My choice is that abysmally slow TOG 2. Gift tank, crewed it up. First battle and game was over before I even saw one of the enemy. Sold it!!

There is a solid amount of people who appreciate and even endorse the tog 2.

It was a meme tank 6 years ago and WG have changed nothing since. I suspect most players Have it in their garage but never play it.

Hi! I'm both a KV-2 and TOG 2* driver.

 

The trick to appreciating the TOG 2* is to make a 2 or 3 man platoon with it. Despite its low speed, lack of armour, and limited alpha damage, it still packs 1560 hp, 171mm pen at tier 6 (with pref MM) and very good dispersion, rate of fire, and gun depression. In platoons, you are the equivalent of an (unarmoured) Maus and a half, potentially having more hp than the rest of your team combined. This doesn't make it a good tank - but it makes it potentially useful, if the platoon plays its cards right! Plus you can literally block entire sections of the map, by merit of parking your long-butt hulls from obstacle to obstacle. Not to mention the memes in battle chat.

 

And as a KV-2 driver, you can easily do your full 910 alpha with HE, even if it has received quite some punishment already. Win win!

Last time i saw a 3 man tog 2 platoon against a 3 man kv2 platoon things went "rated m for mature" pretty quickly.

Tossed, but not sunk! Britannia rule the waves!

 

To stay on topic, one tank I'd put in 101 would be the EBR 105. Not because it's bad - it's not. I just hate the little buggers. The lower-tiered wheelies are, comparatively, much more tolerable.

Room 101 is a place where you dispose of things that annoy you. I have just placed the word " Dude " in room 101.

It's  from the George Orwells 1984, room 101 was where you went to be punished by facing your inner fear!

The only reason why WG put the TOG II into the game was to make money... there is absolutely no other reason why it's in the game.

 

It's just one of those tanks you forgot about somwhere in your garage. 

 

It doesn't even improve after pimping it with 4 - 5 maxed crew skills + improved gear.

I would put the tier 5 ELC bis in there.

 

WG nerfed it so much,

well, it was actually crippled.

 

I never understood why the developers have so much hate against the french tanks.

Just put a french flag on object 279, that will teach them a lesson.

The biggest disaster of all times has to be the Kanonenjagdpanzer with the 90 mm gun.

 

I played it two times last month, and it is uttely utterly useless.

 

Infact it was so bad that WG gave us the Kanonenjagdpanzer 105 as compensation for free.

 

The 90mm version can't pen s****.

 

Even the CG Guncarrier looks good compared to it.

How? They practically gave them away when they got introduced into WoT. Just a few missions and voila! And again with the Tankrewards; significantly more "work" but still free. Besides that not many people will actually buy this thing, unless the ungainliness appeals to them.

 

And to be frank the TOG has some merit. Maybe not as a tank itself, it is indeed a big xp pinata if driven by the inexperienced. However, to consistently do well in this tank you need to think on how the battle will likely go *before* the battle starts, which is something that will benefit a great many players in the game.
