We all know he's posting from an alt account, duh. That's even more reason to not take anything he says seriously. 

 

So posting from an alt account about something that is a genuine issue with FL somehow makes my point any less valid? :P

You are the epitome of an elitest jerk.  Troll much?

Considering how terrible LTs are in randoms, it's kind of nice to have a place where they can be used to their full potential.

Not really, if I wanted to troll I'd create an alt account and then be super judgmental and confrontational …:trollface:

 

And if I have to explain to you why an alt account for posting is an issue, you're either a complete moron or going for that sweet passive-aggressive style trolling, although both could obviously be true.

Next you’ll be poasting about how unicums get special RNG. Troll it is then.....

And my congratulations, you’ve made the cut for the ignore preferences.

 

PS. If you’re poasting from an alt account you’re hiding something. If you’re posting from your actual account with 127 battles and those current stats, no one will ever take you seriously. Ever.

Just as Mediums have morphed in to better, smaller, more mobile Heavies, so have Lights morphed into better, smaller, more mobile Mediums.

 

At least you can track Light tanks...

No one cares what you want. BTW, address me in a PM not an open forum if you want it to be a private conversation.

As the title says, light tanks are beyond overpowered in Frontlines.  Out of roughly 20 games I've played this weekend, and out of those games GoA was awarded to people playing lights in all but one game.  My last game there were 3 GoA's, all went to people playing lights.  I have seen exactly 1 GoA awarded to someone who did not play a light tank at all.

 

One thing that I noticed is when an ELC Even 90 was taking out the turret 5 from the far right side of the map.  Why does a shell from a light tank able to even damage a turret from the side, much less from over 300m away?  Is there some sort of terrain exploit that removes dispersion from lights around the final objectives?  It is absurd how easy it is for a light to almost single handedly win a game.

 

Were those GoA light tank drivers good players, bad players, or mediocre players?

 

I would think LTs are disproportionately played by better players than some of the easier classes, and so claiming them OP because people did well in them is kind of useless if you dont note who those people are.

The proposed changes to make the armor 180mm is still going to be useless.

Premium ammo with a UDES is 320mm at 500mm.  390 average damage.  Roughly 1.5 minutes to kill.

With a WT, it's even sillier.  311mm pen ( you want the lower gun here as is fires AP faster vs HEAT, same gun as the Skorpion G )  6.46 ROF with skills/normal equipment.  490 avg damage.  5-6 shots to kill, 45-55 seconds.  Skorpion G is about 10 seconds slower to kill it.

Russian SPGs also can pull this off - all you need is AP ammo and the right gun.

I love answers like this one.  It goes in line with MM is fine the way it is, you just need to be better.  Its not about whether or not I should play a light tank, but rather the fact that lights played by even the most incompetent players can dominate the game.  Why should someone be forced to play a light tank in order to be able to get a decent score??  They shouldn't, everyone should have an equal chance which isn't the case right now.

 

I am glad you liked it. I said nothing about the MM, in my opinion the MM could use more work and if you look at my posts I have regularly pointed out my frustration with it. A horrible player in a light will get a horrible score. I had some of my best scores in my KV5. Got General in it once. Also had some great games in my Pantera and T44 Tech tree tanks. An equal chance? What does that even mean? Get out of your Heavy or TD. In my opinion TDs have broken camo and Heavies especially Defender have too few weak points. But I just try to adapt instead of automatically crying wolf about an entire class. You should have seen the KV5 at B once I got backed up to that house on the left hand side.

Ok, I think I figured this out. This guy had some weird idea for a reroll FL account and bought two heavies and a TS5 and got his behind creamed in this last FL so they should reduce the amount of lights so he can do better. Why didn't you buy a Tier 8 light? They are all decent tanks? Or a Progetto or t44-100?

So op, how do you recommended nerfing light tanks in a game mode then having them normal outside the mode?
