Nothing like squashing the hopes and dreams of poor poor arty bois, Wonder if everyone complaining about Wheelies are arty mains?

Also, please ignore the subhuman IQ in the first all of the game, I'm new to wheels, been awhile since AW and Wiesel death spam.

 

 

 

 

All joking aside, While hilariously fun, wheels need to be balanced against wheels, they are grossly OP in terms of vision abuse and current LT countering

It needs that Mano voice, man!  

 

They are exceedingly good at deterring traditional light tanks from being aggro.  Though I don't fear wheelies in my T49 due to the delete-o-matic9000 it carries.  If your balance is in a sense of "enemy has wheelie, so will other team" which I agree with.  A wheelie vs most lights is in favor of wheelie (bar the two tier 10 soviet lights who just stealth you into oblivion, yes, the LT432 is just a tier 10 at tier 8)

 

EBR105 toons when, you nerd?

yes to balancing tanks for both sides...ie 3 LTs on both sides...makeup should be equal wheelie v tracks. example,3 LTs. 2 wheelie 1 tracks for both sides.what SHOULDNT happen,3 wheelies on one side,3 tracks on the other.

tonight hopefully, also yes, they neeed to be balanced equally, like arty, the force of vision projection, as well as it's speed need to be countered. The only LT that I fear is the memeidan, maybe the T100, I literally cannot hit those tanks.

 

Imagine a grown man giggling for minutes on end, followed by a OH crapas I hit a rock behind a bush.

Glad you like them not my cup of tea.I tried the X and the reload time is so long I got up and fixed myself a cup of coffee.I guess I just preffer meduims and regular ole French LTS with heavy mixed in I don't have the skillset.I don't begrudge anyone for doing well in them and don't care one way or another if there nerfed they don't bother me that much.

Similar, but I usually end up insulting the poor peasant LTs that don't have wheels. Or the other team when MM thinks an EBR 90 is equivalent to me

I think we should limit TDs and Heavies to three per side. Too many HP and too stealthy.

They just need bigger maps. Bigger maps and more obstructing terrain. It's bad when you're on Mines, on domination mode, and your Borsig gets spotted struggling up the hill three seconds into the match. 

 

Wheels themselves? It's hard to say. Leading and hitting them is both satisfying and frustrating at the same time. You shoot a Lynx with a Borsig and it low, low rolls or even worse it gets magicked away by the humongous wheels, or you shoot the Lynx in that sliver of tank above the wheels and kill a couple crewman automatically. 

 

With HE rounds getting a nerf soon, I can't say there's a definitive way to scale back Wheelies without making them gimped. Just make the maps bigger and add more obstructions.

This is exactly my experience of listening to Tsavo while we play and he's in a wheelie.

i think the best is when i shotgun the little go kart, man the messages i get afterwards are great, yep i play arty and there is nothing more satisfying then one to the mouth of a go kart driver, makes me all warm and fuzzy. sure i get killed byt them but on an average of 15 games of spg play, im guaranteed to shotgun at least 3 sometimes up to 5. so enjoy it its a new past time for me

I don't like them. They're way too fast and basically made passive scouting something you cannot do in a regular light tank anymore.

I take great pleasure is destroying these klown kars with HE. Almost as much as arty.

When I see a dunebuggy show up I just turn my medium around and go hide in a bush or behind a building somewhere.  I was hoping that getting out of Tier 4 meant I wouldn't be seeing the Luchs anymore, but someone at WG loves playing their Luchs I guess and wanted one with invincible tracks.

Have you tried shooting HE at them? or just, go to a different flank and help roll that one?

Usually the wheelie is somewhere else before the reload has finished.  And I'm not falling for grinding a new line, last time I did that the whole thing was powercreeped to irrelevancy.  Nice try WG.

everyone says to shoot HE at them.ok i dont have HE loaded in whatever tank i am in at the time...so i reload HE...if its a long reload,good luck getting loaded before they get away.if you are preloaded and miss...long reload...they get away....if you GET them and reload...long reload puts you at risk of other enemies.

 

and good luck shooting and leading your shots at a distance.up closer may not be a problem,but at a distance it is....especially when there are terrain variances that will affect where that wheelie is when your shell gets there.

 

i find the only reliable method is to just ram them if you are able.

Um, Heavies are supposed to have more HP. That's their super hero power.

Why did you put "umm" at the beginning of your sentence?
