I've been playing SPIC for a while, trying to advance further. Absolutely every single game, the matchmaking takes 2 min+ and puts me bottom tier.

What's going on? Is it the tank, the tank type or tier 7 that is bugged?

In a light you want to be bottom tier. The higher tiered the opponents the more XP's they bring in. The more XP's you get, the less games you need to play to get to the next tier. The MM is just being merciful.

 

The SP1C is a pretty nasty piece of work. Even though it is small, its camo isn't all that great. The gun is terrible. Shell velocity is glacial. If it were a real lawnmower, the SP1C's speed could be listed as decent. But it's not a lawnmower. It can harass and plague enemies and be a real annoying bugger. It can be fun at times, but it simply is not a good tank. Nor are any German lights after that.

SP1C needs an autoloader.

Well see, before the LT changes, it had one.

But now it's just weak, just as everything after it.

 

Everyone who plays German LTs is insane.

I had similar thing when I was grinding 13 75 on recruit account (also tier 7 lt). I wouldn't exaggerate as OP, it wasn't every battle, but I found it unusuall how often I stuck in the queue.

Correction. It needs it auto loader back. Or a mobility buff to get the original power to weight back. As it stands now. It's only strength is the camo factor when it gets to a passive spot. If it gets to it that is, as every single tracked light is faster vs it. And everything out DPM's it.

 

As for the wait. Not played lights that much of late on that tier. But going by the matches I have around that tier. Seems tier 5 is full of TD's, and tier 7 matches have 5 lights on each team. If LT popularity there has spiked, it could be a reason for it, new MM changes aside.

Well take a look at the tank types in the queue. Yesterday LT's were like 30% of it.

I used to love the auto-spud-cannon, but since fun is not allowed to be had for long, they had to ruin it... ( T~T)

Noticed playing over last week that T7 light tank MM in general is screwed, takes very long to get in a match and when you do, it's mostly as bottom tier filler in Tier 9 matches.

I noticed the same... MM took over a minute each time in tier 7 lights.

There is an issue with the matchmaking queue in general and tier 7 lights seem to be affected more than others.

Thanks guys! The thing is that i am heading towards the Leopard and had to choose between lights and meds. And taking into account that the meds are quite bad on that line up to tier 7, I took the light line. It's just a nightmare.

SP1C used to be fun with that autoloader before the general LT nerf. RU was playable, had some good games with it but generally didn't get along with it then and now much less. So, if you like putting pins under your toenails then german LT line is made just for you.

 

Also missing VK2801 and ELC, they were fun back then. Now...just nope.

When they removed it from SP1C, they immediately introduced a tier 8 premium light three shot autoloader with a very similar gun to SP1C, so yeah, returning the autoloader on SP1C gets in the way of WG's plans of selling ELC EVEN 90. Don't expect it to happen.
