Let’s shine a spotlight on a mixed line of German tanks that takes you from delightful light tanks to a strong and sturdy super-heavy.

Strong and sturdy super-heavy in current gold-spam meta? :bajan:

I was planning on playing my German Big Cats yesterday. Panther went fine as always. Then i took out Tiger 131 and that went wrong because the thing simply is not manouverable enough when swarmed by lights and meds in Ensk city. My bad.

 

Finally i took out Tiger 2. Played one battle and the only thing i met was one big golden shower. Bounced a lot of it so in the end i was a very expensive kill. However,  even hull down i was nothing more then an XP pinata stinging back. After that, Tiger 1 didn't leave the garage at all.

 

I love the looks of the Tigers but for an average player like me those golden showers make it very hard to have a decent game, let alone fun. Guess they will be gathering dust again.

Yes, they are still playable, and can be quite fun, but gold spam still makes a fool of them.

 

Maybe wargaming should move the german superheavies to the russian tech tree to solve that whole "turret front can be perforated by gold" problem.

the only way to balance gold ammo would be to have damage caused with gold ammo make zero credits and zero XP, so it would be used as a last straw emergency thing. this way, you can improve your WR if you must, but your stats would not take gold ammo scores into account.

 

otherwise, there is no way these super-heavies will ever be enoyable.

 

also, it is the best time to try or get back to one of WoT's competitors, as WG is seemingly the only company that decided to go into full predatory clown mode. I guess it's their niche...

It says "2 additional x5 XP victory bonuses per day for each vehicle of the Jagdpanzer E 100 line" on both premium shop bundles.

German tanks are such a joy to see too bad they aren't just a joyful to play because of the gold spam.

Strong and sturdy, against AP, but then someone realises they can load HEAT and you're dead within 2 min, or if you're more lucky you get to go against a 279e or a T95/FV4201 who spam gold at you cause HEY i'm a "SKILLED" CW player meaning your 2.7k HP won't do crapto help you, so yeah strong and sturdy in 2017's meta, useless in 2021 cause WG are too THICK to realise that gold ammo spam can be stopped if they take 25% or 30% of the HEAT alpha away and 15%- 20% of the gold APCR alpha away.

10:44 Added after 2 minute
You can fix the gold spam in 1 hour and make it work cause why should a T10 tank be allowed to shoot gold at a T8 same with T9's, HIGH TIER TANKS should not be allowed to shoot gold at low tier tanks, GOLD AP, HESH, HEAT and APCR can be balanced according to how they work irl with HEAT having no spall and APCR having less spall then a regular AP round and decreasing their alpha accordingly.

Yeah but russian bias is a given doesn't matter if it comes to germans or any other nation as russia always the best comrade. 

German tanks suffer the most by gold spam due to the present armor mechanic, how (not) angled they are and their size.

Armor is just a parody in now days. While there will be gold spamming bots you can put in long "sleep" German HT tanks. Just use Russian HT with their mystical side armors and 80% randomized turret weak spots. :D

My first ever tech tree line grinded. In times when both T6 VKs were medium tanks, there was no Pz. VII line and 15cm gun had 235mm standard pen. I dont know how, but i have 550 battles on it, i assume mostly in CWs. Learned a lot about angling playing it. Since 2013 or 2014 i havent played more than 3 games on randoms with it. It is definitely a legendary tank, but its slow, has no armor, burns a lot, full of weakspots, big arta excercise target, weak guns except 15cm HEAT (and HE is about to get nerfer as well). Definitely not for todays meta of fullgold-wheelie-hulldown-ufo-scifi-auto(re)loaders with no lower plates. But i still have it in garage cause of nostalgia and looks.

The E100. One of the few heavy tanks that can hit back against hull down IS7's, Chieftains and Super Conqs with HE. Top of the tree just as the HE nerf is coming in.

Ha ha ha ha. Troll level 1000 off WG. Damn they're good.

E100 is amazing wtf you talking about.

 

 

E75 is probably also the best tier 9 heavy atm.

 

Amazing tech tree
