Wow does AMX 13 105 (the top tier french scout!!!) really have less view range than both top tier mediums and even LESS THAN HEAVY? There is an obvious question: Why should i play that tank?

Revert the stats of all lights back to what they were at the start instead... Thank you.

 

Amx 13 105: "A three-round drum capable of dealing 390 damage per shot makes it an intimidating adversary that excels in both spotting enemy vehicles and hitting them when they least expect it." The text writer didn't even notice the nerfs.

Cannot wait for another two weeks for a Chinese revision. Anybody got the 100mm gun on their WZ-131? Did you get the 15500xp spent on the disappearing 85mm 62-85T back? On your T-34-2 tech tree, is the 100mm still unlocked?

Another gem from the text is the excellent 360 view range of amx 12t. :P

Finally, changes to the branch structure won’t affect XP you’ve earned on light tanks. They stay at the Tier they were earned on.

 

This means you start from scratch with a elite LT and 0xp on it to unlock the tier 10, regardless of the amount of xp that is currently on it? Well, thats 200k xp down the drain.. :(

Shame on you, Wargaming, for what you've done with the light tanks in the last iteration!

I love the definition "to keep them from being OP". Like they would be amazing in the first place... :P

Shame WG have already butchered the lights....Making them completely reliant on team and thinking speed is enough to save them from guns with .3 accuracy and 1500m/s shell velocity...

how to

 

1. butcher current lights

2. butcher tier 10 lights

 

This light tank revision is bad, no doubt about it.

9.18 really is shaping up to be a disaster.

To me, it looks like you're giving us manure and making it sounds as though you're giving us roses.

 

  • ELC:

To bolster its combat parameters, we also increased its firepower and mobility, while bringing penetration values down to keep it from being OP.

 

Current gun stats:

90 Caliber

5 RoF

170/248/45 Average Pen

240/240/240 Average dmg

0,38 Dispersion at 100 m

2,9 Aiming Time

 

Changed to

 

4,29 Rof

120/150/45 Average pen

240/240/240 Average dmg

0,38 Dispersion at 100 m

2,9 Aiming Time

 

Ehm..... this is a MEGA nerf, you didn't increase anything, and you're essentially destroying what made this vehicle fun to play, it is.... or soon not to be, the only vehicle that could reliably do a shotgun run using the hand brake.

Super awkward gun handling, aim time and even accuracy, in exchange for high pen and alpha dmg, if you hit something, you made it count!

 

  • Other stuff

 

I'm out of time to go into details, but the one that strikes out at me the most is the tier X light, how come the tier x Batchat outclass it in terms of view range (as well as pretty much all other stats) considering view range, mobility and camo are the trademarks of the light tanks?
