The Lorraine40T doesn’t even make the chart. Something needs to be done to its gun handling in order make this thing valuable in the current meta of shorter matches. The 20 second reload is simply too long in these brief games. There is, however, more that hampers this vehicle. 
 

Keep the lack of armor, huge size, camo and all soft stats the same. All are workable. Where this tank falls down, primarily, is due to:

  • poor gun depression & elevation (many of the rather ‘normal’ spots are unworkable; doubly so if the enemy rushes in below your lousy max gun depression.)
  • loooong reload, as measured in glacial cycles
  • reticle bloom after firing or movement. This should be quicker as one is reloaded before the reticle settles, thereby lowering actual DPM. 
  • there’s also something goofy about its AP penetration. Too many well-aimed shots, shots which display as clear penetrations on the hit skins, bounce. This is game-breaking for a tank of this nature. I’ve had entire clips bounce for no damage, as recently as yesterday, which were perfectly aimed at clean targets. So there goes 30 seconds or more, 1/6th of a match and now having to hide from an alerted enemy. 

Although burst output delivers a theoretical 900 Alpha, this is seldom realized. Too many shots bounce. Too many potential shots go unfulfilled due to poor gun depression/elevation issues. 


 

Proposals. There is no need to implement all of them. In order of positive impact:

  • make it an auto-reloader 
  • shorten the reload time if left as an auto-loader. Perhaps 13-15 seconds. 
  • ​increase the allowable angles for gun elevation & depression
  • decrease the aiming time 
  • decrease bloom when moving the turret
     

My next video is on the Lorraine and it has been a real chore to produce. It is very rare to carry in this tank as the useable/actual DPM is very low. It is even more dependent upon your team staying alive than the e25 is. That’s saying a LOT.

Droodles recently declared it to be the most difficult tank to play in this game. I have to agree. I call it “The Struggle Wagon”.  A player simply feels exhausted after playing 2-3 rounds of this worrisome beast. It really should be a battlefield terror. It is currently a battlefield rarity. 
Does anyone actually want a 30 minute Lorraine video? Well, yer gonna get one. Putain de merde, ce char est fatigant.

 

I've always said that the Lorraine is one of the most stressful tanks to play well. I'm not saying it's a bad tank or that it needs a buff, I actually think it's pretty good where it is. Maybe not ideal, but definitely acceptable. But to get back to it being stressful, it really is. Having to balance the largest clip on a medium at Tier 8 in addition with the massive reload and being a paper tank is just hard and it's why I don't play the tank often, despite producing decent numbers in it.

Ribble stripe, I have a suggestion that you can buff E100 face armour of the turret and Amx 30 b Alpha damage should buff little bit . T22 medium also should have little buff and put it in the shop this weak  without crates, because many people wants that tank . Also fv215b needs little Alpha damage buff, because it is the lowest Dpm in Wot tier 10 heavies . BTW, can i have a press account, so I can try to find those tanks are worth it or not these days for people buy it or not . I hope you can accept my idea , Thank you.

I just realized that the amx30b doesn't even show up on the charts. That might be due to it having a super low playerbase, but it might just be that mediocre.

While we are buffing light tanks...

 

What do you think of a buff for the Type 64 and T21? Both of those tanks took 110% of our skill to play well before the heavy buffs, and now with tier 5, 6, and 7 heavies getting more HP, in addition to the extra armor multiple of them got several updates ago, it has gotten very challenging to play the Type 64 and T21 with good results. I really love my T21 and regularly play it, but it is very challenging to keep up with the meta with 128 mm of AP penetration (and only 125 mm of pen on the Type 64). These are the lowest penetration numbers at tier 6 (for non-auto-loaders). Now that heavies have more armor, Type 64 and T21 drivers have to spend more time aiming at weak spots (exposed to enemies while we're doing so), and now that heavies have more HP, we have to spend more time overall with our guns on target (again, we're exposed to enemies for longer). Overall, the Type 64 and T21 are fun to drive, but they have become very challenging to use. I think a penetration buff for these two tanks would be awesome. Is this a possibility?

 

Stay healthy, and happy tanking everyone! :)

It's not the RNG, the MM, the diameter of your shell, the thickness of your armor, or the number of premium rounds you carry that counts ultimately; it's the courage in your heart, the calmness in your mind, the hope and faith you have in your team, and the way you use what's at your disposal that truly determines Victory.

Hey Ribble, can you guys please throw some love in the direction of the T28.  Either armor(buff or remove the chin so it matches the T95), speed, traverse, gun depression, dispersion . Something!

 

Tank is so slow, you end up taking lots of long distance shots, but the accuracy is so poor so many end up missing.  Then gun depression and traverse is so bad that when you do get into combat you've got to work overtime to try and get the gun on target.

Tortoise and T28 need buffs badly

Tortoise could use more frontal armor; many guns can pen it frontally with AP without an issue.

T28 either needs the lower plate removed, or it needs the lower plate buffed considerably.

Agreed, I still see the tort every once and a while, but its been a hot moment since I've seen a t28. It's like observing a mythical creature roaming around in the wild when seeing one of those in a match.

WoT blitz is better than WoT PC imho because no arty and +/- 1 mm.
