I have to say the Chrysler K has moved to numero uno on my list. It has plus armor plus plus mobility and an average gun that is fairly comparable to that on the Lowe. Combine it’s superior armor and mobility it is a beast able to run with the meds and can still slog it out with the heavies.

I agree.  The Chrysler K is built for being a wrecking ball against mediums.  These are not a tank to play passively and should be used aggressively as often as possible to terrorize reds that are not expecting your mobility.

...nah the VK. 45.02’s Armor couldn’t deflect a spitball. 

 

I once shot a VK4502A in the front of the hull with my Leopard PT A's 105mm L7 gun. I could have sworn I saw the shell over penetrate the front armor, go out the back armor, and promptly exit the map Black Goldville and travel its way all the way to Copperfield where it oneshotted some unfortunate bastard in a bush.

Was it another VK45A?

The VK4502 A tries to do everything well, but only ends up doing it decently.  It is almost like a German E5.  I stand behind that ranking in the full potato division.

Very Good DGM. Hope see you soon and with other tiers reviews. (Tier 7 would be cool) :)

Hey everyone!  It's been awhile.  The forums are seemingly less busy, but looking through my previous BEST rankings that were enjoyed over a year ago, I thought it would be a fun write to do them over again.  The meta has changed.  New tanks have been introduced.  Buffs.  Nerfs.  The general decline in the quality of play.  In the first iteration of this specific tier and class, I said that tier 8 was largely biased towards heavy tanks.  That is still true, however the pallet of flavor for the class has grown significantly. 

 

I will provide my own thoughts on the "best" tier 8 heavy tanks and I apologize in advance if your favorite tier 8 heavy is at the bottom of the list. This is purely my opinion, and you are free to put in your input.  Hope you enjoy! (See spoiler)

 

See how things have changed! Found below is the original list for this specific topic, written over a year ago!

*Note: Reviews are done in the style of WoTLabs.  

 

What do you think is the best tier 8 heavy?  Let me know!

I don't see the problem with the WZ-111. I've managed to secure a 56% WR in it. My only problem is the 5° of gun depression, but I can work with that. :)

Ehhh wouldn't it be more like a German M48? And I agree, it's not really a very good tank, and you rarely if even see them.

I haven’t played the caernevaon in years but hated it back then. I’m suprised that you really didn’t care for the buffed Black Prince But seem to love it’s succesor. Are the playstyle that different now? It must have been buffed at some point because it wasn’t very good in its original state.

Great review. Glad to see my AMX M4 mle 49 rated so highly. I figured it must be good because I do pretty well in it. Some of the best money I have spent in WOTB. And thank you for making note of the plight of the T-32. It has been seriously power crept and mostly forgotten by WG. Maybe they will read this and show it some love. 

ANOTHER COMMENT OR QUESTION BROUGHT TO YOU BY A BLISSFULLY ABOVE AVERAGE PLAYER.

The Caern got an ROF  and I believe a gun handling buff late 2016 or early 2017. This made this formerly underfunded tank a pretty strong contenteder, at least in certain situations (ridge line fighting).

Good to see the IS-3 Defender still ranked among the best. So glad I managed to pick that tank up for free during the event.

I bought the crates and got the WZ-112-2 and my sorry butt is going at 54.57% win rate so it must work somewhat....but then I prefer heavy tanks and pretty much all of my level eight HT are at or above 50%
