I mean I had nothing better to do so I watched dakillzors stream for a bit, or better him sitting in the ranked queue.

As we can clearly see heavies are not overbuffed. There is totally no particular reason why the vast majority is playing heavy tanks...

 

Discuss!

What is there left to discuss?

I think we already discussed it to death.

The only difference is that it's now tier 10 ranked battles instead of Tier 6-10 randoms.

I guess it's the easy mode in ranked. More HP + better armour means you get to live that one or two shots longer meaning you'll get those one or two shots more done compared to your MT teammates on a loss meaning you have a better chance of not losing a chevron on a loss. Then again when it's your team doing the stomping you can't kee up with the Russian meds farming all the damage so you won't get those 2-chevron wins either, but it's a trade-off many are willing to make I guess.

The number of light tanks is also quite a statement

I think map pool also favors HTs.

The MTs in the que are not Leo 1s either. I only see 907s, 430Us and sometimes Patton. Play armored tanks or GTFO.

Why stop there with this line of thinking:

 

How much would WG have to buff light tanks so they would be viable in high tier ranked games?

WG definition of balance is like

 

Captain Jack Sparrow staying up on the deck of the black pearl during a storm while drinking rhum... savy?

 

it's true...

Superconq is the most broken heavy to me, so much it makes the hd t110e5 look balanced.

Balance is fine. People compete with a great variety of vehicles which makes it really hard to point at any vehicles that are performing to well at the moment.

Even hipster tanks like the Obj. 140 can be seen from time to time, so it´s all good.

 

Here we have a nice glimpse into the ranked battles taken from skill4ltus stream. Really nice to see the lively variety of vehicles on display.

Been watching Daki's stream as well.  Surprised at the  roll out.

 

 

If 220 HT is queue the the breakdown:

  • 150 SC
  • 40 5A
  • 30 IS7/Type 5/other HT

 

SC really has all the advantages.  Turret has no real weak spot/hull is okay, -10 gun depression, top HT reliable dpm, gun stats are silly.   Only downside I ca say the SC has is the apcr premium ammo which only becomes a disadvantage if it is sniping across half the map.

You're implying the "vast majority" of players has enough brain and knowledge to understand what's best to win, so they are doing it on purpose.

I beg to differ.
