The Tortoise.   At least for me.

 

38 games, 34%,  just over 1k average damage.  18% survival .. LOL    

 

I apologize in advance for being on the green team.  I honestly think that my 34% would trump anyone's 70+%   Seeing me on green is a loss.

 

 

Peace-

Boris


I’ve noticed a strong lack of Spare Parts. Is that intended?

No, it is not. This problem will solve itself with time. Many players have several dozens of vehicles in their Garages, so they don’t have enough Spare Parts for the entire vehicle fleet. But you will gradually collect enough Spare Parts to unlock new slots for purchased tanks in time.

Any of the British TDs and most of the Tier 8+ Chinese meds. The Brits depend on people covering them, and the Chinese depend on someone covering they’re reload and filling out the DPM

I also had difficulty with the Tortoise,  I found it was hard to get in position before you had been flanked.  And the weak spots on that tank...

I think the most difficult to carry with is the FV215b 183 though.  It has intimidation power, until it fires.  If you and 1 or 2 other tanks on your team are spotted, the 183 is targeted by pretty much everyone on red.  The Tortoise does not have that issue until most of your team has been taken out.  Or you are by yourself.

OMG, I hated that grind.  Guess what I used the 50% XP coupon for?  Darn right it was the Tort. I could not sell that thing fast enough.  No regrets.

I feel bad for Torts. I just ignore them until they bother to shoot me, and then I CoD them in a Defender

Anything new I have played since the update is difficult.  Specifically those have been the SP 1C and the Emil.

That’s one of those tanks that sucks at first and slowly gets better during the end of the grind. Do you have the top gun yet? It makes a big difference.

Try sidescraping and hull down while wiggling. The cupola is a ridiculously easy pen, but you can usually troll anything below tier X if you find a good spot.

Currently Grinding: T54E1, M103, WZ-120, Foch, T95

Then don't get spotted. It's pretty much one of the easiest tanks to drive. Point, click, 1300 alpha.

Those two have always been challenging, but very rewarding. My number 3 and 2 favorite tanks, respectively.

I found that tank very difficult as well. Did well in AT-15, Tort seemed to get spotted and penned immediately.

I had a lot of issues with the US T67 tank destroyer, when I really should have played it better.  My damage rate was decent enough at 2.05 with a pretty weak-assed average damage number, and my kill/death rate was 1.84, but I only ever managed a 45% win rate.  I sold the thing as soon  as I hit my 100 battle goal.  The Hellcat was not far behind in unsuccessful tanks. I’m currently working on adding the Comet to this list of fails.

T-28 protype.

Every game I ever played in it was over before I got to shoot anyone.

Gotta hang near the back of the line.  Have some serious cover to hide behind.  Swing round, take the shot, carry on.  It used to be glorious, now it's a bit of a turd.  Hide the cupola.  Run camo net.  Need the top gun to remotely compete.

My worst tank ever that I can recall was the UC 2-pdr and Alecto in the same line.  Ugh.

No kidding. 

The topic is "Most difficult to play solo and win."  The 183 is easy to play and deal damage, but needs the team more than the tortoise to win (in my opinion).

The T95 is no picnic. 

The Tortise at least, has a VERY good gun. 

 

I love my T95, but the T28 was a total dog. 


Yeah, I'm back. Let's not make a big deal about this.

Agreed any of the slow TDs. Tort/T95 lines.  I tried to play the Tort and some ATs early on as well, level them up and gave up because it just didn't pull weight unless the teams were good enough to provide enough time to get shells on targets or move into position.
