, So when the T34 becomes premium, will it automatically unlock the 120mm on the T34?

    A: T34 will become premium, there will be nothing to unlock.

    ReplyDelete
  21. It's... beautiful :-D.

    Do you have any more news on whether or not we will see this earlier than the T110? The T34 is suffering at tier 9, and the American line could REALLY use this tank.

    Also, I assume we won't see any stats on this tank till closer to its marvelous debut... but can you spill any pieces of information to us? If you haven't noticed, the American Heavy drivers are in a frenzy over this tank, so anything to sate them (including me :-)) would be very much appreciated.

  22. "Q: Overlord, So when the T34 becomes premium, will it automatically unlock the 120mm on the T34?

    A: T34 will become premium, there will be nothing to unlock."

    I guess he meant: Does he have to unlock 120mm to get T34 premium with 120mm?

    ReplyDelete
  23. A: T34 will become premium, there will be nothing to unlock.

    - do you think this serious??? so I and lots of others waste a lot of efforts and free xp to unlock every modules on that shit t34????

    ReplyDelete
  24. Q: I guess he meant: Does he have to unlock 120mm to get T34 premium with 120mm?

    A: It will be enough to have a stock T34 in your garage.

    ReplyDelete
  25. "The vehicle practically no one is waiting for".
    Haha nice one overlord

    ReplyDelete
  26. Q:Will players with T34 in the time of revision get a T34 as an premium,and M103 as T9 tank?

    ReplyDelete
  27. What about the update to the Russian tree??

    ReplyDelete
  28. Well, hull armor 100-130mm + 180mm on the turret front. Doesn't sound too massive, but i guess the good sloping of the hull will make up for a lot of it.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Holy jumping Jesus! Great news! Now just waiting for specs and ETA :D

    ReplyDelete
  30. Q: so now i've seen the M103 what about the T110 what will that look like?

    ReplyDelete
  31. If US gets a tank of ´57, I am hoping the Soviets get the Objekt 730/IS-10

    ReplyDelete
  32. What does mean "TBA"?

    ReplyDelete
  33. So, does this mean the tech tree revisions will occur for the US Tree prior to the USSR Tree?

    ReplyDelete
  34. interesting to cope with the VK, E-75 and IS-4

    ReplyDelete
  35. Q: So, does this mean the tech tree revisions will occur for the US Tree prior to the USSR Tree?

    A: Hasn't been decided yet. It can happen at the same time.

    ReplyDelete
  36. This means nothing, it is just a sneak peak. And researching things on the T34 is still a good thing as it will unlock things on the M103 when it replaces the T34.

    ReplyDelete
  37. will the t34 get the 120mm gun as a premium or just the crap 105 ? :(

    ReplyDelete
  38. Any info about the Hull armor (estimated)?

    ReplyDelete
  39. Can you please wait the 1-3 months it'll take me to get to the T34? :D

    ReplyDelete
  40. so i can find the at least a wiki page about the M103 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M103_heavy_tank but i can't seem to find any thing on the T110 does anyone know where i could have a look at what might be coming to this game?

    ReplyDelete
  41. Thanks for finally throwing us a bone, Overlord. :)

    The M103 looks GORGEOUS.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Overlord you are making a HUGE mistake by not releasing the M103 as soon as possible (like 6.8 update), so many people, including me are going to trash you guys so hard for this.... just saying...

    ReplyDelete
  43. Tank specs please....

    ReplyDelete
  44. Is it just me, or does the barrel texture look a little funny?

    ReplyDelete
  45. All I can say is the release better happen BEFORE the russian heavy update, not at the same time as it.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Not playing US tree but nice to see them boys getting a decent looking heavy tank, too.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Overload is there chance that you can confirm if this tank will be in the next 6.7 patch or the patch after this one?

    ReplyDelete
  48. one more question about the future premium t34, will it stay at tier 9 or will it become tier 8?

    ReplyDelete
  49. i need only 40 000xp to T34 so i hope that i be on time to get it premium
    and please buff 105mm T5E1

    ReplyDelete
  50. Q: Can you please wait the 1-3 months it'll take me to get to the T34? :D

    A: Ok, waiting for u, mate.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Any news on the USSR tech revision? It's been in the news for many months now, yet we don't even know the ETA when the American and German trees have already been updated.

