An additional tip for this tech tree, 1st unlock the tracks then the turret and then whatever else you like.

I unlocked the top turret of the E 50 two days ago...

... from that time, I brake one damage blocking (personal) record after other ...

... in one battle (yesterday), the frontal part of this turret blocked 3 of the 4 hits, with premium ammo, of a Grille 15.

I look forward to buffing my E50 crew and probably making MoE progress as people try to yolo to the E50M.

 

Don't get why WG sell XP boosters as I grinded the Sheridan line from T4 to T9 in something like 7 days when it was ToTT using only Prem Acc and ToTT buffs, I'm not exactly the best player either ...

That e50 is such junk. Heavy, slow, barely turning, awful stock gun with no pen, like playing tiger II a tier higher.

Thanks to ToTT, I purchased my next Tier 10 Tank (I have so many researched now but just don't buy them until they are on Discount) < With exception if they are commonly used in Clan Battles.

Mate, probably you are talking about another tank, not the E 50 that can runs up to 60 klm/h and has traverse speed 33,38 degrees per second (without the driver's Clutch Breaking skill and BIA and/or Food).

That's the one! Not impressed by it but maybe it's because I played VK 30.01 D recently and its speed and agility was amazing.

You are not wrong about the stock E 50, it is pretty bad ... but not that bad ...

... that is why I say, 1st unlock the tracks ... the new tracks allow you to mount the (already available from previous unlocked tanks) tier VIII 8,8 gun that is pretty decent ...

... then the turret, for damage blocking ...

... then the engine ... leave all other upgrades for the end.

E50's issue is that it's a competent all rounder.

 

It's not top of the class for anything other than ramming (once slammed a Progetto for 700hp lol) and it's camo rating is completely garbage.

 

Has ok alpha, useable armour and gun depression, decent accuracy etc but will never excel. It's up the end user whether a decent all rounder is better than a focused tank.

Perhaps not, but you clearly have a lot of time. Something that many of the rest of us don't have.

now that the ToTT of this month is E50 M i decided to speak a bit about it since i my self have completed the tree long ago

E 50 M used to be the most precise(accuracy in this game is a joke anyway)  in this game  tank with the highest Pen  at  the exchange of having the lowest DPM and also a low view range for a German tank.

having said that the tank is no longer the boss in Pen and accuracy. it has an armor that is no where near as good as american ,UK  or Soviet counterpart , while the numbers of raw armor is good on paper you must be a master of side scrapping and turret scrapping in order to make us of that armor ( tier 10 always spam gold and HEAT all the time ,rendering your armor scrapping skill almost useless) the tank has very VERY big weak spots that are easily hit by any tank with decent accuracy ,but wait tier 8 is also plagued with weakness, unlike panther at tier 7 with its almost god like pen and precision and an armor that works well, you get a tank at tier 8 that has the same armor and a lot of similar problems that i already explained for E50 M .

community asked for a buff or a revamp for all German tanks (except Maus tech tress) and yet here we are at the end of the year and only Leopard got buffed (which also power crept the E50 M as well) and it doesnt seem that WG has any plan to buff these tanks anytime soon.

my final word is if you wish to grind for this tech tree make sure you have a nerve of steel for the ridiculous RNG that renders your 0.27 accuracy inconsistent and also your armor getting pened all the time with golden HEAT

Worked out to an average of 25 battles a day...

 

That's 12 battles if done over two weeks instead of the one I took.

 

The only thing I did to ease the grind was to use FXP to unlock to good tracks and guns. 

 

I'm illustrating the point that most of the ToTT  if not all of it could be unlocked in a month without having to pay for any extra buffs.

try using paragraphs and spacing

is english your 3rd language?

 

 

Accuracy means nothing, both on paper and reality-wise. side-scraping in E 50 M? wtf?

that is effective at the Panther at best. if you side-scrape in a gold and HE spam tier, you shouldn't be playing E 50 M in the first place.

I can agree with that. It`s not excellent and you can easily find tanks that are better in each aspect - perhaps except the ramming. Also, it`s not the most stealthy tank around. 
However, personally I like this versatility as it allows you to use the tank in various situations, on pretty much any map, with reasonable chance of success. 

Also, for some weird reason I`m fan of Panther II with the 8,8 L/71 gun... anyone else?

Panther II is utter trash.

 

No acceleration, mediocore mobility, laughable armour and it's size looks like more of a heavy tank and not a medium, so you'll be spotted instantly...

 

Gun handling is a joke because accuracy in this game is a lie.

 

Still need to unlock the top gun but I'm not looking forward into it either...

 

The 240 alpha damage guns are just torture to use, I'm not a fan of this type of guns at all...

 

So far, played less than 40 battles and sitting below 50% win rate because it's a German vehicle...

Yes I've been doing it for the tier 10 and thus far I have the tier 9 fully spec'd up and 27k towards the tier 10 all done on Saturday.
