  1. I’m still only seeing an M41 with 370m view range. The slight buffs to the gun still aren’t nearly enough to make up for this. Even the M41-90 still has 400m view range, as do a number of mediums at this tier.

    And for that matter, keep in mind that the standard M41 is an ineffective scout as it is, and not a great medium either. The M41-90 renders both laughably obsolete, and hp/t alone isn’t going to change that.

      1. That doesn’t necessarily mean that the Blackdog is OP, just as reasonable to conclude that the regular M41 (and many other tech tree light tanks) are underpowered. When WG made the light tank re-tiering some time back they massively and needlessly nerfed many light tanks in the last minute of testing, and even now it still hasn’t occurred to them that so few lights are even remotely compatible with the corridor/armor meta.

        I’d say that the pre-nerf lights actually set a good benchmark for what the standard lights should be capable of.

  2. Oh boy, another article regarding game changes. I can’t wait to see how Wargaming gets out of this one…oh another damn premium. That is clearly what the player base and the game needs to thrive

  3. I think it’s alright as a new Prem LT.

    Comparing it to M41 90mm (GF) is pre-LT nerf.

    M41 90mm has still OP aspect of it specially the HEP type ammo. very devastating against paper armor, waffles, and its peers.

    1. If you’re a hardcore collector and want every premium available, yes. Otherwise Type 62 and Type 64 are better. If you want a premium M41, the German one says hi.

  4. What a shit tank, I already feel sorry for anyone that will buy it.
    As if normal Bulldog wasn’t bad already, they want to release the version that has no view range on a big, paper tank.
    I guess if they would make this tank actually good WG would indirectly confirm that light tanks are not competetive in current meta which in turn would require buffs on all lights, especially tier 10s.
    So yeah, another bad light is what we will get…
