 But I'm thinking of parking it and never playing it again.

 19.26 damage ratio :great:

Don't run mine often. It like to put shells everywhere but where I want them to go. Still like it, but could be more fun.

Watched the replay. What I don't understand is why you were not spotted in the first half of the battle? Were the enemies view ranges that bad? Or is this TD like the E25 where it does not lose concealment after shooting?

 It's a little bit of both, people in the range of Tier V are notorious for having terrible view range and not knowing how to use vision / camo very well.

 Also, this TD, even with no crew members who are trained in camo, has a 40% stationary camo rating and almost 14% after firing (when stationary). At tier V, that's not bad. With a full camo crew it goes up to almost 55% and just over 19%. That's very good.

I got an Ace mastery badge after a 7 kill 1st game in mine. Haven't topped it yet.

It's a misconception that the E25 (and other "grandfathered" prem TDs) don't lose camo after shots.
 

No... it's not true that it doesn't lose its camo after shooting.

 

 The real truth is that ALL tanks lose a very large percent of their camo after shooting.

 

 The confusion stems from the fact that all TDs used to have a slight advantage over other classes because they lost SLIGHTLY less camo after shooting. WG took away this slight advantage in a patch years ago... BUT DID NOT CHANGE ANY OF THE PREMIUM TDs. (because their policy is not to nerf premium tanks)

 

 Therefore, all premium TDs that existed at that time still to this day suffer SLIGHTLY less loss of camo after firing.

 

The E 25 is one of many TDs that has this slight advantage.

 

For instance, the E 25 has a camo rating of 25 when sitting still, when it fires, that rating drops to 9 (in round numbers found at WOTINFO-Camo Values & View Range Calculator).

 

A German non-premium TD using the same gun as the E 25, namely the JagPz IV has 24 that drops to 6.

 

So, when it's standing still and fires, the E-25 loses 64% of its non-firing camo and the JagPz. IV has a loss of 75%.

 

Measurable, but not a HUGE difference.

The SU-85I is an outstanding tank. Back when my brother and I shared an account, I purchased it, not thinking much of it.....got my first Wargaming Employee kill with it. :P All in all, the 85I is very mobile, has somewhat decent armor, and a brutally strong gun, along with excellent camouflage. Add onto that the Pref.MM, and the SU-85I is a dream tank destroyer. My brother has 3-Marked his (the same one I bought) SU-85I....just ask him how much potential that little beast has. :bush:

That's actually a misconception, they changed it quite a while back and the numbers they show in game are actually accurate. 

 

> 3-marked the E-25, one of my favorite tanks. The rating goes down by quite a bit, maybe not as much as other TD's of the tier but you go from like 75% to 25%

You're close to exactly right... see reply #7 for exact numbers.
