Yeah, I know, won't happen too soon.

 

Look, this heavy was destroyed a long time ago, are there plans to bring it back in a better form ? I barely see any of these on the battlefield and my own just sits in the garage like a museum piece. In the new meta which was pushed on us in the last year or so, armor became more and more important and stupidly heavy armored tanks were introduced with less and less weakspots on the front of the vehicle, while still retained either good mobility and/or a good gun.

 

In Wot Blitz, they changed the E5 cupola, made it a lot smaller, which could be a good ideea, but you also broke the lower plate, so that would need some enhancements also. Give back some of the armor it used to have and I'll be a happy guy again. I grinded my A off to get it, why am I being punished for advancing on the american heavy tank tech tree ? It's not like you'll create an OP tank, since you basically have those already in the game:  S.Conqueror, Type 5 Heavy,  WZ 115A ? The E5 is at most a tier 9 heavy, no more, why not make it a tier X again ?

 

Rant over, it's not like you people actually read these.

LOL

 

Underperforming tank was overbuffed, WG made their money off that, after a long time it was fixed, now it is how it should have been the whole time. That ship has sailed.

Now it' time for other tanks to overperform, like the Type 5, 268 v4 and the S.Conq., WG makes money analyses data and eventually they get the hammer while others go through the exact same treatment.

 

It's called business, and this product is much easier to change than physical goods, so they can mess with it ad aeternum.

Yes, I agree. The T110E5 should get the same type of cupola that the T110E3 has, in other words, a cupola that is not a weakspot. Comparing with some other tanks in this game right now, it would still be weak after that but it would atleast be better.

E5 is fine, the cupola is a weackspot that is needed. It's the SConqueror and somehow 5A that need some turret weackspot. 

Also E5 LFP it's trollish, while SConq and 5A are easyer to pen.

Reducing the cupola dimension can be done, but it should then lose nomunal thickness in excange.

E5 has 230-240mm in the center of its cupola.

 

E4 has roughly 220mm.

 

E3 has 330mm at its thinnest...

 

I think the E5 should have it somewhere between the two TD's thicknesses, around 270-280mm-ish, just to protect it from other heavy tanks' standard ammo.

 

But to be honest, the E4 could use a bit of a buff in that spot aswell...

many people around here suggested they should make the MG port same size as patton and I agree with that.

 

maybe little bit of top speed and the tank is gucci.

It needs a decent reverse speed 10 is a joke, going wasd to avoid shots and reversing down off ridges takes a lifetime.
20 reverse and maybe a little extra HP would make it actually competitive again.

We already got too many tanks that are strong when played hulldown and we dont need e5 with strong cupola again. Patton didnt need the change and is overbuffed now, the number of hulldown tanks should have been decreased instead of increasing it until all that helps is heat or he.

PMM tanks also need a buff. Super Pershing got a pen buff while HTs were left untouched, pretty ridiculous IMO.
