I always feel that people that make these threads havent played a stock conqueror. Perhaps they should.

Wat

 

The Ikv 103 was by far my favorite tier 5 tank I’ve ever had the pleasure of playing. It’s an absolute monster when top tier, and handles pretty well when bottom tier, except when it gets shot. It’s literally a faster less armored Hetzer at tier 5. The accuracy and shell velocity take some getting used to, but are still very much usable. Never had any issues with penetration except on bougars, KV-1s, Churchills, and AT-2s. 

 

Wish I could say the same about the tier 6 though. 

 

I couldn't get that thing to work, despite getting an *M* in the previous tree tank in only 7 times out. Couldn't get the shots to land anywhere near where I aimed, and I'd get 1-shot-killed by half the tanks I went up against. But I guess that's the good thing about this game. There's a tank for everyone!

I would argue that the A-44 is the worst grind in the game. The top gun is the 107mm with a horrific aim time and accuracy. So, you end up using the Tier 5 76mm, with no alpha. It's sucking my will to play the game.

M3 Lee was the one that almost made me quit playing. When I started the game, didn't have much free Exp, didn't have any multipliers to help get through it. Just grind after grind with no end in sight.

For me, the Sturer Emil was one of the most difficult grinds. I did not finish it.
It is truly Team aware and team dependent TD. I master it with help of teammates by them baiting tanks around large boulder so I could take them out.
After that game, I played one more and still had 30k or so to grind and just free experience rest to get to one of the best TD in the game. Sold the Emil. 

My recommendation is anybody going up this line is make sure have a min of 8 skill or perk crew configured as a long-range sniper to place in this tank. to help reduce the pain of the grind or enough free XP to bypass the tank altogether. If you have excellent Situational Awareness and map awareness. you will do well in this TD

At beginning Emil was tough, but ended up liking the tank. I think there are worse grinds.  AT7 stock has to be the worst.  Tier 5 gun in a tier 9 match.  It was pointless. I used to just drive straight at enemy to get spotting points, back when I had no free xp.   I no longer will play stock.  I make sure I have enough free xp to get first package.  The Frenchy 7s td and heavy line is pretty bad.  Couldn't wait to get out of those tanks.  Panther from beginning to end was awful, but worth it to get E50 (although have not played since nerf).  I liked the churchill line.  Almost sold Caernevon, but then bought 2nd or 3rd package and it unlocked top package.  Tank was suddenly awesome.  I am sure there are some other lines that are bad.  I will be getting O-I and my buddies quit the line when going to that after the OI Exp.

It gets the 32 Pounder as a stock gun now so it’s nowhere near as bad as when it came with the 20 Pounder.

Are u kidding?

12 degrees gun depression, mobility, camo and a fat derp gun (HEAT only if I am not mistaken).

 

A HEAT only derp gun where even the Premium HEAT has difficulty penetrating same tier tanks, much less higher tiered ones. The standard HEAT might be okay, but it fires at such a low velocity and at such high angles it bounces off even thin armor. And hitting weak spots is completely a matter of luck. 

 

The stupid thing is useless. Having all the other qualities doesnt help it if the gun just doesn’t work. The only thing that would make it even remotely useful would be to give it HE so it could actually derp things with its 10.5cm gun.

I sniped an elc going at full whack across the field on malinovka at about 430m. The lead I gave was so big the elc was nearly off my screen. Dont drive in a straight line kids.

Hello, 

 

The stock st emil is the worst grind. Elited, with a good crew trained for clutching faster, it's a monster.

 

You know why they invented free xp btw...

Worst grind in the game would be, to me, base package ST-1.

I loved the Churchill personally 

 

as did I fun fast gun, a little slow but can be a beast....torque is very poorly represented, the Churchill maybe slow but climbing hills at speed should not be an issue 

 

the stubborn emil is horrendous even when doing well in it.

My worst two candidates are the M3 Lee and T28 tank destroyer.  The T28 is bad at all levels.  All guns are bad, it is so slow that you can't get into battles, and with everyone shooting prammo these days, its armor is useless.  It took so many games to get past this piece of garbage because even when your team wins, you only get 700XP because you only saw one enemy and it was killed before you could even get the tank turned in its direction. Even if you managed to squeeze off a round, it would just bounce.  The T95 can at least deflect 3000 in damage, so you have a chance at causing some damage, if you can make it into the battle before the soldiers crawling alongside you do.

To me the M3 Lee was leagues better than the Ikv 103.

M3 Lee is arguably the best "TD" of that tier. It has absolutely amazing DPM, super accurate gun and if you're crafty enough you can almost hide the entire tank leaving only the cannon visible for people to shoot.

It requires a bit of planning and hoping your team scouts ahead. You can just stay back in a support role and absolutely murder anything that doesn't find cover in time.

It took me a bit of getting used to but in the end I'd get the highest amount of damage done in the game.

YES, the first tank prompt me to free xp about half of the grind.  The only redeeming feature of this vehicle is the next tank in line:bush:

The Russian Premium Churchill III is my cash cow. awesome tank.

Has trouble with penning with basic rounds but with a good crew and Rammer I dish out rounds so fast there is no point hiding to wait for the reloads.

Yeah it has it flaws but always make silver, the only question is how much
