IMPROVED EQUIPMENT - NOT AS BAD AS IT LOOKS


With update 9.19 comes Ranked Mode, which allows you to earn Improved Equipment using the bonds you gain through participating in this mode. While it's not a perfect system, only rewarding those with current Tier 10s and the ability to dedicate time. There has been a lot of negativity surrounding this Improved Equipment and while I do not defend it, I do hope that you can come to see that it's not as awful as it sounds.

Lets look at a few examples using the Gun Rammer and Improved Gun Rammer. I have simplified the numbers to make the math easier to calculate and read;

GR = Credit bought Standard Gun rammer 10%
IGR = Bond bought Improved Gun rammer 12.5%



As you can see the Improved Gun Rammer only really starts to effect the tanks with long reloads, anything under 10 seconds is going to see very small improvements. While you can argue it is better than what a majority of player will be using, it's only really effective if your able to fire again the moment you have reloaded.

Now lets see how this translates to damage-per-minuet, again I will simplify the numbers;

GR = Credit bought Standard Gun rammer 10%
IGR = Bond bought Improved Gun rammer 12.5%



I think we can close with a conclusion now, while it sounds bad, in theory it's not awful. The numbers are small, if we look at the damager-per-minuet increase, it gives very little advantage. Improved equipment will sure be used in high level clan wars and tournaments no doubt, but if you don't have it or have the time and patience, your not really loosing to much.
