From FTR:

T37 Light Tank

- elite turret viewrange nerfed from 390 to 385
- 76mm T94 shot dispersion from moving turret nerfed by 50 percent
- 76mm T91 shot dispersion from moving turret nerfed by 50 percent, accuracy nerfed from 0,36 to 0,38

M41 Walker Bulldog

- Stock turret:
76mm T91 reload nerfed from 3,1s to 3,3s
76mm M32 reload nerfed from 3,8s to 4,5s
76 mm T91E5 clip reload nerfed from 34s to 38s

- Elite turret:
76mm T91 reload nerfed from 3s to 3,3s
76mm M32 reload nerfed from 3,3s to 4,1s
76 mm T91E5 clip reload nerfed from 32s to 36s
76mm M32 Late reload nerfed from 3,5s to 4,3s

 

Do you think that these tanks are still great? Only the guns seem to be affected yet, so the mobility should stay the same.

If your great with lights I doubt it's going to be a massive hardship, in the right hands the awfulpanther is great little sniper and harassment light tank, so it may effect the odd noob like my self but great light tankers will make it sing

These tanks are still great in normal hands and still awful in hands of noobs. I hope all strange people (t71 fanatics?) who told about crazy OP of bulldog will finally relax and stop whining.

Well I just mounted the autoloader on the bulldog and instantly fell in love with the double damage output. The actual reload is 34,5 seconds without vents or BIA, compared to the 4.3 second reload of the nerfed single action gun

 

 

Light tanks can do so much more inbetween clip reloads compared to other autoloaders that the reload doesn't feel that bad at all. And once you get to that pew pew action, man is it powerful!

 

 

 

What i meant to say was that the autoloader is a much more viable gun option now, and the actual performance when fully loaded didn't change one bit

I haven't really noticed any significant changes in the performance of T37, still loads of fun imo. Unfortunately, I never got to try out the M41 before the nerfs, still hoping I'll like it as much as T37 when I get to it.

I guess it has toned down. ALG still is OP as ever but with buffs other LTs are more fun too.

 

Recently played a lot other lights than T71 or M41. But coming back to USA tier 7 -> the most OP and bestest part is the APCR (default ammo type) shell velocity. Very little lead is required up to medium long range, which really makes hitting targets a lot easier compared to any other LT (tank / tank line) in game.

I just got the M41 Walker Bulldog just tonight, I tried out the different guns but settled on the auto loader, why because of that oomph in one clip, I do understand in a long drawn out battle the late gun is much better but my play style suits me well with the autoloader. The best thing I have done so far is passive scout and then ambush an unsuspecting Jg Tig and pew pewed him to death. I am still on my 6th game but oh boy this is a fun tank, especially in t7 and t8 matches this just bombs around. Clan mates told me to always keep moving and relocating with this tank, meaning abuse it's mobility characteristics. True indeed mobility is your armor. I am still definitely learning how to play this tank more effectively, with just 6 battles and I know more losses will come my way before I can trully say I can drive that tank "effectively". I am just glad I did not get the tank before the nerf happened. I do not feel any nerf because of that I do not have anything to compare, in which I say is good if not better. Light tank driving became seriously fun again!!! MTs and LTs you are fun!

Eh, with the top gun getting nerfed massively (reload went from 3.5s to 4.3s) I don't think it's really worth using over the autoloader anymore.

Too bad for you, you  have played it before the nerf. I cannot simply relate to what the nerf really is all about heheh. Although that is a significant nerf but I do not really mind. I still like the tank.

Yeah, I played it before the nerf and it was great, but the tank as a whole is still very good. Wasn't really a tank I enjoyed, though. The LTTB is more my cup of tea.
