Hey tankers,

 

Dont know if this has been done before, but I would be interested in what you consider "must-have" non premium tanks per tier and per tank class (yes, arty included:izmena:). There are just so many tanks in WoT, and I know I will have a hard time to 'get them all', even if I wanted to; maybe some nations don't interest me, or some lines I suck (more) at. But maybe my bias towards to the Chinese line might make me miss out on a gem at tier 4, and this topic might open my eyes to it. Also, I enjoy the masochistic challenge of playing Tier 8s (both premium and grind), but sometimes I just want to enjoy the game at low-/mid-tiers but still have a goal / grind in mind (apart from git gud of course ;)).

 

I will start with Tier 4 and make new posts for the other tiers as the week goes by all the way up to Tier X (depending how successful this poll is).

 

Now, the term "must-have" differs per person, so there is no set definition; whatever Tier 4 LT/MT/HT/TD/SPG you think everyone should have in their garage, whether for historical reasons, derp reasons, OP reasons, looks-so-ugly reasons, vbaddict-tells-me-it-earns-the-most-credits reasons, its all up to you. Please also pick one of the tanks you voted for and comment on why you put it in the must-have list. 

 

Note: Maybe too much to hope for, but please refrain from negatively commenting on each other's highlighted tank. This is not intended to be a thread to discuss the pen & alpha of tank A vs tank B and thus why you think tank B is better etc. If you disagree with someone, just close the thread and read something else. GL & HF!

 

EDIT: Added "none" as a voting option to all classes

HT: out of the three non premium, B1 is the best, hands down. It's a poor man's Pz. B2.

MT: would be Matilda, but since the Italian tree the winner for me is P26/40. This HE shell, omg.

LT: M5A1 fun to play but Luchs seems to be a strong competitor.

TD: Hetzer is the derpest.

Arty: No.

I'm not really sure I can say any Tier IVs are really "must-haves", since it's Tier IV. You can see +2 MM But not -2, tanks have so little health and the standard of gameplay often consists of the "fodder" (newbies or long-term players who haven't really learnt anything and still continue to triple+R To the enemy base after 30k games) killing themselves off until it's just like one or two sealclubbers on both teams and then the few fodder tanks that were perhaps either smart, or inept enough that they stayed so far away from any of the yolorush prior that they are actually still alive (though no worries, they'll surely throw their full health Matilda away against a single shot AMX 40 Somehow).

 

Only things worth it IMO Are probably Luchs for meme 300 Clip potential, or Matilda for rather obvious reasons that need not even be specified. The only problem with the latter of course is it's slow as heck so if your team consists of mostly the former type of fodder and you end up 10 Tanks down within 2 Minutes and you still haven't made it anywhere you can do damage, though in that case you're in the Matilda anyway so you can just farm damage on the enemy fodder respectively.

My choices would be following

HT: none

MT: Matilda, possibly Pz.Kpfw. III Ausf. J or the Pz.Kpfw. IV Ausf. D

LT: Luchs, M5A1 Stuart, Ke-Ho, Covenanter

TD: M8A1, possibly T40

SPG: Pz.Sfl. IVb

 

Of those listed I have all the light tanks I've listed and have considered repurchasing the M8A1, Matilda and possibly even the Pz.Sfl. IVb.

As LT I pick the AMX40 because of the armour. But to be honest, as a real LT I would suggest the Covenanter with the stock gun. Less than 2s reload, 78/121mm pen and great agility. Really nice. :)
