Hello :)

 

I started this thread to talk about the Best tier 9 Medium Tank in the game, so that another thread would not get too much off topic.

 

I argue that WZ-120 is the best tier 9 Medium because it has the highest Alpha.

Sure it has a long reload time but most of the time its about trading shots and with the high alpha you can put much Hurt in the enemy with on shot.

Be it a light tank driving by... PLAM! 440 HP off from that.

You see a enemy going for cover to hide and you have one chance to shoot him, 440 alpha.

You are the last tank in your team with low Hit Points and the enemy tank has 400 hit points left. 440 alpha is better than 390.

And so on. 

 

So please tell me what in your opinion is the best tier 9 Medium Tank? :)

OBJ 430, Patton 46.

First has a tougher armor and the second is more versatile (better gun and depression).

Skoda T50 is the tank I've liked the most. But tbh, most of tier9 tanks are great. Cent 7/1 was great, heaT-54 was great, Obj430 (supposedly) is great, too. People even like the stupid batchat, for reasons unknown to me.

Although many clippers are good (Standard B, Skoda T50, BC25....) I would argue that they are hard to be called best since there is a reload to account into the evaluation. Yes, they can burst their clip racking up dmg, but unless you are really good they are not the best choice for holding the spot and suppress the attack. Also, they have no armor, so that makes their play style somewhat specific which is not always the best for the occasion. That is why I prefer regular meds with some armor. T55A (read T-54 as well) and Cent 7/1 are good, but I still believe (only my opinion based on having them all) OBJ 430 is better than T55A (more armor) and Patton 46 better than Cent 7/1 (higher dpm).

Every medium except WZ-120 (no gun depression and derpy) and 430 v2 (very specific and no gun depression) and maybe Type 61 (but it's getting buffed massively).
 

Every one of them have unique strengths and gameplay, tier 9 is, in fact, most balanced tier of all.

M-46 is, IMHO, one of the most enjoyable tanks in the game, which is enough to play it if you like to play tanks and not stats.

Tier IX mediums that I actually played ;p

 

  1. AMX 30 - meh.
  2. Cent 7/1 - feels kinda like a slower M46 Patton with a better gun, definitely one of my favorites.
  3. E50 - played it a looooooong time ago, back then it was... well, simply awesome. Great gun, great armor (for a medium, ofc), great mobility. It's REALLY heavy and, surprisingly, REALLY fast - it was a great RAMMING SPEED type of machine. As for now - one of the victims of power creep, 220 pen is kinda weak when you compare it to tanks like Cent 7/1.
  4. Leopard - it's a weird one, to be honest. Great gun, great mobility, no armor whatsoever. It excels in the "sniper" role but can't really do anything else, it simply dies too quickly.
  5. M46 - again, I played it a looooooooooong time ago... but, yeah - that's my favorite tier IX medium tank. Awesome vehicle, great gun, great mobility, great turret armor - it's really versatile, can fill almost any role on the battlefield. No idea how it's now, again - played it a loooooong time ago, but it was REALLY fun tank back in the day. My first tier IX medium, definitely my favorite - Cent 7/1 came close, but a little bit short. 
  6. T-54 - jack of all trades, master of none. Nothing really "bad" about it, it's a great all rounder - good mobility, good armor, good gun. 

 

If I had to choose the best one, from the tanks I've played - T-54 wins, by a very small margin.

You're probably very lonely with that opinion, as pretty much everything else on the tank is crap. And while the Wz has the highest damage per shot of all T9 mediums, it just doesn't have the burst potential of a Skoda, BC, Standard-B or T54E1.
 

Overall I'd currently rank the Standard-B as the overall strongest T9 medium if you can play without armor. Of the classic meds, basically all except Wz, Type and 430-II are pretty strong in their own way.

I know... I'm grinding it again right now to get the k91.

Sold it when I got the 430 T10 in the old situation but I always felt bad about it.
Enjoying it very much again
