I would hate to see the Lorraine boosted to the level where the majority of the players will find it ok^^. At that time, this tank will become death incarnate in the hands of a good player, let alone a unicum.

 

Imagine that some above average player (around 2000 VN8), on this tank, as it is, has around 3100 VN8. Boost this tank and perhaps you will boost that player's VN8 to 5000 on the Lorri. In the following moment, those that now complain on the Lorraine as being poor, will flood the damn forums with tears about some Lorrin in some game took 10 kills and did 20k dmg... OMG OMG that is so OP!!

I love this tank, it plays like an upgraded 50 100, the key is to not be too aggressive to start wait or take a conservative forward position to help scout  and pick your moment rush out kill and rush back, I am no expert at this tank although I have had some good games and I can see how this can be a really strong tank, people must play it well as it took a massive score to get a mastery badge in it!  it has a game style that you don't get outside of the French lines, their speed 6 shot autoloaders give them a distinct style if you master it the game is fun.

 

if you try to take multiple full health enemy or people with more health then you can safely take down with a clip you'll die easily.

 

I will have elited this tank tonight and iam considering keeping it.

If you cant play lorraine you cant play also batchat.  These tanks dont like mistakes.

Well all french tanks have a bit higher skill threshold. Just see the battle development and slowly start taking ground with it, helping the weaker flank with your sniping, scare tactics, stuff like that. My advice. Not that it is always applicable. That's the way I tend to play it.

The same with armored targets? You can bully lower tier, but against T9 or T10, this tank is fecal.

Its a support tank and i supported foch and the wz 131 as much i could. Tracked the E75 and took him out.

Same will be with bchat. If your team is good you can rock. For carryng game its not that good.

 

I always fail with this tank when i am alone. Its good enough to flank and circle heavys.

Dont play it when you dont like it.  You can an always play in testserver and choose difrent tanks.

Worst long range support ever because it can't aim/pen weakspot. Bad close support, because you gonna take the hell of a beating to land your unreliable slow combo. Considering the contenders, the lorraines dagger is not sharp enough to justify the absence of shield. It desperatly needs the surprise attack. But big bright pink luminescent ninja fails hard.

Please stop comparing the batchat and the lorraine, you wanna pitch a silent camo ninja against its loud pink neon light clone. Winrates wise, the churchill gun pocking carrier and the arl v39 beat the lorraine. Yes, it is that low.
