I am so sick of WG being out of touch with the player-base. With the introduction of wheeled tanks, I noticed that balance within the light tank class no longer seems to be a concern for WG. They vomited these tanks onto us without considering how under-powered they were and how useless they could be on a map like Prok for example.

 

Driving 70 - 95 kph is not enough. Zipping in and out of enemy lines without receiving a shot of damage is not enough. Out spotting light tanks that have more view range is not enough. Godlike autoaim and accuracy while firing on the move is not enough! Having damn near impenetrable wheels is not enough!!!! Being the only tank class that can repair its mobility while on the move is NOT ENOUGH!!!!!! HAVING INSANE CAMO RATING IS NOT EEENNOOUUGGGHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Since WG has obviously failed and has introduced such a weak tank line, I have taken initiative and have come up with suggestions that will make the EBR actually competitive and relevant in the game.

 

1 - Jet Packs. We need extra boosts on wheelies. The speed is just too slow. If we had this ability, we could boost ourselves up to positions that no one can access. This will aid in survival.

 

2 - Wings. I can't tell you the number of times that I have gone behind enemy lines for at least 12k spotting but cannot get out. I need wings on the side so that if I find myself in a situation that looks dire, I can take off at 30kph and fly to safety. Or I can simply fly to the next battle because que times are too long. This is needed.

 

3 - 40% camo rating is a joke. I need at least 90%. Lets be realistic here. A tank could never see something driving that fast IRL.

 

4 - Another set of wheels on top of current wheels creating a 360 degree wheel barrier. The more wheels the better. BEST ARMOR WoT! If you flip over you can continue to drive

 

5 - Mobile wheeled artillery.  I'm tired of having to sit in the back and use my superior intellect to click on fools camping. I need a wheeled arty so I can zip around and drop warheads on foreheads. Getting killed in arty at the end of the game is not fair. I need to be able to get away if needed. I fought bravely all battle. I deserve it.

 

6 - We need ebr's that can be loaded into artillery pieces and fired across the map to be even further behind enemy lines. Or even dropped on top of tanks and the wheels can be used to spin their HP away.

 

7 - A triple barreled ebr60TP is needed. The regular 60TP is too slow. The gun (x3) should be removed from the 60TP and mounted on an ebr. The current ebr size in game is fine. Just attach the guns to the front. This will aid in giving the alpha ebr's deserve.

 

8 - Snorkel kits

 

9 - Spikes attached to the side of the wheels would also be beneficial. I need to be able to zip super close to my opponent grind their HP away. Only being able to do circles around them is for the birds and is so 2019

 

10 - Nukes.

 

Please take these small improvements in consideration WG. Wheelies are so under-powered and irrelevant as it is that something NEEEEEEEEDS to be done.

 

Thank you.

 

 

**Update** I meant to put triple barrel on #7. So foolish of me to forget this suggestion because why not.

Personally, I agree with EVERYTHING you just said.  It's amazing that more players aren't saying the same thing? Guess baddies will just be bad.

Auto aim needs to be upgraded to auto engage.

I fully agree!  Especially the Wheelie artillery.  It should have the same autoaim and so can travel at 100 mph and still have deadly accurate arty fire.

Must have a game stopping  song that everyone has to watch every time they unite like "Here  here is the French Crusty!!!!" That plays for a good minute 32 seconds each time they unite.

Snorkel kits?  Be serious.  Complete underwater CO2 scrubber/oxygen tank kits.  It'll open up that Lakeville map a treat when they come ashore unexpectedly, especially when considering my next suggestion.

 

In addition, their camo should include extending to  their game icon, so that they appear to be another light or maybe a low-tier medium.

Why stop at that? I think if it had the 279e armour it would balance it out.

I agree with all of the above but you guys are forgetting the most important thing of all:

 

NUKES, they need tactical NUKES !

 

PS: also add an oven to make the baguettes !

I agree with this, we need a kill streak tactical nuke and we also need a new artillery type. We need mustard gas shells that can be shot from any Arty as well as any wheeled. The mustard gas will do AOE damage over time and only wheeled tanks are immune to this. We also need geneva sections for war criminals like panther m10 or that multinational t34-85m. Also, we need to improve the wheeled design so it is a big wheel. That way it will stop shells and only if a shell hits the hole in the middle the tank will slow down 1km and lose 100hp but no problem since the new rations restore HP
