Tier X Lights May Become Relevant with New Buffs
When Tier 10 Light Tanks were introduced in World of Tanks, Wargaming also changed all of the light tank lines at all tiers and changed the matchmaking.
Called the ‘Light Tank Apocalypse’, the changes ended up with a lot of light tanks being nerfed (for example, the once great AMX Elc Bis), some buffed, and others affected by the new MM.
But the Tier 10 Lights, after all the fanfare, were seen as a disappointment. Their view range was actually LOWER than medium tanks at tier, and combined with poor armour and lower DPM, the lights just didn’t seem to have much of a role.
Now, it appears all but one of the Tier 10 lights will be getting a buff in 9.20.1.
In general, expect improvements to firepower, but unfortunately it doesn’t appear that view range will be improved.
