I would like to nominate the t32 as the best tier 8 heavy tank in the game.  I know we all hear about the is3 being the best but i dominate is3 tanks and tiger 2 dont even stand a chance against this tank, so lets hear it t32 drivers, is this the best tier 8 tank in the game.

As long as it does not have penetration over 200, I would not make it the best Tier 8.

i love my t32 but the 105 on it bounces alot its best turret has alot of armor but it gets outguns by the russians and germans and it doesn't bounce anything until you get the best turret on it the stock turret basically is a joke

Just like the JagdTiger doesn't need camo, right? Thanks for your opinion.

well in most situations the gun does what it needs to do, there is only a couple of tanks it has a hard time penetrating on so in effect the 198 penetration is fine.  i will agree though the stock turret is a bunch of crap, what is it like 130 mm or armor, so it gets penetrated even on the turret by tier 4 tanks but upgraded is what im talkign about, this tank upgraded has to be the best.

so when the other tier 8s can punch through higher tier tanks and the t32 can't it doesn't need over 200 penetration

well at least you aren't driving a king tiger where even its best turret can be punched through by a tier 4 in which case every shot to the turret penetrates

The 105mm can actually capable of penetrating all tanks from the front.  It just has a tough time doing so on certain ones, but it is certainly doable.

This problem is rectify by the fact that nearly all guns can't penetrate the turret from the front.  Yeah, the high end tier 10 TD guns and the T30 gun can do it, but they have a pretty damn hard time doing it too.

T-32 and IS-3 are both equal in my eyes.  Both tanks can beat the other if fighting on their terms.  Both tanks are vulnerable if taken out of their element.

For all intents and purposes nothing will really get through that turret on a regular basis without gold ammo.  I've tested this with my friend's ISU BL-10.  Unless using HE or gold ammo, don't even bother.  My T30 nor my JT can do it.  I don't bother.

Even with the 198 penetration I still think It edges out the other two tanks.  The IS3 is overrated and the KT underrated.  

No but WAIT, IT SUCKS

please don't nerf it (again for 3x) overlord

T32 is the best American heavy tank compared to its counterparts. The T29 edges out the Tiger and IS, and the T34 and T30 sorely lose to their counterparts. T30 is close, but one magical bounce and you are ****'d.

You don't even need to hull down many times in the T32 because dispersion means that most shots will hit your wonderful turret front.

Unless I have the free exp to completely skip the T34, I'm staying with the T32 at release :/

I used to say the IS-3 was the best tier 8 tank, but then I realized the IS-3 is a rolling ammo rack and the T32 is not.

I need to hurry up and finish up with my T29 amd get the T32, I'm in need of a good heavy tank other than the T29.

And I'd rather take an accuracy buff for the 105mm instead of extra penetration in order compenesate for the slightly lower penetration compared to the Long 105mm and BL-9.

I can see the T32 not needing extra penetration but definitely accuracy. But at T34 level, it NEEDS more penetration.

That's what the 120mm is for.

Oh wait, you gotta grind 110,000 exp for that...

Lower the exp needed for the 120mm Gun T53 and maybe even increase the RoF on the 105mm Gun T5E1 for the T34. As much as extra penetration and accuracy wouldn't matter for the T29 when it's in Tier 7 battles as it already curbs most of the competition, it'd be hard to have those T29s balanced in Tier 8+ battles with a gun that outpaces the BL-9 and Kwk 46 L/68 in everything except RoF.

Or maybe reserve the 105mm T5E1 for only the T29 and T32, but then the T32 could research the 105mm Gun T5E1M2 as a stop-gap until the T34 can equip the 120mm.

It is obviously the most powerful tier 8 heavy from the three. The gap between T32 and KT/IS-3 is too big currently. T32 is likely to be "adjusted" in v.0.6.4.

How about you, oh say, buff the other two tanks.  I really can't believe this is happening.  Again, another nerf.  Unbelievable.  I really hope some other developer takes this tank concept and does it justice.  Can you give me ONE good reason not to use russian tanks when the game goes live???

So what are you going to do?  Nerf the RoF?  Ok, now it will be less than the other two WITH less penetration.  Why not 5 like the T29?  Why not more?  Why not 3 RPM?  Nerf the armor?  You better not after buffing the IS4 armor to 'historical' specs.  Nerf the agility/turet speed rotation?  You've ALREADY done that.  What more CAN YOU POSSIBLY DO?  Jesus christ just accept that historically the tank DOESN'T suck and that when used right (hull down) its an effective tank.

well i can, i prefer to drive american tanks, ive tried them all and like americans the bestest.  couldnt even get past the tiger in german though.  all the way to is7 in russian and they seem to not be consistent.  i either bounce everything and im like a god or i bounce nothing and get wtfpwned.  the american tanks are generally more consistent.
