I have this tank for a wile and when i played against it looked like a beast, now that i have it i see is not as is suppose to. After suffering with T95 i hopped that E3 will be the best tank ever. When is not, is weaker every day. If i fight against an IS7 i have chances to lose big time. As is7 is playing at turret i can't penetrate him but he can penetrate me in the commander, so  why boder  suffer with t95 when you can have all in one tank, the over powered IS7. And even the penetration is week this days, in side of is7 i make critical heat. It's disappointing, ready. Better play E4 this days, it gets bounces in front from E3, so it will become from a beast on the field in a joke, and is slow, JG PZ E100 is BC near it.

 So be careful what you wish. for me E3 is not that great.

You should probably learn to aim...

Cannot pen IS-7 with 300 pen? Lol, it's not the tank's fault, that's for sure.

 

Since I get a headache from long lines of text without using the enter key, I hadn't read the entire text until now. And some of your statements are clearly wrong.

1. If I cannot pen his cupola in the JPE100, why should an IS-7 with 50 pen less could?

2. As if IS-7 is awesome. Accuracy is not great, traverse is not great, lower plate is weak, side and rear is also weak, low HP, lower than average pen, bad DPM. 

3. You should play the E4 instead. That thing has everything the E3 has but worse, apart from speed and the turret. And if you cannot pen an E4 with your E3, again, sorry, it's not the tank's fault. 

The E3 is one of not so many tier 10 TD's who has lived his entire career with only that small alpha nerf. And for this tank, since the DPM is still great, and the armor is too, that should not even matter. Just realise, you could've been playing an AMX 50 Foch 155 or an Object 268. If you were to complain about those tanks, yes, those get hammered with the nerf bat almost every update. E3, no.

wait wait, youre saying that the tank with most frontal armour of any vehicle in the game, that has 295mm of pen, with good acc, is bad?

the IS-7 can be aparently penned through lfp or somewhere else, so i dont get the complaints. its slow? goodness sake what do you expect, that thing has 30cm of thick steel, and a big slab of it

Just because the E3 is a beast when it comes to frontal armor, it doesn't mean other tanks cannot have decent armor. Besides, the E3 has 95%+ of the frontal armor as strong when the is7 you mentioned has propably 50-55% strong. Do not give the fights you cant win, not with the E3, but with any tank. If the IS7 is hull down, wait for your arti to do the work, or keep him busy until he is flanked.No such thing as win all situations in the game, it is called BALANCE

I have to agree with OP, E3 was a let down after the T95. The thing that disappointed me most was it has a weak LFP, just like 95% of the tanks in the game. I was hoping for something like the AT2 at tier 10, or a t95 that trades good all-round armour for weak side/rear armour but nigh impenetrable frontal armour.

 

The cupola is fine and can bounce tier 10 gold td rounds 9/10 times. Why give it a common weakspot though in the LFP?

 

I still enjoy taking it out now and again, and wont sell it, but it's not the upgraded t95 I wanted. Better mobility is not a selling point when youre grinding this line , good armour is, that's (I assume) why people chose it.

Because something that is impenetrable from the front would be balanced. LoL... LFP of E3 is one of the best in the game, you can get like 270+ values in the middle, even the weak parts usually have around 230mms.

 

For OP: so IS7 is penetrating your cupola "weakspot"? E4 good? Now please tell us the fairytale about pink elephants...

Why would the e3 be unbalanced if the only weakspot from the front was the one below the viewing port? the tank already has paper sides and rear and has bad mobility.

 

Tbh I like unique tanks that have something different about them, and the e3 having a LFP like all the others just makes it a bit more bland. There are barely any assault tanks, I consider the AT2 the only one actually capable at this role, if you continue to advance in the e3 you will expose your lfp meaning that front armour is useless, with the AT2 you only need to watch your side angle.

 

Since I've had mine and found the LFP is the same as all the other tanks in the game, ie if you dont know a tanks weakspot, shoot it in LFP to pen (apart from say the VK B since the buff), I have killed e3s frontally in lower tier vehicles and felt sorry for the e3 driver, knowing how it feels.

 

I think it makes the game more interesting if there are a few sluggish tanks that when are facing you, you have to come up with a different tactic other than either:

1) Shoot LFP/Cupola

2) Press 2

 

It would be nice to be forced to think "I need to go around this tank/distract him while someone else shoots the sides/rear/perma track it then take a hit as I drive past" or any other tactics you can think of.

E3 was, is and probably will be one of the best tier 10 tds. always hide LFP, you don't need to hide all of it but half of it atleast, 295 pen is enough to make heavy armor butter. i have had is7 face hug me in E3, only for them to get penned by  me frontally. 295 will eat is7 frontal armor, you can always be a scumbag and load that OP 375mm gold round. 

 

to summarize

Hide LFP

have some support, there is no tank in game that can solo entire flanks. E3 can almost do it but even E3 needs some support.

E3 still doesn't get the respect and fear it deserves. use this to advantage as enemy gets overconfident and turn them all into burning wrecks. 

aim at weakspots

E3 isn't a beast anymore? ROFL. They removed the only real weak spot on the front (which was the 50mm thick viewport, now at 300+mm), they buffed the tracks, the cupola is still stronk af ad the lower plate as trollish as it was before. Tell me more pls.....

My problem with the E3 is the ridiculous side armor which can be penetrated from a frontal perspective with any gun the T110E3 meets. Frankly, that 44mm armor on the lower side should be buffed, since the lower plate in itself is already a big weakpoint.
