This topic is useless. It's only on the test server and the stats are not final.

Nice poll, won't vote. There are people which will grind it for various reasons. The tank may be crap, but people will still grind it.

As they stand no they're among the worst tanks in the game.

British lights are just an indirect buff to German lights. Change my mind.

It's basically the only line I've got left, and already amassed 77k on Cromwell since the announcement.

 

It's gonna be a crappy grind, but I've got 5 daily bonuses and that will make it fly.

Stupid question, idiotic poll. It's almost like people don't understand what test servers are for.

When WG announce final release stats you can maybe ask, until then just give them feedback.

It will be worth it no matter what state they are in when they are released. It's not painful to grind bad tanks, it's a challenge, some people are not up to that sort of thing. I can't understand people who only want to play things that are either very good, or at least decent, are they afraid of their WR dropping by 0.01% or a slight reduction in average DMG?

In current state of these tanks you would just be handicapping yourself and your team. 

 

It's not a challenge, its just stupid. 

 

It's like playing football in flip flops, yeh you can do it, but it doesn't mean you should do it.

The Senlac looks interesting but thats typical WG, create a premium thats way better than the whole tech tree.

 

If they release the tanks in the current state only the few tank collectors will be interested, but 90% of the player base doesnt see to watch YT or come to the forums.

 

Its also WGs marketing thats misleading.  People will grind them. and WG will see it as a blinkered success.

Senlac though is not actually very good, its just A LOT better than the tech tree tanks. 

 

Compare it a HWK-30 for example - https://tanks.gg/v10600ct/compare/senlac?t=hwk-30

 

HWK-30 is better in most ways, and the Senlac is actually quite large unlike the tech tree tanks so doesn't have great camo either.

Didnt say it was very good, but interesting due to being better than ALL the line,  I know these tanks are on the test server but there is NO incentive to grind. none, I cant imagine WG changing them that much.

Nice unbiased poll you have there. /s

 

More seriously, I think that yes I will try the branch because the LHMTV and the Manticore look interesting despite their shortcomings.

Nope, but it's another tank line wich can recieve adjustments and buffs if needed, maybe skilled player could even get satisfaction in learning how to master it cuz they're hard to play
I do not think wg will force us to play only Brit LT :trollface:

Plus i consider them in a safe position for  new players, since they come after Cromwell and a new player will have all the time  while grinding to search about this line and stay away from it goin for the mediums maybe

Edit: but i agree with MJingles and others---> it would have been better to use historical tanks, everyone love historical tanks!

"ebr line is better"

mate every single line in this game is better than them, even the german lights are such a massive improvement over them that its laughable

They are light tanks, WG wont buff them to be competetive, like they havent done with most of the rest of the lights.

I feel these three possible answers cover the entire spectrum of possibilities, from the rational to the "I'll grind pretty much anything if the Queen is involved" crowd.

Do you then think that whenever people grind a line that has a crap tank in it, they should stop at the tank prior to it and don't go any further? 

 

Like, should only the people who can afford to completely free xp past the 65t be the ones to get the Skoda tanks? Should all players save enough free xp to elite any new tank they get instead of playing it stock and be at a disadvantage, and thus put their team at a disadvantage?

 

I'm sure WG would love that.

Are you familiar with the concept of fun? It's one of the main reasons I play games, and if there's a wealth of tanks to play and some of them are so bad they're little more than an endless supply of frustration I don't play those tanks unless I'm in a particularly hateful mood. It has nothing to do with win rate; if I gave even the slightest of fvcks about my stats I wouldn't own three quarters of the crap in my garage in the first place let alone play them, but the game itself offers more than enough opportunities to get annoyed without playing a vehicle that appears to have been meticulously engineered to suck up all enjoyment one might otherwise find in the game.

Yes, I am familiar enough with the concept to know that it has a meaning that depend on the individual. To me, for example, winning can be considered fun, as I suspect it is for you too, but not important enough in itself to see me only play the tanks that I do well in, I need more variety than that. I very much find it unfun to spend an evening playing the same 5 tanks over and over. This is one of the reasons I pretty much grind everything, so that every time I log in I can play for quite a while without ever getting through all of them, making one session different than the next.

 

This is why something that is useless to others is useful for me. It doesn't matter if one tank is very underwhelming ccompared to the one next to it. The fun lies in the variation, not repeating limited parts of the game according to vehicle parameters.
