This heavy tank with the heart of a medium has all the merits of a great fighter.

Remember that time when FCM 50t was a great tank? Neither do I.

Don't waste your money on Pref MM tanks.

 

When I got the FCM 50t it was the #1 money making tank in the game.  Now it is #25.

http://www.vbaddict.net/statistics.php?tier=0&tanktype=0&nation=0&premium=0&modeid=0&team=0&battles=1000&groupby=0&fieldname=creditsn&server=

 

Pref MM tanks are tier 7.5 and once upon a time they were regularly top tier and often saw tier 6 and occasionally saw tier 9.  This made them powerful and their low pen wasn't a constant problem.

 

These days they see tier 9 most games.  The few times they are top tier it tends to be full tier 8 games with the occasional tier 7/8.

On rare occasions they'll be in a 7/8/9 game and very rarely they'll be one of the 3 tier 8s in a 6/7/8.

 

So these days they always struggle to pen the opponents they meet and so you are forced to fire gold which means you rarely make the profit that once made them (perhaps) worth £35.

 

 

Quickybaby's thoughts on Pref MM tanks (despite the click bait title).

It is not only about MM. I feel that if you move FCM down one tier, make it tier7 pref. tank. It would still be bad.

Since Pref MM is completely broken at the moment (as is the matchmaker in general for anything that is not tier 10) it's not worth buying any T8 premium tank that is not either the Skorpion or the Defender.

I disagree, it would be a nice tier 7.

 

But as it stands, it is a tier 8. And it sucks.

 

Close your wallets people, you will only regret it. I know I do.

It is.

 

Don't buy it people. If you want a french heavy, just buy the liberte next time is on sale (but without the clown cammo).

Defender is not worth it.... it is good only for bad players and against bad players... dont make that tank something special coz WG will sell it in bundles for 100€+ :trollface: I like more lorraine, skorpion G, patriot.... everything other is only for collection or crew training...

Could you please stop this trend of not publishing the prices on the news page? It's specially annoying when checking trough the phone, I don't want to navigate another app to check them. Also annoying when trying to compare different packs.

 

Same as with the new personal missions UI, what was wrong with the old, more informative, style? Please don't follow worlds of warships webpage example, God I hate that web so much...

 

Not that I'm going to buy any of today's crap, but at least let me decide it faster.

no longer does... after dev. team release the super OP prem like defender, skorpion, etc... this FCM  seem to be outdated. 

Also preferential matchmaking doesn't work anymore. You will always getting tier 9 battles, where against type 4 hevy u really don't count.

So... I guess our voice on the forum doesn't count for dev team anyway... 

we request something and they always provide opposite... 

no vision for those office bobs.

The FCM is excellent except for one thing. It performs poorly in combat.

This tank is not worth the money, it is not good enough to face other tier 8 heavies and mediums.

Better to save your money for a Skorpion G, Patriot, Defender or Liberté.
