  So how do you guys feel about this tank?

it can snap shot, it can ram to save your life (like on kharkov at end), it has 390 alpha dmg great for tier 9 med, basically 3k dpm, good hull, doesn't need gold unless u want to mark it i guess, like what happened on 3/4 replays, the tank is so damn fun, best tier 9 IMO

Are u guys also doing good in this tank? Or am i just lucky? or is this tank just perfect for me or what?

Currently i have only 57% winrate, 176 battles, 86.8% marks and 2558 dmg per game which i'm quite satisfied with, how do u guys perform in this beast tank imo?

Oh and that 6.4k dmg on Paris.. i'm so angry for what i did at the end :( 6.8k dmg gone cuz of me being a complete noob

I think it's great and fun tank.

 

It's just my personal opinion, because I don't have one in my garage...

 

Still I think that Leopard PT A is the best tier IX medium tank.

 

Great and accurate gun, decent alpha damage and penetration + nice mobility.

 

That's probably everything what you need to have one of the best medium tanks in this game.

Haven't it but, in my experience it's a quite bouncy tank. But i never felt it special...

Back when I played it gold ammo was not available for credits, armour was actually quite well balanced and the E-50 was a very good medium indeed, more accurate than the T-54 and Patton (unlike now) but with lower RoF.

 

Nowadays with 220 pen you almost *need* to spam gold to be competitive in this thing with the huge inflation of armour, the kneecapping of accuracy as an important balancing stat etc. It's still an ok medium with AP but it's much better with gold.

Only 57%? Bro, that's still a really nice number.

 

My Leopard PT A is sitting with 55% if I remember correctly.

 

You should be happy with those numbers.;)

Leo PTA? Hell no :P E50 has 0.28 accuracy also, and leopta bounces 1 shot every how many battles? Get the E50 man, u will see what i mean.. or at least play it on the test server, test server opens in a few days, u will see what i mean :)

''Best tier 9'' lol t54 is way better if you refer to meds,e50 has paper turret and it's quite slow for a medium.

Well 220 pen is enough for basically everything except VK's, Defender's, you only need gold for super heavies and a T95, u can pen almost everything else, u don't always fight heavies anyways, except for that Paris replay where i spammed gold in the city like a crazy bot. 270 gold cant pen a type5 anyways so u dont need gold for that lel

you should play it again some time, you might be surprised :)

57% is really average for a tier 9 med imo, 58% is where it starts to be nice

T54 is awesome yeah but the E50 needs less gold and i perform better in my E50 for some reason

Yeah, Leopard PT A is a "paper" tank, but it's 105 mm gun and mobility compensates that.;)

Well im comparing the Leo PTA and E50 now in my garage, E50 has like 0.5 better reload, and 0.01 better accuracy,  268 pen is amazing for leo pta, leo turret turns faster, same gun depression and aim time, E50 has 50 more hp, leo wins in mobility but E50 gets to 50kmh quite fast imo, And then u look at the fact that E50 can ram and bounce shots... It depends on your playstyle i guess, if u want to snipe and stay away from enemies, then leo is ur best bet, but if u want to be aggressive like me, E50 wins by far :P and i think for the average player the E50 is much better

Yeah, depends what "playstyle" you prefer or like much more.

 

Well, I like to be as a "sniper" tank, but I'm not against "aggressive" tactics as well.

It's quiet slow already by default, and worse yet. frontal hits tend to damage your engine (transmission in the front) and with a damaged engine the E-50 moves and turns sooooo slowly that you feel like you are moving back in time. Not having +300mm pen premium shells able to deal with those overbuffed super heavies is another downside.

I also like it, but I wouldn't call it the best. Skoda t50 is quite on par with it imo, only because it can pop out, dish 1k~ and go back in cover and reload for 16 secs.

E-50 is without doubt most versatile one. Only things that E-50 lacks is real turret armor and overkill APCR.

I dont get shot that much in the turret tbh

And 270 is enough, i never fight super heavies from the front, if u can aim then 270 is great

The E50 is awesome & I love mine!

However with the recent turret buffs to various other tanks. (Especially the Patton)

Plus the turret buffs coming next patch to the british meds.

That is a very hard question to answer.

(The T54 firing premium was always considered the best tier 9 med)

 

Cheers!

It's still the best tier 9 IMO, but these two are only "limiting" factors.

Its the most fun tier 9 med in my eyes. ramming the snot out of tier 9 heavies never gets old. hell you can even come out top ramming an IS7 ( not by much)

While E50 is by no means a bad tank, my vote would have to go to M46 Patton (even the unbuffed version).
