It can not be, that a LIGHT! Tank costs mpore repair then a bigger tank, end of line or not... and what end of line, as a T5 Tank???  give him a T10 cannon and we can talk about the repaircosts...  

*M24 isn't a tank for earn money, but if you play it good, you can earn a lot of money.*

tell me how???? what will you kill??   No... it is neccessary to change the costs, there are many better scouttanks then the Chaffee now.

It can kill things. Big things. Pick your targets wisely and you can solo Löwes among others

the repair of a destroyed T26E4 costs about 8800 credits. but the Chaffee costs about 10000 credits......

You can't compare a premium tank they are known for low repair costs so they make profits.

The Chaffee repair costs are fine. Some tanks (like the dedicated scouts of tier 5 - Chaffee, VK2801, T-50-2) are meant to be played by experienced players who wont have a problem with the costs since they almost every battle end up with some profits (i play it without premium and i make around 8-10k profits each battle). Just because it is a special tank does not mean it's something wrong with it.  :smile:

T-21 and T-71 should be after the chaffee (and skip that stupid M7) ...
i play way less my chaffee and t-50 2, because of the repair bill..
Exactly... It took me 3200 games before I even saw Chaffee in a match. Do you go to work if your travel bill is more expensive than your sallary? Add in the dead end in the techtree. I just got my Chaffee, seems fun to use, but I simply cant use it as much as I wanted.

No need to change its repairs costs anymore. I have played Chaffe on the test servers and I feel that compared to its counterparts of the same tier it is really a light tank with more aces up its sleeve than any other from its tier. Ask for a repair cost decrease and they will surely nerf it...

and the reason for that is, because its a end of line tank from the "old" scout line.

Its basically a T6 scout with an ugly MM (up to battle tier 12) and the hp of a T5 scout. Its the only remaining T5 end of line scout, the other wehere the VK28 and the T50-2, both get altered and there stats adjusted and are now considerably  worse. Same will happen to the Chaffee.

They will.

It's the only end-of-line scout left that needs to be 'rebalanced' aka removed or nerfed to the ground.

No mention of changing the Chaffee in the 8.8 release postings.

because its not coming with 8.8 probably with 9.x.
They need more lights for this line. The chaffee probably will be a T6 then (losing its fraken turret) and will lead to the M41 which probably will lead to the T92.
Or they reduce everything one tier and chaffee will remain T5 and T92 will be T7 (as equal the the T71).
Similar to what they did to the german line, but still everything up in the air.

Either way Chaffee is not good against teir 10 games which is all I ever ended up in .. I dont mind spotting but when heavies seem to catch you up can one shot you and with the spotting mechanics Fooked up in this game I dont see it fair for the Chaffee to get such a match maker when theres better meds that can do just as good and quick and much much more powerfull .. BAT CHAT anyone ?!

But im sure they are getting rid of or chnaging the russian end of lines scouts which to me is utter cack teir 5 isnt end of line anymore we has teir 7 lights now .. so just chnage the mm for teir 5 so you dont see teir 9 or 10 battles ..

repair cost is ok, what bothers me more is its MM. When I look at charts at wiki it appears that its only tier 5 scout with such high MM value. Actualy it has comparable value with tier 7 lights. Question is why? Why all other dedicated scouts have better "easier" MM value?
Or are MM charts on wiki broken?

There used to be three scouts with theis MM but the German and Russian ones were "Fixed".  Chaffee can handle it's MM fine.  It would be a bit OP in Tier 6 and ludicrous in a Tier 5 battle.

+1 Seems valid to me. Why? Because on its accuracy on the move, IMO.

I think it's pretty OP multi role tank compared to tier 6 lights with the same MM or tier 6 mediums and it still sees a quite lot of tier 7 or tier 8 battles. Small income is price to pay for having a good chance to influence these low tier battles. Something like paying for gold ammo on regular tanks for better chance of victory. Play it for fun and just ignore it. I believe that other players loose even more money on tier 9-10.

apart from you usually dont see same MM battles with the Chaffee your normally in teir 9 10 battles at least I am .. :(

My Chaffee almost always make a profit, even after repair bills. As long as people shoot the stuff you spot you'll be fine. Some maps make this impossible but most have passive scout locations.

And to add to the insult, I just got team killed in Chaffee, half HP repair cost is 4500, and I got 1500 compensation... great system.

Has compensation ever worked? I've been rammed to death by a team mate and been fined and received no compensation.
