So ive never been one to complain that lights are OP but ive been suicide run 8 games in a row where a light tank will look at me, auto lock me and hound me to death and be immediately killed after killing me because he decided to kill me in front of my entire team. This game is actually unplayable right now, they act like overly aggressive bots, it makes no sense. Am i the only person having this problem right now? I know there is an Op for a light tank but holy smokes. War gaming do something because im done until the suicide lights are toned down, and judging from the forums i'm not the only one.

Whats happening to this game :(

From what I can gather, it seems that those Mercenary Ops have players being madder than March hares.

Yolo wagons are out in force.

They should have named the tusk the plague instead then the plague op would be appropriate, stinger op is running as well.

Pretty funny and sadly true.  Either that or “The Law of Unintended Consequences” OP.  Terrible.

Those LT hordes are ruining the game. Even worse when they're platooned. I guess WG want us to take a break once the Earn Op is over. It's like they don't even play the game themselves and understand what their stupid missions do to the gameplay. :P

Agree, I play lights at times but man there's no form of organized gameplay, its like an arcade out there.  Hope WG limits the amount of lights, remember prior to the Tusk op, we had like 2 a game .... and occasionally a platoon of 3 , now its in every game ... 4 to 5 lights with 4 arty's

Eh, they're kinda fun to shoot at. Given I play solely russian tanks, auto locking means they hit my spaced armor and can't pen from the front, just the rear. Plus a majority of em suck at light tank confrontations like shooting when the tank they've auto locked onto is moving horizontally away from them and immedieatly running away when they shot all their rounds and  I just chase them until their dead. Light tank AMX drivers are utter trash. Those who use the sheridan and t49 are pretty good though from what I've seen. They don't yolo as much as the amx trash players.

But they improve the pace of the game when they end it instantly though right?

Sry but u also drove yesterday 15 games in a light tank. so please stop crying...

There are also a lot TD's in 1 game.

I think u be a victim of of the SHARPSHOTER merctank OP. Cause in stage 4 or 5 u need 3 times  "spot 3 enemys and kill 1"

When a merc OP needs only TD's u see lot of camping TD's in game and so on and so on...

 

Don't be worry. It will end like WG says SOON or in the near future :)

I played 5 games to finish my daily ops an hour ago and one game i watched a WZ-132-1 drive to my spawn on cliff and throw himself off the edge at G3.

Another memorable game watched a platoon of 2x AMX 13 90s yolo to my spawn on Swamp both attempting to clip out a M103, they died before the M103 was finished by arty.

 

I can say one thing, i'm glad the useless tools weren't on my team.


I don't play anymore, just loiter around the forum from time to time.

Same. was with my platoon last night and every game tier vii and above had at least 4-5 lights per team. And like a swarm of flies they either spend their time chasing other lights about or going for a TD or arty kill before they get vapouized!

It got so bad we stopped playing our slow TD's as you couldn't have a  game without being hounded. Not fun.

Started the last Stage 8 for 980K XP yesterday. My plan is to get about 25K XP per day... but... my god... it's that boring to play constantly 1-2 tanks every day. I think this Op could make me quit the game by boredom. :facepalm:

Even 25K XP are far too much to play in just 1-2 tanks every day. This gonna be excruciating. :(

 

@Op, does this answer your question?

Do you think it's fun for the mentioned lights?

It's WGC's fault to put such silly requirements in the current Ops. It would be funny if it wasn't that silly. :facepalm:

No one forces you to go for it, but yet you cry "its the Contract" i also saw Posts were people comitted to go yolo for these stupid Contracts. And don't even feel bad.

Its one Point they added them, its another to go and intentionally f**k everyone else by trying to fullfill this stuff. Tough the half of the tusk Guys will never Made it to the end but took part in screwing up the Game. Congratz the Community is proud in all of  you tusk dudes. 

"Oh sorry  i didnt wanted to shoot Somebody but they gave me the gun, so blame them"

Thats what you guys say.

I've lost too much time to just cancel it. Do you think that I would just throw this time in the bin? I'll finish it for sure. And - yeah. It's not my fault.

Why not when it gets job done? I did it for tusk op and gonna drop it after i get stage 7 done. It is doable but i don t want to stop my grinds for it so i settle for stage 7 prizes. 

I practically yolo my 5/4 daily to get my tracking assist done for scourge points. Top of that i mostly use HE for those games to shoot only tracks. Feel triggered yet? :trollface: 

Funny how people still take game so seriously... WG made ops & game balancing and i am going to play they way i get things done with least effort possible to continue my TT grinds.  


3-marks: Chaffee, PZ 5/4, VK 30.02 M, Cromwell knight, 34-88, T26E4, Churchill 3, T29, E75, conqueror, ELC, snakebite, T32  (13 tanks)

2-marks: lycan, amx chaffee, Brazilian bulldog, bulldog, T49, Ru 251, amx 13 90, WZ- 132A, Sheridan, T44, CDC, sta1, type59, M46, pta leo, t54, T1, bogatyr, kv2, hammer, is, tiger 2, löwe, kv4, m103, st1, T10, jagdpanther, e25, t28, t30,E8, gorynch (33 tanks)

Much wow, not mark hunter.

You proof my point mate, though you're not even one of the "i want that stupid Tank" kids i was ranting about.

i couldnt care less actually but this whining of these selfish yolo boon f**ktards about the silly Contracts and ops just hits the bottom out of the Barrel.

yeah and it doesent end there, these tusk and sharpshooter etc. contracts are not one time things, they open those up again in short time those have expired, this is never ending sycle with theese idiot merc contracts and idiot braindead players that are left on this game, when so much good to super uni players have left, because all of this stupidity that console is doing and now we have player base that plays on mostly tier ten and 95% of those are totally incompetent, braindead morons that havent learned and never will learn anything and just chase those idiotic mercs to the end of this game

One interesting aspect is I don’t hesitate of the line at the start of game, I know where I’m going as soon as I see map and team makeup’s. 

At least once every day I create a sad panda because I stole all the spots they need for merc ops and they complain about till they get sent to garage which is thankfully usually fairly early. 

 

Occasionally they yolo right past me to reds base to try and get remaining spots and die. 

I enjoy creating sad pandas!

 

This is the current state of lights in wargaming.

If you touch em (by accident of course) so they circle a bit at start in homebase and have some problems then, finding the right way to the battlefield so you stand in their way  (I Sometimes do the booze while playing, no intention of course) leads to weird reactions. They start dumping the magazine at you and go yolo without any impact neither for the round nor for these silly contracts. Seems like wifey does not supporting the yolo and autoload in the bedroom.
