New year has come, so a new poll about the in-game balancing.

 

What's the most balanced/enjoyable tier to play at the moment?

Two different things for me:

1. Most balanced - tier ix, many of the tanks there can cope with tier x and when top tier you can smash the noobstorm of premiums in viii back to the garage;

2. Most enjoyable for me is vii, teams are crap but that’s true of most tiers a lot of the time these days so hooning round drifting in my lttb is how I enjoy the game these days

I believe tier 5 and 9 are the most balanced. Tiers 5 were nerfed a bit in 5.5 but nothing major for the most part, which means tier 5 can still cope with 6 without totally destroying tier 4 (the difference got bigger but the jump from tier 4 to 5 was always pretty big in terms of tank performance). 

 

Tier 9 keeps the noobs in premium tanks in check while still being able to fight tier 10's pretty reliably. 

 

Tier 7 is kind of fun even though there's literally zero balance, but I can carry teams most of the time if the reds don't have unicums on their team. Tier 8 is a nightmare at the moment, a real shitstorm is going on there with 1-3 WZ fake tanks, Scorpion G's an Defender tanks in every game, which is no fun at all. Luckily tier 9 is still much stronger, even though K-91 is there too and a bit OP, but at least it's a rare tank.

Whilst I tentatively agree with the comments above, i regularly find that when I play tier 5 I am bottom tier more often than top tier as I now never seen tier tier 4. 
Tier 7 also never sees too many tier 6, and far too many tier 8 ........the broken tier....

Tier 9 is used as something to let the OP armoured tier X use for target practice....and only occasionally can you get into a position against the armour to allow you to pen.....and then you are shot from across the map by a Death Star! Hiding and being operated by someone who can actually play, and is using the armoured noob tank as bait!

This is a bit out of topic but why you guys think tier 9 is balanced, because definitely i cri eveyr tiem in my 400+ dispersion on heavy tanks, except for Mauschen, that thing works good when it can hide it's lower glacis armour.

Tier 9 for me.

Not the preferred tier of the 6.5 playerbase, though.

I dont think it’s off topic really as it’s about why we think tier ix is balanced...

For me the main thing is The tanks at ix in general can compete with tier x but are not stupid OP against viii...

Although that may just be me, as I can’t seem to make tier x work but can in tier ix and contribute in a tier x battle...

@gallabru that’s interesting, I expected the shape of the line up to vi and knew viii was most popular but didn’t expect vii to be so high...

Is there a way to cut that data by release or even 2 plots one for pre 5.5 and one post?  It would be interesting to see if it’s changed...

I guess this data is from Jylpah’s replay db so maybe skewed as lots of newer players won’t post replays...

T7 has all the extremely popular stupid tanks, doesn’t it?
And there were loads of them added to the game over the Halloween and New Year events

All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.

Time to die.

@Mjr_Eazy, yes from Jylpah's databases, I would be completely unable to fetch them by myself.

He is getting them directly from WG on their developper's site, like Blitzstars does. As I understand, all the battles recorded are present in his database.

Unfortunately, I am not sure you can get anything from a specified time range back in time. You only get the current state.

If you mean Dracyolo, Hellthing, GraveDigger then yes but tier viii is stuffed full of premiums too and ofc we have the new pasta wagon too...

I also agree tier 9 is most balanced and would work well in tournaments if they single tier tourneys. Why run tournaments 5/6, 7/8 and 9/10. Why not have tournaments for individual tiers. Tier 9 would be a popular choice. Good tanks in all classes nothing stupidly OP really. Tier 7 would be just mad and most likely funniest. Tier 8 no change just IS variants (yawn) brawling. Tier X team with most T22 and Foch155 wins.

Tier 7 will now be destroyed with all the Smashers that people have gotten from the bloody crates. And WG will earn a fortune sellling this broken sht tank.

I own one fantasy tank, the Dracula (first globe win), and i hate it. Can't play the tank at all, if possible i would gladly offer it as a trade or even like a donation. Dont like fantasy tanks, and i don't mind OP tanks i agree with that, but at least make them look like historical tanks god damn it.

 

Abominations like Gravedigger, Tankenstein, Lycan, Smasher, Helsing and Draculas seems to me that are ruining tier 7 battles for good.

Are you on a re-roll account may I ask or are you new as I see you haven't had many battles.

Tier 9 is the most balanced by far as that's the only tier WG don't fill up with OP premiums and once newbies get their tier X tanks they never go back to tier IX.

 

For fun, I play tier 7, and tier 6. There are going to be a lot of Smashers out their any moment now....so beware!

 I enjoy Tier IX & X but my safe call is always tier 6 for fun now it used to be tier III for clubbing.

 Oh and my Chieftain at tier VIII rocks for some reason such a lovely balanced tank.

Buckleyteer2 - Not a re roll. It's my first Blitz account, made it in 2018 but took a long break from the game. I didn't played the game for a year for that reason (tier 7 imbalance), witch ruins the experience of a free to play user like me. Never bought premium time or a tier 8 premium tank.

 

I want to grind the tiers slowly, but tier 7 at the moment is killing my appetite for going forward.

Ah okay maybe just sell it then as it can be tricky to play I had sold it once then bought it back when I learned more on the game and felt I could handle it better.
