yep get a LT with 100% camo on crew, with camo net, on prohorovka go in E1 bush.. don't move, don't shoot... and see how batchat on mid spots you.. while you are completely in bush.. with activated camo net, with 100% camo crew.. AND while you are ON THE END OF BC's VIEW RANGE CIRCLE. 

then wonder how KV-3 spots staying in bush E25.. it's so funny... IS-3 spots not moving LT within his view range.. so funny. wg it's the best update you ever made.. it's not rubicon.. it's even better....... congrats

Couldn't care less about the "light tank focus" itself, but 2x crew XP and consumables discount will shut my mouth of any complaints. Good job WG, except you should add the 2x crew XP as an icon so people will notice it too.

Well, might buy some old light tanks back and stock up on some consumables as well, think I'm running out!

Such a special after 9.16 and showing where the hits come from...

WG, such an irony, nice sense of humor :teethhappy:

Giving WG some credit I think they listened to the feedback from last weekend.

Tier 6 not Tier 8.  Wins not kills.  Optics not binocs.

 

50% consumables is nice and x2 on crew XP is always useful.

That is a positive move if it is a reaction to feedback and not just a reflection of there being no Tier 10 LTs.  Although it would mean that TD fans were the only ones to get shafted by the Tier 8 requirement.

While I'm happy with any freebie and discount, I do think it's pretty lame that the discount only goes for light tanks up to tier 4.

Come on, guys..

Yep, that was possibly the worst weekend mission I've seen yet, much better this weekend

And the Type 64 gets 30% off... but that isn't all the visible if you just glance over the news item.

Hey guys,

 

Has anyone else noticed that last week and this that WG have made it TWICE as difficult to win the goodies?

 

Weekend missions used to require that you won and finished in the top TEN.

 

Now it's win and finish in the top FIVE.

 

How easy is it for Joe Average to win 10 games while also being in the top five?

Being among the top 5 instead of top 10 is more difficult, but being top 5 is hardly difficult when compared to "win 10 battles in a LT" on a weekend.  Problem?  :mellow:

That's because there are no tier 9 or 10 light tanks.. They had to go lower with the tiers for this one. Anyway, not bad. Getting into high-tier matches and inflicting some damage you can easily get into top 5 by xp as you will get more by damaging higher tier tanks.
