This is seriously the worst idea yet, they have agility and speed, not mention the ability to bounce side shots and to keep moving - they dont need gun perks its just making another dumbed down class like arty and makes your terms of service seem hypocritical - that said it takes a lot more work for lights to get side shots on any tank while these tanks that were made for obvious simpletons can average more damage - Im surprised these things werent put in the russian tree at least that would make sense balance wise

Working as planned.  Nothing is more satisfying than a "circle of death" on a slower tank/TD (other than ammo racking) :great:.

You have 0 battles with a wheeled vehicle, you are clearly whining because you are a mediocre player that got killed by one of them...

 

I would tell you that you should use them, but that wouldn't work. Use a Defender, it is the only tank that can snap the wheelies and the armor is enough to avoid the circle of death.

The only thing that pisses me about wheeled vehicles is when I autoaim on them, it targets the rear of their vehicle, leading to many stupid misses.  Then when I go to zoom in and lead aim manually, sometimes the zoom suddenly goes to 32x or something absurd as well as jerking upwards.  Then when I'm frantically scrolling my mouse wheel back to correct that, I go back to third-person view, leading to more aiming weirdness inherent to that view.

 

My biggest problem with wheelies is fighting this goddamn UI to get it to do what I want.

I am SO bad at this game. But I love the wheelie. It's fun to run and the client aim-lock makes it even easier to use

That's basically why wheelies are good for the game, shakes up the TD and glass cannon meta in pubs. In games with only mediums and heavies wheeled tanks don't do nearly as well.

I have to admit that after circling an enemy I had to do a 4 wheel escape. I forgot I had my lock on him. I was almost half a map away when I realized he was still locked. I fired, on the move and got the kill.

 

Ridiculous!

You cant allow an ILLEGAL MOD on one tank and not another.... If they get it I want it on my lights as well. How is it the fastest tank in the game also has the best on the move dispersion? Yeah right

you have managed to fit many wrong things into your post and clearly put little thought into it - you sir are completely dense - 0 battles in a wheelie for one -

Yes. Perhaps the argument could be made that none of the classes really need the wider lock-on area, but I say that this simple convenience would be just as helpful to the others as it is to the wheelibois. Perhaps even more so if they have smaller, faster targets to deal with.

Auto aim is generally a bad idea imo. I wish WG would consider getting rid of that feature altogether. Getting a hit would be the result of true skill and not dumb luck. I would bet you that without auto aim in the game, battles would be a lot more balanced.
