Supertest: Tier X LT buffs

The tier X LTs are getting buffed, as they are (unsurprisingly) underperforming. There will be a generally small increase to their ammo capacity and (with the exception of the WZ-132-1) either a damage buff or a RoF buff. The Rheinmetall Panzerwagen gets a few more changes, namely its alpha damage gets reduced in exchange for major gun handling and rate of fire buffs.

    1. Tbh, I feel like that better solution would be to decrease the view range of all other tier 10s by 10-20 metres instead of giving LTs ridiculous view ranges. Give LTs 400m view range on average and HTs/MTs 380m.

        1. Maps in World of Tanks… say it with me… DON’T ALLOW SCOUTING!
          Too few spots for lights and TDs to hide left, and guessable, so you can quite reliably blindfire them.

      1. It gets less DPM and alpha and the total damage potential is increased by a measely 400dmg with that 5 round change. It’s a boxtank light with what is now a 90 or 100mm gun, it should have at least 40 rounds. Only the gun handling itself is kind of a buff and it’s barely sufficient, but the aimtime buff is nice.

  1. Rip RHM, you have less dpm with lower alpha, plus WZ 131 A has more dpm on tier 9, same dmg.

    RHM is worst LT ever. He good at spotting, and only that. Sheridan 390 and that dpm…yea

    And AMX105 will be way more broken…WG cant balance shit.

    1. If you think that the 13 105 is broken is that or you don t play the game or don t play the tank or don t know that BC is better in everything except aim time and a bit of cammo, because it has Shit pen like all ligths 0.4 accuracy much more worst than rhm, shit view range and 360 alpha is pure shit, why play this instead a BC?

      1. There is a difference between broken and over-powered. The reload between the shells on 105 is too short. It kills all tier 10 lights in ~6 seconds. Furthermore it’s a very small target with insane camo. But that is ok for me. And YES Bc25t is better because its broken and/or op as well

  2. what they need is the view range advantage over Every other class.
    I love my Sheridan and WZ-132A(tier 9) but MT just do the job themselves.
    Also tier 9 LT do better than tier 10.

        1. Meds can spot the t100 before it can see them as meds can get there view range to 500 which in turn deletes t100 camouflage value to 20% again t100 is not that good

  3. The list seems almost logical (no VR buff aside), until I see Rhm Wagon and Alpha nerf. Seriously, WG?

    At least make it to 7-8 sec reload and 40 shells if you really want to make it a 320 damage peashooting light.

  4. Not enough. Fire control is still garbage. The view range is still garbage. They still get one-shot by scumbags.
    They need to increase the view range of these light tanks by a lot, like 445 m or more, meaning they will be able to “pierce” camouflage and spot things hidden behind bushes. If their purpose is to find enemies, let them do it and making everyone else blind is not the correct way to do it.

    1. they were pretty much perfected on their first introduction maybe just a slight view range reduction to maybe 410 or 400. now though if you see one in the game you think well thats a waste of a tier 10…

  5. Tfw people still don’t realize having lights with 440 base view range is a bad idea, and their current iteration is much better for the game (vr wise).

    1. I just want them to have more then the tier 9’s. Not less in some cases. 410 would be an upgrade for most. Or 400 flat. 390 or less is not ideal either. Just like 440 would not be ideal.

  6. WG finally gives the light tanks some buffs. Yet you guys still want to complain. I actually dont mind the rhm panzer wagon changes. And I have the tank itself ! Aside from maybe a small buff to view range, the other buffs are fine

    1. It’s barely called a buff since it cancels out with the alpha damage nerf and even then it’ll still be worse than the other lights.

  7. You can always expect the worst to happen coming from these vegetable developers. They’re buffing and nerfing the Rhm to the point of which it basically only receives a slight buff while other light tanks get purely buffed! They’re really good at making me angry, 9 second reload for 320 alpha, as if 360 wasn’t already trash, it’s unreal, this tank isn’t a heavily armored or demonically fast tank(it’s barely faster than the other lights), it doesn’t need a gun nerf.

    Like

    1. I actually don’t mind it, as the soft stats are trash as is now, and the DPM is not ideal. If I can get shots out faster from the hip with better aim, and hit more often, vs more alpha. I’ll take the first one.

  8. To make the T10 Lights real scouts they need view range, better than the ones on the other classes. Something like 420-450. And to balance that, WG can just increase the max spotting range up to sth like 460, but no more than 470

    Like

  9. Well it’s a start. I never understood why they nerfed the AMX & Sheridan’s alpha to 360 from 390 in the first place “as no light should have that much” as they said.. Then instantly gave the Chinese one 390. I never did feel neither of them was “OP” or even a bit broken with that alpha. Not minding the alpha nerf on the German one tho if the aim time and reload is faster….. Still no view range buffs tho?

  10. The fact that they start re-buffing the lights is a good sign. I think view range advantage is not worth much due to the current maps, but it’s a step in the right direction.

    I hope they start rebuffing the other “servant” classes that WG so graciously made unplayable lately.

  11. LTs that are supposed to be fast and to scout for enemies get… WAIT FOR IT… higher DPM, higher alpha, better gun handling.
    WG just went full retard.

    LTs are supposed to scout and be able to pen higher tiers for harassment and to track them. They are not supposed to kill them, it is not their job to do DPM.
