Welp, I logged in and immediately went to see what they did to my lights... 

 

First thing I noticed was that optics are no longer viable on the Chaffee, T37 and pretty much any light tank in those tiers (except the type 64, of course)... then I noticed they reduced the health to TD levels and below...  ELC went from 400 to 320 and I was one shot by a tier IV arty my first time out... The ELC's gun lost 50 pen which is fine, even expected... but health? I feel that was a little extreme. I understand things will probably get tweaked here and there because live server is always different than test, but we will have to wait and see.  They have over nerfed the lights in this range imo.

 

On the positive side, I did receive a handful of new lights in my garage to play with. I am now the owner of a Hawk, a Batchat 12t and the LTTB.  I will try to remain positive about this change, but I think it will be tough. At least for now...

I feel your pain Black.

 

Check out what they did to the Bulldog...6 rnd clip with 36 sec. load time. The same 6 rnd clip on the T71 loads in 20 secs. I wonder who over at WG worked that one out?

It no longer sees T8 so in theory it shouldn't get hit as hard which is why they did a health reduction.20% probably too much but some health had to get shaved in theory.In reality so much of their offense was reduced you probably didn't have to reduce their defense. Try the ELCs other gun (76mm?).Is is now supposedly viable.

Don't run the autoloader anymore, switch back to the single shot on the bulldog and it works a lot better, its now a tier 8 version of what the T37 was at tier 6.  The T37 on the other hand is pretty well toast, I think it got the hardest nerf of any tank in the US tree.

I hope this isn't a real emergency, I only brought one bottle of rum.

i switched to the 76mm on the ELC just to see how it plays with a real turret now...not to bad but it has lost all its uniqueness. 

 

on another note the amx1357 is crazy good now thanks to the new MM, not being nerfed and being able to mount Vert Stab.

Haven't switch my ELC yet, will have to wait til i get time.

 

Now the Leopard with the new 5cm L 60/L it gets is a grand ole time.Its the top of the T5 lights.I highly recommend a revisit.

 

I've also heard good things about the T-50 bumping up to 5.Its just a notch below the Leopard.

I didn't fair that well in the 54Lt Wt.  Now the 13 90 that I re-bought, not a bad machine.

I was watching Cheekyman's stream and he likes it better now than when it was a T8. Gun handling is greatly improved, you can add a vstab and ~20 sec. reload on the clip.

I've heard T49 with the fast firing gun is fun as well as the 1390. The LW and RU are meh.132 is slightly better, Bulldog with autoloader is bad but with other gun is workable, the HK or whatever replaced the RU is bad, and the LTTB can be fun but isn't necessarily a good tank. 

 

I've played the Type 62 and averaged over 2k damage and 1k spotting and I had awful maps and never was top tier (all matches with T8).
