I know that the MTLS used to be one of the rarest tanks in the game... and it was op too.

Now for 1.0, almost everyone can have it, so they nerfed it.... too bad.

It's dpm is one of the lowes at tier 3, it deals almost 80 dmg every 4.5 seconds. That is NOT enough for a tank that was such a legend.

I understand that you need to nerf an op tank before making it widely available. But makint it almost useless isn't a good option.

And also the 2 cannon barels move at the same time when firiing. That needs to be changed.

So here is my idea: give it a second pair of rounds to fire. Double the magazine. maybe change the alpha damage per round to 30. That's 120 dmg ~ per magazine. maybe make the rate of fire slower.

 

Who agrees?

So....? If it was still good / too good y'all would be crying on the forums cuz it's to OP. So you're part of the community which is never satisfied :)

It was rare... since no one had it. As in only press accounts, not real players. As play videos from press accounts from 2012 showed. It was more broken then a II J back then, and thus why it stayed in limbo. But meta has shifted on even low tiers. SU-76I is not even that OP anymore. And more and more can deal with the II J with AP even vs no one before.

 

Console still gave it 10 rounds of 5 two round burst. Tho the pen is way way less. So there it's not even good tbh. If they did keep the pen that low. I suspect you would still come to complain. As on console vs most targets, you pen 2 rounds out of the 10 on most clips anyway, as pen goes to 30mm on a low roll. Even vs M2 Lights and their "massive" side armor or French lights, it's mostly useless. At least with more pen and less rounds, you still get more "effective" DPM here.

 

Besides, it's a free tier III tank. Unless you will play it non spot. It won't be that vital. And thus you rarely see they get buffed. I mean the Todli is still there with it's massive 700 dpm.

Played two games to confirm it was crap, then sold it to fund two more games in my FV 4005.

It's actually not all that bad. It is fast, it is nimble and contrary to what OP seems to think, it packs a decent punch (90). It is a tank to flank and exploit. Not always easy and I must admit I had rather forgotten what tier 3 games are like, but I feel this tank has potential. It is definitely a useful crew trainer if you want to build a crew in a 'safe' low tier environment.

There were 2 of the original version on the server prior to this mission.

And the 2 played had good stats.

 

It was ridiculously OP.

I have some friends on the NA server that had Sheriff Accounts which have every tank in the game.  (bounty accounts that award 250 gold to the enemy tank that kills them) and they selected that tank often.

 

The current version seems very meh to say the least.  However, at least WG didn't give it away for free if you only purchase 30,500 gold.:bush:

I think is a pretty decent tank, I block alot of frontal damage and I love the 2 puff puff shots/

It's actually one of the better tier 3 tanks it's accurate good aiming time but the clip is a little small but not like you need 30 rounds a clip and it's low tier so WG doesn't care about balance down there

It's not weak!
But it is not OP strong.

So it is therefore a rather disappointing reward...

It's free crew trainer basically.

I imagine the screams of pain from the Pz 1C fan club, will be huge!
(As it is hard for them to pen it frontally with standard rounds)

I have personaly been enjoying playing my M2 med!

Which without using prem is one of the best tier 3's in my opinion.


The Mtls is certainly not as weak as some other tier 3's!

It's standard pen against most other tier three's other than itself is certainly  not bad!

 

I will certInly keep it mainly for 5x crew training events.

So it has a radio operator... ( I just stuck my T32 5 skill one into it, I get reduced radio range a little, but get all the rest of the skills...)

If I want to troll tier 3...

I will take out my M2, Pz 38T or Strv personally...

Balanced is what it is. Dpm is only worth something if you can penetrate your shells which this tank can. Hell, with premium ammo Pz2J and Matilda’s will suffer and the regular ammo is good enough for anything else.
The armour frontally is bouncy as well, all in all a good tier 3. Coming with a 100% crew not a bad idea to keep playing those doubles/boosters for an extra murican crew

it's a tier 3 premium, stick a good crew in there without penalty and slap on some binos and it will be better than 99% of people it faces.

So you thought WG will throw a joke marathon that a midless monkey can finish and give away OP tank on tier III to everyone? LOL. What are you smoking ?

MTLS is perfect the way it is right now, end of story.

Won't play it, if i want to club seals, there's PzIc on tier 3. Thanks for the crew tho. Might use it later if the need arises.

So you are unhappy with a TIER 3 tank that you got for free. Right.. first world problem if I ever saw one.

Played two games in it and the gameplay down at those tiers gave me several strains of aids.
