2nd cutest tank in the game beaten only by the Locust!

 

With 3skilled crew and camo directive it creates a lot of situations of "how the hell am I not spotted yet!"

 

Other than that, crap mobilty, crap acceleration, potato gun...

Tier 8 in a size of tier 1 . Gun handling and reloading ,damage per clip really bad . No hope in comparison with ebcars .... Before it was a good scout now its its  a situational compared to other tier 8 light tanks ... 432 better.. 8 skill crew and feel so underpowered .... If you are not collecting pixels stay away .

Well it's not competitive, but it's an interesting tank to play due to it's uniqueness.

 

It has great camo, it's really tiny, you can use bushes and scrub that wouldn't hide any other tank, but it gets slowed down by wooden fences that wouldn't normally slow down a city car, let alone a small tank, and if you get 1 vs 1 situation with any other tier 8 light tank you are dead.

A have ram killed with 432 full health Even 90 more than once...

And the gun of course can't hit the side of the barn while being inside it!

:teethhappy:Who is for go-cart racing here?
The tank is a big disappointment. crapgun, lousy acceleration, lazy clip reloading, ridiculous penetration and dmg.

Well yeah, you can hide, sometimes, somehow. But the range of view is not that special.

Despite it having a good overall win rate, the EVEN90 is one of the least competitive premium light tanks you can buy.

 

Yes, it has very good camo and it's tiny meaning it can hide nearly everywhere. *BUT* WoT is a game about killing enemy tanks so hiding will ultimately bring you only so much is very specific situations.

In most games, you will want to engage enemy tanks (or defend yourself from them) and when that (much more common situation) comes along, the EVEN90 goes flat on it's face.

It has abysmal DPM (Tier 1 levels) and gun handling of a potato launcher as well as the acceleration of the Titanic on a shingle beach. When *ANYTHING* comes along, you'll simply die because you can not fight back properly.

 

The EVEN90 is great for the average passive player that likes to contribute very little (actively) to the battle, for the more offensive player this thing will very quickly feel artificially handicapped because it's offensive capabilities are pretty much none-existent.

 

Also, since it's a French autoloader, at least 1 shot out of every clip will either bounce or miss further crippling your effective DPM.

I really can't give any logical explanation why it is so, but I like to play with ELC EVEN 90; with completely banned Ensk and Himmelsdorf, of course.

It may sound crazy, but I think that sometimes it's good to have some time to think what to do next and to look at map a bit while Your tank is reloading. ;)

I can't believe what craptext I see here. ELC is, with EBR and 432, most OP tier 8 light here and on the 80% maps first and most important part of game is SCOUTING and STAYING HIDDEN. If we eliminate wheeled armoured vehicles, and lately we don,t see them as before, you are THE MOST OP TANK IN THE GAME. I talk about tier 8, not tier 9,10. I remember when my clan member gave me his account with many tanks, most liked tanks from his account were SQunk and ELC, great tanks if you know their role and I as a bot know it.

Top-7 on the team by experience and you'll get a x3 crew multiplier for that one game.

That camo was given away for free awhile ago. Shame you missed it. I have it on my T-10.

 

£38 for the tank... Whatever WG say it's inflated with stuff that you may or may not want. If I had a voucher that worked with gold I might have considered trying out Johnny 5. I bought Cherry On Top with 30% off and bought a Panther 8.8 with gold also on a discount, mad but I like the tank :amazed:

Hmmm, do I want to spend money on a light tank that's 100% inferior to another tier8 French "light" ?
