Great YouTube from 4TankersandDog




He explains firstly how the whole wheel shields thing works and  why it is actually mainly a thing with the ebr75, ebr90 & ebr 105 and not really the tier 6,7 or tech tree tier 8.


He also talks about how using HE in particular on them is a bad idea because of 0mm spaced armour being a thing.


Finally he talks about why they break the game without necessarily being especially OP due to improved  autoaim and stupidly good otm dispersion.


Whether or not you agree with his analysis, there is some good info here on both playing wheelies and killing them.

Before being concerned about wheelies, could we just remove arty first? :hiding:

Interesting Video... I think they just need to remove that stupid snap to auto-aim. 

Like he said, "for any other tank in the game it's classed as a cheat".


one rule for these and another for the rest. that's wrong!

Basically the best way to use HE to kill an EBR is, oddly enough, to miss. Shoot under the enemy LT and all wheels get damaged.

That snap auto-aim does not work in zoom mode. I played about 100 games in my EBR thinking the auto-aim did not work, even raised a ticket,  because I am constantly in zoom mode and it wont lock in zoom mode.


So to use it, you have to zoom right out, but then the target and all around is very small, and they duck behind obstacles ect and you miss the shot that you would have got if you stayed in zoom mode. Also it does not work well in close combat situations, you right click over and over and it wont lock on the opposing LT, but he is zoomed in on you and does lock on.


It can be a handy tool for sure, but it does have it's drawbacks.

Are you running vanilla? There were issues with the wheelie auto lock and some mods early on.

its not really analysis though.


Shooting them is just practise. After CW hitting 105s was relatively easy.
