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.

T15 used to be the best but since the new matchmaking its lumped in with all these pesky machine gunners ....I wish it would get higher  tiers but alas it's ..ruined......

 

e25 now is the now last word in German scouting ...great tier placement ...insane camo ...you can make quite a bit without firing a shot ...in fact don't because once you do you are public enemy number one....but if you do that can also work out quite favourably if you know what your doing ...not speaking for myself of course so don't bother stat police.

That used to be the Crusader, before they turned it into a medium tank and thus no camo bonus while on the move. That glorious 3" howitzer was many memes. :trollface:

As mentioned above, the type 64 is a real peach.

 

The 13 57 is also a surprisingly very good little number, but the autoloader can catch you out if you're not paying attention. Quick reload though, so provided you've left yourself some wiggle room you can get away with some mistakes. 

 

Both are premiums however so may not be relevant to this point.

13 57 is a potent machine in experienced hands, but for anyone else unskilled in the fine craft of violent rear entry it just becomes another short-lived tank on the team.

honestly the rule is simple: if its fast or agile and have a good base view range, then its a good ACTIVE scout, and by "active" I suppose you are going to fire some shells on the move/flank/troll/circle-strafe etc right? so pay attention for the T71, i dont know how it is now because i 3 marked it before the buff, but i heard people saying that the new MM system makes T71 the best tier to tier tank in the game, so imagine how it is actively scouting, must be very good.

Forum Guy: "All that Marks of Excelence does is to encourage Damage farming over winning".

Me: "YES sir, MOE does encourage dmg farm over winning, just like winning does encourages: YOLO, Camping far back, gold spamming,"world of capping" mindset, OP premium tier 8's purchases, chat rage, platooning to farm win ratio, toxicity, seal clubbing, arty spam etc..... So i guess winning is much more toxic and bad behavior than dmg farming???"  Wait a minute, wow no one has ever thought about that this way??? Then I must be a genius                                                                                                                                                            https://worldoftanks.asia/en/hall-of-fame/vehicles/A100_T49/#wot&w_ts=overall&w_nb=500
