Hello,

 

If you guys haven't tried the new valentine at tier 3 you must, I love it at tier 4 bt at tier 3 this really dominated, with the 2pdr gun, (the 6pdrs suck) this thing literally is a mini matilda

 

One of my favourite tanks in the game

 

I run with spall liner and coted optics

Not sure about the spalls, as it's only a Light, but I agree that's it's very effective and that the 2 lbr is best.

Get these in a platoon and your cooking on gas, alongside the tier 4 Matilda, some might say borderline OP, and they are free:coin:

Two problems with the Valentine:
1. It's painfully slow

2. Meeting another Valentine

 

...... but I do enjoy playing mine :)

Its also quite fun as a sort of anti seal clubber, i.e. you can get sprayed with a full clip from a PZ1C and take 4hp of damage while getting a couple of solid hits on him in return.

I had pretty decent results in my Val when it was at Tier 4.  It was never as good as the Matilda but was still above average

The 57mm guns have now been nerfed and the 75mm option removed, but otherwise it seems about the same now as it did then.  The 2lbr is a good gun; and it no longer sees Tier 5 & 6 opponents

I'm not sure that WG really thought this one through

I agree, run it with optics/spall liner and just cruise around

The val 2 is super good at t4 too - but it does require a lot of gold to be viable.

No sure where you have been, but people moved on from the Pz 1 C as the T3 clubber.

Excellent armour makes it immune to all tier 2 and 3 seal clubbers like the Pz 2, M2 light and Pz 1c, on the downside its slow as hell and overall DPM is piss poor.

You have to fire 100% gold to make it work.
