Which way to go when I get enough XP grinding the BC 12t?    The 13-90 seems like it may be better?

The B-C 25t. is a better light tank than the 13 105, and the B-C 25t. AP is a better tier 9 light tank than the AMX 13 90.

 

Without even being light tanks.

I  too have wondered but in terms of a medium i have hated the light tank grind in french they feel so under whelming. i prefer medium like Leo and  Centurion. but in french i am close either one and been debating which one dump  my  exp on. AMX 30 or bc.

Never played the Batchat AP as I played that line back when the Lorraine was in the tech tree as a tier 9. That said I'd obviously have to say the 13 90 since thats the only one of the two that I've played.

 

I'm still a little butthurt over how WG has screwed up tank stats when it comes to replacement tanks. I've never played the BatAP but since it replaced the Lorraine it shows my Lorraine stats under the BatAP.

​I would grind all 3 tanks before leaving the Tier VIII behind! But after you've ground out all 3... which do you prefer to play, lights or mediums?

The 1390 is a good tank, but don't waste your time or sliver getting the 13 105.   The gun is trash accuracy is bad and has a huge pen drop off, and it turns like a brick.  The only time its decent is end game and you can clean up hurt tanks at close range

I’ve played the 1390, 13105, and the BC25tAP. Out of those, I personally like the 1390 the most.
However, I’m pretty sure that when I finally unlock and start playing the BC25t, I’ll probably like that one more out of the 4.

I adore light tanks.  There, the obvious is out of the way.

 

I loved the 1390 back when it was a tier 8, and everyone hated it due to troll gun handling and 'bad penetration'.  I did the batchat grind way back when the tier 9 was the big lorry, which I also actually liked despite it being unpopular.

 

I do not play my Batchat very often these days.  Yes, in clanwars it is more 'meta' than the 13 105 due to the frenzied way that called/pushed battles work, the higher burst damage is more valuable.

 

for me, I have a different mindset when I play LTs.  I am "not responsible for carrying" is how my internal gears are wound.  And thus, while I do ok in the Batchat in pub battles, I am rarely actually relaxed when I play it.  I have this notion that in a medium tank I am responsible for doing my part and more - which combined with me being easily triggered on the numerous garbage brawling maps makes it just not very entertaining.

 

I have almost 1800 battles in the 1390.  probably 1500 were from tier 8 days.  it's even sweeter now.

 

I have played the 13 105 on common test every iteration that it's been out and find myself much more relaxed and enjoying pub battles in it, than the batchat.  I frequently early clip in auto loaders that have large drums, and the down time of clipping in the batchat vs almost half of that in the 13 105 to me makes the 13 105 more flexible.  I have hit 7k dmg games in the 13 105, and hit roughly 14k assist in it in that chaotic environment.

 

I have the 13 105 in my garage, fully kitted out, with camo, but do not have a spare crew for it, and I adore my 13 90 so much that I just keep playing it - for now.

 

oh, and even though in my opinion they ruined the character of the Amx 30, and 30B with the changes they made to them, I do also enjoy taking them out now and again.

I'm not doing too bad in the BC12t, at a 50% WR and 788 WN8.  I have a hard time being patient at start of games so I end up taking shots and getting pounded.

 

The 13-57 is way fun and I'm at 63% WR and 1161 WN8 in it.

The 13 90 is actually a supreme fighting machine, and it damn near perfect at tier 9 IMHO (and many others as well).  It is a keeper for sure.

I may just get the 13-90 then.  No hurry to get to Tier 10 on either line.

I'm a fan of both those tanks as well (and light tanks in general).

I have them both.  But I reckon the Bat-Chat first.

If only one, get the AMX 13 line.  Bc25t is really kind of overshadowed by the T50/51.  It still has its "niche", but the TVP just has so much better reload, gun handling and intraclip dump.

Not saying they're bad.

 

I'm saying the B-C tier 9 and 10 are just plain old superior to the lights.

I guess you never played the BatAP which is worse than the tier 9 Lorraine in every way except its size.

Wow, that's a poor-quality T-90 model. Who would want their game of World of Tanks to even look like GTA SA:MP modded? Also, it's so puny compared to an actual T-90 which is a fat, cumbersome beast.
