But what will happen when you start playing it at a lower level because of it's reduced capabilities, will you have to play another 100 battles in it for the % to level out?

You will add the results of one more match to the MoE calcualtion.

In order to get a proper representation of MoE level on new Chaffee you would have to play 100 matches of course.

When you judge a tank, you have to compare it with the other tanks of the tier. The current Chaffe is practically a tier 6 tank, so you have to compare it with the T21, 56-16, MT-25, VK 28.01 and AMX 12 t. The new one is going to be tier 5, so it should be compared with the Leopard, ELC AMX and Crusader, not with what it was. Learn how to make proper reviews of tanks, people.

 

I am going to disagree, in first place the current Chaffee is a 'HIGH' tier 7 scout. It MM is Tier 7 to 11 matches. Please note that Tier 7 scouts do not get into Tier 11 matches. So the Chaffee was the last pure scout in the game. No way to compare with tier 6 nor tier 7 scouts in the game ... until patch 9.3

Secondly, have you tried skirmishes on Tier 6 matches. The Chaffee was the best 'medium/scout' tank you could bring to those; what tier 6 scout would you bring now to fulfill that role? Try to around a tier 6 heavy in those matches with one of the new tier5-6 american scouts.

some people probably just like playing "tank" that has to load prem to pen tier8 to side/[edited], is supposed to be scout as tier5 in t10 battle, where every tank has almost better viewrange.

the chaffee's AP pen wasn't hopeless and the top turret base viewrange of 400m wasn't exactly terrible!

RIP Chaffee I loved you so.

My little gold-digger*, your pros far outweighed your cons.

 

Just had a send-off to the little blighter. Made it to 200 skirmish games with Wr 72.4% (unfortunately dropped from 75, but my clan is mediocre at best).

Won 9 games in a row to reach the milestone. A fitting send off I guess.

 

First time I've ever been properly upset about a rebalance, and I sold my 36.01 in disgust when they made it a heavy.

Adieu Chaffee, my trusted friend,
We've known each other since we were 9 or 10.
Together we climbed hills and trees.
Learned of love and APCRs
Skinned our hearts and skinned our knees.

The Chaffee got the same treatment as the VK36.01H. It got nerfed so hard that people forget that the tank exists.

When I was building model tanks when I was little the Chaffee was one of my favourite tanks and I was looking forward to grinding it in WOT, until I saw that horrendous butt ugly top turret. Left the tree for a while but I'm back at the M5 Stuart at the moment. S I've not experienced the marvel that was the old Chaffee, but looking forward to trying the new lower MM, faster Chaffee.

 

This exactly, I grinded the Chaffee long ago but never bought it because it looks so redicolous.

Now I can finally play the 'real' chaffee :medal:

Dont be sad.. they might change the chaffee but they add lots of more need for speed vehicles.

Last day for the Chaffee, I was planning a WoT day break for today as I thought the 9.3 patch was coming today. But as it is coming tomorrow, I think I will, instead, only drive the Chaffee tonight for the light mission -- farewell friend.

Goodbye, little gimp.

I will probably miss you after playing well over 2000 battles together.

While I understand that some people liked the challenge of the Chaffee, I really do feel it was underpowered for the tiers it fought. Especially after playing WZ-131 and now WZ-132.

And on top of that, the top configuration was just nonsense. Yes, there was a plan to fit the T37 on the M24, but that was not the real Chaffee as the world knew it. It was not the Chaffee that served my country.

 

So I welcome the changes. I think I'll put my country's flag on my Chaffee as emblems tomorrow :honoring:

Penetration and damage nerf plus turret and hull traverse nerf = useless Chaffee

Well not useless,  but it isn't the tank I ♡♥♡ anymore. 

 

I decided to go over the 200 skirmish game Barrier.

Didn't take me long to get capturer first class.

Had this game:

(Yeah. I was hogging all the damage (2300 in tier 6 skirmish),  but If I'm spotting blind tanks and I have shots and my clan mates don't...)
