Ok, by no means am I that good of a player, but when a +/- - average type of guy has to create a thread about this, then it must be taken serious, my God, that ultra rare 10x E25s per battle tank for almost every other game I have, I cannot take it anymore. When I play arty it is the worst, the laughter is so intense, my hands shake, can't do crap.

 

Here:

Some bros decided it is a great idea to team up 5x E-25 and rush the enemy. Never seen tanks die so fast, basically, rofl, within 90 secs of game start, -5 tanks..... The worst is, we were yelled at: "S%*$T support, losers, crap team" hahahaha

 

The other time, I saw 3x of them line up, civil war style, shooting at our Tort, rofl....I was like "I am going to enjoy watching this", our Tort, LOL, out Tort stops, turns towards them, I can already see the result here....

"BOOOM"  =  - 1x E25

"BOOOM"  =   - 1x E25

"BOOOM" =    - 1x E25

 

Tort goes on without even a scratch. "Thanks for the free kills !"

 

Then, the E-25s that go scout at start, they got the right idea but for the heavens, if you get shot once by some light, don't go for a revenge shot..... not if you have 14 barrels pointed at you....


Yesterday, I had the most fun in those games, 10x E25s in so many battles, my God.

 

The funniest was the Tort, blapping them one by one... I mean, if you see your mates left and right explode, you might think to reverse and move on, but no, keep steady, shooting....

 

No idea if I am the only one on those 5x E25 battles but I am dying to hear your stories, if you have any.

 

 

 

Are you saying that E-25s were fighting a Tortoise? That seems unlikely as they get pref MM and only see up to tier 8.

Ramming in the e25 is  a blast... Helps when you have 6 skills/perks upon it as well...

Thanks for the pointers! I'm running vents, net, binoculars right now, myself. Seems to really work well for the early passive scout roll, with the paint and camo crew. The reload is already pretty quick, which is why I opted vents over rammer.

 

Yea I really feel that vents, binos, net, rammer, and optics are all viable depending on your playstyle.  Though I do think the current meta doesn't support net+binos as much as other options since that's two pieces of equipment that are useless when you can't sit still and hide (even if optics aren't "that" useful in city maps they can still help a bit; such as seeing up on to the hill of Himmelsdorf when along the D or G lines, or looking down those lines when on the hill).  Just different stuff to consider is all and glad you liked the pointers.

I love the ‘all WG cares about is the almighty dollar’. They’re a business, that’s what businesses do. Not caring about the dollar = no business. There is zero reason as long as we continue to spend money on the game  for them to care what we think.

Yeah, ate a couple KV2s last night, actually.  I highly doubt they ever even saw me.  That big, slab-sided turret is made out of soft butter even for the 75mm.  

 clearly you have not faced me, i eat e-25 for snack 

kv2 is love

Sure there is, it's called short-term gain and long-term loss.  So if players spend money RIGHT NOW that's great for them...unless that helps lead to either those players or others quitting later.  People keep talking about how the servers are dying and why do you think that is?  Because players are quitting and not enough new players are picking up the game (or staying with it).  Why are they quitting?  Because while it might be "fun" to drive OP tanks (or not fun if one isn't good with the required playstyle such as the E25) they generally don't find it fun when they're on the receiving end of said OP tank.  Thus they quit and no longer buy tanks or premium time.  And if enough quit then the community suffers.  And if the community suffers enough then others will quit because the community that they enjoyed in the past is gone.

 

So yes, there very much is a reason for them to care about what the consumer thinks.  That isn't to say they care about what the NA population thinks.  While we pay the most per user that doesn't make us the most profitable region given how our community has either been stagnate in growth or flat out shrunk.  Thus if more profitable regions don't mind or actually like such things then they might be willing to just accept our loss in favor of catering to a different region.

Or you haven't faced an E25 that's been properly driven.

Entirely possible that I haven't! Comes down to map, I think. Given space to work in, the E25 won't have any trouble with a KV-2. In a city where you can't play stealth and range, the E25 is hosed against a well driven KV-2. Now, make a mistake in the city and let me get in close, and you're toast! But if I can't run in and side-or-rear hug you... Ow.

you´r right. but believe me when i say that using the "E and F keys" to control the awful accuracy of the 152mm gun makes a lot of diference on 1 vs 1.  and that way i can one shot almost anything reliably

I'm running my normal German TD crew in mine, once you get a full camo crew with paint and a net on that thing, it's flipping invisible!  I've been mostly starting my games with passive scouting when I can, throwing in the occasional shot when I'm sure I can't be spotted in response. I think this thing is a better scout than most lights!  Then, later in the match when I've still got my HP, I can go clean up survivors from range with comfortable ease. 

 

Sadly, on city maps I haven't figured out how to make it perform yet.  Overall, I'm really liking it!

 

I have a good crew in mine bia camo etc Im just scared to take it out haha.I dont have the slightest idea how to play TDs I just bought it because I really dont know why actually.

   I guess I might do ok in it but im bad in anything but meta meduims and pretty much a potato in anything elae except the 12T.Some say it plays like a 12T some what maybe ill be ok with it seems like a fun tank.

Haul it out and give it a try! Play careful and don't get spotted, you have zero armor. It's not expensive to repair, so go get killed a few times, and you'll get the hang of it. It's a fun little thing to play!

I don't see how 3 E-25's can end up in a tier 9 battle. One, MAYBE two.

 

 

How about six...three on each side.

My sample size is 1, but I played it how i have seen it played... early bush lighting, have some patience, then start popping things as they turn their attention elsewhere.  

 

Use that mobility, and dont go toe to toe with anyone.

 

I enjoyed it.  $60 was a bit steep, plus there being only one bundle (not like today for 20 you can get just the tank with the crew) so I got some extra gold and crap.

 

I think it will be a good tank for me.  The one that i bought that i am struggling with is the STV S1....  that 2s setup time is tough to get used to.

Keep working on it!  It's tough to get used to, and when you get a city battle you're just kinda hosed.  But nothing prints credits like an S1 with a dumb bunch of heavies trundling across the field on Prok!
