Ever since they gave me a Leopard in Rampage Mode years ago I been set on getting one, slow going because reasons. Best way I feel these tanks play is like a fast Tiger II now even less armor. Been at 30 games so far in to the PTA and finally got the ACE. This tank is so good now, the HE rounds just make me insanely happy. Anyone else digging the newer Leopards?

Very nice, love my PTA.  Still haven't upgraded to Leopard.  The grind on PTA was horrible though.  Need the tracks/turret to make it shine

Absolutely love the PTA that I'm procrastinating going to the Leopard 1, even if I have it researched.

 

It was the first tank I two-marked - got to 89% then became cocky and now I'm back at 83% :hiding:

 

If you do take the plunge to Leopard 1 tell us how it went, I'm quite curious.

I absolutely loved the old PTA. I've tried out the updated version a few times, but it just doesn't feel the same. It's not bad by any means, but the old one was much more enjoyable.

 

Fun fact, the old PTA was almost identical to Standard B, without the auto-reloader. They even look the same. The update makes sense in that regard. After the Italian tech tree was introduced, there wasn't much reason to play PTA when you could go for Standard B.

Play a T10 only match with the Leopard...

Heavily based on the situation it is in... it can do well.

However I've noticed that many other T10 mediums are superior to the leopard 1, gaining more advantages.

 

Leopard's camo rating isn't good enough to compete well vs other 10 mediums.

Leopard's buffed alpha of 30 damage isn't nearly enough to make it worth while.

Leopard isn't as accurate as the maxed 0.25 suggests.

Leopard's massive lack of armor leaves you laughing out of joy for a lucky bounce.

Leopard's acceleration is garbage.

Leopard rarely reaches it's top speed of 70 km/h

Leopard still can't pen most russian turrets it meets.

 

I hate russian tanks and will not play them, German vehicles are my favorite, but the Leopard 1 is crapand is only fun against low tier'd tanks.

 

E50M is the only German medium worth owning.

I beg to differ:

- The Leo has pretty average camo, not great but not bad either

- Alpha is alpha, a support tank like the Leo also benefits disproportionately from higher alpha

- It's just as inaccurate as its accuracy value suggests, just like every other tank in the game. If you mean soft stats, the Leo actually has rather good gun soft stats

- The turret can miracle bounce surprisingly often, especially when you properly minimize your exposure

- The Leo's combination of acceleration and ground resistances is very good among tier 10 mediums

- The Leo easily reaches 70 km/h in a straight line, e.g. I often reach it when switching flanks

- No tier 10 medium can reliably pen russian turrets, and in fact the Leo's APCR gold and low dispersion upon turret rotation make it one of the most reliable out of the tier 10 mediums

 

By no means am I trying to argue that the Leo is an amazing tank, or even that it's any better than the E50M, but I want to clarify that the Leo, and its entire line, for that matter, are some of the most skill-intensive tanks in the game, requiring a particularly good grasp of the game to play well.
