Disclaimer: This is not a WG bash post, but yeah, this is pretty inexcusable/ridiculous.
I decided to compare these two tanks specifically because they play similarly (Tech tree heavy tanks, plays hulldown, 400 alpha damage, quick reload, similar speed, etc)
The Super Conq was released in October of 2017.
Nothing here is news and anyone who plays the game understands this matchup, but if you want stats:
Literally, the super conqueror is better at EVERYTHING except the E5 is slightly more mobile.
2 more degrees of depression, better turret armor, non huge easily penned cupola, better gun handling, a lot more DPM, 200 more hp even for some reason. Also the M103 is a joke compared to the Tier 9 conqueror as well.
The E5 has a better hull but it’s not like either tank is hard to pen in the hull, so that’s a moot point.
To be frank this is pretty embarassing in my opinion, to have two tanks that are so similar yet one is so much better than the other, for well over a year. You can draw similar conclusions from other tanks, and these discrepancies have existed in some cases for SEVERAL years (Leopard/Is4/etc lul)
Not sure why it’s so difficult to fix these issues, or at least make an effort to make some tanks more competitive. Improving a few variables takes what, 30 seconds? Not saying this would fix the problem entirely, but it would at least show an attempt.
