As the title says, news of additional light tanks has been seen and reported on by several PC WoT commentators. For the most part it seems that tier 8 light tanks are being buffed and moved up a tier, but I'm not sure what tanks they will be replacing the new gap with. With this also brings changes to their matchmaking for some of the high tier light tanks Just thought I would open up a thread for discussion and speculation on what new tanks will be brought in to fill in the new space and what people make of tier 9 and 10 light tanks.

Try nerfed, not buffed. T49 loses its 152mm derp gun, AMX 13 90 clip cut from 6 to 4 shots but quicker reload. Anyway, here's the url for the info you may be looking for  https://ritastatusre...0-tier-9-stats/

Of course, this is the PC version and they are, I believe, a completely separate entity to the console devs, which is one of the reasons we still have the WT auf E100 and pc don't, so I wouldn't be too worried about it for now or at least until we hear something about it from WG. That being said, I have a mate who has seen this info on the light tanks and he is so up in arms about the possibility of his T49 losing the 152mm gun launcher, that he has said he will uninstall the game and never play it again.

T49 loses the 152mm gun bit the tier 10 gets it. I don't know why everyone is so upset by it. 

I like the nerd on accuracy and smaller clip potential. These are lights, not slippery mediums.

I'm glad they lowered the clip on the 13 90. I was getting sick of people taking one hit to clip you out.

Worthless. These tanks will be absolutely worthless if they are implemented on console.

I have to agree and don't see what an Object 140 can't do, that these can.   High tier lights seem pointless to me. 

But, then again I don't play anymore so I don't care either way.

Ok, we'll, if the light tanks get these buffs and have a view range advantage, then I guess they are a little better than worthless--a little. That being said, I'm sure that tds on console will never receive get a view range, much less alpha nerf. We do it for the scrubs and they all lived happily ever after...

Buffed and moved up a tier? Most tier 8 light tanks that are being moved up a tier receive no penetration buffs and receive a gun handling nerf.

I know. The Sheridan will have the 152mm gun but it should have a little better accuracy(maybe .58-.56) and it should reload a little faster(T49 reloads the 152 at 22 seconds give or take with bia and vents so the Sheridan should reload in about 19 seconds with bia and vents) if they follow how guns work when installed on a tank one tier higher.

Another plus is the T49 gains 300 hit points and view range is buffed to 420m and it gets a proper 90mm that has AP/APCR rounds instead of just HEP and HEAT rounds so you don't have to spam premium rounds for effective results.

A 90mm with .40 dispersion.

I don't get lowering the DPM when moving a tank up a tier.  While I like the 420m view range, I wonder how much does a 420m view range help when mediums go over max view range with optics anyway. 


There are still some severe frustrations, but I still love to play.

If 0.4 is the case, the 0.4 and higher accuracy guns have a harder time hitting the weak spots in latest sandbox.  Edit: notice the link to stats shows the tier 9 T-54 ltwt and 132A get .403 accuracy.

There are still some severe frustrations, but I still love to play.

The lights will will have a great view range. Highest in game and as far as I know will still retain the scout camo. This means they will be scout tanks as they were intended. The stats shown were being tested and have been changed but as far as moving them up a tier, you realize that has no effect right? They are the exact same as they are right now.

Very few mediums go over max view range with optics. Max view range is 500m to burn through camo while light tanks keep their great camo and can get much more view range thanks to the 420m. The dpm isn't finalized and you realize moving light tanks up a tier but removing scout matchmaking means they see the same battles they currently do.
