Long Live Light Tanks

My poor light tanks, I almost abandoned them after patch 9.18.

I like playing LT and still this is meh. Have the 13 105 unlocked and thought it will be discounted but obviously - no.

There's the 3x ofc, but that's hardly a LT related special.

Maps suck anyway for scouting, and if you happen to play on a map where spotting can make a difference - you're competing with two other LT for spotting dmg.

I was really hoping for the Lorr 40t to show now since you have had both the Patriot and Liberté up the last couple of weeks , any hope for it coming into the shop soon ?

So ist the 50%-discount on premium vehicels tiers II-V never going to be available again?

 

This discount hasn't been available for the whole of 2017 and the discount from the last light tanks special was also cut (you can see it here: https://worldoftanks...ght-focus-2016/)

Kinda hoped for tier X light discount....WZ is waiting. But crews are important, so for training them this event is still ok. 

Where is that tier VIII new french light poop? To bad to be sold?

I play LTs over 50% of the time, so any LT special I welcome with open arms. The 2x crew training is great, since I have been doing that quite a bit lately (left a lot of mid tier LTs with 0 or 1 skill crews) and I am far from finished, so this event helps. +1


 

What I fail to understand is the discount on T5-7 regular light tanks only - why not ALL of them? (something like 50% discount T2-5, 30% T6-7 and 15% T8-10?)

What I also fail to understand is the 30% discount on the Type 64 only - again, why not (30%) discount on ALL premium shop LTs?


 

And as a bonus question: Is the AMX 13 57GF going to be sold anytime soon? Could have had that tank as the LT in the spotlight in stead of the Type 64... :popcorn:

Well, Type62, AMX 13 57, EVEN90 or #WalletClosed.

 

Why the Type64, that is nothing special as the tank is always available. You had a golden oppertunity to sell rare light tanks this special and you chose to go for the most boring one that is always available, what is wrong with you?

 

Edit: Since all these offers in this special announcement are in-game I'm hoping that Tomorrow they'll put up premium shop specials with something useful.

Am i missing something ? In the sneak peek for january they said

Block Quote

 27-30 January: If you are a fan of light tanks, you are going to love this one. Expect an experience bonus, discounts on standard and premium vehicles, and a couple of missions that will help you to take proper care of your crews.

 
As far as i can see, they only give a discount on 1 premium vehicle

That tank is absolutely garbage indeed but as I said in my thread:

"Having said that, I will most probably pick it up if the price is right (around the T92 price) since light tanks are the only class I pretty much play nowadays if I'm not grinding personal missions.

 

I know it's not the tank it should be and in all honesty it's not a good tank but if I had to choose to but this or the Defender I'd go for the EVEN90 because that one at least doesn't have a detrimental effect on the game in general.

It's underpowered rather than broken/overpowered which is always better for everyone."

Only for gold they are, so in-game, by the looks of the text when you mouse over it.

This means your coupon is useless unfortunately.

Have been looking forward to this special and even secretly hoped for some nice rare premium LT. But this turned out to be one of the largest disappointments in WoT event history.

Good morning.

 

So I am not going to meme around in a new French micro machine today?

And only one of the light premiums is discounted?

And standards only to VII?

No discounts on scout equipment and other light related stuff?

No mission based on spotting?

 

x2 crew is nice of course but this is a really weak spotlight for the class.

With the coupons they are recently giving out you can't buy gold. And almost anything for that matter, except tech tree premiums :).

 

But maybe that changed.

Don’t worry Guys!
We just need to wait for patch 9.23. All the russian light tanks will be buffed. T 54 lghtw will get better armour and gun, lt 100 will get more speed and camo. Even the russian arties are going to be buffed. Poor russian tech tree is struggling in the games. Not too many players are using russian tanks. That’s why we don’t need type 62, type 64, amx 13 57 or other useless light tanks. Just Russian!!
