Presentation E75

E75 - new tier 9 German heavy tank revealed. E75 is scheduled for 6.6 update.

Stock setup with 8.8 cm L/71











Top turret & 10.5 cm L/68


The exact gun selection for E75 is to be finalized.

144 comments:

  1. Is the 10.5 cm L/52 the Tier 9 canon from the Panther II or the Tier 8 from the Tiger II?

    Will also the 10,5 L68 and 12,8 L55 be avaible for the E75?

    ReplyDelete
  2. look sweet :D must have ! ;p

  3. You wrote "Maximized setup with 10.5 cm L/52". Does this mean that the E-75 has the 10.5 cm L/52 as top gun? I hope not.

    Furthermore, the gun on the screenshot looks rather like a 10.5 L/70.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Any chance to get it's armor values?

    ReplyDelete
  5. Will the E-75 be researchable from Tiger II (KT)? If so, how much exp will it take to research? Perhaps the same amount as the VK4502? And will it be researchable through the KT tier 9 gun or the turret?

  6. bloody brilliant!

  7. "Furthermore, the gun on the screenshot looks rather like a 10.5 L/70"

    Yea it looks like this, L/70 and I hope it won't end up with L/52 as t9 would be worst T9 available even worse than Tiger at tier 7 if max gun would be 10.5 L/52....

    Also I hope that 128 will be available..

    A: It's L/68. Corrected.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Maximized setup with 10.5 cm L/52

    It's L/68. Corrected.

    VK45 gets 12.8 L/55, so what is maximized about the 10.5 L/68 and how can possibly the E-75 perform well if it doesnt have a better gun than king tiger?

    ReplyDelete
  10. So there is no 12,8cm KwK44 avaible as on the 4502(P) Ausf. B?

    ReplyDelete
  11. I hope it won't be another undergunned cannon fodder, THE ONLY tier 9 undergunned heavy :/ that would make it near useless...

    ReplyDelete
  12. There pictures show that it has E75 has the 12,8cm. However the pictures are a bit older.

  13. 105cm as top gun??
    I hope not.

    ReplyDelete
  14. wait what? vk4502 gets a 12.8? and the E75 gets the Lowe cannon????? Dude what's up with that!

    ReplyDelete
  15. There s definetly 128 mm gun on that tank, must be or its UP for tier 9...Overlord, could you pls post full specs on the german heavies official forum, pls pls pls :-)

    ReplyDelete
  16. unless it get's a mad ROF increase on the 105, like 10 rpm, and is REALLY fast and mobile, it will suck balls.
    128mm with KT mobility and slightly better armor is what it should be.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Q: wait what? vk4502 gets a 12.8? and the E75 gets the Lowe cannon????? Dude what's up with that!

    A: The exact gun selection is still under consideration.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Guessing its another mistake. The "stock setup" screenshots show the model of the 10.5 L/68, and the "maxed setup" has the same model for the gun as the 12.8 L/55.

  21. Dear OVerlord
    If you have the VK2502 research on our KT will the E-75 be researched when the patch happens,Or will I have to regrind?

    ReplyDelete
  22. A: The exact gun selection is still under consideration.

    :O What? Without better cannon this tank will be horribly underperforming with same gun as tier 8 King Tiger.... I don't see tier 9 heavy tank I see tier 8 with no point to grind xp for it since it will be the same as tiger only with a bit more hp ;/ and that's sad...

    ReplyDelete
  23. can you please release some more information here, i know you cant say anything thats set in stone, but is that a kwk or a PaK and wich canon will be the top one ?

    ReplyDelete
  24. one thing I can tell even without playing a single battle with that tank is that if it gets only the 10.5 then it will suck terribly at tier 9. Unless it is the mother of all 10.5s lol.

    ReplyDelete
  25. So Overlord it wil not get 128mm gun, or wil it ??

