Wrong.
In tier 3: You're the beast. You spot everyone, you kill everyone and you can even take a hit at times. Some maps can be troublesome, but it shouldn't be impossible to achieve ~90% winrate in tier 3 battles only. Solo that is.

In tier 4: You need to concentrate a bit. You can pen nearly every tank from side/rear and a lot of low armor tanks from front, but some tanks you can't pen at all. If you try to challenge the wrong tank instead of just spotting it and letting others to deal with it, you're likely to die without doing any damage.

In tier 5: You're an effective scout. You can take out arties very well, spot biggest targets and take out some lower tier tanks. Some games you can carry, but some are completely impossible without an able team.

Most important is to recognize your role in the beginning of each battle and to know which tanks to engage and which not. Remember, if you can't penetrate the enemy and can't run away, you can nearly always track it, do doughnuts around the target and let others do the damage.

Good advice for people who struggle with higher tier battles. And still you're getting negrepped for it, let me fix that up.

It can be challenging to drive in tier 5 battles when you're used to hose enemies with bullets and killing enemies every few seconds. Scouting is not something you can really expect from a new player (since this is only tier 3) and is hard to learn.

this tank should be tier 4
Why? It will ruin all the fun.
I really don't see the point.

By the way - I should reach 250 games milestone with it  :smile:

Love tier 5 games when you just pop whole 2cm clip in the ass of some unexpecting tier 5  :playing:

Only complaint I have is that if you hit even a tiny bump at full speed, you're pretty much fucked (I had one match where I charged forwards, did a barrel roll after clipping a small protruding bit of terrain and smashed my track.)

Yeah, that really is quite a problem sometimes. That's why i slapped enhanced suspension on it. My tracks rarely broke from a jump after that.

This. Suspension upgrade is really nice, since there are not many things that you can put to make it better. I run mine with Suspension, Vents and Optics.

I have those too, can't think of anything useful otherwise to put on this tank. I know some people like to put on a GLD, but it doesn't match the vehicles purposes imo.

Sold my afk Panther a few weeks ago and decided that instead of letting a good crew go to waste, i put it's commander and driver in the Pz.1c. Having deadeye is just nuts with the mauser gun. Already seeing an increase in critical hits.

Commander: BiA, deadeye, camo
Driver: BiA, clutch braking, offroad

Its incredibly strong in its iii's, not too shabby in iv's, and while the penetration can be an issue in v's its not a 1-trick-pony, can fall back on spotting/being a detrack nuisance

If they buffed the pen on the gun it would mess it up further for iii's and iv's

As a T82 user, the 1C does not need any buffs.

I love my Pz. 1 C. Although when in tier 5 matching its only good for scouting and killing artys. But otherwise its awesome. :great:

Love my Pz1c too, great fun, lethal to many lower tier tanks and higher tier arty.

It's speed is incredible and the machine gun clip awesome.

I'm up to tier 7 with an elite E25 and this is deffo staying in my garage!

This happened to me a few days ago:

 

http://wotreplays.co...hummus-crusader

 

Tier 5 game... a platoon of 3 Pz 1C's on my team ......  The silly buggers charged in and basically won the game for us.

It doesn't need a buff.
