Not necessarily, lots of people received the Badger for free, the potential population of people with the Free XP and Credits sitting around to jump straight to the mle. 51 is pretty low.

 After playing the AMX 65 t, I am really disappointed with it. It just doesn't perform well at much of anything. The armor really doesn't exist, people just shoot the hull and pen, even if they are lower tier. The mobility doesn't even make sense, the tank has a hard time making it past 35 KMH, which only makes it armor situation worse. On top of that, the guns are average at best. Specifically, the DPM of both guns just don't let you out trade enemy tanks (which probably are faster and or have better armor).  

 

I can only hope the tier 9 and 10 are worth this piece of trash.

Prepare to be disappointed. I played all 3 on common test. I won't waste my time on live server.

was hoping you guys would put in the silly french heavy tanks that were used for the Halloween event in the tree. Personally these new french heavies just come across as a "so what?". They don't seem to add anything and even when seeing them through the testing they were just very bland. You guys didn't even bother covering them that much instead focusing on British TD's and the customization features. If you can't get excited for them how could we?

I've been playing my AMX 40 mle. 45 with a new crew to get the XP to unlock the new tier 8, which I believe I've enough of now.  Been anticipating this release and if the 45 is a good indicator of how the upper tiers will play, should be fun!  Just have to train my commander to at least have 6th sense before I move to the 65 t.

I'm pretty disappointed in the AMX 65t. Even in tier 9 games, it can't do much. I can deal with uncomfortable guns and a lack of armor (since that's the French HT way at tiers 6 and 7), but the 65t's mobility is incredibly underwhelming. Granted, I only have the stock tracks and the 2nd engine, but it hovers around 20kph on soft and medium terrain so I'm not expecting a massive increase in mobility once I do upgrade it.

 

I'll play a few more games, but this entire tank feels like a free xp sink to capitalize on the "popularity" of a new line.

From what I’ve heard, the tier 8 is trash but the 9 and 10 are pretty good.

The AMX 65t needs work. The best setup so far is with the 100mm and stock turret. 

1) The upgraded turret is too easily penetrated (the tumor is too big) compared to the stock turret. 
What is worse, the gun depression loss in the upgraded turret makes it much harder to use the tank and contributes to the tumor penetrations (have to crest too high). 

 

2) The engine is underpowered, it is limited to about 35kph on hard level terrain. It never hits it's top speed of 40kph unless going downhill. When going uphill some 20kph (top speed) heavies outpace me.

agree with above statement the tier 8 is worse than the 7 and far worse than the amx 50t besides stock turret. Second turret is just bad juujuu lol

Up to the T9 myelf, the 65T could use some love.  The hull only bounces when you get lucky and the 2nd turret is unreliable against T8 and lower and worthless in higher tier games so the guns should be better than they are to compensate.  Maybe better the handling, better DPM, or both on both guns.  I'd rather they do that than buff the armor, personally, but that would be acceptable as well.  I preferred the 120 myself, better aim time and alph so less time given to the enemy to get shots into you.  Another option is switching the two turrets in terms of which is stock and which is the upgrade, since right now stock actually has better armor all things considered.

 

The T9 is great, the 127 might need some love to make it more competitive with the comparatively great 120.  The goal should be to make it more unique and that gun accomplishes that.  The mantlet is also SUPER easy to pen with T9 and T10 premium rounds, they should make it easier but not that easy however, since you will get a decent amount of games where you're top tier it might not be that much of an issue statistically.

 

Not to the T10 yet but from what I've seen the mantlet issue and the side armor being terrible are just magnified x10 (no pun intended).  The bigger gun again looks to need buffing, it's just a worse S. Conqueror and alternate T110 with the 120.

After just a few battles in the AMX 65t it looses more money than it makes all the time - without silver ammo! WTH.

The AMC 65t is utterly useless and outclassed in every way with no redeeming capability. Pathetic armor, sloppy guns with poor pen and wacky accuracy and outrageous ammo cost on the top two guns, slow turret traverse, poor visibility, slow as a slug, large as a house, slow traverse, "top" turret is huge with weakspots right up front - the base turret is actually better. On top of that its pathetic damage dealing compared to the rate at which it takes damage means it is a credit suck. Seriously what were you guys thinking. Its outclassed by t7 mediums let alone t8-10 it faces. You need to redo this thing from scratch unless you intended this as a barrier tank to t9 and t10.
