The constant focus on buffing light tanks has resulted in Tier 8s such as the LT-432 being able to pen the front of T9 Heavy tanks. (I have the replays to back this up) They also now rival Medium tanks for DPM with the advantages of having lower aim time. Adding increasingly powerful guns to their innate advantages of being faster, smaller and harder to hit with better concealment has resulted in an OP class. Light tanks should be faster and smaller with better concealment but they should not have guns that rival mediums and heavys.

Its just because you ran a cross one lucky/skillful dude in his lighttank, you choose to forget all the other dudes that died without anything done for their team.

In my opinion you overreact.. Lights are far from OP, except for some premiums, because they haven't been changed when regular lights did. Also there aren't any lights that have been buffed, as far as I know, so I wonder what source you have for that. I watch video's from several Youtubers, so if that was the case, I probably would have known about those buffs.

 

I agree about LT-432 though. The armor lay-out on that tank is ridiculous and loads of times my shells bounce on the side of the hull and turret, or only hit the tracks and not shoot the track off.

LT-432 shot a tier 9 heavy tank from the front and was able to deal damage.

and now i ask you

did the LT-432 shoot standard ammo or special ammo?

what heavy tank did he shoot? AMX 50 120, WZ-111 1-4 or something else?

what kinda angle did the LT-432 have?

its every day business.

i demand a replay.

LOL light tanks are not OP.

 

The LT-432 has 176mm of penetration, and 218mm of AP premium pen, its HILARIOUS you complain about the penetration, if a tier 8 light can pen you frontally then pretty much most tier 7s can and either you have a heavy with genuine weakspots (i.e Conqueror lower plate) or you are driving around sideways, either way its bad play.

Should they have tickle sticks instead?

 Which light tank has a comparable gun compared to a heavy????

 

 "Light tanks should be faster and smaller with better concealment but they should not have guns that rival mediums and heavys."

 

You are describing an actual fact not an aspiration there.... they don't have guns to rival the other 2 classes. Also as they are faster and smaller they also get lower HPs as well.... which is quite a significant weakness if they are trading shots with a t9 heavy.

Surely you sent WG these replays?

 

If it was a Russian heavy tank, that's literally armor hacking.

1) There is only few maps where LT can do something what MT can't.
 

2) WV denies early game forward positions to LT now and make various classic LT tactics dangerous. I find myself so back with LT so often that I seriously think to stop to play them at T8+ and swap to MT. Regardless I'm LT fan. Playing LT at T8+ approaches masochism level.

 

3) If LT could pen your HT frontally you or your whole team did something wrong.

Which tier 9 heavy tank did it pen with its 176 mm APCR or its 218 premium  ammo

What are reasonable gun stats for a tier 8 light tank.

​If its a RU light though... it may be allowed?

Its true that LT-432 is strong in its own class, but they're nowhere near OP lol.

Yes, light tanks should have to drive in melee range, a nd then they can poke their gun barrel at the enemy and slash him like with a sword to do damage.

I had the idea in my mind of being able to tickle them under the tracks and the heavies would roll over onto their turret and then allow me to tickle them some more on their bellies. Their aerial would be waving from side to side with the enjoyment.

Jep lights have SUCH a OP guns.
Even tier 5 heavys got better guns then tier 8 lights.

Lights are SOO fast.
Even derp guns hit them if people with a brain use them.

 

Lights have SOOO much armor.
Even tier 2 lights have more.

And they camo. SOO op.
The top 10 camo tanks list has 0 lights, 1 medium and 9 td's.

SOO op. Dude your right.

Let's remove OP lights!

STEVE! Is that you Steve?!

 

Light tanks from tier 8 upwards are actually less and less competitive the further you go up the tiers so I've got no clue what you are talking about. And take it from me as I'm a very skilled LT driver.

The majority of players will be better off in a Defender then in even the best light tank of tier 8.

 

I do agree however that premium light tanks should not be better then free regular tech-tree counterparts.

Not sure who you're agreeing with since Steve didn't say that! Not that you are wrong, but you probably don't want him on your band waggon!