    ReplyDelete
  52. from looking at the wikipedia page, apparently the M103 has 100 to 130mm of frontal armor but only 76mm of side armor. Turret mantlet is 250mm and the turret front is 180mm

    Basically

    130-100/76/??
    250-180/76/??

    but of course there might be more than one turret

    ReplyDelete
  53. this will stop me hating oly and devs for a while

    ReplyDelete
  54. Overlord, anything, anything at all on the M58 specs? Speculation has flown that it will be worse then the S-70, or at the other extreme, have the highest penetration with AP, better then BL-10!

    Which is it D:! Give us a sign!

    ReplyDelete
  55. "I am hoping the Soviets get the Objekt 730/IS-10 "

    Yes, Object 730 will be replacement for IS-4

    ReplyDelete
  56. Yea i'd say I'm totally waiting for this! I've love to have some life brought back into the US heavy line.

    ReplyDelete
  57. From what i have read before it should become premium at about Q1 of 2012? right?

    ReplyDelete
  58. Will the M103 have a massive turret armor like T29 and T32 (up to 300mm) or "weak" turret-armor like other natiosn (around/less 200mm)?

    Just want to know if its still a hull-down tank.

    Nevertheless this tank lonks great!
    Cant wait to get it. (and the T34 as premium)

    ReplyDelete
  59. Looks really nice, and I like your comment:
    "The vehicle practically no one is waiting for."

    ReplyDelete
  60. Looks mighty fine! And the 120mm barrel looks like it's ready to kick some ass and take names !!

    Will be waiting for more details on that one.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Q: What guns will M103 able to mount ?
    A: At least the two mentioned above, plus one more.

    Can you give us "non-waiters" a little himt? :-)
    Stock config we know but will this mysterious 3d gun be top or another version of the 105?

    Please pretty please Overlord :-)

    ReplyDelete
  62. I MUST HAVE IT NOW!

    ReplyDelete
  63. BAH! even with this screenshots, devs still failed to take action early. tensions could have not occur, babies could have not cried, does it really have to happen?

    i think this picture is only shown to shut those fags from yesterdays blog. and i wont be surprised if more fags arise to flame overlord again when they announce that ETA will be.

    ReplyDelete
  64. where is the tank,..., all i see is turret

    ReplyDelete
  67. Overlord,why doesen't players who have only german/russian tanks won't receive a premium tank if they have Y tank in garage? This sucks.....

    ReplyDelete
  68. Q: Can you please wait the 1-3 months it'll take me to get to the T34? :D

    A: Ok, waiting for u, mate.

    Kill the questioner! Run him over with the M103!

    ReplyDelete
  69. looks nice as most us tanks will it perform better then the USSR tanks will they ever before any of you see it the nerf stick will be getting a workout

    ReplyDelete
  70. Thanks Overlord, keep up the good work!

    ReplyDelete
  71. Hello Overlord, i see you present
    the M103 with the T5E1. It raise
    a couple of question :

    Q1) Is the 105mm T5E1 going to be the 'starting' gun of the M103 replacing the 90mm T1E2 of the T34 ?

    Q2) In case you take that path, are you going to requalify the T5E1 as a tiers 8 as it has nothing
    better than the german tiers 8 KwK 45 L/52 ?

    Q3) Last but not least, if you requalify the T5E1 gun are you going to review the guns for the T32 and what will be the 'second' gun of the M103 that will help grind the 100k+ exp needed for the 120mm ?

    Those question are pretty important as in the
    actual situation even with the new 'M103', if
    the tank is stuck with the T5E1 the players
    are going to have the exact same problem
    as the T34, as the T5E1 is realy not performing
    as well as the KwK 46 L/68 or the 122mm BL-9 on the other nations as a tiers 9.

    ReplyDelete
  72. DenySpark are you kidding me?
    there ware tons of coments: why do ussr players got T10 for free and another 2 tanks with slots :-D ? why germans got nothing for free by revision...?
    you want it? got T34 omg... it was anounced so soon i make it w/o premium till now IS4 T34 ISU152 GWpanther VK(DB) T44 and you now after 4months or so come and whine you want premium for free... you dont get it cause changes will not be done that way so sorry you did stupid decision and have to pay :-D
    for another posters not capable of reading: first read than ask :-P

    ReplyDelete
  73. Does that mean that t34 owners will get a free premium tank?
    If yes will it be:
    A: Lowe kind premium(that earns a lot of money etc)
    B: Just unique kind of tank that earns silver like other t8 tanks.

  75. Overlord that tank looks awesome!! thanks for the update!!

    ReplyDelete
  76. "The vehicle practically no one is waiting for."

    This is the problem, Devs have no idear how many are waithing for this. I bet they think that no one is waithing for the T30 replacement aswell...

    ReplyDelete
  77. WOW! OL! i can give you a blowjob for making me happy!

  78. I want this so much <3

  79. i love the gun. it looks like the big brother of t-54 gun.

  80. Hello almighty Overlord , can you release some pics of t110 , soon?=)

    ReplyDelete
  81. Q- what does TBA mean?

    A- To Be Announced.

    ReplyDelete
  82. So in other words the stock T34 with that 90mn will be another useless piece of junk right? :)

    ReplyDelete
  83. Nice!

    Could you wait a couple of weeks more to release it ? I'm quite finished with my T32 :)

    ReplyDelete
  84. Just like the game modes release window, the fate of this game will have been sealed by time they get around to releasing this in NA and EU. BF3 is one month out now, so it's over. They chose to ignore:
    - One game mode for over a year
    - Not balancing arty
    - Not limiting arty numbers in mm
    - Not fixing the spotting system
    - Not removing the camo system that gives russian tanks an unfair advantage
    - Heck, just not balancing this game in general with their russian bias.
    - Changing what players got in their box copies of game at the last possible notice

    Good lucking getting people to jump aboard for WoWP and WoBS knowing full well your track record by then. If they don't, then we'll be enlightening everyone on the various forums, as people tend to listen more there than your paid off "reviews" that you post on fucking facebook all the time.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Good to see some screenies of it finally, hopefully we'll see it very soon. I'm very much so sick of the T34, I tried to make it work, but now I just hate the tank in the tier that it's at. I'm going to love it as a premium me thinks!

    ReplyDelete
  86. Q. Are there any plans to increase the speed of the T28 and T95?

    ReplyDelete
  87. >>Could you wait a couple of weeks more to release it ? I'm quite finished with my T32 :)

    Dude, they will not realease it in the closest 0.6.7 (guaranteed) neither in 0.7.0. Looks like it will not appear even in 0.7.0+ (where 1st bunch of French supposed to be released). So it will be X-mas gift.

    >>Ok, waiting for u, mate.
    Looks very like true :-D

    And BTW: guys, T34 w/o 120-mm is not T34 but T29. So don't worry: prem T34 will keep it. Stats is another question...

    ReplyDelete
  88. Well I still like the game and I'm not into the Battlefield series so I'll keep playing this one until something like Borderlands 2 or Diablo 3 comes out. Then all bets are off.

    As for this new US heavy, I like it. I want one. I think I'll start the US heavy grind this weekend during the Avalanche Special. A 100% crew makes all the difference.

    Looking forward to new content, as always, and especially new game modes, camo, and real world physics. Keep the updates coming!

    Regards!

  89. Finally some images of the M103. My fully upgraded T34 is now in storage awaiting it.

    ReplyDelete
  90. Dear Overlord, two questions:

    Q1: Will T34 be Tier 9 or Tier 8 premium tank?
    Q2: What will be the setup (gun, turret, radio) for the T34 premium?

    I really hope it won't be the stock 90mm, cos even with the 105mm it's hard to fight Russian and German heavy tanks (even Lowe), cos of the paper thin hull armor or T34 and lots of dings from the 105mm gun (I didn't even tried 90mm, I already had researched 105mm from the T32).

    Thank you in advance for your prompt answers to my questions.

  93. Let me guess. It's "TBA" because it shares a gun with the T110, and since you're still waiting on information about the T110's classified performance results, that's causing the M103 to go on hold as well. Something like that?

    ReplyDelete
  94. OMGOMGOMG! Jesus that thing looks nice. Cant wait to drive this beast.

    ReplyDelete
  95. Have you played T34 DenySpak?

    I hate the moment I decide to go US heavy line. It was OK till T29. After that it's so painful, I even considered killing myself few times :)

    Lying there :) I considered selling T34 and going some other line (USSR came in mind then). Only the promise of M103 stopped me from doing that.

    Having T34 as premium (if setup doesn't suck too much) will save me money for shrink ;)

    ReplyDelete
  96. Im happy we are getting the M103 but seriously guys, we are going to have to accept the fact that it still will not be able to compete with the russian and german tanks, the developers are unfair and it is never going to change, i have beat myself up over the fact that i was stupid enough to research the american line first. We are never going to win against the ignorance and stupidity of the developers, and thats the sad truth.

