as Quackbaby the hated said:

"most player don't even carry any normal shell, all premium rounds"

 

that is how people get the most usage out of Manticore's tiny ammo rack

With the low shell count you have to make every shot count. Otherwise you might as well as sell the tank, since the shell count kills it.

because people don't run full premium in other tier 10s?  

 

FV 4005/183 HESH memes anyone?

Just give it some time. They might buff the ammo count to 22 and nerf it hp

The obvious difference is that with the 4005 you can still be competitive without the gold spam. People choose to run full prem in that tank because they want to not because they have to...

Patch notes regarding patch (some future patch number) :

 

We've heard your feedback regarding British light tanks and adjusted their parameters in the following ways:

 

Ammunition load out changed to 10

Gun aim time increased to 7 seconds

Reload increased to 17 seconds

Alpha damage reduced to 175

View range increased to 381

Crew rebalance, all roles transferred away from commander

Penetration rebalanced to 75/85/25

 

That'll learn ya to not appreciate what we give you - SerB

 

Calling it now, this is how the lights will be "rebalanced"

Hate to be the one to break this to you but, players don't need the convenient excuse of having a low maximum ammo count to load full gold loadouts.

The line is quite good.  Most people commenting on them have never once played them.  The hyperventilating early videos were before any of the content creators even gave them a chance.  I'm having no trouble with them, they preform as well or better than any of my other tier 7-9 scouts.  I'll reserve judgment on the Manticore for when I get it, though I think Tru has the definitive, non hyperventilating, video out on it right now.

 

My Setter review is out and I'll have the tier 8 and 9 out soon.

 

Cheers,

 

Guido

The only tank I ran full Gold was the T54 before the gun buffs, but it was only twice

It's OK guys, Wargaming developers said the British Light Tanks are overpowered.  Clearly, working as intended.

I'm being satisfied with the Setter so far.  It plays as well as my limited skillz are going to allow.

 

Doubt I'll ever see the Manti due to that sudden paradigm-shift-without-a-clutch "two crew members" deal.

 

But if the line continues as well as it has been, I can seek keeping the Tier IX flavor.

Not having a gunner does it for me regardless of how bad everything else is and not going to bother with the line at all until there is some buffs.

 310 pen on it's standard AP round.

 

183 doesn't need gold rounds, they're just more fun...
