I speculate that 90% of light tank players would have better win rates if they sat on the flag for the first 2 minutes of every fight.

Certainly if they wouldn't Yolo into enemy territory and get blown up within one minute.

I dunno, I quite like shooting them. All you gotta do is sit at base for an extra 30 secs and one pops up

It looks like your real secret to winning in light tanks is to simply drive a T1e6?

There was a time when playing a light tank didn’t come with much reward. It was a real challenge and few rose to it. Those who did were a strange bunch, but knew that they could easily swing a battle in their teams favour if they stayed alive long enough. Alas, those times were long gone when I stopped playing several years ago. God I wish this game would go back to what it used to be.

You mean when there were only three nations to choose from and only two possible tier V lights that saw tier X? No thanks.

Oh, you missed out. 

The Chaffee was great fun. 

 

FYI, the Leopard only saw tier IX. Scouts saw four tiers up back then, which happened to include the mediocre Panzer 38 nA. 


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

another problem is now mediums and even some heavies have better view range than the lights have, 

to be an effective scout you have to spot before they can spot you, but now you can sit in a bush with cammo net and bi-focals and still get outspotted by a medium just driving around.

as well as all the other issues, yoloers, and of coarse the muppet train of fail where you go one way arty stays at base and you see 13 tanks all follow each other on the opposite flank(my personal favorate)

I was there, I just don’t miss it. Though I thought the Leopard saw X. Been a few years!

You could still fail-platoon them into tier 10 games back then.

Only if they leave the flag after the two minutes

wouldn't they be dead by the third minute instead the first?

I speculate that if 90% of light tank drivers sat at base for the first 2 minutes of a game and then yolo'd successfully to the enemy base they'd still be greeted by a top tier enemy heavy tank. Not camping no, but still trying to decide which way to go ;).
