I am happy someone started a thread about the duck, it's one of the most iconic tanks in WoT. 

 

So, how does it fare with the HD upgrade? Is the armor as reliable as it was before?

Seems nice. By putting this tank into HD, WG have literally polished a turd. :trollface:

Don't like the new mantlet. The old one was more protective, but everything else looks fine...

You can't polish a turd (despite what Mythbusters say) but you can roll it in glitter ;)

Is it correct that the armor was nerfed???
I need more info on that please.

Did it get an engine or ground resistance buff?

Armour didn't change much. I'm just disappointed by the new mantlet. It's just a flat 80mm plate and the old pork nose muntlet is now 30mm of primary armour...

how can it be flat?
It looks very curved on screenshots.

 

No better engine?

WG needs to adress this asap!

It's a light tank. Can't have too strong light tanks. Buff is no-go! :P

So it was effectively (slightly) nerfed?

I had the idea yesterday of getting this tank, then every time someone says something in chat, responding with "Quack!"

 

Player: <NoPoet406>, you're in my line of fire!

Typical response: move and apologise if there's time.

AMX 40 response: Quack!

 

Player: <NoPoet406> bot plz uninstall scrub

I like the Duck how it looks.

I found it cute but funny as well.

Maybe I will start doing that line to.

I suspect only so when fighting Dr Bong. However he is likely very agile as he is also a master of Quack Fu.

My AMX 40 stats.

 

 

I actually bought it back to try again as I had done rather well in it the first time around. I was going to take it to 100 battles, but I got sick of it's GOD-AWFUL speed and I will let the 70% WR stand forever- or until WG replace it and transfer all its stats to a tank I have never played- T1 HMC, I am looking at you!

 

To be fair, that WR is pure luck. 216 HP damage! Well, my wins were certainly not down to spotting. I have just had a scan through my tanks and in those that I have played a significant number of battles, I have more average damage in the Tetrarch (tier II Premium tank) at 223 HP. :D


 

In fact, I have 27 lower tier vehicles with higher average damage, although some of them I have only played a handful of battles. My highest tier IV (other than SPG) is the Marder 38T with 560 HP average.

I am sure I have OCD when it comes to playing WoT in so far as first battle of the session I have to take out SU85B...

You know the one tank that usually gives me problems is the Duck...

T5 and 6 not a hassle but the AMX 40 bouncy little so and so's:)
