I can't even begin to fathom the reasons for keeping this vehicle in the game in its current state.

With a fully equipped tank and crew, this joke of a tank can achieve 3,271 DPM. This tank is at tier 7 in case you forgot.

It has INSANE camo (61% with full equipment).

1.25 sec aim time and 0.28 accuracy.

 

And this tank competes with new players in their tier 5 and 6s. What an experience.

Super pershing was nerfed and a refund was offered, so don't use it's premium status as an excuse.

 

It's also almost exclusively used as a stat padding/seal clubbing tank:

 

 

Rant over.

There are only like 4 good maps for this tank in the game. On all the town maps it's really not easy to play it.

Not a very good joke. I never get to laugh when I face one.

On all those same town maps, it's even less easy to play most (if not all) Tier V/VI against it. Personally I don't think the E25 is OP, it's just one of many utterly idiotic designs which never should have been introduced in the first place.

It isn't OP, because bad players still suck in it.

 

It's horribly broken, that much is true.

you did know the rhm among others and even a few T6 TD's can also get this kind of camo right? they are a little more deadly to play against as they can pen pretty much anything, of which the E25 cant, as 194mm pen isn't even that good for a TD.. there are more just the same as E25

even the T6 jp pz 4 (it gets the same gun) can get over 50% camo...

the thing about E25 is that it still gets the better camo when firing, which imo, it shouldn't have got.. but its premium so it'll never change

Wait until people soon drop their improved equipment on that tank. We will see you back again with some more rant:popcorn:

Are you going to give up your Type 59 in return for the E25 being removed?

Yeah man! Let's complain about a tiny broken tier 7 TD with high skill cap while apes in Mauses destroy tier X games! Priorities, fck yeah! 

Also, I know it's not how you make plural form 

Also, learn difference between broken and OP ffs

E-25s are incredibly annoying little ****s, but I wouldn't really call it OP.

Super pershing was nerfed and a refund was offered, so don't use it's premium status as an excuse.

 

And we all know how well that went. As it's the reason why they won't ever do it again. It's like if you bought a 65 inch 4K TV, and suddenly the store comes and gives you some money back saying "your TV is bigger then your neighbors TV, and looks better. It's not fair to him. So here, take this instead" And gives you a 32 inch "HD ready" tv instead. It would no got well would it?

 

But then again they thought about nerfing it back in the day. But decided to remove it from sale instead. As the SP was "allowed" to stay as they nerfed it. Then again, the SP is way better now then pre nerf anyway. As the 2nd spaced armor plate is not a part of the hull armor, and the pen is way higher to. Sure the camo is good on the E25. But you gotta remember that this was released when TD's had a different camo value. The Pak 40, the 88, Dmax, SU-85i and E25 are of the old breed. They have the pre nerf TD camo and view range values. Dmax even more so if he moves back a little vs say the Nashorn or Emil when he fires.

 

It's not a tank you see often now anymore. As the band wagon from the Xmas sales has died off. Population did not increase that much either,  well way less then I expected.

Is it OP? Heck no. It's camo value is all it has. It has a tier 5 gun. 150mm pen, and an alpha that won't make many tier 8 tanks run scared. So if you know he is, you gotta have a way out.  Because if you start to take hits from him, and allow him to farm you. Then is it's more on you. As then any TD would eat you alive. Considering how many shots he needs to kill anything.

People who don't even have E25 are always calling it OP.

 

What they don't notice is all the bad games, where you are fighting heavies with a tier 5 gun, on corridors maps and with a TD with no turret.

 

In tier 7 premiums, tanks like IS-2 Berlin are way more broken in current meta... but baddies dont complain about that because hey its a Russian heavy so it's supposed to be OP.

E25 is only broken in open maps. When ever I'm in corridor map I'm pretty useless.

 

Wargaming no longer nerfs premium tanks

Also, that stupid a$$ argument that poor new players meet it and get rekt. Oooh, that's so sad. They surely prefer their face to fall off from 122mm IS shell.

If it was that OP I would play it more, I don't play it that often because there's like 3 or 4 maps in the game it's actually useful on.

When it got introduced, I stopped playing for two weeks or so. You had multiple of them in every team. These days I rarely see them and I hope that WG will never sell them again.
