i think the grind up to the better, higher tier french tanks is a proper grind and i also think the french tanks are very situational. That is, if you can use the terrain to your advantage or stay out of sight of the enemy (not easy with the sucky default view range)they have some very effective guns and speed. Against this is the fact they have a very long reload (once you get to the auto guns) and a complete lack of armour.

I haven't driven it but it doesn't seem like a very crap tank... Difrent, yes, but a few players I've seen as put that thing to good use and been seriously lethal.

It takes a while to get used to, at least for me.

Once you know its strength and weaknesses and you know how to exploit them it is a great tank to play.

12t fast scout, small
amx 75 fast arty <killer>, small
amx 90 fast, agile tank, small, proper gun, most fun tank

....
Lorraine. Just one thing: BIG, its a <removed> nightmare, in a bad way for the one who drives it. Too big for some fast forward scouting/<killing>, Big target + zero armor = fail

and then after the lorraine is the batchat?????? AFTER????? bat chat is a amx90 on steroids, why the <removed> does it comes AFTER the lorraine. Grinding up to the bat chat is pure pain so far... its my most hated tank this <removed> lorraine. YES IT SUCKS.

Dont worry about what people say. Its a nice tank. Not as good as the previous 2, or at least I dont think so. Your damn big with a 45 sec reload time or something(seems like forever) so no one will miss you. And ofc you have no armour. It can be utter crap, but if you can get some cooperation from your team you can do great things with it. But for solo adventures it is hopeless. Anyways I like it  :Smile-playing:

Thats how I felt at first about the tank.

Now I get the hang of it I love it.

Where it all goes wrong with this French Light/Medium line is that you have to change your play style half way.

Lorraine needs complete other tactics than the lower tier lights.
Just as you had to adebt your play style when going from AMX 40 to AMX 12t.

Take some time to get used to it and find a play style that suits you before writing it off.

Out of my own experience I can tell you its absolutely worth it.

Lorraine is an excellent tank, especially when fully maxed and with the 100mm. It can murder IS-4's E-75s and even some T10's when played right
extremely maneuverable with the last engine

games like this below are more or less common in lorraine.

enjoy this tank while it last coz it is OP and will be nerfed as Overlord already mentioned.... Even I had it elite I was using 90mm coz it fits to me better. 100mm gun is too slow in reload for me.

Does it resemble any way to the 50 100? I mean I pretty much like that tank, even learned how to handle the reload on 100mm. I also do love the 13 90, but I really don't know if I should buy a lorraine yet.

So basically you are saying that the Lorraine is bad because of its size but then you complain that BatChat, which is a lot smaller and should be better by your standards, comes after it. Does not make a whole lot of sense  :lol:

I don't know how well fully upgraded Lorraine performs, but at the beginning it is nightmare. Huuuuuge, can't bounce tier 4 scouts, one shooted by hummels, ridiculous module and crew damage (common to all tier 8 meds) and second 90mm canon isn't very big upgrade from Amx 13 90. I had started this tank with ~55k of saved free xp to get easier start, but it still took me more than 20 battles to get maximum xp per battle with it, of what I have with Amx 13 90 on average. Major downgrade so far, hope 100mm and 230 extra h.p. can make a difference.
