you don't do enough damage to discourage them. and they are really fast compared to the endless medium tanks. and ofc nothing bounces in cold war

 

they should have like.....way less health

Nope. The Cold War lights are almost all garbage, and even the few remaining decent ones are made mostly irrelevant by other tanks in their era (namely tanks like the T95E3 in Era 1 and the many, many T-72s in Era 2 and 3). CW lights aren't even that fast considering that most MBTs can easily do 60-72kph while also having more health, better armor, and better guns, and the only two lights that are notably faster than MBTs in their era are the M41 WB (which is probably the strongest CW light now) and the Armadillo (which was nerfed into the ground and then some for no good reason).

They are very annoying. However, my experience is basically limited to Era 1. In that bracket, I feel like killing off the enemy's lights makes things a lot easier from that point on.

Lights are not fast and have paper armor.They make good support tanks and attract a lot of attention as is.

yea its literally the only goal. destroy the lights and the game becomes a turkey shoot. but they are so painful to deal with and they normally just kill you

In tier 1 the lights are fairly competitive simply because that era is just "World of Mediums". In tier 2 and 3 they are just flat out overshadowed by T-72's that can do everything they can and then some. If anything, light tanks need a buff.

As others have said, lights are honestly awful in CW.
Whilst they are functional in Era 1 (and even then, is the PT-76 functional?), in Era 2 and 3 they might as well be a slightly speedy target that wishes to die.

In those eras, they are either only slightly faster or actually slower than the MBTs available. The slowest Era 3 tank is actually a light.

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

Just wait till Era 2 where the heavies are faster than the lights.

See if the lights are still op then.

You act as if those heavies actually use that speed and don't camp like crazy in era 2.

You act like they don't use that speed to yolo the first tank they see most of the time.

I see everything balanced pretty well. Lights tanks are easier to yolo and be good. Or dead. You can't yolo in T95E3. Good player has no issues to deal with lights, but bad players sure have. That's why lights are easy to play. But once again you should know how to play lights or you are dead. They are balanced.

 

Or play lights yourself! You probably won't be good.. They are not op. They are balanced.

Don't play them and I don't fear them.

 

Going up against platooned 116 TDs in a 44a though certainly increased the pucker factor.

Yes, the NM116 platoons make Era 1 alot tougher now.

 

As for OP, lights only really work in Era 1, but the player needs to know what they are doing.

It is not easy mode by any stretch.

 

Don't use auto aim when dealing with an LT.

If you can, ram them. Quite often they get tracked and then they are quickly finished off.

No point playing lights in CW anymore

All the people lamenting the CW lights have no one to thank but them selves.
Being short sighted they cry babied about the Armadillo being op , so WG hit it with the super duper nerf and did a blanket light tank nerf for good measure so the whineing would stop. Of course they kept that crazy BMP2 ROF that desperately needs to be nerfed.

The "Crazy BMP2 Rate of fire" that takes over 30s of firing to do 3000 damage from your magazine? Yeah, so crazy. 

 

(And that's only if you pen all 200 rounds.....which you wont)

 

You're literally QQing about the second worst vehicle in era 2.

The Armadillo problem was simple, stay away from them! Let them circle T72s until they get took out.

 

It amuses me how players can't adjust to new experiences, and instead of doing something about it they'll just continue to moan until something is done about it. 

 

This brings me to a nice phrase I like, "If you can't build the tallest building, then make all the buildings around you smaller".

 

But yeah, I don't mind the Obj 934 for a CW light. It's a nice silver earner. I hardly ever use the rockets on it, I can't see the point. If the prices for CW premiums came down a bit I wouldn't mind the Mauler. That looks fun.

 

I have nothing against CW mode, I just find more thought goes into a WW2 game than a CW yolo harvest.

Name another tank that causes framerate drop.

Any fast firing tank in the game crashes the Xbox One X. Can’t zoom in or it switches off . WG knows about it . It’s been reported and still isn’t fixed.

Another thing is bots in CW . Smokes used and bots have no problems firing through it. You try the same and it’s nope not gonna happen. Bot right in front of you? Nah that’s a bounce. People seem to complain about the wrong things round here .
