Who else has been playing it since the buff? I decided to buy it recently and here are my impressions after 70 battles.

 

- Really not quick enough to do most of the maneuvering you're used in a medium tank — driving over to help an isolated teammate win a 1v1, get that super early spot, get that last bit of clean-up dmg.

- Camo feels good. Can stay unspotted after firing from bush once in a while.

- Modules health is an issue and engine and gun get damaged often. The gun issue is a little strange, but I think it may be because the tank has no mantlet armor and reds are aiming on turret center-mass. This makes it hard to run both speed boost and adrenaline, and I've abandoned the idea of running speed boost to help with the mobility problems.

- My overall numbers are ok compared to my other mediums. It's no Standard B, but the DPB is only 100-200 off from my tier Xs. Maybe I'm playing more cautiously knowing that I don't have the armor or the ability to run away.


Camo net is for cowards.

When did it get buffed? I must've missed that part of the patch notes. I haven't played the tank since early 2018.

Few months ago. They buffed the rate of fire, dispersion, and also increased the ammo count of it.

I'll eventually get to it. I gotta grind a stock Chi-Ri and I have little incentive to do so. After that, I'll be able to tolerate the STA-1, Type 61, and finally get the STB-1.

You probably already know this but Chi-Ri maxed out is a beast. Completely worth all the free xp I dumped into it. Less than hyped about that Sta/Type 61 grind tho.
