I know much focus its on the commander revamp right now, chich i really like what they bring there and think it will be gr8 once released.
However, i wanted to discuss The Comet tank thats been left out in the cold pretty much latly by taking nerf after nerf without any really compensation, making it a pretty lackluster and ineffective tank at the moment.
If we break down some of the needed nerf we can agree on thats been needed i would say those are:
I think those wear the necesarry changes it needed. But here are some changes that they could left untouched and why:
"Reduce rotation rate from 36 to 32 to prevent crush". This made the Tank a bit buggy in term of commanding it, im sure it is something wrong with the stearingmechanics on this one. If you try commanding the Cromwell, which recived the same changes, you can certainly feel the different. I lost more comets that stops and rotating all of the suddenly than in actually battle since this change was made.
Fix: Bring back the rotation rate to prevent it from start spinning around and give it medium/light crush instead. "bring back the turrent rotate to 40 again along with that"
"Main gun range from 50 to 45". No need for, you have Panther, jagdpanzer4, Tiger all not bollow 50 in range. Since all those axis tanks in favour of penetraion over the Comet, and panther and tiger healthwise, i dont see the reason it was necussary. It already got its scatter increased from 3.2 to 6.4, horizontal scatter from 6 to 7.5, which are the most reason why its so bad on killing inf. Dont forget that both panther variant now have the best coaxial/hull mg in the game while the comet has the worst..
Fix: Bring back the range to 50 and bring back the max distance scatter to 4.2 again. It will bring it more in line with the churchills and other late game tanks in term of effectiveness on inf and cost.
On top of this the war speed ability has been rendless pretty much useless also. I would rather see that being bring back to +35 again and for a cost like the blitzkrig. I rather see this changes being done than just "drop the price" of it. It cost 185 fuel and should be more effective than it is right now i think.
