I recently purchased the Leopard after having a seriously heated debate with one of my friends whose general impression of the tank is that it is a steaming hot pile of German shit. However, after playing about 20 (with a 70 xTe) games in it, I could not disagree more with him. I love it! I just want to know if the German light tank line gets even better and also why people hate that tank so much.
So I am just coming off of a run of 6 of 14 solo-pubbing run in the 2801 tonight. I am only maybe 40 games in and planning to get the indien/leopard etc. in the future. I watch my tazilion videos, read my forums, I got well above 50% in the vk1602, but lately the only games I have been winning are the ones where I get top 1-3 xp on my team and scout/patrol duty medals. Tier 9/10 matches are the norm and at that point mediums are better than the 2801 in every regard -guns, spotting range-speed/mobility (plus you are just as fat as most mediums). So while I love the fact that I get to keep my camo bonus while moving and can own on the few occasions that I get tier 7 battles, it has been pretty exasperating. I work to stay alive, keep baddies on the edge of my spot range or draw range while taking fire, but you can't carry at all, so if the team is down 4 tanks in the first 5 minutes, you're already done. So my question is, is anyone making this work lately? Is WG just looking to phase out light tanks altogether? http://tazilon2003.wordpress.com/ AM I just a glutton for punishment at this point?
