But have learned to love again, what are yours?

 

Currently I am really loving my AT15a, yes I know it is a premium but on the flip side i am liking the Churchill Black Prince too and the Pz.KpfwIV Ausf.H

 

Just creating a thread that is not a whinge or a whine:popcorn:

Weird topic, no whining...

 

T-150 is my new tank I like. I used to hate it, but now I like it a lot. It is a real padder

I wasn't very happy with my Stug III.  It was too twitchy and difficult to drive.  Then I realised that It was one of my best performing tanks, and now play it practically every time I log in.

I was so sure I'd sell the AMX 12t after finishing the 65k XP grind to the french arty tree. The last 4k was so fun I decided to keep it. I'm not sure however if this love will last very long, that's only 3 days ago. Let's talk in some months :mellow:

IS-M, kinda.

 

I despised it for the first 40 battles, sold it, rebought after 2 months, and then enjoyed it A LOT more. Still didn't like it enough to be a keeper for me, but that's the case for almost every non-premium tier 8, anyway, even if it is a good tank.

I genuinely am consistent in my dislike for tanks, while I find that some do get more enjoyable to play once you're no longer driving the stock trash version, the overall playstyle frequently shows right from the first battle.

 

I guess one tank that I no longer dislike so much is the Konstrukta T34/100... though I still think it's a terrible tank, since it's fully upgraded I've had a few really nice battles with it but it's hugely team dependent.

Light tanks in general and the 13 90 in particular. Man was i bad in that tank! :) Still trying to improve my light game play but the improved gun handling combined with the smaller magazine helps a lot with this tank.

T67. Went back to it on a whim and it has become my go to tank. Pretty sick of high tier nonsense.

Weird topic, no whining...

 

I don't like < tank > and it's WG's fault because [ power creep | OP premiums | UP premiums | premium account time | gold ammo (rescinded) | hidden stats | heavy-handed moderation in general chat | Dinger shills | it's Thursday ] (circle the appropriate answers or leave blank to blame WG on all counts).

 

I've had a few tanks that I've abandoned the grind and returned to them only to find that I still feel exactly the same way. I sold my SU-85 twice before finishing that grind and that's only a tier 5 so it's not as though the xp requirement to finish it off was particularly punishing, I simply didn't like it.

 

I recently bought back the Crusader SP, sold that long before the arty changes because the backwards driving was annoying me and the gun didn't make up for it. Now the gun isn't so bad, though I started it with a 75% crew so I've seen a distinct improvement as they get close to 100%. The backwards thing still annoys the crap out of me, I like to relocate when playing arty and always go through a shuffle as I sort out which way I need to turn.

 

I think in general my issues with any tank is PEBKAC, I don't know what I'm doing with it. If I like a tank, I'll hang on to it unless I need the slot. If I don't like a tank, I'll finish the grind and it's sold. Maybe I don't give the ones I don't like enough time to learn how to exploit what they're good at and mitigate their failings properly but I can suck horribly in a tank and hang on to it because I know there's something in it.

 

More thought, less dismissal of "bad" or "awkward" tanks such as my constant dismissal of heavies with "I can't play them". That's got to be a reasonable approach.

You forgot broken matchmaker and RNG rigging. Bad WG shill!

Both LTG and ARL 44 - hated them at the beginning after started playing with good commander and 75% noob rest of the crew, together with grinding modules. Turned out to be one of the better keepers in my garage. Also, changing 105mm to top 90mm for ARL 44 improved the gameplay a lot - couldn't hit anything with 105mm.

 

Also, both KV-1 and T-34 were hard to play a few years ago for me as a newbie. Now I'm training already a third crew in them, they don't get old. Especially KV-1 with its choice of guns - pew pew pew 57mm murderer (bringing death by a thousand cuts), 122m lol-derp or 85 all rounder? Not to mention being unstoppable steamroller as top tier.

I've kinda gone the other way. I used to love my Matilda (for obvious reasons) but now it just feels a bit meh for some reason. 

I have found a new love for the Mutz though, I regretted it at first but now it feels better but FL may have skewed my view.

T95 pre speed buff was the worst grind i've ever done. Felt like it went on forever.

The Cromwell. Hated it at first , terrible WR and constantly dying. Then I learnt via playing light tanks how to get the best out of it and am now an avid fan.

 

The most hated is the Panther 2 which I will never love and was so glad to sell the instant I unlocked the E-50.

Tier 5 Leopard. Bought it back in the day when it was a tier 4 and it was the end of the line. I hated it and sold it off around the first time they changed the line. I had 124 games in it then. Bought it back 2 weeks ago as I never aced it when I owned it the first time. And I had a spare crew lying around. I've played around 50 ish games in it. And it's actually more fun then I thought it would be.

I hated the leopard when I was grinding it and haven’t touched it since. Now I have some good crews and can play lights a bit better I might give it another go.

Play it as ambush when you can. I aced it with a radleys on tundra and the whole battle was just staying low and pouncing on people. God damn that was a fun battle.

only tank i have ever hate is e5.

when i reached tierX, those things were like steamrollers, across the map. HT flank, MT flank,  spoting you name it.

you cant pen hatch with regular ammo, on LFP you have 4-5 pixels where you need to shoot in order to pen...

and those e5 were spaming HEAT all over my beloved is7 :(

 

Rest in hell, e5.

Well, at first I hated the Stug IV, but it sort of grew on me after parting with the original Stug lll. Nowadays I kinda like it.

RHM Borsig WT we had a rough start with. I just couldn't make either of the guns work. After my break from the game I took the big gun and I was happy muppet grinding it and now got the tier9 from the line.

S35 Ca was tier5 in the very first line I reached tier7 with. After realizing what a heap of turd that line is, I sold the tier7 and later my friend recommended I buy the S35 to house my crew and to have fun. And what do you know, I really like it now. :)

Amx Elc Bis was my first real light tank and as a total tomato with no skills crew was horrible experience. Later on I got bored with my LefH and bought the Elc back and put the LefH crew in it and I've been enjoying it since.

 

There might be more of those. I'm really trying to enjoy my Panther 88, but it keeps ignoring my advances.
