I had to come and mention this..

 

Many a time i see a certain tank perform well on the battlefield (Doesnt matter what tier the mm throws at you?)..its kinda an unsung hero as i dont see many praise it...

 

..Is it down to the player??? who knows??...but im noticing this tank seems to perform really well in whatever circumstances?...its a great support tank and lots more..

 

 

it seems to be fast,Agile in both forward and reverse....the dpm impresses me to the point i would actually think of buying one (If ever it came available?)...This tank seems to be a good all-rounder (Me likes)

 

 

...The unsung hero ; T25 Pilot

 

 

 

 

Is it just me or am i just seeing things??....Tell me im not alone:)

It is a tier 8 MT. Wouldn't call it amazing.

T25 Pilot is distinctly mediocre all-round. You're either imagining things or happen to only notice particularly good players.

You may be right here...as i dont have XVM i cant see the type of player that drives them (Battle count etc).....Im still impressed with it tho..

 

 

Seems very agile

The T25 Pilot isn't particularly special in any way, but since it was a Marathon tank and the Marathon was known to be fairly hard (something like win 10 games while being in the top 5 players as an example of a daily mission, while the marathon itself lasted a few weeks) and as a result most of the players driving the T25 Pilot are above-average, as it was very difficult for average and below-average players to complete the Marathon without buying tokens.

Which they did.

 

Only see extremely poor players driving the pilot mostly, they're the only ones stupid enough to play tier VIII mediums by choice in the present MM.

 

And on the whole, they perform horribly in it.

It's decent , till you get hit.  Then it goes downhill rather fast .    Teir 8 is broken so I wont waste my time bringing that thing into teir x 90% of the time.

But that's just it. Tier 8 mediums are the worst tier for tier mostly. And having a jack of all trades medium that is mediocre helps it. As it don't completely suck on some aspects like many of them do. I have not played mine on this account. But my NA account have a few 100 games in it. And it's actually a solid tier 8. Not great, not bad. Just... solid. As it don't sux on one aspect. It's just "meh" on everything. It's like Mr. Burns in The Simpsons. Only reason why he is still alive at his age. Is because he has all the deceases in the world. And they are keeping each other in check. Thus he still works.

its not agile at all, i own one (got it for free with the marathon mission) it accelerates very slowly and it seriously struggles going over hills.

 

its as other have stated very mediocre. it has sub-par penn which gets mitigated a bit by good gun handling but realy if it was atleast kinda fast i think it would have been a decent tank.

It's power to weight ratio goes against it up hill but other than that the stupendously low ground resistance makes up for it's lacking in hp/t.

I must say that the T25 pilot is quite an agile tank, not the fastest or best acceleration but still quite nimble

Thing is....ive actually seen them do quite well in whatever tier..

 

The pilot always seem to do well and have the speed to be upfront doing the spotting/Harrassing...thats why i say its a good support tank....ive not noticed too many T44,s take the positions they take...

 

 

Might be down to the player who knows...but it seems a very 'Flexible' tank in my eyes??

I think it was only second to patriot in net credit income just yesterday.

 

Too bad I didn't play the game during the marathon.

Pilot1 is one of the best tier 8 premium mediums in the game. I love that thing. It performs much much better than you'd expect after reading the stats.
