I got my E100 out the garage for some blocked damage mission. Go to a building front in cover, show some side, more than 45 degree angling. And most shots are penning the side of the turret. Not even gold. Just AP. Even tier 9 tanks like T-10. Has the side of the turret been made softer in the last year or so? I used to be able to bounce any EDIT that come at me. Now I just die. WTF?

Replays? 

 

Showing the side of the turret is always risky because by angling it towards one enemy, you expose it to several others in the same general direction. Especially with a huge E100 turret.

 

Perhaps you're just getting caught out by the angles?

Someone called German tanks fan boi?.Why dont u post in e100 previous post?.By far i think this is like 7th post about e100.
But for your answer e100 is pretty damn weak now.Its rly hard to angle turret even maths teacher will find it difficult.U should angle not only taking front turret armor in concern but also side.As u said u was pen by ap u must have done something horrible.

But again i say e100 is damn weak now got killed for 400 hitpoints by bc-12-t damn it man!.Armor on e100 now sucks a lot.

In game I don't really fear the E-100 (or the Tiger)

There are a few tanks that should be tough but aren't

 

But of the Russian Obj's, there I'm more wary because there are so many, they all look the same and many have hard to pen turrets.

 

However, just like the Swedish TD players, lots of them move their tank too much,

so side shots are always just a matter of waiting

as another poster said, without replay it's difficult to tell.

the e100 still can bounce a lot of AP and APCR if properly angled, however HEAT is kryptonite for this tank. the turret is very vulnerable to it and it's the reason why i prefer the pzkwVII. my E100 gathers dust in the garage.

Over-angling, not angling the turret, unlucky highrolls on stronk enemy guns or simply karma for rerolling. Noone can tell without a replay.

Made a mistake of posting from a wrong account. All my accounts must remain super secret. So no replays.

So we can't prove anything either... rending this thread kind of pointless.

The E100 hasn't changed. If you know how to angle a tank, and when not to get hit, the E100 still works it magic. However, it never was a bullet proof tank and it still isn't. If you want to block shots, get a MAUS.

Tested it on CT servers.

I blocked between 1.5k and 4.5k every battle on that full gold meta. And packed a lot of damage too. Also the HE ammo that kills 268v4, Badger and SConqueror is a pretty nice bonus!

E-100 is trash just like most German vehicles.

Can't do a replay but I can do screen-shots. This was the final battle, the final straw. I had two prior battles with similar results.

 

First shot: Obj. 430U friendly fire at start, side of turret no angling.

Second shot: T-10 you can just about see it at the front of the tracks, that was before I got into the position.

Third shot: T-10 side of turret angled as you can see in the first picture.

Fourth shot: T-10  blocked shell.

Fifth shot: T-10 side of tracks angled as you can see in the picture.

 

I would have thought it was angled enough to bounce pretty much anything. At least it used to. Done 5-7k blocked damage like this in the past a few times against the worst of the tanks.

Now that we know your true identity, you can give us the replay, too.

But looks like overangling+highroll.

I thought that kind of angle would be enough to bounce all but the highest pen ammo in the game :(

Agree with Jigabachi. You overangled the turret sides.

 

Also that ammo loadout it's quite weird for that gun! You should robabli carry less HE and more AP. That gun lose all its fear factor when you realize enemy shoot HE...

I don't play that tank anymore. To be honest I never did. Way too slow for my liking. I only ever use it for clicker rage.

I'm grinding my way to it, instead. Tested it on CT and liked it a lot. Sure it's slow, but have too say it's quite fast for a superheavy.

What do you mean with clicker rage? :D

I think there are much better tier X tanks. But there are a lot of bad tier X (or any tier) players. When I try to play this tank with AP I feel I don't have the required skill for it. So I just spam HE. And I still manage to do a fair amount of damage to the enemy and even carry the game on a few occasions. So it's not all bad. But you will lose against good players in IS7s and Conquerors, etc. every time.
