Kinda circle of mediums. Usually I see on battlefields something like this:
- BatChat usually wins against M46 Patton;
- E-50 usually wins against BatChat;
- M46 Patton usually wins against E-50;
- T-54 is average against all Tier IX mediums.
You mean: E50 usually gets pounded to 300 health and then it "conquers" the hill only to get killed by arty 5s later while BatChat returns to actio 35s later with 50+% of his health left?
Because that happens when I'm fighting E50 with lorraine, and for some reason I doubt BC does way better than lorr (I have reduced the time accordingly and adjusted the health left).
Also remember that f.e. on Malinovka BC will spot E50 on his way up, so E50 gets shot in the face by arty before it even reaches destination.
E50 can't keep heavy scarred behind corner because at T9 nobody is scared of 390dmg alpha with 220 penetration while a perspective of getting penetrated 6 times for 300 in around 12,5s is really frightening. And 232 penetration is usually enough to go through angled E75 or IS4 reliably, while 220 penetration is like a gentle tickling to heavy's armor (really, I love when non-french meds shoot my E75's angled front from the distance, the feeling of being invincible and the sound of shots bouncing just announces the incoming steel wall).
EDIT: I also doubt Patton wins easily against E50 -- E50 shoots Patton anywhere while Patton has a good chance of getting a bounce. So it kind of evens out.
