If your half-blind then please don't run a medium tank :)

 

I do  just fine in mediums and lights.  I have female crews who take orders very well.

I'm pretty sure this bolted_on fellow is just a grumpy old man who doesn't like all these young whipper-snappers running around being better than him. No idea how he got into WANKO.

 

lmbo, PLEASE tell me when you ever were better ?    You young clueless little preemies hate it when an old phart kicks your behiney and makes you look noobly.

  Binocs take 3 seconds of SITTING STILL to activate.   By that time you are spotted and focused fire on by 4 enemies.  

 

 

Not if you position yourself using at least two brain cells.

I'd say I'm better in my last 1000 battles, and I'm still getting better whereas your stats appear to have leveled off a long time ago.

Absolutely nothing is wrong with the "BALANCE".   The light tank has far superior camo than the Patton.   Light tank players seem to just want to drive casually around the map, never being spotted, while spotting all the enemy tanks.   It takes more than that, such as knowing choke points, known spotting positions, use of terrain, and skill.   Whiners want it to be easy, it's not.  

 

Camo doesn't even enter in as a balancing factor.  Point of fact, most Lights have 3-5% more camo than an equal tier Medium.  Disregarding that it stays while they move, which is also crap when you're spotted in the open, it doesn't matter.  The maps aren't designed for actual Light play as it is needed which means Lights turn into crappy Mediums.  Mediums having as good of vision as Lights, in turn, makes no sense.  Pull your head out of your stubborn butt.

The answer is "neither". Leave it alone. Unless its part of a global rebalance to help light tanks, don't fcuk with it.

Can a IS6 get view range with a FULL perk crew?

The Patton is fine.  The VR is an issue but not because of what you're talking about.  VR in general needs a rebalance as it practically turns into Signal Range at T8+ with how things are curently.  The Patton having the highest med VR isn't really an issue though.  If you look at all US tanks they are typically on the higher end of the VR spectrum for the class/tier.  That's just one of the defining things of US tanks in WoT.

Depending on the tier and tanks, it isn't uncommon for meds to actually have BETTER camo than various LTs of the same tier when standing still.  LTs basically take a stationary camo nerf in order to maintain their camo while moving.

This post is a joke right... Patton OP... lmbo.... Patton fast.... Patton out spotting you... the guys you have faced most likely, LIKE me have had the patton a very long time. and have at least 5 if not more skills/perks on there crews! so they are maxing all aspects of the patton... which finally now is a decent tank for the average, a good tank for the above average, and a very good tank for those unicums.

 

Please don't nerf what you just buffed....ty

BIA, Recon, Situational Awareness, Vents, Food, Optics, Binocs

 

All the above have a positive effect on view range for any tank.  (open top tanks can't fit vents)

Seriously I don't know what WG is thinking. Patton only got its high view range is because it had terrible turret armor in which tier 8's could penetrate. Now it has an impenetrable turret keeping its amazing view range. But now with 420 view range and advance optic rendering camo net complete to uselessness. I swear WG should remove advance optic or reduce the max view range of all default tanks.

 

I see Patton spotting LT with 450mm view range. I get instant spotted within 450mm view range by Patton 46. Why use LT when you can use Patton? Patton is so freaking fast too. I played a map where heavies are driving up the hill. Yes tier 9+10 heavies. Patton got halfway to map already spotting the entire team. None of the heavies can seem to pen it and die slowly as Patton just peak and shoot really fast. Mind as will class Patton a heavy tank.

 

i wish i could dislike this post 100000 times

I see that you have more battles than me. And your knowledge to the game is prolly better. Question is.. Do you get off on picking on others that try to give the best advise that they know?.. If so.. You sir are Cancer

The view range on the Patton is one of its strengths that should not be nerfed.  Especially when there are other stronger "meta" tanks that have similar view range and there are other areas where it seems the Patton needs buffed.
