I'll try. Not counting arty as they run off a kinda different tiering system.

1) MS1
2) Hotchkiss(captured german)
3) Marder
4) Pz3
5) T1 Heavy(Weird I know but I think it might be more versatile than the new KV1)
6) VK3601
7) Amx13 90
8) KT
9) E75
10) IS7
t5, in my opinion, goes to either m4 sherman, definite t5 medium winner, or the churchill, due to extremely nice matchmaking and armor and rof.

I thought about giving it to either sherman or Pz4.  But in the end the heavies do have a lot more health and armor which can often allow them to swing a match their way by bullrushing the med drivers.  Still I have seen shermans utterly dominate too esp without the monster KV-2 tanks around to singlehandedly crush games.

Church is my most played tier 5 simply because of its awesome mm.

Here's what I think it is:
Tanks:
1. Ms1 for damage and defense
2. Pz 35T,by far ,I don't even see a competition
3. All of them are bad,but pz3a and M3 are best
4. B1or t28(only one that's strictly opinion and not based on stats)
5. BDR since 7.3 update
6. M6 or ARL 44 (hard to tell but that's what I think)
7.Tiger
8. and past I have no clue because update switched up Russian tree so much
TD's:
2. T18
3. FCMpak40
4. Hetzer or Su-85B
5. Stug 3
6 and up all Russian for true TD and American for medium-like or super-heavy play

this topic proves again that there is no best tank for it's tier. for everyone it's different.

I can't disagree with this!

For me, my favourite tanks are:
Tier 1
They all suck, never kept any or even ran them after elite.

Tier 2
M2 Light - fast & fun as well as being very capable of killing other tier 2 tanks.  This is actually the tank with my highest efficiency rating and that's with over 400 battles.

Tier 3
Marder II - great gun, great view range, really good traverse range for a turretless TD.
SU-26 - the most fun SPG in the game
T-127 - the best light at tier 3 IMO.

Tier 4
M5 Stuart - great passive scout, best view range of the tier 4 lights.
T-28 - impressive RoF with the ZiS-4 and really good mobility, can climb hills like you wouldn't believe.  Great medium tank despite having absolutely no armour (I can't remember EVER bouncing a shot).

Tier 5 (bear in mind that I like scouts)
T-50-2 - The fast & the furious
VK 2801 - derping arty to death since this was introduced.
Chaffee - sight range fantastic, gun is RoFilicious
SU-85 - mount the 107 and kill stuff, also makes good credits with low costs.
M4 Sherman - no outstanding features, just a good all round medium for its tier

Tier 6
M18 Hellcat - my favourite tank, very capable.
GW Panther - the 2nd most fun arty after the SU-26.  Great gun traverse, good mobility, reasonable hitting power.

Tier 7
AMX 13 90 - the light tank that likes to kill same tier heavies and even higher tier heavies
T29 - my pick of the tier 7 heavies
Jagdpanther - my pick of the tier 7 TDs
M40/M43 - Not quite as good a RoF as the Object 212, but much better mobility.
T20 - fast and fun, the other tier 7 mediums are good, but this is my pick.

Tier 8
Too many to list, I like a LOT of tier 8 tanks.  I have ALL the mediums.  The premiums make HUGE credits.
For heavies I think the T32 is a bit under gunned, but the Tiger II is a great tank and so is the IS-3.
The Arty are end-tier and all 3 are used in clan wars to great effect.
For TDs the ISU is a bit soft, but the gun . . .

Tier 9
The mediums & TDs are all good, the heavies suffer from being not quite the best, though the E-75 is real good.

Tier 10
T110E5 - RoF, Pen & mobility are great, just accept that the side & rear armour are not good and use this tank to kill stuff.