    ReplyDelete
  26. My hopes for better german heavys end up here if that won't change... E-100 will have worst turret ever that will be probably paper thin and now E-75 end up with same gun as KT.. I see there is no hope for german line ;/

    ReplyDelete
  27. Q: can you please release some more information here, i know you cant say anything thats set in stone, but is that a kwk or a PaK and wich canon will be the top one ?

    A: It's too early to announce anything at this stage.

    ReplyDelete
  28. i have a king tiger atm, but i would want to go towards the E series, will i get some kind of compensation, for example a carry over of the exp i have earned on my KT to my E75 ?

    or is it a dead end ?

    ReplyDelete
  29. Soo E-75 will be totally outperformed by E-50 in every aspect? Since you already said E-50 will get some "modern" gun, similiar to PII 10.5 or better, there will be no point to use that tank ever just to get 100-200 more hp actually. Just my 2 cents. I hope you guys see reason and give it better gun.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Ok, wait a few days, Overlord cant say anything useful right now..but if e /5 dont get 128mm gun all hel wil brake loose all over wot...and that crazy isu 152 at tier 8 gets to carry BL 10, a 152 mm gun, soviet bias-u bet!!!!!!!!!!

    Why post pictures than, Overlord...anybody home :-(

    A: E-75 will get far better armor.

  33. This is kinda when you announced lowe, i was so accited when i was reading about it on wiki...140mm front...150mm gun..
    And than you came up with the lamest of lame combos, ...lowe is ok tank, but isnt what it could be.
    Pls dont f... up the magnificent E series.

    ReplyDelete
  34. TIGER III IN ALL HIS GLORY! SPLENDID! I like this tank. I like all german tanks. They posses somewhat uniqe personality in every vehicle...

    ReplyDelete
  35. I have vk4502 and a maus in-game (and a t-30 for that matter) and I wouldn't actually mind a t-9 heavy with the 10.5 L68 (note that this is the KT gun, NOT the Lowe gun, which is better) as long as the rate of fire is fairly high. Like 9-10 RPM. It would have a hard time against the Maus due to lack of penetration, but it would be a very nasty tank against the other tier 9 and 10 heavies, and absolutely decimate the lower level tanks. The IS-4 is easily penetrated with the 10.5 L68 in the lower front plate and along the sides above the tracks. The T34... Well, it's just easily penetrated.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I personally would like to see to see a 10.5 L/100 on the E75. Doing something like 270 pen 380 dmg with about 5.8 rpm.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Overlord,

    After looking at the difference between the tiers, which is currently:

    Speed: Russian>American>German
    Firepower: American>Russian>German
    Accuracy: German>Russian>Soviet

    I really think that what the Germans need is an increase in accuracy, and definitely in ROF. Think about it - the German crews would definitely be better trained, and thus could manage a slightly faster rate of fire.

    I would argue that the spread right now in accuracy is somewhat meaningless. Give the high tier German tanks .25-.28 accuracy to compensate for weaker guns.

    ReplyDelete
  38. A: E-75 will get far better armor.

    That will probably be easly front penetrated by all those T IX+ heavys with Tier X guns and with that gun E-75 will be like harmless kitten to those IS-4 and others who will just drive at you while you bounce most shots with that penetration or you just do crappy damage while he drive to you and 2-3 shot you from his huge gun ;/ Ehh we will see.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Speed: Russian>American>German
    Firepower: American>Russian>German
    Accuracy: German>Russian>Soviet


    Dude check the last line, it says soviet and russien, better stop smoking that weed :-)

  40. A: That will probably be easly front penetrated by all those T IX+ heavys with Tier X guns and with that gun E-75 will be like harmless kitten to those IS-4 and others who will just drive at you while you bounce most shots with that penetration or you just do crappy damage while he drive to you and 2-3 shot you from his huge gun ;/ Ehh we will see.

