wish I could give you mine.... dont like playing it now with the WVs about.  Slow, 2 stroke putt putt engine, will flip on the smallest bump (unlike the WVs) could use 1 more shell in the Autoloader.  

 

Best passive light tank in the game tho.

Trust me, it's not worth it. If you want to buy a competitive French LT, wait until the AMX 13 57 comes back on sale.

 

The EVEN90 has trash gun handling, trash DPM, trash alpha, trash weight (get's stopped by a fence) and trash acceleration.

Only thing it can do is use camo to remain invisible but unfortunately this game is about killing tanks, not hiding in bushes doing nothing.

 

EVEN90 has it's moments and I do fine in it myself, but it's not competitive if you want to play even remotely aggressive or have control over the matches you play in.

Even 90 is marginally better than British lights because of the autoloader.

 

We all know how competitive the British lights are...

Well, it's not thier first balanced (ruined) in game tank! 

And I don't think they will care about fixing it, not until next generation. :D

I love mine, but I would recommend against buying it as it is right now, and looking at how few games you have had in the game. 

The EVEN has a very high skill ceiling, and will most likely disappoint if you are anything but the most avid light tank player. 

 

It is slow getting up to speed. 

 

It is not very fast (for example Progetto keeps up with you, and 432 outpaces you). 

 

It has tier 1 DPM at about 1100. Yes, it is true. Tier 1 DPM at tier 8. :facepalm:

 

It turns like a beached whale. 

 

It looses speed hitting fences, trees and brick walls. This has killed me. 

 

Average dmp per shot with a 90 mm gun is 20 lower than other 90 mm guns. :facepalm: again. 

 

 

Having said all this, I still got way over 4K games in mine. But that is solely because I am a very very weird person.

If they don't sell it till december, you'll most likely get a chance to buy it in the advent calendar.

I think WG should have like a scrapyard event, where any unwanted tank you have,  you can nominate up to two players to receive them.

Holy crapimagine that,I could piss people off and make them happy at the same times.

 

 

Holy balls that idea is so good I ought to be smoking something:D

People did this to me. I got the Chi-nu-kai and Strv S1 to me, the latter 'because that tank wouldn't fit my play style'. In the end I have to admit the Strv can be quite nice to play, as long as you don't camp base.

Wait, what, they actually did this, my idea is not new,oh man I am so deflated right now.

I did have the Srtv, my problems start like most of my tanks is actually when I do leave base:D

I have an EVEN 90 & my experience of it isn't very good. As someone mentioned, it needs an extra shot in the autoloader. With the three you get, you can almost guarantee that one will miss, another one will bounce, the final one might do some damage, then you have a 30 second reload. So, one shot that does 250 HP damage every 30 seconds isn't great DPM, is it ? The gun is really just a great way to give away your position, IMHO.

It is a good passive scout if you can tolerate half your team constantly pinging your position, cursing you in chat, & reporting you as a bot.

I found the best way to get kills is to do a "Hit & Run" on an enemy that's down to it's last 600 HP (preferably less) and drive right up to it, empty the clip, then run.
