Took a gamble and got the AMX 30 1er Prototype and took it for a spin. Recorded some games stock and then fully upgraded to show you the difference between the two and if you're going to have fun playing it.

 

I've done some videos on the new maps and also how the view ranges are affected so stay tuned for them being uploaded to the channel.

i like it ig got both the 30 and 30 B both play similarly to each other as almost identical imo but the AMX 30 1st proto is a little better when maxed out and not seen a tier 10 match in it yet thou only played 6 games in it the gun and accuracy at range make it  real good sniper and on move ain't  bad either with stabs fitted add some coated  optics and a fully upgrade crew with a few perks and boom i am enjoying both but that mite ware off lol :izmena:

I mentioned in another post that I thought that it looked to be just as good as the T10 but not seeing a T10 game all the time was one thing that makes it better and then beast mentioned that PC players said it was like the T54 and E50 which I can see it being the case

I got mine and had enough free XP to fully upgrade it (not getting the last engine package...doesn't look worth it.).  I love this tank.  The gun punches through almost anything, and the accuracy is great.  Although, I am getting some hate from team mates when they don't understand how/why I disengage from a position that's getting overran and reposition 300 - 400 meters away and "kill steal".  But, being top of the leaderboard on a winning team makes up for the hate mail.

9 out of 10 dentist agree...CAMPING is the #1 cause of hate mail.

Sounds like the same hate mail when driving the Leo Proto A.

The moment I went through the front of an IS7 with standard rounds on different occasions is when I consider it a good tank.

Passive scouting is going to be the best option in most games ( more so in T9 and 10 ) and take advantage of the maps where you have lot's of open space to sit in a bush. I found it pretty pointless to engage anyone since the guns I couldn't put to good use unless I was going along side medium tanks that would draw fire.

 

Platooning is going to be good but I would say that going solo as a light is a better option unless you know the people that you are platooning with are going to support you as much as you are them. That being that when you light people up, those people are going to get shot

I'm on 360 for one so platooning is not happening any time soon (and I tend to be picky about who I platoon with) and passive scouting woudl be something I would love to do more often in this tank if not for other players deciding parking their tanks behind me or close to me was the best idea ever! :sceptic:

Addendum: Or deciding to harass me in a match to find out if I play on 360 or not while sounding like total spoiled git yelling at a parent that they were playing a game. I was considered asking if thye could put whoever they were yelling at on the mic so I could tell the parent to brick the console.

I'm on the 360 today (I'll be on my One later tonight).  I'm pretty good at light tanks (I have all higher tier light tanks except for the AMX Chaffee).  If you'd like to platoon up, send me a message.  I'm grinding the AMX 30, so you'll see your fair share of tier 10 games.

Same, all high tier LT's (except the BB), all fully equipped and perma-camoed, all except a couple have a workable crew.
