Recently I got bored of CW and high tier battles and bought on sale t2 light ,which rekindled my interest in low tier battles. So far I discovered:

- bt2 - most fun t2 for me. Awesome speed. Good penetration gun.
- hotchkiss - "heavy" of t2 battles. Bounces lots of shots but slow! Great at tanking damage . overall worth playing if you like slow  armored turtles
- t2 light. Peashooter gun, but god its fast!  most fun scout tank I played so far

Any other great tanks at low tiers?

Agreed on the T2, very fun to play :)

The PZII is also very good.
If you get 100% trained crews and then secondary skills its really a beast.

M2 medium (tier 3) is a fun little tank. Not excitingly fast nor defensively strong, but boy is that 75mm howitzer fun to use! It's dangerous against any tier, but if you're lucky you can even one-shot other tier 3 tanks, much less the tier 2's you'll see on occasion.

Just got the M3 Stuart (another tier 3) and I love the speed, but haven't been real impressed with durability or firepower. That's likely because I've had the misfortune of drawing a lot of tier 3-5 matches with it.

Tier 2 seems to be the sweet spot for low-tier fun though (pretty much any tier 2 tank I've tried can be fun), as you shouldn't see anything higher than tier 4, so you won't get one-shotted by a KV 152mm blast if you go around the wrong corner at the wrong time.

Luchs, Leopard, Panzer III (Best tier 4 imo), Hetzer. Just about every Soviet low tier suck.

The Marder II and the M2 Light are my two favorite low tier vehicles.

Marauder II, M2 medium, T-28, M3 Lee all get my votes. I enjoyed them all so much!

No one's mentioned the AT-1? It's pretty pokey and it's made of papier mache, but the 57mm gun on it is an overpowered death-dealer.

My personal favorites for the low tier were the T-26, the AT-1 (love the 57mm lol), and the PzKpfw 35(t). They can all take a decent amount of damage as well as deal it out themselves.

i wouldn't consider leopard low tier as often times it gets thrown into t10 games. saw one today in a game with 6 t10 heavyweights lol.

I've been enjoying the Panzer IIIA, Luchs, and T-46 recently.  Fun fighting other light tanks, arty hunting, and spotting enemies for your teammates (not suicide scouting).  I like these tanks way more than the tier 4 lights due to better matchmaking.
