Ok, I really need to rant now, I've been playing the ELC AMX, my once beloved little flat tank.

 

And I hate it with a passion, if I ever find out who decided to nerf every single aspect of this tank, I will probably beat him up. Very very violently.

- It has no acceleration, I have to drive over half the map to reach the true max speed of 55 km/h. And I use the premium consumable engine power boost. It weighs a measly 7 tonnes. The VK 16 Leopard (another favorite of mine) weigh 3x as much and still have comparable, if not superiour acceleration.

- It has NO penetration. I run the 90 mm, obviously, because you don't drive the ELC for any other reason, and 120 mm standard might not sound bad, but without a turret and with an aim circle that is the size of a HOUSE as soon as you turn the tank (I run a 4 skill crew, gods know how bad it is for the poor guys trying to grind this piece of garbage) make it almost impossible to hit anything unless you ram them first. And even if you DO hit and penn, you now have to sit there for 11 seconds waiting for the reload!

2.9 sec aim time... No way that's true, more like 9 sec. A rival ELC drove across 1/4 of the map before I was even done aiming.

HP? Nope, none of that either, and forget about armour saving you, tracks can eat an unlucky shot, but other than that, no way. Most tanks will two-shot you. And with no chance in hell to fight at long range, all you can do is to sit somewhere and wait for the battle to come to you, or passive spot, which is hopeless in tier 5 because no one have any clue that the "drive out and attempt to mimic a swiz cheese"-tactic won't work any better this time than it did the 3500 times before that.

 

This is in every single regard a useless tank that you can get a good result in DESPITE its characteristics, not because of it, and it's completely surpassed in every single way by other lights.

 

I hate it.

I hate anyone who had a hand in nerfing it.

I hate every single piece of gold and credits I wasted getting it good.

I hate every single second I spent training the crew.

I hate every single battle I've been in after the nerf.

And I won't grind the wheeled tanks because I hate them for forcing me back to this piece of utter uselessness.

 

If I want to play ELC these days I play the UDES.

 

Never turn on the TV and watch real world events.  You have used up all your anger on a triviality.  I suppose you could mega loath real issues.

Aimtime is the time it takes the aim circle to shrink for 1/3 of it's original size, which is given by the dispersion values.

The aimtime is as it states, the dispersion is just huge. Probably some basic mechanics you should be aware off

after 36k games.
