lets see here....T-150....would beat M6 any day...KV-85...out DPM....ARL44.....somewhat better armor and better pen gun....KV-2....has chance of derping and is widely feared....TOG II*...heheh...sheer HP and DPM would beat it.....Churchill VII....again, more HP and out dpms...ON TO THE MEDIUMS! Cromwell, E8, Fury, even T-34-85 beat it. Lights....pretty much everything but AMX 12T, maybe VK2801 with derp. Tank destroyers! SU-100(Y), FV304(not a TD, but whatever)....yep. M6 is good, but not THAT good.

Yeah, the side and back armor is paper for tier 6...

I just got my M6 again. I like it much better with a crew that's on their 4th set of skills. It's hardly the best or worst, I'd say it's the most balanced of the 6s. It's reasonably fast, decent gun, good rof. But it's armor is average, it's too huge and tall to hide well.
It's a good tank, I just unlocked the T-150 via the KV2 so I'll be comparing them soon.

I always liked facing the M6. So squishy and easy to kill. Even through the frontal armor.

There have been so many times where I've planted a 152 HE shell straight through the drivers port to one shot one of them :D

 

That IS actually pretty funny! :teethhappy:

Let's see here... tanks i've destroyed with the 90mm on the M6... Tiger I (shot me already and straight through the frontal armor), Panther/M10 (shot me as well), T28 Prot (turning its turret at me), M18 Hellcat (shot me twice).

M6 isn't about armor. It's about mobility and gun depression & control. It's also got great RoF/DPM and an insane APCR round at tier 6. You can penetrate any tier 8 heavy tank frontally with its APCR round, on their strong points. 

 

It's my favorite t6 heavy since the early days.

How 'bout the 90mm that I have? Hmm? 200+ penetration here. INSANE APCR, too.

My overview of the KV-2. Armor? Bad. Speed? Bad. Reload? Centuries flying by. Turret traverse? SLOOW. Traverse? Bad. 152mm gun? Best thing about it. The 152mm gun is all players are going for, even though after a shot, you're done for.

The KV-2 is an extremely dangerous tank to run into if you're in an M6 and one could make the case that it's the worst tier 6 heavy but I personally love the M6. It feels very manoeuvrable for a heavy tank, it has great gun depression and turret armor, a great gun for the tier, etc. You just have to use it like a medium or second line heavy. It can't brawl with pretty much any heavy tanks including some tier 5 because you'll get reliably penned from the front, not to mention the sides but hull down it can be extremely effective. It's all about picking your battles and figuring out how to only take hits to your turret and you can do real damage in that thing. I sold it at some point but I'm thinking of buying it back.

The KV-2 isn't dangerous now. At least to me.

You are using the arl wrong if you are using that gun. Use the 105, better alpha, dpm, and more dmg with the apcr rounds. The 105 also has really good pen for tier 6 there really is no reason for 200 pen at tier 6 especially since it gives up so much dpm and aim time.

I recently got the M6 out of curiosity. While I had the M1A2 on it it was pure garbage. I had the occasional good game but the M1A2 just doesn't cut it on this tank. Then I unlocked the 90mm and on my 3rd game with it I got my first and only Radley Walters medal. The following 3 games all had me do my own health in damage or more (2 wins, 1 loss; I'm 36%ish wins in this tank so far due to my failing with the M1A2, something I feel the 90mm will now shortly correct).

 

I like to call the M6 the "American Tiger" or "Mountain Lion" because that's the play style of the tank as near as I can figure. It's a sniper just as surely as the Tiger I is a sniper (as top tier or top tank it can get its hands dirty in a brawl so long as its well supported, but tier 7 and 8 matches means pure sniper mode IMHO). It's also like a M36 Jackson that traded its camo for additional health and a bit more frontal armor. I have a love/hate relationship with sniping heavies as pubbies think "heavies brawl" (your role is in your tank's stats, not its weight class; weight class roles are a myth) so there tends to be some hate and lots of click captains who think they know my tank's role better than I do. Being a team player at heart though, I always feel a bit "guilty" or uncomfortable in sniping heavies due to these expectations. I guess the upside is I don't mind being bottom tier nearly as much in sniping heavies as I do in brawlier tanks.
