Why would anyone bother with this butchered class anymore? Wheeled [edited]RC carts laugh in your face as they 360 mlg noscope you from across the map doing 80 kmh, camping TDs outspot and lolsnipe you at the edge of the rendering distance.

 

But no, we can't nerf arty because players wouldn't want to play a useless class, right?

Exp pinatas for the enemy, especially wheeled race cars with high HE pen.

The point of light tanks is to get eaten up by wheel chairs.

In reality none, excluding the t100lt and ebr105 from this list, the light tier X are all very bad vehicles in many aspects.

 

Same thing for lower tier vehicles excluding some specific vehicles and some tier 8 premiums.

That is the hypocrisy, with t100lt (that is better than ebr) almost no one complained for obliterating all other lights, now everyone found a new reason (after arty) to cry on forums

It's like watching Eastenders on Christmas Day - Now matter how crapyour day has been, watching that will make you feel better about yourself.

 

Same with how horrendous your Light Tank gaming experience has been, you will enjoy all other classes that much more.

 

That said I actually enjoy playing lights for the most part. Definitely feels worse since the EBR's, but I can't drive those for love nor money - so tracks all the way for me!

Pretty sure most of us felt that the T100LT was where it was supposed to be - all the other lights were just crap and required buffing.

Sweet spot for light tanks is Tier 6 but mostly Tier 7, stick to those tiers if you want to play competitive light tanks.

hypocrisy? what hypocrisy? I expressed my opinion about what I think of light vehicles, excluding ebr105 and t100 the others are really useless.

 

What would be hypocritical about this?

Why dont WG could just increase these "slow" scout tanks view range by +50 meters? Make passive scout great again. If peoples want to YOLO with tanks they can do it with armored cars and tanks like Bulldog could be superior passive scout even it has one of the worst camo values and its big as medium tank. Risk/reward you know?

Im destroying my personal statics with bulldog right now so buff please? PLEASE!

Get a better crew in your LT. theres no way that a wheely outspot my m41 90mm.

Most times i out spot him by miles...and than its hoping some teaammates finish him off or atleast put pressure on him.

And before they buffed the Lt's it was a specialist class.

Most times it where verry experienced players playing them with off course a good crew and map knowledge.

To fix this WG need to make LT always bottom tier again.

Lights will spot wheeled vehicles for the team easily if you know how to play . You can then use your light to help win the game , usually about 1 minute after the game starts and the wheelies are all dead. A good wheelie player though can be a real pain , but not too many of them about .

The point of Tier 8 Light tanks is to feed Tier 10 Troll tanks

 

Glad I could help

Way too many times i manage to spot the EBR but then it just YOLOS into my face and then im pretty much done. And ofc my own team doesnt manage to hit the wheelie at all while enemy team slaughters my slow [edited]tracked light in seconds. "old" light tanks feel much more situational now than ever before. Im also grinding the french LT line atm and playing these EBR:s is just hilarious. Im not saying the wheelies are OP or Broken im just feeling that most of the old light tanks could use some buffing. Least the bulldog could have its old magazine back to make it a bit more interesting to play.

And also im talking about the USA version bulldog not the German one. German one has 20m more view range and gun which has crazy good HE pen (better than wheelies) and damage. It eats most of the wheelies alive. USA bulldog can only dream of that.

T100LT is due a buff believe me it is going to happen ..IVAN cannot let the side down ..I foresee either an auto lock on like the french wheeled or a huge upgrade in speed or camo ...
