Wow, what can I say? The E50 is amazing. Take one of the best guns in the entire game in the 10.5, add some nice armour, give it a great top speed, give it even sexier looks... and well.. you got the best tier9 medium in the game. There simply is no point in getting a Patton, and the E50 more than handles its own in a close up dog fighting match with a T54. This really is the boss. We even had one game where we went up a hill on prok, and ran straight into about 7 mediums, including 4 T54's, a Patton, T44 and a Panther, now if this was the Panther2, we would of died so quick, but we ended up taking most of them down with our E50's(3 of us in a platoon), and it was their arti that did the damage to me.

Tonight, Me and a couple of buddies(Dr_Zoidberg01, ZeGerman and CmdrAnderson(for the last two games)) ran a E50 platoon in random battles, and won 16 games in a row, with 15 of them being over 1k exp. The streak is still going really, since I closed the game undefeated. The only loss I had apart from one in the E50 before the streak, was in the T95 in a single game in between, but that is the T95.

Don't have an E50? Get one. Have a Patton? Sell it. Have a T54? Keep a look out for your new boss. Have a E50? Well, you can't hide behind any excuses now, forget the rubbish about soviet bias, it's time for you players to show if you have skill, or if you suck, because really.. you have the right tank in your hands.

PS: Although the 10.5 is really the best choice for the E50, the 88 L/100 is fun to use, and the barrel is freaking huge! lol, it's just a shame that DPS doesn't mean much in this game, when most games are about alpha damage and playing peak a boo.

SHHH, TOO MANY THREADS ON THIS WILL CAUSE A NERF!!

YOU'RE DOING THE OPPOSITE OF WHAT YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE DOING [Creating praising threads instead of complaint threads]!!

On a side note -- Yeah, I enjoy the tank alot [ I don't own one though, I borrowed a friend's account :D ].

I sat in battle yesterday with only my turrent exposed on my KT, yes its the upgraded turrent. An E50 and I exchanged shots. 3 hits and I was dead from a E50.

I only had the 2nd 10.5cm gun and had a very hard time hurting the E50

Ièm definately enjoying it a lot more.

As usual, need to tone down my aggression a bit, as I let my armour get me into trouble. :P

I just hope I make it to the tank before the nerf! ;)

Surely they'll realize people (German drivers) are finally happy w/something and leave it be.

Its like a Mini-KT.

I currently play Russian mediums currently in Live. In beta I was all about the German mediums and heavies. Which I was disappointed in. So, now after running into and playing with(along side) the new E-series tanks. I am throughly impressed. The rest of the German mediums and heavies are still lacking IMO, but these new ones are definitely what the doctor ordered. I just hope they DONT get nerfed to the ground.

As usual, the E-50 almost being on par with russian T-54 is conclusive evidence that it is in fact OP :/

I don't think it's OP, I think it's perfect for those that like the original P2.  It's just too big for me, but at least it has good armor now, comperable to the other mediums (albiet this tank is a lot easier to hit).

This is the German medium tank I've always dreamed of; it's not the 10.5 with wheels like the PII was, this thing is through and through a tank.  Hell, I remember when I would slowly back away from T-54s, and imagine my surprise when a T-54 finally tried to back away from me.

Meh, e-50 feels like the same shit as panther II to me. Still nowhere near as fun or powerful as my T-44 imo.

See now yall are doin this all wrong. the thread should sound like this: Wow thanks WOT for this rolling turd pile you call the E-50. I've not been this disappointed in a tank since...well ever. The gun bounces more than a my ex-wife bounces checks. And seriously the T-54's those dirty Russian Cossack's are driving are tearing me a new one. When are those things going to get nerfed? This P.O.S is little more that a farm tractor with sheet metal for armor and a 105mm duct taped to it. The German line gets screwed like a cheerleader on prom night yet again  :angry: .. Thanks DEV's. See guys like that.  B)

Didn't take the trolls long to get here.

I could go afk for 5minutes and your T44 would still be firing away with its rubbish guns, are you saying that the 100mm or 122mm come anywhere close to the 88 L/100, let alone the 10.5? If the E50 can go toe to toe with a T54 in a dogfight, what chance does your T44 have?

With your trolling aside, the truth is... the T44 probably requires a buff to bring it into line with the Pershing and Panther2, and to maybe one day require it not to have to carry wet ammo rack.
