Hiya tankers!

 

So, for the last two years I did a poll on which tanks per class and tier are considered must-have by you the community. However, with the large number of national blueprints handed out for leveling up your Festive Cheer, I wonder which tanks you consider as the worst / most skippable. TVP VTU and AMX 65t come to mind already. Logic would dictate to use them on TXs since they give the largest XP discount, but most T9s are considered quite playable, so I want to know specific tanks.

 

I dont want to spam this section with 11 seperate threads (one poll per nation), so I am hoping the following format will be user friendly enough for people to fill it in. Just copy the list below and paste & answer it in your comment:

 

CHN: 

CZE: 

FRA:

GER: 

ITA:

JPN: 

POL: 

SWE: 

UK: 

USA: 

USSR: 

 

You dont have to stick to one choice per nation, since some nations have multiple classes and large trees, so feel free!

 

TL/DR: If you could skip one tank per nation: which would it be? 

 

Thanks,

Dutch

 

PS I know we have this thread (http://forum.worldoftanks.eu/index.php?/topic/729359-how-to-best-use-the-national-fragments/#topmost), but it talks more about how to utilise BPs in general, and not giving tips to folks (like myself) which tanks it could be applied to and save some credits & frustration. 

 

EDIT: Maybe I should have specified Tier 5+ :teethhappy:

I just recently played the tier 6 Italian, and it wasn't that bad. I feel the tier 7 is worse.

It was a long time ago, but somehow it's coming back to me - you are right, tier 6 wasn't so bad. It also had a nice alpha :D

Really? The tank that is often used for sealclubbing cause of both the armor and it's derp guns ability to one-shot tanks.

The hetzer is one of the most fun low tier tanks. You can one shot equal tiers / tier 5s while many tier 4s struggle to pen you.

I picked higher tier tanks in general, because low tiers are not that big of a deal.

Cuz it's a tank  with the shape of a TD and the gun is odd positioned
I understand what you mean but compared to other tier4 it's one of the worst among the amx40
"Also, Jingles hates it."

Because it has terrible platform that is unfun to play for anyone who wanted proper MTs like Sherman.

Also it's tier 4 so every new player gets to it without knowing the basics.

I guessed as much and that is why I did not reply. My more limited skills at the higher tiers means I am not as qualified to offer opinion. There are, however, two that I really hated with some justification, IMHO. The Sturer Emil- way too slow to be of any use, although its gun is amazing, and the VK 4501 A, which is a lousy medium tank masquerading as a lousy heavy tank.


 

edit- got my med and heavy mixed up.

Ran out of likes, but thanks to all who commented so far, and to those who will. :great:
