after reading about the nerfed t50 a few updates ago,  I bought it recently and it still surpises me.  Got good WR with it, and if you get to learn it, it is not that bad. Crew is still under 90% so it only can improve more.

I remember having it back in its glory days... simply an amazing tank. But personaly i sold it in disgust after playing one game in it after it got nerfed into "oblivion" if you may... It felt SO sluggish after it lost its 500hp engine (heck, even its 440hp engine...) simply 'cause i was used to its uber amazing power/weight ratio (altho now that i check again its still not that teribble...). I remember running circles around a lone IS-3 for like 2-3 minuites struggling to pen its rear armor until help arrived. All in all it was just an epic little tank and im happy you're enjoying it nowadays. But hey, atleast its crew didnt go to waste, they found refuge in my SU-85B wich was accualy quite convenient 'cause i already had sixth sense and camo at about 70-75-ish %.

You will never know how good it used to be. It was a little pocket rocket, sliding around corners. I used to have it only for active scouting, zipping trough the enemy and trying not to get shoot. My WR in it was never that good, but man it was fun.

Used to be my favourite tank.  Although the T-50-2 was faster the change in physics seemed to work against it.  The T-50 seemed to benefit from the new physics.  You could drift round corners.  I'd approach an enemy sticking a round into him, pass him then stop behind, skidding the tank around bringing the gun to bear all the sooner for the coup de grace.   I have 20 Pascucci's medals, most of which were earned in the T-50.

Was a super scout now is super crap, is bad as active scout because is slow and not very mobile, is horrible pasive scout because has low vision range and is bad damage dealer/fighting scout because gun is nothing special.

 

A scout inferior in mobility to practically all tier 6-7 meds, with lower vision range and a gun unable to face them... expect new scouts reduce a lot his MM but some rebalance in tier 4 scouts is needed (but after look the M5 assasination i dont have a lot faith).

I don't understand the T-50 nerfs, why did they cripple it so badly?

 

It never had the best view range, but the speed made up for that, and the gun wasn't the rapid fire needle of the T-50-2 and yet there are now higher tier lights that have the guns of equal tier meds.

What it had was incredible acceleration, great top speed and very good maneuverability. It was small and hard to hit.

Because game in last patches simple kills active scouts, the best use for a scout now is pasive scouting or short active scouting doing local tactical scout for 1st wave.

 

The T-50 is inferior in movility to even meds in tier 5 and many tier 6-7 meds simple can hunt you easy, add to this a low vision range and a not specially good gun and you have why is a joke scout, if i play it is to give LTTB a decent crew but nothing more (even MT-25 is superior to T-50 because at least has medium value as active and pasive scout).

 

The problem is that WG is not going to buff T-50 looks more like WG plan is nerf scouts in tier 4 to adapt all lines to new scouts tier 8... this and maybe reduce vision range in all classes to buff scouts in an indirect way.

It is worth pointing out that this tank was hit harder with the nerf hammer than any other tank I know.  Its main strength was it's speed and that was cut so much it is now practically useless.  Any "buff" would be nothing more than restoration of this tank's character.

As I said, if the gun was removed (like it has been...) then it would be little more than a speedy scout with no bite at all, as said it couldn't pen a kv-1 in the rear in the heat of a battle without premium ammo with the old gun.

 

For example the ELC is alot harder to hit, just bleeds speed more and isn't as quick - but has an awesome gun with no turret to make up for it.

i re-bought it a while back after i returned to WoT, hoping to go straight to the t-34/85 after some research. Forgot it was nerfed, constantly bottom tier, (probably because at that tier, light tanks are more likely to be. correct me if i'm wrong because i'm not sure) now i wonder if i would ever get to the next tank advancement without dying of boredom from its inability to do, well what it should of been doing. you can't earn your xp through even denting the opposition, and its nerfed viewing capabilities can't earn you much there either.

the best use for it is really pushing ally heavy tanks along.

 

took the A-20 route to the t-34s. much quicker. literally, on research (for the battle effectiveness) and speed.
