Armour good, sort of manoeuvrable, BUT it doesn't count for anything when the gun cant pen anything without premium ammo and even then it struggles! screen shot is a typical game.

Well quite, it's certainly not "sort of manoeuvrable".

My comment was mainly aimed at the topic title, some of it's content was true but who cares if you need to use a few premium rounds.

 

This is more of a typical round.

For the 19k I would have got on a standard account I could have fired 23 premium shells, I didn't shoot anywhere near that.

What you complaining about? Very little at tier IV can pen you either.

its one of those tanks that shines only if you spam full apcr and enemies doesn't :d it was balanced around armor, it has epic preferential mm, you cant have good gun as well. but anyway i think if you have prem acc, you can afford to spam full apcr and still break even or make very small profit.

Shoot APCR and you can still make a good profit and also be very effective in the battle, so it's hard to know what the gripe is?

My best so far. 93 shots bounced.

So it took you 136 games in the Valentine with apparently 180 avg. damage to come to that conclusion? Keep in mind, dear, that it never meets even tier 5 tanks, so the toughest tanks it can meet are other Valentines, Matildas and Hetzers, and gold ammo can and will pen all of those. Also the gold is so damn cheap that you can practically shoot it at everything and as long as you pen your shots you'll still break even or even get some profit.

You can complete PM at tier4 now?? ahahahaa!! hmmm you think this might encourage more seal clubbing? well it's a good excuse as to why you were doing it "just for the PM!" not that I ever needed a reason, club away guys, smashing tomatoes is great fun

Oh and btw, I sold the Valentine immediately. I still have(and yet to use) that other tier4 craptank with the knob on the front from Christmas boxes, the British Australian thingy, ya I just call it the knobtank 

 

Edit- oh and interestingly enough I encountered a tier6 version of the knobtank, anyone else see that??

That was always possible for the stug IV missions, I bought back a few tier 4 tanks for completing a few of the light tank missions

StuG missions you can, and this was before the tier X scouts so a normal tier IV light would have had +3 mm while the Valentine gets +0.  Makes it so much less stressful when you can actually do something toward the objectives.

You have 80 million credits and you're cheap enough not to carry 50% gold ammo. Wow. That's all I'm gonna say.
