Wargaming, please stop the light tank and tank destroyer spam!

 

Matches with too many light tanks or tank destroyers (like 5 to 7) are totally broken. And with the new match maker they happen on a regular basis.

How is a team to supposed to attack properly on an assault map when they have 7 TDs, 3 arty, 2 heavies and 1 medium? 

How is a match with 7 lights on each side supposed to be fun on any map?

 

I can think of at least two possible solutions for this problem, an easy one and a more elaborate but also more elegant one.

The easy one: A maximum 3 light tanks and maybe 3 TDs per match. If this leads to slightly longer wait time that's fine. Nobody is complaining about waiting for like 10 - 20 seconds to have a proper match up.

 

The complex one: Team templates for every map. A semi open map may have 1 arty, 2 lights and 3 TDs for example. A small city map may not have lights or arty. Only heavies, mediums and a few TDs.

I have absolutely no problem with those matchups - as long as both teams get roughly the same kind of tanks.

 

For assault it might be a problem, though. No idea, I don't play that.

After 30k matches you have 3 posts. This issue REALLY must have hit your nerve. ;)

I usually spend my time playing WOT not discussing the hell out of it.

But you are right, as a pationate light tank player it really is a pain in the [edited] being pretty much useless because 6 other light tanks are also spotting the only area on a map that is worth spotting. Or being on maps over and over again where a light tank is quite useless because of its size and layout.

The real solution would be better maps but it's Wargaming. I expect every new map to be even worse than the last. So changing the MM would be a simpler solution.

I think in these games you need to switch mindset and think of your light tank as just that and not a scout , spend energy wiping out their eyes before you can go scout mode - 7!of anything is better than > 3 arty is it not ?
