Why do you guys just crap all over my beloved wz-132 you nerf its view range by 20. Why? You say you all have been taking in community feedback I really highly doubt that. Also, if your going to crap on a "scouts" view range I suggest your nerf heavy tanks and med that have 390 to 420 meter view ranges as well cause thats just bs.

I'm sure there are some high requirements to work at WG as long as it doesn't involve being able to influence the game. As far as being a dev I believe the requirements are: have never played the game, have little to no interest in the game, must score below a certain number on an IQ test, and have the ability to tell the players to go [edited] off.

Stun only goes on SPG guns 150mm and above...

I just hope that the compensation on the tier 8s (camo, emblems, and inscriptions) don't get screwed up.

You don't need 3 posts of patchnotes just say:

 

- Arty Buff (Damage nerf, Accuracy/Aim Time/Reload/Splash Buff + Stun (Not needed but whatever at this point))

- Murdering of Light Tanks

- MM changes that took 6 years to achieve

- Premium Arty/Lights receive no nerfs, but moderate buffs (AMX 13 57 buffed nicely)

 

There, simplified for you in under 70 words

 

... Don't have high hopes for this patch, which is a shame because when the notes were first released I was jumping for joy, But hey, at least WG HQ screwed up the AMX 13 105 enough to where now I have absolutely no need to drop ~$30 Gold on Free XP'ing the tank, Bat Chat 25t is still best light tank it seems... 

 

Well, pardon us for liking all the detail. Next time I hope WG does two patch note drops. One for you, and one for everyone else, cuz, really, it is all about you!

What's gonna happen with Nicol's Medal, Burda's Medal and Dumitru's Medal? You won't be able anymore to get them with this new MM.

Well, I guess the guys over on the Ruskie server really like these changes, or maybe they just didn't complain enough. They're the ones who could have stopped this mess before it started. The MM changes are honestly the best thing about this patch, and its still missing the one thing everyone has been asking for. The light and SPG changes are the biggest joke since Rubicon.

Light tanks were never supposed to be fighting tanks.

Refund. How about a total refund of all monies spent on this seeing as you are determined to destroy a whole class that some have played since beta. 

 

Good luck with that.

OK...  my 2¢

 

1) As stated by many, this is the last nail in the coffin of light tanks/scouting 1) maps that are bowling alleys 2) small maps (Ensk at tier 10?)

2) Unless I have missed it... what about the missions? I am so close to the OBJ 260. Do the arty missions change. My current arty mission is 4k damage & kill 2 arty. Tough as that is, it will be impossible with less alpha. So anyone that is close to the Stug/T28/T55a/260 can kiss those dream good bye.

Time to sell my ru 251, one of my favorite tanks in the game. Put so much work getting the tank and now the amount of nerfs that it's getting. Sucks that I kinda waisted a female crew in it too.

but after the nerf they dont even work for Spotting... they have WAY less view range compared to Meds (example B-C has 400 but AMX 13 105 has 390, [Also TVP has 420] same for T-100 and all other lights, ALL of them have less view range than the medium tank), So, if theyre Not supposed to be Fighting tanks, and they are Not Supposed to be Scout/Spotting tanks, what are they supposed to be?

you needed 1 nerf to fix the tier 10 lights....and that was T-100LT's armor to be nerfed

 

you did it......and a dozen stuff that wasn't needed...completely screwing it over

 

overkill much?

Take four guys, put them in a metal box with limited outside visibility and give them a cannon - and tell them that whatever they do they are not to get into a fight. Why the metal box and the cannon? Then, if you are Wargaming, paint over the viewports so they can't see anything either. GG well played

I think you mean Pascucci's, Dumitru's and Burda's medals. Well WG has f*cked them up imho. Pascucci's = kill 2 arty, Dumitru's = kill 3 arty and Burda's = kill 3 arty 1 tier higher. Essentially those of us who fulfilled the "kill 5 arty" for Burda's and 4 arty for Dimitru's get some "different medal". Instead of replacing the medals with something else for the new requirements, they just changed the requirements - and devalued the medals in the process. Another great move by Wartgaming 2017.

Headline - "Game Murdered - Suspects Still Got Paid"  :sceptic:

 

The gutting of the lites in WoT is absolutely moronic. Thanks for effectively nerfing every tank that depends on them, except the meta mediums. The +2 did not make lites "op"

They also got range and view cut both are totally useless now...along with the weight gain Burt put on..
