So, I recently bought back my Leopard PTA and I noticed I have an extremely low win rate in it, a morbid 42%. I also don't seem to be doing very well in it, I lose alot of battles, as suggested by my win rate. I try to snipe at the beginning of the match and then flank towards the middle.end. Anyway, please respond, I'd like to hear your opinions. Also, any help you can provide for the playstyle of this tank would be appreciated. Thanks!

How good is your crew? Swapping my WZ-120 crew from 1skill to 3 skill crew increased my winrate from 42% to 50+%

 

I think some skills like 6th sense and camo are essential in mediums at high tier gameplay.

Running a stock PTA with a 75%, no skills crew is going to be unbelievably painful. Seriously, I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy. 

 

Buy a low tier German premium with the sale to train a crew up or move a 100% crew + 6th sense commander from another tank into that thing asap if you actually want to keep going down that line.

Keep it, i here the leopard 1 is REALLY good. I'm in the same boat with lorraine, terrible win rate, but the batchat should be worth the grind.

This is probably why. You are already playing at a disadvantage.

Good advice.

I didnt say it was stock. I'll get a T-25, though. Try and train them up. Thanks.

It's been a difficult grind for me as well and that's with a three skill crew.  I agree with Expendable_Lad as well and would add that given the tank's armor values (or lack thereof) that 100% camo crew has helped.  I've also had to change the medium play style I'm most familiar with from the T-54, WZ-120, E-50, etc. and switched to more of a second line and passive scout style like I used with the Lorraine.

Good call. T-15 is a quick little beast if you don't mind tier 3 as well. 

 

Even elited, PTA is really unforgiving.  Since you have no armor it is almost imperative to know when you are spotted. Good luck bud.
