Hello,

 

I bought this tank but I am very bad in it, 41% win rates after over 120 battles, I have good crew and equipment and camo but I get spotted always and the gun misses all my shots. I watched videos of quicky baby and it doesn't help.

 

normally I die first in it also

 

 

Does anyone have tips for me?

 

UPDATE: it worked, lovely tips everyone and videos and I manage to get masters badge and my WR in it is slowly improving

Find a bush and hide in it. You're tiny so a twig with a leaf will be enough. The gun only works up close so you need to be patient and wait for your opportunity to catch someone out.

Tank is very weak to EBRs so don't play in such a way that an enemy EBR can catch you or do evil stuff to you unless he severely over commits  (at which point you hope your tanks behind actually can shoot and maybe even hit him).

I played the ELC Even 90 as a pimped passive scout...

 

Only got 57.38% WR after 237 matches, but am sure I could have done better as I learned the strongpoints of the tank and optimal map positions. 

 

Passive scouting and quick assaults simply became too boring after a while. 

 

It's a great credit maker.....

I am undecided about whether I should acquire this vehicle or not.

 

Let us just say as of late, my investments in Wargaming have not met my expectations and, having tried this vehicle, it is subpar, at best. Many questions go unanswered...

 

90mm gun with 220 alpha?

2.5s intra-clip reload?

2.6s aiming time?

30s reload for 3 shots in the magazine under the above conditions?

380m view range for a Tier VIII LT?

23€ for this a****ion?

I've had yolo wheelies drive past me in a bush at 70m out that never did spot me. You will see them way before they see you. So just find soft cover fast and hang tight. Then wait for them to do something stupid so you can sit in quiet where you want. It's one of the few amazing aspects with the ELC 90.

Ram your enemies, they will not expect that and die from sheer surprise.

You wait until the ebrs are dead then you go stealth mode to ninja some unexpected tanks that are split off from the enemy

You boost the tanks WR and camo as much as you can and passive/bush spot early on, and you seldom need to go mid map, I've had many battles with very nice spotting assist not more than halfway on to the middle of the map. Retreat and continue to be the eyes of the team if the flank falls. If you retain HP to the latter stages of the battle you can charge in and clip low HP enemies and then run away for a reload. I try to avoid 1 vs 1 at all cost unless final stages of a battle where there are no alternatives.

 

The tank also needs very little hardcover to be relatively safe so there tend to be a lot more possibilities for it in that regard compared to a lot of other LTs.

I had this as a rental and was surprised when I did well with it (with experienced AMX 13 90 crew). I bought it during the Advent countdown and continued to do OK with it. I had a bad few days with it recently, failing to win five yesterday. (One draw)

 

The gun is powerful but long reload. It should be used for defence and opportunistic attack. The long reload doesn't help. Elevation is bad that if you auto-aim on a tank you're chasing, the slightest changes in ground elevation can easily lead to a miss.

 

I need to rethink my play when I take it out again.

Boosting winrate is really that easy? Just do it!
