    I think it will be fine. Played well, it's a pretty OP tank. The nerf just means you'll have to fire some gold. As is now, it's standard rounds can pen anything it faces (170 I think?) It might be fun to switch guns on occasion for the different gameplay. I've got a great crew in it now. Not a fan of any other French tank. So a bad nerf would really kill that investment for me. Hope it stays as predicted..

    T71 CMCD, US Premium Light tank

    Any updates on this? The T71 has always been a favourite of mine. Would love a premium version to use. As a light tank player, I'd be pretty happy that my two favourite light tanks are premium tier 7 and 8 (along with the Bulldog GF)

    Optics with good crew skills (SA, BiA), otherwise binocs. vents/rammer are a good choice.

    M56 Scorpion Review

    Picked one up last night. I like it a lot! It works well for me. My two other most played tanks are the T67 and ELC AMX. It has qualities shared by both. Good Sniper. Great gun (no need for gold. AP and HE round are excellent, and accuracy for weak spots.) Small target and excellent gun depression. When you can't bush snipe, hill snipe. Means it has a roll on almost all maps. Stalingrad and Ensk are still a challenge though. Good credit maker. Get to put my awesome T67 crew in it. Very happy so far best Premium I've ever played. Fits my playstyle perfectly.

    +1 for www.tazillon.net I'd say weather you go 5cm or 3cm on the Luchs or Leopard is dependant on playstyle and/or $$. I like the 5cm on the leopard for it's versitility, but swap in the 3cm when I'm low on $$. I usually stick with the 3cm on the Luchs because it's so OP/fun to clip out tanks when you get a low teir battle. It's crazy strong against teir 3s and 4s. Have fun the Germain light line is one of my favourite lines. Though personally my favourite tanks in the game are the T71 and the ELC AMX.

    Scouting: Where to Start? by TheMarine0341

    I usually like Auto Fire Extinguishers on my scouts. Scouts usually don't need the extra engine power. Some really benefit from food though. So saving up and buying when it goes half off can be a good idea. I pretty much always run food on my ELC.

    Thanks! And thanks again for going through the effort. That's a lot of work! I was hoping you had an easier way.

    You mentioned that you found a good simple way to upload to YouTube. What did you end up finding?

    Personally, I drop the rammer for vents. This tank needs the extra bonus to vision and gun handling. I also use food and have BiA. (If you don't have food and BiA, I'd probably stick with the rammer).

    Ru 251 Appreciation Thread

    I only found the Auful Panther a bad grind. Even that one isn't so bad. I found it better using the 10.5 gun. (less exposure, and big damage on all the new glass cannon tanks).

    T67 (formerly T49) Appreciation Thread

    The T67 can pen any tank it faces (frontally with premium ammo). But I see your point. Lately I've been playing the T71. Similar play style. More challenging with the higher teirs, but also more rewards.

    T71 Replays by Map

    It's great to have them up there. I've been watching them on my phone. Handy to think about improving your gameplay just about anywhere.

    Sadly I'm stuck with low FPS. I average around 15. I'm running on an old laptop that is about as optimized as I can get it. It does hurt the gameplay though. FPS tend to drop when you need them the most. Glad you're getting some games up on YouTube. Already subscribed.

    T71 Replays by Map

    Thanks for the detailed reply! I took your recomendation on equipment. I'm running with Cola to get my view range up until the skills are there. I have BiA, but no view range skills yet. (Just finished my 2nd skill yesterday). I've also got a lot of large first aid and repair from the last time they were on sale. I've spent the weekend trying to put these points into practice. My WR and WN8 for the T71 are way better as a result (Thank You). I still need to work on relocating to get a better penetrating shot. I find I still bounce way more often than in your replays. I'm also having to shift my playstyle to be more aggressive denying spots/locations to the enemy. (Steap learning curve here. I often push to far as I'm learning. I'm used to playing much more defensively and it's hard to abandon those habbits), What I have noticed from all of this: With this playstyle you are much less limited by the maps. I use to see a map load and know what 'spot' I like to go too. Now I'm trying to be much more flexible. Any bush or ridge might do depending on how things are going. Still a work in progress for me. But I'm having a blast with this tank. It may even dethrown the ELC or T67 as my favourite tank. This is probably my best replay after trying this weekend to put these points into practice: http://wotreplays.com/site/1731634#self

    T71 Replays by Map

    I've watched all your replays, and definitely picked up a lot. A few things that I noticed to change in my gameplay. (Please correct me if I'm wrong). Equipment: Change Binocs for Optics. The amount of movement/aggressive play doesn't seem to allow Binocs to kick in often enough. Currently using Vents instead of GLD. Probably going to keep it that way and save the gold (much of a difference?) About the Large repair kit. Is it worth it when not taking a fire extinguisher? I noticed when you did catch fire on Westfield, it was handy to fix all the hurt modules. I usually run with small first aid, small repair, small fuel. Gameplay: You take much more aggressive spots than I have in the past. What I notice, is that instead of just giving good spots to your team, it denys good spots for the enemy team. (Especially on Lakeville, Malinovka, Swamp, Westfield) It looks like you often shoot without aiming all the way and still hit most shots. I've always fully aimed, but it doesn't seem that I need to and can limit exposure more. Know when you can pen. I probably shoot way too often at the front of tanks. I've noticed you wait for a good side shot or spot instead if shooting at the front of a vehicle. Also noted that you rarely (if ever?) shot any of the 12 HEAT shells you carry. Learn tank reload times. You know exactly how many shots you can get off after someone shoots (seems to usually by 3). Pre-turning your tank for a faster getaway. I've got to do this more. I realized I'm lazy with it, and it gets you out of bad situations much faster. As far as more replays. It would be nice to see more on Scout-Unfriendly maps and the newer maps. Stalingrad was useful (I never know how to play that one). Though I get the impression on city maps, you're just taking your opportunities when you see them. Not much spotting to be done there. And you can't really deny a location to anyone in a scout on city maps. This has all been great to take in. I've always sucked in my T71. I don't think I ever really got the hang of that type of auto-loader. I've mostly done well in the Leopard, VK 28.01, ELC AMX, and now the RU 251. I'm looking forwar to giving the T71 another shot.
