I already know my opinion, but which tank do you think is the "best"? Best as in which tank would win in a 1 vs. 1 duel.

Best? Even if there is a best tier 10 tank, do you know how to play it?

Find what your strong points and weaknesses are. Your preferred role and such. That will define the best tier 10 tank.

umm 50b has 0 bounciness to it, get a 50b before commenting on that :P
T1 tank could pen it, usually dies in about 6 hits in a battle

IS-7. Combination of speed, armor, and fire power make it one of the easiest to use and most versatile tank in the game. T-110 would be #1, but it's armor is good but the is-7's has better all around.

IS-7 and T110 are both excellent, but i like each one for slightly different reasons. If I had to chose only one, I'd probably go with the IS-7.

I repeatedly see IS-7's and T110E5's have some awesome battles.

I picked the IS-7 and then saw that you were asking which one would win is a 1 v 1 duel.


Honestly, who cares about a 1 v 1 duel? Even if you did care about that there os no amswer. It depends on the map amd other conditions of the map.

I based my judgement on which I thought would be a greater asset to a 15 player team. I think it is fairly close between the is-7 t110 and is-4.

IS-4 or IS-7.
I dont care about server stats, the Soviet tier 10 heavies are the best mix of mobility, gun, and armor. The T110 has low armor everywhere but its main glacis and main turret front, and now has the DPM and mobility nerfs, which means more time showing off its weak spots. My IS-4 routinely wins hull-down shootouts due to the tumor.

The 50B is a big threat when loaded, but can't tank, and the German heavies have joke mobility and DPM, and easy weakspots.

I beat an IS-7 one on one with my E-50 last night. Lot of overconfident drivers out there. Their numbers ruin the stats. That said I still think the 7 is better then the 110 but just barely. The other tanks are more situational and do shine but those two are the goto tens. Just look at cw.

T110E5 or IS-7. I voted for the T110E5 since they're used so much in CW.

Find what your strong points and weaknesses are. Your preferred role and such. That will define the best tier 10 tank.

Its easy best= Strongest toolset in the most areas. This means a master can use the tank at master level in more areas.

IMO its the IS7 hands down, it has most attributes, and is 2nd place in almost all things. Meaning it can keep up with almost every other tank in its strongest suit, but by far its the most forgiving, yes the T110 can rape when used right but once your hit in the side by a T5 Arty and taken to half health and lose 2 out of 4 crew members your cooked.

IS7 has 2nd best over all armor and some might Argue first in the hands of a master, or the fact 85% of its front is 420+ vs Heat and 500 in some areas, also its sides are rediculous with 3 layers of Armor thats spaced obviously and  really only 1 narrow spot to easily DMG the tank, right above track by 2 inches but not above the track by 7 inches so basically a 5 inch gap to go through easily and dmg with less than a T8 heavy gun.

Also we are trained as US tankers to get snap shots often as we dont have time to aim, or we only get a split second, we are quik draw guys look at how thick the side turret and upper side is....And very sloped, the side is very risky shot vs a IS7.

http://i32.fastpic.r...bb8668ba315.png

Also its Turret is God and if you can find a spot where you can hull down it, nothing can touch you. Also Look at how thick the damned shell is and you can see why its so Arty resistant.
Seriously look at that turret even from above, its thick and thats its very thinnest, mix that with round shape and its bounce central with not alot of weakspots for T8`s 140ish Pen Rounds to hit it.
Also notice how its shells/Ammo rack is in a very thick area with a great set of angles with both a 60 degree slope and a 40 degree lateral pulback of the plate allowing it to be a effective 72ish Degrees. So unless you hit its rear its very hard to ammo rack.

http://i14.fastpic.r...3b63293e0b5.jpg

Lastly it remains ACPR and ths is a massive bonus compared to the HEAT rounds that effectively lose 12 degrees of slope vs the ACPR. HEAT simply struggles very hard vs anything with slope ACPR doesnt and now that only the 50b has these rounds besides the IS7 its a MASSIVE bonus in gunnery, the IS7 can hit both flat targets like the MAUS`s turret and its frontal Armor where as the HEAT rounds vs a 200mm 60 slope need a 400 Roll each time meaning 50/50 and for the T110 meaning 38ish%. Where as vs the ACPR and its 12 degree Norm [maybe its 11 now] its 200mm@49 degrees making it 304mm effective and also being able to shoot its 200mm turret for a sure shot as well, meaning while the IS7 cant lock on as fast it doesnt have to, it just has to hit the target anywhere.

Also Speed the IS7 is still a Tank that can keep up with Meds in a straight line and very much can wolfpack, and with the new crew perks its top speed has gone from 38ish to 41-42ish because friction is decreased with certain skills.

Lastly it has a huge crew and we all know the more crew the better, both with getting roles knocked out but mainly Perks 6 Crew=18 perks where 4=12 with 3 skills a pop, that is significantly larger and can early on do redundant skills that a 4 man crew cant.

