Well done, PowJay, +1 :medal:

 

I copied the URL, next time I find the courage to enter the general chat I will try to convince at least one 'tinfoil milliner' to read it (if I can detect one who is able to read that is).

 

By the way, this thread should be pinned here (as suggested before) and in the newcomers' forum.

You've just ruined European tinfoil industry. :(

Yep, total panic on the stock markets today.

 

Good news might be that people will now have a better idea on how the game works which will make WG sell more tanks.

 

More tanks=more steel, so:

 

Sell tinfoil, buy steel

I went for a medical a couple of years ago. Nurse "Mr Wellsley you are as fit as the average twenty three year old". My face clearly lit up with joy as I am considerably older than that. Nurse "Please don't over excite yourself Mr Wellsley, the average twenty three year old is now very unfit". That was me put back in my box.

 

Went for an eye test. Pretty young SA optician says "Sir, your eyes are fine" which whilst I smiled and nodded she continued with "...for a sexagenarian" which whilst accurate, was no less soul destroying.

Back on topic.  Has Mr Wellsley posted a Replay yet?  He knows the rules, no replay, didn't happen.

There's a popular one, alright and one I mentioned in my OP.

Nonetheless, it does take an experienced TD player to get the best out of it, IMHO, and I am an experienced TD player with most of my battles in this class. Other people simply cannot get the best out of it and unless it is universally game-breaking, then I don't see it as OP.


 

That final part is my opinion, of course. ;)

So the E25 is faster than anything in the tech tree, stealthier by far and keeps its camo on firing, and has a high RoF whilst invisible and ISN'T OP?

OK.

I feel the E25 is ludicrously strong.  Certainly on paper, the stats are very good.  The gun, although technically a T5 gun (may be a T6 version of the T5 gun actually), is more than adequate for 95% of what it meets ( T8 heavies/super heavies aside).  If used to its strengths I feel it can influence every single battle it is in more than pretty much any other tank in the game.  Even in very poor MM the tank has crazy mobility and even more insane camo and great view range, it makes a very good spotter and soon racks up the assisted damage.

 

I have made a post (a bit tin foil) that suggested there are several tanks in the game that get extra special treatment when it comes to MM and the E25 being one of them.  It always get's matched against itself and in sometimes amusing ways, like this battle just the other day:

E25 is the first thing I look for on the red team... if they have one and we don't, our chances of a win have dropped. Most OP tank in the game in my limited battle experience. Get that sinking feeling when you have 6 tanks left and they have one... trouble is, their one is an E25 driven by a seasoned vet. It's not even a fair fight.:(

In the previous battle some asshat SPG on my team decided it was wise to fire a shell at the tank I was facehugging.  I decided to return the favour, using the excellent FF-on system we have in WoT.
