In what way is this weaker than regular tier 8 Centurion? Another OP premium version?

Uncompetitive light (Offensive capabilities vs. peers) versus over competitive medium (compared to it's free counterpart), what a difficult choice....

yeah sure.... the elc is as useless as a hooker in a monistary :facepalm: with those wheeled vehicles. I used too love my elc but you will never be able to outrun a wheeled vehicle or outdamage them cause the he will always hurt a crewmember or a module .. so why bothering paying real €'s for a tank that belongs in a wot museum ?

 

To give you my honest opinion, as a player that encounters both ELC, and the Wheeled vehicles, It's much harder for me to hit the ELC that's turning a lot, rather than the the Wheeled vehicle.

The ELC that is turning rapidly seems to lose a lot of speed, though. That enables my LT432 / M41D to catch up with it, and the ELC really does not like getting rammed at full speed. Over the past months, I killed about three of them that way in FL (admittedly, because I wasn't managing to hit them with gunfire while they were moving). Wheeled vehicles seem easier to hit with my gun, but they are much more resistant to ramming. :izmena:

Considering an ELC will hemorrhage speed if the player so much as looks at the A or D keys, that issue is very much unique to you.

I have both already This Centurion is probably my favourite version of that tank better than the Primo Victoria which I also have and the None premium version

Tanks GG hasn't upgraded the model as yet but the front armour of the RAAC is 120 compared to 76 on the others.

The other stats are very similar.

 

What to say about the Even 90 well it can be both a joy and a challenge to play I have one major complaint about it.

Many maps now have fences galore the designers went crazy with the HD detail lets put fences and walls everywhere.

Now I expect to have a problem with a stone wall but not someones garden fence, pretty sure I could drive a car the full length of my road and crash it through everyone's garden fences without problem.

It would annoy them and get me arrested but its just a few bite of wood.

 

But this is a tank its got a 160 horsepower engine and a specific power of 23.88 HP/T it can do 70 kph

Except when it hits a bit of wood or on some maps 5 or 6 bits of wood one after the other while trying to escape an enemy tank or its gun.

It weighs 6700 kg or just over 7.3 US Tons 6.59 good old Imperial Tons

No reason at all for this slowdown to happen.

Big stome walls and trees yes of course bits of wood nailed together no

 

Other than that its a great light tank the slow rof is due to huge gun on little tank its expected, I hate the long reload but when it works its great.

I've considered the Even 90 for awhile now but don't the cars power creep it?

 

As in they make it far harder to passive bush spot as they'll just fly past all the usual spotting points and light you up. Even 90 lacks the firepower to keep them away and even it did, that won't stop the enemy teams big tanks slapping you for big alpha.

indeed ... elc used to be fun  but you can't outrun a car.. can't outdamage them either cause of the reload and if they shoot HE you need 10 med kits to survive :harp:
