lol....good joke.

 

like all lights since the 2nd test they are completely worthless....


 

I'm not even going to bother trying to explain why the nerfs weren't needed and the tanks were balanced before it. I already tried to help WG development team countless times with feedback as did other people but they don't care.

Thinking 0.4+ dispersion on non-derp guns above tier V is okay should be punishable by death. Not even getting into LT view range. Hands off light tanks.

Why, just why will the autoloader be taken away from the 59-16 and also the wz-131?

Is 85mm pen seen as to overpowered? :mellow:

 

 

R.I.P.  little 59-16 buzzing around high tier tanks and trolling the hell out of them with the autoloader :(

bla bla bla bla, still dont care a smallest bit about any stupid high tier light tanks. Buff or no buff, doesnt matter, change of MM, still dont care, for all I care lights and arties could be removed together. Hand in hand to the grave of WGs fail development.

Restore the view range.

Restore the armor pen.

Restore the original auto-loader drums.

 

The fact that they will not ALWAYS meet tier X tanks does not mean they have any chance against tier IX mediums, for example.

Haha I love that my old Tier VIII WZ-132 will lead to a Tier IX WZ-132A that in most ways, will be a worse tank. Made a useless sniper due to 0.36->0.42 dispersion (but with buffed pen) and gimped traverse speed (but with somewhat higher power/ton-ratio) so u can´t drive around and shoot as you could before. Yey!

Question: Are people annoyed by the changes to Light Tanks because they're now actually Light Tanks rather than being quicker, weaker Medium Tanks, or are people annoyed because they were Light Tanks but have now been nerfed below that? 

I don't really play Lights, only when I have to, but to me they always felt like quick Mediums (keep in mind that the highest I've gotten in Lights is Tier 4). The spotting range thing is stupid and it should be boosted, especially how they're sold as "Scouting Tanks", but the overall feel of a Light Tanks, at least to me, should be: move fast, root out the Arty and TDs camping in bushes, spot and bother bigger tanks so friendly tanks can take them out.

Do the newer modifications allow that?

Good job WG, I like %99 of the new changes to Light tanks. PLease don't forget german light tanks because it is really annoying to me when I play with Medium tanks, they just KEEP shooting me with that 200 damage autoLoader gun and this why Light tanks deserve to be nerfed imo.

They were pretty well balanced as light tanks at the first test, second test they are about as effective as tier 8-8.5ish mediums with very insufficient view range advantage if they even have it at all, and accuracy close to derp guns. Currently looking like batchat will still be the go to scout tank at tier 10 if they stay at the current stats.

Stop it!

Just delay the patch and balance the damn light tanks properly! or roll them back to before the micropatch and then adjust them on the live server if required.

you ruined light tanks, with low view range, crapdpm and ridiculous accuracy and made the game even more pay to win with arty stun and faster recharging premium consumables and the need for food consumable for light tanks to have usable view range, what are your next plan? [edited]off wg. after 6 years, it is time to hire someone who knows how to balance numbers. and time to stop making the game pay to win. you should offer normal tanks (not premium)  for money, and cosmetics. so it would not be a [edited]wannabe competitive game. joke.....

Replace additional grousers and camo net with optics and vets and and you can actually spot back the invisibru hackings tanks.

also, by leaving premium light tanks untouched only making them have a better mm, you make the game EVEN MORE PTW! if you are afraid because you feel that it would be a nerf to adjust premium lights, maybe consider this: you nerf all other light tanks. you make them less capable to have an important role in battle..... if you don't want to change the stats of premium lights, just leave them with the same (fucked up but so far working)mm (+1 lvl medium tank mm) 

 

AND FOR GOD SHAKE, kick the retard who is responsible for this shitshow. and hire someone who can do the job, i understand that you boss's close friend needs a job, but maybe hire a professional, not a friend.....
