Once again I bring this tank on the forum in the hope that someone at WG will do something about it.

 

AMX65T fully upgraded with middle gun (highest pen) - 157 battles, 134 in tier 10, average XP per battle 541, average damage per battle 660, average survival rate 7%. 

 

1) How do u ever grind to tier 9 with 500 xp per battle

 

2) Why does no one at WG know how bad this thing is

 

3) no I'm not playing it stupidly - in the odd top tier game I play as top tier in all the others where I'm bottom tier I sit behind frontline and snipe - EXCEPT - it cant hit a barn door nor pen it even with apcr it bounces off ISM lower plate and such. It simply does NOT have the stats that WG claim it has.

Combat xp booster + premium time + always shoot higher tier vehicles + play like a complete and total coward.

I rage sold this s**t and didn't ever regret it: I will never get the amazing tier IX but this grind should be listed as a crime against mankind. Not only you have to fight against 29 players, usually being low tier, but this tank is even bullied by low tier tanks and can't hit anything. 

 

Dunno if it is a cunning plan by WG for making you sell your free XP or gold to skip it but this tank is the new definition of "bad".

If he could go past 27 on most surfaces and reach 50. Even if it took ages to get up to speed. It would be 10x better by that alone. As the speed killed it as much as the crap top turret did.

The tank is bad so that some people will convert free XP to get past it and earn WG some money. I'm going to dislike it, but I will grind through it.

Never seen a stupider looking tanks in all my time here .  You get the top turret and it looks like it was designed in 1925.

 

 

It'd be OK if it was faster.  Clearly this is the free XP sink in this like. There is always one.

Dont bother equipping any of the upgrades u spent hours researching - the tracks do NOTHING, the engine does NOTHING, the turret is WORSE. Play it stock with middle gun and suicide fast so you don't actually have to play this ridiculous crap - this thing would struggle at tier 7.

Because this tank is designed to be a deliberate free-XP sink, just like the Mle.45 is, the TVP VTU is, the T-34/100 is, the Churchill Black Prince (Tier 7) is. All of these tanks are designed specifically to be average to mediocre as an incentive for people to convert free XP for gold to unlock modules but more importantly, skip the entire vehicle.

 

The Mle.49 premium should be the regular tier 8 heavy tank in this line and the Amx.65t should be the premium. The Mle.49 fits the line like a glove playing exactly the same as the tier 9 and tier 10, but we got the AMX.65t, a tank which is nothing like the tier 9 and tier 10 in the line.

Why? Because Wargamings greed, why would they make the regular tier 8 an enjoyable tank that fits the line when they can make that vehicle into a premium tank? Now they get money both for the premium tank *AND* because tons of people use xp top entirely skip the tier 8 as it's an atrocious vehicle.

3) no I'm not playing it stupidly 

You are clicking battle instead of the convert exp button.

 

Just give up, anyone who values their sanity already did.  Either free exp it or go for a different line.

Surely if a tank sucks that hard then just play the daily and weekend bonuses to minimalise the pain?

 

At some stage you'll get enough for the next tier...

Didnt find the AMX 65 t that horrible of a grind. It was not free of pain either.

Currently at the tier 9 which I just love.

Having the same issues u had in the AMX with the IS-M, thinking about free xp ing it to the 705.

Only bad thing about the tier 9.. is the stock turret is the 65t top one. And It's not a fun grind to get that away.

"Average" and "mediocre" are synonyms, but Wg's habit of creating sinks for free xp as a part of their business-plan is long and well documented.

 

Now making the AMX 65t a premium...   not sure what would ever justify a purchase of such a poor vehicle that lacks any historical value.
