You are still able to circle your opponents, although a bit more difficult than before.

 

I'm missing the reverse speed and the shell vilocity.

The ammo load out will also put a brake on your participation during a match.

 

The new Chaffee will shine as much as the old, once you have adjusted your gameplay. Sample replay file for 0.9.3 CT client drag and drop onto the WorldodTanks.exe file.

My crew will stay!

 

My crew will move to Bulldog or possibly the T49 :)

 

I have a few other crews I'm thinking of retraining for this line. Easy 8 doesn't come out much anymore but the crew is well trained. T25 AT is the same. Whatever happens I will keep all the tanks on this line though :)

I'm assuming it will be quite a good credits machine after the fix.

i drove T49 and RU251 and both are fast and very dangerous against most tanks at tier 8-10. Tanks like the maus, IS7 etc the super heavies wont feel that derp and the 90mm on the RU251 does not have enough pen to bother with those tanks anyway. But the french, US and british tanks have crap armor and the derp likes that.

To pen any medium you need side armor. and side armor has like 80% track. good luck trying to pen with HE and HEAT.

Well I stupidly asked about an xp refund regarding the Chaffee. You ban guess the bovine excrement that was fed back to me. No xp given back and the fact I got to play the Chaffee has it is/was and the fact I'm already on that line should be enough apparently. How about no, and you start treating your customers with an ounce of decency.

 

 

The new Chaffee looks like it'll be fun, but it's completely different to the tank I researched. Might be a keeper, although I'll have to start it with a brand new crew.

It is very different indeed, but still alot fun.

I've played it on CT server for 30+ matches.

 

Besides all that "it has been nerfed" hype lets look at it's attributes:

  • it has the best view range 390m of all LT5 (Leopard, ELC, Crusader)
  • it's camo values of the past have been restored (at least this is my feeling, 50m rule applies again)
  • it still remains somewhat "nimble" in close combat
  • it has a v-stab, which is unusual in that tier
  • it still has a very accurate and high RoF gun
  • it can active scout, due to the smaller sillouette and top speed
  • it earns credits
  • it has +3 MM

 

For me no question, a keeper and a monster when middle of the teamlist.

I think I asked the wrong question earlier guys.

I'm working my way through the existing Chaffee and have the XPs for the top 500hp engine.  Note that the details suggest the 500hp engine is ONLY used by the Chaffee.

From reading the patch notes, it implies that the new top engine has 460hp.  Will the 500hp engine be used by ANY tank in the future, or is this just 11k XPs down the pan?

Top engine on M24 Chaffee is "AOS-895-1".

This engine will be stock engine on M37.

Spoiler

 

I would say it is 11k down the pan, in case you just want to grind trough and have no abition to elite all vehicles.

Thanks for confirming.  I'll not buy it then.  Just 15k and I'm ready to research the T6 when it becomes available.

Should we take our crews off the Chaffee?

I have four crew skills and don't want to lose those if they give us an elite Chaffee with a 100% crew...

Do not worry your crew will remain as is. My crew on life server is the same as on CT server.

  Iwouldent. i seen gameplay of chaffee and i can say the T37 is an insult to LT drivers eveywhere.

Because?

I'd say if you recommend the T37 to Chaffee drivers they will love it even more, since the T37 is the same but just better.

Yes, the Chaffee is not bad new, but if 9.2 Chaffee drivers want to be the Chaffee drivers they always were, the 9.3 Chaffee is not ideal for Chaffee lovers.

The 0.9.3 Chaffee is closest to what Chaffee was before 0.8.6.

The M37 may have the turret and the gun, but is a brick on tracks compared to what the current Chaffee is.

Once you have completed the 5th skill training the display of the crew skill set is changed, basically a stack of 5 skills and the current training.

Spoiler

It will change to 6x once the current training is complete, but this will take another 2-3k matches im afraid.

Haven't played the T37. I based my opinion on statistical probabilty. I'm an 8.5 player so I don't know what it was used to be.
