OK, when I started tho play the game I taught I will never sell a tier X tank once I buy it. 3 Years later, I have sold 3! Here is why: 

 

My very first tier X tank was E 100. I loved it and it big gun, but once I got the Maus (in it's buffed stage) I transferred E 100's crew to the Maus leaving the 100 with no crew (and equipment). When I finally reached Type 5 Heavy, I needed credits and made a decision. If I had to play a heavy tank in tier x, and had to chose between Maus, Type 5 and E 100, the 100 would always be the #3 choice. So I decide to sell it and use the money to buy the Type 5. 

 

The second tank that I sold was Object 268. I just hated it. For me it was such a downgrade from Object 704. Used the money to go for the Object 263. 

 

The Third tanks was Badger. I played like little over 20 battled with it and was not all that impressed. It stayed on my garage for some time until I needed credits for Object 268 V4.  Once again I asked myself a question. Between the 2 which one I would play more, the slow (but armored) Badger with it's less than 500alpha, or the fast, armored 650alpha OP Version 4. I made the decision. Sold it and bought the Version 4. 

 

I currently have 5 Tier X tanks in garage and I don't think of selling any of them...for now. 

 

PS: for those wondering what Tier X and in my garage: Maus, Type 5, JgPz E100, Obj. 268 V4 and Fv215b (183). 

 

What tier X have you had but sold? And why?

Grille 15, T62a and Kranvagn because they are irrelevant crap.

Just got 1 tier 10, the IS-4, but won't never sell it. Selling tier 10 is wrong IMO as the cost a fortune and one day will be buffed or changed for another tier 10.

If you beleve you won't like a tank, don't buy it. I have 268 unlocked but I haven't buy it yet because they said it's not as good as 704 and I need a different crew (cause 704 is a keeper).

I have sold:

IS4 : Powercreeped, Potato gun ,Premium ammo spam meta.

T110E5 : That tumor makes it impossible to play it like a Heavy tank. Everybody snipes the copula like there is no tomorrow. Im not driving a Heavy to be a second line sniper.

E-50-M : I just didnt like the slow turning, huge hull, low dpm sniper playstyle. Armor doesnt hold up in Premium spam meta. (may rebuy this one later but needed cash and wasnt playing it )

E50M, wanted the crew for E50.

113 and 121, irrelevant when there's 420U.

268, crap.

The only tier 10 I sold was E100. Playing it was just painfull. Still, I decide never to sell another tier 10, even if it sucks. It's a waste of credits.

E100 - too fat & too slow.

T57 Heavy - BIG disappointment after T54E1

Grille 15

Great gun on a useless platform, huge downgrade from the Borsig. The WT IV is not much better but still painful to have such a big paper target where even HE will pen

Sold it 1 time. No plans to get it back.

 

T57 Heavy

As Erwin already stated, it was a big disappointment coming from the T54E1. Turret ring is an obvious target and unless turret down, you won't bounce anything. Also, the hull is the same toilet paper as the M103. 44mm won't bounce anything so forget about sidescraping (inb4 someone states otherwise).

Sold it 2 times. There are plans to get it back (T54 project; there was a picture around it somewhere that showed turrets and such but I can't find it.

 

Badger

Armour? Means jack when people will just spam gold at it. Together with it's slowlilness, RIP you. Highest DPM means nothing if you can't even reach where you're supposed to be in order to use it

Sold it 1 time. No plans to get it back.

 

EDIT: Found it, but it's about the T95, my bad.

Obj261 then bought it back 2 weeks later because I wanted an arty to leech a few bonds in ranked battles.

 

Which gives me 22 tier X sat in my garage.

I sold the E50M and the E100 some years ago, were my 2 first tier 10s and I was dissapointed by their performance (I found out that I was dissapointed by my own performance, was just an average noobie back then).

I bought them back when I gathered the credits.

I could/should probably sell the t-62a, as it doesn't really have a purpose in the game at the moment, after the 140 buff and introduction of the 430u it's just useless. I kind of hope they will do something nice with it at some point, but for now it's just sitting around without a crew.

E50m bought and sold twice :) same again for 113. E100 sold and bought back. Sold the fv4005 might buy back.

Reasons, Im not very good in them.

I have Grille and t62a sat with no crew.

Just bought the kranvagn, its not great. T10 doesnt really appeal to me its just to campy.

which haven't I, is a better question.

GW E100, Bat.Chat 155 58 - arty changes made me sell these. I loved the Bat Chat, because of being able to relocate and shoot people from close and unexpected angles. Since it doesn't do much damage anymore, especially on Maus, Type 5 etc (who will only laugh at you) I hated it.

T110E5 - obvious reason

Object 140 - don't really like a tier 10 with such low alpha. you don't see many low alpha tier 10's anymore because of this.

-Bat Chat 25T, WZ 111 5A. Got tired of both just because I couldn't make the same tank work on tier 10, or WG f*cked my games in it for no reason. Constantly losing the good games and winning only trash battles.

 

Right now I have only Conqueror GC for missions and bonds, M48 Patton, 113 (though I don't like it, same reason as 5A), Super Conqueror, FV215B, and recently bought IS-7, which I found interesting enough to try and it seems to fit my play style.

Doesn't make sense, as you first have to play it before you're able to judge if it's good (enough) for you or not:facepalm:
