Ah, yes, a broken clubber tank that preys on view range and camo mechanics.  Poor little guys won't even know they've been lit before it murders them from camo.

Yep...for a Tier III, great pen, and reasonable Alpha and DPM.

400m base view range, 500m with binos, can easily be maxed with even optics + a few others (e.g. some combo of food, vents, BiA, recon, SitA).

That alone makes it broken at tier 3. Pure seal clubber.

It is funny to me that they keep pushing this tank but won't pull out the SU-76i.  This tank is 4x-5x more dangerous than the Ice Claw, yet they keep pushing it.  LOL.

Yes it has 400 meter view range and a good gun, But it's so slow, your not moving very far from cap. It makes the T95 seem fast.

Why would you move?  I just sit at spawn and kill half of the red team before I think about moving.

That's what your forced to do, Thing is, wait times are a pain in the rear at tier 4 and lower. Matches are one sided. IF I didn't already have it and wasn't a collector I would pass.

My su-76i is a danger to  everything it meets and they wont release it because its serbs TD and the last time they sold it.. people got fired.

I agree.  This is the most dangerous of the two.

Yeah i don't get it at all, they'll sell the other controversial low tiers, this tank, Sexton, the LEFH, but not the SU76i? what gives? :sceptic:

Balanced.  If it was really broken you'd see it played by 10 times more people.  It's LITERALLY the slowest tank in the game and it has undergone AT LEAST 2 stealth nerfs since its golden age.  Powerful yes, broken no.

I played one during the turkey shoot the other weekend and you're not kidding, it made the TOG II feel fast.

It's power is adequately balanced by its total lack of flexibility.  You CAN'T take part in the mop up phase of games.  ALL that turkey shoot damage goes to other players.  The best games you are ever likely to have in this tank are when your team loses - and that just damages the fun factor.

How is this different from clubbers who play an M2 Stuart at tier 2 and bounce the hail of machine gun ammo of 2/3 of the guns at that tier?  But is anyone calling the M2 broken?  Just because you can SEE the M2 and ENGAGE the M2 doesn't mean you can pen it.  We ALL have rationalizations - myself included - but truly 80% or more of the people playing this game have the patience to CRAWL around in the FCM 36Pak40 - and that alone balances it.  Truly broken tanks are those that have armor, firepower, AND mobility/flexibility - and they are almost exclusively Russian.  The FCM has no armor - even the lowliest machine gun pens it.  It DOES possess GREAT firepower.  But what it gains in camo it loses far more in mobility.  And camo is meaningless when the game TELLS you where a shot came from and the FCM is ENORMOUS.

And I am telling you that the sale of the Pak40 proves that there's no such thing as seal clubbing in WoT.  What "new player" is forking out $30 for a Tier 3 tank?  Answer: NONE (except re-rolls).

It's a good thing that my Su-76I is ready to counter yours. It was only sold once for 2 hours. Let's not make it sound like we knew it was being pulled.I don't think anyone was fired. We got lucky.

I bought the mid package with a coupon so spent $35. You figure that is like $12 for 30 days premium time, $20 in gold, and the vehicle only costs a few dollars. You add to that the equipment provided and it is a nice deal. Besides the only other French vehicle I have is the premium M10 RBFM from the event a few months back. Will be nice to have something else for that crew to use. 

The packages like this are a good deal for savvy customers and new players with some cash. I really like the $12 packages of 30 days of premium time with a free low tier tank but this time around it was the T29 and I have it. I passed because the tank isn't worth the credit compensation, seems it has little to no value in this regard.
