lol you apologists.

 

You understand that there has to be a tank that sits on the bottom of the list right?? I wouldn't even say the e8 is that tank.

You must work for the WG balance department.  "Give the Sentinel 1000 dpm and 2.7 aimtime for the 2 pounder...... yes I know the light tanks in the same tier with the same gun have better aimtime alpha and dpm.... but someone has to be at the bottom.... way at the bottom, so far at the bottom no one will ever use it"

Not really.

Certain tanks agree with your play style others don't.

Never could make the Hellcat work for me even in it's heyday, go figure ... that thing really did not like me !

 

I used the Hellcat as a training vehicle for all my American medium and LTs it was so easy to get them to two skills back in the day.  The Hellcat of old really was a beast (as was the KV-1S)...

The E8 at tier 5 would be lolOPBroken.   It could stand to have the pen kicked up a tad, but that's really it.   It's mobile enough and flexible enough that you can use the great DPM and whittle down your parents without too much fuss.

as far as i can tell the E8 out shoots the cromwell. honestly between the cromwell and E8 i'd go E8, cromwell isnt reall all that much better other than pen and speed, the easy 8 out turns the thing. According to my uncle though thiis  was years ago could be different now, he always beat cromwells while playing his E8 turns out circling doesnt work when your opponents turret can keep up with you and still hit ya

The E8 will soon be the only Sherman at tier 6 when the New Balance changes go live. The Jumbo will only be available for gold and won't unlock any other tanks. My concern is that the Jumbo will lose it's most heavily armored turret and the derp gun will be made irrelevant. Everyone will just aim for your turret, bypassing your hull armor entirely, making it useless to even have it, and the loss of mobility compared to the E8 will only make you an easier target to hit. The Jumbo will basically become unplayable at that point.

 hopefully if that happens, seriously Wargaming leave my favorites alone you already took my SU-122-54 away from me leave the rest alone, they'll keep the stock turret on it considering it is historically accurate i pray they dpont leave the derp for it as its main gun, i don't like derps and prefer dpm over alpha