    E-75 has effective frontal armor of 360mm that is impenetrable to every anti tank gun in-game.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Ok, the exact gun for e75 is not yet choosen, i request it carry the j tigers long 128 mm gun.
    Since the E 100 is to carry 150mm and 128 guns, thats not a problem, right!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Dear overlord:
    I would like to know will all new T9 MT will just keep the old T9 top grade Gun?

    thanks

    ReplyDelete
  43. yea but what idiot will shot at your hull when they got nice easly penetrated turret?? that would probably kill gunner/commander destroy gun etc.

    American tanks got impenetrable turrets thats a lot better than hull since you can't fight 'turret down' and they still got tier X guns.. sorry I see another usless piece of shit withour better gun ;/

    ReplyDelete
  44. well then if front turret will get like 300 effective armor I could live with crappy gun from tier 9 tank pov, otherwise that tank will be just driving freekill, EoT.

    ReplyDelete
  45. So the sky high hope many players had in the E-Serie are blown away due to the lack of a competitive top gun. The 10,5/l68 is a complete joke as a top gun. Without a very powerful gun (meaning PENETRATION and alpha strike, not some meaningless DPM/DPS) E-75 will be a useless (albeit good looking) piece of junk.

    As for the sky high hope we had: Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.

    ReplyDelete
  46. It looks more like a fait accompli.
    105mm with 'better armor & top speed' KT

    ReplyDelete
  47. only problem for me. It looks really same with E-50 and KT... We really need someting diffirent :) these tanks are copycat and really similar. plz add something orjinal. like http://military.wikia.com/wiki/Panzerkampfwagen_E-90_Schwarzwolf. historical acc. not really important. because this game hehe.

    ReplyDelete
  48. In penetrable frontal armor yeah right,they said prior front armor will be around KT values 150 which is basically useless and same as all other t8`s.

    When i showed the pic of the E75 to my friend he said it looks just like a kt with added ears to the turret as juicy weak spots.

    Looks like same old story half decent frontal armor and crap turret/side armor that catches fire from every frontal shot and like the cherry on top of the turd now their thinking of giving it a tier 8 gun....really disappointed

    ReplyDelete
  49. I agree with Alex. The tank doesn't even look any different from a KT at all. I understand that's partially historical accuracy, but given the E serie was never produced I wish they could fudge it a bit.

    My guess is the frontal plate will be around 200 but not like that will save you from other T9s or even T10s...heck at close range you might as well not have slope at all since that lower plate is a shoot here sign.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Hold your horses guys. Overlord didn't say that this gun was the top gun. It just says top turret and 10.5cm L/68, not top gun. Here's hoping anyway...

    ReplyDelete
  51. I hope there is still some hope

    ReplyDelete
  52. Yeah, I'll save judgement until the tank is actually finalized, but count me in as one of those who thinks that either this tank should receive something better than the 105mm L/68 or that all the other tier 9's should be limited to tier 9 guns. If this heavy is the only tier 9 one without a tier 10 gun, I really don't see how it can compete. An further upgraded 105mm or the 128mm, same as the 4502 Ausf. B should do it.

    Still, as I said, I can read. The gun selection isn't final. Just giving some input on what I think it should include. Also, the tank looks very good. It's been said before and I'll say it again: dang, but the Germans can make a sexy tank.

    On a somewhat unrelated note, can this tank (and others) also have the 88mm L/100, please? Just for the laughs and maybe while grinding for the other upgrades. I think it would be like the 75mm L/100 on the Panther II, relatively low damage but good penetration and ridiculous accuracy.

  53. Sorry Overlord but
    I started to think our devs is full of racists

    ReplyDelete
  54. I start to think our dev won't make the same mistake with the hit box when making cat ears

    This time I guess we can shot the light in front of E-75 and it will burn to dead

    ahh yes I started to think they should convert Navy gun to put in E-100

    ReplyDelete
  55. Q: Sorry Overlord but I started to think our devs is full of racists

    A: Because we haven't add Mongoloid crews or what?

    ReplyDelete
  56. Overlord i hope the hooks and the light in front won't be a "hole" in the armour plate...

    Btw i see another time suspensions high enough to aim easily at the lower frontal armour. This has been erased carefull in IS serie...

