"Its slow acceleration, turning, poor terrain resists bog it down,"

 

it is the best of the heavy mediums, the only one and best one. 

It gets eaten up by the medium heavy's and that is the bigger issue.

It is not as good a sniper as the 50/51...

If 113, WZ5A, lS7 are very common and successful, fulfilling their fast heavy roles - so too should a heavy medium be useful enough to have a wider berth and versatility.

 

Thing is, lS7 113 WZ5A all feature the common things required. They have heavy tank HP, speed, hull and turret armour, and respectable alpha damage.

 

E5OM has trouble with this concept, and role, not allowing it to be a heavy medium, or at least successful as one. Hull is great, but turret is terrible. Alpha isn't separate or more damaging than other peer meds, despite moving slower. Poor camo rate, doesn't distinguish it all too much from heavy tanks, not at all like conventional meds. E5OM is just a terrible flawed tank that maybe good, but WG just pukes all over it

 

It needs a HP boost. Needs a horsepower boost. Needs a turret armour boost.

If lS7 can get buffs like this, so should an E5OM

Close to getting E50M, but would I regret selling off my E50 just to get it?

Why would you sell one of the best tier 9 tanks in the game?

I guess I'll keep it, I haven't tried many 9s to compare it to, tho I do like it.

when you got a great tank like the tier 9 dont sell it either save, wait for a sale or find sometning you use less or find less fun. i never sell a great tank to fund the next tier up i find a tank to sell that isnt awesome or i could stand to be without for a while...or i save or wait for a sale on it....for example id never sell my T 54 to buy the T62a but I DID some thinking and decided i wouldnt miss my Centurion AX very much and so that got sold instead....

No ones said this, the E50 and E50M are the best looking tanks in WOT period! ;-)

 

But really, most tier 9 mediums are pretty fun and can be OP, it's just what you need them for. 

 

Between the top or best of them is really what situation or really how you play. 

 

I play really aggressive, so I love playing the 50 or M in Pubs. You can just bully people with it! 

 

But in overall, I'd have to say the T-62 and 140 are the overall better tank. 

 

But would much rather play the German and tic people off ;-)

When I play the E50M I feel like my shells hit before i even click because the shell velocity is so high.

I'm not a fan of changing armor values, but maybe add some tracks to the cheeks for spaced armor?  A DPM buff would be awesome and a bit more HP would be cool, but not much.  Was it a common practice to add concrete to german tanks?  I know other nations did, but I haven't seen any germans with it.  Maybe add some concrete to the front of the turret if it's historically plausible.
