Why all the b1tchin about the e25? It's not a magical easywin tank and takes a heck of a skill level to play right. Now, can it be OP if the hands of a great TD player that can tend to its strong points? Yes. But how many of those players do you see in it? Very few. Yet most e25 players do mediocre in it at best and most just yolo in it to their death or get lit and die instantly. That said, there are plenty more tanks that are idiot-proof for pubbies to enjoy or tanks that have such a high skill ceiling that they can do miracle carries in unicum hands. 

wait... that... that... that means im a great TD player and I have a heck of skill level? yay!

 

In all seriousness, I can perform well enough on it while im no way a PRO. They key is not rushing like a [edited] and being lit like you said, just to use the head.

 

BTW, I play mostly TDs so maybe that helps a bit

I'm pretty certain that the E-25 design was meant to be similar in size to the Hetzer. My biggest gripe with the tank is that they haven't corrected their underscaling of it.

I understand that WG can't nerf Premium tanks, I get it. The whole bait and swap legal mumbo-jumbo. However, they CAN stop selling the thing like they said they would. I don't need to dwell on how ridiculous the tank is.The contempt of this wonder tank is well known to the community. War Gaming seems to not care how it affects the balance because they keep selling it. The concept of a Premium MM TD that can play any roll in the meta is BS IMO. Content like the E25 is such a let down no matter the price. WG made a choice by selling and giving the tank away when they know it is OP. A choice that abuses the game and the community. Am I the only one who finds content like this is repulsive?

YES, you're free to get one and have some fun yourself.

Something a bit off with this sale. They are talking about changing pref mm tanks and at tier 8 but I would bet that other tiers will eventually be changed as well. They will sell thousands of these E25s and then a few months or a year from now it gets "balanced". We all know what the word "balanced" will mean...it will become much worse to play or they will "buff" the tank and try to sell that point about how much better it is than before but suddenly it's moved up to tier 8 and fighting defenders and all the tier 9 and 10 tanks and trying to pen them with it's new, amazingly buff gun that has 200 pen. 50 more pen sounds like an amazing buff when you are fighting tier 5,6,7,8 tanks but when suddenly you are facing tiers 8,9,10 with it all the time, 200 pen will be a joke. I am not saying they will do this but it has been done in the past.

 

its called maximizing profit on pref mm tanks before they get nerfed cuz no one will buy them after the nerf.  its like car sales on 2018 models going on right now cuz the 2019 coming out, after 2019 that inventory of 2018 isnt worth what they can sell it for.

 

so they putting sales on pixel tanks of pref mm that dont cost them anything to maximize sales and profits before nerfs, cuz after no one gonna buy em.

 

Prem tanks aren't getting nerfed.  How can you not know this?

I'm not a TD player just a meduim guy and pre 3 5 7 I ran cromwell's quite a bit and I never had to many problems with the big bad E25.I tried the thing and its pen is garbage its transverse is garbage.Unless you are a dedicated TD player a good one that is its junk the AMX 1357 is far more deadly than the E25 for the average  player imo and more fun.The hate I get in messages after battle is amazing when I run that tank hell I haven't even aced the thing and it enrages people.

I would say no...the only solution to this tank is that everyone gets the opportunity to have one at some point or another. I would also hope that we don't see its ilk again. As for the argument that WG is selling too many OP premiums that might be true if we had the MM of a few years ago but more often than not your "OP" Tier-VIII premium tank is going to be seeing Tier X and suddenly it doesn't look so OP. If you're going to charge real money for these tanks they'd better be viable in the situations they're going to be facing.

Great. If they do that I'll have to send it to join Bert (FV-304) on the 'fat-farm'.

Being that vast majority of skill levels of players overperform in the e-25. And only ~64%+ WR players are underperforming in it currently. 

 

I would say your assessment is a little off.

Why?

I started after people got it for free or just bought it off the tech tree. I should be able to play with a ridiculously over powered tank like everyone else. That is called balance. :P

I mean they did up the size of the bert for "historical" reasons why not the E-and-a-quarter?
