I am by no means a new player since I joined the game back in early 2013, but it took me an ungodly amount of time to reach Tier 10 on any line.

My first ever Tier 10 was the Maus, bought years before it got its armor stupidly buffed, and I junked it after only one (disastrous) game, as back then I found it to be completely lacking and its fabled durability did little against heavy gold spam.

The second one was the E 100 and that one was better, but still too slow and clumsy, and once again an easy target for gold spam.

As things are now, I've got two more Tier 10s available, the Chinese 113 and the American T110E5, but got credits only for one. I am also aware that neither is considered an optimal choice for the current meta, but I'll adapt as I've learned to do. :)

Now, the question - which one is the better choice? As far as Chinese tanks go I've got both WZ-111 1-4 and WZ-120 and like both, and found the American M103 to be very disappointing (far too many soft weakspots for a heavy tank). However, from replays I was impressed by the E5's FAR improved durability over the M103, whereas the 113 looks to me like a WZ-120 on steroids (which is a good thing imho). But this is all in theory so maybe I'm completely wrong (hence why I'm posting this), though one thing I appreciate about both tanks is that they retain good armor and firepower without trading in too much mobility (E5 could be a bit quicker on its feet but hey, we can't have everything).

 

As a small added bonus, the recently teased T54E2 (a Tier 8 American premium heavy) looks like a beast, so I'd be very happy to buy it and complement the E5, should I choose the latter.

 

... and that's it I guess. Hopefully you'll be able to help me out with this one and see you on the battlefield. :izmena::)

Well, both are out-meta. But T110E5 is better in the situation.

Hold on to your credits for now, tier 10 game play is already awful and especially for the not so strong tanks. You can use the credits to buy something else (buy the T29 back!) or fund another grind.

Seeing the amount of heavy tanks you play vs the amount of medium/light tanks I think you will feel better at home in the T110E5, the 113 is more like a medium with some better armor but not enough to perform a decent heavy tank role. On the other hand, the T110E5 has that tumor of a cupola which is prominent and most certainly a target for most opponents. Both tanks are not very good in the current meta.

 

I myself would choose the 113 because of the mobility and I would play it more like a medium

That's pretty disappointing. I do admit I still have doubts about the usefulness of Tier 10 tanks for players like me who do not take part in CWs, but given that Tier 10 is the very top one would expect it to be worth reaching.

It is why I compared it to the WZ-120 in the opening post, because that's how I would play it if I were to pick it (or like an Object 430U which might be a more appropriate comparison).

Nope, not at all worth it and no reason to be disappointed. If WG pushes you up the tiers that's for a lot of reasons other than your own enjoyment. There is nothing up there or almost nothing. I enjoyed playing the T29 or the IS-3 much more than their tier 10 counterparts. Playing the T-34-85M or the VK 30.02M is lots of fun compared to the 430U or the E50M for example.

 

There are a few tier 10 tanks that are worth it and deserve your effort and credits but i doubt you'll get any satisfaction from these two. It's a game after all, i want to spend my time doing something pleasant. Tier 10 is more like work!

Dont own either, so not going to help you decide. I am however going to put forth a thrird option: the WZ-111-5A. Since you have enough xp built up for the 113, you have enough for the 5A (unless you own that one already?) Also, because that line is Top of the Tree this month, its 30% discount on the credit cost!

Take 113. Is not out of the meta,  just a bit worse than 430u. But It still is a very decent tier X. I think the only e5 advantage over 113 is frontal gun depresion.

Out of those two I'd pick Wz-111-5A.

Difficulty and thus frustration tends to go up with the tier, especially fire rate is lower in the high tier tanks. Game is at its most entertaining at lower tiers.
