Yep you guessed right, i bought T26E5. 

At this point i just think this tank is some [edited]. Imo its insanely overrated.

Shitty accuracy and horribly slow/sluggish.

 

What do you think??

With old MM is was slightly OP with new MM I'd say it's balanced...

But still slightly OP.

 

Since almost all other tier VIII tanks are being destroyed by this new MM, the Skopriong G, Patriot and Defender can still compete.

It's everything T32 wanted to be.

Can't see what's so overrated with it.

For the armor T26E5 has, it's very mobile. I would suggest loading up some tanks.gg and checking how you can abuse the armor.. especially the turret :)

I know what you mean, but i just end up in situations where i thought it would do okay? but it just isnt. And when im engagin at longer distance, i just feel i miss and ding everything. To me, it just seems like its too overrated. :/

I'd agree, it was very good but I'm finding the Defender is better with the new MM and with the number of heavies we're seeing now.

I bought it too, I have to admit that probably due to me being average also but the tank does not seem as OP as reputation has it. I find the T34 more more comfortable at higher tiers while the T26E5 is more so against lower tiers.

the question is ... what do you mean  with "overrated" ?

do you taught the t26e5 is OP? ... cause its not ... but its still a premium tank that is better than most "normal" tier 8 heavy tanks ...

Don't try to play it like a (Soviet) heavy tank, play it more like a medium US tank.

I bought it because I thought it was OP. Instead I got a useless (..something). The low alpha is awful in the current meta, trading with 390+ dmg heavies. It does have better penetration and somewhat better mobility than the T32, but other than that there are only disadvantages. Much worse turret armor and less view range makes this worse than the T32 imo. It's more of a slow medium tank than a heavy, and we all know that tier 8 meds aren't exactly the stars of WoT.

It plays like a super pershing

 

It's the same old story though, a lot of people check tanks.gg and call something OP, but when it's played you find it isn't actually as OP as people claim

How well you do in a tank has no bearing on how OP it is.

Yes yes, we need to go on a website and look at the graphs to see if tanks is OP or not. It's something along the lines of "oh look this tank is ok, it feels good in certain situations and bad in some other situations, but this graph on 3rd party website says that people get 5% more win rate on this tank, so I guess it's OP". I mean, WG introduced 2 T8 premium heavies (Liberte and T26E5) that are actually not heavily flawed piece of crapand suddenly all hell broke loose.  

 

Same thing I said for Defender, people are really blowing that thing out of proportion, when I said it's not really that hard to deal with it was usually followed by "actually Warzey, this website disagrees with you, noobs have better win rate, it says so on this graph" or something like "actually Warzey, when you go on tanks.gg and angle it at this specific angle it's impossible to penetrate by T8 tank". When I show them the replay where I wreck the mighty Defender in a 1v1 fight with a bloody Tiger I (H) it is usually followed by "but.... but... you're purple and that guy is orange noob, if an average player was in that situation he would just [edited]roll over and die".

Defender not hard to deal with? In what world do you live in?  If I am engaging a defender , I wil prob take more dmg and need to be more carefull engaging it than against any other tier8 tank. Its not unkillable, but it signifiantly harder to deal with than an is3 for example.

It's better than most T8 tanks but out shadowed by the retardedness that is the 252 and Shitsler.
