So yeah, I got the electric biscuit just months after it was downgraded to a literal biscuit...

 

 

The speed and acceleration was killing me. I compared it to the Chaffee and pumped its configuration up only to find it to be sup-bar mobility-wise against the Chaffee. I have both guns, and I know with its current state, the 75 would be the more viable option, but I wanna try out the 90 and experience a different type of scout gameplay.


Right now, I haven't touched it for a while. Played a few games with it and scored a 29% WR, for now. I had equipment, and since I can't afford a 100% crew, a dabbed some food on it. To those tankers out there who somehow made this biscuit work after it was nerfed 20,000 leagues down, how did you mates compensate for the mobility? Is the 90mm still worth it? Do I have to play it like a sneaky, paper TD? Is it now good as a support tank?

 

I plan to bank up EXP on this tank for the AMX 12t and for the wheeled scouts but I'm having some difficulties looking for its trump cards.

 


Thanks in advance :)

Pretty sure the 90mm still defines the ELC. With the 75mm it's an inferior version of the other tanks, with the 90mm it's a TD that can double up as a scout.

I watched a few ELC gameplays on YouTube and was trying to learn from em'. Took it for a spin and played it like how I normally play my Jg Pz IV.

Got a Top Gun lol. I guess I'm gonna have to frequently use them bushes and play with the view range.

It's definitely a shadow of its former self.

The 75mm is workable, and I find it's more reliable, especially as an active scout. 90mm you have to play as a TD, and you're still likely to miss. 90mm and active scouting isn't a good idea; you can't even hit something 20m away with that kind of bloom.

I find early game play as an active or passive scout - look for assistance, not damage - then mid game TD then late game yolo giggle.
4. Why not swap the Chrysler K? We've been able to swap Skorps, 13 57s, 41 90s. I don't understand why the Chrysler is an exception. They have even been able to swap Chryslers on other servers just not on ASIA. I'm willing to spend credits/Gold to tank barbie my Chrysler if someone swaps it. It costs WG nothing but you might get some revenue out of doing it.

I'm using it to get some xp banked and its a TD then a scout. Its far from the tank i remember playing before.

 

Get to good forward positions spot, pull back and double bush before firing - your acceleration is limp and you will not be able to shoot and scoot. Its shoot and dawdle. Return fire will kill you if you don't double bush.

 

Longer distance the shells also seem to dip a lot. I found aiming a bit higher than i usually would seemed to help.

I never used the 90 mm before and after , 75 mm felt more like an all round gun and I stuck with it till I got bored and moved on .

It might not be as good as it was before but when I played through it I had a blast, used the big gun which was good fun and concealment is great

I've done that three times now Thom. Twice I've [edited] up and converted the XP.

^^^ I feel your pain man.

Got a bad case of passion fingers with the discounted XP conversion recently - didn't help that I had a bunch of x5 missions left on the ELC EVEN 90 and was using those a lot...

It feels like the nerf bat was overly hard on this one. The loss of speed, and especially the acceleration, has turned this once loved tank into a dog. I could not play it like a td anymore. Handbrake turns are just not what they were. On plus side can still get decent passive spotting from it, as it still hides well.
