I am tired of this question and I remember that when I start playing I had exactly the same question.
But, I couldn't find an exhaustive poll about heavies.
So please share your opinion in order to help some players.
Thanks.

Tier 5 - BDR - I really liked this tank, it reminds me of the Warhammer 40k Leman Russ Battle Tank :Smile-izmena:
Tier 6 - ARL 44 only played with the M6 and the ARL. I really liked the ARL, it has a great gun with 212 AP
Tier 7 - T29, almost invincible in hulldown position and a great gun
Tier 8 - Tiger 2, I Really enjoyed playing this tank, IS-3 is a great tanks aswell
Tier 9 - E75, good armour and a nice gun, haven't played any of the other tanks(used to drive the T34 Heavy as t9)
Tier 10 -T110E5, a great mobile tank, nice ammount of armour and a high ROF

Tier 5 - KV-1 - still a pretty kickass tank, good allround armor and a neat gun
Tier 6 - KV-1S - High mobility, somewhat decent armor and one of the best guns ingame (<3 russian 122mm)
Tier 7 - Tiger H - Best gun in its tier, useful armor if you know how to angle it properly and pretty high mobility for a heavy tank
Tier 8 - IS-3 - Even tho the IS3 seems to have the weakest ammo rack of the T8 heavies, the armor isn't too shabby and the BL-9 is be best Gun T8 heavies can have in this game!
Tier 9 - M103 - Great and accurate Gun along with enough h.p. to move the tank and really nice armor
Tier 10 - IS-7 - Fast and Bouncy... Gun is accurate and really hurts nothing more to say about that!

Tier V: KV-1 is still the most flexible heavy there
Tier VI: KV-2 still rules with the derp
Tier VII: Tiger P if you like sniping or KV-3 if you like brawling
Tier VIII: Imho it's pretty much Tiger II VS IS-3 depending on play style
Tier IX and X: don't have enough experience with high tiers to tell

Amazing that so many prefer the IS3 over the T32.
(people obviously have little clue how good the T32 is. :))

Best T8 heavy if you ask me.
Better Rof, better gun depression combined with an impenetrable turret makes a mean machine.

But feel free to disagree. Each to their own and all that.
Note that I like my IS3 a lot. I just like the T32 better.

Less damage, less penetration, not such good front angles, higher profile, less sides armor.
But, as you said : just my humble opinion.

T32 it's a mean machine as long as you can hide your lower hull.
If you can't....

P.S. And is3's turret is also impenetrable.

not going to disagree, but I've taken far to many T32's down with the drep on the KV2, while the IS3 takes a few more shots to do so XD

P.S. And is3's turret is also impenetrable.

The T32 has a more effective frontal hull armour and half of the IS-3's turret is a 20mm weak spot from the front (turret roof). Also the T32 is just as agile and in the right hands is much better than the IS-3 whereas the IS-3 is better for the majority of players. If though, you are used to the old american heavy line you will be an unstoppable force in tier 8 matches and also in some tier 9 matches.

p.s. You do know that the IS-3's lower hull is even larger than the T32's lower hull right?

T32 vs IS3:

Whatever the advantages the T32 has, they won't compensate for those lacking 27mm of penetration :Smile-bajan2:

Did I mention the vastly superior view range of the T32?  :wub:

let's agree to disagree. So glad not everyone and their grandmother loves the T32.
Would be boring if only one tank (or one nation) always would be 'best' for everyone

You don't have to mention anything else, cause I probably have more battles in both than you.
This poll is about the BEST, so the question it's not about what you like and what you don't like.
The question is about WHO IS BEST TIER 8 and this discussion it's stupid, at least as long as IS3 is it, as I said and probably you missed when reading : THE ONLY HEAVY used in TC tier 8.
ok???
So, please stop and cut the trolling : or if you want take you clan/team with T32s and fight in TC against any other team cause they all use IS3 and you'll see the result.
Geez...what are you 5?
Do you believe that those voting for IS3, are just stupid and don't know about the major advantages of the great T32, they are just blindly vote for IS3 and you have to came and explain what you have just discover?


P.S. You can be a better player with T32 but one thing it's sure : it's not a match for IS3.
Look at my is3 : average damage, frags per battle and so on and please show me a T32 that can do this.

Not sure why you act so overly aggressive really.

Feel free to think the IS3 is best. I think you are wrong. It is different and better at different things.
This also means it is worse at different things.
(also note that you do not have more battles in T32 than I have. It almost seems as if I like the tank better while you prefer the IS3)

And for the record; in our company battles our clan uses a mix of IS3 and T32.

As for your personal attacks (trolling/stupid/5 yrs etc) and uncouth remarks?
It shows more about your maturity than mine.

Have a nice day. :)

As a whole I think this thread is rather pointless, mainly because everyone have different experiences in each tank and some are better in certain tanks while others are not.

I am not the best Maus player in the world, far from it, but I still think it is one of the most fun heavies for me. Other say it suck, I say it is good. So saying that "since the T110E5 gets most votes it is the best" might be somewhat right, but again somepeople might still not agree perhaps because they dislike the tank or is just better in some other tanks.

Like the constant hate on the T95. People dislike it because it is slow and reloads slow, and yet it is one of the most played tanks in my garage and one of the more fun tanks I have played.

It all comes down to a matter of taste and player skill, not exactly how good a tank is. But that is just my personal oppinion.

source: http://www.vbaddict....type=3&nation=0

average xp: T32= 736 vs  IS3= 671
average survived: T32= 35,4% vs IS3= 33,6%
won/lost ratio: T32= 53,7% vs IS3= 51,9%
average damage dealt: T32= 1,314.3 vs IS3= 1,287.9

But feel free to label me a troll, stupid and a five year old. Like you did a few posts ago.



PS; the feeling you have right now is one of "I wuz owned" :Smile_veryhappy:

Agree, 99%.
As an example, in tier 7, Tiger P is good, I think T29 it's the best, but as I just said, Tiger P it's a good match.
In the right hand even IS and KV3 are pretty good, but one thing it's sure : you can't say that AMX M4 it's the best tier 7 heavy, right?
I believe that the same thing happens with IS3 and T32 comparison, simply because T32 has the gun of a tier 7 with better rof, you just can't compare them and draw the conclusion : t32 it's better....

Very good young padawan but still have much to learn :
let's compare IS3 vs T32 :
average exp IS3 : 826 - average exp T32 : 824
max destroyed in battle : 10 - max destroyed in battle : 6
frags per battle : 1.5 (1.4831) - frags per battle : 1.0 (1.069)
hit ratio : 79% - hit ratio : 76%
476 battles, damage : 768,871 - 359 battles, damage : 459,135
average damage per battle : 1615 - average damage per battle : 1278
medals : 5 boelter, 8 top gun, 36 sniper, 12 steel wall - medals : 0 boelter, 3 top gun, 30 sniper, 10 steel wall
master gunner : 26 - master gunner : 18
sharpshooter : 60 - sharpshooter : 52

And imho these are most important :
average damage per battle : 1615 - average damage per battle : 1278
medals : 5 boelter, 8 top gun, 36 sniper, 12 steel wall - medals : 0 boelter, 3 top gun, 30 sniper, 10 steel wall
frags per battle : 1.5 (1.4831) - frags per battle : 1.0 (1.069)

So : Either IS3 it's much better or you don't know how to play with T32....choose pls.
