So, as the MM screws over t8 tanks giving them pretty much only t10 games and t10 tanks get mostly CW games full of t10 tanks, tier 9 remains the only tier with workable MM. Dont really play other tiers apart occasional t6 sealclubbing... 

 

What are the keeper tanks for t9 for you guys? Any recommendations? E50 and 46 Patt. Are quite obvious choises but their playstyles are a bit too similar to their t10 counterparts that I own...

 

Amx 30 and ST I have crossed my mind, amx 30 even getting buffed... 

 

Got T55A so T54 aint really that appealing. Just looking for tanks with different playstyles. Class doesn't matter, as long as its not arty.

I'm liking the 430ii a lot, tempted to keep it when I'm done grinding it.

 

Edit: Funny how the day I post this is the day where I get so pissed off with it that I rage sell it. Its not a bad tank, but it does get some crippling weaknesses that really start to get [edited]annoying when you get the same sodding maps over and again that put you at a disadvantage.

T-10 is a really nice T9 tank.
T54e1 if you are ready to use plenty of premium ammo.

After the upcoming T-54 buffs, will the T-54 be much stronger than T-55A? It has already stronger hull, but not sure about the turret currently.

T-54:

  • D-54: accuracy increased from 0.39 to 0.33, aim time reduced from 2.9s to 2s, reload speed increased from 8.2s to 8.5s
  • D-10T2S: accuracy reduced from 0.35 to 0.39, aim time increased from 2.3s to 2.5s, reload time reduced from 7.8s to 7.4s

I myself very much like T54E1 (full gold), Leopard PTA, T-10 (why run T-54 if there is T-10) and.......... wait............ M53/M55.

Good tanks. T30, E75, Skoda, 430II. Only would have to grind the E75. 430 might have the most appeal it being so different. Though its a money sink like the rest t9 ruski meds. Not wanting to renew prem account until the MM is fixed it might be too expensive...

Conq and ST1 come to mind first because they are in many ways different, perhaps even better than the tier X.

 

I also kept T55A, Leo PTA (despite being so similar to the tier X), T49 (for giggles), 13-90 (because it works in the tier 9 variant so much better), T-30 (done most TD missions in it) .

 

I have the Skoda T50 but havent played it yet (need free XP!) and I intend to get WZ 111 1-4 back plus the AMX 30 and I know both are decent. Nothing else particularly springs to mind although I did surprisingly enjoy Jagdtiger and I will get the Obj 704 to try at some point bu I am useless in TDs. Obj 430 II probably another I enjoyed but turret at the back I do find odd..

Skoda, amazing gun ! probably the best out there tier by tier. T54 a monster. Also love t10, and really looking forwards Amx 30 and t30

Good question, I have over 20 tier IX at the moment, but none really stands out as keepers. Although I enjoy most of them, none really stands out as keepers (if keeping it means training a new crew for it after having bought the tier X). I think AMX 30 prototype, Skoda T50, Conqueror, E50 and T30 might be my biggest contenders of being a "keeper". Oh, and maybe AMX 13 90.

How about WZ-120? I'm gonna get it so I have an easier grind on the heavies.

As you already mentioned, E50 is probably best T9 tank in terms of enjoyment (atleast for me). Patton should be close.

 

Others are more or less about preference. AMX 30 is keeper for me as non-armoured med. Leo PTA is close to it. Both great tanks for medium lovers. But who know how AMX will look like after rebalance.


 

Autoloaders are class of its own, as it need specific approach. If you like them, Skoda for support or BC 25AP for scout role. But to me they need focus and concentration, which is not good for tank you want to play for enjoyment.


 

Heavies are same - E75 is still king. While ST-I is great is some respects, E75 still pack best combination of mobility, armour and gun.


 

But if you look for some unique playstyle, I think you will be dissapointed. Generally every T10 is evolution of T9, simply better. Only exception might be T54E1 as it is kinda unique med, but not that good to be keeper.

To be honest, most tier 9 tanks are sweet. In fact, tier 9 is the way to go right now. Leopard PTA is your best bet, it is really potent and has high skill floor. Conqueror and t-10 are fantastic tanks, and skoda t50 is close to broken (tier X tvp really struggles with pen though)

WZ 120 is weird tank, its kinda miss or hit. The combination of heavy gun and med mobility makes it unique playstyle, but the problem is - to do heavies stuff you need armour and hp pool. Which you dont have. To do meds stuff you need gunhandling, which you dont have. So you cant do what proper meds do, like sniping and snapshoting over ridge, and you cant do what heavies do, aka brawling. You need to be in specific position to shine. But lets face it, dealing 500 dmg to unaware opponents is simply fun no matter what. Plus current meta is lot about trading, where WZ 120 can outshine T10 meds. So I enjoyed mine, but imho you cant guess if it gonna be your keeper..its so weird you have to try it first.

ST-I, E50, M46, T-54, T-10, T-55A (well, d'oh), Waffle IV. I don't have tanks like Skoda T50 or 13 90 or Conq so cant comment on those.

 

I sold E75 because its nice armor goes bye bye as soon as people load premium shells... while ST-I just laughs hulldown.

 

M103 is just plain meh.
