I spy with my little eye a tank that, while statistically doing fine, is completely uncompetitive in terms of DPM, gun handling and mobility.

 

When you like being passive and not actively taking part in any game you play, this tank is definitely for you.

However, if you like to have a material impact on your matches by actually damaging enemies or carrying games frequently, this is definitely not the tank for you.

 

Extreme camo is a nice gimmick but in the majority of cases, it will not win you matches. You need viable offensive capabilities for that, unless as I pointed out you like to rely on your team for your victories instead of on your own performance.

Basically a 1 trick pony, it is the best passive spotter in the game.

everything else is just bad, bad gun handling, attrocious reload speed, tank is very light so you often get rammed to death.

it has decent speed but the wheelies totally outperform this tank.

premium EBR will eat you like little sandwich.

But interesting tank, definitely interesting and unique.

A matchbox with traks, one HE from a wheelie and it has half of its modules out.

Do not buy any light tank while wheeled tanks exist in the game. Yes, this is small sneaky and cute tank, but EBR is just so much better.

 

This tank needs serious DPM buff, mobility and gun handling buff. Every battle you meet EBR on the opposite side and every battle they will outperform you. There are only 2 maps where you might get better results, but that's just gamble.

 

If you really want tracked tank and not wheeled, buy 432.

 

Edit: this tank might show up in the bond shop just like Patriot because it's out of meta

For me mobility is the main issue with it; the pick up speed (ground resistance) is very poor. When it gets hit, it's a sitting duck unlike the wheelies which can usually continue driving. 

 

If there are many wheelies, it's rendered near useless until the wheelies are picked off / are zipping other parts of the map.

 

A buff on reload time would be useful. And base DPM of 1150 is way too low. Would be fun to bring this little tank closer to the wheelies.

 

As you say, it's edge is camo and size combined, it can literally hide in a tiny bush... until a wheelie zips near it. Gun depression is

Possibly. 

 

Also it's available in the trade in option. Because of low gold value, you can get it for cheap by trading in a heavy from black market for example. I paid only 500 gold and the credits for the T34B (8M?)

What is the point of playing or buying any normal light tanks now when you got wheelie bins running about and ruining everything..... I would of recommended getting it before but not now due to that fact and im still feeling bitter about it as i used to really like playing lights.

 

It always makes me laugh though when i see this thing next to other tanks as it just looks like a remote control toy, so tiny :D

While statistically worse than a majority of light tanks at this tier, I love this tiny toy car, with 62% WR it DOES have an impact on open maps, city maps are pretty mediocre, can't do much besides support. And I don't like meeting the OP wheelies. Nerf hammer must arrive soon.

The good:

 

Camouflage

 

The bad:

 

Gun handling

DPM

Acceleration

Traverse speed (both tracks and turret)

Survivability

And many more, the bad list is endless, really

 

AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE (unless you enjoy playing tier 8s while feeling like you are driving a tier 2)

This might be unpopular to point out, but traditional light tanks and wheeled vehicles have different gameplay and different roles on the battlefield, they do not replace each other. The fact that wheeled vehicles are on the battlefield doesn't make this tank useless. :) But it is a vehicle with a peculiar play-style, so I would only recommend to people that know how to make it work to get it!

Although it's a light tank, I wouldn't compare it directly with the EBR or other wheeled vehicles.

It has a different role and very passive playstyle.

 

If you like the AMX ELC bis and you want a sneaky spotter in higher tiers, then the ELC EVEN 90 is a good choice.

DONT BUY!!!!! THIS TANK IS NOT WORTH THE MONEY AND IS UNDERPOWERED. EVERYTHING SUCKS ON THIS TANK EXCEPT CAMO. DPM, SPEED, ACCELERATION, GOING IN TO THE HILLS AND SMASHING LITTLE FENCE STOPING YOU!!! IT NEEDS TO BE REBALANCED BECAUSE THERE WAS NEW WHEELED FRENCHES.

How many matches have you played in the ELC against wheelies?

It's not far off a 1-trick pony, and if some muppet in an EBR decides to yolo rush and proxy spot you when you are out in the open with terrible acceleration to get away - it's a quick trip back to the garage.

 

As someone else put it - "it's better to wait until the EBR mini-game is finished, and then go about your normal game"
