Okay, I haven't played WOT in a long while, so I jumped back in during Xmas and earned enough gold and XP to get the E100.  I am pretty disappointed in the lack of being able to pen, even with HEAT.  At less than 100 meters, I couldn't get through the lower plate of a 268-4 with HEAT, and I even have a hard time with other older tanks like the IS-7 and others.  I try to angle, but autoloaders rip me

 

Has it been nerfed?  Asking because I just don't know and my frustration is growing.

It is getting a buff sometime this year. I am guess you have the second gone equipped. I have seen some people spam HE. Remember space armor like tracks will just eat heat shells. You may just be rusty.

Definitely rusty, but I see folks in E100's getting great games and not playing too much differently than I do.   Glad to hear about the buff because it most certainly needs one.

which lower plate? the large flat area or the tiny slope under that? cause if your shooting at the large flat plate, you are going to be in for a bad time. that is 300mm armour at a 30degree slope and even your HEAT round will have a bad chance to pen that

 

you are actually better off shooting its upper plate at close range, as it is surprisingly thin (100mm) and relies heavily on its 70degree slope to autobounce shots. especially because you are in a tall E100, even a few degrees of gun depression can make that area completely butter.

At close range the hatches on top of the 268-8 is an easy target.

E-100 is a fun tank.  It carries plenty of ammo so I take a generous loadout of 900 dmg HE as well as HEAT.  Load some HE first forlong range pot shots.  Then switch to HEAT or AP depending on what you run into.  There isn't much you can't pen with 330 HEAT.  But the AP is nice for the overmatch against a lot of enemies.  The high damage HE will do some easy damage to side scrapers or people in nice hull down spots.

E100 is a PowerHouse tank, I do not own one but the players that I went toe to toe with playing those tanks are tuff.

2 months ago the E100 was failing at least half of all the shots it made. Practically had to play it only with HE.

 

Today I tried it and it was again the CW tank that was ... and maybe something else.

 

Stay tuned.

Not nerfed, just powercreeped. Everyone knows where to shoot it and has the pen to do so, they don't always need gold either. As for the gun, its still good you just need to know the armor profile of the new tanks. Don't think there is anything it can't pen and it has decent dpm with great alpha.
