From the point of view of the tech tree it didn't make much sense as a light. But why they didn't just create a whole Brit LT lined and use it there I have no idea.

Supposedly there is a British light line in the works. 

But they said that years ago now and no news since

Shame though, I liked the crusader. But now the 57mm T-34 is superior in every way (instead of just in most ways) and plays pretty much the same.

The thing is nothing changed.

 

It went from being a light with medium matchmaking to a medium with medium matchmaking.  It wasn't classed as a scout before so it wasn't even matched against other scouts.

 

It was useful for LT missions since it got normal +/-2 mm but since all lights get that now it has lost it's uniqueness.

Yes me, too. Especially if we could make them sound like ice cream vans. That way I could maybe get to distract a few enemy players when they dash to see if the ice cream van is there.

I’m now reminded of that ice cream with a gum ball at the bottom, oh and the lemonade lolly that was cold enough that you could stick your tongue to it.

It had the light camo trait still.

It lost the light camo bonus. It was the odd one out that had +2 MM when every tier 5 light had +3 or even the old +4 MM. It was a good DPM bully, but not a good scout or light if you will besides passive spotting. But I doubt it would be a good light after the LT changes. It would def not keep that 2.2K dpm, or the pen, or the derp. It would probably stick to sub 100 pen and 1500 dpm if it was a light, and still got a mobility nerf. So then the reason to play it would be gone as it would need to be on pair with the other tier 5 lights.

 

As a med it still has effective DPM, it still has a function as such. It's still a great passive scout and a bully med. Tho it bleeds more speed vs before and has a bit less DPM. It's still not a bad tank. So I'm glad it is a med. Cus It would be ruined even more if it remained a light I'm fairly sure considering how hard other tier 5 lights got hit.

It removed my only reason to play the Mk VIC! Not that I dabble in tier II much at all. With exactly the same crew lineup, I enjoyed the odd battle in this Premium tank for a crew training boost. Now I don't even have a crew for it.

 

I played the Crusader to 3 MoE (first and only vehicle to achieve this honour) and then I've left it mostly alone. I've had a few battles in it as a medium and found it little different as I recall. 

 

This is a while ago, but one of my best battles. http://wotreplays.eu...powjay-crusader
