As most of the players noticed in tier 10 light tanks become extinct. Actually from tier 8 to 10 balance gets pretty messed up. Td start to do huge amount damage while heavies get little improvement, and lights disappear from the game almost entirely.

My belief is the cause of that is hit points. 1500 at top tier ? That's way too low. I think adequate number would be similar to what mediums get, around 2200. Medium have their advantages so light tanks do, but the hit points is just not necessary difference. HP offset may be valid at lower tiers, but at the top other tanks have way too many advantages already.

Light tanks must change to rally tanks. Slow heavy tanks must be better viewrange.

My guess for LTs on tier X is nobody with the skill to play them correctly would consider playing something with such dire accuracy. I love my LTs I have played so far from tier 6 to 8 (and even some 5s) but while I quite like the idea of a couple of 9s I shudder at the 10s.

I like the tier 9 lts ive played so far (t54ltw and the t49) unfortunately the sheridan is the only 10 i have so far and yeah it's pretty gash.

Kind of says it all that the bc25t is still the best all around tier 10 light and it's a medium tank.

T100 LT seems pretty popular, probably because its also used in CW and campaigns.

 

Maybe Russian light tank just has to be #1.

But it's not. I hate that tank. It's quire resilient because it's so low fast and has some armor but the gun us utterly crap. I like the US and the german top LT to be better somehow.

LT u dont need shoot anybody, just drive and spot. Sheridan is BS - its not spotter, its not medium and u team spank u if u not spotting.

Biggest light tank players problem is shooting and then tank lost camo and dead.

The main problem with light tanks is that the best light tank in the game is a medium tank.

Yeah since they nerfed the view range light tanks at tier 10 are in a sorry state.

I hat the T100LT and disliked it imensly the gun was such a lottery it was almost not even worth firing.

In a tier 10 only game I'm always surprised to see any light tank as it usually means they are dead in 30 secs then usually followed by a defeat.

Please dint play lights in tier 10 unless you are a unicorn.

Several rebalances ago they lost their neve when they talked about nerfing the view range of everything else and just did a few TDs.   You can't increase view ranges above what they are but they could have taken 20-30 off meds and much more off HTs, TDs.   But annoying the heavy tank experts would be too much.   

 

Alternative is pehaps to make Binocs a standard equip on all lights, in addition to the three other slots.   Or make Net/Bins activate faster than on other tanks.

Hey OP, which medium tank at tier 10 has 2200 HP? Answer is none of them. Closest a tank gets is 2150 on the T95E6 and highest tech tree one is 2050, E50M... Mostly mediums have worth a one shot more of HP than lights. And light tanks already have the advantage of getting hit less in sense of mobility, camo and size.

I though I saw tank with 2200. Nevermind lower it to 2000 then.
