Hi!


 

I assumed that it comes in calendar but no. Is it coming to sale or not....


 

Advent calendar was big disappointment.

Two new premium tanks are being released in January, the ELC will be one of them.

I think the 2nd is not the kanonenjadpanzer 105, the 2nd will be the premium version of the Caernavron, which now is an excellent T8 HT.

 

EDIT:

unless they seriously buff the elc even 90, I would pass.  that tank will be seriously UP.  The only thing it really has going for it is camo.  everything else is very bad.

The M3 Lee has almost 2300 dpm without rammer, BiA, etc. That's roughly 1000 more dpm than the ELC premium as currently specced. Most tier 4 lights have somewhere between 1700 and 2100 dpm. Lower tiers are murderous and merciless. It's incredibly punishing and that's exactly what makes them fun to play.

Yeah, but it's one of the smallest tanks in the game with one of, if not the best camo, and having that at tier 8 with a good crew would be an fantastic scout

If they where to release a Tier 6 Premium that would be more or less the ELC Bis before it was nerfed to death, i'd by it on the spot. That Even ELC thing though ? Couldn't care less.

Shush! Don’t let slip how much fun the 13 57 is. Don’t want more of them flooding the game if WG ever sell it again.

EVEN 90 looks absolutely terrible by current stats.

 

It would be decent as a tier 7 light tank, but is tier 8.

It's quite clear to me that people complaining here, doesn't know the real job of a scout tank, which is to spot, and when this tank is one of the best if not the best spotter in the game, why the hell complain?

Because spotting in this game is mostly useless?

The only problem is we don't have enough open maps where you can utilize the scouting capabilities, on most maps it would be pretty frustrating to play. However, I did enjoy the old SP1C quite a bit when it had same effective MM, so I might still buy it (5 skill elc crew helps a lot too).

First, you are misstaking Light tanks and Recon Vehicules (scouts). While many Light tanks are intended to performe Recon missions among other things, a Light tank isn't necessary meant to. ELCs weren't, see below.

 

Secondly, ELCs were prototypes designed to meet a request from the French Army for an anti-armor vehicules small and light enought to be air-dropped from the planes available at the time. His intended role would have been to f**k up armor to support infantry when sending conventional anti-armor vehicules by other means couldn't be done (like supporting paratroopers in very remote locations in Africa, which realy was what was behind the idea).

Aye. We just need the maps now that allow the lights to be scouts.

Regardless of the ELC's role in reality, in WoT part of a light tank's role is to provide vision for the team.

There are no scout tanks in this game. There are only light tanks.

The most important question we have to discuss here: Is that "Vehicules" Thing mentioned by Kharlos76,

more of a Cetaur-like being or rather humanly, and also where the mechanical parts are located?