    ReplyDelete
  57. racist ? :D
    just wait for the full specs and then begin the whine if it is really undergunned. :)

  63. "Q:Sorry Overlord but I started to think our devs is full of racists"

    What was actual point of writhing this?? .... Writhing things like that won't make you cooler or more intelligent...

    Back to the point I agree that 10.5 L/68 is very weak gun as TOP for tier 9 heavy tank compared to rest of t9 tanks. At least give some longer gun with better damage/penetration. Make some 'fantasy' 10.5 L/100 or something like that just make it better than tier 8 heavy KT cos it's pretty pointless to play tier 9 when we actually got tier 8 (KT) performing the same while it's one tier lower. Cheers.

    PS. Less bullshit more helpful points to actually fix problems, not make more.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I noticed in the last picture that the tank had a greenish tint to its armour. If I'm not just seeing things, is that green deliberate or a product of the modeling program?

    ReplyDelete
  65. 10,5cm L/68? ... I hope this is a: 10,5cm L/68 AUSF.B at least?

    ReplyDelete
  66. Seriously, how are you continuously able to put up with this kind of whining people and stupid questions? ;p

    Anyway, we saw promising E-50, we saw very good looking E-75, now will we get see more details about E-100 soon?

    ReplyDelete
  67. The picture just make everyone blind
    did you guys forgot how good looking the Tiger and how lame it was?

    ReplyDelete
  68. Why is everyone whining about the top gun? We don't even know what it is yet because it hasn't been decided. They were just being nice enough to show us the upcoming design.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Overlord, any idea if there will be a NorthAmerican release of the boxed version of WoT coming anytime soon? Any info of its contents?

    ReplyDelete
  70. So the E-75 is just a King Tiger skin with a different front armor exhaust and gun model? Are the skinners and modelers just lazy or something?

    ReplyDelete
  71. the last picture dont looks like a kt. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  72. They aren't lazy because the E-75 ( also know: Tiger III ) looks like a King Tiger. Check this out:

  73. E75 is essentially upgraded modified KT.

    ReplyDelete
  74. And today there will be an E-100 sneak peak after that comes Tiger(P) and VK4502? :)

    ReplyDelete
  75. 10,5cm on a tier9 heavy as a top gun? I did not deleted the game beacause i have some small hopes that the devs don't mess up the E-series, and create 3 tanks that's worth it to play the german side. Is semms neot to be the case....
    If i see how the german side is created i feel that's something wrong with the devs. mentality, it feels that the pick on the germans still. A game should be free from politics. Dedicateing the german technique to this level is simply a bit harsh at these times. The war is over, and get pls over the hatred.
    OR they just concentrateing on the russian market and the gamers in europe are not a concern...pissed palyers = no EUR.

  78. Thanks for sharing Overlord!

    Understanding you are tuning the thing up so you can't say anything precise, I would like to ask you this:

    -What will make this E-75 different from the actual VK45 German heavy tank?

    (in generic gameplay terms and apart the already evident different layout configuration of the two tanks)

    ReplyDelete
  79. when i looked side armors. New series has same weakness Side armor slope and angle arent good.
    so It cause same play style. WG must add something diffirent to second heavy line...

    ReplyDelete
  80. u are crying always, that german line is weak. Sure:D KT is overpowered like hell, best tier8. VK4502 is a very good tank. And what about the us line? T34 is maximum a tier8 tank, but better tier7. T32 (my actual tank) maybe the weakest tank after kv5 in tier8, couse the gun. OK IS-4 is a very good tank, but german fans don't need to cry so much.

    ReplyDelete
  81. From what I heard E75 will have frontal hull armor [top and lower plate same amounts] 180/60* angle and in comparison Ausf. B already got 170/60* top and 150/60* lower plate angle, so it get only a bit better armor while a lot worse gun. I see no reason here...

    ReplyDelete
  82. "u are crying always, that german line is weak."

    We don't need converted commies here, shoo mindless beast!"

