I know that the M22 is only a Tier 3 tank, but it is so damn cute. Does anyone out there have anything to say about it?

 

Also, if WG were to release it for gold, by itself with (or without) a garage slot, I would totally spend up to 1000 gold for it.

 

Does anyone know when it will come back for sale?

I don't always club, but when I do, it's in stock Tier 9 Mediums.

it used to be fun pre nerf

 

not sure if it is fun now, I sold everything below 5...takes forever for me into get a game at low tiers

 

kind of like a toy mini sherman with some speed

 

 

I have run out of ammo two times in it...used to have low capacity

I think they buffed all the low tiers back to be closer to what they used to be. Not quite as good as it used to be I think, but it at least has 40 alpha now instead of 20 or 30. Not sure about the reload.

The pea shooter sucks. The turret bounces a little. It is fast in a straight line but turning is not easy.

It used to be very fun, but now that everything tier 4 and below has been Socialized into bland sameness, it is not fun at all.

It's cute, but not worth it.

I played the Locust once long long ago, before even the Kenny was released

It was easily one of the best Tier 3 light tanks. Mobility to rival a BT-7, better gun and DPM, and armor that was surprising troll, especially against Tier 2 and 3 autocannons (It could bounce a full T2 Light APCR magazine head on). After the nerfs I haven't played any Tier 3s, in fact Tier 4s even. I assume it's a pitiful ghost of its former self now.


Something something insert joke here

Let me summarize all the answers above my post:  I don't know.

Out of the tier 2-3's I kept after the low tier massacre, the Locust remains my go to when I need a quick, fun win. Although it no longer stands out from the crowd in terms of firepower or armor, the small size and gun depression keep it useful. Play it second line, letting other players take damage for you, and you can be surprised how much it can carry.

The thing is: in low tier games, there is often no first line. The noob meds and lights go camping and you have to do scouting yourself in whatever tank you are in.
