What do you guys think the best 1v1 tanks are? For tier VIII we know that T28 Proto is best, right?

something with dpm and ability to bounce shots...... russian meds/light is your answer.

a wiser thing would be not to trade 1 for 1.... now in 1v1 its 40% RNG for sure as that one shot can be cause of your lost.    getting the first shot off in an engagement and then disengaging would be on player ability not the tank of choice

with these low number of battles im going to assume you arent aware of other ways to take down tanks (which is fine, im still struggling after 34k battles LOL)

For tier 8, I actually have a number of different 1v1 tanks. 

If I know the opponent, and I know they're low-to-mid winrate players, I bust out the Super Persh and keep my distance.

 

If I know they're a good player, I typically run my T34 these days for the raw DPM and good pen.

 

If I don't care about skill, I'll play one of my three or so T-54 clones.

 

Tier 6 is a no brainer, PzKpf IV Schmalturm. Can't get circled, can't get out DPM'ed, turret and hull armor are decent.

 

Tier 10 is an odd one, I'll typically bust out my T110E4, but if my opponent is a royal D-bag with low-to-mid stats and they've been playing relatively long time-wise it's M60 city, where the salt exports are the main source of income.

For tier 7 the M6A2E3 SHINES with its angled 191mm of frontal armor (you can upgrade it with the spare part things and bump it up to 191-> 200 something) and its nice 105mm t32/t29 gun, this tank is amazing at anything in tier 7 ESPECIALLY tier 6 FRONTALLY, Most will struggly to pen you.
I'm just really tired right now, but I can't stop going forward right now.I have to keep moving forward to be better at things even if i'm tired of being look down upon.

High DPM/HP and good traverse is all you need. just rush them.

Idk why but I love the E50m for 1v1s. Even though I haven't won any since my luck always ends up being on the bad side. I've noticed if you don't allow heat ammo, you can face hug a medium with the E50m and they can't pen you. Its really interesting and it's quite effective. I've facehugged a t62a with my e50m and couldn't really kill me

Teir 8 for a med id go mod1

Teir 8 with a heavy id go my 112, mainly because NOTHING can out flank it (ive had an ru run 70kph around me and i could still keep up with it, and it also has the strongest frontal armor of its teir and strongest turrent teir for teir in the game (check tanks gg there r areas and each side of the upper gun manlwlet, top corners,that have 1200mm of effective armor, it has the same armor profile in both games) the pens a little lack luster though

Like 3/4 of the Glacial's front is a butter-soft lower plate and the turret's got some major tumors on it as well.

No not really..... The commander hatches r quite small and decently armored and the 112s lower plate is angled back at a 40* angle and it is 80mm of armor, while the upper plate is angled at 45* and.120mm of armor, plus i have fully equiped my 112(and 62 keni bt7 bt7arty ft d1 d2 r35 ms1 arl44 amx50100 t44 and anko) and i still have 370k spare parts and i mounted my 112 with xtra armor and pen and it bounces more then ever

Funny then, I find myself penning that tank quite easily. Maybe it's the playerbase then.

For 1v1s, you'll probably be running tier 10, especially if it's some salty guy from a random battle trying to make a point.  M48 seems to serve me well in beating them off.

FV4202 if you have good luck. 

IS-7/Whatever heavy if you don't.

​My Glacial was penned at all areas, all angles, all the time. I gave up on this tank looooong before 3.Hate came

along.

How about amx 50 100? It deals 1860 damage with 6 shots, which kills any tier 8, even if the RNG trolls. It takes only 32 seconds to do this. I don't think any tier 8 tank can deal 1500 dmg in 32 sec.

I have the 112, I would never run it in a 1v1. You can easily track slow tanks anyway.
