I feel extreme shame anytime I have to take the Lowe out of the garage.  It's not the tank, it's definitely me.  I've seen people that have great stats in it.  

I bought it back when I first started playing because my buddies told me I needed a tier 8 premium to make money in game.  I was the stereotype for a new player running around in something they didn't understand.  I'd like to apologize to anyone that ever got stuck with me on their team in that thing.

My problem is that even though I've improved in all aspects of my game play since then I still play the Lowe horribly.  I'm by no means an excellent player but I'm a lot better than when I started.  I do better in faster tanks, if only because they give me a little more time to analyze what is going on in the game and still allow me to get to where I'm needed.


What tank do you have in the garage that you are significantly worse at than others you regularly play?

I'm not very good at all in the SP yet. While I'm running the M6, M18 and other tanks at the 59%-60% level, I'm running the SP...considerably lower than that. :/

No M4 or Pz4 can one-shot a Crusader with any gold round.  HEAT does a maximum damage of 437.5 points.  If they're one-shotting you, they're using HE, or else you're getting very, very unlucky with ammo-racks.

Super bad at Grille especially - it is supposed to be really good, but I just can't get the knack of it.

Matilda Black Prince.

My cousin plays it like a pro and does very well in it but I do horrible in it. I just can't get the hang of it and the very slow speed is a huge factor as well.

Can't quite figure out the ELC.  I'm getting better in it, but still.

I'm horrid in the M4 I'm sorry to say. I'm more at ease in the Jumbo.

I just am too embarrassed to take an arty out, or to take out the t1... I can never play the t1 cunningham for some reason, same with the panzer 2, or any Russian tanks, except kv-5

I can be embrrased in any tank on any given day.

But seriously folks, there are 2 tanks that I really want to do better in, they have been tanks I've loved since I was a kid and being able to drive them was pretty much why I joined WoT
My M5 and my Sherman. I'm not really cut out for light tanks, I have the M5 which I'm terrible in, just as I was in the M3, and I have the Locust, which I'm OK in, but since I paid for that I'm keeping it. I think about selling the M5, especially since I'm not sure if I am even going to bother with the Chaffee, but I just can't let it go. It is close to being elited so maybe I'll just do that.

My M4  Sherman, was THE tank I wanted most of all. I'm not terrible with it, but not paticularly good either. It is definitely a hard luck tank as well, even when I do play well I don't get a lot of wins in it. But just like the M5, it will stay in my garage, along with it's 2 bigger brothers.

I'm awful with my M7 as well, it's close to being sold, but I keep saying I want to take one more crack at trying to play it.

My friend has a TOG, and everytime he plays it with me or another friend we always make Navy/submarine jokes. Needless to say he doesn't play it too often. :)

Must be HE then, because it happens quite frequently that I do get 1 shotted in it.

My ELC, I just suck in it. But you seem to be suffering from the same thing that I had a problem with my first 3k battles. I ran through the trees without spending enough time to really get to know the tanks and their style of play. Try to play the lowe like your t-29 and it may get better.

My M4A2E4, also known as the "beta Sherman". This thing brings practically nothing to the table.

It could well be.  People get so used to seeing 105 HE do non-penning damage around 100-120 that they forget it does have a pen of around 53, which is more than enough to pen many lights, mediums, TDs and even some HTs from the sides or rear, and do an average damage of 410.

Great fun to one-shot a Tier 5 medium with HE.
