Chrysler K
Defender
T26E5
Skorpion k
Strv s1
B2

These tanks are under powered and need a huge buff *sarcasim*

I think the USA skorpion and the panther 8.8 need some love mainly the panther prob one of the most useless prems atm

 

Pz IV S. Nerfed from what it was at a tier 5 tech tree tank. But hey, it's got a chain link fence strapped to the side so extra armor!!!

IS-6 is OP, go trade in it. LOL. IS-6's golden ammo cannot even penetrate the lower plate of defender.

I'm not sure what is worse.  The pen on the KV5, IS6, and WZ111, or the thought of trading them in at half value.  Both feel like a kick to the nether regions.

Poor KV5 used to back into a fight with it to hide its one bad weak area cancer lump and own. Now it cant pen jack without Prem and then its questionable even fully aimed at weak spots on tier IX and X. It would still play in a match with a small pen buff. Miss the ole girl as she sits in my other garage rusting away.

Sell them they can sit in your store an be retrieved for 10% over sold price anytime you want. Dont let WG rip you off at half Gold trade in.

Newsflash - It's not a heavy tank, you are not supposed to rely on its armor.

 

That's kind of the problem with permanent bottom tier (and gold spam). Armor becomes all or nothing. You're either a Type 5 that bounces gold with your weak spots or you're a Scorpion with literally 1mm of armor. Average armor becomes equivalent to nonexistent armor while punishing the player with inferior dpm, dispersion, speed, armor profile, and other important characteristics.

Sell them for creds, or trade them in for other tanks?  If you trade them in, are you able to buy back at the 10% over?

You can't get them back from a trade in because you have a new tank now.

So there's no point in selling them for creds unless you need the creds or garage space.

not really.

unless you really really hate the vehicle and want it out of your garage right away.

but even then that's stupid because you can win free gold for just owning it.

I disagree.  If I am playing my Caern, 110, IS3, etc. and I get in a T10 game, theres only 3 T10s.  I may not play my heavy aggressively as I would if I were top tier, but I certainly will use my armor effectively and play to win.  My point was that while the T54 Mod1 has goo armor for a T8 Med, you cant expect it to be reliable even when top tier.  You have to adjust your play, not just whine about how unfair it is.  And it certainly is not worthless.

None of those tanks have average armor. A more accurate example would be the AC46 or TigerP.
