Well, I'm sorry to pull so much shame above myself. I was just wondering if the little extra pen and the firing rate of the 8,8 does come even near to the way higher alpha of the 10,5.
I want this tank but that ugly Panther is in my way. This fuggen tank is worse than the getting through the Jagdpanzer grind
Dunno should this be here or in the "my team went full retard" thread.

We had a AFK E50 (he actually got back in the last minute of the game, when it was me him and arty left) and a bunch of T9 and T10 heavies who died to the last man on the plateau.
I think I had 4 or 5 kills at the end.
Only thing left in the end on enemy team were 2 arties, a M103 with 700hp (put one round in him so he was left with 200 something in the end) and a E75 at freaking full HP. Our arty died and it was me and other E50 hugging the cliffs trying to put round into one enemy while avoiding the gun of the other one... didn't last much longer.
Okay, I understand the frustration. I had a 56% win rate with it at one time. Not any more! I can't tell what modules and gun you are using from that screenshot but I use the 75mm L/100, with full camouflage crew. I haven't played it since the patch so I'm not sure how I want to respec the crew yet. I'm not sure how this game evolved but I would have picked one of three places for the Panther in that game depending on how anxious I felt about the match up: 1) covering the West field alone starting from C2-E2 (ballsy), 2) backing up my heavies in town if they need assistance starting from C6-D6 (neutral), or 3) covering East flank starting from B8-B9 making full use of my camo skill (cowardly). Of course, this would all be a judgement call based on which enemy tanks are spotted first and where meaning I would probably begin with the neutral choice, and I wouldn't sit in one spot the entire game but attempt to move around supporting as needed. The Panther is a support tank like the Tiger, not a scout, and certainly not a brawler.

It's like the Kingtiger or Jagdtiger, it's just uncomplicated straight-forward and relaxing to play
3 kamikazes in 2 battles, feels good. One was IS7 from 406hp.
Of course, you only get one per battle counted.
I really want to try a spall liner + controlled impact combo now. Just waiting for the equipment sale to rig all my shit.

Based on previous scores that ranged nearly as high as above one it appears to be possible to earn more than 100k on a very good win in E50. Anyone of you guys maybe done it?
2nd. Yes, really expecting those results Xiang, it does sound like a smashing combo.
3rd. God this tank is... G(O)OD. Play stile while grinding is completely incomparable to fully upgraded E50. If anyone of you played Dawn of War (1) and remembers Eldar Banshee unit reporting voices. "We are the harbingers of death", and "I sense a coming of great pain to our enemies". Well that is the feeling E50 gives.

Which modules do you guys run? Vent, Rammer and.. V-Stab or Spall?
vstab. If you want to try spall for a few rounds with the driver skill for lolz go for it. Its still situational though whereas vstab isnt.
