Some tanks just seem impossible to win with.

My thoughts :
-M3 Lee
-VK3001
-Crusader

I've only had the Cromwell for 3 battles but it's trending badly. 0 for 3

Your votes for fail magnets?

None, I have over 50% win rate in every tank I've ever tried.

VK3002DB and KV-13 are way too under gunned even for their tier, I assume the T-43 is the same issue. M26 if you don't use premium rounds when they are necessary, which is often. And for some reason my Pershing attracts only the really, really bad teammates. Panther is 50/50 depending on MM placement as well as taking advantage of very ideal conditions, otherwise the L/100 is just a feather duster to the enemy's nose with trollish accuracy even at maximum bloom.

Umm... Both VK3001s are awesome... As with Crusader and Cromwell. :Smile-hiding:

Tiger is a fail magnet because its real-life capabilities have been exaggerated in history classes to levels even greater than the multitude of buffs from historical performance it has in game. :Smile_trollface-3:

Hmm, I would say my Lorraine 40t. Hard to carry a team if they don't know how a French tank operates.

AMX 13 75 to bat chat. So very few people know how to use an autoloader effectively.

I'll partially agree with the Crusader; it's too slow to be a good LT (especially at Tier V) and too lightly armed and armored to be a decent support tank.

The M3 is fail only when the player tries to drive it like a turreted tank. It isn't! Play it like a tall TD and you'll be fine. One trick I like in it that's about impossible in any other tank is to hide on a right-hand corner of a building, exposing only the sponson gun. Kind of a hull-down turned on it's side.

For me there's 2

My is-8 when I had it I don't know how but I only got a 40% winrate on it and I did decently in it.
my isu-152 I sucked with it while it was stock and have had a few times where teammates fail or I did bad (now I do much better) I have a 43% winrate and climbing as I get it back up.
