Since wheeled tanks came only one that plays light tank is for grinding the crapout and then sell it. No one plays regular light tank anymore and gun on ebr t8 premium should be nerfed to single shot only, t10 gun should be nerfed he pen so ppl need skill to penetrate with it. And for tier 8 premium, no one plays t92, m41gf bc of this crapebr double shot gun, that easily out shoot any tier8-9 regular light tank.

When they yolo and spot you instantly? Sure it's annyoing. And they will take the hill on mines before your tracked light etc. But that don't mean they won it.

 

In most cases on most maps. As I still play my 13 90 and ELC 90 lots. I just passive spot one line back vs normal for a few seconds if they have a wheelie to see if I see him there or not. More so then not you spot them moving down to yolo spot way before they have a chance to see you. The tier 8 has such a bad view range, that if you get an 80% camo bonus in total via bushes etc. He needs to be 100m or closer to spot you, you don't if he moves in the open with 445m view range. But if your support guns are in a position to hit him or not, or at all is a different matter entirely. But if they do, it don't need many hits before my clip can deal with them.

 

And even if the tier 8 was nerfed to a single shot. Would it make any difference on how he yolo spots your team? Or he hitting you with that traverse when you can't follow it? And 105 even with 75 HE pen like the tier 7. It still would do damage to your tier 8 lights, aimed or not.

 

And no one plays the M41GF? Well it was not a common sight before the wheels tbh. But it has high HE pen too with pre-nerf light DPM. It's a light I don't seek out as easily in my lights if it has full HP vs others. Regardless if I have wheels or tracks.

Sold my T92 a few days ago, pretty much unbuffable in the current meta

 

A really good player CAN use one effectively, but only in certain maps

 

Kept both my M41s though, they are still fun and its a good gun

In your last 1221 battles, the MOST games you have played in a high tier light tank is 11 in the M41 90 GF, with a 90% win rate and 1171 damage per game.

 

And yet during the same period you have played 49 battles in the Lynx 6x6 with a far worse WR and DPG

 

And 24 battles in the EBR 90, with again a worse win rate and DPG. 

 

So its funny that you have done way better in a tier 8 premium light than you have IN A TIER 9 wheeled vehicle. 

 

Someone is telling porkies.

WV's and LT's are mean for different play styles at different points in the match.

If you rush to the front in your LT while the match has just started, you get rekt. It's not rocket science. Use the second line from the front to light the WV for your allies and try to kill/damage it early on. Don't try to spot the whole team at the start.

Going aggressive to the most upfront bush might not be the best of ideas anymore if there's a wheelie on the other side, but it's not like our regular lights are obsolete now.

Be a little more patient. Wait for the wheelie to show his hand and adapt to it. Quite often they go too hard on the W and then you are free to go back to the usual business. :child:

Even before wheeled lights, I've found that counter-spotting the scout-rush bush is a great tactic.

If anyone is awake on your team, it can lead to a dead enemy light very quickly. 

If not, the scout at least knows that they are spotted.

 

And I'm out of +1s

Surely any half decent player would have quickly learned that LT play needs adapting when the Cars are in an MM?

 

WVs might be a slight issue at higher tiers vs the decent car players but chances are they'd outplay you regardless of vehicle anyway.

Indeed, so many people seem to think you have to all or nothing 'that bush' which most expect anyway when you can instead go 90% all in to a nearby bush and catch the enemy light out as you say. If you can do that and get the enemy light taken out that gives you the entire map to yourself.
