My comprehensive list of improvements I would like to see done to the light/scout tank class in World of Tanks
Hey Captain, I’m not seeing any video. The audio is fine, but there isnt any video
Thank you!!!! I agree with everything you said in this video 😀 I play almost only scouts (the wz’ sand the t71, Chaffee ect.) and things are SO unbalanced towards scout tanks Thank you for making this Let’s hope WG see this and take note!!!!
Its sounds like you want to make scout tanks “God Tanks”. Personally I think the only thing they need is slightly better match making.
I disagree with this. I think he just wants light tanks to be the best tanks in the game. Every idea that he says is just stupid. If you don’t like how the Light tanks are, just stop playing. These are just plain stupid ideas
Good Discussion could be a thought to try and separate the suicide lights from true scouting :- if you die in first 2 mins loose half your spotting Exp or something a kin
Cap check out Jingles latest mingles a tribute to Canadian troops in a roundabout Way
lol, i agree on the ” economy” they need to make more Credits and EP. for re-spotting ( dumb team mates and arty )
I’ve never thought about it but you make valid points about scout tanks. They tend to be the fastest, least armored and most under gunned of any other type of tank in the game. TDs have many of the same drawbacks while having many advantages denied scouts. I don’t play scouts anymore (when I play at all) but when I do, one of things that drives me nuts, is non-scout tank drivers giving scout drivers hell because they are SCOUTING! In other words scouts are damned for scouting and damned if they don’t scout the way non-scout drivers think they should. People forget that scouts are intended for gathering “intelligence”. In WoTs that means spotting….And scouts have to live to spot.
Out of all your ideas I think the best balanced are the last known position, better tracks, quicker sixth sense and further view range. Things like the engine boost and lighting grid squares would be to advantageous, especially for good players.
I’m not totally agreeing with you but something needs to be done about light tanks via some of the points you made. Thanks for Videos Capt :)
scouts need better penetration on the existing guns, better camo rating and better view range, thats all i have say about it. and i think that tier 7 scouts (like the AMX 13 75) should not get in tier X games.
Great ideas Capt. Scouting is a tough thing to learn. I don’t think that what your suggesting are huge buffs, but it would fix a lot of the unfair treatment that the scout class gets.
Fuck scouting man, only a few take advantage of scouting anyway. Most don’t give a fuck if you scout the whole enemy team 100 times, they will stick to their standard tactics and laugh at you when you die.
Scouting is something of the past, when light tanks didn’t have the firepower to bring down a medium tank by themselves. It was the only thing they could do, but now things have changed a lot.
My advice: Pick up a light tank with big damage and actively support your team by annoying the fuck out of the enemy. AMX 13/75, AMX 13/90, T71 and these chinse ones have very very nice dpm and mobility.
You can be a massive asset to the team if you jump behind an enemy, take more than half his HP away and run away before he even realises what happened. Even if you only just draw his attention, your team will jump him and kill him.
The damage these things can do is much more usefull than scouting. When i see one or two of these behind me i know i’m fucked.
Sorry but being a scout is a thankless task, td’s have just been nerved regarding bushes.So why should scouts get such big buffs! you like to scout others don’t
I think wot should sort out the god aweful match making! i am fed up to the back teeth being dumped into a team of noobs with no chance of winning. I’am not talking about one or two games the last twelve days nothing but p–s poor mm not one game over 44% chance. It’s starting to make me hate this game. roll on war thunder!
i would like light tanks to have a bit more penetration so u can actually do something against the front of an IS 3 with a WZ 132 without gold for instance, just like 10 penetration more
i totally agree with you, i got WZ-132 and its really stupid when i spot whole enemy team and make some dmg and only few XP for 1st. winning battle of the day…
Can understand your anger with scout tanks being so underpowered capt. I’m grinding through the chinese line atm and I’m gonna go down the medium tank line just because of the fact that scout tanks are just to weak compared to the opposition.
I think they (Wargaming) will introduce more high tier tanks and perhaps reduce the MM spread for the existing “Scout” tanks (to match all the other tanks +2 Tiers instead of +4)
Also I wish they would give Scout tanks there only line and not be part of other branches…really frustrating for new players who get thrust into a scout tank without any warning!
Light tanks have good cammo and even if they move the value remain 100%. And the tracks can be upgraded with some enchanted torsion bars.
economy and matchmaker, after all some light tanks are overpowered and get completelly nerfed fighting 4 tiers higer and with a 500% lose of credits
I don’t agree with the “overboost/nitro” idea, that would just make some tanks nightmares to face. Especially if it came down to a 1v1 or 2v2 situation at the end of the game, TDs or tanks with slow turret traverse would just be hopelessly screwed.
Something I think is practical and would help: If two tanks, say a light tank and a heavy tank, are spotting the same target and that target takes damage, the game should automatically defer the spotting credit to the light tank rather than the heavy. It’s not exactly fair, but it gives the light tank incentive to stay out and spot while the heavy does the peek-a-boo shuffle.
I do agree they need more view range, in the form of a nerf to other tanks. Every tank should take a 10-15meter view range hit from where they currently are, while every light tank should get +10/15 more meters.
