Really, really, REALLY, looking forward to these vehicles!
As a light tank player, an aggressive one at that, these really suit my play style :D.

 

 


 

Can't wait for you to release the EBR 75 FL 10 Either! :D:D:D

Ok, you say "take them for a spin" , like a test drive, but where do we get them for a test drive? No rentals as far as  i can see. Only test server...

No news on what happened with the "boost" mode...? Did it stay? Did you remove it?

more game breaking :trollface: ... people can't even snipe a Maus moving like a turtle in front of them and you introduced this "wheeled vehicles". I can't wait to see all this players shoting after one of these , i can bet like 80% of them will waste their shots by missing. And here you have what i call "trolling vehicles" , good toys for troll players that want to have fun with some dumbs into the game and also for people who hate arty , just get one of these, drive into enemy base, kill the clickers and escape very easy as majority of players in this game don't even know how to aim properly. Enjoy ! :teethhappy:

they already said, that it was removed. 

I was one of the people that cried that new vehicles would be bad for the game, but these couple of last minute nerfs, made me believe that now are more ok.

I can't get used to wheeled vehicles. I always try to spin on the spot!

Why have they got such low DPM compared to single shot tanks? It's not like they have clips of 6 shots or something.....

The removal of the boost mechanic already handicaps them as does their low view range. They however do not have the health to make up for having to put themselves in the line of fire which is odd.

And yet they still explain the boost mode and how to use it in the article...they really need to make their mind up because right now it's just confusing.

Please don't add these rocket cars into the game. In organized battles, they will be able to spot the entire enemy team within the first seconds of the battle, completely ruining any strategies. In random battles, they will be used for suicide scouting or to rush artillery within the first minute of the battle and even get away from there alive. And as if all this wasn’t enough, they make the physics look silly and it’s completely rediculous that they can accelerate faster than a sports car. These clown cars doesn’t belong in this game and should be removed.

Lack of "radioman" is a problem for some light/medium/TD players.

Only french heavies and arty use radioman in their crew.

Any chance for a misson to get extra radioman (yellow vest pupet Macron for example?)

 

Also why is premium tier 8 so much better than normal one ???

To not make wheeled vehicles overpowered compared to tanks and compared to their real life roles, shouldn't tanks get functioning machine guns? Most wheeled vehicles in real life could be damaged by machine guns. And almost all real life tanks had them (and even the models in the game have them), they just don't have them active in the game because we don't have any infantry or light vehicles.

 

Yes, machine guns would make wheeled vehicles more vulnerable. But without them it would be ridiculous, as we would have wheeled vehicles winning brawls against heavy tanks by circle-strafing them. This would make the whole game very cartoonish.

Too late they are coming, but as a previous poster mentioned most will not be able to use them.
