I just watched the WoT video on the new wheeled vehicles which are arriving soon. The first video focuses on the Panhard EBR - a very impressive vehicle. This concerns me as I play mostly arty and TD. Forget their "active spotting" mission, the Panhard EBR looks custom built to kill TDs and SPGs. I'll be very interested in how it performs on the test server. My sense is that these new wheeled vehicles are OP and will have a huge negative effect on TDs and SPGs.

I hope they will find a way to not totally erase the arty and TDs role with this thing, if that happens you will see a even bigger unhappy crowd and more quit the game. But I am sure they will come up with something. Lets see how the test goes.

This game needs less arty and TDs so it could only be a good thing. That being said you are severely overestimating the capabilities of wheeled vehicles. They might be able to suiscout for arty at the beginning of the match but with their extremely low view range and HP pool? They'll probably die way before they get close enough, especially at high tiers.

 

TDs have nothing to fear from LTs, these crappy LTs wont dent them one bit.

Step One : Ruin light tanks.

Step Two : Replace them with Armored cars.

Step Three ?

WG needs to stop treating us like Toddlers. LOOK KIDS >>>>>>>>>>>> SHINY !       You WANT to buy them all!

.

fIX THE problems with the Corridor Maps, and the Effed-up MM templates..

This "new feature" will prob.. end up breaking stuff, as usual..

Not needed, not asked for by old-timers..

Probably will impact arty negatively. But then they have a reason to buff arty. :)
