So, i guess you were waiting for yet another rant topic about british lts, how crap they are. at least not yet, today i decided to grind yet another line, just because im getting a bit bored sometimes and its one of the last lines left for me, not touching china tds and top lts for now. On paper this thing looks quite bad to say the least, but would i call it the worst tier 7 lt? i dont think so, just because a lot of tier 7 lts have abysmal penetration - so whats the point of the dpm if you cant pen anything or your accuracy and aim time sucks. i guess thats why setter works with its terrible dpm, because it has pen, acc and great aim time, only sp1c come near to setter dpm wise, but weirdly enough i enjoyed sp1c as well(current version of it).

 

I have played quite a few tier 7 lts in past few years after lt rebalance, before rebalance i only had 13 90 as top tier lt and played afk panther when i was a bot.

 

after first 12 battles in setter - 67% wr(1 ace), 1531dpg, 1.4 avg kils and 3,4 avg spot

 

if i compare it to some otrher "recently played" lts - recent is like in past 2 years or so :D

wz-131(great mt-lt hybrid) - 25 battles, 60%wr, 1552 dpg, 1.5kpg and 2.6 spots

t71cmcd(the single shot thing) - 49 battles, 61%wr, 1325dpg, 1,7 kills, 3,06 spots

LTG(cyclope) - 30 battles, 60% wr, 1630 dpg, 1,5 kills, 2,3 spots

sp1c - 40 battles, 67%wr, 1580dpg, 1,5kills, 2,9 spots

 

So, at least after first 2 hours of gameplay in it, it doent look any worse than other tier 7s, at least comparing my avg performance in other tier 7 lights, usually 10 battles is enough for me to tell, if i will hate the tank and its just not working for me at all :D like it has happened with some turret-less tier 10 crap.

 

was the setter worst one in the line? or was it MTV LH whatever :D but that thing gets tier 8/9 med pen values.

 

p.s. [edited] prints wn8 like mad man  ~ 5,4k :D

 

edit: i needed a good crew, so i sacrificed centurion 7/1, dont beat me up too hard, but how i see it is that - i scrapped one old trash, to get some new trash :D 

i pretty much never played it anyway, as its simply outdated as eff - i can work with low dpm autoloaders, but a low dpm single shot medium without a decent premium shell to deal with tier 10 abominations? yeah, no tnx.

Call me crazy but I tried Setter for a few battles and found quite decent. EDIT joke of a DPM but as you said, gun has pretty good pene, accu, aim, handling, ... And even with editty DPM its tier7, and the lower the tier, the more effective LTs can be, just because on lower tiers they can abuse their view range/camo more than on high tiers. I really think I will buy Setter back and keep that one, from the UK lights.

Hmm, could be another reason for me to buy it back, as my recent WN8 gets screwed everytime I play derp sheridan sessions :D

Setter is the only good one tier for tier on that line IMO. I'll play that over most other tier 7 scouts inc the worthless SP1C.

well i am going for manticore, 2nd best camo after ebr is good enough for me, to make such lt work, sheridan is simpy not a light, its a bad medium. why do i need manticore? well mostly just because, whenever we get next set of personal missions, i want to have at least 1 us/uk light. us lights are bad mediums, i wish they balanced them a bit differently.

Only problem with Setter is it's simply too slow, Progetto 46 is only 2kmh slower, Cromwell runs away from it, considering the setter evolved into the Scorpion family, and extremely high mobility vehicle, having it this slow is plain stupid!

balance :D p.s. i finished setter today, i like lhmtv more.

edit: at last got my wr up in lhmtv :D 

first ace - at 11th battle - prokhorovka 12k spotting :D did lt-15 with honours as well lol, killed enemy wheeled pleb in first minute and then sit in a forward bush, that usually no one suspect :D

well it's not socialist LTG or capitalist T71DA, what were you thinking?

LTG is the best allrounder, while T71 can clip alot of things.

Wait until you meet the GSOR - then you will discover what terrible truly is.

I have to say, this tank has no redeeming feature that makes it worth playing. None at all. Sure, great gun handling but what's the point of that if you can't kill anything except very slowly.... very very slowly, but when it comes to the vinegar strokes - you're always going to end up second.... it can't even circle strafe

Suburbian myths. Stop scaring off tankers from that vehicle line.

GSOR is a gem! At least mine is.

I am presently doing a daily double on the Setter each day.

It is not really an experience that I am enjoying.

Waiting for the gun to reload is tragic.

I was astonished how awful it actually was - will persevere though as I very much want the Manticore, just cuz it looks so very odd :D

The Manticore has to be one of the ugliest looking tanks in the game tbh. I'm still waiting for Edweird to upload his Manticore remodel publicly so others can actually enjoy making the tank look.. well, not as ugly.

'tis an odd one for sure.

LTG fits that brief quite nicely too - directly from the front, it looks like it's had a stroke :D

played another 6 battles just now with LHMTV - won 5/6 with 2k dpg and 1,7k assist per battle. I probably should i grinded them sooner, i know im a weird one, but just as i said - i can make light tanks work, if they behave like ones, unlike US crap - so far 20 battles in LHMTV - 65% wr 1666dpg + 1,5k avg assist per game - if this a bad performance for a light tank, then i am a tooth fairy :D

p.s. any forum moderator who reads this, could rename this topic pls - to something like british lts are not bad/one pleb likes them or something, tnx :) your choice how to rename it, but its clearly not about just the setter anymore ;)

You can rename it by going to edit post, then use the full editor while editing the OP.
