Hi,

Firstly, I am not looking for player comment. Please desist.

 

Dear WG,

I cannot understand why you would release such am underpowered new tank line: the British light tanks. I am currently trying to advance the LHMTV. It has LOW ALPHA damage for a 9.4 second reload. The premium EBRs reload their two shell magazine in the same time and have far superior gun handling, speed, bounciness, everything except view range, and let's be honest, the LHMTV basic view range is a joke [especially as you sold the range as great passive spotters].

Playing the tier 7 and 8 British light tanks seems like a punishment. Why would WG release such a poor new tank line? I really would like to see some comment by WG to explain this situation, Just admit your mistake and rebalance the line (tier X gets only 18 shells???) or explain why you believe it is a valid and competitive line?

 

Continued silence on this subject from WG would confirm that they simply do not care about the community, and to some extent, the situation of their game. Another frustrating subject is the number of players at higher tiers who simply do not understand basic game play but I will reserve criticism of this to another topic: but understand this WG, as with the badly-designed [NEW] British light tank line, the reason for the increase in players at high tiers who "play like noobs" is completely due to your [WG] technical and commercial choices.

Then why write on the players forum?...perhaps you'd be better taking the time to contact one of the dev's yourself.

If you want to get into contact with WG then you're posting in the wrong place. You'll have to go to the Russian forum.

Because that line is for very good and great players.

It couldn't possibly be that they simply don't care about your individual opinion and rather use their own data as a metric by which to judge the impact of their changes.

 

Not that I believe they do that very well, mind you, but a statement like that reveals the kind of arrogance that results in service and product providers systematically ignoring their customers.

Try Facebook or Reddit if you seek 'official' WG rep, they do not tread on these walks.

 

And no player goes to Facebook or Reddit, so you have your safe space there.

British lights are fine, maybe a bit faster reload and a few extra shells but that's it.

I think his lawyer will now send 'cease and desist' letters to each one of you.

 

You ought to be ashamed of yourselves, he even asked politely.

It has been a WG tactic for quite some time to release a tank line and then slightly more powerful tier 8 premium. It happened with Italian meds and Chinese TDs.

 

Why would WG care about regular tanks when they can sell premiums.

You are wasting your time here then.

 

And stats wise the British lights are doing fine so it will be a while before they get adjusted.  You can blame the pro players for that.

I've been checking the British lights for a couple of weeks since this thread started, and they barely reach expected wincurves. At tier X you've got to be at least a 51% player before you can get >50%. The tier 7 is quite poor.

 

Now you can argue that this is in fact balanced design, but they're competing against different lights.

 

I have found them good against camping TD's with their alpha. But you have to take your time against the dyed in the wool camper. They are harder to kill off, but you just need the right tactics and then they're gone.

You wanna have the community to be silent and in the very same post you insinuate something about others being silent? Not very coherent posting.

 

What if the people you wanna ask do play the game and simply adhere to your ridiculous demand of players not commenting? Ever thought about that? I guess not.

WG don't use wincurves so we can stop there.
