You can track non-wheelies. Non-wheelies dont have 28th century auto-aim, and they are a good bit slower.

Your point?

Well done, but I don't think that's something to brag about.

I circled jerked an E25 in my Hotchkiss (tier 7) wheelie and the guy was not able to move, let alone turn, to engage me. Even though may have been fun for me, how is it fair, or fun, to the guy in the E25 when they do not even have a chance to defend themselves at all? There is not a turret in game that can keep up with a fully functional wheelie. Aiming requires even more skill than normal...some may not have issues but a vast majority of the player base can't do it. Love driving them around but, in the end, these tanks are hurting the game for those of lesser skill. It's like throwing the Pz II J in a match and expecting the team facing it to win.

I've noticed if the red team has a t9 or t10 wheelie and green has a normal scout....its really hard to win!

I've played a single game in a wheelie and garnered north of 1600 damage in an unfamiliar tier 6 vehicle - without even really trying. Granted, it's only one battle, but I've seen enough being on the opposite side of the barrel to know they are somewhat broken.

Don't know if this is better or worse, but there's a MAD MAX 3D skin for the EBR 105.

Wow, that's almost the same complaint folks bring against arty, isn't it?  Holy correlation, Batman!

It was an E25 so anything that makes their life hell can't be all bad.

Same here. Push that idea upward of that chain of command!

Two fairly major differences. 

 

1) There's a big difference between 65 Kph and 90 Kph.

2) When you shoot a Cromwell, Luchs, or French Light tank in the tracks, it stops. It doesn't just eat the shell and keep on keeping on. 

 

Cool false equivalence, though.

You killed a Roach.  You did God's Work. 

 

That is just short of killing arty - which these things are good for as well.  Not to mention they spot up the nesting TDs before they get their full camo going.

First, I am neither for or against arty. But one issue with not being able to do anything back towards arty can be regarded in the same boat as not being able to get your gun around or traverse fast enough to fire at a wheeled vehicle. There are ways to be arty safe as are there ways to be "safe" from wheeled vehicles. I know that you should never think about going one on one with a wheeled vehicle in close quarters unless you are in a wheeled vehicle as well. The best way to deal with them is either at a distance or taking them on with other tanks. Hence why I mentioned in my post for new players (even bad). They do like chasing after things.

Maybe a bit backwards, but I don't feel sorry for a guy in an E25. This one in particular either. I do note that the fun probably left out of him especially when he just stopped moving and gave up. I did give him a pity bump before the last shot though.

As above so below. Enjoyed wrecking the E25 but did have a moment of sympathy when the person just stopped moving. Just a moment.
