Something that always surprises me is how much people hate playing the Lee and the Grant.  Both, to my mind, are astonishingly good, my preference being for the Grant with its amazing 6 lbr gun

 

A recent game saw me hosing down a Churchill III and a Hetzer.  The Hetzer wasn't happy and pm'd me after:

They are both quite good if you can get them into a firing position. They are just not the kind of tank people expect when it says 'medium' on the tin. If they had been branded 'tank destroyer', they wouldn't have gotten quite such a bad reputation.

I can't even recall the last time I got the Aimbot rage PM. I've had the ROF hack and wallhack rage PM of late tho.

I play them as mediums rather than TDs

Awesome Epic Guys sometime play with the Lee. Improved equipment, good crew and good old fashioned cola and they achieve a monster DPM!

Would you take the Lee over the Grant?

The grant has the troll turret on top, but haven't played it. I played the lee tho, while grinding to the Sherman.

Have to check gun stat, but grant model looks better.

Grant model is newer compared to Lee AFAIK, hence why.

Lee has the 6 lbr, Grant the 75 mm.  Both have their pros and cons but I prefer the 6 lbr as it can rapid fire pen anything.

Isn't that the other way around?

It is indeed

I am pleased that someone in the class was able to spot my deliberate mistake
