Hi,


the repair of a destroyed T26E4 costs about 8800 credits, of a M4A3E2 Sherman Jumbo about 6600 credits, a M41 Arty about 1500 credits.  but the Chaffee costs about 10000 credits......
thats to much for this lighttank.  If it costs about 2500-3500 credits it will be okay...  Please fix the repaircosts of the M24 Chaffee.


thanks for your interest.

grettings, Shia

People are making the mistake of thinking the Chaffee is a tier 5. Just because it's technically in the tier 5 slot doesn't mean anything. It's got a gun of a tier 6 medium and the view range of tier 8 tanks and above. Who says it shouldn't have a tier 6 or tier 8 repair bill?

The emphasis on vehicle tier is largely misplaced - vehicle tier is simply a tool used to indicate appropriate battle tiers. But it's worth noting that the Chaffee is weighted as tier 6; at least according to the wiki.

Exactly. The chaffee is something special indeed, nothing about it is run-of-the-mill. That includes the repairs.

I think WG is about to make that line longer adding Walker bulldog and stuff so it will get hit by nerf hammer and tossed like normal tier6.

grettings, Shia
OP3 cost 10k to repair Tiger cost 10k if u lucky if not 14-15k
and as other say its a scout even if he dont have best spoting range and best radio in game..and best camo and best speed an mobility(what supose to have scout) its still scout..
PS:for low income its another stupid devs move not to play scouts

Yep. I would go for M24 for myself but we kinda expect this nerf so I decided not to get one.

I strongly suggest you get it ASAP if you were interested in the tank. Play it while you can.
Back before and around when the French tanks were added Chaffee was kind of an "end game" goal for me. French lights were added (and soon nerfed) and they were interesting too but didn't seem particularly better at the actual scouting aspect. I then went on long break from the game.
6 to 8 weeks ago I came back to find things as they are now: new tier 6-8 scouts, arty/camo/accuracy changes, t-50-2 removed, vk 28.01 changed/nerfed and Chaffee next on the chopping block. But it was likely that the USA tree wouldn't change until 2014. My reaction was to finish a 6th sense + camo crew and finally unlock M24 Chaffee to experience it in its old form and matchmaking.
I've been really glad to experience the responsiveness of this tank and I'm still a bit puzzled how the whole package feels just about sufficient in the high tier games. The nimbleness and only 9 extra average penetration somehow make a difference between heaven and earth compared to T21.
Despite Chaffee camo value being really bad since 8.6 it just performs as a scout. If they take away the top gun (a rumor) or nerf the mobility I'll be on the lookout for a tank that can imitate this playstyle. I'll really want to have one in my garage to go with the higher tier, more shooty light tanks (which tend to have less well rounded stats like gun depression).
Meanwhile, I expect to play 500+ Chaffee games before end of year unless my imminent T71 lures me away - but autoloaders don't have such persistent don't-ignore-me factor.

The closest comparison to the Chaffee for me was the premium type62. Not as good as the chaffee but it makes alot more money so it can balance out.
