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.

 

​So kinda like the BC 12t then. Huh, weird.

The ELC Even is the ultimate passive scout. The reason so many reviewers hate this tank is because it's gun does suck and the current meta is to play light tanks as piss poor mediums. This tank plays remarkably similar to the old AMX ELC before it was nerfed into a piece of junk. Just like the ELC AMX the ELC Even is very unique in it's play style. You can hide and pepper people to death from medium range while you rack up the spotting damage. Then run away while laughing in a maniacal French accent. It definitely isn't a tank for most light tank players. In the right hands the tank is borderline OP.

once you fire your camo drops down to 10-15% depending on your crew, you're definitely going to be spotted if not by tanks near you by camo shredders

It's fun. But it's carry potential is horrible in this corridor infested meta.

 

This is the key issue with the tank. Otherwise, fun as hell.

Nothing wrong with the AC1 Sentinel. It's a good tank.

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.

 

So i decided to come back and play for the weekend, bought the even 90 and played maybe 10-15 game. It's ok, no where near as bad as made out but not what i would call a fun tank either. The aim time is the only thing that really bothered me. The reload itself with a good crew and food is about 26 seconds, for the amx105 with same crew its 25 and i play the 105 a lot. So not much difference there and the gun is far more accurate (just goes to show you how bad the 105's gun is really). It's not nippy but has a good top speed, at take off it's one of the slower light tanks. It's camo is good but i failed to get the fun factor. The 13 57 is fun the t71 can be fun, driving around thinking you are so tiny and have great camo doesn't really translate into fun. All in all it's not a bad tank just meh, if you get beyond the size and of how unusual it looks its just an average run of the mill tank with great camo but its fun factor ......it's ok i suppose.

The only good part is the armor around the MG.

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

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 got a tier 10 match in my second game with it.

$30 turned me off. 
I guess if I wasn't currently looking at an eternity in the B-C 12t, maybe it would seem worth it.

edit: ....and then I bought it. sigh. so fun! ...
