I'm am rather broke in WOT, I have reached a point where every tank I need to get is in the upward millions and I simply don't have the heart to make cash.



I don't really have many big tanks, I was considering selling my Lorraine to make some cash. I already have the Bat chat, and a AMX 13 90.



I used to love the tank at T8, I havn't botherd to play it at T9 since I figured it would be terrible or atleast not what the Bat was.

Should I sell it?

If you have the Bat Chat and don't enjoy playing it then sell it. (I personally hated it at tier 8)

But the Bat Chat was definitely worth the torture :Smile_veryhappy:

I played the tree before the AMX 13 75 became a T7

same but I re bought it not to long ago, I didn't really care being in the tier 10 matches I rather be playing a vk2801 for scouting to me this is not a scout, in tier 10 always have to find a way to attack side Armour.

I can tell you that the Bat Chatillon 25 t is worth it.

Tier 9 tanks are usually sold since there are no specific tournaments for them nor will you use them in clan wars much.
remember to sell the spare parts after you sell the main tank, except perhaps for the radio.
do not sell your crew - you can retrain that at a later date for other fun tanks in the French line if it expands.

Get the BatChat.25t. It's better than the crappy 40t.

The Lorraine at tier 9 to say the least, either sucks or is UP. Sure it has the speed and that troll autoloader, but it isn't fast enough to get hit by everything (The tank is freakin' bigger than a panther II but has even less armor than a Panzer III/IV) .To say the least, the BatChat is a worthy grind to go for, but with the amazingly bad tank that the Lorraine is...it isn't an easy go. Basically you are a tier 9 AMX 50 100...it had pretty much the same gun as it did back when it was tier 8...unfortunately, at tier 9, the tank is quite vulnerable to everything...Arty will kill you even if it just splashes you....

sell it.  They really didn't change anything on it except for its tier.  I sold mine and the 12t last week for my t110e4.  You're better off with an AMX50-100.

I personally sell all tanks once ive gone to the next tier just because i find that even if i hang on to them I usually dont play them that much unless i really like them. the lorraine is awesome, but if you already have the bat then sell the lorraine. Or, you could seel the 1390 and keep the lorriane. Personally I'd sell both the 1390 and the lorriane.

keep the 1390, it is a great tank for tournaments and can still troll after the tier bump.

I dont understand having a Lorraine longer then required due to the AMX 50 100.

"I want a tier 8 "heavy", but in tier 9 form!"

I did the same.  Recently sold my Lorrie, but am holding on to the BatChat and the 13 90.

Broke my heart.  Was one of my favorite tanks, but it isn't the same since the Great French Tree Nerf of 2012.

The 40t is a huge steaming pile of metal that is mostly useless .
