I thought I read that a wheeled tank would lose a 1 v 1 against a light tank?

https://www.merriam-...m/thesaurus/lie

When will light tanks be buffed to actually be able to beat a WV?

You know what thought did.

 

He didn't, he only thought he did.

Nobody ever said a light should 1v1 a WV, quite the opposite in fact.

Lights don't need buffing. You beat the WV with vision early on and you wait for the opportunity to kill it safely.

Which means leaving the iniative to the enemy team for as long as the WV is alive.

And if the two ever meet, the WV has significant advantages

- speed

- maneuverability

- easier autoaim lock

- HE that pens all LTs (except RU, of course...)

- turret travers that keeps up with its crazy maneuvers

I still think I read someone from WG say this as a placation to active scout LT owners long long time ago, along with the myth of them being 'blind as bats' to sooth passive spotters; if not let me hallucinate they wrote it in peace thank you. :P

 

But I do think I should mention my beef right now was playing my ELC and T 92 and being molested by EBRs. Those two light tanks just lack the reload speed (dps) or spot vision warning to have a hope against moving EBRs.

Light tanks got over nerfed, because Steve the IS7 driver wanted to. Now they are at the very best tier 8.5, at tier 10.

Not really, you just have to think a little.  They are almost always predictable.

It depends on what lights they face. WZ and the Russian lights have armor head on to troll and negate the HE dpm more so than not. Clip lights will bully wheels as much as wheels bully them. Some have the same or more HE pen as they have, with way more DPM to scare them off each time they come.

 

Then you have cripples like the SP1C or the UK lights that won't win anything vs anyone, even wheel AP DPM. So no... I would not say 100% of the time. But they have a good chance vs some, less so vs others. As not everyone runs 100% HE on them either. And most of them are running low or are empty late game for my lights to worry too much about it at times.

LTs DO need buffing, or reversing to their previous stats (preferrably MM too).

only the missions need adjusting to much less spotting ability.

I prefer having harder missions with capable machines than the opposite.

 

At least then you know it was due to your personal performance you did not succeed rather than being intentionally crippled.

SPG's send their sympathy.

AMD and Lynx kinda suck cause they are big and boxy.On the other hand EBR FL wipes the floor with other LTs,exept for the LT432 of course.

I would say some MTs and HTs need vision nerf.VK100.01 for example gets 400m at tier 8.

EBR killed the entirety of scouts. But in the first place they shouldn't even have implemented t10 lights at all, same for t10 arties.

Dicker Max gets 400m at Tier VI.

Go figure.

Lights don't need buffing, instead WV's hitbox needs to be completely reworked. :justwait:

You know normal people when they go to number 2 they wipe their rear end.

Do you wipe your mouth? Cos only thing coming out of there is crap
