(10 tier) EBR when coming to the game, update videos said these tanks will not replace light tanks because their view range will be low. but EBR have 440m view range (already max 445m). it is so good.

now light tanks just good for passive spot with telesccope but LT's when spotted dying so fast bc they are not as fast/agile as EBR. EBR's knows where are LT's doing passive spot and EBR running to these points, killing them at the beginning of the game.

 

SO these tanks no longer work well. RIP LT's

In general, these wheeled rats along side with x3 SPG's on both sides destroyed the last fun of this game...

it's funny, i had a tier 10 game yesterday... open map, 3 ebrs on enemy team and 3 arties. my team had 2 ebrs. so those 3 ebrs with arties ate our lt, td and 1 arty. in about 3 min those 3 scored around 6500 damage and a lot spotting damage

Are you able to read in this forum?

Are you able to use the search function?

Do you have any clue about LT at all?

 

3x No!

You can boost the tX view range to 470 m.

A good/very good player in EBR is so deadly ...

 

I understand that going at over 100 kmh and jumping over almost everything must me very funny but it's another game.

So you say they killed other LTs. Why is it that I'm outperforming myself in the EBR 105 with my Manticore? I find the Manitcore, and frankly the 13 105 as well as T-100LT still very capable tanks.

The clown cars are just beyond stupid and need big nerfs. Their addition has changed gameplay much to the worse and i wish nothing but the worst for them

So with that in mind will WG be giving people with other Lts their xp back for the entire grind seeing as it was WASTED ? Dunno ...Would people take advantage of that ..You bet they would

The moment wheeled vehicles came into World of TANKS the game died even a little more..

I can see how some players see these filthy pest rat vehicles as fun because they are probably trolls in real life and every place they come as well.

 

I personally hate these things and it has nothing to do with tanks anymore. Its garbage its filthy and it shows WG is poor in almost every decision they have been making the last few years.

But hey for some reason they cant get it into their thick skulls and realize its making people more angry and turning away then actually doing good.

This issue related to WVs has frankly bored and has become predictable on the forum, every day and every week someone opens a thread asking the nerf of these vehicles when they should probably improve their hit rate % and understand that an ebr at any tier is very easy to destroy with a pair of HE ammunition, and above all when in the opposing team there are one or more ebrs to play accordingly without going to commit suicide at the beginning of the game but to make sure that the opponents ebrs [forced to spotting in movement and in extremely advanced positions due to their poor spotting range] making the first mistakes and then effectively spotting the opponents.

Exactly. I've significantly increased the HE loadout on my regularly played LTs because of WVs and have no issues dealing with them

View range is irrelevant when you're 30% faster than anything else on the battlefield.....

It's really not hard to outplay WVs in lights, you just have to adjust your play -

 

http://wotreplays.eu/site/5168347

 

Just take a more conservative bush location, use range and concealment to outspot the WV and force them back. 

 

If anything IMO having a light tank played by someone who knows what they are doing vs a WV is a massive advantage because they can completely control the vision, this usually only fails if your team is completely terrible at shooting or leaves a flank open for the WV to just dance through (or another light as this happens pretty much as much anyway). 

 

The problem comes by the fact that most light tank players are terrible and do the same thing they always did, which is yolo rush somewhere to a very risky position and when they face a WV they drive around in the open having an auto-aim fight with them. These players then come to the forums whinging WVs are OP when they played terribly against them.

What travels faster, a shell moving at 1500 m/s or a vehicle moving at 80-90kph? Hmmmmmmn, your comment makes absolute no sense and has no logic to it.

 

The Leo 1 is the fastest medium in the game, even if every other medium in the battle went 50kph, the Leo 1 is not suddenly going to be OP or be able to defeat correct usage of view range and camo.

You know what to do, get on the horn with the staff to finally get the ''The big WV discussion thread'' pinned on the top. :P

It would not change anything, as the threads relating to the arty and the MM also appear every week as mushrooms despite the existence of specific threads for these discussions present in the forum.

Logic: Their speed makes them impossible to hit and speed is the only good thing LT have. WV have lots of speed hence they are OP. Simple, ain't it?

When a clown car drives through the middle of the team and nobody is able to hit it, one could argue its the player base that is too bad for the EBR. Or the other way around: The EBR is too good for the playerbase. Although the forum elitists want everything to revolve around them, the regular joe matters. They are the players that keep the game alive and seeing how the numbers have dropped it is obvious that they have been scared off by many bad decisions which the clown cars are definitely the worst of

I have the EBR F1 from the marathon and play it in FL.Not interested driving it in randoms.

 

Broken or not they disrupt the gameplay.

 

1) Fix the hitbox,they "eat" big shells for breakfast.

2) Remove autoaim in general....Hitting people 500m away autoaiming while going with 100km/h is hilarious.

3) yolospotting is back in fashion.

 

Maybe we should start playing rocket league to practise our reflexes as boomer playerbase.

Not everyone is firing 1500m/s shells to hit them reliably :trollface:

You are only one datapoint. It's a team game with a spectrum of people playing.