All in all IS7 is the best tank in the game IMO, yes it suffers from some soft stats like depression but more than makes up for it in Protection Speed and other abilities.

Well, my personal bests depend on what I feel like doing....

That said, the IS-7 and T110 are probably hands down the best for all around stats. They both have very sufficient frontal hull armor and mobility, to start. Actually, as far as frontal armor goes both of these tanks have some of the best in the game; I bounce way more off of the lower hull of a T110 than I do an E100, and that tumor isn't as easy to hit as people were saying it was going to be. And despite the recent nerf to Rate of Fire the T110 still has one of the highest damage outputs in the game as well as great accuracy.

The IS-7 on the other hand has lower penetration, accuracy, and rate of fire but a higher alpha damage. I have an IS-7 myself (my thoughts on the T110 are mostly from fighting them), and the key advantage I see from it is some great 360-degree armor. There seems to be a strip on the side where you just can't penetrate with AP (I've bounced 4 shots in a row using an 268 pen gun at point blank on the sides of an IS-7), as well as a nearly invincible turret. The side armor of the IS-7 is a huge asset, since that is the biggest weakness I've seen from the T110 is that artillery can vaporize it with a well placed shot. For team based games the IS-7 and T110 generally dominate the playing field.


HOWEVER, for public matches I much prefer my IS-4 and E100. The IS-4 has few advantages over the IS-7, but the ones it has are not insubstantial. Having 250 extra hitpoints is an obvious benefit, and you'd be surprised how much that can help. It also has a better gun in my opinion, since the 122mm has superior penetration and accuracy over the 130mm. The armor is overall weaker, BUT its weak-spots are harder to hit, and that which can hurt an IS-4 will probably also hurt an IS-7. So, we have 2 tanks of similar size, similar handling, and similar armor. The IS-4 has a little less frontal armor that makes it a little more vulnerable, but a better gun that shoots faster. Against Tier 9 and lower opponents that an IS-4 can face in a public match it can use this high penetration to essentially "point and shoot", while having effective armor that is still quite good.

Mine has Brothers in Arms and Vents on it, so it also seems to be faster to accelerate than the IS-7 (not sure if that's just because of the better crew though). And with vertical stabilizers the thing is very accurate. Overall, a great tank.

Meanwhile, we have the E100. This tank has a very bad rep for two reasons, one of which is completely justified while the other is debatable. The biggest flaw is that it is easily the second worst armored Tier 10 of all. That lower hull is WEAK, and huge. It has less effective armor than the E75 did there, and the area is literally almost as large as the entire hull of an IS-4 or T30. It basically almost nullifies the armor of the tank, and makes it incredibly vulnerable. This is the one thing that I still haven't been able to get over.

The other thing is the gun. Many people cannot stand the 15cm, but I quite like it IF I'M IN A PUBLIC MATCH. 235mm of penetration is sufficient for almost every tank up to Tier 9, and it only really struggles against the other Tier 10 tanks (namely the IS-7, IS-4, and T110). So, if the gun does poorly against other tier 10's, what's the point?

The point is that against everything it CAN hurt it will wipe off the face of the planet. This makes it ideal for a public match. The vast majority of your foes will be easy to hurt. Granted, anything tier 7 and above can hurt you as well if they get a shot on your lower hull, but you'll kill them much faster and more efficiently. Nor is the E100 that slow, so it gets around nicely enough. The reloads are a little longer, but far from unbearable (they're actually faster than the T30's reload). So, for public stomping the E100 is great.

For competitive gaming it's not so great unless you've got the gold for the ammo. I've never used gold ammo in mine before, but I can see where you'd need it if you went 1 on 1 with another Tier 10. Nor do I advise High Explosive spamming. The E100 was NEVER ideal for that :Smile_sceptic:

I would say IS-7 since it's got a rare combination of small size, great mobility, awesome fire power, good rate of fire, and good armor. This thing also can make a very easy transition from heavy to medium style play.

T110 and IS-7 for sure.

Other tanks are niche like the Maus and 50B.

Well my opinion is the T110 as #1, followed closely by the IS-7 as #2 (only by what I've played against in my T110).

T110 has superior firepower to the IS-7. T110 can mobilize a little better than the IS-7, however a slower maximum speed. T110's hull is slightly stronger (lower hull) than IS-7's front hull, unless the IS-7 angles properly. IS-7's turret armor is far superior to T110's turret armor. I bounce on the back of IS-7's turret quite often.

I honestly think if the "tumor" was removed from T110 and a small buff to side armor, my T110 can beat an IS-7 in Himelsdwarf* (spell check*) tank-alley with only scratches. Which is the reason I think they kept it the way it was so it doesn't feel like the T110 is a cheat to WoT.

All posts are opinions, including mine, nothing is factual.
