It can be for any reason, whether is its speed, crap gun, poor armor, low pen, snail speed, OP, premium, TT, too expensive, too cheap, even if it's fugly af. Heck anything goes, lol.

 

I have to say I can't wait to sell Mauschen...I have some grinding to do to unlock Maus, but I'm not sure if I'm gonna play it at all, except for that one game to register it as owned for STE. This tank is everything I don't like, it's huge, snail drools faster than this pile moving, you're never there on time, arty really loves you in this one...Armored you say? Yes, it's heavy af and can bounce a shot or two, but it's so slow that even Type 5 can do death circle around it.

 

Name yours if you feel like it...this is about naming and shaming...tanks.

The 13. (Tiger) Kompanie, of Panzer Regiment Großdeutschland, reported on the performance of the 88 mm KwK 36 L/56, when their Tigers engaged the T-34: "First round hits were usually achieved at ranges between 800 to 1,000 meters. At these ranges, the Panzer Granate (they are referring to the PzGr. 39 APCBC ammunition) absolutely penetrated through the frontal armor, and usually still destroyed the engine at the rear of the T-34 tank. In 80 percent of the cases, shots from the same range hitting the side of the hull toward the rear of the tank resulted in the fuel tanks exploding. Even at ranges of 1,500 meters and longer, during favorable weather, it is possible to succeed in penetrating the T-34 with minimal expenditure of ammunition" (JENTZ, Thomas L.; Germany's TIGER Tanks - Tiger I and II: Combat Tactics; op. cit.).

Not so much a specific tank, but pretty much the entirety of the British line (except the mediums) has proven very tedious for me.

Nearly every russian tank. T-34-85, SU-85B and KV-85 are my highest there. I can't really describe it, but the feeling of these tanks is terrible and I have nearly no fun playing them and because of that, I am not good with them.

Word up, one has to ask what was the reason for Brits to put such a crap engines in tanks.

That was my first tier X unlocked, I looked forward to it, but same as you couldn't play it at that time. That tank has high skill ceiling and I still have it in garage, not selling it, but hardly ever play it, except during Ranked Battles couple of times. I will get back to it one day to see if I can do better.

I can't help but feel that the owner is compentasting for a lack of ability by using this tank.

St Emil was lack of speed, i used to play it as a fragile T95 camping as a beginner. Tortoise is due to the cupola and cupola alone, it's so huge, players has no problem at 400-500+, i know hide the cupola but it's not always that simple. I loved the AT-15 but hate the Tortoise with a passion.

The Grant, or the Lee.

 

When I first started the game this Tier IV grind almost killed me, having no free EXP to skip packages.  Heaven only knows what it must be like these days when Tier IV tanks almost exclusively see V's and VI's.

Ohhh, the joy of ram/shoot combo that Vivienne delivers. :teethhappy:

 

I get you, but it's a very popular tank, many peeps drive it. I have it myself and to be honest it's a way to do some stress-free tanking. Ability? Not sure, yes tank is super OP when top tier, but it can also see tier VII (Tigers and T29's) so for them it's nothing but a juicy snack.

I have to admit that I rarely see these on the field lately. I see that other tank (Edelweiss?) quite often thou.

In terms of playing as, I believe the T-28 is the one that annoys me the most. A decent gun on a huge tank that even tier 3's delight in coming up against. I know I for one love seeing it as the tank opposing me.

I can imagine it is stress free tanking, which is probably some of the source of my hatred for it. Top tier? Just charge down what ever flank you want and watch shells bounce off of you left right and centre, then ram whoever happens to be in your path causing instant death at the cost of 2hp. It even pulls off similar against a lot of tanks in the tier above.

cursed tanks, where your win rate is battered by never ending terrible teams

 

Though to be fair, some of those, like the E25, Motherland and CDC reflect that i played them alot when I shouldn't have been poking my head above tier 4 frankly :)
