When I first started playing WOT around 3 years ago. The 110 was actually a fairly strong tier 8 heavy tank arguably better than the IS3. With all the new premium tanks like the 252u, AMX M4 49 and the buffs to the IS3 and 112 as well as the new [Japanese] and German super heavy lines, I feel the 110 is now quite a bad tank. It's armor is poor, the gun doesn't trade well or even handle well. It's really just a completely inferior version of the IS3, which is an inferior version of the 252u. Other tanks like the AMX 50 100 or the T32 have their own little niche strengths but not the 110. I'd rather play the tiger II because at least it can snipe like a champion in those tier 10 games.
Power creep continues to harm this game. I have no issues with introducing strong tier 8 premiums as good as the tiger II, 110 etc. but when they are better in every way, it sucks.
