I tried to give this update a fair chance; I really did. And to be fair, there are some things I love about 4.2, like the fact that the Awesome Panther is now the best tier VII medium, but as a whole I really wish this update didn't happen right now. The game is basically unplayable, as every high tier game has about a third to half of both teams as light tanks, and of course this means it's impossible to actually play anything without being constantly spotted. And the worst thing about this is that scouting is basically impossible now, as is proven by the fact that in over 40 games I still haven't even earned the 25k spotting damage need for one of the ops. These aren't really light tanks, they're just fast tier IX mediums, and as such you just cannot move forward without being yolo'd to death by half the enemy team. These lights and mediums are forming non-stop wolf packs and just charging forward to the point that even the sneakiest of TDs can't snipe, arty can't be safe for longer than a minute per game, and even the most OP TDs like the DeathStar just can't hold up to the massive wave of enemies hitting them.

 

On top of that I can't even go have fun in lower tier games as much anymore since the ELC was nerfed hard. Seriously, the game is almost completely unplayable because of this ridiculously high numbers of mediums and lights on each team, and even though I'm sure their numbers will decline over time light tanks as we knew them just aren't in the game anymore. World of Tanks is just World of Mediums now, and I'll take the slower, more methodical gameplay of the past over the blitzkrieg yolo rushing gameplay of today.

As I'm not a huge fan of TDs, I view this as a good thing.

 

Shame it won't last though.

What is it with people and the ELC? First game out in it this update I scored a Top Gun and topped the leaderboard. Y'all just forget to turn the old thinker on and figured you could club some Tier 3s blindfolded?

^ My awesome imaginary numbers. Because I'm too lazy to make one myself!

Good seeing you last night. That was quite the team you had last night- you, 2x 7F and two more uni's I can't remember. I was sad when I saw the Red team line-up :(

Why are there so many in play still? They have nothing to gain. LOL  All I am seeing is a crap ton of bad Lycan players. Fusion, bust out your waffle and mount up the derp and take out all the lights with one magazine. :D

Even nerfed, you could have possibly used a tank like the M7 for the spotting as there's likely to be less lights there and its easier to get spot assist when other tanks have lacklustre view range like most of the Heavies/TD's.

Buut of course they went and bugged the packages for it.


Garage : 

'Imagine if this forum had only players who actually win more than lose trying to tell others how to play. Would be the best forum ever. Instead, we have a bunch of morons who lose more often than not trying to tell their betters how to play their tanks.'

'The term "casual gamer" is actually not accurate enough anymore to describe what the larger market is like. They want the illusion of accomplishment, but not the effort associated with it. The players aren't really doing anything, something else is doing it for them, and the player takes the credit for it.

I'm not a fan of being pinned down for five minutes either, but at the same time I'd rather be pinned down for five minutes than not be able to stay alive for five minutes, especially when you can't move more than 20m from a teammate without the risk of being instantly rushed down and killed by multiple lights and mediums.

Also, and this might just be me, but has anyone else found that it's literally impossible to have a winning game? Seriously, the last five games I've played have been 15-3 or worse defeats or early caps on Encounter games, which means in my last five games I've done a grand total of 0 spotting damage. It also doesn't help that I just played a game in which I drove into a field and was instantly hit three times for all of my health, yet an enemy M41 went into the same field, drove circles there shooting my teammates for about three minutes, and had 4 kills without taking more than 200 damage in return.

Not really. Games have been decent... generally.
