Guys I think the old Elc Amx was better than the Elc nowadays.I think that it is too slow for light tank and the penetration now is a crap.I want the old legendary ELC back and dont nerf these tanks.Why dont you nerf the premium OP shits like PATRIOT or LIBERTÉ because it s unfair.

Because Patriot, Liberte, VK 100P etc are heavy tanks and not light tanks. Therefore, t hey can't be nerfed.

 

But the new french prem light just got nerfed before release.

Gee a tier 6 scout (effectively) was/is better than a tier 5 one. So what other "new" info do you have to share with us, water wet and the sky is blue maybe?

ELC AMX like other tier 5 light tanks are basically now one tier lower than before, thanks to improved MM. Also, it actually has better gun handling now on 90mm gun.

 

If it was the same as before, tier 5 light tanks would completely dominate tiers 4-6..

 

But WG did ruin the unique play style it had, which is a shame.

I haven't driven mine since it was "reworked".

Still keep it in the garage though right next to the Chaffee, those were such unique and interesting tanks to play.

 

A sincere "up yours buddy" to everyone who cheered for the LT changes.

The completely wrecked the engine horsepower for no reason on the ELC, even with the light tank changes and the old stats it would have been far from overpowered.

 

It's a shadow of it's former self now and another victim of the great Wargaming 2017 slaughter of proper balancing in this game.

Pen was nerfed since it was balanced for tier X when it arrived. As then scout MM was +5, not +2 like now. So I don't see why it still needed 248 gold pen to name one in it's current MM. Nor the old AP pen. But considering every tier 5's LT's have their pen between 90 to 100 mm pen. So 120mm is still better then anyone of them, or even most tier 5 meds. And it's a 90mm gun, not a 57mm. So he can overmach more then the other lights. I know most play it like a TD. But it should not have TD pen IMO. 

 

Mobility? Well I kinda have to agree with you there. It should get some of it's old glory back. I saw a reason to nerf the pen. But not the mobility,

Or because his fun tank was nerfed. ELC drivers didn't drive them for the stats.

I certainly didn't. It was my first tier V and my stats are horrendous. I've got 1500 games and 550 Wn8 I think. But my winrate is 53% and something like 3.5 spotting. The old ELC was fun to drive, and fun to scout with. Back in 2013 I never knew about stats or WN8. I was a scout and my job was to spot. I managed one MOE with something like 195 average damage per game.

 

I re-bought the current one to give it a go. I've mounted the smaller gun for the 360 turret and that makes the gameplay a little more interesting. But it drives like it's drugged in comparison to the old one. Nowhere near as much fun.

The thing that I find most amazing about WoT, is that the game started out with all of these so-called "broken" vehicles and still became incredibly popular and successful.

How on earth did the developers do so well without all of the whinging and cries for 'nerf this!' from our community of experts?