    I can say one thing, I don't know how you people run things over there in mother russia but, if you tried pulling your complete and utter bullshit over here in America, it would not fly. Like I said the Devs are too ignorant to see how pissed off the American customers are... truly sad.

    ReplyDelete
  97. For all of us US Heavy players:

    KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.

    WE HAVE UNDERPOWERED GUNS AND ARMOR,BUT OUR STATS
    ARE BETTER THAN ANY OTHER BIAS IN THE GAME.

    Like they say: HIGH SKILL HIGH PREFORMANCE

  98. So many people QQing, American heavies are great, and props to the devs for making different types of heavies for different playing styles. If you can't play them, DON'T. If you can, keep kicking ass and taking names.

  101. I don't understand why all the pissed off T-34 owners don't grind different tanks, especially the tanks they feel are so OP, instead of whining and demanding that they get a better tank than the one they chose. When I first started playing this game, I noticed that the Russian tanks seemed to play better and require fewer upgrades to make them enjoyable. I chose to grind the Russian tech tree and I am not disappointed. The specs for the T-34 were not a mystery and they were available for all to see in the game itself and on the WoT website. So why is everyone so pissed off that they got a tank that underperforms when compared to it's counterparts? Just by looking at the specs you should have been able to figure out that it would take damage from much lower tiers if it where hit in the hull. Instead, you went and did the grind for somewhere around half a million experience points to get a tank that gets slaughtered by tier 7 tanks and then you act like you are surprised by this. It's almost like you are demanding a refund for a bad choice that you made.

    I think that anyone who is willing to put their noses to the grindstone for so long to purchase a tank that is obviously underpowered doesn't deserve to have it replaced by something better and then have their garbage T-34 turn into a premium tank.

    I'll take an E-75, VK4502, or IS-4 over the T-34 any day, and I've known that since I first looked at the tech trees. Why didn't all the whiners see that the other tanks are better? Just because you own a tier 9 tank does not mean that it is equal to all other tier 9 tanks. Look at the tech trees and check out the specs on a tank before you decide to spend the next couple/few months grinding for it.

    That being said, I'm going to grind for a T-34 if for no other reason than to take advantage of the "compensation" that will be given to all the poor T-34 owners.

    Thanks Wargaming for yet another free tank!

    ReplyDelete
  102. Haha, gotta love prepubescent rage.


    I've read that this tank doesn't have the engine power that it "needs" any chance that the HP would be increased above the 810 that it had?

    Heavy tanks comparison:

    Russian tank = Easy mode
    German tank = Normal mode
    American tank = Hard mode

    to be good at USA heavy tanks, you must be refering to experienced hardcore players.

    give newbies USA heavy tanks, it will be a suicide. but newbies with russian will make it normal mode, get it?

  105. I love it when people cry that things are overpowered. I have heard that EVERY single branch is overpowered from different people. The nations are balanced. Arty is balanced (except for numbers, sometimes). TDs are balanced. There is nothing wrong with the matchmaker. If you don't like it, go make a better game.

  106. "give newbies USA heavy tanks, it will be a suicide. but newbies with russian will make it normal mode, get it? "


    I would hope that if you can make it to a tier 9 that you wouldn't be "newbies" any more.

  108. on second turret is "ears" same as have T29, nice weakspots

    ReplyDelete
  109. When I started playing WoT I went US heavy line cos they looked nice. I was too noob to understand what the stats mean and to compare them. There was nowhere a reference that Russian Heavy line is EASY, German is NORMAL, US is HARD. As I said before, until T29 everything was fine, it become harder after that. Also I would like too see a hardcore player with T34 and 105 gun to go one on one against, lets say Lowe and win (against Russian and German Tier 9 I believe it's impossible to win, unless T34 is hidden and firing from the side or rear).

  111. Well sadly,T34 gots the 2nd best stats of all T9 Heavys...And yes we are underpowered so what?

    I will always kill any IS4,MM in a fair 1v1 battle.I can bet that every single T34 driver can own an IS4 driver.You gotta understand something,unlike the so-called EasyMode on IS4,where you just run into people and kill them,T34 requires skill,and big skill to play it.

    Do you know why T34 gots one of the best stats?Look at its drivers.All hardcore grinders,who played through so-so T1 HT,mediocre M6-who arent so bad,but SSSR bias gots the overpowered KV and KV-3,an blessing called T29,hugger called T32 and a T34.
    I admire those people,look what did they had to go through?

