"Although the FV4202 wasn't really that remarkable when it was at Tier X, the rebalancing has definitely turned the tank around in terms of performance. Now, the vehicle can easily compete, not only with other Premium tanks, but also with many standard vehicles of its Tier as well - especially when you learn to use its strong sides to your advantage."

 

No its not competitive because its slow, has no armour and with a 2.6 sec aim time it clearly has bad gun handling as well. I still don't understand why you had to make this tank so bad.

well, to be honest, i wouldn't spend on it more than 1500 g, but for free? Ya, i think i can live with that (but those who'll buy it i'm literally sorry for you, you should buy something else)

this is not a bad tank :) ... the speed is low indeed and the gun has the aim little longer,but is not a bad tank. I'm glad cause i will participate at this marathon to get it for free.

That's some creative writing! Time will tell but, long aim time and bad soft stats look like a recipe for frustration and poor performance - or in marketing speak "an individual tank with a unique play style for experienced players"

I would call the guide in the OP inventive, but that just covers for the fact that its a pack of lies. Unless there is some magic at work, it is a complete hunk of garbage. Gameplay guide? 

 

1) Select FV in garage

2) Slap yourself for being silly

3) Play something else

4) Wonder why you even have the FV in the first place

Seeing as they're not doing limited MM any more, I guess would be tier 8-10 MM as per normal.

M4 has nice alpha tho, you only need to make 4 shots count, and you are fine, with this you need more than double the shots, + you are terribly slow with 0 armor.

It is the worst prem t8 I have ever seen, tbh even the Löwe is better lol. Whoever buys this, cannot be helped :D

Tho if someone has Cent AX and the time to play, he gets a free tank. If its worth playing - I dont think so...

90% of the new tanks that come are supposed to be played as "second line" and "support". How about adding some tanks that are first line?

P.S: For those that wonder why the new FV4202 isn't better: because a lot of players will get it for free, which means that if they made it to be great, nobody would buy other tanks.

I don't mind it not being great, but how about not completely dire? Put it this way. It compares unfavourably in a lot of respects to the FV201. And the 201 is a crap tier 7.

I think it will be playable if they decrease aim time a little and max speed at 40.

In it's current state this tank won't be competitive.

mobility -> bad

hull armor -> bad (not that big of a deal)

gun stats -> bad (except for penetration values)

 

the bad overall mobility plus the unreliable gun (mediocre accuracy, bad aimtime, bad softstats, mediocre DPM, low alpha) will make it a pretty frustrating tank to play I guess. It has some strong features (penetration, gun depression, OKish turret armor), but they won't make up for those horrible downsides.

Just give it it's old top speed and buff aimtime and gun softstats a little ;)

Gameplay guide: Don't play it in its current form. Give it at least one redeeming feature like at least 0.3 accuracy so you can at least snipe with it
