Get to know this feisty little French tank in our video review.  Don’t be fooled by its appearance – It may be small, but in the hands of a good player it’s as deadly as any tank out there.

That would be nice. They will probably make some videos, after 8.1 is released.

Having played and hated it, until the double money weekend where I finally got to grips on how to play this tank destroyer, the most important part of the video is when it say the the ELC AMX is not a scout.

But it counts as a light tank and get the match making of one, which is fine once you have the top gun because it is one of the most lethal guns in game and definitely the fastest gun platform.

ELC is a shame just like SU 101(and yes they are calling it a destroyer). How can tier eight destroyer get lower penetration and lower potential damage than IS 3. WG bullet in tha head for making those ridiculous vehicles. Over and out

I have to defend one of my favorite tanks!  :Smile_Default:

ELC as a scout is a great tank for spotting with which you will allow your teammates to snipe at enemy while behind bushes. You will build up your damage upon spotting and also easily evade any shells that enemy throws at you. It's gun, maneuverability and a really low height of the tank are quite a massive bonuses.. with them you can "troll" almost any tank in the game and by that, again, allow your allies to shoot at them too while you are having your fun  :Smile_trollface-3:

The radio and view range are not the very best, yeah.. that's shame.. but if they were, it would be a monster among scouts and that wouldn't be fair, would it? :P


Even dough its already a monster for me.. it can always make me happy and also earn some money too. Something similar like kv-2 with its troll device :3

This move was more like a propaganda than a guide or review.
Never heard anyone claiming ECL AMX is a weak tank but many players saying it is OP. The only thing OP may be it's size (hobbits are drivers?).
Movie starts with convincing us it's bad but not as it seems. Noone every doubt that so don't put us into fake conclusion that many players thought that way.
And that part about premium ammo: "With this elc has 238 pen and can even harm might maus."
This is like: "We know what gives premium ammo, we know it enables to pen anything and we don't care you don't like it. It's here to stay, deal with it - we even start to make tutorials"
So elc got 12 mm armor, no difference for him if he is going to be shooted by gold ammo or not, effect is the same but elc shooting gold makes a huge difference. This is not right.

Additional note: stay away from HE cannons and tanks that have a high chance to have one.

also facehugging works well on lone heavys (especially german ones, due to high gun placement)

It's not entirely correct to compare ELC to the other tier 5 lights because the other tier 5 are actually tier 6 in match making value and therefore obviously better in the hit points. The match making of ELC is more like the tier 4 lights of other nations with the highest battle tier being 9 and since the French tier 4 is a rubber duck ELC is the scout. The hit points are comparable with the other tier 4 lights, too. They just ignored this whole tier 5 scouts being actually tier 6 thing which baffles me.

Watching the video without audio was like watching a clueless kid playing WoT for the first time. Always doing stupid things and always dying.

Why WG keeps making these silly videos...i don't know. They don't teach anything usefull anyway. There is no standard tactic. Battles are different almost every time and you have to adapt.

Welcome to the World of Wargaming. This is how things work around here.

Love my ELC, shoot and run or scout are both great tactics for this give-away tank.

205 matches and 68% winratio...

all i basically do is hit and run...it confuses the enemy lets them rage after you which, if you have a good team, he will soon regret^^
it also seems to be a lot more resistent to higher jumps...in my t50-2 i often take track damage
