The Top Tanks by Tier in World of Tanks

1 of 11

World of Tanks, developed by the company Wargaming, is a free-to-play massively multiplayer online PvP game. The player is in control of an armored vehicle from one of several classes: light, medium, or heavy tank, tank destroyer, or self-propelled gun. These vehicles are then sectioned into tiers, ranging from the beginner's first tier to the intimidating strength of tenth tier with each tier of progression being more powerful than the last.

This brings to mind a simple question, "Which tank is the best?" This is objective. When you are playing in a group you might find that different tanks work wonders for different situations and team compositions, depending on what range of tiers you are playing in.

You see, each conflict in World of Tanks can have a variety of vehicles from several tiers represented on both sides of the battle. You might think that having the highest tier available to you is always the best option, but that is not always the case. A well-tuned Tier 2 vehicle that you are familiar and comfortable with might actually prove to be a stronger choice than your brand new Tier 3.

But which of these armored monsters is considered the strongest of their tier? As previously stated, when you play with a team of friends you might find that a variety of tanks work well with your composition. When you are playing alone however, your selection of tank has a far greater impact, as your team and your opponents will be much less coordinated and you'll have to rely on your own strength more.  So what does the community consider the strongest choices when playing alone? Read on to find out.
