I think the LPTA is next on my list.  Should I stock up on Kleenex?

You'll either gotta work hard for solo-pub win or go unicum style and platoon with 2x Obj430 then come back to forums to berate mere mortals for struggling with it.

 

Its a bit hard to play "sniper" when some damn gokart can throw 500dmg in yer face in first minute of battle ;]

Thanks!

Good tank. Nice gun and good mobility. I prefer the Prototipo Standard B though.

I have been working my way through the Leo PTA and it has been a bit of an emotional rollercoaster. The highs are very high and the lows are pretty low.

When the gun works, it works. Good pen & Alpha, good shell velocity, but terrible stability and pretty much no depression over the rear of your tank. Imo it's more of a mobile TD than a Medium - It's a lightly-armored, decently-mobile firing platform. I actually enjoy playing it, in a way it feels like an Strv with no armor and a turret. (Sans a few degrees of gun depression) 

All of that said, I pretty much say this every time I play it on stream: Rule no 1 about pushing in a Leopard is: "Don't" - seriously, every time I push in this tank I have a bad time. Don't be the first guy out, you will get penned by virtually everything and die (gloriously) after getting 1 shot off.

I loved it at first, then I hated it, now I like it a lot but I'm worried my performance in the Leo 1 will be substantially worse so I'm taking my time with the grind. Silver lining will be the better accuracy at tier X.

Agreed. I like the tank as well, but it really is a glass cannon. Cent 7/1, Obj 430, Standard B can all outlast it in a hot and heavy battle.

The leopard PTA is a keeper. You might thing it is a worthless piece of crap like the indien pz. But, once you get it with all the modules it will be one of your favorite meds. The gun is accurate and with real German genes. This tank and the leopard 1 are the only German tech tree tanks which don't have biased Russian rng so, those .27-30 you see in the stats are their real stats (unlike the grille 15 or jage100)

I’m in the same boat. I’ve unlocked the LPTA via the HWK 12 but am awaiting the free XP sale before getting the tracks and gun at the very least before taking it out. I ground it in Blitz for the Leo 1, but there’s no comparison really as the Blitz maps were stupid small for a glass cannon like the LPTA.

Im very much looking forwards to it actually as it sorta reminds me of a German Charioteer in its play style.

Leo PTA is enjoyable to play at times.

^^^ This

 

I really really enjoyed the PTA and the Standard B is basically an auto-loading PTA

The Leo PTA is one of the best tanks I've played. High recommendation for it.

You know there was a sequel to the song, yes?

 

Thanks for the thoughts on the PTA, folks - it can't be worse than many others I've messed with.  :teethhappy:

 

And if it is - that's why alcohol was invented.

Leo PTA is BAE! Although it was one of the easier 3 marks I've done, so expectations are not very high. This means that, on average, people struggle a bit in it compared to other tier 9 meds. 

 

For me, it has a bit of a unique playstyle. I prefer second line support rather then sniping from the back for the most part. You can get away with being more agro then you would think if you are careful about it. I have a few replays with it, if you wanna seem them PM me.

Loved the tank. No armor but trades ok late game if you still have HP.  Excels as a sniper, but teammates will hassle you to be more aggressive and that typically doesn't end well.

...and that’s precisely why in game chat is selected, “off”.
