Has anybody played their Crusader much since it got increased to a T6? I was playing mine the last few days for the x5 bonuses and battlepass +100.

 

I'm really struggling to see what use this tank currently has going for it? Pathetic damage, speed not amazing, fairly slow turret speed. I always thought it was crap even against other T5s which was why I dumped it when I first reached it but now going against T7s and T8s in it, it is pretty much a free kill for the enemy.

 

Are we supposed to play it as some sort of defensive spotter that just hides and doesn't do alot? It isn't quick enough to be played aggressively.

 

What do other players think that have played it.

I haven't tried mine since the changes but I suppose there is at argument that at least it has been reclassified back to a light once more

Personally I can't see that it has much going for it now

It should be a medium and back to tier 5, thankfully I no longer play this game anymore due to the plethora of fowl ups in both this and Warships.

Crusader at tier 6 is an April 1 joke that went too far.

Honestly I find it more fun now than when it was a tier 5 med. Its alpha is low. But the DPM is still higher than anything else in the tech tree. You can bully any light, even a Type 64 in a 1 on 1. But the pen is a tad low. So vs more armored targets, you need to flank or even aim a bit when circling.

 

But... It's getting buffs. As they have seen the live data of the tanks that got a chance this patch. And this and the Covenanter are getting buffs. Heck even the new tier 5 med is getting a buff to his top speed. Covenanter is getting more alpha and pen on the Bofors gun. And they are all getting top speed buffs, inc the Crusader. Crusader is only getting dispersion and aim time buffs on the gun. But it will help.

The Crusader is still technically a medium though not a light tank, same with the Cov, just Wargaming screwing things up as they seem to be doing now for some time (like with World of Warships).

It was a POS at tier 5 why on earth would I play it a tier 6 even with a speed buff?

Its too slow to play as a light and simply outclassed.  But then again, by WG making it even more rubbish than it was at tier 5, its in good company with the other UK lights.

Still better than the british lights it's leading to. At least you can play golf with it

Wargaming is anti British

It's leading to the British LT line so WG logic says it must be "uniform progression".

 

So Crusader is crap now as well.

I think I was too quick to moan before. I have been playing it more and it is actually kind of fun. Still no crew skills so missing sixth sense is horrible but I shall persevere. Some of the T8 games are crazy though on certain maps

It was rare to see one at tier 5 and now I haven't seen one at all since the update.

They need to bring the Crusader's penetration, power/weight ratio and radio range up to par with the other tier six lights (which are already pretty weak as a class anyway) in order for it to be suitable. This was obvious from the start, no data collection really needed imo.
