tier 1: wg gave us none

tier 2: wg gave us none

tier 3: ^^

tier 4: pzb2. again not many choices in this tier but ill go with this premium one.

tier 5: kv1s. the old legend lives again, 1 tier lower. decent mobility, gud gun, decent pen, gud dpm. compared to the other offerings, ill take it

tier 6: arl44. big gun. do i have to say more? BIG GUN. 

tier 7: this is a tough one. many contenders but i will have to go with the t29 simply due to gun depression. its more flexible than the others

tier 8: oh boy. its a sea of sharks in this tier now. you will get many varied opinions here but if i had to choose 1, that would be the is3 simply because its the tank i "grew up" used with. i never felt the armor of the defender was worth much since its all tier 10 games anyway now. im sure many will disagree but im going with the is3.

tier 9: t10. no question. gun depression can be annoying but thats about it. its got the alpha to punish and the pen to hold its own. there are many great tanks here but ill have to go with the t10  just because its the one i like the most and still find it relevant. 

tier 10: this is mission impossible and the answer will depend on what you are looking for in a tank.  i will have to go with the superconq because i find it the most all around tank. its not as specialized as the 50b or the type5.  i was never a fan of the chinese clones so i'll take it over the 5a too. 

 

there.

tier 5: kv1s. the old legend lives again, 1 tier lower. decent mobility, gud gun, decent pen, gud dpm. compared to the other offerings, ill take it KV-1, either with the 57 or top gun is my go to.

tier 6: arl44. big gun. do i have to say more? BIG GUN. Imma say the KV-85 its far more flexible than the 44

 

tier 7: this is a tough one. many contenders but i will have to go with the t29 simply due to gun depression. its more flexible than the others My go to is the IS-2 berlin, the T29 nowadays is getting more and more situational

 

tier 8: oh boy. its a sea of sharks in this tier now. you will get many varied opinions here but if i had to choose 1, that would be the is3 simply because its the tank i "grew up" used with. i never felt the armor of the defender was worth much since its all tier 10 games anyway now. im sure many will disagree but im going with the is3. Got nothin, in terms of "what i think is best" do have a fave, and that's the Lowe, its gun (to quote super noodle) can pull off shots which are complete bullsh*t.

 

tier 9: t10. no question. gun depression can be annoying but thats about it. its got the alpha to punish and the pen to hold its own. there are many great tanks here but ill have to go with the t10  just because its the one i like the most and still find it relevant.  TBH, only played a couple of t-9 heavies (tends to be the tier I free xp pass) And I hated the T10, love my AMX 50 120 tho

 

tier 10: this is mission impossible and the answer will depend on what you are looking for in a tank.  i will have to go with the superconq because i find it the most all around tank. its not as specialized as the 50b or the type5.  i was never a fan of the chinese clones so i'll take it over the 5a too.  In terms of best, i got nothin, but I love my Type 5 heavy, and will putt around my 140 every so often....

 

there.

i already said im not comparing them against each other. in actual games, they are about the same to tier 10 guns.

54 is a medium. 

 

is2 berlin is an absolute beast and was a runner up. but i went with t29 simply because it can shoot over rocks. on a city map is2 > t29 for sure.

Tier 3 Type 91 Heavy is the best and the worst of that tier HTs.

 

Tier 5 - O-I exp has bigger Derp gun, bigger armor and it's "swift"

 

Tier 6 - O-I and KV 2 

Tier 7 - T 29 and it's tier 9 manlet

Tier 8 - Deaf End There

Tire 9 - Type 4 Godzilla.  Big Gun loaded with "gold" is perfect remedy against anything, especially sidescrapers.

Tier 10 - 5A, only issue it has is weak wheel armor, Death Star and Death Barn loves to to shoot there with HESH

For me, my favorite heavy tank sits at Tier 7. The VK 45.03 is pretty solid, having better armor, and still retaining the same wicked Long88 that the Tiger I has. While it doesn't have the fire rate, DPM, or the extra health like it has, the VK is still an excellent tank, and prints credits like no tomorrow, since gold is almost unnecessary. While the KV-122 will always be my all-time favorite and signature tank, it can be extremely challenging to play. So, when I am relaxing, the VK is the way to go.


 

As for Tier 8, the VK 100.01 is a whole lot of fun. Top tier games are a farmfest....and even at Tier 9 or 10, the gun still performs really well, and the armor is outstanding.

