I thought about this for a little bit and the author of this article has a very good point.

https://thearmoredpatrol.com/2019/01/23/data-a-quick-look-at-some-serious-balancing-issues-t110e5-vs-super-conqueror/

 

There are other tanks which need more attention and I am sure we could name them.  That having been said, why was the the T110E5 nerfed only to have the super conq, which is everything WG just nerfed about the T110E5. To me this is a bigger question for WG: Why do they nerf tanks only to release a new tanks that has everything they just nerfed

 

Examples: T110E5/Super conq or foch/ waffle or any 850 TD/ultra-high alpha TD's  (JPE 100, FV 4005, 183). 

 

Money alone is not a satisfying answer since they could get that with the next new thing without nerfing the old thing.  I wonder if there is something seriously wrong with them and what it might be.

The fosch isn't an american tank. Two of the formally 850 alpha td's are russian and their replacements aren't russian.

Power creep. Eventually they will buff it, everybody will grind it and the cycle will continue.

I would argue that at the height of its power the E5 was a better overall tank than the Super Conqueror is now. Granted the SC has better DPM and gun handling compared to the old E5, but the old E5 had much more effective and reliable armour overall. The hull of the SC is nothing special, while the pre-nerf E5 had a very strong hull from the front, allowing it to brawl and facehug very well. I still think it is a mistake on WG's part for introducing the SC as is though, the DPM is oppressive and when hull down nothing apart from large caliber HE can do any damage.

After they nerfed the E5, I imagine they probably thought to themselves "Well crap, we no longer have an OP hull down heavy tank with amazing gun handling and medium tank reload speed, what do we do?" 'We could finally add the chieftain sense 80% of the community has been waiting on it for up to 6 years now' "better yet, lets add the Super Conqueror to the game instead, and remove the FV215b in the process" 'Sir, the Super Conqueror modification was tested to be pretty ineffective and a waste of time and resources by the British (and yes, it did actually exist. It didn't get that new turret built out of borrowed stalinium with only a 3 pixel weakspot, or the extra armor on the sides, but who cares), and most people actually like the FV215b.' "Just make the Super Conq blatantly better than its competition in all regards except for something pretty much meaningless, that should satisfy the Teaaboos and the Competitive players."

Makes me wonder why they even bothered nerfing the E5 if they where just gonna add the E5 2 ; British Boogaloo to the game. Its makes a lot of their choices seem stupid when they almost immediately add something equally or even worse than the previous tank.

Rest assured that ANY tank that is really good or fun to play and IS NOT RUSSIAN will be hit with the giant nerf bat or removed from the game.

T110E5 is an overpowered tank that only unskilled babies cry about.


The tank is excessively good!

Because it's historically inaccurate.  

 

Like every bad tank in this game, it needs to be buffed to reality.

All it needs is a cupola buff, HP buff and DPM buff.

I feel like WG does this, for the sake of the show. In the sense that WG doesn't want the new tanks entering the game to to be instantly over shadowed by the current ones.  

 

     As far as the T110E5 balance goes. It was over buffed, and then over nerfed. My solution for the cupola problem was increase the armor for the cupola. Specifically, the ball (If you look at the cupola it's like a ball in a bowl that swivels); not the bowl. This would allow the T110E5 to go hull down again without having to worry about the hatch too much (it could still be penned, but difficult). For balance though, we'll leave the bowl or the base as is. Meaning if your hull down, and above it is hidden, but the enemy tanks get above you they can get the bowl.

 

     Lastly it needs an alpha damage buff to 440.120mm guns were supposed to receive an alpha damage buff, but it was cancelled (due to some tanks being over-buffed). I think 120mm alpha could be increased, but there should be a tier cap, like 120mm gun alpha damage goes to 440 at tier VIII, and above only (while adjusting some of the problem tanks like the Tortoise, Badger etc).
