so hello tankers, do you agree the alecto needs a buff in a number of things: traverse like it has a powerful engine and very poor armour so you would think it has good traverse.right? wrong. it sucks, 88 mm gun handling: even fully aimed the top gun has ghost shells and is extremely inaccurate with very poor pen even with prammo, do you guys agree? and also the reload on the 88 mm gun with full crew is 10 secs it should be 9.2 secs.

its tier 4, its probably ok

 

Most players will be nubs, have low crew skill levels, wont use cosumerables or have the tanks maxed out with spare parts.  Any buffs or nerfs in low tiers will have little effect,  Hence WR rarely does much to low tier tanks

It maybe could use a slight dispersion buff. It's on a Tetrarch chassis and has excellent mobility. I'd rather play it than the awful Valentine AT at a tier down.

 

That 25-pounder gun can work, I use it at mid to long ranges from concealment.

It is a bit weak in the WR department because it is hard to carry through for a win without a team and therefor not a long term keeper, but she does alright.

It’s a zippy little monster that will remove ½ to ⅔ of a target’s health in a single hit.  You belong in the middle of the second line, well hidden in soft cover.  With Calibrated Shells, Camo Net and a bush you can ambush kill nearly anything.  

 

The only thing it can’t do is hit point trade. Or survive an autoloader. But odds are that if you’re in those positions your team has already folded.  


The point of the game is to win.  The purpose of the game is to have fun.  They are not mutually exclusive.

In a 1v1, I almost beat a 183. Reason: it’s lower then a human stands tall. Some tier 4s couldn’t hit it if it were right in
Front of it, and tier 5, more then half don’t have the depression. And the Alecto has the gun of a Sexton (artillery)

I love derping the Alecto in my m4 Sherman. Leaves the poor TD with a handful of hitpoints and everything broken or injured
