13 57 has shit for HP/T, its not even a contest on who is the slowest tier 7 LT when you got this in the ring.
not to mention 57mm caliber is just horrid, many of you will probably notice that you bounce a lot more usual int he 13 57 than say 131, well, turns out, having only 57mm that can't overmatch 20mm of side/rear/engine deck will cause a shit load of unintended ricochets that otherwise wouldn't happen.

I sold the 59-16. I was never particularly enamored with it and largely kept it around because the autoloader was quite useful for tier 6 tournaments. Sans that, no reason for me. I still have a T37 because I don't want to sell a triple-marked vehicle, but I haven't driven it because blech. May keep the T49 and shift the crew to that after the female T49 crew goes to the Sheridan.
LTTB got an extra 2 degrees of depression so now LTTB fights aren't just endlessly skipping shells off the other guy's engine deck.

I've barely played since the patch, so this will be useful to me since my garage and your garage usually end up about the same (apart from all your p2w tanks). Just going off stats for the mid tier lights, the ones that seem pretty interesting to me:
VK 1602 Leopard - This was actually pretty fun before but the 3cm gun really fell off against tier 8s in particular. Now it will be far more effective and it is a really fun gun to use. My only concern is the turning got nerfed pretty hard so it won't feel as nimble. I have hopes that this can be my VK2801 replacement for mindless giggles.
AMX 12t - Pre-patch, this tank was below average due to bad gun handling and being overall sluggish. Both of those aspects have received huge buffs. Not good enough? Now you can mount a VStab and you get an extra 2° gun depression. You do pay for it with your burst with only 4x135 and 2.5 seconds between them. But I feel like this could be a pretty solid trade off. Also having 144/202 pen at this tier is sweet.
AMX 13 75 - This tank wasn't bad pre-patch, but now it's effectively a tier lower with massive mobility and gun handling buffs. Uh....yes please? My only concern is that your total burst is low with 4x135, but you also get a clip reload of just over 12 seconds which makes it a highly flexible autoloader.
I haven't looked into it much further at this point. I might actually play a bit this weekend so I'll try a few of these out.

Batchat 12t is kinda fun but the 1375 makes it irrelevant as it's the same tank a tier lower. Cant have too many autoloaders tho
LTG is a tier7 med on steroids. I'd keep it in your garage just to remind you that inbreeding is bad.

Tier X LTs are here, this means we need to change some things around. Since building a good garage is part of enjoying the game, and managing crews is part of being successful at the most important task of being good at pub battles, here are my shuffles post 9.18
Tier 5: All these LTs are kinda bad now. The ELC is amusing still, the M7 is probably going to get sold. I will hold onto the Chaffee for nostalgia reasons, for now. 0.44 accuracy obviously gives me mixed feelings but the HP nerfs really hurt this tier of LTs.
Keepers: ELC AMX
Tier 6: One of my favorite LT tiers has been homogenized into oblivion, I blame @dualmaster333. Sold the VK2801, as yet another 7.5cm/75mm gun is not interesting. I have a Type 64. T37 crushed similarly to the Chaffee in the accuracy department. Its already not fast. Its slower, lower pen, less accurate, not a premium. It does hold more ammo, but thats not enough! Bye beloved T37. Thats two 3 marked tier 6s I really enjoyed that I'm selling. 59-16 is still there, because I'm keeping 1 non premium LT for the tier, and its crew is easily improved in the Types 62 and 64. Best camo and mobility in tier, and good enough accuracy.
Keepers: 59-16, Type 64
Tier 7: We should all know by now the premiums are quite good in this tier, which is a nice about-face since they were trash for so very very very long. T71 is clearly a winner, as it basically only got a minor pen nerf, and moved down a tier.
Keepers: AMX 13 57, Type 62, T71
Tier 8: I haven't played all the LTs in this tier, specifically the Bat12. It seems decent from skill4ltu's stream and @SchnitzelTruck's testimony. The LTTB is amazing though, and I really enjoy the WZ-132 in its current tier. M4190 is solid of course. I put a lady crew destined for the RhmPz into the Hwk12, to train up some skills and finish unlocking the PTA. This will net them likely 4 skills before dropping into the tier X.
Keepers: M41 90, LTTB, WZ-132 without crew for now
Tier 9: I like all these tanks, but I like the RU251 the least. Its wonky depression, middling dpm and poor turning make the T49 90 better in every important way. And the T49 doubles as a derpwagon, so we all know USA > Germany. The 54LW with its new crazy engine and super low bloom has really grown on me, so I am conflicted about keeping it. It has a decent crew from grinding out the T-100LT. 1390 is prob the best LT at tier 9 and I'm still deciding about the WZ-132A..
Selling: RU251 ASAP
Keeping: AMX13 90, T49
Tier 10: First up to purchase is the RhmPz, the tank I consider to be the worst of the tier X LTs. Why asks @lordawesome7? Because I want to prove myself wrong, although early data from dpgwhores is showing the Sheridan to have better damage output. Winrates likely similar though. T-100LT is the only one I'm super excited about though.

Most of the softstats copied from TAP-senpai~
These beauties will sadly be Asia-exclusives but considering they lack the exposed boobs of the O-No line they are clearly inferior Anime tanks anyway.

It's definitely more comfortable, but I wouldn't consider either of those keepers.
I haven't found the minus -9 as useful as I thought. The long aimtime, soft turret and reload time don't make for an effective hill poker.
The +11 on the other hand is a godsend.
Monkey reacted to Sapros in Which in-game premium should one buy when trading in?
112's turret is worse than you might expect. In close quarters those hatches are very easy to hit and pen.
250mm premium pen.'s a nice upgrade over the IS-6 but HEAT is shit and will occasionally screw you over. Also the lower dpm is really noticeable.
The tank shines when using rations and maxing out viewrange. Personally, I woundn't sell an IS-6 for 50% its cost to get a 112.
