The T110E4 is probably the biggest pile of crapfor a tier X td. It needs serious buffs to bring it up to the level of other tds. It needs one or more of the following:

 

  • better gun handling
  • faster turret rotation
  • more armor on the turret front
  • more hull armor
  • remove the commander's hatch or make it have really high armor

Maybe you don't drive it right?

Are you trying to play it as a snipy standard role TD or a brawler/assault TD/E100 light?  I get up close and play it like a light E100 mostly with rather good success.

 

I struggled quite a bit with it if I tried to play it as a distance fighter.

Most damage caused in game is in the E4. MoE x1, sadly no ace, but I enjoy it. It's a good tank. I don't think you're running it right. A tank like this requires patience, and dumb enemies lmbo

That being said, T110E4-1 sounds fun :)

Tried it on common test... Its soft like a Turd.... If it had the armor of the E3 it would be a beast..

The E4 does not need sweeping OP buffs to it. The gun is very good actually, APCR god tank.

 

I can agree the hull armor is meh, but you trade armor for a turret. The one gripe I have of this tank is that the reverse speed is so bad. If it had 15kph reverse that would help you escape. The cupola is also super bad. Fix those two things and it would be pretty good.

I mean, light tanks are not your damage dealers, and still my Sheridan beats my T110E4 in damage per game.

 

Sure, it's an isolated example, but it also shows that while E4 isn't the worst tier 10 out there, it's not that good either. Actually, it's pretty lackluster and suffers a lot in the current meta.

Any tier 10 or good gun on tier 9 tank penetrates it like it was Paris Hilton.  

On good side, it is much faster than E3 or E 100.  APCR goes through everything, so most of your shoots will count.

It has a secret weapon: Improved Type 5 Hefty HE shell, faster reload, faster shell and 15mm of extra penetration.  If you're having issues with APCR, perhaps this is a shell for you, after all it is the reason why Type 4 and 5 are getting nerf bat up the [sel edited] (OK I know it was the "gold" HE)

Still better than the E100 in every feasible way...

There was a time when the E4 absolutely dominated the meta (though this was wayyy earlier in the game, I think around patch 7.5?). It had E3-type armor, higher alpha/DPM, and wasn't outclassed by the influx of superheavy derp tanks/FV4005's which we see nowadays. This was early in the introduction of the revised American line, and the the community (particularly the RU community) really didn't appreciate it. It got hit by the nerfhammer hard.

 

Not to say that it's irrelevant nowadays, but it could benefit from some minor buffs. A HP and ROF increase would do nicely, seeing as it's been slowly powercreeped over time. Otherwise, it's still a respectable tank; hard to play, but respectable. Given the E4's history, however, I doubt that WG will be pushing it for a buff anytime soon.

Agreed, a really good player is used to platoon with called the E4 a "poor man's E100".  Platoons of 2 or 3 of these things can be awesome in coordinated close encounters.

The E4 cannot compete in the current meta. Too inaccurate to be a sniper. Too fat and slow to play mid or front line. Too many weak spots to brawl. Too slow to poke and retreat. Get's outspotted by lights and wrecked by 3 artillery which seem to be in every tier X match these days. As others have said, the superheavy meta has made it obsolete. The E3 remains viable because of it's armor.

 

Gun is terrible. I routinely track tanks with AP/APCR that I would both track AND damage with any other tier X medium. You cannot hit tracks even full broadside on any tank because the tracks will absorb all damage.

If you think that, then you should be thinking the same about MOST tanks of the game, which are in fact practically the same more or less.

 

For me almost the only tanks that are still not total crap are Lights and primarily some auto-loading style Meds.

I'd like all those buffs lol. It would be OP at least for me then. I like the tank.
