Yes, I'm new. I have less then 50 games. Right now I have all 4 classes of US tanks at 2nd tier, except for the Tank Killer which I just got the 3rd tier. Before I ask my question I'm going to break down my thoughts on the 4 classes:
Light Tanks: Almost useless. It's the only tank that I don't average at least 1 tank kill a match. I see them as good for spotting, but as cannon fodder to do it.
Med. Tanks: My favorite all around tank. Gives enough armor to survive spotting and fire power to get those lights.
Tank Killers: Now these guys intrigue me. I usually get at least 1 kill, more about a third of the time. I like the sniping and have no trouble waiting in hiding.
SPGs: I love this class. I just wish I could get more protection in random solo games.
So my question is, should I even bother with progressing my light tank? Is there a style of play that works well with lights that doesn't involve just running around hoping to kill someone before I get killed? Am i strange for liking SPGs? Any tips or suggestions, or outright 'don't do it man!' would be appreciated :)
