Not bothering with this line, focusing on the E50M line instead :)

Its somehow fun tank when it works but with 430U/Super Conqueror/v4/Type armor saturated hull down meta having one in your team is simply liability most of the time.

Why would I need 20k exp on tier X vehicle? Pay for it in order to pay again to convert for free exp?

Got it yesterday.

I have to say playing the 50-120 was an interesting experience.

With some halfway decent turret armour the tier 8 9 and probably 10 would be great tanks.

But lets face it every shot that hits will pen and though mobile these are big targets especially the 50-120 and the 50B.

 

Anyway completed the line so I can now see what else I want, maybe await the next top of the tree.

How more idiotic can your milking become?

 

with accelerated crew training on it will be dumped into your crew, which is nice but not that much of a big deal seeing as its a tier 10 tank still and most people have good crews by that point

I have now found the worst tank in World of Tanks. The AMX 50 100. Soon as you are seen everyone stops what they were shooting at and focus fire you with full damage, and if you have a chance to fire back before death you'll miss or do no damage with regular ammo. HE is something that gives a little damage and hits at very close range, I've yet to try gold.

 

Serious bad tank, avoid!

 

PS I found it's strength... its good at running away from A into C the red team who then catch you from the rear at B

It's funny you should say that because I met that brick wall too, and could not be bothered to continue Top of the Tree event about one week ago having flown through and liked the ARL, then the AMX M4  45, liked, and got to this monstrosity! AMX 50 100!  It was kind of the one I wanted for Frontlines but I already have a Lorraine 40t and it is about 5000x better than the AMX 50 100 so...  However, I can make it work, just about, just dislike it a great deal and find it more of a pain to play than anything.  However, I have been going down the Swedish td line and the tier 5 Swedish TD, IKV 103, that thing is a bad joke, and the tier 7 I am intensely disliking too. Both worse than the AMX 50 100 by a mile for me. I could pick out a few other worse tanks too, but you're right, would be in my top 10 maybe of tanks to avoid compared to other tier 8 tanks. I just got the Black Prince tier 7 heavy and frankly prefer that so that is saying a lot!

I watched a lot of 50-100 players some time ago and they tended to specialise in late battle cleanup.

Stay back and support then when there are a number of low hit enemies around to go and oneshot them.

Never managed to do it consistently as I am a bit to aggressive.

 

The 50-120 I found worse its quite a bit larger and pretty much the same armour.

Got the 50B not played it as yet.

Needs the Turrets off the Swedish Heavies then you might have something.

Aye it is the armour. They might have made it out tin foil for all the good it does, it rarely even bounces.

 

It's a bit of a joke calling it a heavy or even a medium for that matter.

The camo is **** and the only way to hurt other tanks is using your radio range to get a target. Get seen you die in four shots every time, and those 4 shots come in moments not over time. It needs to bounce shells better than its currently doing, even some light tanks bounce better, and the WV sure don't get hurt as much from direct hits as this monster. No wonder the French never win wars if this is what they make for battles. Poor Frogs :(

What really kills the 50 100 for me is that insane intraclip reload. It simply takes too long and you are exposed and damaged by virtualy everything in game. Somua SM is much much better in this regard.

E-50M is great but I would also recommend giving 50B a try! :izmena:

Got the Sumoa for 10 battles as a rental and that is a tank I would be interested in. It says 11k gold and I do have that, but the purchase button is grayed out.

 

Do I first have to play those 10 battles before I can buy it or how does this work ?
