So I bought this this morning and first impression is that it's a better version of the AMX 50 100, you can actually bounce shots of the turret but nowhere else, accuracy is awful but that's expected, speed is ok, turret traverse and hull traverse is ok. It's not worth the full price and I'd say that the offer that it is at at the moment is worth it.

It's a good tank, especially if you haven't tried an autoloader but want to. It is a fair bit slower than the AMX though.

I purchased it right out of the bat, and I never regretted it;

 

Someone said the intra-clip reload was faster before, but I don't know if it is true or a myth. But I payed mine 15+K Gold, so you can appreciate that you got it for a discount....

as far as i know it hasn't been changed, perhaps it's nerfed compared to PC?

 

Turret is pretty soft unless it's a tier 6 shooting at you, but the frontal hull is great against autoaim.

Did this Vic character not like the Nomad Somua or something?

Colour me confused.

Most people such as gamers and activists tend to b itch about things and people they think and feel are offensive and insensitive to them. I feel actually bad for somebody like Vic Mignogna now. He's real legendary. He's even realistic. I've heard and looked at him on the Internet in the past. He still has a wife. People have a real strong love of human hatred. Past things have turned into reboot/remake ones. People always keep rehashing types of s hit they feel and think appear relevant to them and people have been obsessive about and getting so consumed by those types of s hit (pop culture, music, gaming, etc.) from the very beginning (the different generations). Most people like famously spoiled, corrupt ones have been egocentric and irrational. I hate those egocentric, irrational people like them.

 

What happened to you? someone ate your Easter chocolate egg or something?

The major issue with this tank, or at least, in my own view, is that you can't really stay alone. Once your clip is shot, you have that long reload which is crippling you. You have to have a wing man.

 

I followed a guy who participated to the latest ranked battles, and he used his Somua at all times, and that worked pretty well. Because in RB, players stay together.

I would dare say, that the Nomad is a very good tank to take out in Tier VIII RB.

I did once or twice, it was even more feast or famine than random battles, because of the small maps and tendency of your few team mates to scatter.

I really like the Nomad and you just have to take the odd painful loss, when your team mates melt away from brownian-motion or ineptideath, on the chin.

I feel like the players who have had their strong, French crews operating the Nomad have gotten better. It's the French crew with the bigger number of skills and perks who have made each other and the Nomad even stronger. To any crew/tank, yeah.
