I wouldn't mind light tanks if the maps had sufficient cover to enable passive spotting, as I'm too sausage-fingered to master that circle-of-death stuff, and everything and it's wife can spot me when I'm supposed to be the spotter. Tier X tanks can render upper tier lights irrelevant due to their view range as it is, so what benefits will tier X lights have to make me want to grind for one?

If they have the same stats as the PC versions then you honestly probably won't be that interested in the tier 10 lights as everything on console would destroy them with ease since console never nerfs tanks that need nerfed at high tier

Surprised to see tier X lights before year’s end. That was quite an awesome surprise!!!

 

A new War Stories looks cool featuring my favorite tank (Tiger I) with a female crew! Also, Another earn op to sink my teeth into too. 

 

Despite the hiccups earlier, the month seems to be coming together. Looking forward to Part Deux as well!

If these are the nerfed lights...mediums will still be the better choice. Looking forward to the rest of the update though.

Even so, the 122mm from the IS-2 should shred a Cromwell. But the gods of rng are unforgiving sometimes!

So with tier 10 lights confirmed release tomorrow I have a question.

 

If we have the T49, RU 251, T-54 Lightweight, AMX 13 90, M41 Bulldog, or T71 in our garage when the tier 10 lights go live, what will happen to them? I ask because every one of those gets bumped up a tier except the T71 which gets split into two different vehicles.

 

Additional tack on questions for two different light tanks.

 

AMX Chaffee has +4 matchmaking right now at tier 6 and I saw (while tankopedia had the changed) that it saw up to tier 9. Does this mean it will have scout matchmaking or some kind of hybrid matchmaking?

 

The Snakebite currently has preferential scout matchmaking (can't be top tier but only sees up to tier 8) and I noticed earlier on tankopedia that it still saw up to tier 8. Does it's matchmaking stay the same or does it go to standard matchmaking?

There will be changes in the tech tree to allow the new introduction of the new Tier X lights

 

I believe the first part of his question he is asking if we already have the old tier 8 lights unlocked will we get to keep them when they're moved up? and get their respective replacements? or do we just get the tier 8 replacement and have to unlock the "new" tier 9 lights again.

 

This is a question I too am dying to know.

You keep them, everything transfers with them and the replacement tanks will be researched along with any of the required packages to preserve the line.

 

AMX Chaffee will have 7-9 matchmaking. I'll need to check up on the Snakebite as I can't recall off the top of my head if it's MMING changed.

That's fair :great: also for the AMX Chaffee matchmaking.
