no, your getting confused with the WG gold eating sharks ;)

 

haha!

 

they are selling some good tanks for gold lately. Picked up the e25/crowmell B bundle on the weekend. Both tanks seem to be the real deal.

Crombie is an excellent tank - not had the privilege to try the E25 yet though.

Just re-bought the E25 after ditching it WAY back in the day before its gun got buffed. The gun handling is still fantastic, and now with APCR as standard and a blistering ROF, this thing is usable again. Just watch out for those big alpha shots from the reds.

 

I use Calibrated Shells to increase the pen to 204mm-ish. Even then reload times is still 3.5 sec/ shot. It`s rather quick on the move, but traverse is rather average as well.

Not a fan of TDs so it would have to be something incredibly special for me to purchase.

i am enjoyable the cromwell B. Can compete against many t7.

 

E25 seems to be easily outclassed against most t8 and a number of t7.

It seems like almost 80%-90% of my games in the t7 e25 are against t8 tanks. Are you seeing that also? Algorithm rigged against the e25?

I can't tell. I just bought mine, played a total of 4 games. Still in the grace period I think.

I wonder if there is an official “grace” period, or is it just a small positive aspect of the larger broken and rigged MM problem?

It definitely feels like there is a grace period with any new tank.

yep, a feel good with new premium tank so you think you are on an immediate winner.

 

Got the E25  and in fourth game got 6 kills, downhill from there as most matches are now against many tier 8s.

Yeah seems to be about a 5-game grace period normally. Not only premium tanks either.

Highlights how MM IS RIGGED, every new tank gets fair MM but after 5-10 battles you get thrown back into reality.

 

How can MM be balanced when we blatantly see this every single new tank you drive.

that e25 thing is absolutely diabolical! and so many players are getting them now. I was attacked by one in a recent game. I couldn't do anything to defeat it. they move so fast and hit hard.

T7 e25 cannot compete well against most t8 and many t7.

 

the e25 is a great sniper against all tiers.

 

blitzstar has a high 40% wr on the tank. Wish i had seen that rating before i bought it.
