I've been plodding along the Panther II to E 50 grind for a while now.  Whilst I don't dislike the Panther II in principle constantly being bottom tier means that I never play more than a few games per session in it.  I don't even feel that it's particularly good against the current tier VIII premiums never mind staring down Type 5's that I can't seem to hurt or bat-chat / new lights that dance around me laughing.

 

I've been hoping that the E 50 would improve things a little but I'm losing the will to grind any more.  

 

Is it worth it or should I just give up and go play other tanks that I enjoy more?

Well I did enjoy the e50 and 50m but why don't you give this grind a rest and come back to it in a month or so?

It's what I do in such situations. It's not like it's a race to get to the end first

Once you have unlocked all the modules (free exp them) it's awesome.

E50 is a great tank (once fully upgraded). E50M is a nice tank as well.

 

Give the grind a rest for a week or so, come back later and try again.

Everything below Panther 2 was not really a hard grind, so not that important. Panther 2 I grinded mostly with x2s and that's it. Not a nice tank in my opinion, not as bad as VTU or T-34-2 either. Probably worth waiting for a x2 per victory event and some personal reserves to go past it ASAP. I free XPd the top gun for E50 and it's awesome. Was the easiest tier 9 grind ever because I saved all that free xp. E50M... bought it, haven't played it yet because my crew for it atm has only 2 skills in comparison to my E50s 4 skills.

One of the best/fun tanks tier for tier those T9/10 ones. Soldier through the grind. It will be worth it!

I unlocked the E50 not so long ago and i have to say its one of my favorite tanks in the game, its awesome gun is a dream to use, its like a laser. The mobilty is ok, armour works sometimes. The test server is up at the moment, download it and unlock the E50 and give it a go.

Thanks folks.

I'll keep plugging away at the daily x2 but not worry about it.  Eventually it will unlock.  I'll have enough free xp to unlock tracks and possibly turret but might have to suffer less than the best gun for a few games when I get there.  I'm in no rush just needed to know it was worth keeping on doing it.

LOL. Gut joke mate.

 

E50 is one of the best pub stompers in the game

I've just finished my Panther II grind but I've not bought the E50 yet so I can't say whether it was worth it, but I feel your pain. The Panther II isn't bad, just thoroughly mediocre in my view. I recommend just trying for your double each day and leaving it at that - it will take you a while but you'll get through it with the minimum number of games and avoid burning out.

You will be thoroughly rewarded once you finish the panther 2 grind and e50 stock grind. Mount the 105 for domination and 88 L100 for the lols, everything apart from the pen and mobility (which is not bad anyway) is just superb.

For damage farmin yeah but wining nope. E50 has staying power. That means a lot in corridor meta

Thanks again everyone.  WoT being WoT after I posted this yesterday I had a couple of really good games in the Panther II this morning.  I mean it's not like I have an awful record in it.

205 Battles, 59% win rate, WN8 (not that it matters) of 975.  Must have just been going through a bad patch for the last few days.  Also going to burn some of the 99+ personal reserves that I have as I have no real idea how I got that many and I might as well use them!

Not to burst your buble but wn8 matters. Wn8 around 1000 means in the long run your Win rate will be close to 50%. Unless you platoon.

My problem with WN8 is that it seems to focus on pure damage.  Not all damage done in a game is useful.  I do accept that doing no damage is always bad tho.  So yeah it's not a useless metric but it's not the one true measure of a player either.  I've struggled not to be rubbish at the game and I'm now at a point where I think I'm at least not a detriment to the team that gets me.  I doubt I'll get much better as I don't have the free time.  My biggest problem these days is lack of consistency.  When I fail I fail hard!

I agree wn8 is flawed. Not all damage is useful but then 59% win rate without excessive damage farming should equate to 2500-2800wn8. The difference between 1000 and 2500 is too damn big. As for getting better. Go to wotlabs they have a great topic on the forum agregating guides. Watch a few replays from Zeven. You can influence your gameplay in 1 day
