Was scrolling through my garage to find some fun tanks to play. But with many tank I had to conclude they are just so boring because they get powercreeped to hell. For example my CAX, E50M and T110E5 are just collecting dust. 

 

It's just the fact that these are tier 10's and did cost me so many credits otherwise I would have sold them already. But the same thing counts for many tanks on other tiers. A few tanks that come to my mind are the Tiger II, Indiën Panzer, KV4, ChiRi and many others. I think it's a bit sad all these tanks are in the game but no one ever plays them or just to get to the tier 10.

 

So what do you guys think are tanks that got powercreeped the most?

Half of the Japanese mediums come to mind, especially once you get to the higher tiers.

Weren't very special when they got released, and barely got any improvements since.

Oh wait, Chi-Ri Radio health buff. :facepalm:

Chi Ri Radio is OP, same with the E50M.

 

IS6 has to be the symbol of powercreep.

110, Jagpanter.

Horrible tanks, completly obsolete like all the old tank-lines.

 

But what else did you expect from a company like Wargaming LOL

What’s wrong with the E50M? It’s a pretty decent tank.

KV-4 is actually still quite good.

 

Tiger II is one of the most power crept tanks in the game at the moment while it should be an absolute beast.

 

But really, any "free" vehicle in the game that has a premium equivalent which is just blatantly better:

Mle.49 => Tiger II

T26E5 => T32

Defender => IS-3/110

Skorpion => Borsich

T34-85M => T34-85

etc. etc.

 

 

Cobra 6

That feeling when E75 is considered powercreeped... Imagine the rest in the line.... The only good think that pops into my mind ATM is the Waffe gun...

Surely there is a difference between tanks that were strong on release, and subsequently were power creeped by new arrivals, and tanks that were just never very good at all.

 

Cobra 6 has a pretty good list;

Mle.49 => Tiger II

T26E5 => T32/T34

Defender => IS-3/110

Skorpion => Borsich

T34-85M => T34-85

but also

Progetto => CDC

T44-100 => FCM 50t

112 (after buff) => 111 and IS6.

 

Japanese mediums have been mentioned but Chi-Ri was never good, merely a bully to lower tiers, STA-1 was OKish on release but Patton KR, and the buffed Cents have pwer creeped it into obscurity, Type 61 was never very good, and STB has been massively power creeped by K-91 as the best tier X sniper medium.

 

Indien Panzer has not been power creeped. It was never good enough from the start.

e50 and e50m are still decent in pubs, but in CW the over-buffed armour of the 907 after HD is the best brawler. Revert 907 armour to the SD model and the e50m (and for that matter most other tier X mediums) get a buff.

 

Tiger II was never very good, but better tanks been released has just made more people realise how weak it was.

e75 used to be a very good heavy. But it has been power creeped by the newer tanks. The wz 111 1-4 is just outright better in most respects.

E75 certainly dont feel powercrept to me, its still really competetive, unless its just being tier 9 that creates that illusion.

 

Leopard 1, E100, Tiger 2, Kranvagn, e50m, on the top of my head.

Whilee5 were broken before the cupola nerf, its simply been powercrept by things like the SQ(which is super op, borderline broken).

 

And ofcoure as mentioned above, regular tier 8s being simply worse than storebought premiums.

Quite a lot, German tree has a lot of those tanks. I feel any Chinese medium T8 and above (the T6 already has been, the T-34-1 will soon enough get powercrept by newer tanks).

KV-3, it used to be a semi-reliable heavy but now it joins the podium with the Black Prince as the worst heavy of T7. Tiger II also, 110, JPE 100 and the list goes on.

E75, power creeped? Nah

 

I never enjoyed playing such a nice heavy tank.

It has a nice gun, the ret is a bit slow, but the traverse is really good. Honestly, for a german heavy, its quite mobile.

If there is any power crepped tank, that'd be the IS-6.

I remember this thing being the bane of me many times in my noob days, now? Its a shell of its former self

its genre has changed from being a hard hitter to being a damage leech. 

 

And fun factor reduced by taking out the x-team chat. 

Only thing that goes for it is that PMs are way easy for this class then for anything else.
