im very new to wot (~200 battles) 

ive found that the best way to use the valentine is as a 2nd line suport vehicle. It usually works well at close range it u fire the first shot using the t5 gun option the problem is that once I shoot im usually spotted and have 2 wait 9 seconds before firing. From there the next tank in line usually tears me up my my armor at about 0.

 

any suggestions?

make sure you reverse behind the bush far enough until you cant see through it and then fire.

TD's (Tank Destroyers) in general don't play too well as front line vehicles.  The Valentine AT's hull is the Valentine's, and fairly well armoured (60mm all round), but the gun shield  and the elevated sides are very thin.  Being open, it's also very, very vulnerable to HE (High Explosive) shells.  With only 170 health, an M2 medium with the short 75mm can take you out with one shot firing HE.  You're best off finding a spot back a bit, with some cover, like a bush or two.  You'll last longer, which should let you shoot more.  For that reason, I tend to prefer the 6 pounder, due to better accuracy at range, and the capacity to pen most things normally with the AP and if it can't, there's the APCR, but it's up to you.

The gun always kills in one shot. If I can get the first shot I’m good. However at long range your target has to be perfectly still to accurately shoot it. Even then it has a weird arc, it takes forever to reach anything beyond 200m:justwait:

Use the 3.7 in gun for high alpha and medium ranged engagements but if you are planning on sniping you should probably use the 6pdr.

if you are going to play td's with regularity, make sure you are familiar with the spotting mechanics and the camo mechanics.    Without this knowledge, you are just shooting and hoping that you dont become a priority target.   With this knowledge, you will fire from stealth and never be seen (even after you shoot) !!

I understand the use of buildings and bushes but I’m am trying to save coins right now and I don’t want to use equipment that will cost me. I have been very successful in sniping with my other tds but the valentine at seems to be an exception ( at least with the gun a use with it). I just can’t guve up that DAMAGE. It’s alway a one shot. Guess I just need to get used to moving allot?

Moving around is only useful if you get spotted if your not currently spotted you don't really have no reason to move unless you cant shoot anything
