So, as many now know, T10 light tanks were unveiled at Wargaming Fest, and I overall agree with their ideas, and T10 light tanks look cool, but there is some flaws id like to point out, at least in my mind. 

 

They plan to push all of the lights up a tier, (I.E RU 251 will be T9) and that's neat and all, But think about the clan wars. There isn't a need to change the clan war meta for this, and I think its a very bad idea. I see in pubs this will make tons of sense, but i'm just talking about clan wars here. 

 

The meta in terms of lights at Tier 8 clan wars, and Tier 6 for that matter, is completely fine in my eyes, and doesn't look like it needs a change at all, and I think that new content at T9 AND T10 is a good idea. I also think that this reduces the amount of faffing around with the lower tiered light tanks, and wont impact the clan wars meta at T8 and T6. Another point is, light tanks will have to use low caliber guns against heavies, witch they wont be competitive, where the caliber of the guns and penetration is where it really should be for lights in clan wars (in my opinion) and they shouldn't fix something that isn't broken.

 

Just my thoughts though, but there is a lot of time before the Tier ten lights are actually introduced. I however just want to start some conversation about it, everyone can have their own opinion about it, and if there is something I am missing, please let me know!

We can't tell yet how tier X lights will perform.

 

But at the same time why is changing up CW strats a bad thing? It's pretty stagnant as it is, IMO, and people seem to be so set in their ways on there they fear change. Frankly I'm surprised that the current meta has stuck for as long as it has.

They bypassed the beautiful production Sheridan for the prototype that looks like poo poo.

I have mixed feelings about this. I got the WZ-132 with the only purpose of using it as a tier 8 light tank in Team Battles. I don't and never planned to use my WZ-132 in PUB battles. I wonder how this is all going to look when its changed. My personal feeling is leave the lights currently where they are at and add in NEW tier 9 light tanks as well rather then shuffle around tanks people already have. I do hope however they come out with more tier 8 premium light tanks then. I like the fact they are making tier 10 light tanks, I think that is cool, I am just concerned about how they are going to do it.

currently still worse than a TierX med at spotting .maybe they will rebalance all the other tanks to be not so good at vision control and make LTs relevant.

 

although the T100 does look really sexy

I will work them up, mainly because I like scout tanks, despite the meta.

Like low power MEDs, no real mistery, without maps that alow long range fighting there is not much they can do

T10 LT will be grossly OP vs T8s and underpowered vs T10s

Way too early to call it, hell, people looked at the E-25 and said it was UP initially and wouldn't be able to perform. It's been said of many tanks which perform quite well, actually.

 

We simply don't have enough data to go off of, or test, to properly gauge abilities. You can't read too too much into paper stats for game-play.
