I am by no stretch of the imagination a good light tank/scout player. In fact for the longest time I stuck just to Heavies and Medium tanks and avoided light tanks. I started the American line leading to the T71 and must say I enjoy the tank and the game style.

 


 

The one thing I don't enjoy, and am looking for feedback from other light players or T71 drivers is the compensation for a "good game".


 

As below example for a scout tank I consider 2700 spotting damage and 6 tanks spotted a pretty good game for a scout. This means I generally did my job. Look at the reward 7k credits. I have noticed that even on a win I don't really seem to get too much compensation.


 

So my question is; Is this how it always is with light tanks like the T71? It seems like if I sit in the back, wait until late in the game and come out and do 1000-1500 damage I get more reward even if we lose than if I do my job. Maybe this is just a generalization but it is a bit frustrating and enough to maybe not let me play the T71 anymore.

2700 is not really that much spotting damage. Plus it looks like that was only a tier8 game, which means you were only dealing with "low tier" enemies. In a good match you will earn nice rewards too like in this match I had a few days ago:

2,700 dmg Isn't a bad game rlly and like the guy says he doesn't play scouts very often so give him a break in that regard :)

I've had scout battles where I've worked my butt off and got a few k of spot dmg and a couple of k actual dmg only to see in the battle results, meds and heavies above me in the xp ranking, who by comparison did sod all.  Kinda annoying after you put so much effort into a battle and get less of a reward than someone who you carried.

i think credits flow when you deal damage, so therefore if you deal more damage you will get more credits.. i kind of struggle with my T71. fortunately my last game on Redshire brought me a Mastery badge, with 3.5k spotting damage and 2k damage + 3 kills..i think i got around 30k credits or so.. but i didn't care... was glad i finally had a good game in it.. i hope the buffs will make it even better.

It used to be an "end of line" LT (which WG forgot to normalize. End of line tanks don't earn xp or credit for progression toward a next tank)

T71 never was a end of line tank, Chaffee was and T71 didnt exist. When T71 was added, so was the whole line to T71 -> T69 -> T54E1 -> T57.

 

To get any idea why the earned credits are so low, we need to see the "detailed report" -tab. Tier 7 should still be decently profitable, but if you e.g used gold ammo, food, autoextinguisher or something else expensive you will be bleeding money fast.

Yes, somehow the amount made it all ver confusing.

It was the end of the line of U.S. LT's though. (For me as a LT player anyways....)

That was what confused me.

Personally I play my T71 more like a support tank and rarely do massive spot damage. It's not uncommon that when I do *relatively well in a tier 10 game killing 2 BatChats & 1 T-54, causing ~1600 dmg, I get rewards like +30K credits, ~1K xp and top the scoreboard of the whole match is xp gained. I don't consider these bad rewards, but ofc it often requires a victory to get any good rewards.

 *relatively well seeing that I'm a below-average player

Every time someone complains about T71 i instantly want to force them to use the 13 75. which is worse in every single aspect. seriously people T71 was the most OP tier 7 scout before the stupidly OP WalkerNoobdog got introduced.

 

Scratch that. use Awefulpanther. its WAY worse.

Don't be bad mouthing the awesopanther, 13 75 bad mouth all you want as its a bang of wank. And yes the op t71 just handed out arse kicking to scouts when it was king of the hill which made it more satisfying when ramming it at full speed with the awesopanther and wrecking it. But now with the walker bullshlacka running around the t71 has lost its crown
