The topic should be "T1E6 FUN!" ... nothing about the so called OPness, it's just fun.

It's a fun tank, but that's about it.

1. While it's mobile, the top speed won't allow you to dodge anyone who knows how to lead on a target.
2. Horrible penetration ensures that there are several tanks that you simply cannot penetrate frontally.
3. Accuracy is 0,51 do I need to say more?
4. Armor will not protect you from anything short of wet noodles and even with those you still need to angle your tank.
5. Ammo stops being effective after certain range. I mean even if you hit a spot with 0 armor, it will not do any damage, because the small caliber shells can't do anything in those ranges.

This is a tank that benefits A LOT from crew skills.
Brothers in arms, Sixth sense, Clutch breaking, Snap shot, Smooth ride, offroad driving...
+ the view range upgrades and whatnot.

Yea crew skills complement the flaws of this tank more than others, but that alone doesn't make this an OP tank.

It's OP.

Play platoon of those tanks and you will kill everything.
At close range it can kill all tanks up to III tier without problems.


Of course if you meet noob in T1E6 driving through plains straight forward you - you won't feel T1E6 OP.
It's far better then Tetrarch.

Hahahahaha you've obviously not come across a Micro-Maus or H35, they will eat you alive, I sold my T1E6 without playing a game, in my first game with the T2LT on xmas eve I got 7 kills, 6 of them were T1E6's, yeah they're OP compared to plastic tubs with wheels on...

I don't really see what's the problem. T2LT can't really fight well against H35s either and it's still fun as hell. Also people claiming T1E6 is shitty because they are killing a lot of them now in their pimped tier II tank is not really surprising, seeing as every single player, new and old, bad and good, just got one and is trying it out, most of them with 50% crew...

I killed a lot of Tetrarchs when it first came out, doesn't mean the tank itself is worthless, just the players using it.

Take a T2LT, ruin its speed, accuracy and viewrange, congrats, now you got a T1E6

no, a T1E6 is a good tank in the right hands and it can take almost all tanks in it's tier with a full clip and it should be used to ambush tanks not go charging towards the enemy

By that logic, most of the tanks in this game are OP. :facepalmic:

no, tanks are defined by role and the T1E6 is a close quarters tank and should be used to ambush rather than to rush.

Even at close range it's not that great...

Anyone who posts an OP thread after 2 battles in a tank is trolling unless they racked up about 8 kills per game and even then it could be luck, thats why so many people neg rpd you, what did you expect, i felt like negging you myself but the point has been made.

In this case its even worse as the main tank you come up against in the T1E6 is other T1E6, you will not get a decent picture of how this tank works till it gets normal MM.

I have played about 30 games in it and i don't feel like i can qualified judgment yet.

If you can get up close its deadly to T1 and many T2 but its faults more than make up for that and considering some T2 are completely immune to its gun unless you pack gold, and every tank in the game can hurt you badly as you don't have the speed of a BT2 or a tet it can not be op

In time this tank will be only played by decent players with multi skill crew and full modules in games with a lot of noobs with 50% crew and not even a net, so it may get a reputation like some of the other T2 prem, we will see

Play a T2LT then.
It is a T1E6, just much faster, with a more accurate gun which can one-clip much stuff too, with the same worthless viewrange & pen, and paper armor.
However, the 72kph will mean that you`ll actually get to ambush stuff and do effective hit&runs, and the accuracy will mean that you will reliably oneclip tanks, not only every other one due to luck.

No-no-no. Cruiser III has very similar semi-auto cannon, but more accurate hence more effective at medium range and far better view range (320 vs. 260) , which is vital for scouting and ambushing. Everything else - mobility and (paper) armor are exactly the same.

But the cruiser's gun have much higher recoil, making it's burst less effective.

Still got mine, play it every so often.  It's fun, but it's far from OP.  Both my mkini-maus and tetrarch will eat it for breakfast and you don't want to go one-on-one with a panzer II.

It's quite fast, accelerates quickly, but has poor turning, poor armour for even tier 2, and the gun's accuracy is hopeless (not tried with a 90%+ crew yet) so can't be used to snipe or even medium range dual.

Maybe with a 100% crew it may do a lot better, and maybe with premium amo you can take on a mini-maus, but there are a lot better than it, and those get even better as well once crewed at 100% and modules plus premium.

This tank is bad. I maybe keep it for its collector value, but will never play it. On other hand, tetrarch was(is) awesome.

Tbh the best use for this tank is cover for your friendly TD's or better tanks, either that or for giving the opposing teams' Micro-Maus Steel Wall! :D

i still have to master  the T1E6 because when you try shooting while moving you will miss no mather what (unlike the tetrarch) but it seems to be an ok tank to my opinion just  need to practice more with it

No armor, no accuracy, no penetration. Definetely the weakest tier 2. What the hell is the point of this tank???
