Greetings all,

 

I am in love with the Swedish Heavies and as soon as I saw a prem one on t8 i was very hyped. Then they announced it would be rewarded for FL . So i started grinding like hell. Took it yesterday for a spin. After 30 games i came to these conclusions

1)Slightly better gun handling for a  +3 sec reload and a better mobility.

BUT 
I have been enraged by the fact that an EMIL which is supposed to play like a hulldown king with good gun depression and turret (which is why it sacrifices its gun)  is being pened in the gun mantlet. Are we serious? I am attacking also a photo where you can see i  got penned. Are we serious? Should they had lowered the hull armor , i would tolerate that , but putting a massive weakspot in the turret? 

Please write down your thoughts . Is it logical for having a weakspot when the emil1  doesnt have any on its turret?

PS. dont tell me its their product whether you like it or not

Generally i would agree with you, however,

The Emil has one strong side and one strong side alone - the hulldown position. When they put a huge weak spot on the top of the gun - something you can hide - they made it near useless.

 

So if they want to balance it that way - sure. But give it some gun handling, reload and speed in return.

If you watched some YT reviews you'd know that Emil 1951 is just bad.

It is a kind of slighty (!) better Emil I but on tier 9. What a joke.

I'm saving up for the secret tank and will pick the Emil after. Too bad about the Swede, hope the tier 9 is not a stinker. :harp:

Isnt that pointless ? I had the impression that the secret tier 9 tank will be available after the 10th episode.

 

Or is it after the 8th ?

It's a tier 8 premium tanks. Not tier 9 and not a reward vehicle.

TBH I find Emil I turret very unreliable anyway. You can get penetrated in the side cheeks if an enemy gets even a slight angle on you. It's good only when facing one enemy or lower tier tanks.

So IMO one small weakspot won't change a thing - weak turret cheeks are still a bigger problem.

Man i know that sides are weak. Thats the fun for me. You have to be seeing everyone and turning the turret whenever you see they are going to fire at you and bounce. But getinng penned on the turret? the only strong thing on emil 1951? i mean come on , mediocre mobility ,mediocre gun handling at best . Give ffs somehting to this tank. Depression and turret...

Does it even have credit multiplier like other tier VIII premiums? Or is it a reward tank like T28 HTC and doesn't earn extra credits?

I knew it would be garbage even before I looked at it's stats. Not my cup of tea. It might be a one trick pony, but in some way I don't like the fact that you can't do anything against hull-down tanks.. well most of them.
