As per the title. I can get one or both right now but am undecided on which should my best crews be assigned.

 

Are there any buffs planned for the E 50 M?

i prefer E-50M because it has some armour, good armour model that allwos angling and sidescrape, good mobility and gun. :)

For how I like to play, the Leopard looks far superior. Way I see it, the E-50M Is only worthwhile if you would prefer to play something that isn't complete paper and if you want the Radioman separate from your Commander.

*You need good driver with 5+ skills on E50M to put the ramming perk.

Leo 1 by far and it isn't even close.

 

That said, I do remember ramming a Leo for 1.7k, although when I just tried to capture it after finding the replay it won't load because it's the last patch :(

If anyone can somehow make some magic, send me a pm ty.

currently leo is far superior and deffo worth going for. only thing e50m has going for is bit more forgiving and the ramming memes

 

so far i heard the e50m has buffs planned 'soonTM' but dont take my word for it. but perhaps it might become more relevant then again

leo1 beats e50m in every single aspect except armour and except for the very rare occasion the armour on e50m is trash. close range everybody will shoot you right in the face and you can't even angle the turret as it will make the cheeks even weaker. you'll get rare bounces if somebody snaps a shot and it goes on your angled sides or decent ufp but i wouldn't rely on that armour for anything.

 

aside from this the leo one has better pen, alpha, dpm, gun soft stats, mobility, traverse, gun depression, view range, heck it even has a lower fire chance.

 

go for e50m only if you want ramming fun.

430U  :P

 

Seriously do not get E50 M. I don't even know why people used to like it. To me it was always a joke. Turret with no armor for a armored medium at tier 10. :trollface:

I hate them both...

If they on your team 90% of them are useless hanging on the redline..doing nothing till the game is over.

E 50M because it's not weak. :trollface:

Jokes aside, you have great accuracy, great penetration, high top speed on a chassis that's well armored and can ram stuff to death easily (Controlled Impact perk is your friend) and survive a few return shots (unlike the Leopard which is made of tinfoil).

In a world of magic autoloaders that do 5k per burst and overarmored crap that does 100 km/h, this might be one of the few truly balanced tanks left. :)

They cant be compared.

100% different playstile, in my mind they have nothing in common.

And i love my leopard 1 (i'm still learning to play it...)

According to a SirFoch video, E50M is classed as "armored medium tank" with 430U, without real meaningful armor. This gives it worse MM than Leo.

It's also just plain worse, regardless of MM.

He gun is not good, one of the worst mobility on tier 10 MT you named good one. Sidescrape works as long as you dont show turret face....good armor model, that is some armor on upper plate...that on flat ground eat heat.....Superior MT

i've found the mobility quite satisfactory. the gun is good i like it, havent had problem with it. 

and by armour model i mean the model.
