If you wouldn't pick a heavy to carry in than why would you prefer a medium at all?

 

The best medium in the game is the Matilda which is really a pocket heavy.  That says it all.

Because mediums can carry so much better than a heavy. Mediums can dictate the place, and pace of the engagement, easily isolate and conquer, and shred any heavy with superior DPM.

I like how you put it with the "one dimensional" comment. That's what makes the medium class stand out. An arty will either be in the obvious spots at the back of the map where they have lines of fire on the action, or they might get up close and shotgun. TD's and heavies are generally predictable too. Either in the back sniping from areas you'd expect, or up front brawling with angling/side scraping/peak-a-boom techniques. Light tanks will mostly just skirt the front lines passive scouting, occasionally maybe catching a tank with a flanking/circling maneuver. The versatility of mediums makes them my favorite. (This all being in regards to high tier play.) 

Exactly. Heavies are basically "Drive forward, shoot, get shot at, pray arty doesn't click me into oblivion and pray I don't get gold spammed". Medums avoid all that by simply not getting shot.

About the only exception is that the T71 > T69 while having identical MM

Idk, this is a hard questiom to answer.

I guess It really depends on the situation. I rather be in a medium if I have to carry on a open map. But on a city map, I will take a heavy any day.
With that said, we really don't have a lot of city maps at the momment, so as of right now, I preffer to be in a medium at all times.

Himmelsdorf and Widepark maybe.

An Ensk or Pearl River happens and you're back to wanting mediums

I`d honestly prefer a medium even on a city map. There`d be a lot of opportunities for strafing runs where you just blitz past the alley the heavy is in and fire down the street, reload, and do it again.

Yea, but that depends heavily on the heavy tank driver. If you use that stragety against the bulk of our population, sure it will work. But you use that against a good player, he will know how to counter you in a city map.

Heavy can only block so many points of attack.  A skilled medium will predict which way the gun is pointing. Frankly, if it comes down to that kind of situation where the driver begins to matter, the tank becomes irrelevant. It boils down to who makes the first mistake.

And that's the issue with this thread. Brcause it really doesn't matter what tankd are better, it comes down to who is driving them.

Considering the average skill of heavy tankers, mediums win.


You can PM with with questions, if you wish. I don't bite.
