The other day I was watching Quickybaby's top 10 TD's and I noticed the British line has a very high winrate.

 

 

 

So why not play them right?

But will they be fun? Would you like to grind them?

So I went to https://wot-life.com/eu/serverstats/ sorted them by games played and sure enough the E25 came out on top.

But you'll notice some of these tanks are had by a lot of players, others are more rare. So what tank is more fun? The one owned by 100.000 players and played 200 times, or the one owned by 1.000 players and played 100 times?

But simply dividing the games played by the number of owners threw some weird tanks on top: 

  1. KV-4 KTTS399 owners
  2. SU-76I4.436 owners
  3. ISU-1304.113 owners
  4. Rheinmetall Skorpion34.607 owners
  5. Kanonenjagdpanzer28.299 owners

Clearly this was favoring the rare tanks too much. After throwing them out, this is the list we got.

 

 

    tier players games
1 E 25 7 621765 605
2 Rhm.-Borsig Waffenträger 8 855914 452
3 FV215b (183) 10 299690 430
4 Waffenträger auf E 100 10 274873 416
5 SU-122-44 7 351417 413
6 Jagdpanzer E 100 10 504367 391
7 ISU-152 8 928125 374
8 Grille 15 10 501376 363
9 Object 704 9 638566 344
10 T30 9 669900 335

 

You notice how the ISU-152 beats the Grille 15 with 11 more games played, but with almost twice the vehicles in game. So how about dividing the games played by the square root of the number of owners? That starts to make a bit of sense and this is the result

  SU-76I 3 4436 190 285,27
  KV-4 KTTS 8 399 56 280,35
1 Rheinmetall Skorpion 8 34607 163 87,62
2 Waffenträger auf E 100 10 274873 416 79,35
3 Object 263 10 112068 265 79,16
4 FV215b (183) 10 299690 430 78,55
5 E 25 7 621765 605 76,73
6 WZ-111G FT 9 54057 177 76,13
7 AMX 50 Foch (155) 10 187537 329 75,97
8 SU-122-44 7 351417 413 69,67
9 Kanonenjagdpanzer 8 28299 117 69,55
10 FV4005 Stage II 10 222752 298 63,14

 

I'll spare you the full list but to give you an idea at the bottom we find the StuG IV at place 107 with 38 games played and 1.324k owners. Only slightly less popular than the M10 RBFM with 31 games played and 704k owners.

So how do the British TDs do in this fun list?

91 AT 2 5 977575 73 7,38
99 Excalibur 6 134127 21 5,73

 

My conclusion is, the Brittish AT line sort of grows on you. The higher up you go in the line, the less owners but the more games played.

What do you think?

This seals the deal. I must have the KV-4 KTTS! It ranks second on your fun! ranking list.

 

But your conclusion is likely not far form the truth. British AT line is pretty honest in what you get. A slow frontally armored TD with a pew pew gun. For the next 5 tiers. So its playstyle better grows on you, lest you will be driven insane.

So by the end of that grind only the true believers remain & they have mastered the playstyle because the line is so consistent. And you get rewarded by a toptier TD that has no cupola.:great:

You get rewarded by a tank with still no mobility, armour that doesn't work and DPM in game dominated by alpha. When you could have a 268v4 that has better armour better alpha and miles better mobility, it's at least one tier better than the Badger.
