lol there is no danger of the Crusader getting nerfed, it's an average tank, not a terrible tank but certainly not a good one.

 

I kinda agree with you on this point, i found the M7 better than the Crusader (perhaps it suits better to my gameplay). The thing is Crusader has an average gun but its mobility is more than good, it's way enough for a good player to carry games.

 

You can't call it OP but it can do nice things ... http://wotreplays.com/site/1042394#ensk-cael18-crusader

One strong Point in favour for the Crusader is ist light tanks Status, which helps him to Keep it hidden. The second Point is the 3 Crew Setup... This means, you Level your crerws really quick.

Am I the only one who feels strange, when I hit the cap of 50 km/h, going downhill (stated max speed of 44km/h) on my light tank with 30mm armor and I get passed by same tier mediums? This feels like a strange design choice, especially for a tank that dies to a single HE shell.

 

I love the gun depression in top tier battles :)

Yhea ... it took me quite a while to get used to that as well. But once you get to rough terrain, or start going uphill, you leave everybody behind you so it's oke to me.

The 45 kmph is fast enough for most work and you get to it very fast and stay on it even going up some hills, so in all it's pretty nimble. Just not much of a sprinter.

 

It also reverses fast enough to dodge HE shels from 250+ meters. (as in, you start reversing when they fire... and you'll only be splashed by the hit. Always keep perpendicular to your target for this reason)
