I was wondering if anybody else had a supposedly good tank that they just can’t get to work for them?

 

For me it is the Pz B2. Always top tier match making, great armour and meh gun it should be a seal clubbing beast. I got mine as part of the WOT Italeri Tiger model package. However, I have a terrible WR in it (47%) after 90 odd games well below my 51.9% average. I just can’t get it to work, possibly because I am not good with heavies or I am trying to be too aggressive.

 

What good tank do you struggle with?

Well, I have Pz. IV H, StuG III, Marder 38t, Pz. III/IV but looking at WN8 I suck the least in.....DW2. So, all I guess?

American T7 heavy tank, the T29... I have a WR of 38% in it... every shot that hits it penetrates, every fully aimed shot I fire misses the enemy tank completely

Conqueror Tier 9, it appears like all shots penetrate my turret. Very frustrating

The new Tier 9 French HT. I just got it past 40% WR again. So it's moving up.

Currently the T-10, I am grinding three tier 9s at the moment, 430 v2 which is an awkward rear turreted med, the Standard B which is a paper med with an awkward reload and the T-10, which is probably the most well rounded, comfortable and meta suited tank out of the three.

 

But I am not doing well with it, I have 3 marked a few tier 9s and generally average around 2.8k to 3k damage these days,  but with the T-10 I am barely at 2.1k DPG and I am consistently having poor games with it.

 

Win rate is ok but I think that is more luck than anything as it's only about 50 games. 

 

Just don't get it, I'm usually good with heaviums but the T-10 just doesn't seem to work for me.

When I got the Archer, I wanted to grind it as quick as possible. I thought it was horrible and awkward. Ended up acing it and getting 59% WR. Moved onto the Achilles and I loved it. Good mobility, fast firing accurate gun, good camo and it has a turret. Can't get above 45% WR in it, in spite of trying a hell of lot harder than I did with the Archer. There are some things I just do not understand.

T26E5 Patriot seems to be praised by everyone as OP but i don't think it's particularly good.

Same here, also the T34-85M, that one never works for me

Honestly, anything that has paper armour. I give up on those, and decided to cave to grinding towards the Stalinese impenetratnium-armoured meds.

I hated both M4 and Pz4h derps. And Jumbo. I'm currently struggling with Batchat 25ap a lot and I hated Hellcat (33% wins) to bits.

T-54 Lightweight, it just doesn't work for me compared to pretty much any other light tank I play.

I honestly find it a thoroughly average tank, a heavily gimped medium which gets spotted as easily as one when I'm driving it.

Most tier 10 tanks :hiding:

 

It's the tanks' fault, I swear!

I tried it on test server. Honestly couldn't find a single reason why I would play that instead of real T-54.

You said good tanks. PzB2 is not a good tank... If i would chose a tier 4 tank in similar role i would chose Matilda to say about it's a good tank.

I can work any good tank more or less but i can't play and find frustrating every bad tank. Sooo it seems that a bad tank might just be entirely subjective and thus your question doesn't really have sense. :bajan:

OMG this is so cool!!

You are exactly opposite of me :D

Hellcat is one of my best tanks, and I love my Jumbo derp, hahaha.

 

My tank that is supposedly very good but I struggle in is Type 64, I have waaaaaay better stats in 59-16.

I think it's because it is automaticly a target, it's like I can hear enemy chat going "Take out that Type, he is dangerous!". If I am in 59-16 and people know they will get shot back in order to hit me they mostly don't bother, but if I am in the Type 64 they will be more than happy to recieve 2-3 shots back just to hit me once. I have even sat next to an E-25, we were both spotted and arty chose me ...

 

Another enigma for me is the M6, some people seem to really love it. I rage-sold it and grinded both T29 and T20 from Jumbo instead.  (Which I am very happy about since Jumbo is awesome! :D )

For me M6 was a cardboard box the size of a house with a pea shooter on top.