    I personally have an T34 with T30 researched,without premium and KV.
    I feel so overpowered in my KV,i can easily kill T7 tanks,even killed T9 can be penetrated on sides without any trouble.

    But still I prefer my T1 Heavy.Asking why?You gotta have brains and skill to play US Heavys.Its not easy like SSSR,but hell you learn how to play.

    Come at me with your t9 heavys,I'll kill everyone in fair 1v1,with over 50% hp on my side.

    Well sadly,T34 gots the 2nd best stats of all T9 Heavys...And yes we are underpowered so what?

    I will always kill any IS4,MM in a fair 1v1 battle.I can bet that every single T34 driver can own an IS4 driver.You gotta understand something,unlike the so-called EasyMode on IS4,where you just run into people and kill them,T34 requires skill,and big skill to play it.

    Do you know why T34 gots one of the best stats?Look at its drivers.All hardcore grinders,who played through so-so T1 HT,mediocre M6-who arent so bad,but SSSR bias gots the overpowered KV and KV-3,an blessing called T29,hugger called T32 and a T34.
    I admire those people,look what did they had to go through?

    I personally have an T34 with T30 researched,without premium and KV.
    I feel so overpowered in my KV,i can easily kill T7 tanks,even killed T9 can be penetrated on sides without any trouble.

    But still I prefer my T1 Heavy.Asking why?You gotta have brains and skill to play US Heavys.Its not easy like SSSR,but hell you learn how to play.

    Come at me with your t9 heavys,I'll kill everyone in fair 1v1,with over 50% hp on my side.

  117. Heavy tanks comparison:

    Russian tank = Easy mode
    German tank = Normal mode
    American tank = Hard mode

    to be good at USA heavy tanks, you must be refering to experienced hardcore players.

    give newbies USA heavy tanks, it will be a suicide. but newbies with russian will make it normal mode, get it?

    i made a shot explaination and you made a long one, please look again and understand that what im refering and your saying is likely the same.

    Is the turret that huge or is it just a smallish heavy? Pics side by side with other tanks would be awesome.

    It's about the same size as other US heavies, the turret is just massive to facilitate mounting of the ludicrously powerful 120mm m58.

    If US gets a tank of ´57, I am hoping the Soviets get the Objekt 730/IS-10

    Yes, it is a newer, better gun. It has a higher velocity than any gun currently in-game, I think. The third gun will probably be an intermediate choice, the prototype T122 120mm gun to match the prototype turret in those first set of screenshots. A nice man on the american heavy tank forum dug up some info for us...

    ReplyDelete
  138. Not enough people seem to be aware of this.

    The T34 when it goes premium will still keep its 120mm gun [and become the most heavily armed Tier 8 heavy]. It will almost certainly get other attributes nerfed, but its a free Tier 8 heavy, so we can't complain too much. It's still getting an awesome gun.

    And 2. You don't need to upgrade the T34 at all to get the premium version. A stock T34 will become a complete premium tier 8 T34.

  141. Has there been anything definitive on point 2 Tupinambis? I don't recall Overlord saying anything about it, and while I hope it's true, there really is nothing stopping them from only allowing 120mm armed T34s to be premiumized.

    ReplyDelete
  142. Overlord: Is the "one more" gun that the M103 can mount an improved 105mm perhaps, like the Pershing has an improved 90mm with bit more penetration and accuracy? What ever it is, can you mount it without mounting the top turret first?

    ReplyDelete
  143. If there are 3 gun choices for M103 with one being 105mm gun from T29 and one being 120mm T58, then I assume that the third gun would be 120mm T53, the gun currently used by T34.
    Most interesting question now is what are the stats for the new 120mm T58.
    So please indulge us Overlord and give some info on the stats of the new 120mm.

    The third gun is likely the 120mm T122 that was seen in a couple older screenshots of the M103. It's the gun that was given to the prototype M103 (called the T43), which you the turret of in the screens up there. The main visual difference is that the T122 has the bore evacuator up the barrel a bit, closer to the tank. It was based on the T53 found on the T34.

    I am absolutely certain I read it somewhere. I thought it was somewhere here on the blogspot, but I can't find it now.

    Just to be safe though, I'd ask again on the Q&A threads.

    ReplyDelete
  149. I have been grinding for a long time in my T34, and i am like 28k exp from my 120mm gun now, and so far it has been a pain in the ass.

