All light tanks shout not be used by newbies. Playing light tanks requires more skill than heavy tanks.

the vickers light is surprisingly easy to play and forgiving. It has good mobility, amazing gun and fexibility and most important: mantlet armor to get bounces. 

 

it indeed is harder to play then heavies but if a newb wants to play lights he should first go vickers light

In my opinion medium tanks require more skill as they have a bit of everything and so, no specialties, whereas light tanks have speed small size and good firepower or dpm and heavies, more armor. 
anyways the best light tank in my opinin is the French light tank line, I’ve never played the tanks from tier 8 and up but the three tanks below them seem good, but they are harder to master than the other light tank lines. Plus their small size is a bonus.

Yes, I own a Patton and out of all my tier 10 in  my garage it can nuke Sheridan's.   in a 1v1 match the Sheridan's mortal enemy is the M48.  especially now that the M48 has been buffed.

Heavy tanks are very easy and newbie friendly,  However personally i think a newbie should pick a light tank line and ruin there win8 because light tanks teach players how to sense a good opportunity, when to flee, when to push, etc.

the amount of times at the end of a battle the last tank is always a light tank.........     ;)

personally i would never grind the leopard 1 now because the Vickers does the same and has HESH and light tank camo.....  ( i do own a Leopard 1 BTW)

Nah, Leo 1 is still relevant. Leopard 1 has got better mobility and DPM than Vickers. Vickers is actually a FAKE tank because there were no blueprints about the development. The only TRUE tank in the line is FV301 since there were 2 prototypes built already by 1950. Back to the topic, Leopard 1 has the best gun (Damn, it doesn't even need any equipment). Also, I feel Sheridan is useless since missiles got nerfed and eventually got removed. I still own it in EU, and it feels sort of useless. Also WG has made Leopard 1 UNFAIRLY weak to vickers in terms of HE pen. Leopard 1 should have 105mm of HE pen because its a god damn HEP. HEP is another word for HESH. IT CARRIES A L7A3 GUN WHICH SHOULD HAVE 105MM OF HE PEN NOT 53MM, SINCE ITS THE LATEST GUN IN BLITZ (GOT INTRODUCED IN 1965).  All L7 gun tanks (Non-leo) have 105mm of he pen, but leo gets 53mm of he pen for no reason. IT HAS TO BE BUFFED AND DONT NERF ANYTHING WHEN THE HE PEN IS BUFFED OTHERWISE LEO IS LIKE A COMPUTER WITHOUT SOFTWARE.

 true that. Leo would do better with HEP (like the RU251)  its a good tank though, but very dependent on the map and team.

I dont know if you were joking or not lol

for light tanks, it depends, they would be either the first to die, or somewhere in mid battle, in my opinion. at the last of the battle is also common, but not as much as the two former situations. also it depends on the team members again, in my opinion.

and, i agree with ProAryanGamer, the leopard (along with STB-1 def and most other medium tanks) should receive some buffs, or maybe light tanks receive some nerfs...

yep, STB-1 has a terrible tech tree for newbie players.  needs a bit of love form WG to make them excel at a certain dynamic.   

most med lines have something that others don't. (leopard DPM/speed.   E50M armour/speed,  TVP 50T autoloader, etc......) STB-1 was the hulldown tank (and still does well at it) but the recent buffs to the M48 Patton have made them both very similar. (although M48 is more DPM and STB has a bit more armour).   Yeah, Japanese tech tree along with the FV 183's tech tree both need a bit of  a rebalancing.  So true mate! :)

Actually FV should get another researchable (STOCK) 183mm gun with AP/HEAT or APCR/HE. Pen values 310/400-500/92. Make the hesh gun researchable like at 100 xp, just like the FV4002's gun. Alternatively, just remove fv from the game and add back the FV217 Badger as a TECH TREE TANK, because the badger really suits and fits in the line, like better front armor, gun and dpm. FV could be made a collector or a premium tank. In WOT (NOT BLITZ), I think FV is a premiuim tank.

I agree. The whole british td line from AT-2 to Tortoise is strongly armored, turretless and has insane accurate and dpm gun.

Then suddenly there’s the 183. No armor. has a TURRET, and poor accuracy and dpm with the largest gun in the game. 

Idk man this is pretty dumb.
