For me It's the A-26B.  I find it inconsistent to start with but when it's lower Tier in a battle, it's just about hopeless.

 

What's yours?

YP-29. Trash when top tier, Somehow even WORSE when bottom tier. Ditto for F11C-2.


An average player with an average goal: greatness, someday. Today, mediocrity will have to suffice. But no matter, I will always play to the best of my ability, and I will always strive to make the best of my ability just that little bit stronger and better.

Except for the AR 80 and the 109 B, I think they all suffer when they are bottom tier.  The AR-65 and 68 are not among the worst when low tier, either.

 

For me, it's the TSH 2.  That former tier 2 monster was nerfed far too much.  There are some other planes who take forever to kill a plane, but the TSH 2 I set at the worst.

I couldn't disagree about the TSh-2 being nerfed too much.  It went from a fun plane to an absolute dog.  I will probably never fly it again.

They created a ground attack plane " the TSH- 2 " and forgot to give it any bombs. ( are you kidding me ? ).

It can only take out light targets with it's guns, but without any bombs it's useless on heavy targets.

It used to be swell at killing planes, but not now.

True that, makes no sense.  Back in the day, the TSH 2 didn't have bombs, but it could do excellent damage to GTs and its turret gunner was to be avoided.  It was actually fun and it taught a pilot to do more than just fly in a straight line to a GT.  You needed to strategize a little, learn how to hit the brakes and tilt a wing up to cause a collision, learn when you could actually attack a plane and how long to, and where to go when GT hunting.

The F4F is the worst I've been playing recently. Bottom tier on Cold Peak can be rough. It takes awhile to get anywhere and if you run into one of its many bad matchups, you'll get sent straight back where you came from. I've enjoyed the challenge, but any time I click "battle" in this plane I know it's going to be an uphill one.

Wut?  Those are both good planes which I enjoy flying.

i hate the YP-29 with a burning passion. F11C-2's okay though, it just doesn't uptier well. Also, both have lackluster firepower and as a result, get most of their kills stolen by planes with higher firepower.

Opposed to Tier 6 planes it's pretty meh

Actually this plane is all about extremes.
Amongs other T5's it feels as an OP T4, but i haven't seen any same Tier battle since 1.x, so this point doens't matter.
Amongst T4's it feels a bit OP, because it can outturn everything and most people are playing T'n'b in T4.
Amongst T6's it feels as if you brought a bicycle to a motorrace.

Anything slow is going to be a PitA when downtiered.  Maqor mentions the issue above, takes forever to get to the fight, and then instaBLAP once you get there.  Spend the entire battle flying instead of fighting.  A lot of the Freemiums don't do well when downtier either, for reasons of speed and/or firepower.

Yeah, I get that. Agree with all of it.  Just gotta fly the plane like it wants to be flown, which sometimes is staying to defend a sector if you know it will be tomorrow before you get to another one on a T6 map.  Annnnnnd part of the fun is my AMAZING cool paint job.

I agree about the A-26B. I was so excited about this dog until I actually flew it. But pretty much any plane with me in it is bad.   :(

Ju-87 or 88P. Slow, rear guns are weak. No bombs. Big guns are hard to hit planes with now.

The Junkers Ju 87 G Stuka is worst plane at tier 5. With:

1. Low airspeed.
2. Ineffective in maneuvering combat.

3. Gunner is a joke.

4. No bombs.

 

It's the fact that you don't get bombs that is the worst. Come on WG! Here's the first line on Wikipedia Ju 87:

"The Junkers Ju 87 or Stuka (from Sturzkampfflugzeug, "dive bomber") was a German dive bomber and ground-attack aircraft."

It's a dive bomber WG. A dive bomber! What in the world is it represented in WoWP without bombs.

 

Here's what Wikipedia says about the G variant:

"With the G variant, the ageing air-frame of the Ju 87 found new life as an anti-tank aircraft. This was the final operational version of the Stuka, and was deployed on the Eastern Front."

So with no tanks to attack in WoWP it should have been a no-brainer to give us bombs. What were the devs thinking with no bombs? It's total garbage.
