"Vehicle changes:

  • Upper limit for the range of battles for Tiers IV to VII light tanks reduced."

Thats from the patch notes...

 

But....

 

I Just had a game in a M5 Stuart (TIER 4) fighting tier 7 tanks, I only bought it back (to grind for the Chaffee) because of the new MM for light tanks, is this short sighted non sniping weak as water piece of dung considered to be "OP"? or is WG making it up as they go along?

they took it off of tier 8 games, same as the luchs etc so you still get scout mm it's just not so bad as it was

If M5 Stuart is OP, then think about T-50 in T7 battles.

I'm not quite sure what the point of that was.

 

If you're playing a tier 4 scout, you're just as dead if you run into a tier 7 or 8 tank.

 

Other than that, I've no complaints and am still playing my Pz38na, Luchs and M5A1. Might take my A20 and T50 out of mothballs at some point.

Old T-50 used to be great :(

Tier 4 players lack the skill and knowledge for passive / active scouting.

I disagree...

Even tomatoes like me can be half-decent. I imagine good players would do a lot better.

Still, a lot of newbies complain "Why do I have to fight against tanks 4 tiers bigger" and "Let's make a +1 / -1 MM".

I like playing my fresh new T71 light tank. It can damage, it can spot. everything what needs for the team (actually usually I still have to carry these teams nowadays), but having 1500 damage average in T7 with a light tank is decent enought to be worth mentioning. I guess.

The new scout mm doesn't apply to the tier V Chaffee.

 

It still sees up to tier X.

 

Still worth buying though because you really need to develop your skill to play it well. This has a knock on effect to your other tanks.

Damn, you buff the scouts - now they are OP.

What's next, "A20 OP" thread?

It is OP, but I use it in full gold layout with the derp gun which is overkill in tier 4 but you don't get to chose your tier when entering a game :)

 

I only started playing it recently after having researched 2 tier 10 tanks and after having suffered a lot in the Chinese version when I started playing this game. Light tanks are great, but it's getting more difficult with all those bushing getting removed.

They nerfed the MM on tier 4 light tanks in general because they are mostly driven by new players that rage "OMG what can I do vs tier 8" and hide in A1 for the duration of the match. I personally hate the fact that my Luchs don't see tier 8 anymore. I hate the fact that it sees to many tier 4/5 matches now. I can't troll Tiger II's in it. They did not nerf it due to tier 8 tanks crying about the OP tier 4 killing em all the time. And did you seriously drive around derping tier 7 tanks in hopes to insta kill em. Or did you passive/active scout with it only?

Not sure if it is OP, but the Stuart is very strong.
