So, I have just purchased the Panther 2 and i am playing it with the following:

-Fully grinded tank except of the last 88 gun(playing the shorter 88)

-BiA, 6th sense, recon as crew skills(other crew only have the first skill at around 60 %)

-Stabs, Vents, Optics.

 

I have played like around 10 battles and I have not won more than 2. I have looked on various guides on how to play this, but everyone told me its a bad tank and just ''Deal with it''. How tf to deal with it if I am getting 400xp per battle, dosent matter if i do 0 or 2k damage. I have tried brawling, flanking and supporting but nothing helped and I am always at the bottom of my team. This tank destroys my stats and my sanity and idk how to do it. Please help

 

PS: Yeah, I know, my stats suck, but I am no hardcore player, nor some unicum how can carry his team, so get good messages wont help

Tried the TVP yet. That's proper rubbish but like the Panther 2, my advice would be to get through the grind as quickly as possible, sell it and never think of it again ☺

Yeah, I Was one of the lucky fellas who got to use all of those bluprints to free xp it and get directly to tier 9. I should've tought that the fact that i free xp'd the Panther 1 shouldve told me something. I just hope i wont go below 38% win and 300wn8 after grinding this piece of crap

Well after getting a feel for it I could kinda make it work even though it wasn't enjoyable but then again I have 1500 battles in the CDC so IDK...

Tbh I'm finding the E50 way worse which kinda sucks but it doesn't really lay with me

Its a Turd,

 

But my love of Panthers, I just cant sell it, its the most dust covered tank in my garage, Its slow, its the size of a house and lacking Pen, it either needs a buff or limited MM.

I didn't think it was awful-tvp and pershing were worse. T34-2 was ALOT worse.  It certainly isn't the worst T8 by quite a way.

Indeed it's bad, but I believe there are even worse than Panther II.

 

I also played with short 88 mm gun because long version of it is just usless on this vehicle...

 

With Panther II you can't fight at close range or "snipe" from the back either...

 

Armour sucks, mobility is also not impressive...

I think most people say the e50 is competitive, unlike the panther 2. I thought the e50 was a big upgrade, quite enjoyable, but I did play it a LONG time ago. it's deffo better than the e50m tier for tier, but you can make the e50m work too

The AMX 65T wears a sign saying 'skip me', the Panther II tricks you into playing it so is actually more evil.

Well, I won't pretend that I play it often, but this is my Panther II. I don't quite understand, but I recently discovered that pretty much all of my mediums with reasonable WR do NOT have higher average damage than their own HP. This is clearly another one.


I have a track record of making some very unpopular tanks work, while not achieving in many popular ones. :unsure:

The L/71 is a fairly bad gun to play it with from my own experience, the 2.7 second aimtime just kills it.

So I'm happy i managed to unlock the L/100 last night which should aim a lot faster.

After 14 battles in it I'm at 942 DPG, hopefully this'll go up.

Just recently did the grind. Tank can only be played as support or sniping from the back to be honest. 

 

Late game you can use HP  to machine gun down alone tanks.

sure, Panther II are bad...

but dont worry, when you get the complete E50, I bet you will realize all the pains you suffered before are totally worth it.
