So I just got both the skins for the E 100 and the Jagdpanzer which or are two tanks I've been thinking on grinding towards. So, of course, I can't spend my free exp and newly acquired blueprints on both the lines so I have to choose.
So, which tank is the best for the current meta? I've heard that the E 100 is quite outdated from some people but I still like the idea of a heavy tank with a big gun, but the Jagdpanzer seems to have an even bigger gun which makes it more appealing, minus the turret, but I'm yet again not sure on which is the best for the current meta.

Neither. But if you want a better meme tank then its Jpze100. E100 is horrible, and so is JPZE100 but at least it hits hard (when it hits).

So both are bad for the current meta?

Oh.
Is it just plain horrible or if you play them right they can be good or anything like that? any good pros, besides cons?

They are out of meta. Both are slow, fat, and easy targets. If you like a tank which constantly gets penetrated like knife through hot butter by gold spam then you will enjoy them. Other than that, if you like high damage guns like I do, you will enjoy Jpze100 like I do, despite it being horrible. E100 doesn't have any redeeming quality unlike JPZE100 (huge gun).

Ah, alright. Might wait a bit then before grinding towards any more german tanks.

Only higher tier Germans I have are the E75, E50 and Leopard PTA or whatever. Nothing else seems remotely relevant and arguably there are better tanks for the roles those vehicles play.

I've unlocked both - bought & immediately sold the E100.

Waiting for discounts before purchasing The Jgd E100.

None of them is meta. But that doesn't mean are bad or not funny to play.

IMO E100 require more skill to be effectively used. You need to know when load each shell to obtain the best effect. Armour require a lot of focus to work.

JPzE100 is more forgiving IMO. 299 pen AP and 420 pen HEAT are easier to use and 1400 alpha HE can damage even the thicker armours in game. You don't have a turret but if you support HTs from just behind them you will get flanked only after those HTs die.

JagdPanzer E 100 is my favourite Tier X. Prepare yourself with some 20+ replays to learn some play styles and go bananas. 

 

I had a streak of 7 battles with average damage of 5000. 3 of the seven were 6k+ damage battles. 

 

Just learn how to use it on different maps and when to use the HE (hull down soviets hahah)

E 100 or Jagdpanzer E 100 in current meta?

 

I will get both, as the one has a cool motorcycle on it, and play in the c 1866 meta, no problems! :girl:

Okay, I've been thinking on at least getting one powerful tank destroyed so I might go for the Jagdpanzer a little later but a bit random question but what tank do you think is the best, Jagdpanzer or FV4005? both seem to be able to give a huge amount of dmg but I've heard bad things about both tanks.

Best thing about Jgpz e100 - the HE shells. Absolutely nuts!! Never heard a bounce or non-pen, all the while dealing average 500-600dmg even through the most heavily armored turrets. With good dmg-RNG you can single handedly win the heavy lane. 

 

Oh and the rest is nice too. Yeah the armour is bad vs gold, so don't rely on it. If you position yourself well you won't have any problems. 1k+ dmg on every shot is pretty sick and tbh the accuracy isnt even bad. 0.32, considering youre medium range most of the time, is actually very good considering what damage you can do. Shell velocity is also good.

 

Don't know about the E100 Heavy, but the Jagdpanzer gets a clear recommendation from me.

IMO JPzE100. It has armour enought to get protection against HE and, with some luck/skill against premium ammo of tier 9-10 HTs. Plus it's more reliable at dealing damage.

Out of those two, the E100 is the better tank.

Always nice when you're actually able to turn around to shoot something, or reload in under 20 seconds instead of above.

A nice gimmick is also staying in place but angling your turret, which the JPzE100 can't do.

 

TL;DR

All in all, meta give or take, the E100 is clearly better, imo.

I would rather fight tier X with my E75 than with my E100.

lol no.

Just no for both of them.
They are viable as top tiers (like any other tx), but since it's only monotier they are creeped to the ground, and below.

You will get more frustration than fun from those two tanks, but don't get me wrong, there will be some rare matches that it will shine... very rare..

E100 - extremely outdated, gold magnet, you will feel like cardboard ( Super-heavy....Nice joke?) But fear not! one day it will receive some buffs, they are coming... i can't remember for how long now, it feels like eons ago.

JPzE100 - bit more fun than E100 but it's hard to work with... not sure why, probably to sluggish, but at least it packs some punch...
