I believe it could use a few buffs. Armor is decent if angled properly and it's super mobile for 100mm of armor. The gun is decent. Despite the low penetration and below average accuracy, you can get the gun's reload to around 5.5 seconds...really good ROF.   I'd like to see some better dispersion and a slight buff to the accuracy. Pen is low, but the ROF is great. Use APCR

Overreliance on prammo is not a good sign unless it's something like HESH. Shows a certain weakness to the gun and tier placement of the vehicle.

If you look at the amount of credits I made you can see I didn't have to use that much prammo...   mainly just at the opposing heavies and upper tier tanks.

I feel its OK for its tier, fairly balanced tank.

 "In this game you’re either a predator or you’re prey.

 Prey doesn’t win at the same ratio as the predators because prey doesn’t have the same attitude. Unfortunately their are are not enough predators to keep the prey in check and  the prey is running rampant. Prey doesn’t care about WR, either directly or indirectly. Thats why they do what they want, that’s why the game has been dumbed down and  that’s why MH was brought about. Without a check it will continuously get worse until the predators are extinct" 4sfield

the definition of "exelsior" is "to indicate superior quality."  if the tank is called exelsior then it must mean the tank is of superior quality.

At best the “need” is at level 2. And the only place it needs help is base AP penetration. It’s not that the prammo is particularly expensive or weak.  It’s just that there are a few Tier IVs that seem a bit too red even head on.

 

Other than that?  Nope. Even the preposterously weak hull side is no big deal if you are careful. Sure, it gets overmatched by a KV-2. But that’s your fault, not the Excelsior’s. So buff the gun a little closer to a Pz. IV’s 75L43 or 75L48 and you’re done. 


The point of the game is to win.  The purpose of the game is to have fun.  They are not mutually exclusive.

Its side armor isn't even all that weak.  The 32 mm of armor in the stats does not include the additional 30 or so mm of spaced armor that covers most of the side of the tank.  I've got over 500 games in the tank, and find it to be one of the better tier 5s.  No buff is really necessary, although raising AP pen from its current 91 to 106 (the same buff given the T14) might not be a bad idea.
