So I'm wondering which one of the tier 10 American heavies to go for. I played both on test server and I was pretty good in both. I was wondering if you guys had any suggestions?

They are similar tanks but different playstyles. I have the E5 and I love it. Idk how I would do with an autoloader though.

T110E5 is a much more enjoyable line to go up.

And not directed at you in anyway - but I think most (not all) people should wait to get the T57 - as it can be punishing if not played correctly.

I would go for the E5 - very common in clan wars, and the T57 is getting nerfed soon as well.

E5; because T57 is going to get a nerf meanwhile E5 has not been touched nor is it going to be.

I want to say T57 just because the T110e5 cupola is really annoying, but then again, the entire T57 tank is a weakspot vs. tier 10 guns. (tier 9 hull on a tier 10, and the turret is very weak)

E5 unless you have the Batchat, then you should have a hang for the autoloader plus' and minus'.  They are both fun.

Thanks for the suggestion! I find it funny how they plan on nerfing the T57 but look at what they are adding in... an autoloading E-100 with better speed and no turret armor.

That's pretty much been their business model from the start.  Release a good tank, wait for everyone to spend gold on free XP/premium, nerf it, then release a new good tank.

Agree, the 05 line has a lot of good well rounded tanks easier to play and that match well in battle and are forgiving a bit to play.......I'm finding the T57 line trickier to play thusfar

T29 & T32 & m103 are fun to play

The grind to the T57 is quite a bit longer as well.

I really enjoy the T110E5 better than The T57 For the reasons that you stated.

Oh and You Mentioning the T29 Brought back an old memory of mine one night  I was using My T29 in a fight a dragon Ridge and I claimed my First Tier 10 vehicle a Maus believe it or not it is the truth.

Unless you have prior experience with auto-loaders, then you should bet on the T110E5. It's a combination of the 103's mobility and the T29's invincibility. The M103 was somewhat of a surprise when I looked at the turret armor. Only because the Americans were known for their turrets. But the sloping of the turret makes up for the lack of thickness. 

I have had my 103 for 500-600 battles so far. Some people would say that my 8500-9000 battles isn't enough to have a decent opinion on the game. But with the 103's mobility and the T29's invincibility were definitely molded into the T110E5. Although I have yet to purchase the beast, I have a 53% win rate on my 103 along with an 82% accuracy. So I feel like I hold enough to comment. But along with the T110E5, you aquire the turret thickness again! Some 256mm?

Now, to be successful with the T57. I've only played it on the test servers but I averaged 2-4 kills a battle with it. My strategy is to sit back and snipe all four rounds into the enemy. That way you're still too far away to be spotted and you can safely reload and come back out with 1600 damage just waiting for prey.

Hope this helps!

I would go T57, the non-autoloader non-TD tanks don't really stand out anymore. Arty will eat you up in a E5

Hmm is that really true though?  My own experience is minuscule but I hear a lot that the medium tanks are great and still do excellent damage.  Would you still say the T57 Heavy as the OPs next tier 10 even when considering medium tanks such as the Object 140 or T-62A?

i have a russian friend that has both T57 and T110e5 and believe me, the grind towards the autoloader is pretty painful meanwhile the E5 isnt as hard and it plays like a medium.
