What is it with all these light tanks sitting on rank A or K taking random shots at nothing because there's nothing in mid map spotting. All the do is give away their positions to the enemy. I've just played Pilsen in a Stug TD. It was the umpteenth battle where I've been the furthest forward with a line of LT's sitting on the K rank behind me. LT players need to learn how to use their tanks!

For *edited* sake, it won't happen generally.

Maybe he had XVM and noticed his teammate with the Stug TD was a 45% win rate tomato and decided he'd only be wasting his time spotting targets for such teammates and decided his best chance to win was to play the TD game himself and I'd also bet he ended up doing more damage than the Stug TD player. Am I right? Thought so.

Looking at your tanks and battlecount i assume you mean players in the low tiers. Don't expect anything from any of them. The majority are new players who have no idea what they are doing. I was like that too you know.

Missions? Do damage to TD's. Blind fire at every TD camping bush. I see it all day after this patch.

Just because he is a light does not mean he must go YOLO like a [edited] on every stupid map.

New mission for light, damage some tank or other. In random a lot of the focus for some people is their mission and why not? No one else is going to do it for them. Some of the blame can also be attributed toward the map designs.

Annoys the hey diddly outa me when players start spamming and insulting or even shooting and pushing a light cos he hasn't yolo'd and died for them. No patience most of the time.

might not have the camo to go forward, but as a sniper at the back at least the owner might get exp.

So does your average damage, average xp and win ratio but it doesn't make him any less right.

The majority of players who have trouble telling their arse from the elbow in high tiers are just plain bad though. 

I don't judge a player who has 2k games playing his tier 4 tank badly. I was there too. Many just don't understand that rushing tiers won't help them getting better since they as a player lack the experience / game knowledge and their crews don't have enough training either. These are the players who are nothing but dead weight when top tier in a 3-5-7 or 5-10.....actually it doesn't matter which position they have, they are equally useless no matter what they drive.

Exactly. The other day I front spotted from a bush, then got shot 2 times and pulled back (temporarily) not to get killed. Just because I pulled back I got shot to death by our own rhm retard.

Tier 10 lights (unless T-100LT) are the most common sight in bushes, usually occupied by TDs, nowdays. The amount of WN8 padding Rhms, AMX 105s and Sheridans I've seen lately is just mind blowing ! Just sit in bushes and expect mediums to spot instead of them. It's all good if they actually can, but when you're a Lorraine 40t, that doesn't use Optics and Coffee and you "only" have 427 meters view range, it's rather pointless to even try. But when you do try, they park up behind u and fire their gun so they get spotted and u eat a couple of shells instead.

I literally cringe every time I see Tier 10 light tanks in a match up. Either they are too cocky and go die in the first 20 seconds of the match, or sit behind the TDs all game long and fire their pathetic little guns at targets 500 meters away from them.

A lack of superior view range is no reason why LTs should not scout - they have other advantages making them (mostly) better scouts than any other class.

Yeah no.....scouts still have camo on the move and their generally better camo values as a weapon. And they are dangerous in the later stages of a game. Having about 10m less viewrange doesn't make them useless either. I always try to use my camo to get close to the enemy providing my teammates with targets to shoot and maybe squeeze in a shot or two of my own.

Probably he's a new player, like you, so he might not be aware of what's what. Also, if I'd be spotting for dudes who miss half their hots, I'd give it up and start doing my own thing pretty quickly.

 

All in all, you're a clueless new player, he might have also been. In any case, you're in no position to tell anyone how to play the game.
