Thank you.

Sure thing. If it gets 20 to 40m more view range. As if it's slower, it can't be as blind. As per the point... with the speed. Tho it never worked in the first place.

Always ready to compromise

 

The wheeled vehicles with boost you could make that work in a similar way to the consumable "Removed Speed Governor"

While activated, it adds 10% to engine power (and therefore, vehicle acceleration), but your tank's engine suffers damage while activated. That means your engine can break down during the battle.

 

What I suggest is that the Boost feature has the same limitation if you use it all the time or for extended periods you can damage the engine.

Your repair kit will reset the clock as it were.

They should be able to work out a balanced formula.

 

In return you could maybe be a little more generous with view range.

Having a hard time shooting them?

 

I can hit them just fine...I can't see a problem with them. In fact, just today, on Pilsen, I oneshot a full-speed Hotchkiss with my arty.

No, if you slow them down they'll stop doing the funny corkscrew aerial moves when you kill them.

 

I used to find these things incredibly annoying and hard to hit as well. Then I started actually playing them in order to learn how they worked, what their actual strengths and weaknesses are. They're not as overpowered as people think and they need that speed, badly, because they are perpetually outspotted. If they were slower but with better spot range, they'd simply be untrackable lights (though since playing them I also discovered that wheel damage actually does matter).

 

People just need to learn how they work and how they deal with them, which includes how NOT to deal with them. You're going to have trouble sniping them at 400+ meters so get them when they're closer, unless you have no better targets. Wait for them to make a turn and then fire according to their new direction, rather than firing along their old one and hoping they don't swerve. Push them if they get really close, they take ramming damage like they're made of lego. High shell speed is amazing to deal with these things, so if you have fast shells, aim for these buggers, your teammates may have more trouble than you if they have slower shells.

I find being drunk makes it easier to hit them...If you are below the legal age for alcohol have a few redbulls

I like playing my LTs although I'm not very good with them. These wheelies make my LTs obsolete. This makes me sad and not too keen on playing.

Less speed will mean it will have to get more view range and Camo, so which one do you want?

Got three of these Wheeled Vehicles in the Garage the tier 6 7 and 8 only the tier 8 has a crew a very good crew in fact.

Not played them for a month or so, busy on other tanks.

I have played most of my tier 6 7 8 and 9 light tanks and that's a lot of lights

One on one the Wheeled tanks are a match for most lights in the same way that a light can be a match for other types.

 

When you can get in close and use your speed you are hard to hit usually you can get in a couple of shots with auto aim locked when they are still trying to aim  ahead of you.

If they autolock on you they can only get a hit when you change direction or slow down,

 

The wheeled vehicles are ANTI scouts and they are good at it.

I am pretty sure the IS3 I was running rings around in my Light tank felt the same way about me as others do about the wheeled vehicles.

They make my life interesting.

Ahh a list of good players. Surely that strengthens the argument. Interestingly one of them has actually played the premium one a bit.


Celution is the only one making a proper comment, but it's still his opinion and win rate curves are against him. There is no need to morph the WVs to be like other LTs.

 

Hundewurst: Kinda has a point but WV balacing is already working quite well. Forcing it to work would just make queue times and players' enjoyment suffer.


Exclamationmark/Dr_Badthur: A generic comment with misinformation in it. This one actually needs to learn to aim if 50% of his shots are not hitting the hit box of the tank. Aim higher and give better lead. And no, the wheels do not absorb any shells. They go through them just normally and you can take out both front wheels with one shot even, making the WV unable to turn at all.

 

Just play the WVs yourself to see that they are not actually anything special in terms of performance in battles. They have a fun factor and in hands of a good player they can perform.

Absolute nightmare facing them, especially when you get three in a pack.  HE spam and I swear they get a massive boost to accuracy on the move.  I've given up firing at them in anything with a long reload.

You might want to take a look at their dispersion compared to a similar light...

Have ALL of them in my Garage....    178B and Hotchkiss need Crews, and now so does the EBR 90....     They've Moved Up like the Jefferson's to the EBR 105....

 

Looking forward to the New Brit Lights too and whatever Armored Cars they eventually Bring.....     With them getting Lights first, I can see German Armored Cars maybe sooner than Brit....    Just to give the New Tanks a Soak Period.....

 

I'm liking the Armored Cars overall....      Just need to Slow my Roll somedays, those are Lynx Days, Great TD too....

That aim time difference though. Combined with their acceleration it lets the wheelie pump the brakes, fire a reasonably accurate shot due to amazing fast aimtime, and zoom off before most people have processed where they were hit from.
