Hello, this is actually one of the first times I've posted on WoTForums, so do take my opinion with a grain of salt. I'd love to hear yours as well!

 

1. So. The E-75 TS, a "loot box" exclusive, same with the double-barreled Russian. Correct me if this is wrong.

 

I just feel this is really a 'bad move' from WG. I understand Christmas is one of their most profitable periods, but come on. I'd just like to buy it straight up if I had the option. Tanks that clearly are better *cough defender*, were sold regularly when first introduced.

 

2. The armor doesn't check out. Now, call me skeptical, but the armor stats on Tanks.GG is not even close to the ones advertised in the Youtube video that came out today.

 

"While the upper plate is 256 mm thick"

 

Here's Tanks.gg....

 

3. Those weak points. Oh boy, the ranger finders should NOT be weak points, for example. The American T29 back in the day had those as weak points before they removed them, and the tank became so much better now!

Is WG trying to 'balance' this, or just making the German tank worse than the Russian weak point wise? Opinions? Given, the normal E-75 has this as well. Which could be the reason.

Perhaps the Tanksgg website has old statistics? And the Youtube video has new? What's your take fellas

I don't think it has 100% been confirmed that is a loot box exclusive and even if it is it will likely be sold later. The range finders don't have a hit box.

     The IS 3A was sold at a later date.  Maybe they will sell the double barrel when they actually have a tank line implemented.  How many people actually play their Type 59, or IS 3A after all the hype died down.

In the video, they speak of the weak points on the "balls" aka the rangefinders.

It'll be in the loot boxes this year and then I sure if they do another Black Market deal it'll be available there.

 

Having a tank not sold before and available for the first time in the loot boxes is just another ploy to get people to buy them. I'll be at the door looking for some tomorrow.

I still play the is3a, it's a favorite of mine.

According to the 3D model they are not hit boxes and mostly 400+ mm but there's a tiny sliver of 60mm right along the side of the the mantlet so it's likely a weak spot behind the range finders. Have not seen them mentioned in the two reviews I've seen.

Pretty much every time a new tank comes out they let the CC's play them early so they can get reviews out.

CCs have access to them early for content creation.

Yeah, so I got some confirmation on this topic from a CC. Armor on TanksGG isn't the one in the live server.

Upper plate numbers at tanks.gg would seem to be close. 120mm@60 degrees from vert (E75 hull angles) is 240mm/around 210 VS AP/around 226 VS apcr.

Also, if you hover over the range finders, you will see that the "weakspots" are only a tiny portion of those two areas. It will get hit on occasion but certainly isn't something people will be able to target with any regularity. You'd have better luck trying for the copula even with that viewport blocking it, IMHO.

Try actually watching the video on it. More specifically at 2:30.

Skill4tu hates this tank, and has no problem saying so as it is the title of his review. However, even he admits that he is not a good heavy tank player. 

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ytLMY5WnDIw&t=1308s

 

Quickybaby practically asked the tank to marry him. He is such a shill and it is so completely obvious it's almost sickening how much he tries to sell bad tanks. He is universally considered the most disingenuous reviewer in the entire game. Would you expect anything less from a guy who stupidly says at the end of every video, "You've Been Epic!". He is so much of a shill that he doesn't even realize just how disingenuous he really is. No Quickybaby, people haven't been epic and one day you're going to realize just how much of a liar you really are. It's like telling a bum on the street that he is a total winner every day. It's either completely a false pretense, or it's actually a snide remark meant to insult everyone who obviously isn't epic. Either way all you need to know about Quickybaby is his false, fake, snide, condescending, and disingenuous tag line, "You've been epic". That's all you need to hear to understand what this troll is all about.

Guido played it yesterday and had probably the worst time anyone could ever have in this tank. I don't know Guido though so I can't say if he is a heavy tank player or what. I just know that he said it isn't good and here is the clip for you. You can watch his entire video of his time playing the tank yesterday if you want to cringe and feel very bad for him. It was very painful to watch.

 

Right now the early reviews of this tank are mostly bad, sometimes very bad. This tank has a lot of issues, some hidden from players, such as the weak spot bulge on the side of the tank just under the turret. You have to take into consideration that right now the player base does not know the specifics about how to take out this tank. And yet, it's still a bad tank. Just wait until more regular players know about it's weaknesses, especially the huge turret ring and the weak spot when side scraping. 

 

I stand completely by my earlier statement that this a worse Lowe, so far, a very worse Lowe. And of course if you already have a Lowe I don't see any reason to get this tank. If you want a premium medium German tank then that is the issue. This company really just needs to make a decent tier 8 German premium medium tank. But for some reason they seem hell bent on NOT doing this.

​Agreed. I'm guessing that it's going to be stronger than the new double-barreled tank. The "reverse-auto-reloader" is absolutely OP. The DPM is highest AFTER you dump the first two shells. That's going to mean more than firing both barrels at once and waiting for an agonizing reload.

 

The E75 TS will be in the loot boxes, then it will most likely be a black market special, followed by a package sale in a couple of months. IMHO, anyway.

I've seen him not recommend premium tanks many times.
