    Elimination: Tier 9 - 2018

    The best tank is the tank with the highest performance when all tanks are played to perfection. The highest potential literally results in the actual best tank because when all tanks are played perfectly this one outperforms. I genuinely can’t put it simpler, and I know I’m right because it keeps happening with consistency. As your performance gets better your teammates/enemies start to matter less. It’s not a one man game, but your WR/DPG is your own. Enough games paint a decent picture and you’ve been likely getting both ends of the stick regarding MM, and as you start singlehandedly winning games everything but your performance/tank capability is irrelevant because you want to win as much as possible in a randomised environment where the only thing you can truly control is you and your tank. So those are the things that matter. You even had this exact meta in NA CW before back when E5 was just so much better than other tanks. NA CW was 15v15 E5s brawling it out most of the time because it was simply the tank that gave you the best shot at winning +1 T-54 - 3 VKB - lower plate nerf was not deserved and it made the tank go from niche to shit

    XM551 Sheridan - Tubby Leopard

    It's been a while since I've gone derping. I just mounted the BFG on the Sheridan for the first time, and I was rewarded this gem in the first outing. The joy of this 1-shot on a full HP camping Charioteer at ~300 m while zipping along at 60 kph is hard to put into words. Nuked a clicker and got some French TD butt in the corner afterwards.

    Basically, just vote on what is good/bad for you and not what is good/bad for the average.

    Elimination: Tier 9 - 2018

    Well, when it comes to this a friend of mine managed to 76%/4.9k with tortoise and almost 5k with E-100 and it's not like those tanks were hidden gems or shit like that. Idk how he managed to do it. All I know, he's crazy in this game. And we wouldn't define those 2 as top tanks tier for tier in the meta. It's like Carbon coming and telling 260 is still top because he can still output 5k with it. There are clearly better tanks overall. About the votes, why you wanna instantly go for the best tank rn. If that's the case just delete every tank from the list but T-54/Conquer/WZ 111 and T-10, because the winner will be there for sure. I thought voting for one tank would mean it has certain potential. I'm more interested to see where tanks like the ST-I or Conway are gonna end placed. We all already know which tanks are gonna be in top.

    What I was saying is that tank viability is subjective, for half the playerbase the T95 is probably the best tank even though many don't like it and those who can pull the winrates to make it fall off clearly will do better in other tanks will keep making it so that votes are based on experience and purely subjective. It's an elimination game of what you think is the best tank, not what you know is. Going by statistics isn't a good idea when it comes to the real viability either, the top of the top is such a small part of the playerbase (10-20 people on EU basically when I stopped) that them being huge outliers won't affect the stats even for super unis alone. Super uni cut-off is at 2900, and people are pulling literally double that. That's quite a bit of a higher standard where the same general ideas don't apply in the same way. When you reach the point that you don't have to think about what tank you're playing and how to play it but playing the map and situation alone, things change a lot. Mobility value goes through the roof but gun stats are still on top. Armour is valued more the lower you go, the thing is that super unicum thresholds are so far below how good the best of the best actually are, so armour value at super uni is still high. Armour value at 5-5,5k DPG standards are much less even if they still exist. SConq isn't ahead in WR despite being objectively the best tank for literally the entirety of the playerbase at T10 that tryhards with how favoured everything is for it - but other tanks with mobility beat it at the very top in both DPG and WR with SConq around 70% and RUmeds/M48 among others and even 50B at 75%. Even if it's very few people to call it real statistics, the same thing happens for enough tanks among the same players to not be a coincidence which is why I've always thought that these treads with subjective thoughts are interesting. You could just pull a vBAddict avg for a general idea (where the IS-4 would be ridiculously good which no one in their right mind would ever play today) of what tanks perform well but it doesn't show what the absolute best players perform the best in - which is the real thing when it comes to "viability". I have absolutely no problem with people voting for what they like, but it isn't the best because how can you know what's best for anyone else but yourself if you're not the best player around? King of the hill decides what's the best because they play the best so their results are the ones that matter.

    The issue with this thread here is that there is no scope besides 'your best' and 'your worst'. This makes this thread an entirely subjective view on what you think is the best and worst tier 9. If we go by what is the best and worst for the average WoT player, we'd end up with tanks like the T95 being on top which is fair enough because it is a very powerful tank in the game right now. Hell, the Mauschen hasn't even gotten a mention yet and that is also one of the most powerful tanks. Can we just go back to upvoting what is the best and worst tank for ourselves instead of debating about how powerful a tank currently is in this meta? There would be no real point to this thread if it were just a "which is the objectively best tank in the current meta".

    Regarding validity of opinion and official forum level you all know that highest WN8 wins so what I say is literally law not even joking on an equally serious note is that tank viability is subjective, t54 will be the best t9 hands down for the best player because it is the most versatile while always being relevant while tanks like the t10 are more forgiving but still rewarding to play for people who arent at a point where they dont really make mistakes anymore keep going down the ladder of brain activity and different tanks will be the superior ones. Tort/JT are insanely good tanks for the average but very few top players will ever even play them seriously because they don’t fit the optimal playstyle. The more generalised the better the higher you go, and in certain cases some interesting niches as well, but simplicity of high alpha/HP and not having to constantly look for shots is such a basic thing that boost the avg performance by so much more. But ppl upvoting light tanks are legit delusional lol like hf with that dice roll while i go solo carry with much higher probability in literally every other medium/heavy in tier
