Lights at top tiers are underpowered.

SPGs are underpowered.
Completely broken mechanic, but underpowered.
They have to be be cause in direct fire is too broken to be as capable at damage output as any other vehicle

Lights are underpowered. Only T7 and some T6 and T8 lights and AMX 13 90 are useful. The rest is more or less bad.

 

Arty is more like broken/badly implemented.

I wouldn't classify it as either op or up.

Depends. As on tier 7 you have tanks like the T71 DA. That is one of the more well-rounded lights in terms of spotting and bullying tier for tier. As it's view range vs tier 7 meds is not useless to name one. 

 

Then you have tier X lights that have less view range then most equal tier meds. So with no optics or a bad crew, they struggle vs even the Patton sitting 100m behind it. IMO they should have 420 to 430 base.

Lights are fairly decent at lower tiers, with tier 7 being a solid tier for lights, but at the higher tiers they tend to be mediocre at best with the tier X lights being laughably poor.

SPGs are broken, juggling a few bad mechanics hence why they can be a pain despite most performing poorly statistically.

Your poll is kinda unclear i think:

 

Tile: Poll: Wich class is OP

   Question 1: Wich one is UP?

Question 2: Wich one is UP

 

:confused:

They might all be UP, but this thread makes me feel very DOWN.

Light tanks as a class aren't OP. There are a few ones that can shine every now and then (the autoloaders), but apart from that they are out of the meta.

The poll is bad, because it repeats the same question and in case of the other classes it's impossible to judge about their OP'ness without looking at it tank by tank.

I wouldn't say any class as a whole is OP it's quite the blanket statement to make. Obviously there are examples in most classes that could be considered OP (mostly premium tech tree varients).

My hole clan says lights are OP (tier 7/8/9/10)  Your whole caln is wrong. Light tanks = decent at tier VI and tier VII, then it all begins to go down hill in their power ranking. Tier X light tanks are terribly underpowered and badly need buffing.

Im like, they aren't. They are average. Average at tier VI and VII below average tiers VIII - X.

1 dude says, arty is underpowered. Im like: they are unfair not OP not UP just average. Interesting concept. They took a huge nerf at patch 8.6, which most players were pleased about. SPG as a class are very devisive and WG are aware of the huge SPG hatred. Compared to how they were in the past SPG's are under powered. But where they are at now, is where the majority of the player base would prefer them to be ie average. Any SPG buffs would get a huge backlash, so they are unlikely to be buffed.

Who is right? Some

Lights are beyond OP, darkness has no means to retaliate.

Today I read about 7/5/3 MM, then I get in a match with qpranger and he claims he carried the battle in his GWE100 with 1.6k damage. Then I hear light tanks are OP. What's next? Zombies taking over the planet?

Everybody knows lights are OP that's why WG have given them way worse stats than other classes to compensate.

My lights are neither overpowered or underpowered. They are electrically powered. :hiding:

Im thinking that players TOTALLY have forgotten which role the different type of tanks have.

Worst for me are the those who drive light tanks, thinking they are underpowered, NOT true, coz the pen my heavyes all the time, and track them at the same time (MODS???).

Their Role is to scout/hide, Rush behind enemy tanks and take out arty and TD's, NOT engage in open combat.

The probem with all the new Med's is that they got allmost the same turret armor as Heavys and so build that they are much more diffícult to find a weakspot on them. The also got more Pen than heavyes.

 

Spotting has ruined the game, taking a light or Medium tank with good crew skill and equipment, driving around with 60 kmt, spotting better than stationary cowered tanks. Thats a WG joke. try that in Real life. HA. 

What ever tank is stopped and in cover is more likely to see a driving tank than the other way around.

WG has the last couple of years twisted this game into something, that players want but further from realety. WHY????????
