Id rather play the lee. 

this thing is so-so vs tier 5/6  much less 8/9

 

I guess you gotta have a **** tank somewhere in the line...

I've heard good things about it but I won't be touching any of the swedes with a 10 foot pole, even on the test server.

Working the TD line myself.  6 up seems to be decent.  The Tier 5 was brutal.  From what I read on the Leo, seems the 2nd 75 seems to be preferred over the 10.  A few threads on it.  The tank seems to have positive feedback.  Nothing stellar, but nothing bad either.

No, it isn't. And neither is the lee. The leo is just a lesser comet, which still puts it ahead of something like a t43 or panther.

I found the Leo awful while stock but once I got all the moduals is was ok imo. There are worse in my eyes.

Great.  I'm half way through Tier 4.  I think I got about 30k free xp.  May use that to skip Tier 5.

I played it as I worked up the line and kind of played it like a Comet with the 75 mm gun. I actually like it better than the Comet because of the 60 kph speed is much better than the Comet's 50 kph limit. It's almost like a light tank that gets regular tank mm and the camo values of the tank are really high for a medium tank, even on the move. One other interesting thing about the Leo is that it does not have the option to mount a vertical stabilizer but it has such good dispersion on the move [with the 75 mm gun] that it is as good as a Comet that has the stabilizer. So this actually is an advantage since you don't take up an equipment slot with the vertical stabilizer and can mount vents instead. Check out Tanks.gg and compare the Leo gun dispersion value to the Comet and the Leo is actually better in a lot of the parameters.

Have you played the AMX M4 45? I don't feel comfortable playing in a game with mostly Tier V, let alone VII-IX. Hell, I bet a Lee alone could take this thing on.

You must not have never played the T28 prototype or else you'd never insinuate the Leo was worse...

hey the M4 is ok, just use the 105 and spam apcr.

 

also the worst tank in the game is the swedish T5 TD.

It's not "strong", it could be better, but I like the Leo because it has a little bit of speed, which can make it good in many situations once you get the hang of these kinds of tanks.  You kinda have to play it like a light tank against anything that isn't an equal or weaker tank.  I use mine with the pew pew gun.

Like many tanks in game this one sucks really bad when stock. It sucks less when fully upgraded. I liked the mobility, gun depression, and traverse. What brings this tank down is the gun choices. Go for the high alpha gun and you will be hard pressed to hit anything. Use the smaller gun and you tend to bounce a lot of round. If this had a better gun it would be a far better option than it is. Thank God the light at the end of the grind tunnel starts with the Emil I.

Tank is garbage. Had to work hard to really do much of anything when bottom tier. Top tier you can carry but you really have to be careful about hitpoints. This tank will bounce nothing.

 

I used the smaller gun. The pen is almost identical (a difference of 8 pen isn't even worth mentioning when you take rng into account). The smaller gun has way better gun handling, more dpm, and the reload allows you to actualy fight another medium or light if they push you. I tried the top gun for about 30 battles and it was too innacurate even at mid range. Close range you will hit and pen but then you will also lose hp each time you engage someone.

 

So glad I'm done with this piece of crap. There are worse tanks out there for sure, but this tank is still bad.

I wouldn't classify this tank as the worst in the game.  Far from it.  

 

14 battles with it and I really enjoy it.  I used free exp to fully upgrade it, so I didn't have to suffer grinding it, and its a very capable tank.  

 

I haven't played the comet in forever so I can't compare this to a comet.  Play style that works for me is how I play the Leo PTA and Leo 1.  Big scout, always on the move looking to flank and support.  Never brawl with it.

 

I use the 10cm gun mostly.  HE rounds are especially fun on lights.  Really burns the little bastards up.  Top 75cm is good to but right now the 10cm is my favorite.

Just a free experience mine for the devs. They have perfected making dogs in lines for that purpose and making terrible over powered premium tanks.

If you didn't grind it out of stock form, hardly qualify you as someone who can be a fair judge of the Leo. 

 

For a MT, it's got paper armor, large size get it spotted more often than some HTs, tank traverse is simply horrendous; worse than some HTs.

I take back what I wrote previously.  The novelty wore off long ago.  

 

I hate it.
