Call me crazy, but I'm actually hoping that the buffs won't hit live. They're completely unfounded, and will only leave the Leo in the dust. Instead of going with the "tweak slightly, adjust as needed" approach WG is starting from the ground up and changing almost everything about the tank.
Just started the grind for mine. Starting on the AMX 12t. So far I'm not a fan of the tank. I'm really not a fan of French lights in general. Just don't appeal to me at all and I don't have enough free xp to go straight to tier 9
