As the title says, what lines you grinded then you regretted them? 

 

For me, it was Type 5 heavy, because even after the buffs it received, it didn't change. But the only tank i enjoyed in that line was O Ni.

What about you? :)

None. I regret none of them. If we base it on the tier 10s I didn't buy, it would be Obj 268. That was my first tier 10 unlocked but I still haven't bought it. The grind was enjoyable though.

None I guess. I got so many that it doesn't bother me that I have some dust collectors in my garage. 

 

Maybe the least useful line might be JPE100, since I don't generally like non turreted TDs. But I'm fairly sure I'll find use for it when I get back into doing the personal missions at some point.

Not a single one.

 

Maybe I don't play the tanks anymore but grinding through the line and playing the tanks was a valuable lesson in itself. You learn the strengths and weaknesses of the tank/line and that makes you a better player.

 

If you are the type that learns from his mistakes

Honestly the only one I can say I "regret" is the Polish line. I basically Free XP'd to the 53TP, played it mostly in FL, played 6 Battles (fully upgraded) in randoms and had a blast, then sold the tank (I don't usually keep tanks after grinds except for IXs anyway) and don't really plan on playing 50TP/60TP. Comparably, most other lines have paid off. A close second would be French heavies, which I grinded to the AMX 50 100 Just to unlock the 100mm for my AMX 30 (at the time I did not have my overabundance of Free XP) so I didn't have to get it there. However, with 279(e) missions, I might Free XP To the AMX M4 51 And so the grind might still pay off in the end.

None so far. Couple of stinkers along the way, but necessary to progress.

Atm... The M46 Patton. That tier 9 is the 2nd to last tier 9 I need to elite. So it's a forced enjoyment. But I've never felt so useless in anything stock before. 8 sec reload with 240 alpha and 190 pen at tier 9. 

 

But of lines I've done. 705 and the AMX M4 line. AMX 65t is still the worst HT I've played. The pre-buff French TD line, and the Chinese lights also come to mind.

Oh damn you're right. I've literally grinded up to the M53/M55, BC 155 58, Free XP'd to the SU-14-2 All for bloody arty missions! :deer:

 

(Luckily I had the Hummel researched for noob days for an Excal missions with Honours and otherwise AFAIK Don't need to grind 'em, nor the British)

I pretty much regret grinding all the new lines from the last 1-2 years i grinded because all the tanks turned out boring/bad. So that would be, above all, 705. Next i suppose swedish mediums, polish heavy, wheelchairs.

 

705 was just the most annoying/boring tank to play ever - it isnt that it is bad, but it just requires way too passive gameplay to perform - i simply am not patient enough to sit sidescraping at a corner for 5 minutes. 705A is simply the same, but at T10 and considering T10 itself is the most boring/annoying gameplay experience of all time, then thats also a terrible tank to try to have "fun" in.

 

Swedish mediums - i was stupid enough to pregrind XP on LEO before the test server with the meds came out, where i learnt that the T9 is simply a bad tank (initially i wanted to get that one because it looked good visually) and obviously T10 is T10 which i dont play... so i ended up "having to" get the T8 which is practically just another paper medium that isnt interesting at all + i get triggered by its gun.

 

Polish heavies - I guess the T8 and T9 were fine tanks, so i stopped at the T9, but realistically nothing special about them in the end, so was basically a waste.

 

Wheelchairs - good thing i stopped at the T7 because i knew the T8 is just awful and i didnt end up enjoying the wheeled gameplay anyway. Had i grinded past the T7 i would have considered it a massive waste of time/free xp in the end. Like this it was just a small waste of time.

 

I guess a special mention could go to chinese lights - after WG completely rekt the T7 light i thought id grind the T8 because it seemed like that one wouldnt suck complete [edited]like the T7 does after the nerfs, but alas it does suck complete [edited]. Should have just kept the T7 and let dust settle on it forever.

I guess the most dumb grinds were arty, but I completed them and became senior technical engineer last Christmas :medal:

 

However, I didn't regret grinding any line as it learns you the mechanics, weaknesses and strengths of every tank line. I do remember starting the Chinese line as one of the first ones. That was a rough learning curve with 0 gun depression.

No regrets, only many many worthless tanks at the end of a long grind. 

However I did quit some lines mid grind.
Japanese HTs, T57 line, 268 line, STRV line, E4 line, Badger line, Chinese TDs, GW arty line (it was early in my career, ok).

I guess it's fairly obvious I hate slow tanks and TDs. I want action and versatility in my battles.

705a and the 30b. Both tanks don't work for me and I can't seem to make them work.
