Light tanks were never supposed to be fighting tanks.

 

Were you dropped on your head as a child?

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?

 

Whatever he wants them to be - useless

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

 

Light tanks are confused tanks now.

 

The whole patch discussion has been that a tier VII could never compete in a tier X match, so they +2/-2 them... and then inexplicably nerf everything about them so they won't be viable in a tier IX match lol. I had very high hopes for this patch and yes the MM may be good, but as a light tank enthusiast, this has been heartbreaking. Which is a shame I get that way over a game but when 60% of my 3 marks are on tanks that are getting a beatdown, it's frustrating.


 

HOW can the M41 Bulldog lose 40% of its clip potential and yet still have its reload lengthened? How can the AMX 1390 have its clip reduced by 33% and its reload lengthened? It makes NO sense. Cut the clip size, fine! But reduce the reload accordingly.

WG ...  you need to remove the platoon bonus for every class.  If you are not going to allow arty to platoon, then you shouldn't have platoon bonus for any class.

 

The logic you used to disallow arty to platoon because they helped their team mates also applies to all other classes.   Every time I see a platoon of meds, heavies, td's they all go the same way.

Worst patch I've been involved in since I started playing.

 

I just finished grinding the tier 8 LTs before the rework was announced.

 

Now I have a bunch of soon-to-be-useless light tanks.

 

Could I choose to opt out of this patch? I'm sure many people would join me.

I've been playing lights since the highest tier lights at tier 4 saw up to tier 9 and the VK 16.02 Leopard was the considered the best light in the game... and this is the worst thing you've ever done to lights. Even with all the small brawl-centric maps now.

 

Also, Crusader and M7 Medium changes why?

I am sick to my stomach over these light nerfs! The +2 matchup is negated by the gun nerf on the t37. With these op tier 8 tanks like the defender you went from tough to pen to impossible to pen. I have 2 crews ive wasted time building in my 37 and bulldog. The the+2 comes out to being one of your biggest nerfs since the hellcat and the m48. I didnt get enough tier 9 matches in my t37 to make it worth this and you moving up the bulldog is another nerf plus dropping the clip from 10-6. I put a female crew i cant change nations on my bulldog. what a friggin waste! thanks for ruining this game i will be un installing after this update so much time wasted on crews i wont be using anymore.

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. 

 

I totally agree this is the biggest alienation of group of players they have ever done!

Damn, that's some long patch notes. At least when it comes to patches WG still gives the proper information. Not like micropatches.

Thanks for the heads up, although it should've come officially much sooner. One day's notice only is not enough.

We've been asking some of these changes for years. Why don't they try and see at least?

 

WG changes things - they whine

WG doesn't change things - they whine

It'll never compare to 8.6 and I'm rather looking forward to these changes and the graphics upgrades soon. I'm really OK with some fantasy to an arcade game.  I'm even looking forward to the 6% of my games played in SPG's and the 11% in lights. So the sky isn't falling and the sun will come up on schedule.
