STB was allright on the test, but now the Leo has even better gun handling too. For whatever reason right now the STB has worse dispersion stats than the Type 61.

At least it gets fixed in the next patch.

Sadly the turret is nowhere near as reliable as i thought. The mantlet is easily penetrated everywhere and people seem to have find out that STB has a cupola too.

I'll still buy it when i finished the Type 61 grind, because it looks really good and it's still much better than the 30B.

I'm trying to grind for the STB-1, but 255k EXP is just a long way...

Developers decided NOT to implement the penetration nerf in 9.7. It will come together with gold ammo nerf in one of the upcoming patches.

 

AMX 30B had highest penetration of T10 mediums on test server with penetration nerf included.

It have 260 penetration while E-50M (T10 medium with highest penetration on live) have 259 penetration (down from 270).

 

I wounder will this mean that AMX 30B will have it's penetration changed to 271 since 9.7 medium penetration will be reversed or it will stay at 260 but than not nerfed in future (or maybe even stay at 260 and get nerfed in future when nerf will be applied)...

Doesn't look like it's worth deviating from my (long) path the Leopard one for this as in the long run the Leopard is a better tank.

what about the crew? I haven't found any info on the crew member count... do they have 3 or 4 members (I'm expecting 4 since they're Leo cousins)? and if it is 4, that's just shite, we're gonna have to train an aditional member from scratch...

I'm pretty sure they will keep their 260 penetration, It won't be buffed.

Crew is 4 so you will have to find a loader from somewhere.

 

197k XP from 1390 as well, no thanks, not again.

 

Proto looks very good but ultimately the tier 10 prize not so much. 

 

Combo of needing a 4th crew member, the 197k XP with the 1390 which I hated and the tier 10 seemingly inferior to the Leo 1 in every way this line is not for me I think.

I didn't finish personal missions, so no female crew for me. I dismissed the crew from 8 bit tanks because I needed the slots in the barracks and I never had the intention of going down the French lines (I never even dreamed something like this would happen...). 

 

luckily I had ~160k exp on 1390 when I sold it so it won' take much to unlock the AMX30Prot.

 

30B seems like a slightly worse Leo 1, but it is not, it's just a bit different. it has worse agility but better camo and (allegedly) the best shell velocity of all T10 meds (even better than the soviet ones, which currently have the fastest APCR shells). good gun handling (when stationary) will allow it to be played in the same style Leo 1 is played now, maybe just a little bit more static due to worse mobility...

Nah.

 

Not in a million years will the AMX 30B beat the Leopard 1. It's just not as good. Slower, worse gun (very small difference), much worse PW/WT ratio and all soft stats are worse. Don't get it.

Block Quote

 - According to developers, the AMX 30B gameplay resembles the M48 Patton gameplay a lot: it has a very good view range, depression, aimtime and reload time, it is not susceptible to engine burning and ammorack explosions. It'll be a good vehicle (RG: I do agree with that);

 

Phahahahaha! Is this some kind of joke? They are comparing the AMX 30B to the Patton instead of Leopard 1?

It resembles the M48 Patton by being one of the worst tier 10 medium tanks stat wise.

6 months ago, I would have spend free xp on this new french med line. Today, it is a waste of money/time/freexp in current maps. You actually need to bounce something, at least lower tier tank guns. This new line will suffer as does the leopard one. Maybe platooners will make them work but a solo player will be hard put to do anything with these butter tanks.

Well, at least the players have the Russian medium tanks in the game. They are great on every map and every MM they get into.

Looks like I am buying AMX 13 90 back xD

 

I started farming XP on the 13 90 in september when the news came in. It was a bit of a gamble, but I'm now 10k away, occasionally going for daily doubles.

3 skill Polar Bear crew from the 8 bit event :B

 

The only problem I have, will the tier 10 be worth anything except for randoms?

Will be possibly in the same role in CWs as the Leo1 is. But yes, in randoms it's quite enjoyable:
