Hello,

Ive been playing W.O.T for a while now (not too long). Recently I started researching down the german light tank path. I was wondering what's one of the best end game active scout tanks? Or whats the best scout tank line?

 

Thanks

In order:

Russia.

China.

.

.

France (If you can master autoloaders it's a bit closer)

.

USA (T71 is great and the derp gun high tiers are amusing but not really scouty)

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

Germany

End game active scouting isn't really a thing. Everyone has vision and everyone else's guns are accurate with higher velocity shells so you'll get punished. Beyond that, if being fast is your thing and you don't particularly care how much impact you'll have on most maps, then yeah order as above.

 

Tho to be honest I'd hold off in hopes one day WG redress some of their approach to balancing them.

A light tank in the end game is just a shitty medium. 

 

Light tank contribution is mainly through early game position denial and/or mid game camp breaking.

Well, it's a better active scout than the Valentine, I suppose.


Personally though, the only British light tank I'd go active scouting in these days is the Light VIC.

The Stuart is actually Not too bad.  My kids were playing it and I gave her a go.  I'd forgotten how good it was.

I do love WG balancetm when my prem tier 6 LT will out spot most tier 8 lights even with equivalent crews.

 

Hey crew, you have to move from your 6 light to an 8 light, are you ok with that???

But but, my view range... my DPM...

Fair and balanced comrade. Just be glad we aren't making you play the 9 any more - you got back your view range but your accuracy went to shit... because WG balance! Oh and your 6 still has better DPM...

First,Lt is a bit hard to play now.so here are some good Lt now,vk have some armor for it tier(can bounce some 75mm gun),good view range for 59-16,12t is good with the autoloader but awkward gun ele and des,t37 lose it trademark high pent(I cant really sad anything about it),so I would suggest u play china Lt line since it has 2 good prem Lt(type 62 and 64)

Best active scout, depends on your tier, since you've just started(as reference) go down the Pz. I C line.
