After another quick session of loosing everygame even though you feel like you arent playing that bad, i decided to check my tank statistics and found 4 of these unique "cursed" tanks.

No matter how hard i try, i just cant seem to win with them.

Do you guys have similiar experiences with any of your tanks?

cursed1

cursed2

cursed3

cursed4

 

Im sure my winrates are lower with these also because i might be tilted and not playing well while i try to improve my winrate on them, but i think its still interesting.

Amx m4 mle. 51, supposed to be one of the best tier 9 heavies, after 35 games 37% WR. Am playing from stock though.

I have a number of tanks where the figures simply don't add up. Most recently, perhaps, we can compare the Skorpion G with the Rhm Borsig WT.

 

 

 

So there is a difference in average damage of only 150, but one has a decent positive WR and the other sucks.


If we analyse this further, I can tell you that one reason why the Skorpion has a worse damage rate is because of how quickly my teams fold. I have no allies, therefore I have no chance. But for a difference of 150 HP/battle, I have only won 16 out of 64 battles. That is insane.

 

Try these two for size

 

 

I enjoyed the Pershing to some extent, and tried to play to its strengths, hull down with great gun depression. I so wanted to like it, and even bought it back to give it a second chance. Nope. Not happening, and yet it has more average damage than the Centurion, that I didn't even like.

 

And yet there are some tanks that are widely disliked that I didn't do too badly with, even if it was luck more than anything else. Check this. :trollface:

 

 

35 wins with what is terrible average damage. :amazed:

If we use my average WR as a point of reference, and go back in time to when I had played 300 different tanks, then roughly 145 of them had WRs 1% or more below the average. I'm unsure how many of them should be considered cursed but I suspect you'd have to deem just about the same number of tanks, since about 145 tanks had a WR above my average...

not played the Fatton yet,

but the Object 416 is an awesome tank (once fully upgraded and the crew is a bit trained)

I needed quite a lot of games to learn to obey the gun depression limits but then the camo is godly, use it.

It's probably not the tank as much as the bad luck. You get spells of winning and losing and every once in a while one of those lines up with the start of grinding a new tank. Still very annoying when you are losing the vast majority of games though.

No I just played like crap, hence I lost often.

Sadly no curse to blame here.

Most of the tanks I play in recent times have like 55-60% WR but as soon as I play tier 10 I get bombarded by 15-4 losses. No matter what I do almost every game I play is a loss at this tier ffs. 4k 5k 6.5k damage and still losing. I've pretty much accepted it at this point.

No matter how hard I try, I can't seem to be able to do any good in it, even now when I've recently tried to play it again. Probably one of the only tanks I still perform really, really bad in.

I am terrible in all light tanks....and most mediums. TDs I don't fare very well in. Heavy's I have no clue about. I end up scrolling to the wrong end of the mini map when pressing G in arty. I do ok in the Achilles on occasion.
