The E 25 is a superb tank destroyer with unusual gameplay, preferential matchmaking, and the usual Premium vehicle benefits. The result was this deadly German TD gaining sizable popularity among the player base. But this popularity means that the total number of E 25s being used is steadily increasing, which leads to an increase of imbalanced battles among its tier scope.
Therefore, rather than put the E 25 through drastic rebalancing, we made the difficult decision to gradually withdraw the vehicle from sales, and grant it the status of an exclusive Premium vehicle -- just like the Type 59, KV-5, and several others. Given that, we won't rule out the possibility of the E 25 returning to the Premium Shop in a special event or as a reward for in-game competitions.
The withdrawal of the E 25 will occur in two stages: First, it will be removed from the tech tree and in-game store on December 22. Later, on January 15, it will be removed from the Premium Shop. Naturally, everyone who bought or buys the vehicle before these dates can keep and continue to play it. And again, these decisions aren't easy, but consider this a chance to get a memorable tank destroyer before it bows out!
