Thx for voting so far guys! Its been interesting seeing the results and your comments on your picks! Keep it up with the tier 9 list and cast your vote for what you consider to be the "must-have" non premium tanks per tank class to have in your garage!

 

Only one more tier to follow after this one. ;)

Conqueror and AMX 30, not much else needed for tier 9 IMO.

Too many meds to choose one really, M46, AMX 30p, E50, Skoda T50 and if you are a good player the Standard B.

As HT, ST-I get my vote: strong turret, good hull and a gun that do it's best on close range. I also pick the E75 and T-10, cause are good tanks you should not understimate when meet them. Conqueror is a bit overrated IMMO: armour is not that good for an HT, except turret front...

You're basically saying that the gun of the ST-I is trash, right ;) I've not played e75 yet, but that one does really appeal. 

 

For good players the dpm of the old conqueror was what made it so good. Now it's a bit boring for me.

Not really trash. Maybe a bit of a let down on long range, but the tank itself is basically a close range brawler, so the gun works pretty well in it. Got a lot of small weackspots with it! :)

 

About conqueror I agree. IMO before the change it was more unic with bad hull armour but good dpm.

T-54 light is very underestimated .... best t9 light tbh, most flexible.

ST-I and 1-4 are amazing.

Skoda T50 is hard to get to, but totally worth it (and the amx 30 proto has horrible grind but worth it).

Yep I voted T54lwt as well and for me the AMX 1390 is a close second (adimittedly it plays very differently to the Ruski but great in it's own way and the tier 10 it leads to is probably the best amongst the garbage that is tier 10 light tanks because of the autoloader). 

 

I suspect the Troll-49 is doing so well because there are too many derp loving noobs that play that tank (90mm all the way derp trolls :P :hiding: ).

The E 75 is the only tier 9 heavy I still have. It doesn't excel in anything measurable, not exceptionally fast, gun can be quite painful and it's NOT a sniper gun like the Tiger II can be, alpha is quite substantial but nothing spectacular these days either. 

 

The power of the E 75 is that it's not bad at anything either. The armor can REALLY hold up, the parts where HEAT is autopen are tiny, the lower and upper glacis bounce prem rounds all day if angled well. The gun is as said somewhat lackluster, but 490/246 on a, for close range, accurate gun is good. The DPM is not incredible but it can trade well. 

 

I really, really love my E 75. It's arguably the only tier 9 tank that can really rely on its armor, T95 aside. I bought it when I wanted the E 100 but I ended up hating the E 100 and wanting the E 75 back.

 

And, personal thing, it's among the best looking tanks in the game. It looks mighty.

@topic: tier 9 is my favorite tier so there are some absolute gems here. I narrowed it down to the ones I actually played on live, and ended up with:

 

LT: 13 90 + WZ-132A

This one is hard, as the WZ-132A is the only LT I've played after the LT buff/nerf. My pre-'nerf' list would never be able to get narrowed down to only 2 back when the Ru 251, T49, T-54 ltwt and 13 90 were tier 8, because they were so incredibly fun!

Because it seems like the T49 and Ru 251 didn't really survive their powers after, I could narrow it down to two.

So while I haven't played the 'new' 13 90, it still seems like a nice little tank. The autoloader is nice, the speed is great and the low profile makes it a great spotter.

The WZ-132A is the one I actually played, and it's like the tier 7 WZ-131 used to be, but with a bigger gun and overall better survivability. I liked it a lot.

 

MT: Centurion 7/1 + T-54 + Skoda T 50

The T-54 has been enhanced lately, making it not the gem it used to be. That was my first tank I did really well in, because it was ace. It's arguably lackluster atm.

Centurion 7/1 is a peculiarity of mine. Not many people love it the way I do, but I like it. The gun has great alpha/pen, the DPM since its buff has been quite decent and the turret can hold up quite well. A 'hidden' feature is the amazing shell velocity, which makes sniping easy.

Skoda T 50 is one I didn't particularly fall in love with, but it's a good allrounder. And the autoloader can be quite lethal in the right hands.

 

HT: E 75 + WZ-111 1-4 + T-10

For the E 75, read my novel above

WZ-111 1-4 and T-10 are basically the same tank, strength wise. Mediocre armor with a great turret, speed, and a big punch gun. While the WZ-111 1-4 hasn't got bad DPM, you notice that the 490 vs 440 on the T-10 makes sure the T-10 is really the DPM dealer. 

 

TD: Jagdtiger + Object 704

My heart would put the T30 here but its unreliability makes it quite rageworthy at times. The Jagdtiger is definitely the best allrounder imo. The only downside is the lack of turret. It's not extremely slow, the armor is usable and the gun is legendary.

The 704's gun is even more legendary, but the machine itself is quite lackluster, especially on the armor front.

 

SPG: none, I have played only one (212A) and I HATED it.

Nice to hear this. I'm almost at E75 on E100 grind and I'm quite looking foreward to get it.

But I won't say it's the only one that can rely on armour. There is actually a quite good numer of tanks that can: E75, ST-I, little Maus, 705, T95, Conqueror, T30, AMX M4... it's just different the way you use armour. :)

Try to have enough free xp ready to get top turret and gun asap. The difference is really huge.

T9 one of the most balanced tiers overall in my opinion and E75 is a keeper. As polestar wrote not superior in anything but good enough everywhere makes it as good as it is.

Because they are very good tanks and they also have preferential MM my vote is :

LT: all

MT: all except Leopard Pt A

HT: all except AMX 50 120

TD: all (probably without Obj. 263 which offers a disgusting game experience nowadays)

 

But due to the poll limitations I voted for T-54 ltwt, T-54, Obj. 257, Jagdtiger, and of course, none.