    ReplyDelete
  83. If you search in different historic sources, they where different plans for equipping E50 and E75 with 8,8 L71 AND L100!!! Using a "Schmalturm" and other plans for using a Tiger II Turret with a modified jagdtiger gun.

    I hope the devs make a balanced and "fair" tank out of the E-75 ... i am playing since the closed beta last year and i have to say that it is often frustrating how "weak" the german guns are ...

    after closed and open beta and now the final ... i started to play the american heavy line and the russian medium line ... i hoped for the E-Series ... as an end of this time where most of the german tanks are too weak ... a lot of people stopped playing german tanks ... some stopped to buy gold!!! And i think if the E-Series will be as weak as the known german units in game ... i will follow this way ... stopping to pay for gold ...

    ReplyDelete
  84. I don't know witch tank should I get because I have no specifications of top tanks. Could you post info about E100, E50, IS-4 and so one as fast as you can? This is vital info for most of us...

    ReplyDelete
  85. IS-4 is over all of those so go russian if you want easy OP mode.

    ReplyDelete
  86. V.0.6.6 T9 and T10 Overall power :

  87. Is it just me or does this look just like a Tiger 2 with ricer mufflers

    ReplyDelete
  88. I hope the lead balance developer (that played only T9 mediums and came up to tiger I in terms of heavy tanks) will see that giving this gank a 10.5cm gun is retarded at best.
    But hey, not like he hasnt had any of those decisions yet. *lets buff 8.8cm ROF, so it can ding more with its awesome 132mm penetration, trollface*

    ReplyDelete
  89. From the link Overlord posted:
    http://ww2drawings.jexiste.fr/Files/1-Vehicles/Axis/1-Germany/03-sPanzers/E-75/E-75.htm

    The E-50 Standardpanzer was intended as a standard heavy tank, replacing the Tiger II. The weight of these vehicles would fall between 75 and 100 tonnes. The complex suspension by torsion bars was remplaced by a simplified suspension on bogies. The standard Tiger II turret was equiped with 12.8cm KwK 44 L55 gun . The Engine was an Maybach HL234 developping 900 hp up to 1200 hp with supercharging. Maximum speed was to be of 40 km/h.

    ReplyDelete
  90. It clearly says TOP TURRET & 10,5 cm L/68 -.-
    Just because it looks awesome it doesn't mean that it will be it's TOP GUN ffs.
    And under the last image, marked in red:
    "The exact gun selection for E75 is to be finalized."
    And even the crappy (I'm sorry for using that word, but it reflects the tank perfectly, if it was any good - it wouldn't be replaced and moved to tier 8 premium) T34 has tier X gun (not the one from T30, but it's still tier X with 248 average penetration and good rate of fire). So even if devs don't give 12,8 cm L/55 to E-75, they will probably give him some other tier X cannon.

    Tnx for the images Overlord.

  92. ANONYMOUS ABOVE.

    Overlord changed it from 10.5 L68 final gun to a to be finalized. Don't be a douche.

  93. Pls overlord , can you ask the derv to make the 12.8 avaiable for the E-75 ? And pls make the E-75 already unlocked in my elited KT

    ReplyDelete
  94. It'll be funny seeing people mistake this sucker for an E-50. Or rather, it would be funny if the game didn't give you tank type in a little ticker when you moused over it.

    ReplyDelete
  95. actually, if this 105mm has the same performance as the Lowe's 105 with much faster firing rate, then this is still a tank to be feared even if it doesn't have a lot of damage

    ReplyDelete
  96. Hey, Overlord,
    Q: Will the E-50 and E-75 keep the spec'd speeds they have (at least the ones I have seen) of 60 and 40, respectively) Also, what do you mean by the supercharged engine thing? Could you explain how that could work in game?

