Title for the lolz.

I have sold my vk tier 6 for the leopard tier 5 under friend suggestions and... holy tanks it's super enjoyable (of course with the luchs gun). Only one gold drum just for bad situations... you can ram, spot, run and annhilate tier 5 and make bad surprises at tier 6 meds and lights. The machinegun is extremely precise at decent distance and it is possibile to unload all the clip. Playing over tier 8 as become a totally nonsense since those games monotiers are the most boring of all (for me), so with the stug and other few other this cute little dwarf as come in the fovourite garage list.

 

Any other lover? :)

Always was, still is. Got even more ridiculous with the removal of light tank MM. It's basically more sluggish, fatter Luchs with way better gun control, what's there not to like?

What?

 

How the hell that "killed" it?

 

The tank significantly benefitted from the fact it now has better MM, because the pen really sucked at tier 8 matches at times.

 

Sure you would sometimes super rarely troll tier 8s but getting once into IS-3's butt and setting him on fire is NOT worth for being nothing but pure scout on tier 8 matches.

 

Leo is not ELC that would just punch through tier 8s with APCR from front.

Did Leopard change at all when MM was reduced? I always found it kind of a sad middleground between Luchs and VK28...

Same gun, slightly less view-range and hp's, but can now mount vertical stabilizers. The one that received the huge buff was the Luchs, no change whatsoever to the tank except getting normal MM. Enjoy playing tier 4 now.

Just a thought, is the Pz38NA playable now, now that its lost its scout MM?

Thing is, I used to really enjoy being the underdog in a tank that almost everyone underestimated.

Yes, I'm sure it's much better 'balanced' now, but nowhere near as 'fun' :(

Yeah, cruising around in a tier 8 game and then molesting random RHM/ISU-152/Skorpion was pure gold. However a lot of you'd find yourself in a corridor map full of IS3s and you'd just hate your life. Not to mention those tier 8 games that were played on long ranges and you just couldn't afford to go closer to get enemy tanks in range of your autogun. Versus tier 7 and lower you could almost always go nearer if necessary, however tier 8 was really unforgiving in that regard.

Yeah, those days are long gone:(

I used to try to play the passive spotter in those games where you simply couldn't move and I always seemed to do rather well.

No I will just have to console myself with raping T67's ;)

The rework of the light tanks totally broke the Leopard. Check out my stats for the last two days. The nerf to the HP hurt a bit, but with food at least the view range can still be pushed over 445 m. A 3,3k+ dmg game i had some weeks ago is also worth watching, it's the highest damage game uploaded to Wotreplays since 2014 (Link). With Vert stabs and food my aiming time is down to 1,57 seconds. lol. I am using the machine gun, of course. I am not using any premium shells btw. <3

Over 2,500 damage, 10 Kills, Kolobanov's medal ... what a match. I hope you enjoy it. :) No premium ammo used!

Got my first 3 MOE since the patch and I still love this tank - I hate myself for saying this, but the Leo just feel too powerful now - especially when it faces tier iv (whoever thought that was a good decision is a muppet).

The only hope we have that it won't get smacked with the nerf bat is that hardly anyone will play it.

Three marked this today and holy crab cake was it painful. :ohmy:

 

I mean I won 60%, aced it number of times and got the marks, but enjoyed probably 0 games. It has to be my least favourite LT in the game and I've played plenty. It just doesn't have anything working for it. Mediocre VR, armor, mobility, gun handling and alpha. On top of this the gun depression works only on the sides and the tank is huuuge. All of this make the only upside (DPM) impossible to really leverage.

 

I got rid of it immediately, but now I'm a bit worried if the rest of the German LT line is as poor...
