So how long should I wait before yoloing the enemy base from the start of the game? 20 seconds? 10? Should I even wait and just go straight in!?

Turkey Is Right You Know. We All Play Different Tiers Across The Board. I Play Pretty Much Nothing But, Light Tanks Tiers 5s All The Way To 10. So, If That Gives Any Idea And, Just Play What Tanks You're Most Comfortable In. I Believe I've Only Ran Into Turkey Once. Even When The Pressure Is High Just Don't Let Get To You. I Always Listen To Music When I Play Tanks So, It's Kinda My Secret Power To My Success On The Battlefield.

Great guide. This post inspired me to get back into my American lights. I had a good game, thanks to teammates that actually sat back and just picked off the targets as I lit them up. I don't think I'll get a better "Assisted" score ever again. Been on quite the losing streak so this was a nice change of pace.

Good advice!

I love scouts....but I've made the switch to fast mediums and play those a bit more.

I play them all in the same manner. Active scout/flanker/anti-scout/arty-killer.  

 

Saving hit points for later is CRUCIAL, because at some point late in the game, you are going to have to eat a shot to get in close for a circle kill. 

 

That is also one of the reasons why the 3rd or 4th skill I train (after 6thS, Camo, and BIA) is repairs.  If I can avoid using my toolkit early on track damage, it can save my bacon later. 

 

Side note:  I usually prefer fast mediums over lights because of the silent driving perk.  Given all the perks and skills available, along with the mechanics of the game, it is easier to play a fast medium like a scout, then a scout like a fast medium.   The mediums usually have more hit points, more armor, and bigger guns...and can ram most scouts.  

 

I think it is unfair that silent driving is useless for lights, but gives a 50% reduction in moving visibility for other tanks.  There are very few skills or perks that offer a 50% bump on anything.

Thank you for everything you do for this community.

I could read your guides and watch your videos but I'm still a below average LT player.

But at least that's up from a tomato light player lol

 

See you out there and hopefully on the greens.

 

 


 

Bring back the old chaffee!

This was a good guide.  Wish I had seen it before I jumped into my Lycan.  I was never a fan of light tanks and it just sat in my garage for 6 months.  Took it out for a spin, struggled at first.  I watched a few videos and jumped back in. Kind of learned on my own what works and what doesn't.  The videos always seem to be an ideal situation, you will never run into an exact scenario.  Always have a backup plan for each map.  One of the most fun tanks I've played. It has been one of my go to's for this Motherland Op.

 

A few things I've learned over the past few months playing:

  - Be aggressive, but not aggressive.  No your situation and don't expect help from your teammates.

  - Always be ready with a full clip on an autoloader.  Didn't find out until a few months ago, pressing right on the D-Pad will reload even if you have a few shells left.  I was always running around with one shell left, trying to find something to put it into.

  - Stay alive.  I don't YOLO on purpose.  Sometimes I get into a bad spot, like the encounter on Ghost Town earlier.  You'll be a tremendous help in the end with spotting and distracting.

  - You don't always need to spot.  I feel it depends on the map and the mode.  Some maps are easier for spotting than others.  The higher tiers have better view range.  I let them get some spots, make sure I'm safe, then I'll creep in to try and spot the others.  Sounds selfish, but my dead tank won't be a good tank for anyone later on.

  -  Assist, assist, assist.  If you can't pen them from your angle, track them and hopefully the rest of your team can capitalize.
