So, I am by no means a great player, but I am ok. I dont play this for any reason but for pure fun. But with the recent patch adding the tier 10 lights i feel the game is on it's way to being ruined. In an attempt by wargaming to appease the wanna be esports kids, has screwed up the meta horribly. There is no more strategy to this game. It is just packs of lights and Bat chats running around like race cars and taking shots from vantage points long before heavies can get close to a fighting position. Last match most of the heavies barely even got out of home base before dropping like flies to 5-6 lights and bat chats that had raced to a hill top and starting picking us off with immunity from us. Now, I am not saying there shouldn't be tier 10 lights, just don't give them so much damage and definitely nerf the bat chats. I am an older player who enjoyed this game for the strategy and teamwork it required. Now there is no strategy required to just race around and "gank" heavies. Teamwork? Not if you get put on the team with the lightss and then they are "screw you" I am here for my damage farming. Oh well, another game gone down hill.

Yeah! Those OP tier X lights sure are the bane in this game and are overperforming in all areas.

Maybe that's why they are so over presented in ranked battles?

Could very well be. Don't play ranked personally and probably glad I don't.

Heavies already dominate the game but sure, why shouldn't lights get nerfed? The tier 10 ones are crap anyways..

But-but in other posts having too few HTs on your team compared to the other team means the game is rigged against you.

 

OP if what you think is true then get a Bat-Chat.

I have a bat chat and no fun. I am not here to race around the map. I want to fight tanks they way they were supposed to be. Then it would called World of the Fast and Furious.

I don't see the kinda games you describe. Then again I mostly play tiers 6-9, with only occasional games higher and low tiers to wind down.

What I see is top tier heavy tanks camping and drooling far from where they should be. (Or TD's/arty sitting on the redlines).

Then continue to wallow in a bath of your own tears.

If the batchat would actually be op WG should think about nerfing it. Since that's not the case there is no reasom to nerf it

If they nerf the bat chat there would be screams from everyone. And wargaming likes to bend over and take it up the .... so the kiddies can have what they want. And wargaming in all it's wisdom do a lot of things they shouldn't. Im sure there are areas most of you have issues with, so go troll those spaces and leave us grown folks to gown folks talk.

Bat-Chat is ambush predator, it will pounce and punish if you make a mistake. But it needs to be careful, mistakes are very costly.

Well the Bat Chat is an assassin, wait, shoot your load, wait 15-20 mins and shoot your load again...

Batchat is a brittle glass cannon that requires planning or it's useless. 3/4 bct players die before finishing their first clip.

ALL tier x light tanks are hugely under powered compared to their medium counterparts, even the tier IX mediums.

Tier X is mostly over run by lumbering Maus and type 5 heavies that are the current FotM.

So, basically: if there is a hill that has been taken by enemy lights and mediums, maybe a smart and grown up player like you realizes it's not a favorable situation for you and try to find some nice corridor that suits you better.

And yeah, in any vehicle that enables me to rush hill @ Campinovka and deny it for enemy heavies, I'll do it. And that castle in what ever swamp map. And that shitty whateverrovka. Because [edited]fair fights.

6 posts from you on this thread, half of them mention kids...You must know by now that the general game population who throw that around are actually the kids who want to try and appear older. More mature posts would simply state your points without any sort of age attachment. So are you unhappy that the other kids are better than you or just having bad day and wanted a bit of a rant?

We could reach the day when 28 Tanks between the teams are either a Maus or Type 5 Heavy, but people would still complain about the one Batchat or Tier X Light. :P

Ever since the arty nerf, I feel the forum's existed in a state of flux; there's no more consensus on how unfair it is to be walloped by a skypig for most or all of one's health and folk are wheeling around in confusion, seeking a new bête noire to once again unite the omgitssounfair-ists. We've seen complaints about stun but that's cured with a simple dab of even a small med-pack; TDs but that's undone by the line of sight argument; auto-loaders but they must reload; and now tier 10 lights but they were already nerfed before launch. What can we do but wallow in this grimpen mire 'til once more a true adversary to all is found?

 

It's almost like the game is approaching a state of balance. And that can't be right.
