Potential buyers might want to read the threads linked below before handing out their hard earned cash. 

A short summary: A fun tank, but seriously gimped by the horrendous reload of 28 seconds for a weak 3 shot capacity. DPM is at tier 2 standards (1180-ish). The EVEN is, despite being zippy going straight, rather sluggish when turning. 

And to have fun in it, and yes you still can despite the facts already listed, you need a fully skilled crew (preferably >300% ) and  knowledge in how to play a light tank. 

 

And do not be fooled by the good replays you find posted! In this thing you will get steamrolled like nothing, because up face to face with another light tank you do not stand a chance. You cannot outrun them, you are outgunned, and you cannot outmaneuver them.

So WG is RELEASING this broken scout with not 1 buff , typical pathetic  money grab again company. The more you keep pulling this crap the more i feel like telling you to stick your game.

This tiny tank (no, it is not the smallest tank in the game) is addressed to skillful Light Tankers only...

... If you are an addicted WN8 junkie ... don't buy it (it is a scout tank, not a shooter = No good for WN8 stats) ...

... if you are a player who like to have fun and gain XP & credits ... buy it (it is a good & funny fast cockroach).

 

This is an advice from a Light Tanks addicted freak (me).

The tank itself costs only 25 Euro, not to expensive for a tier VIII premium tank ... so, they (the WG) don't sell it as an OP tank, they sell it for that what it is ... a fast and also very easy to hide bucket with big eyes.

 

:bush:

lol

 

3 shots each doing 220 dmg and 30 sec clip reload?

 

lol

 

I was a fool for thinking this tank is OP when I first saw it, still remember how our team freaked out and tried to focus-fire it down quick.

just like T 92 wargaming had time to see the flaws of this tank but it seems they didnt care. this car.... i meant tank is underpowered and when you sell a premium it shouldent be so hard to master... because of course not all those willing to spend are expert light tankers and they might even use this as their first premium light tank...

this isnt a hardcore simulation i cant understand why not buffing some of its characteristics for the sake of gameplay , or it will be another TOG 2

There are three threads going on this tank which have various suggestions for buffs as in it's current for this light tank does not cut it.

 

Primary thread (20 pages long)

Secondary thread (8 pages long)

Tertiary thread (6 pages long)

 

The short story is:

- Either it needs vastly better gun handling with the same DPM *OR* the same gun handling but vastly better DPM, then it's balanced.

- Improve some of the terrain resistance values of the hull.

- Slightly increase P to W.

 

It's a fun tank to play for sure and the camo is great on the 3 maps in rotation you can use it on but unfortunately most maps in rotation have their key points in a close-range brawling area which makes camouflage useless. For the massive amounts of areas like this the gun handling/DPM needs to be made competitive.

Abuse that excellent camoflauge and be a proper scout.

 

There is nothing better than parking besides Maüchen and Mauerbrecher and they can't do nothing about it. :trollface:

 

Did LT-15 mission for object 260 in this, so fun times.

Fools with money to waste on a bad Premium Tanks line up with your credit card ready

 

make WG proud throw your money down the toilet

you must have seen the Twitch stream CC player reviews only the BEST LT players with 'real skills' enjoy this T2 tank at T8

 

go on buy it and die in 1st minute on all the City Brawling corridor type Maps which are 80% of the Maps in the game

 

then pray to the map servers for the 4 open maps that this LT needs

I completely agree, especially about the 28 sec's mag reload.  It is deplorable. I does not manoeuvre well. Complete waste of money and WG will never get another penny off me.

Totally pissed off with them. Wish I had read comments before I spent on the *edited*.  :facepalm:

idk why u cry so much about that i think that one type 64 sniping wn8 machine is enough.i dont want teams full of sniping lights when i play and i dont want game populated with crap like defender.

if u dont like it dont buy it if u want to snipe buy td,but yes u want to buy something that is fast,invisible,deals insane dmg and probable u would ask for more armor too just bcs u can buy it.

Lol. I was desperate to get this when it was released to premium users (other than me).  But as I suspected my initial excitement at the prospect of something new and a bit different has worn off now and I won't be bothering.

Given the excessive amount of aimbotters, this tank is doomed at the battlefield...

Who said anything about sniping? The gun handling and DPM are unsuitable for both close and long range both.
