Wouldn't say it's better. It has more clip potential, but Lynx has more alpha, better pen and an higher caliber.

And since we are talking about light tanks pen and higher caliber would be rendered useless, it even has better camo and higher hp , it is faster too

Initially at least some of the techtree WVs were also supposed to have autoloaders, but WG scrapped that after Supertest or so. At that point the EBR 75 was already out though, and as we all know WG refuses to nerf premiums.

Well... the difference on most of it are too small to make a massive difference in most fights. Reverse speed and Armor are the only things it's superior on. As in 40 vs 13mm. The engine power is bigger as he weighs 2x more. But the top speed is the same forward, and the power to weight is more or less the same. Traverse is more or less the same when elited. Camo is only 0.85% better on the move on the EBR, and 0.11% when firing. With so high base numbers, it's not gonna make a massive difference again. Same with AP DPM, Lynx is higher, but not by much.

 

But, 90mm means more HE pen to counter tougher lights, and more to overmatch on the move vs lights with AP. And the EBR is faster in reverse and has a lower profile. So it depends on the situation.

Good question, same goes for the TVP VTU vs. the Skoda T8 premium!

Because the techtree doesnt have one - and if they had it - who in their right mind would buy the expensive premium one-shot version?

Why do you think basically all new premiums are better than their techtree counterpart? A worse tank wont sell as good as a OP one... Because money money.... And WG is as greedy as a... well, doesnt want another warning by writing it. But you know it.

Your answer is in the question? Is it unfair? Of course. 

 

These decisions are so short-term by the people who run this game. Yeah, they make some money from people invested in the game, but ultimately lose players who are fed up with pay-to-win. 

 

BTW, your thread will be shut down soon. The moderators don't seem to approve of people who criticise any aspect of this game. But, what can you expect from an eastern European game?

There's this thing called money, and to have people part theirs, you must entice them.

Except there's plenty of topics, not shut down, littering the forum, criticising the game, so I don't know why you would lie like that...

Because WG likes to release premium tanks that are superior to tech tree tanks so players will buy those superior premium tanks.

EBR 75 10 FL is smaller than Lynx which is a big bonus. Just a straight up upgrade.

The wider lynx, and more tank above wheel, makes it easier to hit imo.

Especially with HE and penning with HE.

to me i wouldnt really say easier to hit, but do agree on penning with HE as the hull is massively more paper and way less wheels/hull ratio that could absorb the HE shell
