I’m certain there is an increased number of light tanks per battle system since I last played. Used to be 2-4 and sometimes 6. But every game I’ve had tonight have been 6-8 and usually high tier and experienced. Gut says merc contract or op has  brought them out but I haven’t heard of anything.

That answers for tier 9/10 only.

There's the Tusk Contract, that new AMX 13 Mle 58 that was released today, and the super-cheap AMX 13/57 personal offer last week.

Should cover the important tiers.


You can PM with with questions, if you wish. I don't bite.

Yup, I had to quit playing lights during the last Tusk contract, just so tedious trying to spot with 6 scouts on your team!  This time, look for me in my RU, I will be couter-scouting all the grinders! :playing:

guessing it is mostly due to the Tusk contract, lots and lots of platoons of them pesky lights here lately. Last night I came across several platoons with 4 or 5 light tanks....

Would you say it’s a “Swarm of light tanks .” ?

Why complain? Only makes it easier for you to win when a third of the red team is playing inferior tanks.

Tusk contract is the answer. I have helped three friends grind their 7/8 lights to the 9 or 10 for the contract this week

There’s also that Op that requires spiotting 10 tanks in winning games. So the YOLOtards are out in force.

Great another whine thread about light tanks.  Most games are made up or 50% heavy tanks.  Dont see light tank drivers making thread crying about the number of heavies.  Get over man.

Why complain? 

I'm not sure why you two mention this since the only complaint or whine I might make in this topic is that you seem to want to see a complaint and a whine present in a topic which otherwise doesn't have a complaint or whine in it and CivilWarGoat,  not only did you imagine it, you moaned about it. I'm somewhat baffled by the interpretation by more than one person and I wonder how the confusion occurred or whether your comprehension skills will allow you to understand these points. 

 

 I simply observed an increased number of experienced light tankers in high tiers(I was playing tiers 7 and 8) in pretty much all battles which goes against the typical trend and was seeking a plausible explanation for the change and confirmation of my suspicions that there was a Merc contract or OP going on that I wasn't aware of which brought about the change.  

 

Thanks to people who can actually comprehend, I have that answer.

That fits right in with my observations since tier VIII and tier VIIs were what I was rolling out. .

I’m working on redoing the 7/1 now as well as finishing the Emil 2.

9 and 10 is roving auto loading light tank death squads.

Hey the tusk contract is only out for another few months!

Destroys tier 9 and 10 matchmaking in my opinion for 4 months per year.

At least this year they've added TD's to the Tusk contract, so we may see less lights than last time. They've also released the HMH 58 which I guess is timed to capitalize on people on the Tusk contract. FWIW, I did the Tusk grind last time, and I still carry the guilt.

 

FWIW, I'm rolling out in my 54 lwt and T100LT on anti scout duties, so I'm kind of part of the problem and the solution ;)

yes, not the most enjoyable morning,  cold shower after poor night sleep created a need to perform some maintenance on the instant hot water system which while effective, had me running very late and rushed, I get to work to find I have a VIP user who can’t operate, following a major comms refresh last night,  another user who just started who needs attention for other reasons and my 10 o’clock had arrived early.

 I mostly got over that though before writing. I was more baffled than anything as to where the idea of this being a complaint thread about light tanks came from

I didn’t see anything out of the ordinary last night. Tiers VIII-X were mostly Heavies and TD’s with the requisite 2 Arty per side. I got eviserated in 3 games last night with a single shot. 

 

Business as usual in the higher tiers

I like lights when they are on my team, the game is set up for them now. I seen lots of top guns by lights yesterday at tier 10- good job. You have to be good to do that. Naturally I hate lights, lights on the other team LOL!:teethhappy:

I was seeing 3-4 light tanks most games last night, tiers 6-10. Many Yolo deaths for contacts
