Gnomon: Hey, everyone! I have a bit of news I'd like to discuss with you regarding the Object 268 Version 4, as it is one of the most discussed tanks this year. Some people (mostly those driving it in battle) love this TD, while others dislike seeing it on the battlefield. Still, everyone agrees it’s well armored and mobile. We’ve been monitoring the 268 v4 battle statistics ever since it was released and kept close track of its stats. We do see that the tank is overly efficient in combat, and we are going to do our best to address this. Excellent armor helps it survive to the end of battles and deal more damage than it should. Mobility allows the 268 v4 to reach map sweet spots quickly, and its aiming parameters let it shoot almost right after stopping. So, today we’re launching the Supertest for the Object 268 Version 4 with updated technical stats. It will keep characteristics/traits of the original: protection, mobility, and a gun that can hit very hard at close (and medium) range. However, it won’t be as powerful as it is now. How are we going to achieve this? First, we correct the armor by weakening the vulnerable areas. Currently, these areas don’t live up to their names: when you hit a hatch or the lower front plate of the 268 v4, the chance of penetration is far too low. So, the commander hatches and the LFP of the Supertest version will be thinner than the current tank. Second, we reduced the mobility and the aiming parameters slightly. The horsepower is lowered by 10%, and the aiming time is increased to 2.3 seconds. To compensate, the hull traverse dispersion is also lowered. We understand the 268 v4 is popular with the community, and we’ll do our best to keep the gameplay similar while making the balance fairer. This is the first round of Supertests, so the Object 268 Version 4's stats may be changed in the future, depending on the results. So please follow the news, and be sure to let us know what you think of the changes! Thank you and see you on the battlefield!
