Hi,

just wanted to say to all of you unhappy 12t drivers, don't despair, the 1375 is so much better and much more fun.

12t - almost every game with it was pain for me, the tank felt 'awkward' and as result i felt it as 'grind' tank, just tank to skip as fast as possible

1375 - suddenly things started to 'click' - the tank is more agile, turns better, accelerates better, has more HP, is more 'sturdy' ... simply this tank could be a keeper for me (even though the T-71 is still better tank)

i earn XP much more easily as a result - even thought the gun is same, i deal dmg much more easily - this is probably psychology, because you can risk more as you HP pool is bigger ..

 

Simply put - great change for me!

Only downside being it keeps the exact same gun as AMX 12t. tho i actually enjoy AMX 12t at the moment i dont get why people hate it.. its a tad slow but thats about it.

I've also been having lots of fun and good games with my 12t... it's just a tad too slow.

 

Can't wait for the 13 75 (although I guess the 13 90 is the one I will like even more).

I hated AMX 12t as much as I loved AMX 13 75. Those two compare just like AMX 50 120 and 50B... the same but just better in everything with most of the frustrating aspects gone.

12t has a bad camo/view range ratio which makes it detected by most enemies before it can spot them. AMX13 75 fixes this.

12t has horrible accuracy and aim speed. AMX13 75 fixes this.

12t has horrible acceleration, bad top speed for a light tank and bad traverse speed making it a very bad flanker. AMX13 75 fixes this.

12t has long drum reloads for its gun. AMX13 75 fixes this.

12t can die in one shot and certainly dies with two. AMX13 75 somewhat fixes this.

The only thing that is still as annoying is the same low ammo capacity.

Being honest? scouts are worthless and french scouts are some of the worst scouts i ever seen/played with. they turn like a hellcat, bleed speed while turning, sluggish speed. just play the new china meds and have more fun. they are better scouts and some even have more camo rating than amx 13 90. no joke.

AMX 12 t did feel quite horrible speed-wise after ELC, I admit, and for this matter I never liked it. However, as you said, AMX 13 75 fixes all of the flaws of its predecessor while AMX 13 90 begins to truly shine. The only drawback of AMX 13 90 is its very long reload time: 40 seconds without equipment and perks.

 

At the same time, AMX 13 75 is quite great! The key is to learn how to play this machine as it is not as nimble as some other Light Tanks out there. In fact, I tend to be a passive scout in AMX 13 75 at the start of the battle, then as the time progresses I select gaps in enemy positions, sneak in and start harassing enemies from behind while my team mates are shooting at them. French Light Tanks are not really scouts, but damage dealers, hence they have autoloaders. Even ELC AMX is not a scout per se, but a damage dealer, hence its powerful gun.

 

People should adapt to their tanks without generalisation. It is like comparing, say, T-54 with Lorraine 40 t: both are medium tanks, but should Lorraine 40 t decide to go face-to-face against T-54 it will be raped hard. I even saw skilled Batchats being killed by skilled T-54s. This being said, a Batchat will also lose to T-62A if it decides to engage one head on. They are simply meant for different tasks and should not be played the same way.

I really wonder why people complain so much about 12t. I love ELC and I'm keeping it as a (i feel) unique and fun tank anyway, but I've went through a lot of posts because I wanted to know what I should expect from the next tank. Almost everyone I've seen complained about 12t and it made me NOT buy it, so I've basically froze my french light line (and I was/am fine with it, because as I said -I really enjoy ELC). Yesterday I've finally decided to see how bad 12t is, so I've bought it, free xped the gun right away and went in for the battle/s. Result? So far 11 games (I know, still a small pool of info, but it also means I didn't have too much time to learn the tank, eh?), 64% win rate, decent (maybe not great, but FAR from terrible in my book) dmg/kill/xp ratios. My last (11th) game? Matched with tier IX (as a tier VI-flamed-and-hated-by-everyone-scout, let me remind you), top xp, top dmg in the game.

Like... really. I'm by no way trying to brag or anything like that, but I'm just trying to show (to people that will -just like me- search through the forum to get some info about 12t before buying it) that while some may strugle with it, 12t is NOT a terrible tank. Use your head, don't suicide scout and you'll be fine with it. Don't be afraid to proceed to it from ELC, but remember it has different playstyle.

 

tl;dr 12t is NOT terrible.

Why I brought ELC? Because I mentioned that reading other people's opinion made me not buy 12t for quite some time and I felt kind of obligated to mention that I'm leaving ELC in my garage anyway, because it's awesome. I don't know, that was just some random thought process, but still, that wasn't the main point of the post.

Im up to amx 13 75. not that great. in fact its horrible compared to T71. in all aspects. amx 13 75 itself is a decent tank tho but nothing compared to T71. needs some balanceing really.
