Increasing the maximum possible BR for modern vehicles

In the upcoming BR changes we plan to increase the highest possible BR for ground vehicles up to 10.3 where the most technologically advanced vehicles will find themselves.

 

Modern ground vehicles are significantly different to the usual understanding of a tank - an armoured, armed but simple and mass produced vehicle. In modern times, a big emphasis is placed on technological superiority - thermal imagers, complex dynamic protection, technological shells and transfer to over protection on the front part of the tank. We recreate all these features in War Thunder for modern vehicles. The implementation of thermal imaging in update 1.91 has contributed to a significant increase in the efficiency of the top ranked vehicles which are already represented in the game and have these features.

 

Under these conditions we have made an informed decision - in the upcoming update, the most technologically advanced vehicles will get an increase in BR by 0.3 which will allow them to fight against equally efficient enemies more often in the environment of modern battles. At the same time, thanks to such a small increase we will not lose the importance of variety in battle.

 

This experiment has become possible due to the increased number of players playing in top tier battles. We will however monitor the statistics of time required to enter a battle, vehicle performance, and will implement further BR changes if required to provide a comfortable joining battle period for you.

This is a great step in the right direction, but can you decompress top tier air as well? F-4s should not face F Sabres, which would crush 7.7 if downtiered.

A great change to finally see happening. Hopefully we'll see the max B.R increasing further in future updates to help with decompression further down the tech trees.

Good start, but this needs to be implemented for top tier jets too. Also, please don't retract this in favor of queue times, I beg you.

I like the idea higher BR in ground vehicles but not why not to 12.0 (available in custom battles) as currently the game needs some decompression in BR keeping in mind all the modern helicopters being added in game, fighting not so modern helicopters and also tanks. Modern jets and the way more fast ones yet to come

Why on earth is the OF-40 MTCA moved up to 9.0 when it doesn't have access to thermal vision, yet the AMX-30 Super and Leopard 1 L/44 both do, with better ammo, and are only 8.7?

Because it has a better engine than the OF-40 Mk. 2

Step in the right direction, that's for sure. Probably the most important thing we've been waiting for for half a year or something.. But, needs to be 11.0 or so in my opinion, and many of the 8.7/9.0 MBT's being moved up. Especially those in 8.7 with über pen and thermals. Same goes for the jets obviously, fighting mach 2 jets in 9.0's.. :/
