it's been bugging me for some time now

 

why did WarGaming change the Crusader from a mediocre light tank into an abysmal medium?

 

and another thing...

 

will the British ever get light tanks above tier IV?

 

thanks for your time

 

peace

I'm sure it will, when WG works out how best to make money from adding them into the game.  Plenty of options at various tiers so it's only a matter of time/inclination I'd imagine.

Because it's British.

crap armour

crap mobility

crap aiming time

crap gun

 

it's an all-rounder

 

i've 3-marked it but since it became a medium it's utterly frustrating to use

 

it seems like it has no redeeming features any more

Low profile. Excellent gun depression over the sides. And that is about it. Hardly played mine since it became a medium despite it previously being a favourite.

Same reason why they removed the Lorr 40t or changed the 155 etc. As they want to make the lines more consistent. Tho was it needed for the Crusader? Not really. It still has the same dpm, gun etc. More then we can say for the M7 when it went from a med to a light, that was changed to make the LT line flow better. So you don't go from lights, medium to lights again. The only thing the Crusader lost was a bit of mobility and camo on the move. Other then that it's same old IMO. And since it was a mediocre LT in your opinion... why care?

I am still sad about the changes they made to the M7, was my go to tank to play when friends picked tier 5 tanks for platoons. now it will forever sit in my garage with 100% MoE.
