THE E25 - Smol, Fast, Accurate, and Unseen

This tank is one of the better ones I have driven in the past few months.  While working on my current grinds I found a renewed interest in tanks that had low profiles and even lower standards.

The one thing I love about this tank is the DPM coupled with the camo rating.  If you can get into a sniper spot, which with the speed is fairly easy, you can farm untold amounts of damage like a ghostly apparition on the battlefield.  The E25 is able to hide under the guns of the taller tanks of this game, such as the KV-4tress, Smashers, EXP, VK 100, and a whole host of the other armored Goliath tanks that call this game home.

Another one of the stats that make this tank very fun to drive is the fact it is able to relocate quickly.  This allows you to pop a few shots, run to another  spot, pop a few more, and keep those reds either pinned down or moving.

 

I run my E25 with rammer, and that grants me 3k DPM, even.  I make full use of this, having managed to delete a T29 in under 30 seconds.  I would imagine a platoon of these tanks would be HIGHLY effective at clearing targets and racking up damage, but I have yet to test my theory in practice.

 

What are some of your highlights in the E25, personal quirks about the tank you enjoy, or things that I did not mention in the post here?

Ramming light tanks. It’s surprisingly effective at it.

Don’t have this pest, but a good strategy I found against the Tiger P is flanking it and getting behind it. Learned from experience, now I kill any pest immediately before it gets any funny ideas...

I love my Tiger P :playing:

I came close to a win using this strat in my first battle.  Had 5,076 damage and he manages to get up on a hill JUST enough to have the gun dep to kill me off.

You should see Martin Dogger’s video on it. The game was insane.

I'm not great in it, but it's the funnest tank ever.  If you're good at camo you can be pretty successful.  I'm not, but I have a lot of fun anyway.  The DPM is rage inducing, as is the ability to run away.  It does die fast, it has a pretty high skill floor, but it's definitely a fun ride.

But not the speed, size, camouflage rating, or facehugging ability. 

 

Seriously dude, stop being so critical.

But the other tds don’t have the size, speed, and stealth this thing has.

you can farm damage if the other player doesn't take cover after taking 160 damage. the mobility is amazing, but the gun sucks. it has absurd speed and camo for a reason.

You are not going to convince anyone here the E25 is not an amazingly fun tank.

 

Take your doo -doo posts elsewhere.

What?  The gun is fantastic.  It's accurate, it pens, you just have to know how to use a high ROF gun.  If you come up behind a Tiger P in the open, you can probably hit him 4 times before he manages to get into cover, for well over 500 damage.

you can do that with any tier 7 td. they all do the same dpm, though the others have higher alpha. it needs that accuracy or it would fall farther behind.

 

i'm not saying that playing it isn't fun, td's are extremely boring and this one is actually not boring at all. you have to expose yourself and move around the map to get the use of your pellet shooter. that takes more skill and makes it more fun.

Dude, go buy the tank, drive it, and then talk about it.

don't think that would alter the tank at all. it performs as one of the worst tier 7 td's because of the gun. not even the speed and camo make it above average.
