So I have a suite of tanks (54) of every sort except SPG (I hate SPG's - my hats off to guys who master them) in tiers 3 through 7 with a handful of Tier 8 premiums.  My win/loss ratio is very good with some and very bad with others.  Should I consider shedding tanks?  Is the Win/Loss figures for these tanks relevant given my overall win/loss is so low (46). (ie ranges from 63% after 84 battles through 48% after 405 battles down to 39% after 215 battles).  My Ace Tanker and High scores have been with LT and MT's which invariably have low Win/Loss rates but for these tanks, if I can get through the first 'encounter', I generally do well and last the distance (my overall survival rate however is only around 8% overall).

 

I'm doing particularly well with my Tier V Russian HT's at the moment thanks to the advice to use the DERP guns.  HEAT isn't working for me (probably still aiming at the wrong tanks/wrong parts) but HE still generates damage 99% of the time and I am almost averaging my tank HP's per battle.  It's the small things that keep me happy :)

 

Cheers

Keep tanks that you think you might come back to and play one day, or if you have spare garage slots but no room in your barracks (you can dump any old crew in a tank and just not play it).

I'm playing them all, some more than others though I have stopped playing the Tier 8 Pr4emiums until I get better at the game.

54's not many mate. I've got 217. I think Surly has more than me - 250 odd IIRC. I'd believe there are probably some with close to 300 too, though I don't know why you'd want that many.

 

Ezz otherwise nails it - just keep the ones you like.

I actually went on a bit of a clear-out the other day and dropped below 180.  August sales should replace some of those.

its not a bad idea to keep them all, it might in future get some rewards for them or become premium tank (same like T34 and some others ), but always keep the tier 7+ never sell them because buy them back will be very painful, but to be honest you cant play with all of them, atm i got 175 tanks i only can play with less than 12 of them, the only good point is when i got the tanks and wg give them as reward i get silver for it 


In the moment when I truly understand my enemy, understand him well enough to defeat him, then in that very moment I also love him.

more than 400 new vehicles are still planned for World of Tanks