    ReplyDelete
  97. I'm glad to see that you work on the new US and German Tech Trees but don't you think:

    - That declaring the IS-4 as a Tier 10 would help the match making ALOT more? It's out of control and usualy the team with more IS-4's / T-54's wins the game, as those are clearly "Tier 10's"

    - That rehashing the US Medium Tree (Quota in high tier games for US Tanks is 3.71 / 30 people, measured over 500 games), less than 2 of them usualy beeing a Medium tank, is such a great idea? You should make the US Mediums more appealing. You always talk big about statistics and it should be balanced, then why don't we see the M3 Lee buffed for once? Why do we keep getting slight buffs on the T-54 or the IS-3s instead? Oh right, because you don't have to worry about the US drivers, as they're dying out anyway.

    In the words of the internet meme: "Son I'm disappoint!"

    If you really don't care about people playing the US tanks, why don't you remove them from the game in the first place? Then the whole "bias" calls from your community would be gone as well.

  98. Why not give E-75 a fantasy 10.5/L100 eith this stats:

    Damage : 390
    Penetration : 240 -250
    Rounds per min. : 6,5 - 7,5
    Accuracy : 0,27 - 0,29

    I think this gun would be perfect for E-75 since it is a slight increase to the 10.5 from the Panther II and i think it would not be OP and it would not be UP so just perfect i would like it and maybe even choose it instead of a slow shooting 12.8.

    PLS DEVS TELL US WHAT U THINK ABOUT THIS

  99. Got a question concerning US T34, if i will have a stock T34 in garage, without 120mm gun and when it will become a premium tank will I get in a full configuration? Coz a premium tank wont be upgradeable i gues, but some players would have a better tanks than other, so could you explain me Overlord all players will have the same premium T34?

  102. will there be compensation for the KT when moving to the E75

    ReplyDelete
  103. I think a lot of people commenting on the E-75 don't understand several of the games mechanics relating to armor. First, the slope on the E-75 is 60 degrees from the vertical, compared to the VK4502B's 50 degrees from the vertical.

    That's 300mm effective for the E-75 using KT numbers, and 264mm on the VK4502B.

    Shells ingame have normalization values from 8-10 degrees. So lets plug that in.

    233mm for the E-75, 221mm for the VK4502B. Again, using KT armor numbers for the E-75.

    You cannot give the E-75 the same gun as the VK4502B because even using lowball numbers the armor is heavier on the E-75, and the E-75 has much better mobility. A 128 likely won't work on the E-75 for balance reasons - a much better 105mm would.

  104. @Anon above
    E-75 supposedly has around 160 front armor on the top and bottom.
    So around 320 LOS thickness using that.

    ReplyDelete
  105. What will it cost(XP wise) to unlock the E-75 from elite KT? And what will it cost from E-75 to E-100? I take it the E-100 will cost 6.1 million silver credits? How much will the E-75 cost in silver credits??

    ReplyDelete
  106. Please give us pleebs a time line on specs and release date. just got KT. Started US medium line cause i got so discussed with the tiger (almost ditched the German line) Don't want to grind through KT to find out have to grind through E-75 with same/simialr specs as KT.

    Oh ya what I think the comment about raciest ment is what a few other people have stated. Not raciest to people but the fact that Russian tanks SEEM to be over built in this game. I definitely think the IS-4 should be tier 10

    ReplyDelete
  107. @Anon above
    They already are moving the IS-4 to tier 10, please do some research.

    ReplyDelete
  108. I play german tanks and I think that is4 is normal tier9 tank i prefer to fight against is4 than vk45. 1 shot from 128mm gun costs 1070 credits and from 105mm 1030 credits - then cost is the same but 490 demage vs 320 demage! Playing on tier 9 with 105mm will be to expensive!

  109. Speed: Russian>American>German
    Firepower: American>Russian>German

    Yes. Balance as someone pointed out. Germans bottom twice, American once, and Russian not a once at the bottom. It's time to bump that firepower to:
    American > German > Russian.

    But hey, can't have balance can we?

