Hello, commanders! 

How many times happened this to you?

1.-Get in a slow TD

-Game starts

-Move like a snail into a sniping position (literally max 100 meters)

-Wheelie flashes by, spots you and you are dead.

2. -Get in a light tank

- Game starts

- Run to a bush

- Wheelie flashes by, spots you and you are dead.

 

This things are absolutely undeserved and unfair. Next to the fact that they are impossible to hit, makes me think of quiting this game forever.

Putting this things into the game, with absolutely no countering to stop them, it's absolutely the most disrespectful thing WG has done since forever.

Not even a shrapnel shell or something, to at least give you a chance to hit them...this is absolutely crap.

What a novel post. I wonder why no-one has mentioned problems with WVs before.

Honestly I think the funniest thing with them is when my Jageroo hits the wheel and it takes no damage. I mean my shells weigh more than that tank!

 

They can be annoying and they're no doubt strong when played well. But I wouldn't exactly call them "game breaking."

No, wheeled vehicles did not destroy the game. 

 

For the avoidance of doubt:

 

Wargamming allowing free-to-play plebians to buy premium ammo for credits instead of gold destroyed the game by starting the full-premium load-out meta.

Apart the borsing, if you're in a slow TD you probably have tons of armour hence should be at the front, not camping 100m away from the base. 

And to be fair, I like WV because they can actually catch TDs out of position and allow people to nuke the campers. They're not game breaking, they just fix the problem of thick vegetation near base WG added in 1.0.

if you do a thing and it does not work out for you.

dont do it.

you can not do the same thing every time, players learn and adapt, so should you.

 

if a scout spots you favourite bush every time, you need to move to new bush where they dont expect you to be and so on.

If you are in a light tank how do you fail to see a WV with crap view range coming before it gets anywhere near you?

Don't face-hug tanks that can circle-strafe you?
Also we've already have enough wheelies ruin the game threads, so yea, constructive post 2/10.

If you don't know what routes to take in order to reach desired locations it's your own problem.

 

2. -Get in a light tank

If you got out-spotted in your light by a wheelie with this difference in view range, behind a bush, still is a LTP issue, not wheelies fault.

 

 

Wheeled vehicles have speed, and nothing more, their guns suck, their view range is bad, and suffer from very low HP pools. It's a matter if you can adjust to counter them or not.

That would have had so so so much more gravitas if it were not for the spelling mistake.

Nice try "bro".

The only change they need is the ability to dissect them by blasting parts off, namely one wheel at a time.

 

Or the ability to kill their steering mechanism, forcing them to drive straight/ in circles until the inevitable happens.

 

Giving one a wobbly wheel is funny to see, but not entirely satisfying.

The vehicles themselves aren't very powerful or threatening at all. But the fact that they can spot you before you've even moved far from spawn is a bit naff.

 

The whole mechanic would work a lot better if the maps were bigger or if they had a shorter radio range, to avoid slow tanks being spotted before being given a chance to find the nearest bush.

 

It's funny how WG want to stop camping, but then force you to camp from the very start.

The EBR Hotchkiss reminds me of what the AMX ELC bis was like before it got nerfed. Except it seems even more potent, and hard to one shot.
