My best game in it so far : 3645 dmg

Funny little tank.

I predict nerfs.

What a super tank. I play it as a medium. A lovely gun, good acc on the move and its fun. I also predict a nerf in 9.4. Maybe 100 less HP?

after playing with t71 i was  a bit disappointed with t37

i expected more agility since it has no armour as well

I have nothing to say about this tank other than it's a solid tank.

Not an inherently fun or spectacular tank(though the top gun without autoloader is pretty damn good), but as far as LTs goes, it's an enjoyable experience with no real downsides or major weaknesses.
I'll consider it a baseline for tier6 lights from now on.

If anyone is on the fence about the new LT branch, rest assured that the T37 won't be in any way a problem, or even a free XP sink. It's pretty good from the get-go.

 

I take back someof what I said, having more experience and having switched the optics for binos to do a bit of passive spotting at the start of the battle really brought out the "stay alive and spot/harass" mantra of this tank.
It's even better than I though.

Good on the move accuracy and RoF mean decent anti-scout, good pen means good harass, good view range and mobility means good scouting.
Like some less popular US tanks, it's only "pretty good" on paper, but absolutely spectacular with some experience.
Like the old top tier M46 Patton from before tierX meds, absolutely everything clicks in sync.

Bottom line: get this tank. It's serious fun, and I wouldn't be that surprised if it had some soft stat nerf in the future. It completely and utterly outclasses the T21.

I love the T37, not because its particularly fast or anything, but because its gun is beautiful. The expected damage is quite low on all lights, so WN8 is rather easy if the gun just has pen. But mainly I think the problem is that the quick tanks tend to die quickest, so they aren't there to farm those easy shots that pop up once in a while where you can farm some extra damage because the enemy does something dumb.

The only bad thing about this tank is the amount of ammo it carries. 12 less shells is a lot for such a good RoF. Apart from that, it's a keeper!

This far it has been one of my cursed tanks, around 25% win rate. The tank itself doesn't feel that bad, but it's hard to evaluate in this kind of teams.

I'm having exactly the same run with mine. I know it's a great little tank but I just can't have a half decent game in it. Really not enjoying the T37 thus far. Even had to give up trying to get the x3 today.

Not enjoyed it myself. 4k needed and then it's done. What's really, really annoyed me it the so called 150mm pen of the best cannon. It's been absolutely horrendous for me. Bouncing off the back of a St.EMIL, bouncing off the side of a tier 9 WT, the back and sides of meds and lights it should just go through like butter. I know RNG effects everyone but it's every single game. 

 

Also it's a magnet for useless/bot arty. Should have been well out of it by now. Sadly it seems arty aren't interested in lights spotting for them anymore. Well not in my experiences anyway.

Had miles more fun and success in the old Chaffee. I'll certainly not miss it.

only 3 light tanks that I I have liked so far. T71, RU251, and now this massively OP T37.. with the MM it gets and with a competent driver, then you can be a serious threat to the enemy team. I have only lost in this tank if I get a really donkey stupid team.. I hovering about 4500wn8 for a light tank o.0

My crew is crap in this tank, i havent upgraded all modules yet.. but i keep on losing.. even when i have those rare games where i carry my own and deal damage the team doesnt follow and we lose the battle again.. therefore i cannot get enough XP to unlock modules..

 

This morning i aimed 3 consecutive shots at an e-25, and they all overshot the tank by at least 3 metres.. while aiming dead center at the tank at around 300m. i know i suck but i can feel it bad when i drive this tank or the t21..

 

 i hope thing will get better when i elit it and get a better crew in it.

loved it, played it the same as the chaffee (which i sold before the nerf, i wanted it to stay in good memory), great for stat-padding (managed 2,8k wn8 in it), i might buy it back to "correct" my stats, although the Ru works almost as well for that.

Love this tank - just managed Top Gun in it in a tier 7 battle - 7 kills.  God knows what you presently have to score for Ace Tanker though as I only managed 1st class with 1167 exp.  Will probably keep it once I get the M41 as it also works very well in the low end stronghold battles.

This is in a light tank ;)

It is bloody brilliant.  Not playing it like I used to play the Chaffee.  Instead I play it like a pseudo medium.  It doesn’t feel as nimble as Chaffee, but with the MM and gun combo it feels to me as though it is more effective in a combat roll.  If they don’t nerf it the next couple of patches it will get camo and be a keeper.

If you like that T37 mastery requirements you'll love whats waiting for M41 - 1167xp for M41 is going to be barely 2nd class mastery (not always been even that)

I like this one very very much. I started my Bulldog-project couple weeks ago. Free-xp'd my way to Stuart, one match in it, few in chaffer and then to T37. My plan was to "tolerate" it and actually grind towards Bulldog. This way I would also get decent crew in it (=6th sense).

Well, it just happened so, that I kind of fell in love with this little beast. I'm a avg player with WN8 of 1200, but with this I constantly average to 2000-2500 per day. O.o And I am not even planning to move the crew to Bulldog. This is a keeper! Excellent company for my friends Comets and similar. I'll actually rather sell my hellcat (probably best win rate etc in it) and put that crew in Bulldog.

Now I've played some 106 matches on this, and unlocked the Bd. Will still continue making this elite and then making some free-xp for my Bd modules with it. Now it seems to be my best vehicle to earn exp and creds.

PS. I believe my short learning curve to this tank is result of having T67 my favorite vehicle. This is just much more mobile, nimble and gets to shoot much bigger experience Piñatas! B-)

 

Edit. Typo

i finally elited the tank.. and i actually love it.. engine is much better and i can't wait to get a decent crew on it. this tank can definitely change the outcome of battles if played well.. stock with bad crew is sucky but things are alot better now.. it is also miles ahead of the t21... t37 is definitely a keeper..

I also bought this tank yesterday, and researched all modules with free XP. Well, not the autoloader since I don't autoload.

 

After hundreds of games in other light tanks and Chaffee... this tank is not OP, but the skill ceiling is even higher than with Chaffee. In other words, if you are OP, the tank is OP. WG will probably nerf the gun though, it seems a tad too good.

 

Sure, it's not as nimble as Chaffee but the best gun is soooo much better with accuracy, aim time and penetration it's not even funny. The carrying capability is also much better than with Chaffee. And holy jebus you actually get tier 7 games with this.

 

The only downside is this tank makes my old favorites like like Easy 8 look total crap.
