been playing this one again after a long time and really not liking the view range.  whats worse is being outspotted on thing s like sand river when top tier by panzer ivs, or mt25 and not spotting them, when its against tier 8 tanks its almost useless as a scout as it gets outspotted by most tier 8 meds, and quite a few tier 8 heavies.

 

have similar issue with batchat 12t but that at least has a great camo rating

 

can light tanks at least have max view equivalent to the top tier meds they will be facing range  so they can be active scouts please

So if t8 lights have 420 view range, then how much should tier 10s have? 

 

Don't get me wrong, lights are weak, but giving them too much view range isn't the solution.

​if they cant fulfil their primary role then that needs buffing

 

at tier 10 same, they should have best view range of all tanks

Take in account the cammo values of the tanks. Lights can get closer to spot.

​yep, I have some tier 10s, but I can still get outspotted by m48s if they have optics, less so now my crew is getting better but if an m49 has bis, optics and food he can outspot me by 30m or more

Not really true. You spot them way earlier even with Sheridan that has worst cammo out of the lights.

​might just have been a fresh crew then, or perhaps another tank I did not see was spotting for him?

That's mostly it, we think the one we are trying to spot is also the one spotting us. That's where all those cheating accusations also come...

​problem is 20 or 30m is very difficult to gauge, and even maintain
