Hard to say without more demographic data, but the theory at least would be that the PC platform would be less amenable to the anime tanks than the blitz bunch.

Because the ARP ships are exactly the same as the regular shops, just reskinned and with the Anime voice overs.

The new weeb tanks look different, are modeled different and have different stats to existing tanks.

If they were just reskins of the P2 and KT the alternate skin method would be fine. But WG don't release prems that are equivalent to tree tanks any more...

Not that it was surprising given it was a recent prem, but yes, the tank curves suggest it's broken - not quite defender levels, but still pretty broken. About a +4% delta for most of the curve (defender is closer to +6% for most of its).

Russian bias was an old meme. Premium bias seems the way of the future.

But Russia has the most amount of premiums. Therefore Premium bias is still Brussian Rias.

If the broken prems were only the russian ones then no dramas. Sadly WG seem happy to break just about every new prem as long as it sells. Meh, balance was overrated anyway.

E 50 M would never have existed in real life, even if the Germans had the time and resources to design and build it.

 

Simply because German designers don't want a rear transmission. Their frontal transmission which is commonly viewed as a weakness in this game? That's intentional.

 

Frontal transmissions in real life had the advantage that they could be repaired from inside the tank, and could serve as additional armour for the driving crew.

 

A rear transmission that got destroyed would mean that the tank would be unable to move at all, even if the crew got out to fix it, because you have to cut open the hull to change the transmission.

 

However, rear transmissions are cheaper and easier to make, and frontal transmissions make the tank much taller (like in the Sherman) as it has to run down the length of the tank floor to the front, which was why the Soviets preferred rear transmissions.

 

The E 50 M is not only a Wargaming fake, it's also not historically accurate in the sense that the Germans would never have made such a tank even if they could.
