woohoo, these should have red oscillating "knight rider" lights on the front, since they also get a "turbo boost" :)

Good to see they are not just light tanks with wheels and more mobility, that would be stupid.

 

Another thing, we already know WoT's engine/infrastructure handles shooting at very fast tanks badly, especially at range, since where the tank is and where the server thinks it is, are two different things in this game. How are you going to account for that now that you are introducing even faster vehicles?

I srsly doubt that this whole concept of "constantly moving in front of your enemies" is gonna work at all.

 

First, it's fairly easy to land shots on the moving targets in WoT, especially with APCR ammo, which is standart for many high tier tanks.

Second, we have tracking and artillery splash.

And third - corridor map design. It will be extremely difficult to dodge projectiles in such narrow environments, while on open maps there is not much hardcover for such playstyle.

 

This game is not Quake, afterall.

Did they say how they are going to deal with tracking?  If you have 8 wheels what does it matter if one gets blown off?

An interesting idea. I am little bit sceptical about its usefulness bcs of  huge view range of high tiers and corridors on most of the maps.

I have no doubt that many players will like to drive like crazy across the map without any tactical benefit for the team or win. This will be a wet dream for yolo warriors :facepalm:

You mean this will be just as much a neutered class like high tier light tanks as they get outspotted by most of their victims, get outgunned by most of their victims and even get outsped by a lot of their victims (due to map design)? :teethhappy:

only 310m view range? hows that going to help you spot rd's especially those sweedes hiding in bushes?.

Also with the current corridor meta these tanks are going to be useless can you imagine getting himmelsdorf or paris in rotation normal lights struggle these are going to be even worse and with the current spotting mechanics being broken as all hell I just don't seem these being viable.

 

I like that your trying new things and these tanks look really cool but the maps just cant support them I mean tier 10 lights should never have been introduced in the first place now were getting more? no thanks unless your going ot give us a new game mode with all large open maps with hard and soft cover(which the community has been asking for years for you to introduce) I'm sorry I just don't see them working

theres no point on ACTIVE SCOUTING if you DONT HAVE VIEWRANGE !

you simply CANT spot in any circumstances if you are OUTSPOTED BY ANYTHING ELSE !!

 

if you want active scouts all what you need to do is to givethem LOW PEN GUNS ! That will forcethem to FLANK instead of loading p2w and penning enemys frontally, will use their mobility and that means automatically ACTIVE SPOT !  :facepalm:

 

THATS THE MAIN PROBLEM OF NORMAL LTs  TOO AND WHY THEY DO PASSIVE SCOUT OR SNIPING ACTIONS !

BECAUSE THEYRE OUTSPOTTED IF THEY MOVE ACTIVELY AND CANT SPOT ENEMYS WITH WORSE VIEWRANGE + THEIR PEN ALLOW THEM TO SNIPE, ESPECIALLY WITH P2W AMMO !

Thats why you FAILED with normal LTs ! Lack of Viewrange and gold !

The gun is what decide how you must play a tank like this and Viewrange allows it to perform its main role (of should...if that VR is good enough...), if not, its just another fail.

 

so simple...but wg...:facepalm:

You will be only slowed, not stoped, while u have more than halve of your wheels active.

I was posting that comment while still watching the vid, so... :unsure:

No tracking, a hit wil take out some wheels, slowing down the car but not completely stopping it. And repairing wheels take longer than repairing tracks. So toolbox (+25% repairs peed) might become a useful piece of equipment again :)

 

But i hope they will extend the armoured car autoaim activation (click close to the target, not on the silhouette) to all other tanks as well. This is really a nice feature!
