RNG can instantly turn anything into poop. Therefore, I'm hesitant to give too much praise to any tank. Some might stand out and be more likable than others, but even the best piles of metal in your garage have those days where every other shot fails to pen, etc.

That doesn't make them a bad tank.

My luck jinxes a lot. If it piles up lots of damage one game, calling it terrific results in no shots connected the next

If all tanks suffer from RNG, then you wouldn't consider it when assessing a tank. A good tank will best a terrible tank in more situations, regardless of the amount of RNG.

I don't think randomness factors in as much as you think anyhow.

I love the ones that need it most.

The armor and gun on my IS-7 is garbage. The only thing it can do well

for me is cap a base in supremacy, and only if I'm the only one within 5 miles of the cap

that is.

You don’t have a ke ni otsu.  That’s a great tank and has caused players to quit playing because of how overpowered it is!!!

It can completely change a game when it shows up in battle

"Have you heard the tale, of T-62A the wise? I thought not. It's not a story the blues would tell you. It's a -insert- legend. T-62A was a guntank of the Soviet line, so precise, and so quick, he could use the acc to influence the bullets to hit cupolas across the map. He had such a knowledge of the accuracy force that he could even exploit armor holes. The accuracy side of the force is a pathway to many abilities that some consider to be unnatural. He became so powerful... the only thing he was afraid of was losing his playerbase, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught Object 140 everything he knew, then Object 140 killed him in his sleep. It's ironic, he could snap shots, but not be relevant."

 

--> Do not say "my luck", I doubt your aim is so good as to max out your hit probability almost every single shot.

If you really want to see how good your aim is, T-62A is your choice.

 

Its also not a relevant tank so it doesn't matter if you bleed stats with it, no one will ever ask you to play it.

 

Be objective, do not blame mechanics, RNG is fair, and not biased. I am personally inclined to believe you can just aim better.

 

There are good tanks. As it turns out T-62A isn't one of them. You have to take risks. T-62A only has acc. And then there is Leopard which does same job better, then adds best flex in class.

Remember only tier 8/9/10 stats mean anything
