Honestly T49 is almost a pure GARBAGE for an average player.....Yes it could be fun from time 2 time that 152mm Trlololo Gun but in most situations is just a waste and you will hit the ground instead of enemy + tank feels slugish comparing to most of the light tanks with no armour and so so camo....Walker Buldog is a real deal comparing it to this junk...

It has average mobility, average accelleration and a gun that may get a full damage roll in maybe 1 in every 6-7 shots, depending on wether the target is armoured or not.  It's the least OP of the new lights imo.

Never driven it, but for as far as i've seen it's a tank of pure luck. I've had fights with it in my wz-132 where it was right next to me and couldn't hit me, but i've just aswell had fights where the T49 didn't even hit me and scraped of 300-350 health of me. Does it need to be nerfed? No, not as it is now, but it doesn't need a buff either.

I've played it on the test server A LOT and I've seen other people playing it.

It goes like this:

  • 4/5 games you barely hit anything and you get shot in the face while trying to aim - you fail miserably and you wanna sell the tank.
  • 1/5 games you connect every single shot and you penetrate tier 10s in the side, rear (or face - WT auf E100 ) and you do like 4-6k damage in a tier 10 game.

:smile:

It's the ultimate troll cannon. But not OP.

 

That's the T49 in a nutshell, most games you get off one shot that does margianl damage before your target shoots you to pieces. Then there's that one epic where you get the enemy offering themselves up like a shooting gallery. The T49 is not a light scout, it's a direct fire artillery piece.

Basically this tank is _ultimate_crap_ but the 1/5 games troll hits keeps you playing it. 

 

Seriously this thing has worse accuracy than arty even close up and it's sluggish and hell. Just a minute ago couldn't get to the back of 113 because he could turn his hull fast enough. (Wasn't even terrain) Amazingly bad soft stats for mobility.

This tank is just ridiculous; it needs to be nerfed, nerfed and then nerfed some more.

 

Care to explain how you yourself would nerf it?  It has the worst mobility of the new scouts, the worst gun and one hit by anything heavy/td regularly results in a full hp ammorack.  Over to you dude.  o7

So far I think I grasped it, 410 battles at 56% win rate. 71.1% on the way to my 2nd MOE. Does anyone else beg to see tanks from the WT E100 line on the enemy team when you join a match? It's just free credits and XP.

I suppose you've never driven the T54 ltwt. then, loving that 175mm of pen at T10.

Nope, never have and probably never will seeing as I have an LTTB.

My take on the tank

http://forum.worldof...92#entry9860892

 

I wouldn't go as far as calling it garbage, but the tank does have its unique challenges. That's why I guess I enjoy playing it so much. You have to play it as kind of a messed up scout sniper that's also a bunker buster.

Actually now when I think about it more: This tank is basically an arty in light tank chassis.

  • Arty gun
  • Arty accuracy
  • Arty aiming time
  • Arty reload

lol. this tank is a joke. after driving Bulldog, this thing feels like E50 (which is not far from truth). it barely turns, it has crappy acceleration, low terrain passability (water will slow you down drastically (and that's with top engine, tracks, and 100 octane gasoline + off-road on driver)... 

 

the 90mm gun is good, it's great for de-tracking and setting tanks on fire. can't wait for the 155mm launcher. I know it changes playstyle into an opportunistic stalker but that's fine with me. 

 

I'm using rammer, vents and optics. taking GLD or V.stab doesn't make sense to me, since aiming time is too long and accuracy is too bad so you need to get really close to put in a good shot, and when you're up close, GLD and V.stab are not needed...

not needed?

wait till you sink shots at 20m 10m before the target into the ground....

the way I see it, the best tactic is to drive behind someone's arse and blast them from 5-10m (while keeping your own splash radius in mind). also, you can simply do a drive-by attack while they're distracted. just auto-aim, gain some speed, shoot when up close and continue driving to the nearest cover...

Sure, but dont forget it drives like a brick (for a light tank, its handling is similiar to an e-50 imo).

I finally got the 152mm chimney pipe and I don't know what to say... this tank is really "meh", I couldn't believe my fückin eyes, but this crap is really able to miss a tank from 10m (because fück logic)...

 

sure, I got some lucky hits, but that's all it was. pure luck! hitting anything with this thing is a lottery unless you have enough time to drive behind them, stop for a second or two and then fire off...

From what I've seen, a lot of guys play T49 like a support fire/mobile arty thingy. ( streamers, youtubers, experienced players generally )

I've unlocked the T49 a while ago, but I'm not sure I can handle the love-rage relationship of a troll gun on a light tank.

Gonna stick to the Bulldog for know, I'm trying to see if I can make the autoloader work.

It is, but then there are the moments you onehit/ 2hit a conquerer ( 1100+fire without extinguisher) or a lorraine or a batchat.

also it is one of the best late game carriers imo because you will always do your 200-400dmg.

 

Its just the maps which work against it sometimes and utterly crap if your team isnt doing so well.
