Contemplating whether it's worth it to buy a Chi-Nu-Kai? I'll be streaming me playing the tank right now for at least a couple games in a row, perhaps that could be what puts you over the edge in whether you want to buy the the tank or not. Either way come check it out if you aren't already on the battlefield. Actions speak louder than words.

Shameless advertising but I figured it might be useful since it involves a new premium tank people may or may not want to buy.

My first 4 games with it were all wins. Aced it twice and master badge 2nd class once. It doesn't deflect to many shots so definite play like a normal medium. But the gun, very nice. So far the only tank i have bounced off of, which i was on the move, was the KV-220. If feel if you like the M4 you will like the the Chi!

yes it was changed to prem MM. makes it a much more desirable tank now. it would have been outclassed at tier 7 by a mile

I was on the fence about this tank and figured that I would just wait for Japanese tech tree and maybe get it IF it was on sale for 50% (happens fairly regularly).  THIS is a big deal and a deciding factor for me as I will probably got one today.  Very wise decision by WG.

Good stream +1  I had time to play 3 games in my Chi-Nu Kai today and all were losses but the tank felt better than expected. Can't wait to play more with it and this time i will have couple skills ready when the real medium line comes. My french head start went completely wrong because i didn't enjoy playing FCM 50t.

My impression of it hasn't been very good, the tank has become cursed for me. 8 losses and counting without being able to get the double done....I have not won a game in this tank. Every one of my teams so far has refused to move 1 mm from the starting area which results in them getting out spotted and shot up leaving me the low health no armoured semi-slow sniper to be the heavy tank playing aggressively. Also the majority of games have had half of both teams be KV-1's and KV-220's which are tricky to pen but doable. First two losses were on EU during the day so I changed to NA-East and found even more villainy :(

 

That and today has just been one of those days....you know....getting yoloed, bad RNG, bad teams all around etc. Seriously I feel like I want a refund just because I cannot get a win in this thing which is a shame because I like it and want to train up by Japanese crew.

+1 MM.  Some tech tree tanks, like the D Wagon, get +1 MM, too, while some premium tanks (Ram II, T-25, SU-122-44, etc) get standard +2 MM.

Thanks for the stream. It was fun to see the new tank in action.

Can't wait to get off of work.

Thanks for tuning in guys, hope you enjoyed the stream and I also hope I made your decision on whether to get the Chi-Nu-Kai a little more clear.

 

If you missed the stream and still want to check out some of the Chi-Nu-Kai you can go here http://www.twitch.tv/luna0995/profile/past_broadcasts and watch some of the games.

If you cant stop yourself form brawling on the front line stay way from this tank, however if you like to flank and snipe you will have fun with the tank and the great pen gun.

I absolutely sympathize with your feelings. I have noticed that when there is a Chi-Nu Kai on both teams the game seems more balanced but when I am the only Chi-Nu Kai then my team usually loses irrespective of tiers involved. It's weird because I'm usually in the top 3 with regards to damage output and yet I keep losing 8-0, 9-0 or 10-0 one game was even a 14-0 loss !  I think there are certain tanks that have prejudicial matching and the Chi-Nu Kai is definitely in that category and possibly the E25 aswell. I have about 25 tanks and the Chi-Nu Kai is the only one with a less than 50% win rate. Frankly, I'm beginning to hate using it at all and might bin it.

In the Japanese vehicle section of the forums today...someone is trying to sell one. They aren't happy with it. I don't use mine often anymore.

Re: Nuke 2099,

Take a look at this video, it may help. It got me hooked on these tanks. Ronin 47R has some great battles in this video.
