It would have to be a reasonably fast med, object 140 maybe? You could just run away from a heavy?

Having the tank as a B-C would be sooo funny.

 

B-C unloads.

All surviving ELCs zerg B-C.

Pretty sure every tier 10 can more or less (RNG) 1 shot a tier 5

I love the imagination behind the event.... but, no!  I'm not entering an event where I can lose damage points but not be able to kill tanks.  I'm trying to get my Damage Caused/ Received ratio out of deficit at the moment.

It's a training room, it won't count.

Surely it would have to be a Tier X med.

Possibly Leo, 140, or 62a

 

Perma track the beast? Could 15 5's take down a 10 with only 20 shells?

Very few Tier X's would be in any way vulnerable to 15 Tier V's. I also suspect the X will be a fast med, that will have full repairs, toolbox, BIA etc. so that trying to take it out might not be the way to go. I think running away is the best bet to survive and claim prizes. That might be really hard if the map is Province or Widepark.

Possibly a bit slow. It would be giving away about 20 kph versus a Chaffee or PzIIIC.

 

I think Leo1 will be the Tier X as I don't think WG is going to make it easy for us.

I think his reasoning for saying E50M is that all tier 5's would really struggle to do any damage to it, whereas the rest of the meds are still vulnerable at most angles.

Don't forget the gun on the 50M is arguably one of the better 105's in the game and doesn't need to get close...

If it is a "ghost" tank then in theory you won't be able to kill it, so hide and seek time.

 

Depending on teamwork, there are plenty of fast tier 5 lights that can take down a tier 10 medium especially 15 on 1. Best side armour is only 80mm and 2,050 HP. You only need to hit 9 times with an ELC to kill that, 15 ELCs should be able to manage it.

should be a heap of tier 5s that should do well in this elc not withstanding. preference would be 15 luchsleopards with the 30mm autocannon! can you imagine the spam hitting the poor leo or batchat! you would have a hard time aiming with all the hits richochets and tracer fire going everywhere!, no to mention the autocannon can pen all the sides and rear of both and probably the fronts too!

Maybe this reveals that the developers can have an invisible mode? Or there is a tank that has no texture so you can never see it?

 

Hmmmmmmmmmm
