In most games i'm noticing there can be as many a 5 light tanks/wheeled vehicles in a battle, i believe i read somewhere before WV's were launched that they would be limited to 1 per team, well i'm not seeing this, what i am seeing is as many as 3 per team, and in these cases what is the point in playing light tanks anymore, these cars have totally negated the effectiveness of light tanks, the game is beyond ridiculous!

And another WV whine thread, really WG should implement a filter that any thread which has "Wheeled Vehicle" in the main post just disables the "submit post" button.

 

Adapt or die, simple. It's *THAT* easy.

WV's are underwhelming across all tiers except for the T8 premium which is mildly competitive.

1 big problem i see very often is completely down to WGs MM and nothing else. Teams that have 2 or 3 un-platooned WVs in a battle against a team that has none. There is no excuse for that, none at all. You cannot let the MM treat a WV as a simple light tank, it doesnt work that way.

It treats WVs as WVs.  It really does work that way.  You just have to adapt your playing style to a change in the meta.  As someone earlier said ... "Adapt or die"

I think you can except for the tier 8 premium and the tier X, which are clearly much better tanks than the rest of the lights.

 

Specially playing the Lynx, you have no chances against the FL.Probably the most unbalanced premium when compared to the tech tree tanks.

 

Much Better mobility, more DPM and much better gun, you just have no chances when playing the Lynx

Don't really like playing WV myself, unless you have a football pitched sized area of open space that turning circle is annoying af.

I can do handbrake turns in tracked light tanks, can't in wheelies therefore tracks are better.

 

Thank you for attending my TED talk.

Great idea...WV category guaranteed fairness..I suggest a circle for this new class. Sorted.

Isn't this kind of proove that WVs and not SPGs are the problem?

Before WVs forum was full of "remove clikers" posts.:B

I think the Fl and the tier 10 are the only ones who are good, all the others are really bad, but those two are really unbalanced, specially gun handling.

Time for a stick like the arty discussion and MM threads  at least it gives the Mods a reason to shut them down and tell people to use the main thread

If they've got Wheelies and you have standard lights you have a massive viewrange advantage. Use it.

Just browse through all the whine threads and hover over the stats of the various individuals and watch to see the relation between complaining about them and the person having average/bad stats.

Now do the same in arty whine threads.

That's a completely different point to your claim that "pretty much everyone" despises arty. It's more of a tacit admission that good players hate being countered and would rather have free reign over the battlefield than deal with something opposing them. Still, if you'd prefer to have unbalanced battles as long as they're in your favour, that's up to you.
