It's probably the slowest light tank in recorded history (25 kmph downhill, 12 kpmh uphill) nothing about it seems exceptional and it is often frustrating to drive.

 

Add to that the  fact that I am a tepid player at best and what do you think will happen?

 

Well oddly enough apparently I will post a 60% winrate (which I never do) and my stats are going through the roof. This doesn't make any sense. I was expecting my stats to plummet during this grind.

 

Anyone else find this tank frustrating but some how highly effective?

Because it never sees tier 5 tanks. 

Youre always top tier.

It is a Valentine after all. Second only to the Matilda in armor. So going slow is it's thing. My gunner got out and started running beside the tank. But bouncing rounds is part of the equation as well. Just don't get to cocky in it. Plenty of tanks still out there that will ruin your day. Ruined mine plenty of times while pushing it.

I think he means the British tech tree original and not the Soviet lend-lease premium. But, I've been known to be mistaken in the past.

Same with valentine 2. Balancing- make it a medium (which it is) and also give it a higher alpha gun as in PC.
Once upon a time the vk 28.01 was my favorite tank.

I am indeed referring to the British tech tree Valentine. Sorry I could have been more clear.

It’s a beast high tier, low tier not so much. Very high pen low alpha, and crazy armor high tier. Not a bad tank imo

It could be worse, i got the Valentine II in a crate a couple days ago and I don't think I'll be driving it anytime soon with that horrendous gun. 51 pen on AP and 84 on APCR.:medal::teethhappy:

I mastered it in the first battle and the cannon is excellent. Killed 4 reds that battle. If you don´t take unnecesary risks, is a tank that can give you lot of kills.

 

Also the Valentine II is not bad. You will never be faced against higher Tier. Just fire and fire and fire when you see reds and you will end killing most of them (while they try to pen your armor).

Even though it's classified as a light, I would suggest it's the best all round tier IV heavy out there

in my experience when players do well in slower tanks that means they have the tendency to yolo otherwise... 

 

slow tanks just temper your initial (often stupid) rush
