Hey tankers,

Some of you may remember I did this poll last year, and I have received some requests to re-do it since then the Polish and Italian nations and the French wheeled vehicles have been added to the game. So here we go!

Like last year I am interested in what you consider "must-have" non premium tanks per tier and per tank class (yes, arty included :child:), whether for historical reasons (Tiger 1 / Sherman, etc), derp reasons (KV-2), looks-so-ugly-its-cute reasons, for completing missions, or vbaddict-tells-me-it-earns-the-most-credits reasons.
DISCLAIMER: This poll is NOT meant to be about which tanks are the "best" / OP, but if you want to vote that way, be my guest.

My idea behind it all was (and still is) that some players consider owning all (relevant) T10 tanks as the endgame, others view 3-marking all tanks as their endgame, or Ace-tanking all the tanks, etc etc. Ultimately, there is no endgame, except what we set for ourselves personally. I have passed the 10k games played mark and I still don’t have a Tier 10 tank – I am struggling in Tier 9 and want to do better at that tier first.

So I started to wonder what the endgame is to me, and I must admit I dont have one. I am getting ok at this game, but 3-marking everything is a bridge too far, as well as reaching unicum status. So, my idea behind the question & polls was maybe to give me some inspiration what tank lines / specific tanks to grind for, whether from a historical perspective, for personal missions, uniqueness etc and make that (part of) my goals in the game.

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. And who knows, maybe I will have inspired some of you in a same fashion, especially some of you new(er) players who might wonder: "what nation / line do I grind (next)".

I will start with Tier 4 and make new posts for the other tiers all the way up to Tier X. Please also pick one of the tanks you voted for and comment on why you put it in the must-have list. A few weeks after I have posted the Tier 10 poll, I will collect the data and create a top-5 poll per tank class & tier for you to vote on.

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 and thank you all who cast your vote!

Except for the B1 which was not as suffering as I thought It'd be, I would not touch a single heavy at that tier ever, but that is my opinion.

 

I have a large dislike for tier IV tanks :P

Random at this tier can be VERY random indeed!

Lights:

I really like the Ke-Ho. Very nice tank. Not sure if they will ever add higher tier lights but if they don´t and you are bored with it at least you will have a good medium crew.

The Luchs is also a must have. Hide, clip stuff, hide. It is useful to practice that and the ammo has great pen.

 

Mediums not sure.

Would have answered the Tilly in the past but has been powercreeped a bit.

Only one i still play of them is the Chi-He occasionally, mainly as a crew trainer.

 

Heavies.

DW2 it´s easily the best of the 3. And Bulldog recommends it too. 

 

Tank Destroyers

Hetzer is a great assault td

Marder 38T has a great gun

M8A1 is great (but a poor mans T67?)

T40 might be nice too but i haven´t played that one in ages.

 

SPGs

None but if you have to pick one the french tier 4 is ok and the Panzerswaffel IVB has a turret so it is probably the best one.

 

(The one in the list i have must have some day is the Birch Gun but that is more for it´s unique gameplay not because it is any good).
