So while I never expected it to be a walk in the park, I am having some trouble with the E100. Still with the default gun, and I am getting better at wiggling and angling (So...much....gold) but at the moment overall my rating is pitiful with the tank. I struggle to get above 2k damage each game (while I can easily do that most games on my leopard 1, for example.) and it just feels people focus me hardcore.

 

Interesting I don't have issues with arty. Big spar liner and arty barely harms me.

 

Does the large gun make things better? I don't fire gold.

 

Any other tips besides getting good at angling armor and staying with team?

Let's see.....

  1. Do research on youtube and the forums on how to play it right
  2. Outfit the E-100 with  spall liner rammer and vents (or the like)
  3. Use only premium rounds to ensure penning at a maximum
  4. platoon with two others to watch your flank
  5. rush out in the open and die quickly
  6. rage in the game about playing with tomatoes
  7. rage about others using premium rounds though you used them yourself
  8. post on the forums  suspected cheats like a player actually using cover or aiming for soft spots
  9. post a final forum post about how the game is unfair and state you are quitting
  10. come back in two days play some more

Id use the Higher aplha gun and poke around corners the best you can. Right now the tank is on the weaker end of things so you gotta make do the best you can. Obviously the lower plate and the Flat square around the gun is where everyone is Aiming at you. Try to bait a shot into your angled armor and shoot them and back to angling as fast as you can.

 

The tank is supposedly getting a buff in the future so if you dont like it then keep it around still.

Oh I will never sell any tier 10 I get, so that isn't a concern. I am getting better at the wiggling of hull and turret to bounce shots. It's just offense that is tricky. I am very patient so will earn the 60k xp for the big gun.

I have found smaller gun really rewarding. I never shoot gold and had no problems. It shoots pretty fast and pens when you aim. Big gun is walk in the park.  On the other hand, armor is garbage, even more with all gold and gold he shot these days. Shoot and hide.

Well the fire rate and damage isn't bad. But often if I go to the front, it can't compete against other superheavies. ofc I can handle other E-100's since I know where to shoot, but a type 5? Yikes.

 

And yeah the armor can be nice some games, but most games people will fire all the gold at me. I kind of expected it but in a way its a surprise since the lower glace plate is so huge and easy to pen.

HEAT-100 isn't half bad. It most notably counters the Type 5, and does decently against many matchups. Without HEAT or when using the 128mm, however, it tends to end up being strictly worse than the other superheavies.

 

Fun --> HEAT-100

F2P --> 128mm

-Don't use a spall liner in an E-100... Its stats are already weak as it is

-Yes. You should fire gold, otherwise don't expect anything positive.

-You shouldn't let your enemies aim, in other words don't expose yourself for long, peek and shoot. Don't be the brawler in the front line when it's an all T10 battle.

E100 is not arty-proof,  or  Type 5 proof,  but fears tanks more than both of these barrages.  With a decent roof of 65mm, thick tracks and wide side-skirt screens, E100 takes HE quite well. For instance,  E100 rather would take 500 damage from T92 or Type 5 in an encounter,  than take 3x  320 damage hits from object 140 or 907.  E100 counters Type 5 very hard with the top gun and HEAT ammunition, as 334 HEAT makes Type wince, as well as 750 damage, wheres Type 5 will be stuck doing only outer splashing hits. 

 

E100 suffers alot though with some crucial flaws. Much like the old object 268, E100 armour-piercing velocity is subpar. The HEAT, is downright awful. With subpar tier ten accuracy, this makes open maps a nightmare with enemies far away. Of course they decided on buffing object shell velocity, not E100 though. lf they just increase the HEAT to the AP velocity, it is a huge improvement. With tanks like 60TP Lewando and T110E4, E100 gun can seem really sad at times.  Another large problem, is the 40mm tank deck, that has it get overmatch alot. ln my honest opinion, as with other superheavy tank modernization and buffs have went through, they need to increase this to same as the turret bottom, at least 55mm.  The gun depression also loses -1 degree, with the top gun, l think it should remain -8 instead of dropping to -7. They should take back the side armour nerf, and raise it back to 130mm.

 

Who knows what WG has in store for E100  2019. But those buffs are all l think it needs.

The irony of using an unoriginal meme to call my comments unoriginal probably went unnoticed by you but good try. Boring but good try.

I was going to create one using "Martyrdom of St. Ursula", but I couldn't be bothered opening Photoshop and frankly, it wasn't worth the effort.

Please do. That one would have been worth it.

I am really hoping the top gun helps. Doing so badly in this thing right now. Maybe tier 10 heavies aren't my thing in general since I don't fire gold out of principle and standard pen of heavies is rough. Least my leopard 1 has 268 standard pen which I can work with. 2.3k average damage with 64% winrate atm in my leopard 1. Where as this thing is 1.5k average damage with 43% winrate.

 

I mean, this is even worse than my wz-111 5A which has 2k average damage and 46% winrate.

Unlocked the real gun for the e100 finally and I am noticing significant improvement in my results. Winrate, w8 and damage per game are rising. Thank goodness. Won't be mildly stressed out anymore :>

i use more HE and it tends do better damage with less bouncing.. i have the big gun.  i rarely use gold.. Love the tank.

bad enough i get attacked by Gold shooting auto loaders.. Wish war gaming would limit gold use on auto loaders. or have only 2 on a game at a time. Not like 4 or 5 at a time.

I am a lousy heavy player, but I absolutely hated the E100

 

It's weaknesses render it virtually unplayable. Case in point:

 

1. 246 penetration for the top gun is not enough. That isn't even enough to handle most Tier IX mediums and heavies.

2. The premium HEAT shell for the top gun can't do anything against the spaced armor of Super Conquerors, so that isn't a solution

3. Bad aim time at 2.9. You are vulnerable while trying to focus in on the enemy. Something like a K-91 will simply shred you while you aim.

4. While the armor is decent if angled properly, it is unreliable, and players will simply press 2 to go right through your turret cheeks. 

5. Slow speed and large size make you an arty magnet. Can't relocate if you get into trouble.

 

Last I checked, the tank had one of the worst win8 and win% of any tank in the entire game. It is in the absolute basement in terms of performance.

 

to me, it is one of the very few really *bad* tanks in the game.

 

It makes tanks like the ARL 44 look fantastic. 

 

I sold min and grabbed an JP E 100 , which isn't great, but at least I can contribute to battles now
