Does anybody know if they are going to buff the e100 inithis next update 1.5?

 

I've been looking all over for clues haven't seen a yes or no so I figured I would ask.

Don't think it is in 1.5, no.

 

If it were, they would have already announced what the buffs are, I'd assume the E100 buff is going to be in 1.6.

ok so what makes the e-100 so under powered? because so far, and Im no where good at the game in general but I really dont see any downside to that tank - its the first tier 10 that Im actually doing ok in after 200 games - the only thing that I find annoying are low profile tanks

Its my understanding that buffs will not happen until they get the ammo restructure do e and then they will be redoing the lower tiers first and tier 10s last.

More (over)power creep than anything else. There have been several vehicles added that are all but immune or actually immune to E-100 standard ammo frontally. Meanwhile the E-100 has a large weakspot vulnerable to all Tier IX and X and a turret front that because of shape can be easily shot through with HEAT. And of course the Type 5 can derp it to death with huge damage premium HE.

 

WGs design philosophy changed and the E-100 got left behind, obstensibly because of realism. When the game has things like WGs version of the 268v4 (more than 50% overweight vs. historical) and the Type 5 (100% fictional tank).

Flat armor, sluggish, standard AP ammo with meh pen in comparison to a lot of these newer tanks, not that accurate, bad reload, extremely vulnerable engine (although what poorly designed German tank doesn't have one?), etc. Most of the other heavy lines for the Germans are also generally far better, and involve less of painfully grinding through the Tiger II. Overall most other tanks out-perform and out-compete it pretty readily. Nice alpha sure, but doesn't change the fact that it's a brick on tracks.

It will not be buffed in any meaningful way. Just fluff.

Well of course. We can't let filthy Germans compete with the glorious Soviets, can we?

They'll buff it to be good, so they then can nerf it the next patch after to a worse state then it isn't now.

It by nature cannot be buffed. It is a giant slab of medium-thick armor which all guns can easily penetrate from almost any angle. Its gun relies completely on premium ammo which will be nerfed as well. It needs premium ammo to shoot, most tanks do not need premium ammo to hit it back.

 

Only way to fix these German slab boxes is a gigantic buff to the 12.8, like 1,000 DPM increase. If their armor is crap, mobility is crap, they need fearsome firepower. This would fix Germans all around in most cases. Not 200 more DPM than good tanks, but 1000 DPM. But of course, this cannot happen, so they cannot be buffed in any meaningful way.
