Is the Tier V Crusader just bad? Or is it just so bad for one of the only two lights in its tier?

I don't always fight, but when I do, I am Russian bias.

I recently repurchased the crusader to rehab it from earlier horrible stats.  I have found that it is actually quite good, and a lot of fun to play.  Mobile, good dpm, workable pen, good gun depression.

Yes, but the Armor? you drop HP as fast as a bug getting squashed by a foot.

>Crusader

 

>Bad

 

Pick one, you can't have both. The Crusader is absurdly good compared to its real life counterpart, which would disintegrate if something so much as a comatose person sneezed at it. It has a very trollish armor profile, especially against Leopards.

 

Apply standard light tank tactics though. Don't get stuck in the thick of it.

Don't get hit.

 

I know that sounds flippant, but I am finding that this is the key to a great many tanks. 

 

For the crusader, use its mobility and gun depression to avoid getting shot.

Crusader was one of my best tier 5 tanks actually.

 

Everything that cheasesteak said, plus the rof. It really adds up, doing 90 dmg to a tank every 3 secs. They ignore it at first because "It's only 90 dmg, ain't gonna kill me." And then 10 secs later the guy is nearly dead and has to vamoos. Just gotta put yourself in a position to use the high rate of fire.


Mmmm, I like fishyysss...

I remember seeing a KV-1 almost lose to a Crusader when both were the last ones standing last night. I was going to lose my mind if he lost.

The crusader is quite good. Can't carry alone, but if your allies can hold their position, the crusader can dish it out better than most from the flank and rear.

Flank, use your mobility, and whatever you do, DO NOT hitpoint trade.

It is the best tier V tank. No questions. 

23.5 RoF * 90 alpha = 2115 DPM. All you need, but in case it isn't enough, you've got mobility, gun depression, and light tank camo.

No, the Crusader actually played masterfully. He baited shots, targeted the KV-1's tracks, did some amazing peek a boom... The only reason it was so close was because the Crusader clearly knew what he was doing.
