  1. So the rumors are confirmed. WG is implementing wheeled vehicles into the game. I, as an excessive light player am pretty happy about this so far (also because french) but it seems to come with some caviats. Just watched quickies video from Gamescom were he answers some questions from some develloper and it seems, while having very good mobility, the new lights will have bad view range and even worse guns than regular lights to push them in an "active scouting role". Not too happy about that tbh because recent map changes and the trend to tunnel maps pretty much takes away all room for active scouting. Also we dont know anything about camo values (will they keep camo on the move just as regular lights?) All this is obviously subject to change and when WG says, they want to release them early next year im hoping for summer if it doesnt get scrapped beforehand. Thoughts? Ideas? Guncars you want to see? Does the game benefit from dedicated active scouts? how to 'track' them? Do noobs have to go to driving school to learn 3 point turning? Is Murazor still getting semen via IV because he cant suck all the Ds at once?
  2. So WG is potentially removing the +1 penalty for "scout" light tanks. Hooray? NOPE. I predict it will be a nerf because these tanks will all get uptiered. So this means: Can't be competitive with large light tank contingents for strongholds, as for example the T54L and T37 will be tier 9 and tier 7 respectfully Tougher XP grind for lights as you no longer get added the +1 level XP difference for spotting / damage /kills. Lower potential discount as the higher tier tanks tend to less discounts Possibly higher repair costs? Not sure on this one. We're also not sure where they introduce a new light tank to fill in lower gap but I bet I will be at tier IV.
  3. Hello everyone! I'm currently looking for an experienced player that excels at scouts/light tanks and is willing to help me improve. I've watched a bunch of videos and streams, which has helped me improve quite a bit, but I'm more of a hands on learner where I can pose questions and receive direct feedback on my actions. I'd prefer to run the Chaffee, T37, Bulldog, or T49. I'm available in the afternoons EST and anytime on the weekends. I'm really excited to start working with someone and improving. Lately my games have either gone really well (partly due to luck I'm sure) or I've died within 2 minutes (and I'm not suic-scouting). Sometimes I last till the end, but don't do any real damage. This has often lead to "worthless scout" and other far worse messages from my teammates. When I contact them afterwards they almost never provide any real feedback as to what I could've done better. I feel like I hurt my team more then help and this drives me crazy. Anyway, it's all part of my drive to get better, so here I am; ready, able, and willing to learn. Thanks, Mike
  4. I'm looking for someone who has somewhat understanding of how to get better at this game and can help me out (So I would assume a Blue+ player). I feel like i'm not progressing and getting better at the rate I would like to be going and I make mistakes that cost me my life(In-game of course). I'm currently learning to play Mediums, Lights, and Heavies but I like the play of mediums and lights a bit more than heavies so If you specialize in those that would be great. I think I could also use more specific knowledge of map hot spots. I would like to improve in knowing what to do in situations so that I will be able to get out of possible situations that might get me killed because I wouldn't know what I should do. I would also like to get better at knowing the line i'm playing and what I should and shouldn't do in the tank i'm playing. I'm not expecting a huge commitment, just people who are willing to play a few games here and there to point out some good ideas/areas/tactics as well as some flaws/areas of improvement in my game, I have TS, do not have a rage problem, or an ego, and I can take all the criticism you throw at me (as long as it is for the purpose of helping me). Just to let you know just what i'm playing I have the Tier 8 heavy IS-3, the Tier 8 medium T-44, and the Tier 7 light Amx 13-75. I Don't really like playing TD's or Arty's that much so I wouldn't need mentoring for those. If you are interested in helping me out then I play on the NA server generally starting whenever I wake up so around 10 AM up until 2-4 AM (no not typo AM) sometimes earlier, eastern standard time. Thank you for reading, if you don't mentor but know someone who does could you please send them here
  5. So, since yesterday 9.7 is up. I've started grinding the last US med line and am currently grinding the T20 (which is awesome btw ). Did a few battles and noticed there is like hardly any arty in the game anymore (5 battles played, 1 arty ...). Other members from my clan noticed the same thing (although we were not platooning). And it stayed like that all night. Then we started noticing the queue itself. 30-50 meds and heavies in queue while there were consistantly 300-400 arties and lights in queue. Not being anti-light we hadn't even noticed the number of lights per battle, so we decided to check. And sure enough, 1-2 lights per battle. A guy playing his bulldog complained MM took at least 1 min to get into a battle. So was yesterday a fluke? Or did they change the MM, where I just missed the info? Anyone else notice the lack of arties (hurray!! ) Is it the same on the US servers? Thx,
