Surely WOT will do something about the EBR and the rest of the over powered lights.. The game is being ruined by them. WOT spent many years developing a tank game that was both graphically interesting and technically impressive.  They have sought to make game play as realistic as possible and now with the introduction of the EBR and it's cousins have turned the game into a cartoon. Please WOT... not all the players are children.

This guy is on to something, nerf that pesky Manticore in particular.

Not sure what game you're playing but if it's this one, WG "dimmed" the lights a long time ago so that "Overpowered" and "Light tanks" are simply incompatible terms.

 

Quite the opposite, all other LTs should be elevated to the EBR's current level of relevance. As per the higher Tiers, of course. Tiers VI, VII and the Tech Tree VIII are nothing special and quite underwhelming.

Hm... yes... nerfing LTs...

Or does OP actually mean buffing them so they're finally competitive?

Basically all of them are underperforming.

Sheridan: -3% WR from player average.

WZ-132-1: -4% WR from player average.

AMX 13 105: -2-3% WR from player average.

Rheinmetall Panzerwagen: -4% WR from player average.

T-100 LT: -1% WR from player average.

 

But hey, Steve up there with his 48% WR thinks they're overpowered.

Is this one of these topics, where you realize, that there are some people, where the lights are on, but nobody is home?

To be fair to OP, I think that this was a moan about Wheelies rather than about Lights

The only gripe I have with WV's is them yoloing arty. Other than that, they're fine.

Is this one of those usual threads where the OP throws out some ill thought out comment and then vanishes to a land that time forgot (hence the name probably).

 

Sought to make the gameplay as realistic as possible.

 

So you get told to get to a point on a map, get lost on the way there, wait a long time when you're there for nothing to happen, then chaos ensues, you get lost again, and then someone tells you a new point on a map. That sort of realism?

 

Unless you mean the realism of a light bulb appearing over someones tank just as the tracks are magically repaired by fairies without the crew leaving the tank.

 

The game is inspired by real tank warfare. It's NOT real tank warfare.

 

Maybe they got their inspiration for fake photos like these?

This would have made some sense if it was only about the EBR105, but I don't understand what your issue is with the other lights.

Most LTs are fun but not as easy to do well in.

 

I recently started playing the Manticore and the T-100 LT and I'm having loads of fun, but nobody seems to be claiming that they're OP.

I wonder why that is?

Remove the tier9 and 10s LT done.

Aside from that being highly unlikely, what exactly would it fix?

They still have to remain competetive, regardless of what tier they are at.

Or are you suggesting I should be able to fight E100s in a VK 28.01 again, because in that case I want my 105mm derp gun back. :P

Can we appreciate the awesome dim the lights pun made by OP? Good stuff, sir.

 

WG should at least remove the artificial gimping from tier 10 lights. For example the penetration drop off makes no sense.

Maybe WG could just remove guns from tier 10 lights completely, shooting enemies interferes with their intended purpose and game design.

When will wot dim the lights as in the  will wot shut down the servers?

Well, if you go by the trend provided by statistics from wot-life, RU servers will have as many players as EU has today in roughly 16 years. My guess is that EU will be merged into RU servers rather than shut down if the player base gets too low (and RU should go below that threshhold later than EU due to having lots of more players). How many players is needed for the game not to shut down? In case it's 100k, it will shut down in like 32 years, not bad for a internet game I must say. And that is if WG don't manage to break the current trend to the better or worse.
