ZebraUp has the correct opinion and superior taste. The VK 36.01H  is the best Tier 6 heavy.

The PzIV s. is the best tier 6 medium.

 

There are no valid arguments to support anything other than these scientific facts.

 

Also, KV-2 drivers are mostly inbred.

 

ZebraUp has superior taste in animals.  Horses are dumb, but put stripes on that mother and you've really got something!

 

I've never had the PzIVs, and I've heard great things about having it.  They are fun to shoot with the ARL.


 

If it burns when I pee, does that mean I wouldn't be a good fireman?

According to Blitzstars, the Victory is 55.68%, the Bromwell is 55.08%, the ARL is 54.57%, the VK36.301H is 49.83% [maybe negatively influenced by pre-buff numbers], and the Schmalturn is 53.23%.  I don't put a ton of stock into these numbers generated by the unwashed window licking yolo storming heavy camping masses, but it does tell you what the average dumbdonkey can do with various tanks.

VK 28.01 is really strong because of its speed and gun: it gets the VK 36.01 (H)'s 75mm with 157 pen. It can also bounce some shots when angled. Its main issue is gun depression, which is below average for the tier.

The VK28.01 is strong, but if I want to drive a fast tier 6 I'm picking the Bromwell.  It might not be as fast as the VK, but with it's...gun depression isn't enough, I'm gonna call it god depression, but it makes it a lot easier to deal damage.

 I am really surprised by how high the victory is.  I wish you could filter on 30 and 60 day averages.  Looks like I am going to have to try and rehab the vk36,

The victory is a heck of a tank, it's basically a tier 7 tank classified as a tier 6.

The TOG is easily the best tier 6.....at soaking damage.  :P

The t34-85 victory is pretty mediocre, it is basically a worse version of the tech tree t34-85. The higher wr in it is due to it being fairly uncommon.

I like it.  It has a better ROF, so better DPM, but sacrifices some pen for it.  It's got better traverse, and it makes mad credits.  I wouldn't say worse, just different.  They are both good tanks.

The best gun for the VK36.01H to run is the waffe 0725. Better pen & dpm compared to the 8.8 but with less alpha.

If the tank was slow then perhaps the higher alpha gun would make some sense.

 

And finally.. if a meh player like myself can have 750 battles in a tank and have better than a 60% winrate in it then imagine how you could do in it Cletus with your looks and skills!

Premiums have the luxury of full crews and no stock grinds. For the ARL to only be 1% lower than the Victory or the Bromwell says something, especially since it has a pretty substantial grind.

 

Different tanks do different things better for sure, but I don't see how one could argue the ARL is not the best overall tier 6 tank.

You know, I meant to play it during my regular 3-4 lunchtime games....and I forgot.  Too much fast living!  It's for the best anyway, my lunch time teams were determined to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.  I'm going to run it tonight though, I will report back.  Thanks Zebra!

I was really hoping I’d be able to pick it up separately when I saw the victory bundle. It’s one of the few tanks that I’ve been waiting for. Out of luck.

I need to jump back in it.  I've got a 58% with 217 battles, which for me in mediums is pretty durn good.

I had a few battles in it last night, but I can't say I gave it a fair shake yet.  I was having connection problems, and the majority of my few games in it were low tier, and I didn't get to experiment with the gun.  I will say that the ARL is a lot more comfortable low tier.
