For me that tank is wz-120. Recently bought it for 40% off, researched from the chinese ligh tank line (wz-132). The stock gun was absolutly horrible. Worse pen then wz-132 (seriusly wargaming) no accuracy or aimtime to speak of, no snappability, no alpha, no dpm... 45k xp grind to get the next gun. That is when tank gets a little better with better aim time and dpm. Then after also researching the turret I could immideatly put the top gun on, since i bought the better suspension modul pack  for 125k silver to get around another 22k xp grind for tracks. Fortunatelly I had the top gun already researched from 113. Now the tank has even worse aim time then stock gun and depression...... well lets just say this tank is very happy. But there is something soooo satisfying about that alfa I just cant stop playing it even though I am terrible in it. I just love flanking some unsuspecting heavy and dealing him 440 dmg and then quickly backing back behind cover. Or when some medium tank thinks he got the better of me right before I answer back with my huge gun. What is surprising about wz-120 is that dpm is acctually not that bad.

 

So what are some of yours favourite tanks that are horrible, yet you enjoy playing with them.

Loved the IS6 but it was too much work to make it work

M56 Scorpion. There's a reason it will be given away so easily. But it's unique and therefore worth a match once in a while.

WZ-120 is the last tier 9 grind I did. Tho my time with it was short as I had used 7 blueprint parts on tier X, and had the gun and engine from the HT lane. So I only have like 38 ish games in it. But the -3 gun depression did limit my usual play area on some maps. Just had to alter my usual play area and it did work rather well at times.

 

As for horrible favorites? Archer is one that not many enjoy. But I take out now and then as I love how so many underestimate it.

I picked one up as well while it was cheap. If I hate it I'm blaming you.

Bad ( subjective ) tanks I enjoy playing:

 

A44 - 300 Alpha on a T7 medium <3

T-34-2 -  I just like it !

WZ120 - as above.

Churchill I - No idea why.

VK36.01H - pretend it's a medium still ....

 

Probably more but those come to mind

The problem, as I see it, with the VK3601H is not how it's played but what it's matched against as a heavy tank.

 

Possibly the Churchill VII and the KV-2 (for mobility and reload time) are worse.

 

For tanks that I perceive (from forum comments) to be unpopular, my best candidates would appear to be the SU-85, the Archer and the T-34/100.

If I enjoy a tank, I don't consider it bad then. All that matters is my opinion of the tank. If I enjoy it - then it's a good tank.

For me it is the Matilda Black Prince... A slow medium tank made even slower by having a turret transplanted from a slow heavy tank, and I regularly run out of ammo playing it, but it is my 4th most played tank in the game

2 days ago I loaded HE to torment this little thing. It almost felt like a sin to do that to such a cute Wall-E.

[edited] tanks to play? FV 215b for me. I will never get bored of this gun. It almost feels like the accuracy nerf has never happened.

Does the M46 KR count? For some reason I still haven't managed to get it to 3MOE. Maybe I shoot too much AP, but I keep bouncing between 94% and 85%.

Indien panzer. Average 47% WR jumped to 54% in the last 50k exp, and I finished the grind with 2 marks on it. A hidden surprise are the HE shells with 330 dmg and 90 pen.

IS-6, as long as you just accept the fact that you gonna be underdog most of the time and you just gotta fire gold in most matchups.

 

Makes me worried what will happen to it after they nerf gold rounds..

Same as you OP, I enjoy the WZ-120, and I understand why people hate it. I still find it quite unique with 440 alpha medium tank at tier 9. I think they should either buff the gun handling or depression because right now it only has more alpha/penetration than T-54/55, other than that it is worse in every way.

 

I also quite enjoyed T-34-100 and TVP VTU Koncept.

 

Chi Ri count as bad tank ? I liked that one too.
