Should Churchills get their 280armor back after price nerf?

Relic is currently busy clubbing the UKF hard, as a only allied faction who could stand toe to toe to the the Aixs late game party, the core late-game unit AKA Churchill have been combo-nerfed hard meanwhile those glaring holes such like AEC/Sexton remain unchanged.

I played lots of matches in preview with friends alike, do feel the churchill now is a huge and risky investment and more even so after the OKW became resource tax-free, the OKW panther became the nemesis of those poor Churchills.

For me, the fuel cost from 150 to 180 is already dramatic, the old 1600HP is arguably too good for a damage sponge, but perhaps it should gets its 280 armor value back, and make it more resilient to non-uber anti tank guns(AKA pak43, 128mm)


and, I do feel all the long nerf list of the UKF might be a little bit rational? Plus, I do think underpowered AEC/Sexton and no projectile for 77HV/17pdr/firefly really needs to be looked at rather than a nerf fest.

Let's not bring user nationalities into this. Just because I'm from XXX doesn't mean I want YYY to not get buffs.

It seems like you didnt play that much axis.
The churchill is still pretty damn good... cost increase is definitely needed

If there are "glaring holes" then the argument should be in the sake of covering the holes, NOT compensation via other imbalances.

40 armor value IMHO can't be that "imbalances" after the price nerf.

ignoring the fact that OKW now is tax-free? The panther and even a JT is reachable even in 2v2 now.

and setting the armor to 280 will solve the problems against the JT?

Combinend arms with churchills and paks should do the job... the churchill is still pretty good at soaking damage... the big tank hunters will penetrate him anyways - as it should be...

JT got moved to Schwerer Panzer Headquarter which is a big buff for all UKF medium tanks... If you still want to use the churchill use it combined with the UKF AT Guns - although they get a mp increase they are still pretty damn strong... should beat a Panther without any problems.

After the patch the churchill is in the right spot imo... and yes I played enough Brits and the chruchill is definitely too strong right now.. especially the croc cost increase to 180 fuel is definitely needed!

if the churchill can still be a meat-shield as it was intended to be thats fine by me otherwise i find it frustrating that axis get all if not most of the meat-shield/get-out-of-jail card tanks

I guess it should. Relic went the long way of nerfing every single thing in ukf and it would be ok if not huge buffs axis got. Either one or another or what we will get is just a swap of imbalance.

No, it health should be nerfed further to 1280 and cost decreased to compensate.
