Hellkitten is fine. I did well in it. No major buffs needed. Only a slight speed buff maybe. Working as intended.

Well, pay attention to the minimap, relocate often, etc. Teams can't die if you kill reds before they kill team.

 

Hate to interfere but it’s hard when your entire team disintegrates in under 1 minute.

I struggled with the tank thinking I was suppose to play it like a Cromwell then I figured it out.

 

You'll get there too :)

No idea why you think this needs a buff. Even I have aced this and my stats are awful. I have 77 battles on it now and I know I aced it like 10  battles back. Good tank.

The Hellcat is pointless, not absolutely terrible, just has no point. There are simply a dozen ways to get better results and be less frustrated (and of the great tier 6 lights, Jagdpanzer, etc). Yes, if your team and the other teams help you out 2k damage and be very relevant to the win is doable, but if your team decides to fight OVER the next hill you have to come in exposing your paper armor, if the other team refuses to show their flanks you struggle without premmo, if the other team sends a flanking light you are going to suffer since they will eat your 225 damage and then pound you for 450-600 before zipping away. If you slide out into the open you are vulnerable to many HE spewing nightmares made worse since your HP pools is nearly the worst at tier 6. 

 

Then the tank suffers from a MASSIVE meta game issue: A) your teammates are likely YOLO and you need a stable battle front to succeed, 2) the leopard, the KV2, French lights and "made up" (Drak, Helsing, Space marine) tanks flood tier 5-7 battlefield the debate will rage forever on their overpowered/balance, but they are without a doubt they all make your life more difficult, 3) the name, everyone knows Hellcat is the paper tank the goes boom with HE and can not turn its turret, at least some might not realize M-18 is the same tank. 

 

Suggestions do a little of some of this, speed of fire rate, give it an elite top seed again (75?), fake a little armor on it so that it does not suffer three calibre rule ALWAYS vs anything fired at it, change the name show to M18, or nerf the fake tanks that rule these tiers (and include the mostly made up leopard, french lights and nearly useless in actual combat KV2)

More speed would be nice, but that is the only change I would make.  Plays fine as is for me.