    ReplyDelete
  110. if you add hp then it will be
    german>american>russian

    ReplyDelete
  111. and if you add armor

    russian > american/german

    ReplyDelete
  112. and if you add fantasy made up stats on tanks russians win all the way, since they got stats a lot better than IRL and for example german tanks got stats are nerfed than those IRL... balance...

    ReplyDelete
  113. so what gun this tank will have, did stalin said something?

    ReplyDelete
  114. armor will be
    german>russian>american
    if you take overall armor

  115. yes if you take armor on paper if you take ingame effective armor germans are a lot worse than russians

  116. Dear Overlord,

    It has come to my attention that this tank.. E-75 is pure fantasy. For this reason.. I would like on behalf of the USSR to declare that this tank mount a 75L70 cannon and have it's speed nerf'd to Tiger II speeds.. I mean, our... "prearranged" speeds not the historical.. fuck that we'd get shown up for the propagandists we are if we did that, our beloved IS-7 would get it's ass handed to it...

    Also, I have heard rumours of T-54's bouncanium shields failing in the field... this is unacceptable. I thought we agreed to all russian bugs being fixed?

    Sincerely awaiting your asskissing,

    Vladimir Putin

  119. Dobre djin Vladimir,

    I know that you want to raise the iron curtain again, but I think this "Overlord" люди is doing a good job on spreading the propaganda we have been planning for quite some time.
    As our project "Order of War" failed quite hard and people figured us out very easily.
    Now that we have those new Moderators, they can silence the community, yes, even gag them in the ways we need them.

    For mother Russia Comerade!

  120. Will the E75 maintain the weakness at the lower front plate? and how strong is the overall frontal armor on the E75? If you tradeoff offensive punch. give it a shell to hide behind. Else you wasted development time and insulted the community = lost revenue

    Hello my commie friends,

    Did you heard we our new T95 will pwn your asses hard with our mighty 320mm frontal armor and 155 mm gun or something like that, need to ask engineers about it. Joseph how about we meet somewhere like Teheran so I could show you my new toys.

  123. nothing new about the value of this tank ?
    will all tiger 2 main tank players have to choose a new research branch to avoid this troll tank ?

    ReplyDelete
  124. First off, why do people insult the developers. They are programmers who simply create what is asked of them. Many of the tanks are theoretical :most of the Russian and American tanks were just prototypes, never saw action, American tanks were terrible until the Patton/Pershing, Russian tanks were not designed to fight tanks but to destroy cities with huge cannon.

    The administration's goal is to make WOT profitable. They either cater to the Russian market or to the world market. It is a decision that they will have to make.

    German tanks ruled the battle field. They do not rule WOTs. we also have to bear in mind that tank technology changed every 6 months so top tier tanks have to be equivalent. We should not have to fight 1950's technology with 1940's.

    ReplyDelete
  125. what i mean is that german tanks have (ex : tigre2) less armor, less power and less speed than russian or american tanks....
    and that only for market reasons... to please russians players..... ?

    i choosed german tanks for fun and design but it's an enormous strategical error !!!!!
    soon, only noob players on german tanks...

    ReplyDelete
  126. the löwe is the "s" version in game and 20 tonns over its real weight. the 10,5cm was the lowes canon that should mountet on. the E-100 was planed with 150 or 175mm canon. all tanks of the e-series should have the schottpanzerung, means 70% more protection than the thickness should have-100mm massivarmour means 170mm effectiv armour.

  127. they will get enough armor that russian tier 7+ guns will penetrate it, don't worry!

  128. Overlord have you an idea of the xp needed to pass from tiger 2 to E-75?

    ReplyDelete
  129. think they will make the new german tabks to better steeltrash, like they did with other german tanks. that the germans had a geat commanding lead in tankconstruction!
    every living tankveteran of ww2 will cofirm that for modells like panther, tiger, tigerb!!! löwe was planed as "tiger3". and e 75 leicht und schwer, e100 keicht und schwer where tiger three´s if the war had go on. and the panther II ingame is the panther j! as panther two the germans speak by e 50 . they where all planed to outgun agains allies... tiger b could handle with tanks that where build 20 years after war, that strong was the 8,8 cm KwK 43 L/71. that could destroy any allied tank at that time and after easilie with ONE shot. in endversion of tiger b had a max speed of 42kmh...in a range of1000 m it coeld penetrate 193 mm tanksteel... it´s nearly hillarious what in wot german tanks are! shame on the developers! the russians had very good tanks to, but...ah, they are russians and the winning write the history of the loser^^ even in games like wot...

