E2 is easier to play, has a lot of armor. Use the stock turret, it has 152mm of armor all-round, combine it with the 105mm derp gun.

 

It's great fun. :great:

They're both fine all rounders, but neither is spectacular.

I'd recommend jumbo too, as I made the err of taking the e8. Although... E8 is far more like the next tank on US med line, the t20. Thin armor, adequate mobility, good view range, and barely adequate gun.

Get both. Jumbo, stock turret and derp gun for the lolz. The E8 with the 75 mm to get used to the rest of the tank line

E8 with derp. better mobility and viewrange then jumbo as the jumbo needs the stock turret which has no vr at all and the armor is useless anyway because you will always be bottom tier and people will just spam gold at you. so you might aswell go a bit faster and have better vr.

 

dont bother with any of the 76mm guns their penn is too low for T6 meds, with derp you can track tier 8 tanks and chip their health away while raking in assist damage, atleast thats how i grinded to the T20.

 

neither tank is worth keeping, grind to the T20 and sell.

E8. I play it with the 76 and do pretty okay, already reached the T20 but saving credits for my Progetto 65. 

 

E8 only because it holds up better in current tier 8 matchmaking - pretty good mobility vs useless armour unless you get into the one in a million tier 6 games in the Jumbo. Also no view range if you use the stock turret with the derp gun on that thing.

That's the same as asking if you prefer carrots or cabbage with the fish. You should know that better than anyone else. Besides, i's not either or. You can (and should) play both.

E2 with the tier5 nicely armored turret and a derp gun to boot! Lots of fun, and can be very effective.

 

And ofcourse the m48 over the stb1.

 

The stb1 got one great thing going for it, over most other meds. It looks damn good! :girl:

both are kinda crap, but e2 is probably better for a new player. But again, both are kinda crap.

 

imho, you shouldn't touch tier 10 before 10k battles or so; but anyway, there's no competition between patton and stb. Patton is excellent, stb is crap.

 

good tanks on patton line: tier 10, tier 9, tier 7. Tier 7 is great imho, but requires decent crew and probably above average player(and credits for skill rounds as std ammo has mediocre pen).

I completed the grind through the E8 recently, never bothered buying the E2. The E2's armour is good but the tank's been in the game long enough for most players you meet to know about it too. Stock turret, as mentioned, has bad view range and the derp can be fun when you're top tier but when you're not it's a long reload to hit someone for 50-100 damage and maybe an orange track crit.

 

As for the second question, I started my STB-1 grind over a year ago and I'm still at tier 8. The grind is pretty arduous as the mediums have next to no armour yet are big enough to have poor camo too. The US mediums aren't much better for camo but the gun handling is excellent by comparison.

Lmaoing hard at (most of) these absolute nonsensical replies. The E8 is the second best (non-prem) T6 med after the t-34-85. You go like 10 slower then the cromwell, and gain godly gun handleing, great gun depression, and actual mantlet that bounces stuff and a fully automatic machinegun 76 that has way more then enough pen to permatrackmurder everything if you managed to flank correctly.

The jumbo is a meme tank, that produces a hilarious moment every now and then if you play the stock turret, but the 105 will lack on t6 and up. Strictly worse then the e8 in every aspect, and if you go for the 105 stock config, your performance will be unreliable.

Jumbo derp, of course. How is this poll even remotely close. Weirdos, I say.

I loved the E8 when I played it. But that was ages ago, I dont know what it is like in the current meta. 

Jumbo derp was easymode all the way but maybe not as fun as the E8.

Only problem with the E2 is the MM puts you bottom tier constantly, end result is the 152mm of armour means nothing!
