sorry but i like the better AP pen and damage ok?

The AP pen is sufficient on the 90mm and the ACPR is way better. And DPM is more so you end up doing more damage because of your ability to abuse that DPM all you want thanks to the immortal god mode turret armor.

It's just better.

So, seems like, along with the recent French HT, WG has switched to making premiums sort of superior to their regular counterparts?

would the T26E5 change the meta for tier 8 Strongholds?

 

As a moneymaking tank it should more or less replace the IS-5 (better mobility, much better gun, easier to use hulldownpositions)

IS-3 is still king if you want to tryhard but even then I can see having one or two T26s on the team as being usefull for being able to go hulldown on more positions and its ability to actually keep up with the IS-3.

would it replace whatever role the T32 had in Stronghold battles? The T26E5 has armor that almost matches the T32, but with better mobility and a better 90mm gun

Apparently even a baddie like me can play with this tonk well! Just got it today on EU and played after a couple of months break and my first game was Ace, lol.
I wonder, is WG just milking the dying cow as hard as they can?

Of course. Why wouldn't you be able to?

I figured with the T25E5 Patriot you wouldn't be able to with it's paint scheme so wasn't sure if they locked it out with the non Patriot.

Dude, use AFE, it doesn't really cost you anything and provides much better protection, also swap vents for optics and enlarge that minimap.

Seriously looking forward to playing this tenk when I get home from work :D

done with 105mm :^)

It works yeah, but 90mm is better in pretty much every situation if you ask me :l
Can't wait to buy that broken T26E5...

This thing has ammo rack in the front hull? I just got ammo racked and dead driver from one IS-3 shot.

1557 base exp and first class :D

Not sure I have seen that high before, means even potatos are doing well in this broken tank rofl? Highest I have seen for ace tanker was like 1400 or something.

Skoda T-50 was higher on the first few weeks of release. I got a game of 1687 base xp and still 1st class.

Mastery reqs also go out of whack on monday morning since that's when it resets.

I bet mastery will be below 1500 tomorrow.

On mobile so can't be assed to link. I got a screenshot in my casual purple thread of an ace tanker game. I think it was well over 1600 base xp.

Well, I see pretty much only tomatoes driving one. So far haven´ seen anyone above green. Maybe NA is different, but on EU(1) i also see it the AMX Liberté very rarely (and it is on sale longer) - once in a few battles at most. cheap bastards. 

P.S. 

Exp requirements are the same on both EU servers, or not? I rly know nothing about exp for mastery and multiply servers (EU, RU) in a region...

T32 turret is much better, did some testing with the T26E5 in a training room against IS3 APCR and that goes through in quite a few places, especially the turret cheeks.  Plus that can ammo rack you.

It's a very fun tank, very versatile but the T32s turret is basically unrivaled.

It is definitely not a T32 turret but it's still very strong and very hit-n-miss to pen, the weak areas are not that big.
