Wow. Well, for me, it's a little heart warming knowing that there actually are worse players than me, which I didn't think was possible. Even if a only little bit worse.

I dislike this tank. It's small and nimble, that's true, and it has a decent gun.
The problem, as I see it, is that whenever the enemy hits me - it doesn't matter which gun they use - I'm tracked.
It's not that I get tracked often, it's that every game where I do not survive, the first hit takes my tracks, and the second and third reduce my HP to 0.

Practically speaking, this thing has 1HP, because whenever anything hits it, it's going to stop and -unless the enemy has a very bug gun with long reload and is all alone- my ELC won't start moving again.

im new to the tank, but thanks for the comments.

A question if i may though, if this is a t5 tank, why can it only meet in battles, tanks of t6->t9, surely its a t6 tank?

It has a special matchmaking, it gets put into higher tier battles to act as a scout. Which is perfectly fine if you understand all the mechanics etc. Not recommended for new players though!

I'm going to sell my China tier I tank, buy back the ELC amx and start training a crew in it, to use in the lorraine when I get to that. ( Keeping both 13 90 and going for batchat )
Because of the elite status and only 2 crewmembers, each 2 battles your play count as 3 battles played for the two crewmembers. Playing only daily doubles and week ends when x2 crew training is in effect, it should give me a 6th sence commander in a few months.

If you drove different light tanks and u had succes in it, and learnt camo/6th sense tactics, than first drive on it with decent crew nad top modules is like "wow, this thing is cool". After couple hundred battles u still love it. I have now 6th sense comander, cluth braking driver, 90% camo both and will train BiA as 3 perk. The tank performs awesome, gives loads of fun. It is probably hardest to hit tank in game. Its overall profile is lower than some other lights tracks. And the camo value makes it almost invisible.  Deffinetely a keaper for me

EDIT: I had it maxed from beggining, since almost always I keep fre xp for new tank. When I bought it, I already maxed it, bought top modules ( vents, rammer, egld ) and retrained crew from premium french arty for gold at discount price, so I dont know how it drives on stock.

Also, there are guys to drive this tank with 75 mm gun, because its ROF gives advantage in arty killing. For me it is odd tactic, because you can outmanouver any arty till reloading, and 90 mm pen and alpha is probably best among tier 5 scouts.

Last night, after taking on board this threads comments and trying to emulate it, my success went from a survival rate of probably 25% to probably 90% and had such a laugh.   The times i did lose in it where down to me being stupid, one was against T9 tanks on the map with the raised railway line.  I tried to cut across the road from a standing start and got killed, i should have taken a run up to cross the road, building momentum.   The other time was when i saw arty, and had to stop to get my shot off...first shot didnt kill so i waited for second shot, i didnt have enough time before i was one-shotted!

thanks guys

BTW, I made a guide to the ELC and posted it on page 3 of Ding760's guide contest thread. Do you want me to post it here too?

Just had 2 losses in a row. Bot with tier 6 tanks as top tier. First game I did 1339 DMG, the next best tank in our team did 379. *sigh*

Sorry, just had to went a little. But back on track - this tank is incredibly fun to battle in. You just have to be... careful.

Good question, I don't see how ANY of our posts deserve 3-6 neg rep.

Whoever it is: Take your alts and go troll somewhere else please.

@Phot0
Most players with 7 battles don't come to the forums WITH VALID KNOWLEDGE so I asumed that you used an alt just to troll the forums unpunished. The fact that your new "main" account still have 7 battles after a week but another 30 posts just make me more suspicious.
I will drop my suspicion if you give me a valid reason for why you don't want a guide in a guide thread.

ELC AMX ALL THE WAY! Even when I dont play it as a scout I think its one of the best scouts in tha game.

Best way of paying it, is just sniping with that 90mm gun when u have your crew at 80%+ <beast>
