  • I am sure it will balance down as it pulls in more votes, as there are many tanks far nicer then mine on here. I just noticed the tank from india in 2 only has a few votes as well. So it must just be a issue of a handful of high votes, rating it high, and as lower votes balance it out, it will come down the rungs fast, I am sure. MrWaxhead avatar MrWaxhead
