A nice little reward tank with plenty of german rations to be used by your German crews. Question..... How do we play it ?  Its a light with thick armor for its tier and is a tad slow.

Also play on SG.  You will be playing World of queues to try and get a pref 4 game on AU.

Depends if you feel really dirty. PzB2 is probably better though.

If you get tier threes yes and you can machine gun anything apart from a 'tilly.  Your mobility is a problem but it is a light so maintains stealth on the move, all the better if you have a decent Russian light crew to run in it.

 

Like the B2 it is better played platooned (remeber it can only platoon with other Val IIS or a B2) as if you run into a clubber in a Luchs, or a decent tier 4 TD or a tilly you will be in trouble. Three of you however can usually sort them out.

I did this thing that involved not logging in. Was great. I ended up doing this thing called Steam Library trawling.

Valentine II has better armor layout than the PzB2 which has obvious weakspots that are actually weak. Most tanks would struggle to pen you even when un-angled. The gun is meh at best but the rate of fire and pressing the ''2'' key when facing another thick skinned tank solves most issues.

     

I'm not good at this game, its just that the rest of the server sucks~

Nope.  Shoot the Val 2 directly above the gun and its auto-pen with anything 45mm pen or above.

 

The B2 although it has weak spots, has a better (and smaller) turret and better sides.

Val 2 also gets worse pen in general.

The 200k Credits was fine recompense. None of the missions were a burden and I'm saving credits for a tier 10.

Yup, The val II has that 40mm armor hole around the gun - but its really a small target and low tier guns are not that accurate anyway. In fact, the PzB2 also has armor hole (though smaller, but even weaker at 30mm) around its gun. In turn, it has a large obvious cupola and hull gun weakspot (45mm). The thing about the B2 is that if they miss these weakspots, the armor scales drastically to 115mm+ thickness, resulting in good amounts of damage blocked. The Val II is more of a homogeneous armor layout that's equally thick all round and more suited for newbies.

 

Aka, for seasoned players who know how to angle/over-angle/not-stay completely still/bait shots in the PzB2 - its still undoubtedly the better clubbing machine. But for mouthbreathers or new players, the Val II with its decently thick-all round armor is the way to go - in which its speed doesn't allow it to go suicide off the start anyway.

you should have waited until it went off sale to get 200k credits for it. You got a garage slot too!
