So like many of you I got the   T 26 E5 rental and started playing it. And I can't make it work, ! I can't pen anyone, everyone pens me, and I am dead in like 3 minutes...  I am better playing my Super Pershing than this thing. What I am missing?

All I can say is it's a ridge fighter like the T32 or the other Pershing line tanks, with the equivalent of the gun/reload of a Tiger 1.

Play it more like a medium and use your dpm and pen to harass mediums or flank when you can.

 

Also to note: It's generally worse as a heavy than the medium Super Pershing due to it's armor layout, but it's weakspots are also a lot smaller (it's also faster if I remember).

Use the terrain well and it's not bad (assuming you wiggle and move so your cupola isn't sniped by everything).

The pen on it is more than adequate. You need to treat it more like a slow medium. Get hull down where you can and hit weak spots.

It's only a heavy when it's top tier, which isn't much. I usually go with the mediums and add some firepower. I like the SP better too.

Well I agree with Mr.N-choke,and Rennix. Its best is as a Ridge fighter. But not every map helps this vehicle. And the MM really hurts this tank as well. Tough go with us average players.

Use the mobility to avoid eating a lot of enemy shells. It is an excellent tier 8 tank but probably harder to play than the Super Pershing where you just slowly keep your front toward the enemy and shoot gold premium special rounds.

Thanks for all the help, I followed you'alls advice and I did much better. But I  doubt I will by it, I enjoy my Super Pershing much more.
