Surprisingly slow and sluggish for a light with 560hp engine.
Very disappointed with the nerf it got. Will not buy anymore premium tanks because of that.

 

It’s Performance didn’t get nerfed.

The only reason they changed the tier and mm is so it didn’t drag tier 6 platoons into a tier 9 match.

I also may be wrong.

Example:
Everyone is in a normal mm 6, you jump in Joco and now you’re platoon is in 9, often.

It didn't get a nerf why post about a nerf when there was none?

It has a better chance at being top tier now where before no chance.

I’ve been top tier over 50% of my games since it got bumped. 

Not the monster XP earner it once was though.

It wasn't nerfed at all, and it sees the same opponents that it was seeing before.

Interesting, let's look at my numbers.

 

The up-tiering happened on 2018-08-28. I had 221 games before that, 54 after. Of the 221 games with the old tier, 66 (29.9 %) are at tier 7. Of the 54 games with the new tier, 18 (33.3 %) are at tier 7.

 

The numbers are low, but they look normal.

On NA PS4 with old MM I bet 50% or better of my games I was the only tier 6 in a tier 8 or 9 game. 

With bump to tier 7 MM has been vastly easier.

Out of the 221 games before the change, 52 were tier IX games with a tier VI tank in it, but I don't know whether I was the only one.

 

That's very low, considering that the tank is pretty rare. I don't remember any game with a second AMX Chaffee.

I still disagree with the statement that it faces the same tanks, it never had to deal with 5 lights as it does now, it used to be a pure scout at tier x...with two per side the majority of the time. I think it could use a slight buff but I also think we've got better things to worry about than amx chaffee! (until the light tank craze is over we should probably not be encouraging their play by buffing any of them)

  Amx chaffee, forever the underdog lol. I'll be flying a white flag off the back of mine!

But it does face the same tanks. What's going on with the lights at a higher tier has nothing to do with the AMX chaffee as a tank, just poor decisions on the tusk contract.

I kindly ask everyone who think the same to put your answer:

I'm same opinion / yes, right.

 

This tank should remain as is; if anything has to be done, it is maybe a further increase of the XP percent multiplier to 70% to compensate for the loss in earnings after the Tier bump.

 

The AMX Chaffee always was a peculiar tank, and required good ability to make it shine. This is the way it's got to stay. As you know, it used to be a Tier VI able to see Tier X tanks.

 

Later on, limited to Tier IX.

 

If you want something easier to play, there are plenty of other choices. I like the fact that playing the AMX Chaffee, you need to transcend yourself in every compartment of your game, else, you make an early exit. In any Tier IX battle, several of your opponents can one shot you, so you need to be careful.

The only major draw back, is to have a very green crew without the Sixth Sense in it.

 

My only recommendation, is to never put a crew that does not have that perk in it.


                                  Bad teams are in the same battle. Good teams work together! don't complain, contribute.

Here here. Well said, this wonderdul little tank is getting a bad rep for being unique and fun that requires a little patience to play like light tanks used to be. Now everyone just wants everything to perform the same and where the fun in that?.

We’re not the only ones! Lol!

 

AMX Chaffee is still fully capable in the modern meta. 

Plenty of choices if you want an easy to play tier 7 light, but if your ready for a special experience the AMX Chaffee is there for you.

so we can agree that it isn't exactly facing the same tanks as it once was?

   Cuz I'd gladly go back to scouting in tier x vs big slow heavies. Two lights per side rather than deal with 5 lights per team all with more health than amx chaffee! 

  Again guys, I'm not looking for equal, or same, just SLIGHTLY closer...if you HAD to pick, would you take speed or health points?

Obviously, but all scouts suffer from the same problem. "Fixing" the AMX Chaffee does not fix the problem.

The amx chaffee nerfs is mobility.  Was much more mobile before the light tanks were extended to teir 10.

mobility is overrated. 

 

not getting into dumb situations>using speed to try to save your butt. 

 

It has a good HP/ton ratio and maneuverability and a gun that behaves quite well for an autoloader.
