Pay attention cause here it comes:

Why is every Pz38na driver in the history of mankind wearing a red outfit?

Don't be in shock just tell me.

I have 10k battles and this has become possibly one of the most familiar sites in WoT.

They say every rule has an exeption, well I have not seen it, seriously NEVER.

Why, just why.

There's a rational explanation to everythting, this one just escapes me.

I scroll all the way down at the bottom of the list and when I see one it's always armed and ready with a healthy dose of lycopene.

Help!

It's because most noobs play it to get to the Tiger- which is pretty much why people play the German line first.

I've a theory on this !!!!!!!! 

Basically we have an average n00b who heard about WoT who always wanted to play tank games because he is natural born tanker and tanks have big guns.He opens up WOT and then choses to go for German Tiger tank because they're the only ones who's names he recognises from his history classes and takes nickname "Wittmann" because that is the only nick that can be used by such perfect tanker. Naturally he cant register with Wittmann because it is occupied so he takes next available nick "Witman4356823" becoming n00b nr. 4356823

He thinks that when he gets Tiger tank, he will drive around killing poor M4's and T-34's so he doesn't even bother playing lower tiers that much apart from the terribad german scouts , he just kinda suicide rushes in order to get that Tiger tank and he learns nothing in the process hence all the bad Pzn 38s 

Then when he finally gets that Tiger tank... he has a problem. He doesn't face M4's and T-34 but IS's, T29's... and even sometime Jtigers and ST-1s .
He could pen them, but he doesn't know about weak points, and he can even bounce... but he doesn't know anything about angling...
He thinks that kills are only relevant stat, so he tries to kill those 5% HP targets which leads to him thinking that his poor 41% winratio is because he gets teamed up with morons

By then he starts to lose money big time (since he deals such low dmg)

Which leads to his decision to rebuy the highest tank in his tree that he can afford , which happens to be the PZ 38 and he thinks awesome I make 10K per game by pressing Rx3 and scouting all the enemy tanks , I'm a pro scout and then the cycle repeats until tier 10

It's just camo. And it works pretty well. You can't distinguish them from any other reds.

I would say that Pz 38 drivers are better than ELC drivers though. If an ELC lives past 1st min of game he is good.

That's true for EVERY light driver... or scout driver, to be more precise.

not only the siema-wittmann effect hardy described, but also good players know that a pz38na is pretty crap so most of them will not play it. I also think a lot of players start out as a siema0wittmann, I know I did. I went straight for the tiger :D(luckily back then you could still get that through the pzIII instead of the 38na)
