Always wondered how it would be to play a tier 3 vehicle against 10 tiers... I found out. Play lynx 6x6 and you will find out as well. This tank must be a joke and must have been designed by drunk developers in wargaming.

Maybe you don't know how to play it yet, because Lynx players I face can usually achieve more than the average player.

I may not know how to play it but common guys sone has to admit there is sth wrong with this one. There is no fun. I got all female crews trained with 3 skills got food, optics vents, rammer even use bond optics and I get almost no better than a tank in tier 5. Ok I am fast in rapid mode but that is only for running. Traversing the vehicle is a nightmare in rapid mode. Switching to rapid mode is another thing. Other light tanks can ram me to death as I am the lightest tank in this game ( even 7 tier EBR did that as it is heavier than me) . My view range is same with the vehicle in tier 7. Gun reload time is terrible.  I catch fire almost half of the games I play. If there is really sone else having good matches with it hats off to them. Nothing I can say more.

Not a joke, but simply a challenge.

You don't like it.

You don't play it!

Simple, isn't.

 

I do not like HT gameplay.

I play HT for missions only.

I suck on HT and on WV.

For me every match on HT and WV is a challenge.

Simple!

I disagree I liked playing the 7 tier even 6 tier but this one certainly got sth wrong. I didn't play 9 tier yet but it is going to be much better I expect. In whole line there is a problem with this one. Anyone realized even tier 2 tanks weights more than lynx? This tank just don't fit into the concept.

Well I have to agree that tier 6-8 are really bad (imo). Really situational and underwhelming. I always feel like I'm a tier lower.
The tier 9 however is fun and though it's still not super good compared to other tanks of the same tier it's a lot of fun. Had an 11.3k combined damage with it today.(http://wotreplays.eu...4787933#details).

 

Can't wait to get the tier 10 and from watching the streams it's the ultimate tank in this line and makes lots of fun.

 

Also I played the Lynx 6x6 with frontline which also was quite fun because the distances are great and you have a lot of room to manouver. Also it was really good for decaping - that's while I'll get the ebr 75 for sure in order to have a credit printer for frontline that is fast as Lynx ;-)

Give it some time and my Tipp: Don't play the Lynx in randoms but only in Frontline!

Yeh the 6x6 is bad, in Frontlines it was quite decent, the big map, the light tank consumables, the only tier 8 allowed MM, meant it worked, it wasn't amazing but it worked.

 

In the current meta though in randoms it is just very bad. Gun is meh, you have crippled view range and in my experience 'speed for survivability' is not viable and does not work most of the time. When you get hit at full speed by a bad camping, HE firing E100 that is turning its turret and tracks, you know they are really not very hard to hit.

I found that out about 8 years ago when I was playing a Hetzer vs a T95 and I remember a post where I asked WG how I could possibly pen that thing. They told me to use gold ammo and to flank it. But back then, gold ammo costed real money to shoot... Yeah 5 tier difference back then was the norm but the good thing was that arty back then did amazing damage and could take out toptiers in about 2 shots but then again the bad thing was that spot-damage didn't exist so even though I spotted for our arty and killed their toptier, I got 0 rewards for it.

Good old days...

 

I also remember leveling a light tank that didn't had the pen to pen the enemy tank regardless of where I shot it due toe 5 tier difference. It was literally impossible. But I vaguely remember that light tanks back then could be matched against any tier.

 

I  saw a lot of Lynxes in FL yes but I don't know if they are any good.

Tier 7 is very nice and T8 is a bit worse but believe me: T9 really sucks. Same gun as T8, very bad elevation arc, much less mobile in rapid mode and very strange drivability as it often turns while you jump over little bumps. I hate it.

The yolo running around would only work if it was half the size.

Also the tier 9 sounds like a washing machine on the spin cycle, it's irritating.

Lynx is very OP and should be nerfed. I had a duel with one in my Blackdog on Frontlines. We were zipping around full speed, both firing HE. Lynx HE pens me every time, while my HE fails to pen him. Very unfair, very OP.

  You do realize WoT is a 15 vs 15 game so 1 vs 1 performance should not be taken into account when balancing. Also not our fault you played badly once.

Im not 100%, but I think the guy was being less than sincere.

Yes 15 vs 15 while one team has fast scout with view range and other has fast scout with no view range.

 

Hmmmmm, I always chose team with view range.

This thread makes me sad :confused:

 

Xaneleon and other streamers have said Lynx is good, so I've been grinding the EBR Hotch (which I don't particularly enjoy) to get it. I know the Lynx's view range is very bad, but I assumed that the excellent mobility and reasonable pen/alpha would more than compensate.

 

This reality check makes me think again. I may have to halt my grinding until the WVs get some buffs...

Lynx is not a joke.

It's a hard tank to play , all the wheeled vehicles are. Just because you don't know how to play them yet doesn't mean this tank is a joke.

If you were talking about the tier 6 , i could agree. The tier 7 is decent at best , the lynx is good. The highest tank wn8 i've achieved in lights are in the lynx and ebr hotch.
