News of the rebalance has just been added to the New Moon: Tame the Dragons announcement. Specifics for the rebalance are not yet available, so don't miss this chance to get the  Blaze WZ 135G FT while the New Moon missions are still available!

Really WG?  Your timing leaves a lot to be desired.  If I had know you'd buff it, I would have actually done the grind.  Not happy.

 Elphaba, can you ask the balancing team to buff this TD in patch 3.6, as path 3.7 is around 1.5 months from now!!!

 

This TD is clearly underpowered at the moment, and it is a big ask for us to with held playing this tank until patch 3.7. Let's face it, no one is interested in playing an underpowered tank.....

WG needs to put down some firm stats if they expect people to buy it in anticipation of a buff.

Yeah, the 135 was the far easier grind and with 112 needing people to run tier 10 and essentially not miss a single set, a lot of people would have not bothered with the grind at all (or just did some for the stage rewards).

I don't think timing of the buff is a big issue, but the actual buffed stats are.  They need to release it ASAP, i.e. within the next two days.  This is when people decide whether they will go for the 112 or the 135, and for people to decide whether they will do the last little push to get as much fangs as possible.

 

This vagueness about a buff is just a joke.

 

(for me personally, I would much prefer a TD for grinding TD crew skills, but there is no way I would go for it instead of the 112 without some solid numbers, especially since 112 seems to be a pretty solid tier 8 premium)

I actually don't have the specifics myself so as much as I'd like to provide them, I cannot. :(

If WG is concerned about over buffing the tank and making it too OP.  They can buff it in stages, just look at the raw DPM numbers when compared to other tier 7TDs.  There is just no comparsion at this stage.  Yes, a turret is great, its mobility is good.  But if you can give the T25/2, a turreted TD with decent mobilty a DPM of 2470, surely you can give the 135 at least 2k.  Or if the 122-44, a mobile turretless TD with pretty solid frontal armor and the same 122mm has 2430, surely you can give the 135 at least 2k.  Seriously, at the current 1669 is even worse than the IS at 1854.

 

Just bump the DPM to something half reasonable ASAP, e.g. something around 2k DPM, then move from there.

I will go for the 135 as I needed more TDs for crew training. Hope WG buff it to a reasonable level.

 

Should be a fun tank after the buff (gun handling and DPM)

u know.... somehow i think this is all part of wgs plan to reap gold all the way....

2 event tanks - 1good, 1 shitty.

most players go to grind 112 without second thoughts cuz even 'bushka' says 135 isnt worth it.

then at the end of the grinding event, boom!

135 will get buffed!

making players consider using gold to skip the grind of 135 and getting it.

they wont even give us exact stats how the tank would get buffed.

its just 'its gonna get buff in 3.7'

and players who hope this tank would get buffed decently might cry when wg goes '135s gun reload time was decreased by 0.2 seconds :) '

This is another lesson learn, NEVER press 'complete' on anything until the very end.  Someone mentioned on the forum awhile back, and it makes more and more sense now.  

 

I only complete up to stage 3 and stopped, I want to wait and see what happens at the very end... now I have a chance for a free tank that 'might' be decent.

 


 

Good luck on the battlefield!

Typical for big software company, they will have multiple development teams working on different releases.

 

Development team focusing on R3.6 has already completed all their development and post-QA bug fixes.  If they make any more last minute changes, they need to completely re-test everything, which might further delay launch of new material that might be 'time sensitive'.  Most big software company would have another team working on the next release as soon as their current major release is stabled.  For example, once R3.5.xxx are stable, this development team would move into R3.7.  While R3.6 team is on stand-by for their completion and get ready for their release launch.


 

Good luck on the battlefield!

I bet they are waiting to get solid stats first before they make the decision on how much buff is needed on the Blaze

ehhh well i have both of those premuim tanks and RIGHT NOW i can say the tank need 2 things that REALLY NEED TO BE BUFFED 1. hp WHY does it only have 950 when only one tier 7 td has the same hp but with higher dpm. even HESLIN has more hp!!! 2. reload.  12.2 sec reload with all provisions (food) and equipment (gun rammer , (why no fan) ) for just 400 dpm +,- .I'm getting pissed with it. looking forward to the buff. -_-

No fan (vents) needed for this open top tank, smoke will dissipate naturally.

Maybe it should have sun shade equipment option...

I guest there working on the best way to buff it to make it fair. They've  already release to other over powered premium tanks in this tier they probably don't want to creat another. As fare as I know they don't nerf premiums, eg. With kenny they just removed it from sale to solve its problems.

Huh that would be cool to have sun shades instead of the Vents equipment ,and i dont think that WG will remove it from sale snice a few players already have it and u cant just remove it u have to replace it so the best thing for WG is to buff it and i really wanna now if its still worth it otherwise im just gonna put it in my garage and use filter to forget about it or just sell it.  Didnt really understand why i used gold to get the blaze at all but the Glacial was really worth it thou!!!!
