And of course, not all heavy tanks are equal. That Tiger gets an awesome gun once you get the 88mm L/71, but its hull is paper; the IS is more a medium tank with a big gun that needs to get close to the enemy to hit them; the T29 has a paper hull but has a good gun on an impenetrable gun mantle; the Black Prince has nice all around armor but is slow and has piss-poor firepower etc...

Just because you're a "Heavy" tank doesn't mean you're going to be owning in battles all the time. There have been many occasions in a heavy where my ass has been nailed by wolfpacks of medium and/or light tanks, and of course artillery. Only thing you get transferring to Heavies is that you play differently.
