I got a RU251. It's tier 9 and was once the fastest light in the game.

 

Today, it's slower than, say a Bulldog (tier 7!)

Also, on a steep rise, it's engine stops way before that of a bulldog.

I can't climb where bulldog and other lights (and even meds!) can, the RU251 just looses grip.

 

WG, please do something for my RU251's mobility.

To make all your problems go away, just play Bulldog. ;)

Stop climbing, they are going to remove those spots in the future anyway.

Asking for a buff to a tank so that you can get into places you aren't really supposed to go isn't really going to gain any traction... (pun intended)

E1 bush - stay back - let the Bulldog take one up the blurper - use his carcass - sorted ;)

I like to see these "you aren't supposed to climb" people. Telling somebody else how to play on their own account...

 

 

OP if you need help on how to climb, watch Pz knacker's videos about it.

Climbing is fine imo, unless a Swedish TD does it, then it can completely break a game. A light tank sniping somewhere on a mountain is less useful than a light tank on the field.

Climbing is a side issue.

My RU, once the fastest tank in the game and with offroad driving trained, has trouble trouble outrunning a scout that is two tiers lower.

Its top speed was nerfed but it's still very mobile, mobile enough to flip yourself over a little bump.. I don't really see an issue with its mobility, other than the fact that you apparently can't climb every mountain.

in itself, no, but if compared to the mobilty of other lights, even two tiers below, it becomes an issue.

Why is it an issue? My T2 light tank goes at 70 km/h at tier II. Just because a tank is of a lower tier doesn't mean it should be less mobile. Since you can absolutely destroy the tank that is 2 tiers lower than you (probably with HESH shells too) I don't think this is an issue.

it is a big issue, since the enemy outruns me to strategic spotting points.

 

HESH shells?

I can't fire those because it means a credits defeat.

The HESH shells on the RU cost 350 credits, it's the cheapest ammo the tank has. Yes the enemy may outrun you but your tank has other strengths. Like HESH shells that completely obliterate enemy lights with 102mm pen and 320 alpha.. Just because you're a tier higher than another light tank doesn't mean you need to be faster, each tank has different qualities.

Stop climbing maybe?

Climbing in an RU must be a good way to put your team 1 LT down.

That's IMO way better than being such an enormous dipsh1t and tell people not to have children IRL.

WindSplitter1

 

Jesus Christ...

 

And somebody even advised this guy to have children? Please don't OP. I'm pretty sure they'll meet the same destiny as the computer hardware he destroyed.

 

Please, sign yourself to a clinic and get help. Stay away from computers, ffs.

 

Also, forumites: 26035. Can't believe anyone forgot.

 

@Pvt Duffer, he's prolly in WoWS now, trying other WG products before finally losing it :D

OK, for all slow to comprehend: it's mainly about enemy lights being quicker than me to the good spots, not mainly about climbing.

what HESH... it's regular HE you are talking about.

The RU only has APCR, HEAT and HE as ammo options.

One thing is to drive Pixel tanks up a pixel mountain from a game

It's another to break computer hardware over it. Seems you need help yourself. Hope you do find it. :)

 

Was it too much to quote me or were you expecting me not to see this?

I did quote you.

And you did tell a guy off because he said what OP was supposed to do, while you asked a guy not to have children because he will probably destroy them, based on a post he wrote on a forum. It makes me think you are genuinely a terrible person. 

You can try to stick it up your butt, yet you still can't run away from being an awful hypocrite.

Look how concerned I am about what a random stranger thinks about me: :D

Feel free to keep the last word, though. That right shall not be removed from you.
