Poll: Wheelies (61 members have cast votes)

You have to complete 100 battle in order to participate this poll.

This being a tank game (tank is a tracked armored vehicle), the introduction of wheeled vehicles makes things very difficult. Should they be removed from game or nerf auto aim and or make slow them down?

  1. Nerf speed (0 votes [0.00%])

    Percentage of vote: 0.00%

  2. Nerf ability to resist tracking. (14 votes [22.95%] - View)

    Percentage of vote: 22.95%

  3. nerf speed (1 vote [1.64%] - View)

    Percentage of vote: 1.64%

  4. All of the above (22 votes [36.07%] - View)

    Percentage of vote: 36.07%

  5. Remove wheeled vehicles (24 votes [39.34%] - View)

    Percentage of vote: 39.34%

I understand that this is a game and wheelies are just another type of vehicle. Some people enjoy the wheelies and do very well. You cant please everyone. You dont have to make them so OP that players say to heck with this battle. and leave.

I have been entertaining a thought. In tiers 9 and 10, when ebrs are on the opposing team I always think, "screw this battle" and want to leave. I will look for a lake or a cliff, so the ebr wont get any exp from me. Imagine if a lot of people did this? I am not saying I do it all the time, but I am sure getting close to it. Oh well

As annoying and toxic as EBR's can be, people who drown or exit battle just because they see one on the enemy team are 10x more toxic than that EBR.

 

Remember this next time you're looking for that cliff...you're choosing to be far more toxic to your team just because that EBR is on the enemy team.  Not cool bud.

They should make ebr accuracy like the polish tier 10 when it’s in the speed mode. Therefore it will be very difficult for it to deal damage and it will have to go very close making it easier to kill.

Make wheels part of the hitbox and remove super auto aim. Boom, balanced

100% this.

 

If you are going to act like a child and kill your tank then why bother hitting the battle button.

 

If the OP keeps doing it then I hope they get reported and sanctioned.

Since wheelies get progressively more annoying as you go to progressively higher tiers, I have discovered that it is less annoying to just play the middle tiers, which also means I can get by with giving WG a WHOLE LOT less money.

When WG makes it less fun at certain tiers, I play those tiers less. It's not complicated.

Imagine thinking wheeled vehicles are the problem, rather than admitting all tier 8+ light tanks are underpowered

They should mount spare tires on the turret sides so they become unstoppable.

While a couple EBR's on an opposing team with good players can make for an unpleasant game letting your teammates down is not fair to them. And wheeled vehicles being bullet proof certainly doesn't help matters,

dialing EBR's back some would make for a more enjoyable game. 

Maybe some unicums could share some tactics to counter these clown cars.

As others have posted, I focus on middle tiers to keep wheelie influence down.

Their mechanics are objectively ridiculous.

My son left WOT because of them.

But with some tweaks to hitboxes, speed, handling off-road, and gunnery, they could be made to work.

Regards, DarkDaddy

While I agree with this sentiment and do not condone jumping off a cliff, I do think it's funny that you're worried about letting your teammates down when 90% of the time 12-13 of them per battle will let you down just by showing up.

If you want to make a poll, try not to slant it to get the answer you want. Are Roach Coaches bad? Yes, the way they are currently configured they are not evenly balanced for game play. I haven't spent much time playing them,  but others have and it's not fair for them if they get arbitrarily discarded.

 

At least consider thing a little objectively.

You just have to play ranked to see how dominant they are, even in the hands of below average players i have seen ebrs take multiple hits in a row without taking damage all while going full speed and getting spotting assistance. Wargaming introduced these vehicles to make them arty killers with their ridiculous speed and stupid high HE penetration but they broke their whole game in the process too. Whats funny is that wargaming hires people to balance their game....i wonder what they do all day to be honest.

Look at the ebrs wr compared to other tier 10s and even tier 10 lights ;)

I would be fine with them existing if their guns simply had crap stats and did crap damage like the lower tiered ones. Not like the 400 alpha HE strikes I've heard the top cars can do...

 

(Not to mention Wg bending the rules of not nerfing premiums to absolutely wreck T8 matchmaking. That thing was a mistake since day 1)

Yeah, except drowning or cliff diving to exit a match because you don't like it is a sanctionable offense and can eventually get your account perma banned. Ebr are part of the game. Get used to them or find another game.

 

Just my opinion.

MOE requirments are higher than other tier 10 lights that means most do well in it. Its just plain broken.

Maybe because the guns of the other tier 10 lights aren't good enough compared to mediums. WR is better to judge a tanks carrying capability then MOE values.
