Hi friends,

 

I have unlocked both the E100 and Kranvagn. Which one should I buy?

 

Thanks!

I'd say Kranvagn, from the perspective of a tier IX med player. E100 isn't as scary.

E100 is more effective, IMO. But both are nice. The Kranvagn is very average performer. It’s not OP. But Kranvagn is more unique. Both the tanks require “controlled aggression” playstyle due to their low DPM.

E100 is not easy. The armour is full of weak points. But it is a true super heavy, here to soak the damage and die as slowly as possible while managing difgerent incoming fire directions.
It is always satisfying to see that your team has the gun advantage when you are eventually dead. Somehow, because it is slow, it relies on its team.

Kravagn, not sure, I would extrapolate from the amx50b except it is a reloader. More a second line support as a heavy, can support the meds too. So relies less on team performance.

To get the kranvagn, you need to play the leo(which I think is supposed to be OP judging by the ace bar), Emil 1 which is OP, Emil 2 which might be considered OP(idk)
To get the E100, you have to play the tiger 1 which is op, tiger 2 which is also op and e75 which is a good tank(again, I don't know)

But if you want a t10 fast, I think the exp required for the e100 line is less.
Personal prefference-kranvagn. This line has autoloaders and impenetrable turret armour(almost)

Leo is strong with top modules, but shares the same weaknesses as the T5/6 Steves.

Emil is OP in a 52%+ hands

Emil II is really very average

 

Tbh, i would go with Kranvagn; the e100 is slow and riddled with weak spots. It's hard to keep up with the team, so either the team stays with you, or you are alone and die from COD.

I took a look at your stats. You do well both in Ridge fighter and city brawlers so i'd say Kranvagn, before it's nerfed. There's plenty of time to get the E100...

Somehow, I feel that the EMIL line is Overhyped. LEO is a good fighter, but the tanks next to it are useless. Nothing is OP, the enemy sees you, just loads the APCR and done, EMILS are done and dusted in seconds. Hence, I dont have that TRUST in the Kranvagn. Kranvagn comes with the same GUN that of EMIL 2.

 

E100 is slow, huge paper turret, but very big gun. So, what to do?

 

EDIT: Played few battles with EMIL 2 to regain my trust, no .. F U CKING EMILS DIE LIKE MOSQUITOES, TIER 8 tank had no issues penetrating me frontally, at the turret and another thing, EMIL 2 Cant pen anything, YES, I couldnt pen tier 8 frontally even with APCR. SO FU CK THE EMIL LINE> I will go with E100.

Emil1 is very good. Emily feels slow and lethargic in comparison.

 

 

The e100 is a brute of a tank. I used it as a serious rammer and just try to really put the ram damage on my opponents.

 

It has the lovely 640 dmg alpha and the HE on the light/tds is lovely..

 

I dont have the Kranvagn yet but if its at all like the Emil2 then I'd prefer the e100.

I can understand why ... but, like an awful lot of folks before you, be prepared to be disappointed. IMO the big Derp Gun is just not much fun, even boring. I take an age between shots and pretty much everything can kill you once they know where you are.

Are you talking about E100?  I wouldn’t say it’s a derp gun as not really big enough alpha for a derp IMHO...

I find the E100 very very effective and I suck in tier x, just don’t camp in it, if you’re camping and getting CoD’ed you’re playing it wrong!

Not really getting you here. The E100 gun is 640 / 960 alpha. Only two guns in the game deal more damage than this; the Jageru and the death star. So are you saying that the Jageru and the death star are the only two derp tanks in the game?

 

The E100 also has the option of using the smaller gun used on the Maus, but very few people are running that, so I do not think this is what you mean?

Fair point, I hadn’t really thought it it like that, just that 640 at tier x doesn’t feel like derp but yeah you’re right, I’m wrong it really is a derp :). I do use the smaller gun as play mine very aggressively and want the faster reload and better dispersion, the dpm is close enough for it to not matter in my book, so that probably also adds to me not thinking it’s derp...

Thinking about it, your point of 640 alpha at tier X not being a whole lot makes sense. In this way a KV-2 is a much more derpy tank than the E100. Doing a one shot of someone happens often in a KV-2, not so much in E100. The alpha is the same, the tank is four tiers lower.

640 alpha makes think twice, but once you have fired...
What makes this big gun funny is that you can HE anything for splash damage. When a tank has 200-300 hp left, just sneeze a HE in its general direction with HE. Same works with a tank sidescraping.

I have had this happen to me when I have been bouncing AP and prammo....the HE splash is sodding annoying!
