M48s always seem to die so quickly while even a normal E 50 bounces ton of shots and survives longer and the E50 M is like a god in the right hands.  I say E50 M for sure.

E50M, the ram king. You can ram, have better armor, and can deal twice or triple damage when ramming against medium or light tank opponents at full speed.

I guess its all about armor vs view range.  On paper, the E50M seems better, more armor and a lazer accurate gun, but the M48 will see it coming first and also has enormous tracks and one hell of a troll turret (especially after the buff).  I think the M48 also shoots on the move much better (isn't it the best a drive by shootings?).

Tier Xs: M48 Patton, E100, T110E4

The M48 is VERY unstealthy, even worse than the E50M by a slight margin. With both tanks mounting optics, I would put them about equal in spotting capacities-whoever is in cover and stationary has an advantage. The Patton turret is quite strong-but so is the E50Ms with the buff. The patton has huge tracks, but inferior side armor. The E50M's armor profile overall is undeniably superior. The Patton is great at firing on the move due to the great bloom values, but it has terrible 'hard' accuracy - the only reason why its a great snapshotter is that it (was) very slow. The E 50M has good (but not as great as Patton) bloom values (which make the gun much more snappy than the Leo's) and is a pretty good snap shooter but also is extremely fast in a straight line, giving it a big advantage over the slower Patton-and it's an amazing rammer, so much that many tanks are willing to waste a shot on a charging 50M's tracks in order to save themselves several hundred hit points. In MT duels, the Patton's superior DPM is mostly balanced out by cover and the 50M's sexy armor, while the 50M's insane accuracy is better for sniping HT weak spots and sniping. Overall, I believe that the 50M is a superior (if only slightly so) machine. Both are very good solopubbing tanks however, so whichever one you want more is the one you should get.

Ramming is wonderful and all but that gun is so disappointing.  I vote M48 for its shoot on the move and aim ability.  I really like both tanks but E 50s are something that are just a lot of fun while Pattons feel more like they are better tanks.

Both great tanks. But I have to side in the M48 Patton. 

 

It has better flexibility with its fun depression and traverse speeds. And just better DPM, with its new turret it is overall better. 

The E50 has alot of thinks going for it, but flexability is a superior feature. If it had the same rate of fire, perhaps it would be tougher to decide. But the Patton has gun depression, mobility, DPM, and now turret ARMOR. While the E50m does have Armor, Speed, and Accuracy, it's missing the flexability of fun depression and better DPM

The E 50m feels its past three nerfs far more than it benefits from its recent buff.

 

The one bonus is that now you can facehug other mediums more successfully but that largely depends if the enemy wants to shoot HEAT or not.

 

 

I'm going to play E 50 with the comedy long gun some more actually...

at least it has the option

Personally, I think the m48 is better. In a brawl, as long as you avoid the initial ram, you will be fine. Also, with the new turret and thick tracks, this tank is great for hull down. As long as you keep it moving, it is pretty bouncy. The m48 is basically the Jack of All Trades, except while brawling. I find that it is the best tier 10 medium for brawling.

Just being able to put in snap shots makes the M48 king but E 50s are great  [[:

I'm not sure after the pen nerfs. In a med v med brawl the E50m is stronger after the nerfs, but before that probably the Patton. I haven't played either since the change, but I think the E50 might be the new king of tier 9 meds.

I just got my M48 and get a lot of bounces hull down, also the gun depression is great. E50M is great for brawling and killing other mediums very effectively. Both very good tanks. Just my opinion here.
