Recently I got my E5 and the more desired M48 (I like medium tank playstyle).

And, of course I couldn't but to compare the two.

What I reached as a conclusion is, why play the E5?

Don't get me wrong, I like the tank, the gun is good, armor is good (despite what everyone complains about), 

gun depression is not as good as you would expect from the american line, but pretty much workable.

The point is that after the turret buff to the M48, I feel that the E5 doesn't fit any role in the battlefield,

why play the E5 when the Patton is actually better at the same role?

Hull down the Patton feels stronger and the cupola weakspot that's now smaller made it a better hull-down fighter than the E5.

Feel free to leave your thoughts below :).

I didn't say that the tank is bad, 

just that I feel it doesn't fill a role in game.

Maybe WG should consider rework the tank?

It has a role, like any heavy tank, damage sponge, and if you keep your E5 moving and are aggressive with it (so people can't leisurely shoot your cupola) you'll do fine in it.

 

Now I agree that no medium should have a stronger turret then a heavy, that is stupid to begin with, unless it's the only advantage that medium has.

not enough, better buff to 350 and give it 14 degrees of gun depression

well yeah, thats an option as well, give it 50bs gun and frontal hull armor + mobility and we have a perfectly balanced auto loading HT for current meta to counter 268/4s and stuff

I used to like the E5, but now it has weakspots everywhere. LFP is pretty weak, cupola can be penetrated even when using the 8 degrees gun depression, poor side armor and those stupid weakspots next to the gun mantlet. It needs a gun depression buff or some armor buffs (not removing all weakspots ofcourse) so it fits better in the US heavy line.

 in last battle before i sold the damn thing, i was peeking over a ridge line and guess what - fv4005 penetrated cupola with HESH  :teethhappy: atm US ht line is just a waste of time - T1 heavy is crap, m6 is decent medium tank, T29 is still the highlight of whole line( i still dont understand how its still not nerfed into ground for all those years), T32 is outdated, m103s turret is even bigger joke than e5s, but atleast its tier 9. Then you get a slow crap version of M48A5 at tier 10.
