That kind of question can only be asked by people who don't ponder what tanks they have available. When i got my M4 Sherman, I was practically made of cardboard against most other tier 5's. But I kept on using it, because I look up the details on the other tanks in the game. Figuring out the performance of other vehicles in the game really helps by knowing the advantages, and the disadvantages. (As well as upgrading your tank to it's best).

My policy is to go buy every tank I think is OP, and that I'm tired of having kill my [edited].
i have yet to find an OP tank when I'm driving it. If fact, a lot of seemingly OP tanks are kind of a nightmare to drive, and will have you dead in a blink if you don't have the skillz. T49, I'm looking at you!!
that said, there are better and worse tanks. Fcm36pak40 is a stone cold killer, as is LeFrenchyArty. T40 TD is a buzz saw if you can hide, and hellcat can grape in the right hands.

I kinda tried the same plan, with similar results.  I discovered that I can be killed in whatever I drive.  For me, the KV-1S was over-hyped, still not used to it's play style.  Getting a lot better recently.  I do love the '49 and Hellikitty though.

Overpowered tanks....  well, i think the KV-2 is what nightmares are made of!  Yes, the T 18 dominates in tier 2 matches.   What about the T95?  Whenever I see one of those bad boys, I take extra care to be on the opposite side of the map.

Wow - serious necro thread. 

 

KV-2 isn't OP. Insanely slow reload, derpy gun can sort of hit things sometimes sorta, giant bobblehead sheet-metal turret doesn't bounce much, slow turret rotation, and hideous mobility. 

 

Now, I've pulled off a couple 500m shots in my KV-2 (two in a row, on Prok, from the field in front of base to the top of hill - killed both tanks hiding up there, used up all my RNG love for a year or so), but you sure can't plan on that sort of thing. 

 

I'll also admit that a KV-2 or T95 in a tactically advantageous position can be scary as hell. However, in ALL other situations, they're arty-bait and insanely vulnerable. Like a lot of the 'OP' tanks, they pay for their one amazing feature with... everything else. Catch 'em moving from spot to spot, and they're toast. Making them once again, only 'OP' in the hands of a driver who can get them into the advantageous spot, make good use of it, and not get killed in between. All of which suggests an OP driver, not an OP tank, at least to me.

Bad necro is bad. I don't think there are 10 OP tanks in this game much less per tier.

 

Mods, please close this bad thread from yesteryear.

The Maus is OP, it has most life and armors in the whole game.

KV-1, T29, and T-54 are the OP tolls of their tier, and have been for a long time.
New German TD line is definitely OP with massive alpha autoloaders, but they are sure to get hit hard with the nerf hammer as soon as WG feels enough people have spent gold acquiring them.

 

KV-1 is too slow to be OP, and easily destroyed by tier IV TDs. T29 has no side or back armor, not hard to defeat. I don't know where this idea comes from that it's "OP".

Anything with a derp or otherwise-subpar accuracy has gotten pretty ridiculous since the sigma change in 8.6. Sorry to anyone who's butthurt by that, but there's no reason in the world why my KV-2 should be able to reliably nuke targets >400m away.

This is the key to the OPness of tanks such as the KV-1S and the KV-2.  Prior to the game-wide accuracy buff, they were very undependable at long range.  Now they are deadly.   In addition, the general accuracy buff was, in effect, a huge NERF to the small, nimble scouts.  Formerly they could weave through enemy lines at high speed.  Now the opposing team generally pops them on the run.

The only OP tank I can think of is the KV-1. It's just too forgiving. The Foch 155 is a little strong but it can be dealt with. The camo on Object 268 is a little irritating but patience usually kills those things.

 

Foch?! Strong?! You must be high, drunk and playing a different game.

Depends, is that OP when not trying, or OP when played properly?
The 113 has the potential the be quite a roadblock when hull down.

 

So does the is7, and the plus is that the is7 has double the depression, more turret armor, and actual hull armor

Chi-Ri is hilariously strong in tier 7 battles.
