Good god the British turretless TD line is horrible.

I got the AT-2 less than 1 year after initially playing wot....3+ years later I have just unlocked the tier 8.

 

Literally everything from tier 6+ is bad 

They are supposed to have armour but that never works, even when people dont even aim for my weakpoints and just fire blindly from halfway across the map they still manage to pen.

 

The alpha is crap, ok they have good dpm but its totally pointless because you need to just sit there getting shot at to use it

 

Everytime i play this line a piece of me dies inside, its just a horrible horrible grind.

 

I was initially going to just grind out this line to have a tier 10 TD so i could do 8k damage for TD15 but i did it in my tier 9 Strv-103 so no need anymore.

So I have to ask, Is the deathstar worth getting?

Deathstar is a one trick pony.

 

The vast majority of your shells will completely miss, even at point blank range.

The ones that do hit qwill completely troll you for damage.

 

The <1% of your shells that hit for maximum damage and completely wreck something will make it worth playing for the giggles.

 

Very much like the T49.

Try grind the Leo 1 or M48 line without any free exp and you'll quickly change your mind. :)

Worst grind i've come across so far that I remember is the British heavy line.

Lorraine 40T at tier IX, stock before any of the later buffs. Goodness this was the worst.

M46 Patton. What's that? You want to play a tier 9 med and unlocked the gun from the Pershing? Well, you can't use it. Why? REASONS!!!

Chinese tier V Type T-34. Oh my god. Super low alpha, low pen and more bloom than a 2005 video game. Worst grind of my life, I just yolo'd my daily doubles with it until I unlocked the tier 6 tanks.

But those vehicles are still mediums. They can move and look around. Doesn't matter how stock those are, they still can't stink more than a slow turretless TD turd.

Anything tier eight and above is just horrific. Also, and this is through observation rather than experience, I can't say that the Brit heavy line looks very tempting with all those Churchills.

Sturer Emil.... With the stock gun. No speed, no armour, no pen, no alpha, no nothing. Ow, it has some good gun depression, but then the traverse will make you miss as you need to aim again. Gave up as you need 60k XP for the top gun.

Challenger before top gun.  Dreadful.  Challenger after top gun nearly as bad.
