Yeah funny...

 

Now at least improve the gun stats! Peaking with CDC will put you at the same risk for one 240 dmg shell as the prosecco for two shells. When you know you shouldn't stay out anymore for the second shot, thats the time the CDC needs to fire one shell. 

 

Edit: is this a challenge WG? At 500 downvotes you  will actually buff the CDC?

 

Edit 2: seems you get only 2 downvotes each... so the limit should be dropped to 15 downvotes for buff!

I kinda miss my CDC. :( For a goofy looking driving ammo rack, it was still a nice one to play.

At least WG has a sense of humour, a little dark maybe and with a touch of schadenfreude.

"...and a reliable gun"

 

I'm so sorry for all the noobs who will buy this. You can't advertise it in this way, it's misleading!:teethhappy:

You do realise this, by now, is a very underpowered tank which needs drastic buffs to make it competitive again right?

 

The CDC to all intents and purposes is a light tank with worse camo but more health, so it needs to play accordingly.

This means buffing the following elements:

- Ground resistance values need to be brought in line with Tier 8 light tank values, so no longer turning like the Titanic on a shingle beach.(0.9, 1, 1.55 from 1.44, 1.63, 2.88(!!!))

- Light tank gun handling, especially dispersion values. (0.12, 0.12, 0.10 from 0.19, 0.19, 0.15)

 

This would mean the CDC would become something interesting to play with a unique playstyle for a medium, unlike the artificially handicapped XP Pinata for the enemy team it is now.

True. But they are correct in that the tank is a fast responder. Too bad it's the one needing help when it gets there.

Rumour has it that you can hide a Tiger II behind this light dressed up as a medium....

So, April fool's day also comes with the offer of a fool's tank, 2 for the price of 1: you get scammed and offer WG a good laugh, while at it....

Thanks but no thanks. In todays meta, this tank is a pile of garbage.

To everyone who reads this, please save your money. This is probably the worst tier 8 tank in the entire game, yes you read that right. I refuse to sell mine but I haven't played it in years. Eventbough literally everything is bad on this tank, it's also made out of ammo racks. Oh and that power to weight ratio you though were good? Yeah the absolutely horrific ground resistances will make you forget that.

Even if this game wasn't going to be massively dumbed down by the crew purge I still wouldnt buy this tank.

By the way, I hate April Fools
