Hello tankers!

 

I finally compiled all the results from the last poll on which non-premium regular tech tree tanks per tank class & tier are considered must-haves by you the community. Note: I never asked to vote for the best / OP tanks! Results below:

 

Posted Image

 

My idea behind it all last year was 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. So last year I started to wonder what the endgame is to me, and I must admit I dont have one. I am an ok'ish player, and probably will never be a 'good' player, so stuff like 3-marking everything is a bridge too far.

 

So, I was (and still am) looking for some inspiration what tank lines / specific tanks to grind for, because they are iconic, fun, unique, historic, good for missions, so ugly you have to have them, nostalgia, etc etcand make that (part of) my goals in the game. 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)".

 

And seeing as we have had some new lines & tanks added to the game since Summer last year, I decided to re-do the poll (of course, the moment I started the initial poll, WG released the SWE MT line...).

 

I will also drop a link to this in the newcomers section, since I still see a lot of new(b) players asking what lines to play / grind. 

 

EDIT: TL/DR

LT: German LTs up to T5, French autoloaders & USSR LT line up to T10 seem to represent the top 3 across the tiers well, with a couple of specialist / meme tanks like the T49 here and there

MT: UK line up to T8 and USSR line up to T10 did well in the poll. Personally I have to rebuy the P26/40, since I think I skipped that one and I am wondering why it is recommended.

HT: UK higher tier line comes highly recommended. From an historic / meme standpoint, I did miss some votes for the Churchills / BP though. :trollface: Also USSR Obj.277 and IS-7 line is basically in line what I hear experienced players tell newbies to play, so no real surprise they scored well across the tiers. Obviously KV-2 and T29 considered must-haves seems logical to me

TD: UK Turreted TD line is well represented in several of the top 3s, which surprised me tbh. And of course the USSR TD lines. Having played the SU100, SU-152 and ISU-152 due to TotT this month, I can understand why! 

SPG: US line still is king, even though the "none-line" is a good challenger to the throne;)

Great table. Saved. Useful instrument for planning garage expansions.

 

I'm only doing three grinds at the moment, actively.
The P.44 Pantera, from the table, will be the next for me, after 100k XP.

Outside the table: UDES 14 Alt 5 and Hotchkiss EBR.

SU-100 is such an easy TD to carry in, even in +2. Hellcat is not as great as it once was. As many here have pointed out time and time again. Thus I'm surprised to see it up there. But it's still an iconic tank vs a good one. So it might be more on that vs how effective it is as a reason for it's position. I suspect it's why Bert is up there along with the M44. No one plays that because it's effective anymore. But it still has that old meme over it.

Got to like all the 'nones' for the arty, popular class :D

 

Have to say that probably more than half of the 1st places there I don't really like.

@undutchable - thanks a lot and glad you've done it once again :)

 

It's nice to see both the better tanks (including the sealclubbers-supreme) as well as most of the unique ones on the list.

I'm not surprised that arty has mostly none at position 1 - there are very few unique arties - most play the same and lots of people just hate them without playing them for any reasonable length of time.

And it also shows part of the current meta: mobile tanks with armor and/or good guns are trendy

The reason behind the poll was never to ask what the best / OP tanks were, but fun, historic, etc tanks that people should have in their garage. Maybe after the summer I will start a new one asking for the best / OP tanks considered by the community.

Exactly, meme tanks should be on this list!

Not enough ppl voted for those tanks. Thx for mentioning those two you felt were missing from the list. If you have the time, would you like to comment why they should have been voted in?

Tier-5 AMX ELC is only a shadow of what it was. As is tier-6 Hellcat. I don't consider any a must-have. IMO both are more in a must-get-rid-of. :( Damn WG! :angry:

Ah, but I think its because of the nostalgia people have for it. Like owning a racecar from the 60's that doesnt keep up with todays racecars but still holds that special place in people's hearts and becomes part of the collector's items cult. Especially when the company re-release a modern version of it; puritans will stick to the 60's version in stead of the newer one with all the added modern techniques, better fuel performance etc.

Poll was never about wincurves or being the best. Why do you think it got voted in? What do you think are its strong points from a "iconic, fun, unique, historic, good for missions, so ugly you have to have them, nostalgia" standpoint?
