Just like I did with the T100, I will try to challenge myself to do as much spotting as possible with the elc even 90.

 

T100 challenge:

http://forum.worldof...llenge/#topmost

 

Since the Elc is even more of a pure scout than the T100 this should be interesting.

I also want to test how much WR I can get by focusing on spotting dmg, this should give an indication how usefull spotting is.

 

I think a realistic goal would be 2K avg spotting/game.  2.2K would be my optimal goal.

 

Current setup:

Which gives me a total of 46.5% camo and a VR on the move of 482m, 547 when standing still.

 

EDIT: switched out the binos for vstabs, binos dont help much I feel while vstabs allow me to survive longer and track enemies better.

 

I will try to update this every day, and if anyone else would like to take the challenge with me, feel free!

 

 

Replays:

Day1 result:

28 battles,1590  dmg, 2239 spotting, 5.3 spots,  82% WR,  68% MoE

Spoiler

 

Day2 results:

Session:

16 battles,1550 avg dmg, 2580 assist.

Overal: 

44 battles, 1575 dmg, 2363 assist, 5.3 spots, 79,5% WR, 85% Moe

Spoiler

 

Day3 result:

72 battles, 1604 dmg, 2339 assist, 5.4 spots, 76% wr, 3 marks!

Spoiler

 

 

Conclusion: 

I have to admit, I thought the tank was crap  and went in this challenge thinking to prove that even with lots of spotting you still lose a lot of games. But when I started playing it the tank just seems to kind of work out, not sure why, but you cant argue with 76% WR and 3900 combined dmg.  

So if you are a good player and are in doubt, its a fun tank and somehow a good tank aswell.

Although I do feel that I lost a lot of games I could have carried due to the lack of dpm. You just cant kill enemies fast enough. Gun handling is ok, you dont notice it much. Imo a buff to the hp/t and reload to 25s instead of 30 would make it a decent tank and not OP.

Good luck. 

 

I was in a game against one earlier and they are tiny, I mean really tiny. Like a little toy Tonka tank. I was brawling against one in my Lorraine and the size difference was nuts

 

I do wonder how accurate the scales are in WoT sometimes

I have 56.47 cammo and 531 VR. But missing the recon crewskill and have SA on 80% and my VR on the move is just under the 450 since I took vents for the slot.

 

Am at 1366 average assisted after 16 games. So 1800 should be doable for you.

If you like spotting, hava a good crew, dont mind not earning a lot of credits and can live with a horrible gun it is.

I think it's accurate but it's also a bit of a joke because IRL it's a two-man tank yet WG found room for a third without increasing its size because it'd never sell as a crew trainer otherwise.

 

But they doubled the size of the FV304 with its HD model on the grounds that it was too small to hold five crew. :rolleyes:

That ticks all my boxes (no, I'm serious) but leaves the question of why would I play the WALL-E(LC) if I already have a HWK 12?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The "HWK can't train French light crews" answer is negated by my having an AMX 13 57 in the garage.

Genius, I hope that sticks. 

 

I'd be well up for trying this but alas I can't get one lol Maybe I'll try it concurrently with Bc12t

I don't know why people dislike this tank. It is super fun! Don't get rammed by your own team, that hurts...

 

I am still playing with a stock crew, so i guess it can only get better. :great:

I am just honest and tell you my finding after a couple of battles in it. And now after a few more it still stands. Awesome spotter. Epic cammo but lousy gun.

I know, I was just kidding. Still hasn't really piqued my interest though.
