Yah, I went the HE Route because I was trying to keep the Cost Down....      I'll have to consider the Non Stop Moving because this thing REALLY Feels like it has a Neon Sign hovering over it otherwise.....

 

I already have my A45 set to Full Premium because of Tier 9's, straight HE the T92 is a Royal PitA to alotta Tanks....

I've found with the T92LT you want to constantly be moving the entire game, EVEN WHEN SHOOTING!  The gun does suck and I tend to shoot a fair amount of gold ammo when i'm driving it.  If you get into a chasing brawl with this tank it can really wreck some tanks, it shoots on the move better than any tank I've played.

 

And I have found the exact opposite to be true.  The T92 has plenty of camo and vision so that you can do both passive and active scouting at most points of the match (be aware...top speed is rather lacking).  And the gun is actually very handy/accurate, even on the move.

Warchild, dis you go for the 13 57 and buy it??

 

Yes I did b/c I love auto-loaders and where are you going to get 8 shots in rapid succession?  (PS - Watching Circon play this tank made me want it)

Yep, I killed the last remaining TD (Styer) with a little rop-a-dope move around the middle hills...

how is what you wrote the opposite of what i wrote?  With the exception of passive scouting, you basically stated the same thing.

I'm not very impressed with tier 8 lights as a class, relative to their peers both at tier 7 and tier 9 these light tanks really could use some love, especially in the current meta. And since the re-tiering many of these tanks just aren't as impressive in their respective tiers. For most that's compensated by now having better MM, but for the tier 8s that argument is harder to make. 

 

But as of the ones we have, I'd point to the T92 and M41-90 as the most practical. In the case of the former, it has the mobility, camo, and view range to be a decent scout and can fire on the move effectively, which is a good synergy. And as of the latter, it actually has an appropriate amount of firepower for the fast skirmishing role. And for both, being premium is an important trait because it means you can run food and still turn a profit. And food is a noteworthy advantage over a light tank that doesn't have it. Same for gold ammo.

I have these:

 

HWK 12
M41 Bulldog 
LTTB
B-C 12 t
ELC EVEN 90
LTTB
WZ-132

 

... and as of right now, my favorite is probably the LTTB, and maybe the B-C 12 t is in second place, BUT.... I haven't played the HWK 12 much, I only got the EVEN 90 today, and the others I haven't played in a while.  Might not have played the Bulldog since it lost it's autoloader

 

The LTTB is nearly perfect thanks to it's incredible mobility and great gun.  It's only weakness is it's poor gun depression.  The B-C 12 t because I love Scouts and I love Autoloaders.  Win Win.

 

EDIT:  Only played 9 battles in it, but my new favorite might be the ELC EVEN 90 already.  Amazing as a pure scout!  While the DPM is awful, it's rare that bad DPM is a huge issue with an autoloader scout.  You're generally looking for isolated tanks that you can take out in one clip.  During the reload, you can get back to scouting.  I think this is my new go to credit maker too.  I was getting bored of playing the likes of the Lorr and Skorp at Tier VIII to make credits, and I found myself playing the 13 57 GF a LOT, just for the fun factor, even though it was a tier lower, and it's earning potential not as good.  Now I can have my scouty autoloading fun, and make credits.  Good times ahead.

The HWK is a more passive type playing tank, with uber-slow AP rounds that feel kinda derpy.  It makes up for it with speed, camo, and excellent view range, however...so it can be made to work quite well for assisted + actual late game clean-up dmg.

M41GF can’t be beat. Same reason why Type 64 and Type 62 are tiers 6-7 kings as well, no light nerfs

 

T92>WZ132>LTTB>ELC otherwise your choices. Rest are trash. Wait fo T44 light and awful panther return, before you decide to buy T92 or ELC

 

T44 and progettos are the best meds to use as backup lights. Definitely not CDC, that is for sure

LT-432,  LTTB, & WZ-132 if you like fighting & don't mind having no gun depression :izmena:
T92, ELC EVEN 90, & Bat Chat 12t for scouting:hiding:
HWK 12 & HWK 30 if you want to be a TD that can also scout & have the best Gun Depression.:bush:
M41 Bulldog, M41 90mm, M 41 90mm GF, M41D you want to scout AND are smart enough to back up until the bush between you & the target is solid before you fire. Tech tree M41 has good gun depression all premium models lose a degree or 2.:ohmy:
Lynx 6x6 & EBR 75 FL 10... you didn't mention wheelies so I'll leave that for you to discover.:ohmy:
Still working with the Senlac & for that matter all my Tier 8 LT crews are still skilling up... :justwait:
Option 42: Engage the in game comparison tool, select all Tier 8 lights, put the desired skills & equipment on them all & read between the numbers which one aligns best with your play style :B

I'd forgotten all about this Thread....     lol

 

Well, since my Last post I added a Few more Light's to the Garage, all the Armored Cars, the 41/90, HWK30, and the Even 90 amongst them....     Of them all, the Armored Cars and the Even 90 are amongst my Better one's as is my 13/75.....    

 

The 2 Best Games so far in my Recently Acquired Even 90....

There is another Higher Damage Game than the ine on Airfield, but I think the Airfield Game was just all around a Better Game.....     Shows some of the ways the Tank Works, despite my Inabilities in Light Tanks....     lol

 

And 4400 Spotted/Assisted in the 13/75, an Under Rated Tank in my Opinion....

M41 90, since it didn't receive a nerf when they removed scout MM. 

 

Same thing can be said for the 13 57 (Why they even sold this thing after the MM changes is beyond me...) and the Type 64. 

 

Seriously, these things are more "op" than the defender ever will be and people don't even acknowledge them because they're light tanks...

 

Definitely OP in the hands of the talented. The 13 57 is not OP with the standard rushout and die then rage player though. IF XVM shows that tank is a winner I stay away from them in even in a tier ten unless I can spot them into their oblivion.
