Well, I love the gun on this 100, but the armor is terrible and 1 or 2 shots from a tier 9 take it out.  Now I see that the 120 has no more power in its gun than the 100 and a slower reload rate.   My WR is only 37% in the 100, and my overall wr is above 50% 

 

although I love the speed and the gun, I'm wondering if the grind is worth it or if I should just end the line here and just hold on to it in hopes they buff the machine..

I would say no more times than yes.  Up to you though.

I am now the #1 ranked E75 on the NA server!

50-120 is great. But don't play it until you have the top gun and engine unlocked. Or else you are in for a painful grind.

There is always next year.

50-100 lost all its fun factor when they removed the 4th shell, in my opinion it got much worse after that

I started playing the AMX 50 120 and like it so far. Unlocked the top gun, with free XP I had saved up, and now got the engine unlocked as well. Even though it has not armir, I like that I can have real impact in T10 games as a low Tier by clipping let say and IS7 for 1200HP when everything goes in or 800HP, when 2/3 shots go in (more likely), which isn’t bad ad all.

I play it with only first row of the equipment unlocked and wonder if this tank is considered spare parts worthy?  There is fairly little material out there (most of it when the line was introduced) and I think they buffed the interclip reload a bit, but nothing else.

I am guess that it is not likely to get nerfed, but who knows. The tank is probably regarded as a transient to the T10, which seems to get more playtime than the AMX 50 120. All opinions from resident experts welcome.

I disagree, the 50B and 50-100 are both very good as well. The tiers 5-7 are also decent. I think the 50b is way better than the 50-120. The line is pretty solid starting at tier 5

I thought the 50 100 was more difficult to play than the 50 120.  Yes the damage output is potentially the same, but you have to land four shots to do it with.  The only way they get worse is that they get bigger as you go up and the Glorious 50 B (the best tank in the game) has no armor on its big butt.

That’s what worries me (and holds me back) about the 50b.  Its side and rear armor is only thick enough to prevent damage while parking.  Otherwise all it does is justify to reds why they brought HE.  It feels like such a one trick pony.  You dump the clip and then pray the rest of your team doesn’t disappear during the epoch long reload.

 

I know there is more to the tank than that, but just looking at it on the tech tree sure doesn’t show it.

It is more than one trick.  It can ram, it can reposition, and it isn't a sure pen against mediums so it can draw some shots.  

 

But yeah its main strength is being able to strike down anyone with 1100 or less HP and being able to second line support the armored heavies or the meds.  The ability to go anywhere on the map is what makes it fun to play over and over.

Amx 50 100 stock is terrible (my opinion). I had enough gold to free dp up to the tier 9 so I did. Best decision ever. I love the amx50 120. It’s my favorite auto loader, it’s gun being instant fun

Whew,  not sure the top gun will really help that much.  The reload is even longer!  24 secs or so...

I loved when I grinded the 120. But if your gonna complain about no armour, then you will hate the 50b

I wish I had read this BEFORE I got my AMX 50-100. This tank does not suit my playing style at all. I just sold it and got back into my IS-3. I love my IS-3. I need armored back and sides. Thanks for all of the info. I do like my AMX M4-45. Feels like a heavium and suits me much better.

Yeah.  I got to the 50b and all it did was set in concrete my prejudices against the French autoloaders. They just suck.  Too long between shells and then a ~25 second long reload?  Combined with being as big and well armored as a barn, I just don’t see the point in these tanks.  And I’m certainly not going to waste my time putting spare parts on them.  Even the wacky British Heavies are miles better.  

 

It’s a shame because they offer such a different play style. But it’s just not a viable one IMO.  I think I’ll also just stick with the M4 45 as my top French Heavy.

I am liking the AMX 13 line much better. Faster, agile, faster reload. But I agree with you on that.  I dropped the 100 and 120 and went back to the 45 as my top in this line.  Way too many times against upper tier tanks and you are sitting their waiting for a reload while you are trapped.
