Howdy Boom Jockeys!

 

Stage 1 - 12:00 (UTC)
E 75 TS

We have a Tier VIII heavy ready to bolster the German tech tree. Its name—the E 75 TS.

This vehicle is a fusion of all the brightest examples of German heavy tank engineering: the Tiger II, the E 75 and the Löwe. The classic King Tiger layout has been enhanced with the armor of the E 75 and the rounded turret borrowed from the Löwe. In addition, the sides have been reinforced with screens and the commander’s cupola isn’t large. All this combines to give the E 75 TS impressive protection in the front and on the sides. As for its HP, well at 1600 it’s one of the highest for its tier.

And the weapon’s not lagging behind either! This heavy carries a 105-mm cannon with an armor penetration of 227 mm with a standard AP shell and 282 mm with an APCR. It’ll take 12.3 seconds to reload, offering 360 damage with each shot. The accuracy is fine at 0.35 m at 100 m. You might think that none of these stats stand out at first glance. You’d be right looking at them individually, but together they come together to make one of the most effective weapons at this tier.

As for tank mobility, there’s no surprises here. Its max speed is 30 km/h, but this heavy picks up pace quite quickly. This means you can support an attack and get back to defend when needed.

The E 75 TS isn’t full of surprises in terms of its playstyle; this is a German heavy tank, which can both absorb hits and return fire. In fact, the solid weapon and armor will help you cope with any situation, or enemy, you encounter.

Interesting seeing all these tier 8 tanks added, I wonder if we're going to see an uptick in marathons or unique event rewards. Would be cool to see some tier 8 clan wars reward vehicles.

 

 

On a side note: What happened with discount madness this weekend? No discounts to celebrate the holiday?

In the monthly preview it says "July 4-8: Independence for America! ×5 XP Weekend & Discount Madness", so discount madness was referring only to the WG store sale which isn't referred to as discount madness?

 

An example of an event referred to as discount madness: Tier X Discount Madness

Last years holiday sale: Independence Week: Discounts & Special XP Exchange Rate

 

It's fine if we didn't get much for the holiday, C'est la vie, I was just under the impression from the calendar that we were getting discounts this weekend in game.

Is this implying that the Tiger I and Tiger II will be put on tier six and seven respectively? I ask because it says tech tree, if it is just a premium I do not think that would affect the tech tree at all since it just requires money to get it. Sorry, I know it might be just a phrase made to introduce the tank but it made me wonder so much about it.

Well, they already have premium versions a tier lower, Tiger 131/Heavy Tank Mk VI at tier 6, and the King Tiger © at tier 7, I guess they figured they'd keep going and to the E-75 at tier 8. At this rate, we'll have a tier 9 E-100 as a Frontlines/Personal Missions reward! :P

Some rustling from the German WOT community seems to be implying that, yes, a lot of German heavies are going to be rebalanced, and that may involve down-tiering some of them.

It's cool looking, I'll give you that.  Hopefully the German Curse on secret stats won't hit it too hard.

Sounds good, Now instead of just making it only available in the Premium shop in what amounts to unwanted bundles, add it to the tech tree as well so it can be purchased in-game with gold.

That would be good if it's added into the tech tree. If it's a premium then we could get it for gold, if it's just a regular tier 8 then it would be nice to know what tank it would branch off of so we could start grinding out the XP.

I see, it is good to know that such a thing might actually happen, and my guess is that they would just balance the tanks' stats as how the current premiums are at the moment (Tiger 131 and King Tiger C) with their respective historical cannons (short 88mm Kw.K. 36 L/56 for Tiger I and long 88mm Kw.K 43 L/71 for the Tiger II), and maybe making as well the tech tree ones with slightly better soft stats like the terrain ressistances and dispersions while moving/rotating turret but overall I feel they might be almost identical to the premium counterparts, with that plus adding this E-75 TS to tier 8 and rebalancing the E-100 (and maybe tinkering stats here and there on the E-75 that is already good), I think that branch could be one of the most interesting and enjoyable ones to play.

p.s: I'd also like the E-100 with the Adler turret but that would be requesting too much, so I can just dream with it, heh...

Dear god I hope not, down tiering both the Tigers woudl make them garbage. The Tiger 131 and King Tiger C are both hot garbage right now.

It all depends on the hidden stats.

How would that make them worse than they are now? Especially the Tiger II.

I mean we have a tier 6 Tiger (2 actually) and its hot garbage. Its armor is no more reliable at tier 6 and, funnily enough, its gun (the 8,8 l/56) is just not a very good gun. Its one of the worst heavy tanks in its tier. And right now the Tiger I at tier 7 is probably the 2nd best or 3rd best tier 7 heavy tank in the game (2nd or 3rd depending on if you prefer DPM or alpha (and yes Im pretty much lumping all the IS versions together as theyre all pretty much the same tank)).

 

At tier 7 we have the King Tiger © which manages to some how, despite having more armor for its tier, still be one of the worst tier 7 heavy tanks. Its armor is no more reliable than it is at tier 8 but its gun is miles worse than even the VK 45.03 (which is also more mobile and agile). The King Tiger © pays for its armor in both mobility and gun performance. Meanwhile at tier 8 the normal Tiger II, while weakly armored for tier and relatively immobile does have an amazing gun that can actually be relied on to hit targets at range. Its by far not the worst tier 8 heavy tank, nor is it the best. Its a pretty average tier 8 support heavy and its, tier for tier, better than the King Tiger ©.

 

We know what each of the tanks in question look like at the tier that every bad keeps suggesting for them and they arent good and arent better in those tiers than they are at their current tiers. The Tiger I doesnt actually need to be touched where it is at tier 7. Its got top tier DPM, more than enough to shoot its way out of bad situations and is, for what it is, fairly mobile. The Tiger II needs exactly one thing to be in a better spot: a 44mm turret roof. (I probably wouldnt argue with a DPM increase (or an alpha increase given the number of 105mm guns at tier 8 with 360 alpha) but the main thing it needs is to lose the 3x overmatchable turret roof.

Okay So I got clarification about this tank. 

 

It's going to be a premium tank and not going to be on the German Tech tree like the statement implies. 

"We have a Tier VIII heavy ready to bolster the German tech tree. Its name—the E 75 TS."

 

The statement is referring to the tank joining the German Club. Sorry for the popping the high hopes bubbles everyone.

If I didnt know any better, Id say these 3 most recent premium announcements feel suspiciously like tanks meant for the Bonds Shop thats coming up soon.
