you can't even recruit non paying players, never mind paying players to drive these god awful British tanks, what makes you think you can recruit crews to go into them.

 

I discussed this with my Cromwell crew about moving to a setter light tank and I was greeted with choruses of "He'll no, we won't go!" and "We shall not, we shall not be moved!"

 

case closed as far we're concerned :izmena:

Is that the British light tanks which I have no intention of playing until I can find a reason to play them over any other tank in the game which is better?

Weekend specials used to be really special.  Friday morning was an exciting time and if the announcement was late there would be people chomping at the bit (ie moaning) to find out what the special was.

 

Now they are just dull.  This one is especially dull.

 

WG basically screwed up the crew training XP model with the exponential doubling so for any crew that's got more than 2 skills (i.e. ~ 800k XP) this "special" is all but irrelevant as the progress is so mind numbingly slow.

 

This is why WG keep giving out female crew (this new Czech tank and xmas) or special crew (Swedish Meds) all the time.

I have found a use for the british lights! Since everybody wants to get a kill of the newest tank, I have been able to use the Setter as a bait. The moment they see you they seem to forget everything else. In the last battle a SP1C chased my tank through half the map before getting destroyed :D

'Now that Update 1.6 has been released, you have surely recruited new crew members to man your British light tanks.'

What on earth gave you that idea, oh, maybe sticking your collective head in the sand while shouting lalalala. :hiding::hiding::hiding:

The Brit LT line has been community signposted as stay away until adequately balanced. :P

The only positive remarks I have found come from...wait for it, wait for it... WG. :facepalm:

So, if you subscribe to the view that WG give out honest and helpful information on their product, well, that's your burden! :rolleyes:

Waiting for the Buffs to come for the British tanks and they will have to be really good ones.

Training crews for them nope

You didn't even release the Premium British light before the line was released something you usually do.

This makes me think there is a lot of discussion going on at the moment about the mistakes that were made and what to do about it.

 

What was required was fairly obvious the British tech tree needed a line of Light tanks that went from tier 1 to tier 10.

Tier 1-4 exists and arguably so did tier 5 till the crusader became a medium.

What you did was make a tier 7 8 9  and 10.

That's not acceptable at least not to me and not very good for future players of the line.

 

Train a light tank crew pay to convert them to a medium tank crew then pay again to convert them back to light.

You are better than this and we have certainly come to expect better.

Its the worst thing to happen to a light line since you messed with the French lights and ruined the ELC

I still hope that one day you will fix that by giving it back the engine it actually had and doing what you should have done move it up a tier and create some other rubbish tier 5 light.

Yep , exactly !

This year the "specials" have been anything but. Copy pasting that God awful XP Fever every month and now this lazy effort. 

What really rubs salt in the wounds is the special they are getting on the RU servers.

No, they dont need training; they need to fail a psychology test to see if they are crazy enough to go into battle in the Brit LTs.

Have a like :great:


 

As to the OP, no they don't. I'm not stupid enough to ever want to try them in their present state.

I wonder how people think about the British lights on the RU server. Here on EU nobody likes the new branch for obvious reasons.

What are the reasons?
