Which is better?

Which should I buy and use?

Honestly, people... Stop with all the "this or that" threads. Sure, they aren't beaten to death as much as others, but still.
Yeah, sometimes they're quite helpful to someone who's on the fence and needs help planning their next move...

But most of the time, you're asking players to compare two completely different tanks, and all it boils down to is people's opinions and experiences...
The best way to learn a tank, is to drive it.
Same goes for learning each and every single one of their weaknesses. Usually I do best fighting against tanks I used to or currently own.

Sometimes it's not possible to just decide to get a tier eight, nine, or ten, and asking people for help is necessary, but come on.
Asking people to compare two low tier tanks that have almost nothing in common? Use your head.

French light or Russian heavy?
You shouldn't be wondering which would better suit your play style, and if you are, then you haven't got your play style clear, and you should go and do that before asking questions...

ELC AMX is more for rushing around the battlefield while the T-150 is just a buffed up KV-1. THe top gun on the T-150 is a great gun though!

The ELC AMX is not like other Tier 5 Lights, it has no turret and is best to play it as a TD, but the speed is quite amazing, the 90mm is the gun if you want to torture Tier 7s and 8s.

As for the T-150, I've never played it but as far as I know, it is the classic MMO tank, it has superior Hit Points and Armor Values to the KV-1S and KV-2, but is slower and is often left behind a major advance, but you can use it as a Meat Shieild similar to the Warrior in the FF series.

I can't tell if the purpose of this thread is to belittle those that ask questions like this or because you actually want to know which one to buy, though I suspect the former. If not, go to the wiki and read about them there.

The T-150 is amazing in that;
-It can significantly damage Tier VI's, Tier VII's, Tier VIII's, and even Tier IX's if it has gold rounds.

Should probably read the thread.

I love how the 1st, 2nd, and 4th posters just completely ignored the OP.  We sure are an observant bunch, here.

Heh.

FWIW, I find the 'X vs. Y' threads interesting and often helpful. We've all been at that point, where we're trying to decide what tank to buy next, and it may well be an ELC vs. a T-150 choice, if you're working a couple lines. I was today deciding between a KV-2 and a Hellcat (got KV-2 because on sale).

In any case, hearing what other people's experiences were, their thoughts about the line and tanks to follow, etc. has been a huge benefit for me. Yes, there's a lot of threads like this, but the beauty of forums is that you can just skip it.

Plus, you should get an ELC, just know it's not a scout. ;)