  131. EXCELENT SAID :

    winners write the history of the looser . even in games like WOT . i think the devs just want to hummiliate the German Tanks because they had better than the russians .


    the russians only won coz of the SWARM and thousands of tanks they had over the germans , and because both
    USA and UK helped them make tanks.


    as a response to the game , Russians & USA got prototype tanks to match the real tanks .


    KT plays vs IS-3 that never saw action in ww2 and vs t-32 , t-29 which too didn't saw action .

    all players whine , but when you see how much people whine about the German tanks because the devs spitt on them ...it makes u quit this game

    ReplyDelete
  132. i just hope the E-75 won't get as hummiliated as the VK45 which is a horrible tank to play .

    ReplyDelete
  133. why do you compare futue E75 with vk45xx ?
    vk is an awful tank so E75 can't be far better......
    why don't u compare with is4 or t3x ?

    ReplyDelete
  134. Any updates on gun selection?

    The 105mm is ok for tier 8 on the KT. On the VK45002, the 105mm feels really weak. It's just too lacking in damage (alpha) for a tier 9 heavy. Low damage high RoF guns feel more suitable for mediums.

    Another factor, shells costs 1070 credits for the 105mm. Faster RoF to compensate for low damage makes it very expensive to run compared to low RoF and high alpha guns.

    Tier 9 heavy should at least have access to 12.8cm gun.

    ReplyDelete
  135. just for comparison :
    vk4502 vs is4

    more armor for is4
    more power for is4
    more speed for is4

    without even speaking of the position of the turret on the vk..............

    why do you only compare the future E75 with the vk4502.....are u wearing sunglasses in the dark ?

    the E75 MUST be in adequation with the full game not only with vk4502 !!!!!!!!!!!

  136. >>vk is an awful tank

  137. I like to try the E series some day. Played on beta the VK45, Maus. I'm driving actual the IS-7 , T34. I don't want to waste my time on E ... make it good, balanced. Make it worth a opponent to my definitely better Soviet tanks. Americans tank are great too. Thanks for your listening Overlord.

  138. I hope the E75 does not have the same frontal weakness as the KT. I love the KT, but its kinda silly when low tier tanks can reliably pen frontal armour.

    ReplyDelete
  139. Hi Overlord,

    if till yet not finalized which gun the E-75 got.

    Here an suggestion from me.

    KwK 10.5cm L/72
    or
    KwK 10.5cm L/74

    Both guns was planned for the Löwe

    Why i'am suggest only an longer 10.5cm KwK ?!

    Higher penetration and fire rate like 12.8cm but lower dmg

    128mm L/55 pen. 246/311/65 dmg 490/490/630
    fire rate: 4.38min

    suggestion for longer 10.5cm KwK's

    105mm L/72 pen. 243/303/60 dmg 320/320/420
    fire rate: 7.42min

    105mm L/74 pen. 252/312/60 dmg 320/320/420
    fire rate: 7.30min

  140. Regardless, if the E75 and E100 are even middle pack tier 9 and ten respectively; Im done buying gold and will look forward to Battlefield 3 in October. Im not suffering thru Tiger 1 again. Dont get me wrong, the tiger 2 is making me forget about the tiger but it was a joke, even for balancing reasons. I sold it the day I researched the KT and used my russian tanks to earn enough to buy the KT.

  141. I have the exp to unlock the vk 4502 right now so I hope the devs can let us know the exact spec of these new tanks before the 6.6 patch is out sooner the better :-)
