Like i just bought a Churchill, no one on my team has said anything about wallet warrior or etc yet, but the bad rep some premium tanks get is just sometimes lol.
I know why they get the rep.
But I got to say, people who say they are crap are outa their mind.

1st Battle in the Churchill
I got 1300 exp
Steel Wall
Mastery Badge 1

After 20 Battles i got the Ace tanker, not that it really means anything, its more so a goal for me to get it.


I actually like the premium tanks and don't despise them in anyway
Any other premium tank drivers think the premiums they drive are decent or at least up to par, despite what people say about them?

i have the kv-5 and the T14 because it was for charity, and i enjoy both tanks immensly. i can take on T34s 1v1 no prob, heck, most tanks below tier 9 i can take on 1v1 because i know where to aim and how to angle my tank. people say kv-5 is awful, f them, i have some of my best wins in the tank because i was the last alive and saved the game.

Churchill in the right hands, is a monster. Add a rammer for 1.97 reloads, and rush in and pound people to the ground. Only thing Churchills need to worry about are Hetzers and Marders, and with the upcoming nerfs to those, not those soon! Valentine is even better, rush in and mow people down. Last battle my entire team was dead, and I sat at the flag and killed 6 of them coming to cap it, and still had half health when it was over. It's a really fantastic tank. Lowe I really like, rigged up for sniping, sitting back and mowing people down, second line tank, don't rush in like a heavy. Gun has great dmg/pen, awesome trajectory.. It's fun. PAK40 is flat out OP.. 3.75 seconds reload, incredible dmg/pen for the tiers it gets dropped in with. Terrible engine, just park it and setup the killing field.

I'm thinking about grabbing a KV5 before they go, it's downright OP - no question.. Even knowing weakspots with my AC 1948, it takes me at least 5 hits to drop one when the bounces are factored in, and they can still drop me with their pewpew gun believe it or not. Hitting the droid, or the star-box it still takes forever to drop a KV5, and they tend to always ram me by then anyway.

So far, I like a lot of the prems.

The sad part is the "hater" players do not understand that premium tanks are one of the ways this game is free to play.

The only premium tank i currently own is my KV-5. Although the KV-5 has a bad rep for its R2D2 turret I don't feel underhanded against any other tier 8. In fact, my KV-5 has the most top guns of all the tanks I've owned.

An M4 Sherman with the 105 can also 2 shot a Churchill with a little luck and skill.

Thats not because the Sherman is necessarily OP, its just that the Churchill has some significant weakness that can be easily exploited.

One of which being awful, awful top armor.

I love my churchill, I got called a wallet warrior once, mainly because I was trying to tell a guy in a medium tank not to attack on an assault (defense side) game. One of the biggest reasons I love it is the MM it gets is so great compared to my KV-1.

I love my T14. I can beat churchhill. Get to your side, you die, and die painfully.  Granted you can fire 3 shots to my 2, but guess what i do more alpha damage with those 2 shots than a Churchhill can do with 3.

Don't think the beast is unkillable. I do it all the time with the T14.

Edit: Also have a small fleet of premiums. T2LT, M22 Locust, T14, JT88, IS6.  Love them all and have a blast with them.  People want to hate, let them, i got them to enjoy them and so i shall.

All the premiums seem ok in my opinion, its a no brainier they have a few flaws, but their fun to play in.

I've only been in tier 5-6 battles in it, and the lolmachinegun cannon were the reasons why i got it.

Also im very aware of its Armour lol, no need to tell me who can beat what, that wasnt the point of this topic

People hate them because of the low amount of players who buy them the second day after they get the game and have no ideal what to do with a tank yet.

I have the KV5, type 59, churchill, t14, t25, ram 2, they are great for crew training, and most of them crap credits. I have been called WW lots of times. In my churchill I love to solo the KV 1 they think they can kill me easy but most of them die trying.

Churchill, T14, and Valentine. I just love those tanks. I don't care if I get called names for playing these tanks, just the fun alone I have with these things is worth it. (Also they just want my precious churchill all for themselves!)

Did you know that Golden Type 59 gets TKed every game?

Because China's company that runs WoT decided to trick players by first announcing it as a prize for competition, then blatantly selling it so it is everywhere to make game s**tty looking like CrossFire(lots of golden guns in that one, looks like some crappy cheap gold-paint gangster posers).

And WZ...is just bad because Chinese company reported false stats to players to cause them to buy then stats were much worse than they should be...

The reason why the churchill is so fun to play is because its arguably (because its the only one I have played) the only tank that gets tiered correctly. its usually top tier, and by no means does than mean your going to win easily. and when it does get into teir 6 battles, your gun is very underpowerd, but your not useless.
