I recently obtained the E5 and I'm loving it but my performance and my decision making overall could be greatly improved. Below I will have my 5 most recent battles listed and would appreciate any feedback I could get.

Crew Skills:

Commander / Radio Operator: Sixth Sense, BiA, Repairs

Gunner: Dead eye BiA, Snapshot

Driver: Repairs, BiA, Clutch Braking

Loader: Safe Stowage, BiA, Repairs

If I could I would redo my entire setup for crew skills because I assigned them as a tomato in the T34, but sadly I do not have any gold

Equipment:

Gun Rammer, V Stab, Optics

1. http://wotreplays.com/site/2035578#westfield-whenisayboomisayboom-t110e5 Got hit by a heavy push, decent dmg

2. http://wotreplays.com/site/2035585#mountain_pass-whenisayboomisayboom-t110e5 Bad habit of auto aim

3. http://wotreplays.com/site/2035595#windstorm-whenisayboomisayboom-t110e5 Poor game on windstorm

4. http://wotreplays.com/site/2035607#airfield-whenisayboomisayboom-t110e5 Once again, meh

5. http://wotreplays.com/site/2035613#mines-whenisayboomisayboom-t110e5 Good win

I'm about to go to bed so I can't watch any of your replays, but I played 3 games tonight before signing off that may inspire you.

Try to contrast it with what you do, and watch the minimap as I play.

If I remember I'll watch some of your replays tomorrow and give some thoughts.

In the words of Crab, "It looks something like this: WASSDSADASDAWDSADWSASDSSADADWDASAWDSASDAWWWASDAWSDDAADSAW"

One of the best posts in wotlabs history, hands down.

It a heavium: a heavy-medium hybrid. If you play it like either, exclusively, you will fail. However, if you learn when to play it like which at any point in each match, it will work wonders. It takes some skill, some experience, and some serious situational awareness, but once you get the rhythm down, it will click like no other. Thanks to Crab specifically for this bit of wisdom, since I too was actually struggling with this tank before he showed me the ropes.

Currently at work so I won't be able to take a look at the replays till tonight at home.

But quickly on the crew skills.  I think we all have had some pretty stupid skill decisions in the beginning of our WOT "carreer" (no English speaker as native language, so that's the best word I could come up with ... :P).  I have in any case.
In my opinion it's better to take the 10% crew XP hit and retrain your crew to the correct skills than it is to keep grinding them to the correct skills.
When you are on your 4th or 5th skill, it will take 1000's of battles (?) while if you retrain with credits, you can bring your crew back to the original XP inside a 100 battles.

Although the crew skills on your E5 aren't all that terrible, but just in a more general sense.  That's how I do it in any case.

At work, so I can't watch them yet. But posting here for posterity so that I can come back and edit it in :D

Basically though, some advice.  Keep the front toward the enemy, if you show your sides you get ammo racked, if you show your rear you get lit on fire (sometimes).  Get hull down as much as possible and wiggle back and forth to throw off shots onto the cupola.  Engage from medium to long distances and you should be dandy, however if you NEED to do some close range brawling the E5 can do it.  Try to use your maneuverability first though (such as against an E100, you track him and circle jerk him)

That crab guy sounds pretty smart. Perhaps the OP should look up posts by him, about the E5, using google. 

Dem snapshots/turret wiggle. Should use his E5 to carry my 4202 after i do this A45 mission >.> .

If you want to play the E5 you have to play aggressive. I know everyone gets flustered when and E5 pushes and keeps moving. With it great overall armor and amazing gun it can be a bitch to take down 1v1 and even harder with support. 

I tried playing it too much like a super heavy for my first 500 games. Then I found out its more of an assault heavy and its just one of the best all around tanks.
