You cannot argue using maximum damage like that. It depends too much on the results of one game.


I agree. Wont use max dmg to argue for OP-ness. Just so happened to be right here, thought I'd make a point.


Seems like I dug into a Hornet's nest here... 
Now relax, calm down.

 

After encountering this bugger numerous times over the last 500-or-so battles, I can state without a doubt, that it's one hell of a scout.
A Light, that can rip apart a HT a Tier higher... well, I just wouldn't call it balanced.

Auto loader all the time with me its just a better option for my style and those that say you never get the chance to fire all 10 rounds into a target your wrong if you play it right you can fire a whole

clip into a target and be gone before they have change to react.

 

Autoloader = Needs timing and good tank placement to use effectively

Non Autoloader = more relaxed play style and less to think about in game


 

Both guns are good but for me the Autoloader is the weapon of choice as I am forced to think about my movement and targets.

And I don't use gold ammo because of the cost of the shells its horrendously expensive 56k per full clip with gold ammo.

I think the M41 should get nerfed, just compare it to the AMX 13 75, the 1 clip damage of the bulldog is higher, high enough to finish all the other T7 lights in one clip, it's a  lot faster, the engine can't get hit from the front, it turns better and it has higher penetraition and it has more dmg per shot the only things were the AMX preforms  better  is at terms of presision and it's reload time.

Let me guess. You are another one M41-theoretic. You have no Bulldog or can't play LT correctly but sometimes you meet normal Bulldog in random game and it kills you. It drives you mad and you want to change it by nerfing tank. Something like this?

 

Welcome aboard, friend. You can find a lot of similar players in this thread :)

Well, as a Bulldog driver I have to admit that it is somewhat better than the rest of the tier 7 scouts- it has speed, agility, depression, great gun. The only downside is the reload time of the autoloader and the acc. could be better. Other than this it is a very, very pleasant vehicle to drive.

Or 13 75 buffed? Seriously that thing is very bad and meets tier 10's.

The walker bulldog M badges are really cheap those days:

2283 prem XP  is very affordable.

You forgot its size. Bulldog is huge. It means more problems during hiding in bushes and higher chances to hit your tank by opponents. Just try to play ELC AMX to see how comfortable can be tank that can be covered by any hillock. M41 is big and it is a problem

I just got M41, had the best engine already researched and freexp:d the tracks. It is really really really smooth thing to drive. I havent driven anything yet that would compare even nearly to how well it handles. Still have the stock gun and turret, but I can only imagine what it will be fully elited. I even ran one game with prem gas and food to see how good it can be :trollface::playing:

 

Old Chaffee was by far my favourite tank and with old MM it also had tier 10 games with old MM, so nothing new there. And this thing is Chaffee on supersteroids...

It depends on your skill only. Bulldog average damage per battle is 690 points on EU server so usually it doesn't even gets its own HP number. If you like to play light tanks and if you know that LT is not equal to scout or even suicide scout then it can be very comfortable tank. Small example.

Yes, the tank can see and face all the high tier tanks, but the mobility, the auto-loader and camo values, if using a good crew make this a very capable tank if you combine active and passive scouting...although, I've still yet to completely master my light tank style.

if you are driving a tier 7 scout it is the last tank you want to meet 1 v1 .

 

if you are driving a tier 8 medium or heavy.. the same applies!
