Several alliance members and I have noticed how ineffective heavy tanks have become, just within the last series of updates. They used to be a staple in everyone’s offensive strategy. now, they are barely surviving the first 60 seconds of the attack regardless of what age your opponent is. if heavy tanks have been dialed back, that’s BHG‘s decision, but please let people know these things so that we can plan accordingly. It sucks when updates are made under the radar, that heavily impact everyone’s strategy and use of the game.

If there was no such update made on heavy tanks that you are aware of, please check the coding to see if there’s A bug impacting the offense/defensive capabilities of the heavy tanks. Thanks so much

Heavy Tanks haven't been adjusted since the New Horizon Season, when that season ended they returned. Outside of the M46 Patton Troop Tactic, tanks are left alone for the Evolution of History Season.

There are many factors that could be causing your HTs to be destroyed quickly, and Leaders may be well prepared to counter HTs.

Heavy Tanks are still as powerful as they ever were. However, with the advent of the Drone Era, the bases became very large and powerful. A new shelf was also implemented in the library that reinforced defenses with new buildings and also reduced the power of invading Heavy Tanks.
So it is natural that the HTs are having more difficulties facing very large bases, because although the HTs are still a powerful troop, they are few in number on the battlefield. In addition, the inability to shoot over walls and the slow speed are negative points. Adding to this the reductions in HT speed due to bastions and traps makes HTs even slower and more vulnerable. And finally, the sad choice of HT to look for bastions to overcome walls or openings that are on the other side of the planet to invade a walled city, instead of firing 2 shots at the nearest wall, complete the reasons for having lost the hegemony that a day they had.

Faced with new challenges, new strategies need to be thought of and put into practice.

The current season (season #3) offers defensive boosts so, in addition to what Refar stated, perhaps they are also affecting you either directly or indirectly (e.g., planes get shot and die faster thus giving less HT support, ...).

Heavy tanks are still powerful, i am using them combined with bombers at one of my accounts. Even drone age bases fall quickly with info age troops. Nvm, for some bases and especially for many base layouts they aren’t so helpful compared with other troops. But if attacking the same age (info for my example) there is no big difference except the boosts in defense others mentioned already.
