I wonder if you have a tank that theoritically supposed to perform good but for some 'mistique' reason it gets terrible win ratio as if it is cursed.

That happens with my Pz III/IV. Although I have other medium tanks and some are close to 60%, 55% or average 50%, whenever I try playing Pz III/IV it is at 40% or below and I get terrible results with it while seemingly it is very good tank. I have no real explanation for that.

On XBox I had 42% on my Cromwell but 65% on my Knight (Cromwell B with clown camo) after ~75 battles on both, all battles played with them using same crew during the same timespan.

Kills, avg dmg, spots and hitratio was almost identical...

The Patriot. I'm probably the reason as to why WG doesn't think it's OP. I alone pull the average numbers of the tank down to "acceptable levels"

Jagdpanther. Just can't get a break in it. Two marks, aced it several times, MM just shafts me over and over with teams that don't want to play. I've tried playing it every way I could think of, nothing helped. Just tried again, and of course, another loss on a crapmap with a passive team.

 

Pershing as well, though I also didn't play it that well, but not that bad to get the winrate I have in it.

 

In the Churchill I and VII I have the opposite, really can't take playing those tanks seriously, just played them full yolo mode... Great winrate in both...

Hi!

> Cursed tanks

My old T-54.

Most of my mid-tier mediums have 55%+ WR. With T-54 I started with 40% after 200 battles. :ohmy: When "gold" ammo became available for credits, I loaded 80% gold and even with that didn't manage to get over 50% in next 470 battles. :facepalm:

 

It took me horribly long to realize I have to play differently in top tiers as I play in mid tiers. And because I don't like that change of gameplay, I don't play top tiers anymore.

 

BR,  Iztok

Me too! Everything seems to pen me and I am wondering if I failed to equip the OP armour in garage before rolling out. lol

T-54, vk 30.01P, Patriot (incredible bot team magnet, only play it for credits) and obj 268. I'm sure there are others but can't remember now.

Tiger P - it just won't hit anything and gets walloped by anything. After looking at the vid Cobra put in another thread I'm trying it differently.

Cromwell. Can't understand why is considered so strong. Bad gun handling, bad gun, bad armour. T-34-85 is better, IMO...

And strangely I got a better WR on comet, despite being almost stock (while this can be biased by low battle count).

T67
T-34-85 (and variants)

Both supposed to be a bit OP, but not in my hands.

I got T26E5 (not Patriot)  as a gift and are having same terrible streak, win rate going below 40%. Of course, MM is not very merciful for t8 tanks (mildly put), but still... for some reason i cant handle it. it would be excellent tank in team play, but in random, i don't know how to use it...it is something between medium and heavy, But it is not bad tank, that's for sure.

Amx 50 120 was brutal. Somewhat reasonable stats but a 43% winrate over 171 games. Challenger is even worse, can't win matches no matter if playing agressive or supporting.

The Cromwell B is the cursed one, possibly because it often has a new crew in it. But I have a 43% WR with the Cromwell B and a 59% WR with the regular Cromwell, identical tanks.

Mine is the opposite similar game count but I can't carry anywhere near in the Cromwell like in the Bromwell......

My Most cursed tank though HAS to be the STB-1...no matter what I do...and it's a shame because I love playing it..