    1. credit gain in T34 blows,
    2. suvivability in this tank blows (you got non existing armor Leopard can pen you from sides/rear and only your gun mantle can take a few hits.

    3. the Gun it self 105mm BLOWS, its pen r WAY to random, i cant pen any Tier9 tank from front, and IS4/E75/Vk45 is a 75% chance of bounce on side and rear. the acc of the gun r not very good, its dammage is mediocre, and its pen is rediculus bad.

    I have played all tanklines upto Tier9 cept KM, and km i had upto tier8, and imo is Tier8 US+Russian/KM very ballanced, cept the sad/bad 105mm gun for US really sucks compared to the counterparts + you have to use the same 105mm for 110k exp on your tier9 tank. Get used to hearing YOU BOUNCED/that one bounced/that one didnt go truth. or DING/you dammaged him(but no dammage done) sounds and effekts. (the 105mm on a tier8/9 tank r hopelessly bad.


    Also non existing armor and to huge tanks with semi bad speeds(compared to is3/4). makes the tank almost useless for anything but a good hulldown situation or sniping mode(wich the 105mm sucks at).

    At least make the M110 good and having usefull armor, also Fuck off with calling it 279 frontal armor when its only the gun mantel that has this amount, the rest of the turret has like 127 non sloaped, @ anything pens it. (ALL THO Turret armor R SUPOSED to make up for USELESS hull armor in US tank heavy line).. fucking make them compareable. Yours Adaa Beta WOT player, whos pissed about unfair ballance of 80% of the ingame tanks.

  153. "The vehicle practically no one is waiting for."

    Thats not true... i liked the T34 during beta pretty much after i got the 120mm. The only problem with the T34 is that you have to grind 100k+ xp with T5E1 gun wich is awesome on tier 7, good on tier 8 and absolutely useless on tier 9.

  156. When are the battles in this game going to split into different tank "generations" or historical battles?
    Some of the tanks in the tech tree have never met on the real battlefields. Like this one, also a tank from the cold war era... 1957-1974

    ReplyDelete
  157. Looking at the M103's historical armor values, they're very unimpressive. 250 turret, 130 hull. Against upper tier guns, it won't be stopping or bouncing much of anything. And it only does around 30 kmh.

    Will it make up for having the worse physical stats of any t9 heavy by having the best gun? The T34's high RoF gun is really underwhelming, especially for its xp cost. I hope you aren't going to make it another high rate of fire, low damage gun on a glass hull. Those just do not work in competitive t9-10 play.

  158. The T34 is more sexy than this =P

    ReplyDelete
  159. Overload I see that the 120 is a new american 120 and probably nothing like the 120 on the t34, can we get a idea of the possible states this gun may receive such as Pen. XXX-XXX, Damage XXX-XXX, and accuracy X.XX-X.XX, with the X's to be replaced with actual numbers and close but not exact to the actual stats, 2.) This tank shouldnt be buff or nerfd if you guys are taking this long to put it in to effect, American HT's are known for poor armor but it need to a good fun to be up to par with the E-75,Ausf B, IS-4 HT's

    ReplyDelete
  160. Look at the front armor slope - it will be at last hard to penetrate from the front. that is what I really expect from T9 tank.

    ReplyDelete
  161. Slope is irrelevant for the most part, at least when your armor values are that low. Believe me, you'll be penning M103s pretty easily.

  162. This tanks look COOL, but im afraid it has the same aweful hull armor as T34.
    I am also afraid that T34 going to be a tier8 premium with that pointless 105mm...

  166. i just have to say...
    1. that turret is so huge it will be impossible to owershot it for artys :-D so another arty magnet :-D
    2. ding ding from turret? i thing personaly sides will be pretty much penetrable at least at higher tier from sides so flank and destroy...
    3. yes hull will be nicely sloped in front but to got this lower plate have to be like lets say asia so noone miss it :-D maybe even is4 dont and that really is something :-D:-D but we know how to face tank and let him fire in gun mantlet :-D
    4. lets hope for gun that pay for this it is nice at least so enjoy and maybe elevation of gun will be incredible so lets rush hills
    5. yes i saw somewhere that T34 got (very possibly) 120mm gun after it becomes premium so premium with strongest gun? maybe
    dont worry, be happy :)

I really pray that this replacement tank is as good as the pershing replacing the awfull t-23. Please, give it decent stats and a replacement gun to the tier-7 105 until you get to the 120, PLEASE!!!

