What should I get after the M4 Sherman? The E2 or the E8?

Speed or armor, man?

I chose the E2 for the safety.

E2-Heavy and Slow Sherman. Great armor.
E8-Fast and Deadly Sherman. Great flanker.

E8 is just average now. It used to have completely awesome on the move accuracy that was almost laser guided, but they nerfed that to the ground.

Now all it's there for is for finding hull down positions and then spending the next three minutes pinging people with the inaccurate M1A2

depends, e8 has great mobility and a quick rof but the gun is a bit lacking and it's an easy tank to pen so keep mobile

e2 has heavy tank like mobility, great front armor and the choice to use a derp cannon, or use the higher rof top gun.  Lacking in mobility limits you to a smaller portion of the map, relocating will be slow so choose wisely.

It's all a matter of playstyle... so choose which one best fits you

The Easy 8 is still a fun tank, it's the only Tier VI tank that I have in my garage.

E2 all the way.  I suggest you eventually get both and test them out.  I am sure the E2 will win out though.

Do you enjoy mediums or hvys? I took the route to the T29, possibly the best tier 7 hvy in the game!

I heard the grind is hilariously bad if you actually went up with the E2 however.

umm.. the E2 and E8 have the same gun choices. They can both fit the derp and have the same top 76mm.

OP, all you need to know is if you want armour or speed. Take your pick.
