Finished Black (*edited*) Prince ([edited]) grind last night and sold it immediately. For those that want to play it FREE XP it and do not bother. Along with difficult teams last days (maybe the stupid T3 premium at fault) had the greatest loss streak ever in wot. The tank cannot carry its weight at all. Slow, *edited* gun crap armor and 80% bottom tier. Result from 49.67 -> 49.59 WR. I still do not know when i have the strength to push battle again after this.

 

PS. For those teammates that i yelled and sweared during this struggle of mine i give my sincerely apologies !!! Sorry for my behaviour

You won a great battle with yourself. Conglaturation! :D

I've tried grinding this line a while ago, but I stopped at Churchill VII. This was before it had 960 hp. I think I have my worst win rate in that, ~30%.

Someday, I might go for it, not yet though.

At least Caernaverenen will not be a pain as it has awesome dpm/pen.

Thanks mate. Yet you have to unlock the gun so in my case i will gather all the necessary free xp so that i will not use the *edited* stock gun.

I have some mad respect for you. Its one of those lines I started but did not finish. All because of the horrible combination of speed, armor and a piece of *edited* gun.

It's a *edited* tank yeah, but definitely not the worst grind in the game. And the Caernarvon is worth it, dayum, 1212 base xp yesterday, 2nd class 0.o

1. Sturer Emil

2. Black Prince

 

Both are slow, bot are inflexible, both are arty magnets and both rely on morons driving in to your gun if you hope to do anything. The Black Prince also has an impotent gun. GG 150 alpha with atrocious pen.

I also recently played through Black Prince. I just pressed W in every game and hoped to reach some hull down location near enemies so I can actually do something.

 

Black Prince is clearly so sad, because WG wants people to use free XP for high tier British heavies. There is no other explanation.

It just got power creeped rather badly.

When I played it a couple of years ago it was far more competitive. I played 500 + games in mine with a 56% wr which was excellent for me at that time. Its now been made completely redundant though due to jap heavies and the influx of overpowered t8 tanks. Its a shame as in its day it was a great tank to learn how to angle and scrape, now u just get laughed at and spammed by godzillas.

Never had an issue with the Black Prince.

 

AMX65t though....

 

And T28 prot.  But that was before they gave it a lid and a bit of speed.

The fact of the matter is that WG have always seemed to have a policy of putting the odd "dog" in every nation that just invites players to use free exp.

Sturer Emil = the grind I have hated the most.

AMX65t = urgh

Black Prince is poor but I would rate it less appalling than those two.

The Challenger used to be a really bad td, but I have not played it since the buffs.

Why would you do this and not just go through the heavy line before that?
