I thought there was a poll here but couldn't find it.

What's the best tank for each class (heavy, medium, light, td, spg) in all tiers? No Premiums!

And why?

Best medium: M4A3E8 (was going to say the Lee but it would be a total lie)

Yeah it would be. I grinded the Lee to my Sherman and had to do it again for my T1 and hated it both times.

This question probably wouldn't piss me off as much as it did if it asked "What do you think is the best tank for each class (heavy, medium, light, td, spg) in all tiers? No Premiums!"

There is no such thing as "best" only "best at ***"

Just my 2cents.

Tier1: Ltraktor German light
Tier2: T18 American TD
Tier4: Hetzer German TD, Matilda Brit Med
Tier5: KV-1 Soviet Heavy, StugIII German TD, M4 Sherman Murican Med (Tier 5's are generally great)
Tier6: Hellkitty American TD, VK3601 German Med, KV-1s Soviet Heavy
Tier7: IS Soviet Heavy, T29 American Heavy
Tier8: IS-3 Soviet Heavy, T-44 Soviet Med

Based on my experience playing them or fighting against them.

In all honesty though, whatever tank that suits your playstyle in each tier.

I can sum up how a tank performs with the following statement...............

"Its the driver folks."

I know a number of players that like their M3 Lee and think it is a great tank, and in all honesty, they are damn good with it.

You hardly see a VK3001H in battles as it isn't well liked as a medium tank. Heck I get LOLs when I say in game it is a good tank, this is after a post like "Poor man has to drive the VK3001H." Well they often change their tune after they see me drive it.

On the flip side I have trouble with the M4 series of US tanks....................

The Driver......................

Tier 1: Obvious Liechtrakktor is obvious.
Tier 2: T18 and Panzerjager I
Tier 3: Marder II (all those years ago before it was nerfed to crap), UE-57, Valentine AT, T-46.
Tier 4: Obvious Hetzer is obvious, and T-50 (before it's HorsePower was nerfed, I could have lived with no 57mm).
Tier 5: KV-1, M4, Panzer IV.
Tier 6: Hellcat, VK 3601 (H), T-34/85, and obvious TOG is obvious.
Tier 7: T29, Tiger I, KV-13
Tier 8: Tiger II, IS-3, T34, T-44
Tier 9: M103, T-54/55, Tortoise.
Tier 10: E-100, T-62A, T110E5, Foch 155, Maus.

My 2 cents  :blinky:

T20. Good gun with sucky armor. But since the 8.6 came out, an IS bounce my front armor.

I'm not sure how the E8 qualifies.

Low armor, low mobility for a medium(it handles like a Tiger tank), low penetration, low alpha, high profile... The list goes on.

I really think the Comet, T-34-85, and the VK3601H are all much better mediums.

I know you can put a great driver into any tank and s/he'll do well. Just looking for opinions here not what the raw stats say should be the best.

Thanks for replies so far.

T20 is statistically one of the worst tier 7 mediums, just above the Panther in last place.

Tier 5: T49. No competition. Mediums are meh at that tier (thanks for the derp nerf, WG!), and the heavies are more annoying than deadly because of their size and pretty terrible armor.
Tier 6: Hellcat, KV-1S, or Cromwell. VK 36.01 H is good, but it doesn't preform as well as a Cromwell.
Tier 7: IS (and IS-2) should preform better than the T29 because of its DPM, speed, and profile, but people generally love the T29 because its even easier to play than an IS. Medium wise, Comet is the best out of the group because it has DPM and pretty good pen, but it actually requires some skill to play.
Noobmeter is nice, but its not 100% accurate on everything. Take it as a grain of salt.