  172. I'm pretty sure the T34s gun will not retain the stats it has at the moment.

    Overlord stated several times, that the M103 is going to come out this year, but the T110 will come out in 2012. They are still working on a release roadmap, but it's taking more time than they thought.

  180. "TBA," you're such an absolute joke. There's no reason for you morons to delay it any further, you're actually losing money trying to get people to buy your crappy tier 8 premiums by giving them more time to grind up to the t34 and get one for free, rather than shell out for your awful mess of a game. Besides that, the M103 is going to be worse off than the 34 was. So seriously, what's with the massive delays behind it? I would imagine you people would enjoy screwing over more tanks. You certainly seemed to enjoy it whenever one of your little eurobrat pets whines that it's overpowered (which is often because you've forced a player to play smarter than them due to a shitty nerf, which must mean you have to nerf the tank again! How dare they get smart in your game!).

    While you're at it, how about you come up with another bullshit answer for why you've decimated the tier 5 lights. Changing the credits earned from 20K to 10K and increasing repair cost from 2K to 10K certainly isn't balance, though maybe in your vodka infused neanderthalic minds that might be.

    Of course you could probably blame all of this on Storm, your resident Manchild. Though honestly Overlord, everyone knows you're just as stupid too.

    ReplyDelete
  181. Guys what are you saying? 105 on US heavys is similar to german t8 gun, no way its a t7 gun, you got it on t29 but seriously, t29 is overpowered with this gun. Then - you got to grind 84k on it, and on VK4502P you have to grind exactly same amount on slightly better penetrating gun but if you prefer to grind straight to the Maus you have to grind it on the similar gun to american 105 cause its only top gun on VK4502A! So stop whining german Maus line got the same problem.

  182. "And btw... I hate to play my current T34 with only a 105mm cannon, I have no chance even against a Loewe."

    Its soumd ridiculous to me, Lowe got weak hull and slower gun than 105, I can beat Lowe with long 8,8 with that same penetration, moreover Lowe is slow in rotating (once in my IS i was dueling with T34 and finally he killed me but i left him with 5% of hps but IS is far more agile than Lowe) and can be beated by T29 - T29 can and T34 with same gun can't?

  184. As per the Russian Q&A the NEITHER the M103 or T110 will be released until AFTER the french tanks because "all of the testing team is working on the french tanks and don't have time for the American heavy's.

    ReplyDelete
  185. I also love this ASSHOLE remark from the Russian Dev. If this does not CLEARLY show that they don't give two shits about their player base I don't know what would.

    SerB had once said that the M103 (and, if they get the model done in time, the T110) is possible in the very next patch after 6.7 if talks with Bigworld are delayed. So here's a question - what should we wait for first - multi-clustering or the incredibly long-awaited American heavies? And why don't you want to introduce the M103 separately from the T110, it's a lot more needed in the game given the T34's awful armor for a Tier 9? No-one fears the T34, even the T1 Heavy can farm some XP off it. At least the T30 has an uber-cannon to frighten people off.

    A: It's not as if the M103 has meaningfully better armor than the T34. Why wait for it with such desperation?

    please read his comment again and the answer is there.

    i searched over the net a month ago, the m103 varies at 130 - 160 armor, if they would give us 160 it will be less 10 points than 170 of is4,

    i will search again to give some link,

  188. T34 is good with 120mm gun, you can go 1v1 with is4 and win, but with vk and e75 you will still bounce a lot. so you will have to use your speed and try to get around them.

  189. Hey overlord- when the T34 is made premium, will it receive the same treatment as the gold-bought premium tanks? What I mean is will you be able to grind credits in the premium T34 like you can in, say, the Lowe

  190. This is this M103.
    and some information about what armour it had

    The M103 heavy tank served the United States Army and the US Marines during the Cold War. Until the development of the M1A1 in the mid 1980s, it was the heaviest and most heavily-armed tank in US service. The M103 was manufactured at the Detroit Arsenal Tank Plant and the first units were accepted in 1957.

    Armor:

    Hull front: 100 mm to 130 mm (4 in to 5.3 in)
    Hull side: 76 mm (3.1 inch)
    Hull top: 25 mm(1 in)
    Turret mantlet: 250 mm (10.2 in)
    Turret front: 180 mm (7.34 in)
    Turret side: 76 mm (3.1 in)
    Turret top: 38 mm (1.55 in)
