After seeing all these topics about how bad the E50M is I have 1 simple answer....Allow players to fit a higher rate of fire version of the 8.8 L/100 that you can get on the E50 EDIT: I forgot to add that the E50M should be able to fit both of these guns also I don't have a problem with the gun just many people complain about it I'm coming up with a possible and easy to implement solution for some people this would not be a bad thing having this gun choice would be perfect for wolf packing platoons and since the E50M will still have the 105mm this makes using the 8.8 completely optional

People complain how the rate of fire is so bad on the E50M its rounds per minute is 7 I think But on the E50 which can fit the 8.8 has a base fire rate of 9 I think the E50M needs this gun with a base fire rate of 10 or 12

Is that typo in my GT??? yes.......

The 105 is far better though, have no idea why anyone would want less pen & less alpha for a slight ROF increase.

Even with a ROF buff the gun wouldn't be competitive at tier 10 :teethhappy:, it's not even competitive at tier 9.

I use the 8.8 on my E50 plus the deadeye perk its perfect for crippling enemies and keeping them crippled

I don't get all these people saying the E50M is bad, it's god damn terrifying. Very difficult to pen over the front, especially if the driver knows what they're doing. Even the E-50 isn't easy to deal with.

 

That said, apparently the next PC patch will be bringing down the 8.8 L/100 to the Panther II at Tier X, I hear.

If you see me performing really badly on the EU server, it's because I've got three kittens fighting for my attention. I'm really sorry.

Your choice, and you are entitled to it, 105 is the better option though :P

Current ROF is fine.  No reason to compensate for a player's inability to effectively utilize the current set up.

That gun was a pain in the E-50, thankfully I finished that grind and finally got the 105. I see no use for that gun in a tier X tank. It's barelly useless against tier IX.

Sounds pretty awful to me :teethhappy:

Scorpion light tank can pull a little over 3mpg, I think, 8.8L/100km is literally one percent of that :P

If it fired APCR as its standard sure, but the E 50 on PC is getting a huge 88 DPM buff that puts it at the top of tier 9 mediums(I think lol)
