didn't the e50m got a better gun with more pen and depression, but lost a lot of armor?
The E50M had some minor armor changes after being moved to HD this last patch, but otherwise has been pretty much unchanged for ages. I have now played several games in it, and I really like it.

FINALLY there is an on-track for the E50M, so I now own an E50M :)
Me too! Been waiting for a very long time. I'm loving the E50M right now. Wish it was a better tank for side scrapping though. Have to be very shallow for it to work.

I have gone back to try and improve my Tiger stats (was my first heavy ever, so they are rubbish). I forgot how much I love playing this tank, especially with the buffed mantlet armor, it really does help. Also getting pretty decent with my VK100.01P.
I've done the same with the Pz. 38 nA., that was the first line I started on and saw tier 10s in that. Never understood how to play an LT when that low of tier. So the tank had a 38-42% win rate. Almost made me quit the game because I could never pen an E100 from the side. Remember, I had no idea how things worked in the game.

Um, your Pz38 didn't see an E100 unless you platooned wrongly.
Maybe it wasn't an E100 but they were many tiers above me and I couldn't pen the side of whatever heavy tank it was and I wasn't platooning in it. This was when the Chaffee was the top LT tank before, the Bulldog, T49, etc came out.

Yeah, its no E75 when it comes to side scraping. But I have been doing really well with it. 90% win rate (although only like 15 games), and average of 2200ish dmg. Oh, and several ram kills :D Even ram killed a T110E5.

At least today's T25 Pilot mission was easy today. Be top in damage. Did it in my 1st game.. .with E50M. :)

My e50m has a spall liner and is crew trained in collision to ram even more.
You know, it didn't even cross my mind about Spall Liner for ramming. I know it's a ramming tank but I just went the typical load out I do with my MTs.

68 games so far in it, 69% win rate. I took good advantage of the US server 3x Crew XP weekend, with the 2x Crew XP for On Track, plus 200% personal reserves. Started with 75% crew and now on 2nd skill, around 70% I think...

Well, just completed the mission for T25 Pilot. Got it for free. :) Today was 30 kills. Fairly easy, auto-loaders was the choice to farm kills, Bat-Chat 25t and TVP 50/51. Of course if I had played like crap and still waiting on these two, I loaded up the USA T67 tank destroyer to farm some added kills. I do recommend Bat-Chat over TVP, 390 alpha for 5 shots is 2k. Much easier to clip a 1k hit point guy than the TVP.

I have been so busy I did not even bother with this mission. Plus there is no shortage of T8 American medium Premiums. Really need some premiums for other countries.

What would be a good money/crew trainer premium in the American line?
I have the T57, Bulldog, T30, T28.

The only premium I have atm is the Löwe.

Well, I always think the tier 8 premiums are best for credits. Right now, there's a special in the premium shop on an M46 Patton KR for $30 for a package people say is a good deal.

I don't know how good the tank is. There's also the T34 and Super Pershing T26E4. I have the T34 and it's not bad.

You have heavy, light, and TD, so a premium medium is not going to help train your crews. T34 for heavy, Scorpion for TD. Tier 6 and lower trains your crews too slowly and doesn't make a lot of silvers, unless you want to enjoy some lower tier battles.

Not sure if anybody else plays in sandbox, but the new game mode is awesome! You are on a huge 3km by 3km map on either offense or defense. Its got a few flaws (all easy to fix), but it is so much fun.

Yeah, been playing myself at least once a day. Only gripe, I get some bad packet losses.
Yeah, I have had a few DC's also. But the server is in Poland as I recall, I am in California. But still quite playable even with a 150ms ping. I still don't understand the promotion system though. Times where I am a two bar, but 3rd for dmg and exp. Other times I am just below general, but not top dmg or exp.
