Helpful information for players looking to specialize in light tank play. "Don't shoot unless you really need to" is one of the hardest things to stick to when playing a tier 1 or higher tier light who is spotting but hasn't yet been detected.

Add anther one, for all the other team mates: " Don't shoot the light tank just because it doesn't want to suicide just because you think light = scout = suicide rush ". Well, for random setups anyways.

Proper play with a light tank is a hard art to master, hopefully this video will be insightful for some of you guys :)

Ohhh god ...hope ppls will not use light from now because will ruin our fun:)) It's so much fun to fight against 5 heavy tanks on promorovka when i'm in amx 13/90:))

 

One rule  in THM (my team) is: never go in battle without at least one amx 13/90.

"This mean the t1 is the only tank which can destroy an enemy in mere moments".

 

I'm pretty sure I've done the same in a Leichttraktor in team battle, considering it has a 12 round magazine which does 132 total damage?

Actually Leichttraktor can be also used. Sometimes it is even better than t1c

all I hear is " its all in the stats, the T1 has no competition" (aka dump the rest)

 

and 

 

"there arn't many to chose from, the amx-13-90 and the WZ-132" combined with "but the WZ doesn't carry a autoloader... (some  mumbo jumbo)..so the AMX-13-90 it is"

 

and I think... he is right, and that's the reason hardly anyone bothers to play lights other then the over-gunned autoloaders...and I ain't even talking about the 7v7 mode. the general tips for light tanks he's giving are solid..but its buried under a heap of 7v7 combat talk..because really..imagine your a new player and you just hit one of those blasted T4 lights. now try to remember what tips he gave that a solo random can use..

13 90 is a game changer, it is so extremely easy to win a game when they don't have one.

3-4 type of heavy tanks and 1 type of light tanks to use, sounds boring

I wil never ever understand this kind of gamemode

It's so much easier to win a 7v7 team battle, if you have 1-2 AMX 13 90's. Their mobility, view range, camo value and fire power is just too good of a combination to skip.

When firing though, be 100% sure that you hit with every shot. Avoid shooting at anything while moving, unless you are doing a drive-by at very close proximity.

 

The T1's are also very important and we've seen an increase in their usage by our opponents. Many tactical decisions rely on T1 scouting info and like Dorjan said in the video, they many times relay a huge enough advantage to win the game.

Try to avoid killing opposite T1 tanks with the 6-clip autoloaders, if possible. The reloadtime is too huge to give the opponent an advantage.
