Hi!

I recently got my BC-25t and I find it quite frustrating to play. I'm an average player at best and find it quite hard to use. The most frustrating part is the awful gun handling (aim time and accuracy/soft stats), forcing the player to play more aggressively/at closer ranges, though the size and lack of survivability of the tank gets me killed quite often. Especially on city maps where it is hard to utilize the bush camo mechanics.

 

I know the tank is pretty popular in Clan Wars and such, though how does it stack up to the auto-reloaders in the game, as well as other T10 meds? Is it still viable in the current meta? Should it be played more like a medium/assassin or as a scout?

 

Please post your thoughts as I am interested to see if I'm just bad at playing it or if it isn't as legendary as it once used to be. Thank you.

You're 1-2 years late. It used to be one of the best tanks in the game, now it's out of the meta. 
It has no armor, too long reload, too bad gun handling to deal with the amounts of armor on the enemies and it's no longer the best scout with the introduction of T-100LT and then the wheeled vehicles. 

BC is no longer used in CW.

Do you expect it to receive a buff sometime in the future?

Not really, unfortunately.

Haven't played mine as consistently as I'd like (mostly "bc" I don't wanna ruin my stats) but it's still nice.

He only needs more ammo.

I can live with long aim time and reload.

More ammo and better gun handling. You can't have paper tank with bad gun handling in the current meta, it's just bad combination. 

Now that I think about it, isn't it funny that every high tier french tank has a potato launcher for a gun?

I sort of still enjoy mine. Occasionally. Definitely not the best t10 med anymore but I like it in a weird way.

Same.

 

You can still do nice things with it, but there are clearly better tanks, even if they don't have the same clip potental. However, fun does not have to equal playing the besterest tank, does it. :-)

The gun handling just gimps it at the moment,. plus as someone else said, some lights and those wheeled things make it pretty redundant. I took mine out the other night, won't be doing that again anytime soon.

sit back and bush camp.  wait for unsuspecting 430u to derp it's way to the front believing it's invincible.  Pop out, clip em with gold, kill him, run away laughing hysterically. Honk! Honk!

well i still play mine, but i still hate that gun, 2/5 derps into ground or wherever, every time pretty much :D

But then again i like elc even 90 as well and that gun is the worst gun of any tier 8 pretty much :D

Let's not forget RHM Pzw with 30 mm of armour and it's vulnerability to high velocity HE shells. It's also quite large, so easier to hit compare to some other LT's.

 

(I like the view range quite a bit)

 

I don't own the Sheridan, but with the big gun it's more for the memes I guess.

What is this notion that WVs can win a head on gun fight. they'll never ever in a million years kill a same tier tracked light in 1v1, let alone anything bigger than that. The only thing they're good for is assassinating low HP targets (aka one shots) and harassing tanks that are not paying attention.

Batchat can still be fun, but yeah bit out of meta.

 

Progetto 65 feels like a better version.

While every RU medium has great gun handling, very high DPM and good mobility :D

 

It's almost comical but the Batchat has been long overdue for an ammo-count and gun handling buff for 5 years or more.

 

But since WG is busy churning out new premium tanks and fiddling with mechanics that are fine as they are, I think we can wait a bit longer for one of the oldest T10 meds to become viable again.
