Anything that improves gameplay (I.e decreases arty numbers) is Good news :D

The game never really works when there is a new vehicle line released because you see so many of the same things, and in the case of these vehicles, people need to get used to them (i.e learn to shoot a bit further in front), give a few weeks and I personally doubt you will see many of these vehicles and the few that you do see will be pretty ineffective. 

 

WG has nerfed them so hard that they are nothing but gimmicks really, the lower tier ones are not even faster than the lights to be honest.

I've said the wheeled vehicles are trash ever since they entered test server and they got nerfed twice since.

Met my first T10 EBR previously. He spotted me early and I got clicked by the 3 enemy artillery but clipped out the EBR in return. Suicide scouts, nothing else.
Let's be honest, they are NOT hard to hit unless you're a bot.

Tried playing the T6 myself too and god I hate it. It's a bit "easier" right now because of a lot of lightly armored tanks so just load up a lot of HE and kill the others. Don't expect to spot anything though, this thing is blind and turns like a brick.

Another class nerfed to appease Steve the IS-7 driver, while they might seem OP the first few days once everyone is used to their speed they'll be as easily killed as light tanks now.

Every good thing can have it's downsides as well.

If these vehicles will have such an impact on playing arty (to early to tell i guess) I cant wait till players (arty haters) start to whine here about not being able to do their arty PM's.

Interesting that you hadn't earned a single Pascucci's medal so far, out of 12 battles played in tier X EBR.

Yeah, requires to kill 2 artillery by the player. Reload takes long enough that I manage to shoot 2 times and my artillery finishes 2nd one :) I think correct way of saying is; get their clickers killed and come back alive with full hp! 

 

Not my national language, so sorry for that :)

Er HE? 

 

I am pretty sure the reason WG gave these things high pen HE rounds is so they can one shot same tier arty.  You need a couple of high rolls for a few of them, but basically its why I think it has 500 HE alpha when most 105s have 480 alpha, so you can more reliably one shot tier 10 arties and will pretty much be certain of one shoting all tier 8 and 9 arty.

What do I think?

 

Once the dust has settled, the novelty of playing the T10 version has worn thin and players seek to go back to playing actually real tracked tanks all that will be left is an already bad gaming experience at T8 and T10 made even worse in which these wheeled tanks will be just constantly disrupting any slight effort a player makes at pushing or doing anything other than sitting behind a building. Bad for the game. I haven't returned to play for days after taking a ban the last time I played in frustration with several days of top tier battles in which my teams were just the most useless inept clueless cowardly ignorant problematic crayon munchers I've ever been cursed with and I just couldn't wash away the vast amounts of HP alone so I don't want it anymore, I'm tired of playing my arse off just to maybe get a win while pretty much 14 other do f*** all but hide or snipe with a Type5 from the back while ignoring the minimap, going to the most stupid places and ignoring targets I spot for them over and over that are on a plate... these wheeled tanks are just going to twist my nuts even more since I like to play in forward positions and try to make things happen, which is clearly a positive way to play but not allowed in this game, I don't want it anymore. I won't play to this bs anymore. It was only barely fun lately, I don't consider 1 fun battle for 7 sh*t battles a fair trade and lower tiers just get shafted to be hp pinatas for higher tier tanks with the MM the way it is. Most maps suck, the new ones suck harder, it's not fun much lately. I know what I said might come across as a grumpy arsehole, fine, this is how it is.

 

Kinda agree on this 100% even though my play style is more varied.

Im not too used to using HE on light tank, since only RHM is only LT with useful HE shell. But yeah, using HE for clickers would be much more useful, just need to learn to load HE :)

b) WG seriously cannot make a single good patch. They just keep [edited]the game up more and more.

 

The thing is. A good patch for you, might be a bad patch for others. Some loves this patch, others hate it. Even the patch you loved... some hated with a passion, be they many or few. 

 

It's 100% impossible to make one that pleases everyone constantly sadly.

Well I may have been summing up how I feel about the current state of the gameplay lately more than anything much got to do with the inclusion of these armored cars. So was probably more an opinion in anticipation of how their forced yolo playsytle on an already campy cowardly playerbase is going to only add to the issues with nobody willing to push or dare crawl out from behind their hidy rock for fear of being spotted earlier and punished sooner in the battle than they normally would compared to playing against tracked light tanks since light tanks don't have to yolo and can play a less brain dead style of scouting which often results in passive rather than active scouting which at least allows bad camo tanks and slow tanks like heavies the time and chance to actually get more than 10 meters from their spawn without being immediately spotted by some yolo race car on steroids.

 

I'd only be applying that opinion to top tier battles inc the T10 car however since they actually have the speed to do that. The mid tier cars are shite really aren't they? So I don't expect much to change for tier 6-8 really, those tiers should be just the normal everyday mud gameplay we've come to know and love, with the O-ni protecting his arty from redline while a type64 goes to brawl in the valley on lakeville with the heavies and dies leaving his team completely blind lol. Yay :teethhappy:

Did you free XP to T10 to get a tank that reduces battletimes, when you want longer battletimes? Uhm...ok.

ZOMG the tier 6 wheeled vehicle has 300m base view  range.

 

BWAHAHAHAAA!!

 

Oh wait it's already in the game. Let me rephrase that:

 

BWAHAHAHAAAHAHAHAHAAAAA!!!

Sooo.. I tested the tier 6 with a 10 AP and 35 HE setup on the 2nd gun. Did careful spotting as I pushed up their base as I already had the ELC on the flank spotting, and we had a T-50-2 going aggressively too. So no need to go full yolo.

 

Spoiler

 

I got 4 shots on the 45TP's rear plate after I did flank it as it had a friendly O-I in the face. All did 150 to 190 damage.... With HE. The tier 6 is a terrible active scout. As it even lacks the speed to do the job vs higher tiers on soft terrain. But as a bully tank? It's not bad.

I have a 2 skilled crew in mine with optics, and it sits at 368. Not great. But not super terrible either.

Yes? So what? I didnt introduce or want those tanks. Its not players fault if game company makes bad moves when introducing new game mechanics and new content.
