Hi im stuck i dont know if its worth my grinding to the bat chat

I like the AMX 13 75 and am almost at the 13 90 but feel the medium looks slow and am questioning the gun

 

Is it worth it?

 

Kind Regards

The batchat 25t is the best tank currently in the game. Its also the most used medium tank in Clan wars / Company's. 

 

If there is a tank in the game that really is worth getting , its the batcat. / Exozen

one of the worst grind in game, even then bat chat 25t is worth it. it's that good.

not the best medium but one of the best easily though, amx 1390 is the better tank in that line

worst grind in game... I disagree. tier 5 and up is amazing line. Even the lorraine once you realize you must play like a coward.

It's a beast!

but...

BatChat requires an experienced player to work well.

Good map awareness and timing are key to succesfully driving a BatChat.

Considering your highest tier tanks are KV-4 and Centurion I, I would recomend one of those lines for your first tier 10 tank instead of the BatChat.

If you're looking for the autowin super OP tank the clueless whiners claim it is, forget about it. Bat isn't better than any other t10 med, it's either situationally better or (much) worse. Forget the legendary "fear factor", what you get is actually the "top priority target" factor with stalkers counting your shots before they jump on you 3vs1 or idiots suicide-rushing you every battle. Like all French tanks, it's very demanding and stressful to play. It can be very fun once every 15 battles, when you end up in a decent team, with fair MM, on a favorable map and on the good side of RNGesus.

Well I see pretty below average players do well in it.

 

It is also the most played tier 10 tank, yet despite that maintains a 54% win rate. 


So it gets exposed to more bad players than any other tier 10 but still has one of the best win rates, better than all the tier 10 heavies and most of the TDs.

 

Statistically most players will improve in the Bat Chat than a lot of other tier 10s. Careful trading alone could easily net you high damage.

Its a fun tank thats for sure, but do consider that the team has high expectations of you. If you hang in the back a bit and keep sniping you are not using the tank to its capabilities.

I'm currently grinding the 13 90 which is really fun to play and even though a lot of people complain about the Lorraine I'm actually looking forward to it since i expect it to be fairly similar to the 50 100 which is one of my favorite tanks (though I still think the Lorry should be replaced).

 

I completely disagree with this line being one of the worst, on the contrary, I think its one of the most pleasant, unless of course you don't like playing light tanks, in that case stay away from it.

And yeah I tried the BC on the test server and think it is worth getting, although I'm worried it may get hit with the nerfhammer in the future due to its popularity and perfomance.

Hahahahahaha... Everywhere i look, i see this fellow speaking about cowards... His idea of this game is pretty straight forward. Get a Maus, drive to the center of the map, encounter another Maus there and start banging each other until the timer runs out. 

If some guy gets a medium tank, he considers that is fair to meet him in the center of the map and start banging him head on. If i get an arty, i should do that also.

In fact, in his name tag, he actually asks of WG to remove all the tanks in the game, but the Maus.

 

 

As for the topic: The Bat is a good tank if played well, if not, you will get very frustrated since even the guy that hates cowards will kill you in his Maus. Yeah, go for it. In my experience,the french line was ugly until Lorraine, which i found to be an absolute joy.

Unlike most of the players, i succeeded in controlling the Lorraine and scoring good with it. On the other hand, i could not adapt to the requirements of the 13 90.

 

Btw WG_PLS_MM_GG_OP_ETC, the 13 90 is OP? Ever a 13 90 appeared in front of you and after 2-3 seconds the server told you that you had been slain by a Death Star or by Satan Jg E100? Or perhaps a T92 dunked a 2000 dmg basketball on top of your only tank^^.

If a Bat player is a coward, what can you say when you eat 3 Foch shells in 10 seconds leaving you there raped and for the buzzards to finish off?

Don´t talk/write rubbish, of course there may be also other vehicle classes but the moment the specs are proving to be to strong, a fact wich is shown in vehicles stats, those shall be rebalanced accordingly, that´s all.

Wins games even in the hands of noobs, you have a light tank that pretty much has tier 10 medium health, tier 10 medium gun and stupidly high clip damage.

 

So yeh, hence why its the most played tier 10 because "balance".

BatChat is the most played tier X because it's FUN, not because it's Overpowered. :smile:

It has 3 strong features:

  • 1950 burst damage in 11 seconds.
  • excellent speed and acceleration
  • very good camo, only Obj 430 has more.

And it's ballanced by having a LOT of weak features:

  • 40 second clip reload
  • worst Damage per Minute out of all the tier X mediums
  • worst accuracy out of all the tier X mediums
  • worst aim-time out of all the tier X mediums
  • worst gun handling ( hiddend stats ) out of all the tier X mediums.
  • worst traverse speed out of all the tier X mediums
  • worst HP out of all the tier X tanks
  • worst armour out of all the tier X mediums
  • lowest crew count out of all the tier X tanks + 2 crewmen are loaders!
  • only 30 shells ( which, at 390 damage, can be a serious problem if you wanna carry a game )

 

BatChat is a hard tank to perform in, and it's not reccomended for novice players!

Of couse, anyone could YOLO in it and hope to do 1000 damage before they die, but that's not what I'd call "performing". :tongue:

Calling the BatChat OP is just ignorance.

I did the unthinkable. I sold mine:ohmy:

However: It is a very good tank. If you can manage the autoloader playstyle this tank is a blast. At the end of a random game it is borderline OP.

So I can only confirm the other posts: It is a great machine to have.

 

The problem: it is just a "prototype" "blueprint" tank. In my opinion WG should have gone for the AMX 30 instead.

So I went back to 13 90 which is a tank that actually existed on the field:child:

Batignolles-Chatillon Char ( Tank ) 25t was actually built.

So it's not a "blueprint" tank! Okay? :mad:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Batignolles-Chatillon_Char_25T

 

Most high tier tanks in WoT have never even been built, nevermind seeing actual service in the Military.

I could make a huge list for you, but you can use Wargaming's wiki for it: http://wiki.wargaming.net/en/Tank:Bat_Chatillon25t

For example: from all ther tier 10 Heavy Tanks, the only ones that were actually built at some point were the Russian ones.

Tier X TDs that have been built..... NONE! ( the tier 9 Foch existed but not the 155 version )

etc etc etc
