Sup guys! So I haven't played much since beta and never got into CW or anything neat that came out after. Some Quick google searches yielded old results from 2013-2015 tops and I want current data.

So here it goes: What is the most used tier X tanks in clan wars, and why? I'm looking more for what is statistically the best option as far as tech tree is concerned for the grind, not so much personal opinions. What is "OP", "meta", etc. I rather not waste months grinding something useless, and as we all know the majority of tanks in this game turn out to be huge disappointments.

Looking for primary/secondary bests in all categories: Heavy, Med, LIght, TD, SPG. Thanks for any and all input!

Russian mediums (mostly the 140) have been in the meta as long as they have existed. Going for those is a safe bet. Current meta involves a lot of Maus and WZ-111 5As, but I'm not sure how long that meta will last. The Bat 25t is used as a spotter in any battles that require one, but may be usurped by tier 10 lights if they get the buff they so desperately need. Situational tanks include the IS-7, M48 Patton, and T110E3. If you want to go for arty, the CGC and sometimes the Bat arty are used (mostly the CGC).

 

As for the primary/secondary bests:

Lights: None, they all suck.

Mediums: Russian meds (140 best, 62A 2nd best), then Batchat 25t

Heavies: WZ-111 5A, then Maus

TDs: Strv 103B, then T110E3

Arty: Conqueror GC, then Bat 155 58

T-22 med which you had to sign up for one of those anime clans and rig missions so hard.

Obj 907 which you had to suck clan commander's xxxx for 2 months.

Obj 260 which you have to pay someone else to run your account to complete missions.

It depends on the style of the caller. Right now your best tanks to own for CW would be WZ-111 5A, Maus, Obj. 140, and B-C 25T. I bring a lot less meta stuff like Foch B, Type 5, IS-7, and the numbers of tanks I bring is different from most other callers as well for example I usually bring like 4 or 5 B-C's. Just depends.

Well, you're right about the 907 at least. WG really screwed up with the HD model on that thing.

Lol they should have named this campaign “Operation Type 5”.  You want a meta tank?  Get a Type 5.

 

Aside from that..

5A, Russian meds, Bat, 50b, E3/E4, Maus are all regular CW meta.

IS7, 113, 48 Patton, T57, Jager, TVP can be subbed in certain strats.

Heavies:  Type 5/Maus on most city maps.  Super Conq on anything with hills.  5A for maps where you need a fast heavy.  And IS7 as a filler for any of those.  

Mediums:  Russian Mediums (140/907/62A), Batchat.   Usually the batchat works as a scout vehicle, so it's really only a good choice to grind for if you're an excellent player who can be trusted.  Other mediums are used situationally.

TDs:  STRV, E3.  Badger started seeing some use, but not sure how meta it's going to be.

Arty:  Conq, 53/55 (for the campaign at least), and Obj 261.

Lights:  T100 probably most meta.  However, like the batchat comment above, the guy doing the scouting is going to be the one the caller probably trusts the most on the team.

 

Anything else can be used, but it's going to be situational to support a strat.  So you may have a caller who likes to have a mass of mediums with some xtra burst damage and runs 50bs or TVPs with the mediums - so that clan would have those tanks as more meta choices.  But the above is a pretty good 80% solution.

Super Conqueror makes the list now too.  Badgers will probably start making it in to the meta as well.

Why does the Super Conq see more play on battles with hills than say the Kranvagn?

Because of Kran's long reload time. And the Super conqueror's turret is great against Heat rounds(unless shot in the turret ring).

The super conq's gun is far better than the Kran's.  320something APCR instead of 300 pen HEAT, and far better gun handling and accuracy.

Not only that but the HESH Shell it carries is really good for smacking light targets like RU Meds, and others nations
