    ELC AMX and the Patch 9.18 (It's still a good tank)

    They could've done this for more than just the French tech tree, although it's as though they redesigned the role of light tanks to be less "scouty" to be more (in)consistent damage dealers. On one hand, they're more effective at dealing consistent damage (I've only played the Frenchies), but less able to scout. effectively against higher tier meds.

    Should've just moved it to tier 6 and called it good. It was already balanced to see tier 8s anyways...

    ELC AMX and the Patch 9.18 (It's still a good tank)

    You quoted me... comparing the old ELC AMX bis to its current nerfed state post 9.18 (the purpose of this thread). It has always been a tier 5, it just lost its scout MM so the highest it can see is tier 7 (hence my confusion about you supposedly getting YOLO'd by a tier 5 tank in a tier 9 tank).

    ELC AMX and the Patch 9.18 (It's still a good tank)

    We're discussing the ELC AMX, a tier 5 which will never see the 257. Is it possible you're thinking about the ELC Even 90?

    ELC AMX and the Patch 9.18 (It's still a good tank)

    Patch 9.18 killed the ELC. It took severe nerfs in mobility, firepower, and survivability in exchange for better gun handling and the potential to use a completely ineffective gun on a fully traversable turret.

    The ARL 44 - Actually Trash

    Yeah, the armor values didn't change but the angle was decreased, nerfing the effective armor but ~20-30mm, IIRC. I'm having a hard time finding specific numbers, though. I think the UFP was 45 degrees and now is closer to 40.

    The ARL 44 - Actually Trash

    The ARL was actually better pre-HD model, which heavily nerfed its hull armor to the current state it is now. 105 with liberal goldspam is highly recommended.
  10. I'm a tomato again after a 3+ month break. Even the KV2 let me down yesterday...

      You were aiming your shots, weren't you?

      @SaintLaurentius I think you're right! My mistake!

    The Minion Consortium Wants You

    Bless 'em, they're trying. Mostly platoons and the like at this point (although I think they'd like to resume some form of organized training), and they're at about 40 active members IIRC.

    Renault G1 or the G1R and oh my goddess, what have they done...

    Whoopee, you no longer fight tier 8s so there goes 20% of your hp! Let's not forget that you only had 400 do begin with, now anything packing a 100mm or higher has a reasonable chance to oneshot you with a moderately high roll. For reference, you have only 20 more hp than the AMX 40 at tier four, and 280 less than the AMX 12t at tier 6. There's a lack of consistent hp scaling that means that the ELC is seriously at a disadvantage compared to light tanks in other tiers. A hp nerf by itself isn't so bad, but the ELC was heavily nerfed in all three major areas: survivability, mobility, and damage capability. Simply put, it's a shadow of its former self.

    Renault G1 or the G1R and oh my goddess, what have they done...

    @Assassin7 I haven't touched my ELC since the LT rebalance, except for one training room battle. -Mobility has been nerfed (mostly acceleration) -Hp got nerfed (lol it's 320 now, IIRC- say hello to getting oneshot by 122s 100% of the time instead of 50%) -Both guns are weak choices, you either get a 75mm with 129 gold pen and 110 alpha (although you do get a rotating turret) or a nerfed 90mm with even less dpm than before and 120/170 pen. Workable, sure, but it's more like a TD with a LT gun instead of a LT with a TD gun. -You maintain your VR and camo, which is nice, but in return you sacrifice the fun factor that was zooming around the maps, giggling like a 12-yr old. I wish that WG had simply up-tiered the ELC bis and called it a day. Also, if anyone actually knows where to shoot a STRV frontally with a <120mm gun (w/o HEAT), I'd love to know. Hours of staring at tanks.gg has yet to provide more than a couple pixels worth aiming at.

    Better players than me can make it work, but I'm loathe to take it out in a corridor meta combined with STRV's that it's 120 can't overmatch. I'll also admit to not being in touch with the competitive landscape, other than seeing posts with 10 Obj. 268V4's per side.
