Well played WG you are going to release a dead tank line. Surely this was a waste of resource to even programme these tanks in? What you need to do to fix this is redo the tier x to be great so that everyone free xp’s to it so that players need to buy  gold to convert their xp. Give it an extra crew member so that the retrain cost is 600 and not 400 gold. It’s like you are not even trying to make money anymore. One last thing give them more shells how can we fire more premium shells if you limit the amount of credits we burn through?

 

Shame on you

Hilarious Quicky vid, thanks.  What are WG thinking?

He could use a hairwash though.

Add DezGames and probably countless other WoT CCs (even if they are not officially one) to that list, plus WoT forums, plus reddit, plus... you get the picture.

WG doesn't care, it's a LT, and for whatever reason they hate LTs...

I still hope that this time they are starting low on the tests and not way too high as they did with many a (russian) line...

Hopefully both viewrange and alpha will go up, ideally also camo and we'll get a line in the vein of the old elc ^^

 

hope dies last

Do you really need to start a line at terrible? I mean its obvious to everyone that these tanks are really bad just from stats. For example if you just went to pretty much what Circon said, buff the DPM to the same level as other lights, buffed the aim times, buffed the shell capacity, and gave them all like higher view range. 


I think they would still be on the bad side and average at best. What exactly do they need to test here? That if you give tank terrible attributes they will indeed be terrible?

 

I mean QB highlighted in particular the comparison of the tier 10 against the Rhm, and the Rhm was better in almost every way, and the only real advantages the British tank had was a bit of pen, slight camo advantage and bit smaller. 

 

But then the Rhm. is the worst tier 10 tank and in need of massive buffs as it is, pretty much ALL the tier 10 lights need buffs, especially the Rhm., Sheridan and WZ, so bringing out a tank that looks terrible compared to other bad tanks is just incompetence IMO. 

 

There are no excuses for WG here, this is just terrible from them.

It's called balanced and not OP. What you want more OP vehicles to cry about ?

A comedy line of vehicles

Was this development period sent to the clown school?

I’ve just double checked it’s not April 1st

Leading community contributors condemn the whole line. Clownshoe WG! It’s just an embarrassment

Can fully agree that the line as it is now is underpowered and needs buffs - IMHO they should improve shell damage, camo, viewrange, and ammo capacity.

That said, if QB thinks the Setter can be played like the T71 CMCD and the GSOR can be played like the T49, he's drank some expired tea or he's delusional. Not sure why else he made those comparisons.

And about the ammo capacity think, a buff is needed as already said, but "not enough ammo to carry" is a [edited]argument that only applies to the few players who can actually carry a high tier match in a light tank. Most of us can't, deal with it.

Balanced?

 

IN what way is this line balanced? They're massively underpowered, every single tank from VII-X is the weakest tank in its tier  by far.

 

Just to add, 2 crew is laughable. 1 shot from arty near your tank and you're disabled and out of the game.

 

Wargaming are clueless.

No its a valid point, why should a tank's potential to have a good game be artificially capped because of stupidly low ammo count. 

 

To be honest these tanks are not just restricted from carry games, they are restricted from good games, like Circon said with the way RNG is in the game you miss shots through no fault on your own, with these tanks you could miss a few shots and be out of the game.

Please explain how this is balanced...and what it is balanced against?

Just watched QBs review, while I dislike him immensely his reviews are generally pretty decent. 

 

There is NO reason to grind this line. none,  while I've played the Cromwell enough to unlock the Setter. I've just rechecked accelerate crew training..... unless something changes I certainly wont be grinding this line.

Terrible, useless tanks are not "balanced".

it was fun to see QB in his video literally demolish the wargaming and their ridiculous and really pathetic British light tanks , today QB should release a second video on these vehicles where he also shows with the gameplay that they are totally useless under every aspect

As others including Circon have said give them more dpm then the French wheeled and autoloading lights. More shells and have the tier 8 start at 400m view range with the tier 9 and tier 10 410m and 420m. We don’t need OP but why make it unplayable? As it stands no one will even sink free xp into it which is what WG usually want. The only thing I can think is that WG have made them this bad to get people talking and then will magically buff them at the end so people think they’re been listened to.
