Since the AMX Chaffee was moved to tier 7, it should have tier 7 LT HP. Having 600 when all other tier 7 lights have closer to 900 kind of sucks. 10% xp buff doesn’t make up for that.

No buff is necessary. It meets the same tanks as before, nothing changed except for an XP nerf, partially compensated by the additional 10 % XP bonus.

Nothing else has changed, except for the Roman numerals it sports. It has literally the same matchmaking it has had since the light tank rebalance. Why change it now? It is a beast of a tank when used right. Just don't get shot.

I’ve been playing 1-2 games a night in it. 

Still as capable as ever except when top tier, then it’s a beast.

IT IS THE ONLY TIER VII LEFT WITH ONLY 600HP

 

It was OK when at least you had a few chance to find yourself in top tier VI battles, fighting against KV's Churchill etc... 600HP is 100% unforgiveness at tier IX, the second you make a mistake your game is ruined.

This means, on a tier VIII to IX you just got to sneak and do passive scouting with it, there is no surviving on active scouting because of any medium or ennemy scout encounter being one way ticket to garage..

 

My idea of a good balancing for this hybrid little beast:

1 - Put it back to tier VI and give it premium match-making to maximum tier VIII, a Chaffee hull have Nothing to do in battle with M46 Pattons, T-54 etc...

2 - Reduce its clip to 4 shots, in order to minimize its impact in a tier VI battle (against tier IV, V...)

Again...
When the amx Chaffee was VI before the tier IX and X Lights arrived it NEVER ended up top tier.
Worse: it met up to tier X
But still, some players managed to work around that and performed well in it.

Before being moved to tier VII it was a VI with a tier VII Matchmaking which meant it would always AT LEAST be in a game with one tier VII.

It was strongly advised you platoon up with tier VIIs because the risk of being in a tier IX battle would render your VI platoon members useless.

Now that the platoons have changed you simply could NOT team up with VIIs anymore, so this tank has been shifted to tier VII which changes ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about the tanks it would have to compete with because it already met all of them, while being VI.

The sole point that has been affected was the xp gain for killing higher tiers, this change has partially been compensated by an xp gain buff.

This is why nobody wanted this tank, except some fools that regretted it right after, or super players…

A one shot free target tank who would want to invest in it, at tier IX it is still two shot free target

We Don't care if some great players do well in a tank, Wargaming should not either, you can't make balancing by taking what the best players do as a measurement,

Because most players are average.

False i had some top tier games in it, totally unbalanced i give you that, against tier IV it was party time, this is why i recommend reducing its clip size.

I didn't play in a platoon since two or thee years ago, the friends i played with stopped playing thios game, or stopped playing on console.

Still i mage to finish nuber 1 in a lot of games i play with the Chaffee, Two problems :

1- I have to put very high skilled crews in it, or else it behaves really bad, so this contradict its rôle of training tank.

2- I can't play it as a true scout, i camp a lot in it, i only do passive scouting wich is frustrating.

All lights require an excellent crew, don’t buy the AMX Chaffee as a trainer in unless you want to train your 15 skill American crew a bit faster. 

 

Right now the AMX is playing very well and those high tier games it gets now are hilariously fun.

I feel the AMX Chaffee needs a Health Pool buff, Bring it up to 800 at most 750 at the least. And to all those people who say stupid cr_p like "just don't get shot".....Eat Me.

It probably needed a HP buff before all the new/high tier lights.

I wouldn't complain if WG saw fit to bring it up to 700.

Was a fun challenge when is saw tier 10 on maps like highway, live oaks, mal etc. consistently, in map rotations where you could work view range.

 

Last 3 games in it, got one shotted by a Turtle on on Fjords & one shotted by a T30 on Ardennes.  Only guaranteed to see a big open map when I take the VK 100.01P out for a run, lol.

In a way, playing the AMX Chaffee is good to refine your avoiding being hit. Since each shot maybe potentially terminal.

If you really want to play an A'Chaffee, you need all the stealth perks/skills you can fathom.

Else, when you only take it out to train other tank's crews, you have to be a complete opportunist. Tiptoeing to detect, falling back and staying back. You are totally dependent on your team.

The next time we have a bounty hunt, I will exclusively use my AMX Chaffee.

So what ? It needed HP buff before for same reason and now adding some more HP to this tank have perfect explanation.

Buff the HP, nerf the burst damage.

If I could get my say, I would rather have a higher weight/power ratio increase personally.

 

It is not too bad as it is, but I would like to have a tad more acceleration and backward speed. I think this would be an acceptable trade as it would not rock the boat too much.

Thats why I use premium gas on mine. The low top speed isn't bad with good acceleration.

Keep the 600 HP and keep the same gun, just be more nimble on the battlefield?

Still makes the tank pretty unforgiving.
