So.  Can anyone explain to me why I should bother spending a single credit upgrading this tank?  Tried it out last night (yes, only once) and it couldn’t hide and it couldn’t run.  Nor does it hit hard enough to even make the Tier VII Lights nervous about chasing it. 

 

Maybe if they doubled the armor thickness and/or gave it the stock autoloader from the Tier IX Bat Chat?  But as it stands the skill floor is so much higher than the fun ceiling of driving something with the size and armor of a Greyhound Bus that I’m really regretting the decision to add it to my garage. 

 

Has my loathing at first blush been reasonable or is this a gem that is beyond my limited skill set?

It is probably the best drive in the field. But then again we are not racing cars.

“If you know the candle is fire, the meal was cooked long ago.”  Or in more common English, “Whatcho talkin’ ‘bout Willis?”.  It’s not the fastest or most agile, so I’m not feeling the race car analogy.  Most Light tanks at VII and VIII hit just as hard and can actually avoid return fire. Even with camouflage, camouflage net and the TD camo skill at VII, I got spotted the moment a red got LOS. And then the HE rain fell. 

 

With the time and gold I dropped to get the tank, I want it to work. I’m just not sure it can.

As a player with 800+ battles in the CDC (possibly even 1k due to rated), Ive been a long advocate of it getting a 105 mm, or perhaps even a 122 mm autoloader. It really needs something to give it punch. In its current state, anyone who rushes it can win. And thanks to SK8XTRM with his recent YouTube video,  practically every TD now knows to load up HE.

I've reached a point in my life where I've decided I'm not old. I'm actually 20, but with shipping and handling!

I think the CDC deserves it's own unique style at tier 8, while being actually good at it. From the numbers it actually seems fairly close.

 

Improve the ground resistances, and improve the gun handling. I'm sure it'll be fine.

 

If that's still not enough, 240 alpha.

​reasons why amx cdc ( ACDC for short ) is junk. and most useless tank in that game

 

I will not compare it with drakula ... since drakula will win in ANY  aspect . lets compare cdc  with other T8 . ground resistance will NOT help

 

1. one of the worst turret rotation speeds in tier- uep . maneuverable pvp versus RU 251 and you are in hangar . since turret barely rotate . other lights will kill  you same way .

2. one of the worst traverse speed . even slowpoke pershing have better traverse

3. well . SIZE ... xD

 

slowpoke traverse  kill one of the main features of acdc - engine . I assume wg balanced that junk as BUSH HUGGER ( e25 with turret ) . since only that role it can perform barely sufficient

 

WG refund TIME I SPENDED TO GET THAT JUNK !

I’m going to give the tank another try with the 5.0 buffs and we’ll see if it is any better.  I still get the feeling that it’s better suited to gun and run on the full size WoT maps than the knife fighting ranges of Blitz.  But hope springs eternal and all that sort of crap. 

 

If not...  Welll, I’ve got plenty of tarps in the garage to have it join the mothballed brigade. :trollface:

It is the size of a small yacht with armor that a tier 1 could pen (looking at you MS-1) The gun is way too UP for a tank like this. No wonder this thing never made it out of blueprints (this tank is pathetic. I only use it for training rooms)

Just your average noob

She sure is pretty though!

I won't spend a single bent nickel upgrading her.. she's for sitting in the garage looking pretty, all the while wishing you had her younger, hotter sister, the Drac.

I hope to goodness that is a misprint

 

a 122 mm autoloader with 1200 burst damage and good speed and gun depression at tier 8 is NOT okay

 

The AMX 50100 is not as fast as the CDC, with less gun depression, an even bigger profile and equally worthless (though less HE-able) armor


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