Top 3 Sidescraping Tanks For Each Tier (In my opinion)

I may be bias in this, as I have not played every tank I've put on the list. However, I try to be as accurate as possible, and have included reasons on why a tank was chosen by me, or not. Your experiences could vary. I'll start with tier 4, where there are actually tanks that can/bother to sidescrape.

Tier 4:

  1. Valentine - 60mm sides with tracks reinforcement and a high alpha gun allow the valentine to sidescrape well.
  2. DW2 - 50mm flat sides with fat tracks and a 5 cm gun with decent damage, as well as central turret placement, make this tank very nice in sidescraping spots.
  3. B1/PzKpfw B2 - 60mm side armor plus troll turret armor and great reverse-sidescraping abilities due to front turret placement mean that this tank can sidescrape decently. However, the tracks don't cover most of the side and provide extra spaced armor like the DW2's tracks.

Things Go Perfect - LTTB Style

You know those games where everything seems absolutely amazing, and you feel like you're the god of RNG or something? The video of the replay will probably explain it all...



Here are some post-game screenshots as well.

E-25 is Worth It

This tank was removed for a reason. It's too abusable/broken for competent drivers. The combination of high mobility, pref mm to make up for a low penetration but machine-gun like gun with amazing gun handling and accuracy, and finally, absolutely INSANE camo values, make this tank one of my favorite tanks, and in my opinion, the most powerful tier 7 premium ever released.

Full Stats

Even when I first bought the E-25, and knew close to nothing about camo and outspotting mechanics, I could easily do well in it, much better than my Jgtig 8,8. The gun just felt extremely consistent and powerful in dealing out damage over time. The mobility was great, allowing me to perform long-range flanking. These easy to understand characteristics were enough to convince me that this tank was great.

My Cogitations of the T-54 First Prototype

So, I bought the T-54 Prototype after the FCM 50T was not on sale.
After I wrote a HUGE article in the WoT Forum explaining how it was a weak tonk too.
So, I'm a hyprocrite. Apologies for that.

Full Stats

But after personally experiencing the playstyle of this tank, I realized that the tank isn't bad. Yes, it's not in any way OP, or even a great tank, but it is fun to play, trains my crew, prints decent credits, and serves its purpose as a bully/harasser tank.

What to expect of its armor?

Object 416 Thoughts (Happy Independence Day!)

Happy Friday Tankers,

today I am writing my review of the Object 416, a Russian tier 8 medium tank. Since I have just finished the grind, and have moved on to the T-54, I believe the time is right for me to review the tank (although I will continue to play it in the future to obtain the Object 430 Version II).

Full Stats

First of all, it is probably the hardest tank to master that I have played. I have struggled in this tank for many battles, and was irritated to the point that I called it frustrating to play. True - if you do not have the patience/skill to learn the Object 416's very unique playstyle, this can be a very frustrating tank to play.

Why?

T-34 is, IMO, the best overall tier 5 tank available.

Hi again tankers,

Full Stats

This is the only tier 5 tank that I have played that I've noticed highly rewarding results if you play smart. No matter what, you are never clearly overmatched over any opponent you can face. You always have some kind of strength over them.
