Hello,
It becomes difficult to play with 4 + 4 EBR 105 in one game. The game is absolutely no longer fun. When we play in arty, from the start of the game we have that it's over.
Could you limit the number of EBR players to 2 + 2
Thank you in advance for your reply

Well, at least then all the most detested vehicle types are in 1 game, so the rest can have a normal game ;)

I feel so conflicted by this thread... on the one hand, EBRs are excessively mobile in a game that's always been designed for much slower gameplay, meaning that the maps can't handle the Ferrari playstyle while all other light tanks are made redundant; on the other hand, this is an arty player who has far more negative impact on the game (by punishing people for playing the game and forcing players to camp as a band-aid solution to Wargaming's incompetent push towards extremely mobile gameplay creating hyper-battles) complaining that EBRs make it hard to play arty.

 

You just made me happy about the existence of EBRs. :(

When there are 3 artys in the game on each side, most people's game is over anyway, so this seems like karma.

That’s what it’s like playing against 3 arty though.

I've heard it said that they ain't overpowered because their winrate is lower than some other tanks. The point is that these tanks are so popular that they are so often on both teams and that keeps their overall winrate normalised. Unless it's a draw, in this match-up it's a 50% winrate for EBR.

EBRs and arty make tier X a crap experience. Simple answer is to limit them per battle. But as WG don't seem to play their own game we get pointless 2.0

I had a hilarious game with 6 EBR105s per side on mines. Too bad they got the better spawn. Clipped 1 EBR from full hp but by the time I reloaded my 50B, half my team was dead and I got pushed by 2 E3s. Oh well. 

 

And no, EBRs didn't ruin that game, it was the unbalanced map and the fact that their armor had a brain.
