I found the SAu40 to be absolutely horrendous.

CGC is really bad.


A lot of people are lucky enough not to encounter it.

I was looking forward to it.

Spend some time grinding my Churchill, unlocked it.

Oh boy, I was disappointed.

DW2 and Sau40.

Both have the same firepower as pretty much all their peers, but they have less armor and mobility as well, just for giggles.

The poll should be Least liked tank in the game, rather than worst tank in the game. Not all tanks suit everyone, but some may like what's know commonly as a "bad tank".

I do well enough with the M3 Lee, yet never grew to like the Hetzer.

I love my M6, but never grew to like the T29.

I actually enjoyed the B1, and treated it like my Tog, and reverse side-scraped anywhere I could.

I enjoy my JagPzIV and have kept it since getting the JagPanther.

I never cared that much for the T18.

For me, it comes down to admitting some tanks that may be really good just don't suit me. The Hetzer tops that list.

To add: The DW2 is nowhere near the worst tank, many play it totally wrong (I see many driving in the open expecting it to be invincible because "its a heavy", or taking tier 5's head on because "its a heavy"). It's a support tank with decent-but-not-great 50mm armor all around, which works well enough when angled. Not a bad tank in my opinion.

TBH the French TD line isn't very good until tier 7.
The SAu40 is pretty awful at Tier IV, but the S35 CA is solid at Tier V. Especially if you go out of your way to get that Tier VII master-blaster of a cannon on it.

Yeah, the S35 CA can hit, but it has bad camo and a bad profile with bad armour and the mobility is not great either.
From tier 2 to 6 I'd say that the S35 is the best one, but it really isn't all that good.

There is no way the M3 Lee is worse than the B1. The Lee at least has a gun that can penetrate other tier 4s. The only thing going for the B1 is its sidescraping (that's being pretty generous) and it has a small turret (doesn't really matter when your side is the size of a barn).

I am very afraid of the A-43 grind that I will start tomorrow. On paper, that tank seems to be the worst tier6 in existance, making even ARL39 and JP4 look great. And the T25/2 was a very painful grind for me as well, though I think that is mostly due to the excellent tanks before it. Honorary mention of the Pz. III/IV, which I hated with a passion, but a lot of people I know do great in it so it cannot be that bad.
Lee is not a bad tank if the driver is smart. Terrible tank if the driver is stupid though, and looking at most of the players in this game I guess it will 'win' this poll.

A lot of the rating is subjective, based on preferred playstyle.  If you play the Panther as a brawler, you will be a smoking wreck very soon.  If you snipe, it is useful.  Same with the M3 Lee, if you play it like a T40, it's OK.  T1 Cunningham and M7 are the training wheels sidewalk bike version of a tank, but you can have a lot of fun with them.  It's hard to build stats with them, but the humbling effect of dying early in every game with 30 XP is good for your soul.

ARL V39 and the Lorraine shouldn't be on this list. That are good tanks, maybe played wrong by a lot of people, but that is not the tanks fault. Same IMHO for the M3 Lee. The T7 Combar Car should be added on that list. That POS can't even kill a T1.... Maybe put the T21 on the list as well, not because it is a very bad tank, but it gets scouting MM while it isnt a scout.

I agree with you about the Lee. I went and re-bought it during the US medium event recently and have done well with it.

About the T7... It's great in certain situations, and struggles in others. It has amazing burst damage ability against poorly armored enemies (all tier 1's, and tier 2's with the exception of the T18, H35, PZ38H, PzII, D1, and the front of the M2 Light). Barring facing those enemies, it shreds others and very quickly. I've killed tetrachs before they get a second shot off, and others before they can even turn their turret.

The T7 is the very definition of situational, being amazing at certain things (close range ambushing), and poor at others (fighting at range or against well armored enemies).

The ARL does deserve to be on that list. Its only strong points are its radio, decent guns, and slightly higher than average hp.

Personally I dont agree with M3.. Sure its not something like hetzer that will just derp through everyone but as long as you will play it as td and not medium/heavy you are fine. That gun is pretty decent in T4 and mobility is not bad either.
Personally after recent experience I would put Churchill VII on the list.. That tank is just plain crap...
No speed... you will be late almost all the time for a fight everywhere except for city map..no gun depression... gun is a crap in T6... and 14500xp for + 5 pen and dmg like wtf? and armor is nothing special.. it is suppose to have 150mm turret and hull but anyone will penetrate me just fine and you cant even angle it because ppl will just shoot that huge tracks protection....
From the list above I would vote for B1 which I played... good healthpool and traverse speed is the only thing that tank have... otherwise weak armor, bad speed and that gun... you need gold ammo to have even the slightest chance to penetrate something like hetzer..and it has no dmg...

For a TD, the gun is the most important. The ARL gun is good for T6 (it is a T8 gun). It does good damage and has good penetration. If you compare it to a JagdPZ IV, which is a nice TD with a CRAP gun, I prefer 10 times more the ARL. Lets compare those 2: speedlimit almost same, armor, ARL 60. JPZ 80 (both crap), hitpoint almost same. Camo didnt find it, but I presume the JPZ is better. Now the important part, the topgun. ARL penetration 212, JPZ 132. Damage ARL: 240. JPZ 220, accuracy ARL 0.36, JPZ 0,35. As you can see, the stats are  almost the same, except for the penetration. And that is why the JPZ is crap and the ARL not. The JPZ cant penetrate heavies at the front, the ARL can. That is why the ARL shouldnt be on this list and the JPZ should....

It is a damn shame people don't know how to play the M3 Lee.  You don't peek a boom, you don't maneuver, you just out DPM *anything* you are facing.  Treat every encounter as your last and fire fire fire.  If you live, move on to the next opponent and repeat.

The M3 Lee isn't one of the options.  :sceptic:

AMX-40 is a pretty bad tank, I have it, and had the AMX-38 (previous tank to AMX-40) and still, I think that the DAMN AMX-38 IS BETTER THAN THE DAMN AMX-40, HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE!!!!!!
