So, yesterday I was thinking about what should I research next in the game. I stumbled around 3 candidates: M8A1 which leads to the T67, T40 which leads to the well-armoured Wolverine, and T-28 which leads to the mighty KV-1. T-28 was clearlly not my choose, so I excluded it.

Two candidates remained: M8A1 and T40. From these two, which is the best? And so, what kind of strategy fits your chosen tank?

M8 has turret and its faster

T40 has the larger derp

 

I had M8 before and didnt regret it. Its fast and has a turret. But both have bad armor.

I'd go for the T40.

It has insane view range, good camo a wide gun arc so you can use net+binocs and the gun is great. I started out using the derp but have switched to the top gun now for better results.

They are both great and lead to more great tanks.  Can you afford another garage slot while they are 50% off?

for me it was the T40 by a long way, but not with the derp, it uses the same top gun as the sherman with 1 more round per minute, mind my stats in it are nearly exactly the same as in the SU-85b which i also like...

When I just entered the game, I said "Well, if it's gonna be good, that M8 will reck even the hell out of a KV-85. If not, then it sucks." So, I free exp'ed the M8 and now I have it. And it's already full, because I play too well in it. I use camo net+binocs to troll all folks in the town with my 430m viewrange and troll camo. And it recks pretty much everything. I had a game in T6 where I totally trolled a KV-85 and a T-34-85 (dang, if the electricity would've not been cutted of, then I would've totally trolled all the folks out there). So, I've choosed the M8A1 because of its turret, mobility and gun handling. I'm using the 75mm because of that damage. And still, I troll all my enemies :DDDDD

You can look at my profile and see there how good I played today in it, and it's the first day of using it.

The M8A1 is an awesome little thing. I've played 57 in it, 65% wr and my only ace tanker award (and I'm a noob with 1,000 battles). However, the T67 which is next is garbage and then the Hellcat..... pft not much better, sadly. So I would go up the T110E3 line, which is much better (I've played it on Blitz) although getting through the T95 I wouldn't wish upon anybody.

Looking at the tanks themself, m8a1: great view range and camo (over 50% with camo net and crew), nice pew pew gun with very good pen and pretty good accuarcy, even after the view range nerf (320 m, same as m3 lee) from 9.6 it will still outclass most tier 4-6 tanks with camo and view range (if you use net and binos). T40: good view range, gets hit pretty hard though after nerf (only 310 m) has a great derp but with really bad accuarcy.

Both don't have armor, but the m8a1 has a turret, which means you won't reset binos and camo while turning your gun around. 

I suggest m8a1 for an overall better tank, and the T40 for the derp. about the lines you should consider yourself, and you can always switch from the hellcat to the jackson

Do both, grind one and switch to the other I've been doing that with my russian high tiers means my crew get more exp, and I'm not shooting up the tech tree and get to see what both  lines offer

I personally prefer the M8A1. Its fast and has a turret. 

 

The tank you choose should depend on your plau style. If you play aggressively then go for the M8

If you are defensive go for T40

M8A1 is godlike but the T67 that comes after is crap. Master Ace vs Master 3. :/

Erm, T67 is one of the best tier 5 tanks. The fact that you can't get Ace on it only proves as much, because it means that the bar is too high for you. Also, your WR in M8A1 is poor but your WR in T67 is quite good, more proof that T67 is an excellent tank.

 

Also, you have 2nd Class on T67, not 3rd Class.

Played 3 games tonight with T67. First game 18dmg, second game 43dmg, 3rd game 240dmg whohoo. I get more dmg with T1 Cunningham ffs.

 

Edit. 4th game finally paid off. 340 assisted and 1050 own dmg. This is a frustating tank.

If you're getting such scores, you must be doing something wrong. No offence intended, but maybe you should look up some gameplay videos of the T67.

18dmg means you are using HE shells, you are at fault for sucking badly with probably top 3 OP tier 5 vehicles in the game. L2P before commenting, please.

No it means I shot a guy who had 18hp left. Learn to see several senarios before commenting please.

 

I just played a tier5 game. 1 hit then dead. The hit came 7minutes in the game. I am pretty sure if I had my loving M8A1 with the same player and the same map I would have scored around 500-1K dmg.

Well, I'd still call that sad. Only one hit, a killing blow, after the match time is half over? This is a case of PEBKAC for certain.
