Would be really nice to see the M4 49 variants in the store ahead of the new French heavy line coming ‘soon’. Maybe a deal?

The Mle 49 has been almost given away in these "chests".... I saw several "openings" with the tank in it. Not sure if you can still get it that way...

I’m not sure that it is available now in the chests... I still haven’t gotten it, but not for lack of trying. Got plenty of gold but not the one tank I really wanted. Well that and the Skorpion G - couldn’t pull either of them

You are correct; I think I read somewhere they were rotating the tanks that were available in the chests. However, it is just a matter of time until you put your hands on it. They always keep coming back, so no worries.

 

I am actually wondering if I should keep buying the new issued ones at a hefty price, when I do not even have the time to play them. I bought the Audace, and did nothing with it so far.

I have to admit that I have this junk in my garage. The only reason I haven’t sold it is because it rolls out on contracts. I have a few premiums in the garage, but this one is by far the worst. I would describe the tank as a stock Tiger II with a dead gunner and dead driver. As soon as I get a trade in opportunity, it’s gone.

Then it sounds like you're playing it completely incorrectly.

I've had a good experience with the mle.49. With the wonky gun it is definitely not a camping tank though, that would be the Tiger B/King Tiger (which does better at tier 10). I've bounced upwards of 7k damage, but to do that one cannot stay still. Some rocking and wiggling is required. When being fired down upon the cupola is an easy target so being on level ground with one's enemy, or slightly elevated is ideal. The tank has great turret depression, use it. 

 

Because I play it closer to the front, VStabs and GLD are required, along w/rammer. When bottom tier or any tier really one needs to be able to aim in on tough target weakspots asap, but it still needs to hang back as bottom tier. Tier 8's should have a difficult time against 10's otherwise there'd be no point in the tiering system.

 

Tank's not for everyone though and requires discipline to survive in the deep end. I like mine so much though I gave her the special one-time use Twitch camo.

 

 

Hey. Look, I'm sorry about the Jammer thing, dude. I'm sorry. Hey. Hey. Anyway. May I see a screenshot of your AMX M4 49 with the Twitch camo skin? Would you upload it on this forum or on your Xbox One (or just send me a picture of it as a message on this forum)?

Bummer, need to aim at his hatch to have any hope of a pen, and if he's rocking that can be hard....

 

And poor you and your terrible armour makes things very easy for the chieftan, especially if you don't rock...oh wait... ;)

Hey man, no sweat on the Jammer thing, I have a bad habit of not looking at old threads or would have responded to this sooner.

I played it correctly, at tier 10 most of the time.

You definitively don't, but you'll cry stat shamer if I prove my statement.

Got it in a chest, the HMH version, and it is probably my favourite tier 8 heavy with the Tiger II. It takes all the M4 45 which is a solid tank at 7, gives it solid armour and a peppy gun. The aim time and slow reload is problematic, for what is reasonable but not world beating Alpha means, but it does mean it can scale up the tiers quite nicely in the right situation. I have taken on Chieftains and reload speed aside it was very competitive in a defensive situation.

I am cursed in mine currently, but have confidence it will turn once it stops putting me in endless X battles.

It is a total crap against tier X.

Total crap and i'm gentle.

You just can't pen, and you get pen like Nothing in return.

It is only good when top tier, fortunately it pays well, but that terrible cupola ruins any brawling attempt even at tier VIII.

Sounds like a bad WG joke, like hey we have a good French brawler...but don't do it.

 

Suggest adjusting your play style when in tier X.  As others have said, you won’t be able to auto pen a tier X heavy (from the front with normal ammo - can’t think of a tier VIII heavy that can?), but 232mm of pen is enough on weak spots and easily able to damage most tier X mediums.   I have this gun on the AMX 50 100 (auto loader variant), and it’s better many other tier VIII guns in terms of pen.

Just got 1 in the Warchest, over the weekend. I always wanted the tank but don't spend gold on heavies usually. So I was happy to get it. It is a fun tank. I was in tier 10 matches all weekend in all of my 8s, so maybe it was just some bad MM. Hopefully when I play it this week, I'll get some better match-ups and see what it can do. Cool tank though.

Man….

AMX 50 100 has a way better mobility wich means repositioning/flanking solutions that AMX M4 49 does never have, 232mm pen was enough...in 2012 , now there are way too many super armored beasts that are nearly invincible until you have at least 250mm penetration even aiming at weak spots, i have tried an object 257 today, shot everywhere i could full regular and APCR, all i could do is detrack him once then he rushed at me (because yeah he is faster…;) and i couldn't do [edited].

When you can't do [edited], you know Something is wrong with your game.

I think you are being unrealistic asking for more pen on the AMX M4 49.  How many tier tier 8 heavies have more than 232mm of pen? (On the standard AP round).   I can’t think of one (most are around 220mm).

 

Yes, the OBJ 257 (and others at tier 9+) have spaced armour, but that’s why you need to focus on weak spots (lower plate; pike nose when angled; front drive wheel etc) - same as every other tier 8 heavy when they come up against them.

I'm litteraly not asking for a penetration buff, but a MM adjustment, because at tier IX this tank is not that bad, but i'm sorry, at tier X most games i've had were pretty low damage or pure humiliation, i had some good matches here and there but overall at tier X this tank does not compete at all.

Too slow to stay away, if your team push you can't catch up in time and you have the worst scenario possible AKA blank Victory.

Or you try your luck with the pack and most of the time opponents target you  soon as your show one bit because they know you are foam armored, and they never fear your shots because even if you do penetrate your alpha is a good trade.

Yes they do that, they trade damage, and you just can't prevent them from being crazy or stupid, sometimes i get killed and the guy gets destroyed right after.

 

I have no fun playing this tank at tier X, and it is nearly half the games i played with it, i'm just asking for having fun with a tank i payed 50$ is that too much to ask ?

Looking at the gun stats in this thread, I am thinking “Wow, that’s awesome!  The aim time and accuracy are better than my IS-M, the T-32 as well as the IS-3, which is well regarded. Other than the T-34, I cannot think of a Tier VIII heavy gun that beats over 230mm of penetration.” 

 

I get it, the armor might be a bit sketch. That said, the gun is most definitely not the problem with this tank. This tank strikes me as a French cousin to the T-34. The armor is functional if circumstantial and the gun is strong for the tier.

 

Some of the problems lamented here are common heavy tank problems when low tier - you don’t have the armor or the gun to stand up the big kids any more and you go from bully to bullied. Welcome to World of Tanks, working as intended.
