To be fair i don't think wg realised how broken the wheel shields would be in practice. If every hit did damage to them, they'd hardly be an issue.

I think that is probably true, but I doubt they were surprised by the effectiveness of the 2 shot autoloader and high pen HE.

 

That effectively counters the weakness of "low dpm" wheeled tanks that all the other wheeled tanks have. Especially in Frontlines where lightly armoured opposition is prevalent.

 

 

Add in crazy good on the move dispersion and improved auto aim, not to mention  small frontal area, speed and maneuverability and it falls into the , "what were they thinking" category.

It seems more like "Were they thinking?" category to me Card

It's an interesting one. The double barrel mechanics idea has been bounced around for some time, they've had various iterations in ST, have held them out of CT as well, just trying to tweak them so they are both interesting while not being broken. While iirc the wheelies basically just went live. I can't recall them being tested much at all.

I agree, I think they spent a lot of time internally testing them, but that was more about getting the mechanics of wheels themselves rather than the balance effect on on the meta.

 

In fact the only real tweaking they did in supertest and test was on top speeds and fiddling with the launch control start that they ended up abandoning. 

 

I think that they have a blind spot when it comes to testing light tanks in general and they have always struggled to understand how they fit in the meta. You saw this not only with wheels, but also with the introduction of tier 9 & 10 LTs, the removal of scout MM and rebalance that ensued.

 

Then also there are the British LTs, which similarly seemed to be rushed through testing only with the opposite result to wheeled tanks...
