One of the main things that people resent with the wheelchairs in World of Tanks, is that you're unable to stop them, as you would a tracked vehicle.

 

They keep on going, maybe a bit slower, bit it allows them to get into cover. I hate that aspect to them also, I generally hate playing against them, full stop. However, I've got to play them to understand what they're capable of.

 

Has anybody ever seen one where all the tyres have been taken out at once, and it has come to a stop? I had never seen it before and I didn't realise it was possible, however it happened to me yesterday in the Hotchkiss. I couldn't understand for a second why the damn thing wasn't moving, then I looked down at the bottom left and saw all 6 wheels red. Quick repair kit and we were OK.

 

If you watch the full replay you will also get to see a bonus feature of my getting wedged up against a building unable to move. The incident in question is at roughly 11:30

Most I've ever had in during my grind to tier X was 4. But that only did occur once. And I drove 10km/h. 2 was more common tho.

 

Tbh I don't mind that they don't stop. But I do think the speed penalty on 1 and 2 wheels is a bit to little.

Yep, got hit by an arty that blew every single wheel off my EBR 90. Virtually tracked.

There, fixed it.

I didn't claim that I was good, only that the ones that keep complaining about them tend to be quite clueless. If the hat fits, that's on you.

I once was looking at a destroyed wheel chair in sniper mode and all its wheels were still spinning. But to me the biggest problem with them is the latency. It is there with all tanks but it is way too apparent at the speeds they are going, they are like ghosts, where you see them is not where they really are.

With your condescending attitude you could have fooled me.

Don't worry, you're still on the tier 7. Say something about getting wheels knocked off from tier 8 onward.

 

They do lose speed, and they do lose momentum, and if you get both front wheels out, good luck steering. They got plenty going against them, but you'll see that better as you play them. I reckon the tier 10 is when spotting actually becomes a thing for this line.

LOL so they are the headless chickens of wargamming :)

 

And for Surtung NO ! the clueless ones are the ones like you who are condescending. There is an issue with WV not as bad as arty but the next worse thing in the game. I never see a tracked light wizzing in and out of an area covered by it's enemys tanks and surviving but see it far too often and multiple times as well by the same WV  and either getting away scott free or with just a wobbly. Now if they can do that and still shoot enemy tanks with fantasy HE ammo from their star wars guns then yes they are broken and yes they need changing.
