Hello im new to world of tanks and was wondering what nation has the overall stronger tanks and what line would be best to go down . I wanna go down a heavy line and a medium tank line on 2 different nations so basically . 1 nation will be medium tank line the other nation will be heavy tank line. I started playing both tier 1 tanks for us and russia but am not sure which one has the better tanks for each line.

If you want good heavies, I suggest you go Soviet heavies and Soviet mediums. Soviet heavies have sloped armor which deflects a lot of shots, they have huge guns, 122 and 130mm compared to the Germans 105 and 128mm, and they are fast.

Soviet mediums are also sloped, they have 100mm guns early in the game, but they have weaker armor.

well being a clasic patriot and all my anwser will be a little biased but, I think American Tech tree has better heaveys and mediums. I guess the USSR has better heavey tanks and the U.S.A has better medium tanks, especially the M4 Sherman and the M4A3E8 Sherman. B) The Soviet KV and KV-3 sacrafice turret travers speed and speed all together really for one hell of a gun. ;)

yep go russian tanks and you won't go wrong sadly. german Tds have no camo skill compared to russian, they have best meds meaning the t54, and there hvy tanks bounce shots with that ridiculously sloped armor. Don't go american hvy tanks because they keep getting nerfed into nothing.

I wouldn't say they get nerfed into nothing. if they do get nerfed into nothing its not the tank's fault it's the tanker's fault. I still stand with my first statement, American mediums, and Russian heaveys.

yes its the tankers fault for knowing how to utilize a tank effectively so the devs decide to nerf it because people learned to play american hvys. The t29 got nerfed and the t32 will also be nerfed soon according to the devs

it's sad that they have to down grade a tank because people know how to use it. :(

US heavies suck. And they are constantly getting nerf'd. The T29 and the T32 (Tier 7 and tier 8) are the only two worth getting and they're about to get hit with the nerf bat again, for absolutely no reason.

The Russian heavy route is the only one that makes any sense anymore. They define the Holy Trinity. Play anything else and you're just handicapping yourself.

I've played mediums and heavies through tier 6 on all 3 countries and I far prefer the Germans for medium tanks.  Don't ask me why; I just enjoy playing them more.  The Sherman is a fun tank, too.  As for heavies, I had the most fun with my KV and later my Tiger.  I loved using the KV's 152mm gun in matches where I was top tank.  Really, tank choice shouldn't just be about stats, but about what someone will like playing with.  You can have a Maus or IS-7 or T30, but if you don't enjoy it, what's the point?

Russia has the most POPULAR tanks... No one believes the devs when they say that stats prove that other tanks perform better.

People buy into the theory and as a result are generally more confident in a Russian tank and they drive it differently than they drive other countries.

I personally recommend Soviet heavy and medium tanks. Soviet heavy tanks have enermous firepower and good mobility at later tiers, while Soviet medium tanks have good firepower, average armor and excellent mobility.

What ive found is until the Sherman, American Mediums Suck. After they get that they are quite good.

American heavies seem, faster? Honestly ive seen them haul ass places but alot of Derpy people seem to think its supposed to stand there and fight on equal ground. It can take some hits but its not designed to go 1v1 head on.
