Hey guys!

 

A while ago me and a friend noticed, HOW much WN8 points we are getting while playing the Luchs, without really focusing on doing damage or playing the tank too seriously. So I decided to create a 2nd account (Albert_Einstein), concentrating on damage, kills and WN8, to find out, what in this regard is possible. I am not a bad player, but far from the best. And there are a lot of people trying to get as much WN8 as possible ... probably with using Free XP and using Gold to get to there padding tank of choice. I grinded the Luchs at this account, used a 50% crew, no premium shells, account or anything else ... and that's the result:

I am right now the 6th best player on the EU servers based on recent WN8. That's totally crazy, to be listed there with our fun clan between KAZNA, S3AL or FAME shouldn't be possible.

 

In case a really good player would use the Luchs he could probably do 1 1/2 or even 2 times the WN8 i am able to do. Something like that shouldn't be possible, should it?

I have not seen any increase in points playing this tank over anything else. It's a tank I play often, and I don't see what you see.

I do see it. And I just found the same thing myself last weekend. Tookthe luchs out for couple rounds just for fun of cruising in loooong time. I'm not even "excellent" player and I think my avg WN8 was left on some 4700 for those less than ten battles. For me, that's just not possible. Purely the tanks fault. I guess the reason is in how it is located in the tech tree. It's very tempting tank when you start your wit career. Was for me as well. Then I played it being a total seal and a rotten tomato and gained WN8 of <450 in 80 some battles. Yep, omfg...

 

Now going back to the tank it seems that with just above average skills you can make huge results. I just invited my friends to take a taste and platoon with luchs's. B-)

I've got the same with the VK Leo.... so easy to get high WN8 scores.

I guess it shows that there are relatively a lot of incompetent LT drivers in these tanks... or they focus only on spotting and not on doing damage themselves.

Same thing for all LTs really.. Especially the T4 light tanks where a lot of clueless people play them so the expected WN8 values are very low. I managed 35K WN8 games before in my pz 38NA. lol

I think you guys missed my point. Of course you can stat pad in the Luchs as you can do in more or less every light tank if you focus on doing damage. But we all know there are a lot of people out there who try to stat pad as good as they can – and then I try to do so for the first time, take my Luchs and get without any problems into the WN8 Top 10 of the EU server. Aaaand I am maybe a bit above average overall, but not a great player. That shouldn't be possible, I think. Show me an average recent WN8 between five and six thousand in any other light tank (for more than just two or three games, of course) and I will accept, that I am wrong … but I think, you can't.

Never been much of a light tank driver before but wow. Luchs really gets the WN8 padding done well.

Its not a joke if you play many different tanks, sebastianpotachka just fools the system (and he does it very well)

Yup yup.... played 30 games with Luchs on Sunday... with average WN8 ~2.7k with that tank.

 

I originally played this when it was tier 3 and now rebought it. I have played maybe 80 games with it and gotten around 5-7 mastery badges already.

 

Pretty awesome little tank, and you can abuse the viewrange/camo all day long in low tiers.

I have been playing more scouts lately and my stats have been going up.

 

We get your point OP, but why should it be impossible? Pick any scout a lot of players get to play and you get a high WN8. I have been going through a lot of low tier German vehicles as I'm grinding some new lines. Just shooting your own HP pool gets you well into blue territory. If you shoot twice or three times your HP pool you get a massive WN8.

 

The recipe is simple, pick any tank with little armour which a lot of people easily get access to and shoot stuff. You know this formula works when you get to the STA-1. Not many bad players are motivated to get past the Chi-Ri. Good games in this thing don't give you huge WN8 ratings as there are very few tomatoes playing the tanks.

 

edit: btw, I got my ace tanker with a 75% something crew in the Luchs.

When I grinded the VK2801 I skipped the Luchs for some reason - maybe back then there was a short cut auround it.

Now - after 4 years of WoT and some autoloader experience I really can say that the Luchs - for experienced and good players - i as op as a LT can be.

 

This tonk is so ridiculously funny if you know how to use it.

It is nice to know that Christopher Hitchens is playing beyond the grave!

 

As for Luch, I hate it.

 

Pz Ic is OP however.

No SP, it is always a joke.  It has more holes in it than fishnet stockings.  It is the biggest scam ever set upon WOT.

WN8 is a good and useful rating system for the limited statistics wargaming offered when it was developed. There are of course some weak spots, but all in all it gives you a good impression of player skill, if the player doesnt try to manipulate it.

Luchs is a great stat padder. Not the best for sure, it still needs a semi-normal team to do well, you can spot all you want if your team is bad then it doesnt matter

 

THIS, the Pz.Kpfw. 38H 735 (f), is the best Stat padding tank, especially since T18 got removed from TD line. Absolute monster.
