  1. just look at that DPM – if you compare it to other tier 8 LTs, its just plain better (by roughly 20% compared to good ones like LTTB or even more if you take HWK 12.
    and even tier 8 MTs seem much worse – almost all have only 2k or slightly less, with often not much better pen (180 to 190 for most parts). plus worse aim times. So if this thing doesn’t get bad dispersion values, there is not much what tier 8 MTs offer offer this thing. armor is not relevant for most games as tier 9 and 10 pen you anyway.

    only bad thing so far: -5° GD. thats just plain annoying.


    1. This is the sort of DPM that should be normal for a typical tier 8 light/medium. Its not that 2.3k base is really that amazing, its that the others are just so terrible.


      1. Completely agree on this one, tier 8 meds and lights should get dpm buffs to make them more competetive. The fact that in WG mind its ok to give a tank with 240 alpha same dpm as 390 or 440 alpha heavy and also give them way less pen is hillarious. But hey, we cant have anything challenging heavy tanks at this tier, that would require random Defender driver to actually be aware of something other than same tier TDs and heavies.


      2. Indeed, but try to convince WG to adjust the current dpm ranges of med/lt’s to this much more value. Good luck with that.
        WG has been stonewalling such simple changes to give logical dpm progression through the tiers.

        Such changes would undermine much of their monitization strategy, of deliberately putting in very mediocre vehicles in the tech tree in order to persuade/push players into spending when they reach a certain frustration level.

        But yes, 2.3k base dpm has been suggested for like 2 years. As a way to actually get tier 8 balance inline with tech tree dpm/alpa progression. Some tier 7’s also fall under this regime.
        This was the thought behind balance 2.0, to address this top down, but WG has shelved this regretfully.


  2. I remember when it was T-44-85.
    Good old times.
    Well, I need a new light tank crew trainer, so.. might as well… Especially because of how this crap is comparable to (if not better than) other tier 8 meds.


    1. No offense meant Cobra, I agree on most if not all things you give feedback on!…but:
      you have been critical in feedback since some years now (like me)…but why then keep on playing (paying?) a product, and it’s direction of development, you are not agreeing with?

      The same goes for a lot of forum folks btw…question is, what message does that give Wargaming, if one swallows and keeps on playing?

      Verandering komt niet met doorgaan in een patroon waar je een hekel aan hebt 😉


  3. And another premium that makes the regular tier 8 mediums/lights bite the dust…well done WG lead developers/marketing/financial reps and management…well done!

    Too bad most players keep complaining about, but still keep on playing…rather hypocritical of them if you ask me.

    If you are really disgusted by how WG runs their show…in WG eye’s: playing = AGREEING with their product, development and strategy….simple


    1. You can keep playing but not paying. Like in the new EA game. For the first time those who complained did NOT buy their product. In WG case, you can continue playing, but never giving another dime. Decline in profits from long time players is a strong message
