Since the Bat Chatillon 25t will be a tier 10 tank in the future, I have decided to try and grind for it before the patch.
It would save a lot of credits and exp to get the Bat Chatillon 25t before the patch than after.
Any other people doing the same?
I currently have a fully upgraded AMX 13 75.
Also, there's no information about what patch it will arrive in, but I assume it will not be in the near future since WG have announced some other stuff too.
Any thoughts?

I had the same thoughts and am in the same position as yourself, im not sure if the new Tiers 10s will be in 7.5 or before or after the British, if its going to be before in 7.5 then it doesnt leave a huge amount of time.

Yeah, that's true.
I hope WG does in in the same way as the previous patches, where they gave players enough time to grind for the T34 and the Russian heavies.
Though if it's not enough time, we are still able to maybe get 1 tank higher that will eventually get a tier higher too.
So we basicly have nothing to lose as long as we have an AMX 12t or higher. :happy:

So yeah, my plans will basicly be: Grinding for the french med tree and seeing how far I get, with the ultimate goal, the Bat Chatillon 25t. :)

They will? :Smile_confused:
Where exactly did you find that info? :Smile_ohmy:

The 13 75 suits me well to be honest though. :)
Constantly getting a few nice kills in a row because of the lovely gun. :Smile_veryhappy:


I mostly just join a strong frenchie or a faster heavy like an IS-8 and support him with whatever troubles he encounters. Swarming with meds and frenchies is also a really nice thing to do with this thing. Just make sure you get in a fair group on the hills of Himmelsdorf or Prokhorovka and you wlll probably be able to dominate the enemy :)

Well its still rubbish at tier 9 its worth grinding for now obviously but this tank lost its main ability never liked it but i use it as a scout hybrid its good at spotting as it stands this is the only thing i have been using it for i still like to fight with other mediums but for me the enjoyment is gone :(.

All the good players ruined it for everyone else so now they nerfed it and made the bad players play it evern worse this is wrong to me just because some players are better does not mean they have to nerf it this just makes it worse on the bad players :(.

Venting helps sorry :).

I love the Bat Chat. Its a niche, a very special tank.
But be careful. Its not a brawler. Just be a sneaky bastard. Find lonely heavies, empty your clip and relocate fast.
Often you can just take two or three shots before you run.


Next top tier medium I am grinding for is T-54.  Guess I can brawl a little more with that.

Hello everybody,
please be so kind and give me an advice.
I really wanted to have Bat Chat. I've made it through up to Lorry. I really love AMX 13 90. I enjoyed every battle with it, even when we lost it. And with Sixth Sense perk its even more enjoyable now.
But now I came to Lorry...
And I'm puzzled what to do now. This tank with stock modules is just simply dreadful, can't stand it. Slow as KV, no armour, no damage, can't find anything good in it.
I believe with all the upgrades it might be great tank, but grinding almost 100k xp to have it maxed out, might be to much to me. And then another 178k to get Bat...
I'm really tempted to sell it and give up for good. But the devs announced major changes with french light/med tree, Lorry will be tier 9, maybe they will make it enjoyable?
Give me guys some advices, is that Bat really good that effort or maybe not?

Stick with it VirginMary.  Getting it maxxed out _IS_ a grind, but once you have the top engine, the tracks and the 100mm cannon it's a different beast.  I thought I had fun with the AMX-13's, but this is better!  Yes, it's then a long grind up the XP to get the BatMobile, but there's still time.... *looks hopeful*

Well, I had the AMX 13 90 elited for months, but I stopped there. Didn't have any particular interest in going further. But I decided to do it, for the same reasons as you: to avoid grinding a lot more later. So I bought the Lorraine, got the tracks, the first engine and the 90 mm gun. But, I'm not sure what to do from now: either go straight for the BatChat, or elite the Lorraine first (to make it more enjoyable). Thoughts?

I've also decided to grind the Bat-Chat, starting from the AMX 12t. Yet with about 1,5 months until the patch I might be able to get those 600k XP in time...

I'd elite it. Technically you don't need the last engine, but it really makes the Lorraine fly and the 100 mm gun gives it a nice (though expensive) punch.

I had the Lorraine for a while. But only got the second upgraded engine and 90 mm DCA gun.  With this I grinded for Bat Chat.
MM is good and its performs quite well. But its too big and I didnt like Lorraine that much. I also considered skipping it.

I also started to grind intensively for batchat after the announce of tier 10 td's and meds has been made. I like this special offerts from WG and since i'm playing seriously i missed only the T30/T110 exchange :).
Currently i'm at 13 90 and i need 75k exp to unlock lorraine. The grind with 13 90 is very enjoyable, but i read a lot of negative opinions about lorraine. In this moment i don't have a strategy regarding the skiped modules, i need to feel the tank :). I like a lot the french gameplay with autoloaders and batchat as tier 10 is a must for me. In few days we will get 7.4 and my grind to batchat until 7.5 will be tough ( i play without premium), but i allways make it to finish...i'm a runner :)

Good luck to all the grinders! Don't stop till you get batchat!

You want to grind starting from the AMX-12 towards the Batchat in about 1.5 months? That seems to me impossible. How do you manage this?...

i did the t1ht - t34 in 15 days, so it's totally possible.

Yeah I also got some T34 experience. And I hope that patch gets some delays. However, the last few times WG actually seems to deliver in time. Hmmm... Well, I can at least try. And anyhow I will skip the research cost of 1 tier regardless of how far I get.
