To be honest, as someone who started out mostly German, then ground in order the T, IS then KV lines, there is not a dog among any of those tanks.  Adtergetting carp like the Cent or VK P foisted on you, the whole Russian Bias thing starts feeling pretty bloody real.

It is real. Their tier x aren't amazing but the lines in general are super easy

Agreed.

 

The ONLY Russian tank that I've ever written off as a non-threat was the A-20 and anything Tiers I-III (because those tiers are just crazy carp-shoots).

 

I still remember the first time I played the KV-1. I still stunk at the game, and I still was by far the hardest person to kill in any given match. It honestly felt like I could get a Steel Wall simply by parking out in the middle of the most flat, open field I could find and only turning the turret to take the occasional shot at people.

Just took 75 for a spin. Noticed a difference. It's more sluggish turning, which, makes it slower getting in side scraping position, which, makes it suck. How is e100 or JagE turn faster if 75 has better power to weight ratio. I'm not gonna start researching real world numbers, as those don't matter in this game which claims to be "realistic". Done w it. Ivan just twiddling his thumbs between vodka shots, deciding what stats to change. They should've made tanks pink that shoot pretty lasers. Or just stick to the 8 bit version. Just 3 tanks,

I played my E75 a few times last night and honestly, the nerf in traverse speed doesn't really affect gameplay all that much.  Yeah sure, it looks horrible on paper, but when playing, you shouldn't really notice it.  It's not like you're doing Circles of Death in that thing anyway.

 

I agree.  Did not notice much difference in my E75 once the battle started rolling.

Not everyone can be a unicom in this game. That being said, be a help to your team as best you can. If you're not an asset, then you're a liability.

Hmmm, perhaps I'm mixing them up.  I stalled on the line because of the hateful Panther 2, so was going off hearsay.  General consensus around the engine nerf was the tank was OP before and nerfed too heavily.  Again, I know the grind to get there so I have no issue with it being OP, it's a rough slog.

 

Yeah, the 50 was the one that felt the nerf bat.  The 50M is still stupendously OP.  I've got one loss in that tank.  It's sick.  It's bar none one of the hardest grinds though.  The Panther II is good at just about nothing, so that's fun.  The tier 9 E50 has a tremendous gun and a big nasty top plate, but the speed is meh, the bottom plate is buttah, and the depression is almost russian non-existent.  When it had the 1200HP engine, it was a freaking speed daemon and you could EASILY ram all the things.  Now, it's just OK at ramming since getting up to speed is a bit of a challenge.  If you can get up to speed though...  LOOK OUT.  Launch yourself down off the big hill on Oasis broad side into a Patton.  I promise nothing else in this game will give you more joy than doing 900 damage in a ram.

 

Anyway, the 50 is where it starts getting palatable and fun, but it's one of the longest tier IX grinds.  But the prize.  Oh man.  The 50M is where it's at.  Lots more pen.  Shoots faster, turns better, accelerates like crazy.  It's NASTY

I'll say this, I've noticed the traverse nerf my 75 has taken. If for no other reason then being stuck in the spawn facing the opposite direction I'd like to head out in the map at the start of the battle. As well as turning to respond to threats. But it's something I can work my way through. Just gotta be less aggressive when going for enemy mediums, lol

I've decided not to go for high tier German heavies and mediums purely because WG can't seem to be able to keep their nerf bat away from them. Especially as regards speed.

Even with the nerfs, they're still well worth it.

E75 is a beast still(dont have the E100) and the E50 and E50m are both great tanks.  I wouldn't let the nerfs stop you

E50 is a verrrrry long grind to E50M. It's a fun one though. Or was. I heard it got nerfed at some point.

Oh yeah, the topic: The farthest I've ever gone up the German heavy line is Tiger 1 so I can't speak to E75. Sucks they nerfed it though. They're always nerfing the Germans and the Russians - which are already laughably superior - just stay the same. Or so it seems.

The bottom line though is that a full 50% of these tanks NEVER EXISTED (or were not produced until the Korean War) so I'm not sure where they get nerfs or buffs. They're just making it all up.

I don't expect much realism from WOT anymore, it's all in the name of game/tier balance. Many of the tanks were blueprints or test beds that never saw combat and the rest are arbitrarily balanced for the game.

Pathetic? Not necessarily. Highly questionable? Yes.

 

But, at the same time, I will have to recognize that mediums tend not to do well in a lot of instances because there's still a very large proportion of drivers who fail to realize that frontally brawling a heavy or getting into a sniper standoff with a TD is never a good idea in a medium. Extra points if they show their sides while doing so.

 

I've actually gotten a good number of T-54 kills in my Ferdinand because they happened to be morons who thought that it was a good idea to try out-sniping me.

Nope, the top suspension lost 7 as well.  It went from 26->19.
