I'm currently fooling around with the Crusader in an effort to achieve an "M" or a "1" plus 1-3 marks on every tier 5+ light tank. I only have a "2" on the Crusader and only need to mark it, the t12, and the Chaffe and I will have completed my exercise. 

 

In playing the crusader though, I find the 360m of view range to be quite lacking/underpowered for this tank. It needs some view range love...perhaps 380?

 

please sign here to petition a view range buff for the folks grinding through mid tiers:

 

 

I completed my goal of getting an M or 1 and 1-3 marks on every light tank tier 5 and up in the game (unless there is a premium or two I don't own).  Had a really nice run in the 12t today. In 23 games, I went from 24% to 65% and got the "M" twice during that run.

I think it plays more like a medium doesn't it get +2 mm instead of +3 best I remember please correct me if I'm wrong. Maybe give it 380 but it's on par with the other tier 5 mediums right now.

Doesn't really need a view range buff, but I'll take one anyway!

Compare this to other tanks like the t34 or pz IV  with 350 you have better view range

I would rather have the increase and receive scout matchmaking (+3)...it's a fun tank but I would like to find a reason to keep it.

Best option would be to give it the same 370m view range that the M7 gets, which plays like a far better Crusader.

 

View range felt lacking as hell, but to be fair there's not a single thing about the Crusader that doesn't feel that same way.


Garage : 

'Imagine if this forum had only players who actually win more than lose trying to tell others how to play. Would be the best forum ever. Instead, we have a bunch of morons who lose more often than not trying to tell their betters how to play their tanks.'

'The term "casual gamer" is actually not accurate enough anymore to describe what the larger market is like. They want the illusion of accomplishment, but not the effort associated with it. The players aren't really doing anything, something else is doing it for them, and the player takes the credit for it.

the penetration seems decent but the alpha is poor IMO. I'm not failing to pen too many tanks

I play mine like a Medium and have had some decent runs in it.

I would be all for a view range buff.

Or just reclassify it as a medium.

Either way ... the Covenantor and Crusader were nice surprises when I started this line.

Honestly I'd rather an accuracy buff, as the movement dispersion is what kills the tank for me.

 

View range would be nice too.

Doesn't it have really good camo? If you can get closer before being detected, you don't need as much view range. I would be down for a buff though.

Yes...camo rating is pretty high, but generally, I don't have "sneaky" skills on any British crews because they don't really have any great hidey tanks. Let's just say the combo of 360m and no sneaky skills has me unable to get to some of those special spots that the tier 6-8 scouts can get to.

It is the only tier 5 light with normal MM, so that's why it's a bit UP.  When the light tank re-balance comes the Crusader becomes a Medium and the US M7 becomes a Light.

If you want to be one of the 47 Ronin check out our recruitment post and then send me a message.

It plays and gets matched up like a medium but still gets the on the move camo bonus. Tier V keeper for me and the only tank I spent the effort 3 marking.

The right rear track sprocket was so distracting. I absolutely hated this tank with a passion. I loved the ones before it but I hope this is the worst of the line. Cromwell is researched and sitting patiently.
