After the disastrous trainwreck that is the Grille 15, I have a ton of Deutsche Tank Destroyers and OP crew members to fill 2 Mausë.

 

Eventually I'll unlock the T-55A, which will be good for further crew training, but the question is:

 

Leopard 1

 

E 50 M

 

Ideas?

First of all: Grille 15 and E50M are the best and only two german tanks, that can hold up in today meta. Grille 15 is an outstanding tank. If you fail in it, its not the tanks fault. Just sayan.

By all means. I entirely agree with you. But I'm really looking forward to buy it back... :D

E50M >>> Leo 1

Leo 1 doesn't really have an accuracy advantage, they both share the same base dispersion and while Leo has a slight aiming time advantage, E50M has much better soft stats so there's not really much of a difference.

It pretty much comes down to if you want slightly more DPM and speed, or armour. Also take into consideration that the gains the Leo gets are pretty minor (+250dpm, +5km/h, +1.5hp/t) while the armour on E50M compared to Leo 1 is pretty substantial.

first of all, id pick whichever is worth more, then id sell it and buy a real tank...

 

truthfully though, why choose either?.. a weak medium, or a slightly better but still weak medium? would be better to grind a different line that doesn't have so many useless tanks in it....

 

id use it in the Jagdtiger and WT auf 4 if you don't have them, and the 4h for low tier.. and that's about the only tanks id pick from german line, rest could be deleted and it wouldn't bother me

Nothing makes me smile more than ramming heavy tank in my E50 M and then to be called a CHEATER!!!

I grinded leopard I during x-mas only because it's something like a "old friend" (I can't really translate exact term he used to english ;-)  ) of my most favourite unicum streamer. He almost doesnt play it anymore because of obvious reasons, but I just wanted to try that "paper would-be sniper tank" . To my surprise I had pretty good stats with leo PTA, and I when I played few battles with Leo I, I had decent stats as well.

 

But .. there is really no reason to play Leopard I. Yes it has excelent sniping gun, but if you want to play medium with good accuracy and fast aiming, you can also Cent AX, or Buffed Patton, or good old E 50 which has only worse dpm.

 

If somebody thinks about grinding one of the 2 german mediums lines, the logical answer is E50. If somebody wants to experience leopard paper sniper, I think it's better to keep Leo PTA in garage, because it can still meet tier 7,8 .

 

Leopard I should be just buffed. (like many tanks that were left on the ground, suffering from powercreep). They don't need to give Leo necessarily turret armor to make another hull down medium, they could instead improve its gun stats, to make them best in the game. Then Leopard would be still usefull with its paper armor if it had the best gun or one of the best guns in game.

I'm kind of planning to maybe someday sell my Panther ll and go for Leo. Maybe. Someday. Neither of them are really tempting tbh.