I am currently grinding the soviet T 44.  With only the suspension updated, it is already quite impressive.
My most favorite tank to date is the KV 13 (tier 7), maxed out with the 122mm cannon.... its a very deadly 'close in' tank.  Nice armor, Nice gun, very good speed.

the tank the others use less....mostly the spg and scout light high end maybe ? I sometimes scout with the medium as 'fast', stay far away normally with everything, except sometimes or mostly on '180' or for other specific reasons, blitz past or get bushwacked at melee and basically my info is tanks # 1-3 (light->heavy) also level, heavy beats med, beats light, mostly, spg has a hard tmie backwards mostly, but i tend to overuse overview for aiming at far away, plus close aim not so good on spg compared to others, but td does not have the dps either

so if you wanna win lots, and not see many scouts that are light, i did that a few times and got a big win with lots of points, is fun to use a new tier sometimes too, plus g4 commandant tacticum former of muslandia fame too, approximately, noted the ussr had really awesome tanks
other people were funding jets and nukes mostly, then they did nukes and tanks for no obvious reason and were secretive too

i tried their level 2, and was fun a bit true, while noting the xp in the cash tanks breaks leveling too
discuss it here , or perhaps new hacks too ? not at all while noting, the hackers don't say it , typically too, was in the media already, and bugs could be fixed but not due to....

You can't simply compare like this.

Arties are usually better than the same tier tank, for instance a Hummel is miles and miles more powerful in a battle than a Pz IV. Same thing goes for a tier 5 light.

Tier 2
Pz38h735 is the best tier 2. dont try and convince me otherwise, because it is

Tier 3
im really not a fan of any tier 3's, i guess my favorite is thepz S35 739 (f), but by no means is that the best

Tier 4
hetzer or T82

Tier 5
before the last patch, the KV was obviously the best, now though, i think the chaffee

tier 6
i really liked the KV-1S. alot. 2nd place goes to the 3601 with konish

tier 7
the T29 is probably the best here, 2nd place is the tiger P tho. the worst tier 7 IMO is the tiger H. EDIT: of course the amx 13 90....

tier 8
tier 8 is the most balanced tier and i like every single tier 8 ive had. VK 4502 ausf A, T32, IS3, panther 2, pershing, are all a blast. EDIT: Lorraine

tier 9
i really like the IS8 and E75 for tier 9. before the IS4 moved to tier 10, id say that it was the best, but now the IS8 and E75 are my fav's. i havent played the ST-1 yet so im not so sure about it

tier 10
T110's are the best... at least server statistically

Tier 1 -  Doesn't really matter but I guess MS-1
Tier 2 - 38h
Tier 3 - Marder or SU-76
Tier 4 - SU-85b that gun man
Tier 5 - SU-85 the 107 is amazing
Tier 6 - Probably the M18 when played like a tank and not a bumper car
Tier 7 - T29 no surprise there
Tier 8 - There all good take your pick
Tier 9 - E75
Tier 10 -  Again there all good take your pick

And for SPG

Tier 2 - Bison hits like a truck at that tier
Tier 3 - SU-26 enough said
Tier 4 - While I enjoyed the SU-5 more I would probably say the Grille is best
Tier 5 - There all pretty similar take your pick
Tier 6 - GW Panther is just a barrel of fun
Tier 7/ 8 - Haven't really played or observed them enough to comment.

If I could only keep one tank for each tier I'd keep these.  For me "Best" means most fun.

1.  T1 Cunningham
2.  PzII
3.  PzIIIA
4.  PzIII
5.  PzIV
6.  E8
7.  IS
8.  T34
9.  Patton or T30  I'd have to flip a coin.  Love em both.
10. M110

Tier 1. Ft-17, love the 13.2 millimeter
Tier 2. D1, 13.2 millimeter gun
Tier 3. Panzer Somau 35, like the way it looks
Tier 4. T-28, great speed, damage, and reload rate
I can't comment after this since my computer keeps on screwing up when I try to play after the 7.3 update came out.

I think you mistaken most of those "hipster tanks" you say are great tanks, most of the Russian's IS tanks have huge weak spots

German tanks have larger weakspots. Lower glacis on them is like, 30%-40% bigger.
