Tier

1. Vickers Type B (by 0.6%) 

2. Pz 38H 735 (or LTvz 38)

3. Ke-Ni Otsu (but if you don't already have it then the normal KeNi or the Pz.KAusf J)

4. Valentine IX (or Luchs, although I like the KeHo)

5. Still the Leopard (or at a pinch the Electric Biscuit)

6. VK28.01 Natch... 

7. Type 62 followed by LTTB 

8. FV301 then T49 if you you like that sort of thing

9. Vickers Cruiser ... without any doubt ... possibly best tank in the whole tier IMO 

10. Vickers Light 105

 

This is from BlitzStars ... ones I'd add tot he mix though are

 

3.  Love the standard Ke-Ni and think the Audf J is too slow and does pen anywhere near well enough 

5. Chaffee

7. AMX 13 57

Depends very much on your playstyle I guess. I don’t visit tier 6 and below quite often, so I will go up from there.

  • Tier 6 the the AMX 12t or VK28.01
  • Tier 7 the Type 62 
  • Tier 8 the T49 or AMX 1390
  • Tier 9 the Vickers CR
  • Tier 10 I only have the Batchat, so no comparison there.

 

For me driving a light is all about speed and a low profile. Combine this with a clip or derp (49) and you can spot, damage and hide. The VK28.01 and LTTB have strong armor which compensates for their bigger profile. I love the Brits for their excellent viewrange.

For me it's like (no prems):

 

  1. Pz. II
  2. BT-2
  3. BT-7
  4. ------
  5. Leo (ELC when had 90mm gun)
  6. VK 28. 01
  7. LTTB
  8. T49 (although stats say I was better on AMX, it was way less enjoyable. BTW I used 90mm, not the troll gun)
  9. T92E1 (after getting nerfed into oblivion it was way less enjoyable, but it will still be my most loved T9 tank)
  10. ------

 

Okok I'm rigged about russians because RUSSIAN BIAS, so my vote would not count.

 

And now hate me bcs I love missile tank.

vk28 was my favourite LT before it was nerfed. after it was nerfed, it was hard work trying to fight Drac and 62 platoons in my vk28, so I stopped playing it. The meta has changed (Drac is smasher bait) and with Drac platoons not being as common, I think vk28 is viable now despite its nerf and I'm rediscovering the joy of driving around at 70km/h and shooting on the move.

 

I have 1.6k games in it at the moment in my Asia account and my 30-day vk28 stats are better than my career stats (one would expect pre-nerf Vk28 to have better stats than more recent 30-day stats, but I think the meta is favouring vk28 at the moment with an emphasis on slow-moving lumbering overarmoured monsters).

Hmmpff 

so many tanks are now just memories of older selves 

:/

 

tier 5 used to be a big light tank land with platoon vs platoon at 70kmph ... no more.

tier6 vk28

tier7 is a big contender. Type 62 has still a fan base. Lttb also has a fan base. I will differ from the crowd to vote AMX 1357 hands down. 
tier8 is T49, no doubt. There are other tanks, but u can’t enjoy them as much as t49. Lekpz maybe ? It’s more an intellectual tank though.
tier9 vickers I guess. It’s good everywhere, but it’s kind of boring. Or you got missiles.

tier10 I’m playing batchat non stop. It’s the most fun, except it’s terrible at winning games. I guess other than that you would have to chose between missiles and vanilla vickers (again)


Read my guides there

"I want the game to be just how it was launched, no MM limitations for platoons, some unbalanced match once in a while, and friendly fire should come back as well. The only thing they should remove is statistics." -phony1907, 08 July 2016, 05:45pm - 

I want just that, and replay files.