  6. I am trying to make a compilation of spots from where you can get early damage without taking any damage on all maps for fast mediums. Abbey: E2 and G2 sniping across the middle of the town(E5 and G5) If you have friendly lights and meds in middle spotting. Its 90% guaranteed to get a free shot from this place. But you need to retreat if you sniff anything coming from 2 line. Airfield: E5 and E7 or F5 and F6 looking into the middle E6. 50% chance of getting a free shot. Arctic Region: I think this can be difficult for free shot from both sides. From south spawn F4/F5/G7/E4. From north spawn run directly C3 and climb the small hill (you might get clicked here be careful) based up on opp team mobility strength or stop at B5 for your luck to work and get a free shot. Cliff: North Side: Straight away run to E5 or E6 and get side shots on tanks climbing up. South Side: Either go to F6 to get some side shots or if you are fast enough there is spot on Hill on G2 corner. where you can get free damage from there shooting at tanks at E5 E6. best thing about the spot is lot of cover and arty safe (damn CGC can still get you though). Very rewarding location if you play it a bit safe. El Halluf: South spawn C2 North spawn B3. you can only get 1 or max 2 cross fire shots from this locations. not arty safe. and no hull down no free shots Ensk: Erlenberg: This can be so rewarding if your whole team decides to push one flank. North side: Run to E2 get side shots on tanks spotted at J3 and J4 South side: Run to E9 or E0 get first shots on tanks pushing your side Fiery Salient: This has many ways to get free shots. North side: Either run to E9(you need to be fast to get this place. high risk if some smarty pants light tries to spot you from the mid) get side shots at tanks crossing J7/8. or poke from E5 to look at E2/H2 to get one or 2 shots in the start(you need to find the micro ridge to poke properly. Anyway very less chance of getting free damage here) South side: either go to F5 like everyone to test your luck or if you have lot lights spotting mid you can got to H1/G1 are and snipe tanks at E5/E6. even unicums cant escape if you snipe from here. Fishermans Bay: I like north side for first shots. but south side for long term free damage. North side: Run to E7 there is good solid cover building you can hide. Sidescrape or poke if you have good camo and spot all tanks crossing at H7/8 J7/8. High risk high reward place. South side: Run to F6 hide behind the solid cover building and snipe towards heavies settling at E8. Fjords: West side - E5 for free ass shots on heavies going to the peninsula or camp at C5 to get some free shots at dumb tanks spotted at D7/E7 East side - A/B8 to shoot the TDs parked at C/D5-6 or camp at E7 hide behind the rock when ever you see a tank going towards C/D/E4 lines pop out get some free side shots. I dont know if its worth making this compilation or not, cause I am myself an avg player. I wanted to search this kind of guide but cant find any So I am making myself one and for newbies out there. If I get any inputs from better players for particular maps I will continue making the same for remaining maps. Edit: Im gonna finish of this guide with all the maps Thanks Rahin
  7. Hi, I'm not a great light tank driver, but I think it is time I started driving these tanks more to optimize my map knowledge. Because at the moment I know it is seriously lacking. In order to get a little more structured feedback I've decided to take some print screens of the minimaps (just taken off the internet, don't look at the quality) and indicated where I go in my lights when the counter hits 0. The lines indicate only the initial locations where I go to, and depending on the deployment of the enemies I relocate or not. To keep it simple, I only indicate where I go, not where I want to spot or what I would like to do (active/passive). I also assume that the team setups allow me to go there in the first place, so it is not taken into account in these print screens. I'm assuming I'm a tier 6-7-8 scout in a high tier battle. Now I know that on plenty of maps I go to the wrong initial location, severely limiting my role in the game, just because I started of wrong in the first place. I get trapped or killed and so can't do much for my team. Could you guys go over the print screens and give me some pointers? Things I do wrong? Better locations to go to? If possible, could you do it in a format: Map Go to ... your position wrong because of ... Anyway, I hope we can have a collection here map locations for light tanks which can consolidate a lot of information from all the great players here.
