I complained a lot in the forums yesterday about how bad this tank looked. I based my comments on several reviews on Youtube and the general stats.

 

Anyway, I still bought the tank because I have some gift cards with large balances to use up.


 

Dang, my first game in it was probably the most fun I have ever had in this game. Got over 3.5K damage and 5 medals. My adrenaline levels were so high I could not play it again for a while.


 

I then played a second game. It wasn't as great as the first, but was still very good and lots of fun.


 

Maybe these were just a couple of lucky games, and the remaining games will be awful. However, I figured I owe WG in setting the record straight.

​Glad you came around. That's why I was putting up post after post yesterday about the ELC. The tank isn't that bad. It isn't going to carry 14 bots to victory in a Tier X game... and that's ok. A Tier VIII tank doesn't need to do that. 

The tank is hilarious to play and is definitely capable of helping the team win - even in a Tier X game.

Every time I see one in my 4005, I load HESH and one shot them at the very start just to ruin their game.

I think you could make an argument for this being the best passive scout at Tier 8, but for anything else, you could make an argument for it being the worst.

if you're old enough to have owned a porsche 914, or more recently a first gen miata... this thing is just like that. stats suck, but, just drive one... you cant help but love it when you drive it, despite is flaws.

 

getting the even 90 was just like that, sure, on paper is a pos.but then you drive it and youre like... wow, this thing is fun. Its not the t-50-2 with rapid fire autoloading laser guided nukes i was hoping for... but, im loving the lil focker so far anyway. Im not setting records, and until they buff the gun, its just meh... but, cant help but feel like its just fun enough for me to drive it alot anyway and smile alot between all the gun cursing i do.

I just laugh at all the people that say: why did buy that pos?.  3 minutes later i have 2k damage and still alive XD. most fun light tank ive ever played, next to the typa 64. But it would be nice if they did something with the reload. 28 secs for a 3 round clip for 660 average? thats just too low in my opinion.

According to my tin foil crystal ball, the first games are always enjoyable...

That's because mm tries to give you the easiest games possible at first then it hits the fan

I think after about 100 games or so (approximately) you can get a very solid judgement of a particular tank, probably less but just to give an idea. I'm sure the tank seems fun initially but when you get a bad run of maps and games that opinion will change dramatically and then that will become the norm. I haven't bought it and have stopped play altogether until this college semester is finished but i doubt i would buy it and i love light tanks. I don't think i would prefer it over the 13 57 for example.

My first game in it was on Ensk...We all hid in the field 75 meters from each other, unspotted.  The first guy to get impatient got assploded.

I had read all the negative reviews about this thing, but when I saw it's camo value yesterday, I figured why not.  I needed a French LT trainer, and I enjoy playing a passive scout.  

My first impression of the tank is that it's actually a blast to play.  I'd like to see either the alpha buffed, the reload time on the clip reduced, or another shell added to the clip, as that reload for 660 damage is fairly subpar, and it's a bit sluggish on the acceleration, but either way, this is a fun little tank to play.

I was playing Seigfried. I was in a bush and a TVP was within 20 meters of. me. He had no clue I was there until I started dumping the auto loader into his side. :)

You must enjoy pain then.   This tank isn't very fun.   Its a dog with an unreachable top speed, no armor, bad gun and crappy view range.

I saw a lot of them out last night.  Nothing stood out about them except their goofy look.