Tier 5: KV-1 or KV-1S

Tier 6: T-150

Tier 7: T29 or Chinese IS-2

Tier 8: Caernarvon or IS-3

Tier 9: T-10 or Conqueror

Tier 10: S. Conq or WZ-111 5A

 

Would love to see a best medium list. That would be a lot more subjective.

tier 5-kv-1

tier 6-0-I/arl 44

tier 7- depends on what's your preference of armor, gun, and speed

tier 8- same as tier 7, but ill go with the vk 100 since it has a front upper plate that some tier 10s cant even pen

tier 9- haven't played enough, 

tier 10- I don't have one, but ill say type 5 because the thing is a tier 8's worst nightmare

Slightly off Topic:

Tier IV Char Bis is exactly the same as the PzB2. Yet one is a respected tech tree tank while the other is a shameless, game breaker ,preferred matchmaker, 3-5-7 debillatator. Can't wait to see how they rebalance this one.

Tiger 131 is a great heavy at six.

If I couldn't have the T-29 at seven I'd got with regular Tiger I

Tier Eight has way too many excellent ones, but if we eliminate premiums I'd pick IS-3.

Tier Nine is the T10 for me

And the IS 7 for clan battles at ten. (I don't much play tens outside of clan games)

Hm...

 

Tier IV - Type 95 Heavy. I found this tank to be great fun, and very effective against equal and lower tier foes. Whereas the Char B1 is gimmicky, the Type 95 was more well rounded and capable. 

Tier V - No Tier V heavy uptiers particularly well, but the top gun on the BDR G1B performs well in support at higher tiers, something that you can’t really say about the 122mm howitzer on the KV series. 

Tier VI - The KV-2 gets the nod here, though obviously the O-I is a close second. Death Stars are always strong in this game, and the KV-2 is the first real vehicle of that type that most players will see. It’s a smaller target than the O-I, and more flexible for that fact. 

Tier VII - This is the most difficult tier to pick from. The O-NI, IS, and IS-2s are all excellent tanks, but the T29 is still the gold standard of Tier VII heavies. 

Tier VIII - There are lots of tanks to choose from here, but ultimately nothing tops the IS-3. As a top tier tank it’s a bully, against higher tier opponents it still has the firepower to hold its own in a pack of mediums or other heavies. There aren’t many situations where the IS-3 can’t get the job done. 

Tier IX - As much as I hate to disrespect the E-75, the VK45.02b is the easy winner here in my opinion. Enough armor to shake off other heavies and TDs, and a very punchy gun. This tank is pretty much everything that I want in a heavy. 

Tier X - The Type 5 Heavy, as its one of the few heavy tanks that I actually dread facing in the game.

The Char B1 and Pz. B2 are obviously very similar but they are in no way exactly the same. The B1 gun has a little more pen, a little higher alpha, and a shorter reload (higher DPM) than the B2. It also has significantly higher shell velocity and slightly better shell dispersion. Lastly the B1 has 30 more hit-points, 3 degrees more gun depression, and a much better radio range than the B2.

 

Other than preferred matchmaking, about the only things the B2 has over the B1 is slightly better aim time and slightly better traverse & turret traverse.

According to vbaddict the top win rates in heavies in each tier starting at tier 4 are:

4: Pz B2 at 54.05%

5: KV 220-2 at 55.64%

6: KV-2 ® at 52.73%

7: O-Ni at 52.04%

8: Obj 252U at 54.47%

9: Obj 705 at 52.97%

10: VK 72.01K at 56.66% and the non-clan wars reward highest is the AMX M4 54 at 52.48%

All good choices mentioned so far.

My favourites are more based towards high carry potential(& can hold up against bottom tier MM), dpm and premium shell pen. I prefer strong turrets when possible.

4: DW 2

5: KV-1 w/ 76mm

6: KV-85

7: T29 w/ 90mm

8: T32 w/ 90mm

9: WZ 111 1 4

10: Super Conq.

Hmm. Here are the choices that I own and work best for me so far:

 

IV - Pz B2

V - KV-1S

VI - Tiger 131

VII - IS-2 Berlin

VIII - T26E5 Patriot or Lowe

IX - Can't decide. Haven't owned these long enough yet. All good too. E 75, Conqueror, Object 257

X - don't own any yet. But someday will have Super Conqueror and IS-7. E 75 line will end at Tier IX for me. Don't want the E 100.
