Tier 5: OI Experimental. This is a polebarn on tracks, even more stupid than the TOG. At least the TOG has enough hitpoints to kill you before you kill it. And Wargaming buffed the armor and nerfed the gun, in a game where armor is mostly irrelevant. Runner up: VK 30.01 (H), because it's not really a heavy tank.

 

Tier 6: Churchill VII. We all know Wargaming hates British heavy tanks even more than it does American heavy tanks, here is your proof. Runner up: TOG II.

 

Tier 7: Black Prince, though arguably it's not that bad. Runner up, FV 201 A45, even though it's an uncommon reward tank, because it combines the worst qualities of British heavies and mediums at a tier that is one too high.

 

Tier 8: AMX 65T. Slow. Low DPM, Inaccurate. Useless armor. Couldn't they make it do one thing well? Runner up: Emil 1/Caernarvon, because they both suck.

 

Tier 9: Tough call, because nothing I've played at tier 9 really sucks that bad. Probably the Conqueror, simply because it needs better mobility for balance.

 

Tier 10: Another tough call, because I haven't played all these extensively, but I'm going with the Super Conqueror, because even though it's better than the 215 it replaced, the armor always lets it down. And it's also too slow. Runner up: T110 E5.

Worst tier 8 heavy, Mauerbrecher. Only works when top tier or playing like a TD.

If the Super Conqueror is anywhere on your list, you're doing it wrong.

The only tank on your list I could remotely agree with is the O-I Exp. Since the nerf, its been a terrible tank. 

 

The British heavies really aren't that bad, its just a different play style that most people aren't used to. The Super Conq is still one of the most picked heavy tanks for Clan wars, so that one is really wrong. 

 

Tier 6: ARL 44 Its big, its slow, and it doesn't have armor to make up for it. Lowest DPM for heavies of its tier, it doesnt really have many redeeming qualities. Some people can find a reason to love it, but most simply hate it. 

Tier 7: IS-2 (Chinese) Take a Russian tank and make it bad, that essentially what this thing is. The premium version of this tank is far more superior and this tank was a tough grind. 

Tier 8: T-32 One of the lowest DPM of its tier for heavies paired with terrible pen, this tank is terrible. Basically the whole line after tier 7 is useless and not worth the grind. 

Tier 9: M103 Easy to pen turret, very little armor, the M103 really isn't considered a threat to any tank above tier 7. At least its a step above the T-32, but its still a terrible tank in comparison to others of its tier. 

Tier 10: E100 This tank is really outdated. In its prime, it was a fun tank to play. Nowadays, it is easily penned and not really considered a major threat to anything with more than 90mm of armor. 

 

Of course these are just my opinion as well.

I actually have the impression that both Conquerors are OP.

 

My List:

 

Tier 5 - VK30/Churchill I

 

Tier 6 - Churchill VII

 

Tier 7 - Black Prince

 

Tier 8 - VK45A/Mauerbrecher

 

Tier 9 - Mausen/M103

 

Tier 10 - IS-4

Should have thrown the T32 and T34 on that list given how outdated both tanks are and their low dpm is ball busting at best.

But in reality, neither are the B1/B2 or DW down at Tier 4.  They should be reclassed at medium.  Up to Tier 8, I can't find an issue with your list.  Looks correct IMHO.

There are a lot of differing opinions here...that's good to see.  I'll be worried when everyone agrees on what's the worst(or best).

 

Except Arty...we all know the S-51 is the best!

Of your list, for me, the Black Prince was bad. The Conqueror thought, wth. That is a good heavy tank. I don't have it yet, but the Super Conqueror seems pretty good too from going against it.

Tank curves at wot-news say it is underperforming for all skill levels of players.  The only other T7 heavy that's true of is the tiger I, and it isn't as large an underperformance in thr case of the tiger.
