If WG want to nerf something I wish they'd nerf the KV1.

 

:amazed: Nerf the KV 1 ? Now that's something which has never been said on this forum before .....

Bushka is just another opinion no better no worse than anyone else here. I watched that vid and it was interesting as many of his are but I don’t use them as strategy guides or the definitive point on a subject. I do find the constant “I did this damage and I did that damage” slightly annoying. Let’s not forget he is also platooning with unicums/super unicums not 40% ers.
Again turn off in game chat then you never need worry about being told to do anything.
If every Deathstar camps spawn shouldn’t people by now be learning tactics to deal with that. You have to be Arty safe on console you need to be 183 safe on Blitz. The spawn is shown on every map so if that’s where they sit you can avoid direct line of site. However I am fairly confident not all 183 players are playing that way and are moving around.
The problem with any community streamers is they are heard by WG while we the majority who don’t have a you tube presence are ignored. WG should pay more attention here.

To be honest sometimes I wonder if WG even listens to the Community Contributors...

Wait a minute. Everyone complains about 183s camping... but won't a mobility nerf just encourage not moving?

They dont - Bushka is hardly controversial and basically toes the WG line but even he has disagreed with a lot of stuff that WG has done. Plenty of other CC's have been far more vocal in the past and have ended up moving on in disgust at the game.

I agree with what you said . The 183 is my most played tank . I win half my games in it and lose the other half . I play the 183 according to the team formation , the map and how the rest of the team is playing . In the beginning yes , there are certain camping positions I go to but I would go to these position in just about any other TD . I would go to these camping positions even if I was in a Russian TD or a Jageru or a Grille . These initial positions aren't specific to the 183 . After the game develops a bit and you are no longer getting shots from your initial position or get spotted then you obviously move . There are very few people usually those who simply do not how to play the game , who continue staying in the same camping position . These guys are usually the last to die and have very poor win rates . These players would also do the same even if they were in a Grille . bka's constantly repeated view in all of his 183 videos that majority of 183 drivers simply camp in spawn is utterly false . Since he has access to the developers and since devs do get influenced by popular utubers his opinion does have an effect . Especially when he makes the same rants over and over again . I also disagree with his opinion and advocacy of what he calls " dynamic " gameplay . He basically wants a game environment in which awesome players in their Russian mt wolf packs can smash the average and bad players on the red team . Well everyone is not good enough to dominate the game in an Obj 140 . The 183 empowers the average player . Average wr players like me get to have fun while playing the 183 . We still lose but at least we get to enjoy the big damage hits before we die . The game should not be catered to the few elite players who are good at playing mediums and lights . Besides if you are that good then why don't you take it up as a challenge ? The 183 is not a carry tank . It is massively team dependent . If your team plays poorly it is very difficult for a 183 to come back in the game . It is also the priority target number 1 . If a 183 is spotted people will ignore everything else and target it first . I also object to his behavior of not spotting targets for the 183 . He says something in the video like " I'm in a Leopard and the 183 wants me to spot targets for him " . What else do you want to do in a Leopard ? You want the 183 to spot for you ? I'll tell you exactly what he wants to do in a Leopard . He wants to get on the flanks in a farm position and farm damage on all the lit up targets . So B'ka is okay with using other tanks to spot targets for him while driving a medium but feels a TD asking for spotted targets is completely wrong ?  He has shown this unsportsman like behavior in other videos as well where he refused to spot targets for the TD's .When I play a medium or a light or even a heavy at times I love spotting targets for the TD's . Finally the 183 adds variety to the game which is good . When you know there is an unspotted big monster at the back it adds to the thrill of the game . The game would be boring without unique tanks like the 183 .

Keep playing your 183 bro I see no issue with this tank any more than any other tank. If we get totally serious Russian bias is a bigger issue.
I agree with what you say about dynamic gameplay. It can’t all be that way or why bother having these super slow TD’s at all. I enjoy the patience required to play AT2 and we can’t call that dynamic.
I play leopard like a lunatic racing everywhere spotting everything and then trying to wreck as many tanks as I can. Same with AMX ELC Bis
They are designed to spot. When I go up the tiers I will continue playing this way. It’s got me to 60% wr and no tank under 50%wr.
I will be aiming for 183 and I will happily nuke people from spawn till I need to move.

I agree Bushka doesn’t just espouse WG virtues. This game is very unique ( best way I can describe it) and I love and hate it in equal measure but ultimately no matter what WG do I’ll suck it up. I will however come here and b**** about the stuff I hate and occasionally mention what I like... very occasionally lol

I gotta say, I agree with you. Variety is what makes Blitz so interesting; unique tanks make it even more so.

Come on Munky, isn't that an overreaction?

 

Mods - w.t.f? Can't we criticise WG at all? This isn't North Korea f.f.s.

 

BTW in case anyone was wondering - the 'Removed' was 'High class escorts' :trollface:
