I’m watching several streamers (all unicum level, i. e. Daki) on Twitch participating in the ranked battle mode. What I noticed is:

 

  • None of these streamers is playing any German tank
  • Most of the time on both teams (30 tanks!) there isn’t even a single German tank

 

Here and then you see either a Grille or a E50M but mostly in lower ranks battles.

 

I find this remarkable given the fact that Germany represents one of the biggest Tech Trees in the game.

 

Is this something you experienced as well?
If so, what do you see as main reason for the absence of German tanks?

Let me guess, nearly 50% are Russian, which has just a slightly bigger tech tree than Germany. Hmmm how would that come, I have no idea :)

Yes they are all pretty much useless in ranked. That whole game mode is just focused on rewarding domed turreted brawling.

Lights are beyong useless in it as well.

Completely flawed game mode. As it alienates large chunks of the player base.

Basically because while the German tanks are quite nice, they are by no means the most competitive tanks available.

 

Of course you have over-buffed abominations like the Maus but that is a different story.

 

E-50M for instance is the supposedly heavily armored medium yet in 99% of the engagements your Russian medium is more well armored then the E-50M, and it has better DPM, similar gun handling (at the range you fight on in the game) and better mobility.

 

The E-50M is a medium for long range engagements but there are generally none to be found in this game anymore due to map-design, corridors, lack of concealment and constant breaking of line-of-sight.

The Maus is awful in ranked... to slow to get to the brawl, so if your team push for a quick win you end up doing low dmg. If your team start losing you get to the brawl to late and are met with a hail of gold from russian meds.

 

Maus for me is only truely op in randoms that arent all t10, but there are quite a lot of tanks better at being top tier in my opinion at t10.

 

Maus isnt great in grand battles either as it tends to end up facing multiple type5s.

That is why I said it's a different story :)

 

Maus is a problem in Randoms and Skirmishes/CW's.

Is that a surprise that most of the played tanks are Russians? This just proves which tanks are really competitive.

Players love the fair play level and german tanks are just too powerful take example E100 such a beast of war unstoppable machine, german finest engineering.

I see no other reason but that :teethhappy:

 

I'm a bit surprised you asked such a question at first place for your decent stats and 20k battles you should already know more about the game.

 

And the real answer should be smth. like this:
