i could use some tips fighting wit this one. imho it is inferior in more or less every way compared to the vk1602. so far the only use for this tank i see is passive scouting, and that is a playing style i realy dislike so i was hoping for any other use?

Unfortunately, a lot of the time there isn't much you can do with it - it's not a long grind, unless you're intending to go to the Chaffee.  I found scouting in it pretty hard, good games were hard to have.

The M5 Stuart is not a very good tank to keep in your garage.
Unless you really like to pain yourself with horrible games every now and then.
But if you do inten to go for the Chaffee, derp in the M5 and hope for the best.
Only playstyle advice that I can give:
don't try to circle, don't try to soak shells, don't try to snipe/brawl, don't try to hit-and-run, flank with caution and good luck!

Indeed micro derp and go full on camo. Really play like a stealth scout. The grind is horrible. I am going for chaffee now and I share your pain (only 50k more to go....)

another thing that I noticed is: be like a mosquito. Be annoying, deal small stings with HE. If all else fails, you will have some great laughs doing that and assist your team through distractions.

I had an interesting one with the M5A1 - not quite the same, but worth bundling in with this one.

I wanted so badly to hate this tank. But I couldn't.

I found it fast, effective, and (with the odd prem shell thrown in when needed) accurate and dangerous.

I had some amazing games in it.

But the frustration - I think this tank was a bad luck tank for me. The games where I did well I universally lost. Very, very strange.

Maybe it's just something along those lines?

At least you have the chaffee at the end of your grind - the type 34 is pants Wink

How is it possible to want to hate something about WoT?

 The point you bring is a good 1. It is a scout, which generally does not allow you to carry the game. You are as good as the sum of your team.

I recognize this so well in all my scouts and I love scouting. The games I do well in, I generally outperform the team and we still lose...
