Title says it all; what tank do you consider to have the worst stock grind?

By stock I mean the tank with a maximum of 2 modules that carry over mounted. Won't talk about crew or equipment, but mention them if you want.



For me it's either:

Tiger H or M6.  In the Tiger I did quite well, I had a good crew + equipment and didn't lose to many games,

but I didn't really do much damage. As for the M6 :arta: ... My GOD this is rubbish without the 9 cm gun

( I still don't have that) - and I simply cannot find teams that can actually win a game. Had a good crew from the T1 (which I absolutely love) and equiment but it's still bad with the 7,6 guns. That and the fact you are T6 don't really add up to a pleasant stock tank. Heck, even with all the top modules except the 9cm gun it's still horrid.


What about you?

for sure, the VK3001P
stock engine and gun are horror
the gun is from the PZ III/IV and the engine is like 60% or worse of what the best engine for the VK3001P is going to be. the armor to speed is real real bad..
the turret you can only have with the tracks unlocked which is total 12000 or more exp. after that (if you dont have them researched already)  you need to research another gun before you can get the 88 cal.. takes forever.

Worst grind ever for me is definitely E-50.
Couldn't even get it up to ramming speed, before researching a proper engine for ~60k exp...
Guns before the 88/L100 are a joke for T9 and not to mention the extreme MM trolling for the first 100 or so battles that resulted in an awesome ~24% win-ratio.

Now I have everything except for the top gun researched and I'm still afraid to take it out for a spin, the MM just hates it...with a passion.

Try Churchill GC, playing this tank (even elite) is much, much worse than grinding any stock tank in WoT...

You guys make me happy I bought the Jumbo instead of the VK 3001 P today. Ok that leaves me with the T-34/85 to buy instead

M46 Patton...without upgraded tracks you can't even mount Pershing gun, you must use 90mm that M6 and T20 use with 160mm pen on T9 tank...luckily we have now premium shells available for credits so it facilitate the grind, but still it was awful.
