Well probably until tomorrow, or the next day:D

 

OP tanks,it seems like they are all OP nowadays, I seem to have a lot of them, not all, but a lot. So many in fact I do not need to buy anymore premiums, now for me that is excellent news

 

Just bought back the T26E5 today for another bash at it, apparently it was, is, used to be, OP I think the term OP is just a naughty little hook to get us all excited

 

So what truly OP tanks do you have, and why do you think they are OP?

It's Sunday, so time for pointless threads, so just be nice and join in some fun:D

I played a few ones on my way through the techtrees, but I doubt that I have even a single OP tank in the garage. I never cared about those things in the games I played...

The term OP (overperforming) does tend to get thrown around lightly alot. To me an OP tank is a tank that overperforms for the general populace of players, across all skill levels (the Defender is the best known example)

 

Tanks that overperform for high skill players, but underperform for low skill players are not OP tbh, because people often forget this: high skilled players are rare. Meeting two high skilled people in the same tank is super-rare, so the WR's of such tanks get inflated for high skill players.

 

Tanks that underperform for high skill players but overperform for low skill players aren't OP either to me. Because it means that the tank has drawbacks that you can exploit when you got a better grasp of the game, or simply drawbacks that hold it back from winning more games.

Oh god, the arch-nemesis of all Defenders. :ohmy:

 

On lower tiers:

-i think T67, Type 64 and T34-85M are really nice. Not sure if T67 got changed/nerfed recently because i did not played it in a while...

 

On tier 8, probably the most played tier in the game:

-i think no tier 8 tank (premium or not) can be considered OP, because of the MM that puts you against tier 9&10 tanks most of the time. 

- good premiums are Skorpion, T26E5, Projetto and that chinese td probably (i have not played it)

 

On tier 10:

- not sure if anything can be considered OP but good tanks for sure can be considered: Obj.907, Obj.430U, Obj.277, Obj.268-4, IS-7, WZ-1115A, S.Conqueror, TVP, Type 5, T110E3, T57, Bat-Chat.

- best lights T100lt and AMX 13-105

- for those who like arty T92 and Conq.GC are probably the best

- also FV4005 for the lolz

I'd argue that the T-34-2 is actually quite a bit better than the VTU due to the much smaller profile.

The Defender is so over hyped, one wrong angle and it is curtains,I'm told you play it like the IS 3 but then you cannot point your pike nose at the enemy like the IS 3, so if you cannot point at the enemy or angle your tank, what do you do? As of now it is on reserve trying to get the x5 XP on this thing is driving me nuts, having a short game break, then I an going to go full berserker on my tier 6 heavies, shoot prammo like a Dinger:trollface:

Really, have we met before?:D

 

I tread warily as i know those who call themselves noob are nothing of the sort, I have tooned with one or two forumites and it is usually fun, although their skill levels scare the crap out of me because I'm literally am so bad, it is now out in clan joke. Always remember if you think you are bad, I will make you shine:D

 

TS helps a great deal if we toon, but i can work around it if you don't have it:great:

Its utterly Meh

 

Back to Skoobys point

 

Th most OP tanks I have or have owned are 

 

The TOG3, because its a TOG peple try and kill it thinking it'll be a pushover but they fail to realsise the gun on it is fast and powerful. I once slayed 12 in this behemoth

 

Mauenbracher Because its basically a TOG at tier 8 with an awesome HE gun that defeats side scraping it'll always dmg always!

 

Now a platoon of 3 TOGs or 3 Mauenbracher's would be almost a guaranteed win.

 

I did 2 T95's with a feind and we have 86% wins combined using a T95.(on alt)

 

I can only imagine a 3 T95 platoon's effect on the enemy teams moral and laugh wildly

 

One day ittl become a reality as where training a padwan on this line!

Hmm op tanks in garage:

 

T67

Type 59 (if it's considered op after the buffs, I think it's ok)

Object 430

Object 430u

Object 140

AMX 13 57 (op in my eyes)

Skorpion G

Object 252u (I don't like it though)
E-25 (perhaps its glory has faded)

Type 64 (t6 t67 with better gun handling/view range)

No this would end with 3 burnt out tanks about 10 meters from the spawn point where they made their stand. Big slow weak sided heavies are not really the game meta, are they?

Depends if you like to play them or not, not yet been in a platoon of TOG's, or a full toon of Maurbrechers, sounds like crazy fun to me though:D
