I have both and I must say I've had more success in The Hidden than the E25.  I have an equipment loadout of a camo net, binocs, and rammer and a crew having BiA, Sixth Sense, Recon, and Situational Awareness.  Seems to me that The Hidden is to Tier V what the E25 is to Tier VII.  With the lower skill level you typically see at lower tiers, I would say a good player would be able to influence a match more with The Hidden at Tier V than the E25 at Tier VII.

Both are great in their own right, i mentioned elsewhere but surprisingly Hidden has better concealment than the E-25 (E-25 wins on mobility though i think). I don't have an E-25 but can't fault either tank.

E 25 is mobility King, even after the hand brake nerf.  Hidden has poor reverse so you have to be looking to back up early if needed.  

 

OP if you get the camo skils on the crew they both are pretty hard to spot and kill for the reds.  

 

Also the Hidden is a better pure killer and the E-25 is the better pick for a Confederate medal to give you an idea of how it damages.


When a man with a .45 meets a man with a rifle, you said, the man with a pistol's a dead man. Let's see if that's true. Go ahead, load up and shoot.

I think I might put one of my more skilled crews in there that has camo and green thumb now that you mention it.

Have both and didn't like either of them. Just don't have the time to figure out how to use them i guess. Probs add it to the list.

E25 is the most fun you can have in a tank. Try rolling up to a Japanese heavy and hug it to death because of their lack of gun depression, or chase down lights that can’t escape you or just sit behind a bush and spot the whole enemy team and still have the mobility to escape if they spot you (which is unlikely unless you fire) The Hidden is a good tank but not as flexible and if you get spotted it’s usually fatal. I have both and E25 is by far the better tank imo just love playing it, only thing that lets it down is it’s lack of pen but perma tracking reds is a good option is allies are near

It should be mentioned though that the E25 is much stealthier when firing its gun even though the Hidden is stealthier otherwise.

I assumed the Hidden was rubbish... until I needed some undetected kills for LongBomb contract. Good alpha, good pen, preferential MM. Too bad I don't play Tier V much. Not as fun as the E25... but pretty good.

Hidden is in a Tier with poor average viewrange, few scouts and cheap equipment loadouts.

The E 25 plays like a Hidden with 2x replay acceleration.

The E25 is a lot of assisted damage point. If you spam prammo it costs expensive (costs between 500,000 and 1,000,000 per hour of play) but the DPM is allucinant. This is one of the premium tanks that is very capricious to the one who uses it, its performance does not depend on the team but your own style of play: some players will never be able to do anything with him. In fact, the majority of players since the skid controlled nerf.

 

Even in a personalized offer with a 50% discount, it's not worth buying. The hidden is more interesting.

The only thing I dont like about the E-25 is that the ammo capacity can be limiting with that rate of fire.

Otherwise, they’re both good tanks at their tier, and both are fun to play if you like the stealth gameplay

Personally speaking I find that I almost never lose credits in my E25, even though I have food and a healthy supply of premium ammo, and generally speaking I make around 40-80k credits profit each game (with a premium account).

 

Also, the handbrake "nerf" really doesn't hinder the tank much since it's very rarely in a situation in which it does need to do a quick 180 degree turn, and if you do need to turn quickly you can still abuse the physics to effectively handbrake turn on almost any slope.

The E-25 is a light tank wearing TD clothes. The Hidden is not.

When I see an E25 on the red team, I take notice.   When I see a hidden I could not care less.

You'd better. I got my only Pool's medal on the Hidden on Dragon Ridge. Nobody could see me. It's a ghost.

A competent player meets up with a bad team, while on a bad team.  Good on you,  but still, no.  They are not a problem in my book.  In fact, I almost never see them in-game.

My Hidden is more than a match for your T-34-88 :-)

I don't have the E25 but the Hidden is just so situational. Yes, if the Reds keep their distance and the gun doesn't troll you it can be very deadly. For a tank that is supposed to keep hidden and fire at a distance the accuracy isn't all that great.

This. 

 

I enjoy the Hidden much more than the E25, although I think it is because the E25 draws a lot more fire. It seems like every time I play the E25 all the arty and every fast and mobile tank immediately comes after me the moment I am spotted.
