For those of you who already have it, is it worth it?

 

B-C 12t chassis tends to burn a lot and this one is slower.

Circon had a few fires the first day tbh. About one every 3rd game or so. As he ran food over an extinguisher, he did notice it. But still says the tank is fun.

I would have went with "The Grotesque Challenge".

Skill4ltu, DezGames, QB and  4tankersAndDog all agree its a good tank BUT with a high skill cap, so most average  players will be disappointed/frustrated with it. You can’t play it as a full light (no camo while moving) but it can scout. You can’t play it as a medium because it has no armor and a long clip reload and low accuracy. It’s a hybrid. Seems interesting to me. But I’ll probably suck at it :)

That's the issue. WG essentially made up a LT (which is why it has such poor gunstats) but called it a Medium.

The regular Batchat 12t seems better.

It plays much like a light tank, has camo on the move of 14.5% which is better than many light tanks such as Senlac or M41D. With my crew running food it gets 31% on the move not far of 37% of my pimped out 1357gf.

Stationary its actually better than the 1357 (41 vs 37%)

Speed wise feels like standard tier 7 light tanks, not quite up to tier 8 LT. Turning is poor so get ready to use handbreak a lot.

It feels like a high skill cap tank which makes it rewarding to play.

I got it early on with a 20% discount and then 4k combined got me two Mastery badges.. today got 5k combined a few times and only got 2nd class which shows what can be achieved.

 

The gun is derpy ... but close up and easy to trade and win with 720 damage. No point trying heavy armored tanks at range.

At the moment still learning the tank after 62 battles its 1750dpg with 71% win ratio, its almost better than my dpg of 1770 of the 703 II, still feel when I lose its down to me not the tank which is a nice feeling.

 

All in all a lot of fun :)
