Penetration is frustrating often , gold shells are something that costs more than a fortune and still, barely 210 pen. A great tank, remember playing it with 175 pen, it was amazing.

 

I actually managed to accidentaly unlock t69 instead of m41 walker bulldog... Now grinding it again.

I only have two clips of HEAT that i never use unless i have to enage superheavies, japanese *cough* heavies *cough*  and i cant flank them, most of the time the apcr does the job just fine.
Havent managed to get my t71 to 100% yet, currently at 97%.
Actually getting something to 100% is so hard, i've only managed to get hellcat to 100% with close to 4 damage ratio in the last 14 days

This is my favourite tank so far, it is so awesome! I love it so much I am now waiting for the nerf bat to beat it into oblivion :(

 

What is there not to like? Its quite nippy, decent view range and camo values and a lovely little autoloading gun. 

 

A couple of my recent games below, note; I am no where near unicum in fact you'd probably class me as a "good tomato" if anything :p

 

Edit; Trying to 2 MoE it now, I'm at ~81% so close, have never Ace Tanker'ed it yet but get a fair few first class.

little love taps on the handbrake can help pull the gun round faster ;) it's a balancing act between speed and getting the gun round though...

 

To be honest I think that is probably the worst thing about this tank and it isn't too bad a problem.

T71 DA only takes off a same tier heavys hitpoints by like 80%? BALANCE CONRAD! DA!

 

You are conveniently forgetting the penetration nerf, the fact that it uses APCR and that gold shells are 5600 creds.

If that is truly the case, why is your winratio in the thing significantly lower than other light tanks? Just wondering how you came to the conclusion that it is OP.

Why dont you look at your stats and anser that question yourself. Your T71 comrade edition only gets beaten by by your SPIC (did you play that kraut when it was still an autoloader or only as singleshot?). But I guess you want some actual points

 

-it has strong viewrange

-it has insane 900 burstdamage

-it has insane shell velocity

 

I honestly dont know why my winrate in it is lower. All I can tell is that it felt ludicrous when I still bothered playing it and I only did it for the personal missions.

I played the SPIC with the autoloader but my performance in the T71 is very similar to my performance in a lot of tier 7 light tanks.

 

Reason for this is that tier 7 light tanks are the sweet spot in WoT at the moment where you guns are competitive with other classes and your view range/camo still matters and makes a difference.

 

Once you get to tier 8, 9 and 10 light tanks more and more become gimped mediums with less penetration, less view range and less effective camo (due to inflation of view range on other classes).

Three marked this today. Used Vents, Vstab and Optics.

 

I would definitely call it the best LT at tier 7 and a bit OP if you ask me. I won 65% of my 150 some games in it and was so often top in damage and xp, even as a bottom tier, that it was almost not even funny anymore. Don't get me wrong, this is one of the most fun tanks in the game, but a bit too good imho.

 

I usually sell the tank after 3 marking it, but this is the first one that really hurts to do so. I just know that I wont be playing it as there is nothing more to "achieve" in it.
