Tier 8 MM is fucked. It did not use to bother me so much until this latest patch 9.18.1, it was actually pretty decent in 9.18.  And even before 9.18 i would at least actually get to be top tier from time to time. 

 

Now i'm not saying I always want to be top tier and feast on tier 6's, but currently this never happens, it should happen more often than now, but I think the best solution is to make full tier 8 battles and 2 tier spread(tier 7 and 8) battles more frequent, this way tier 6 won't suffer too much. 

 

I've recently been playing the amx 13 75, i'm grinding to bc 25t, and i've noticed how much better tier 7 matchmaking really is than tier 8. You are actually top tier quite often, more often than you are mid or bottom, unlike tier 8 in which I haven't been top tier(excluding full tier 8 games) in more than a 100 games I think. 

 

I come to the conclusion that tier 7 premium will be far less wrecked by the MM and is therefore probably a wiser purchase than a tier 8 premium.

VK 45 03 ? Makes as much money as a tier 8 ... cost as much also. Fun tank. Bit slow.

Well, I don't mind the tier8 MM, but I gotta say I enjoy Vk45.03 very much. It makes very good credits nowadays and the gun is just awesome.

My friend seems to enjoy at15a a lot, too. I don't have any experience on the matter but from the replays I've seen it doesn't look half bad.

You misspelled "AMX 40" 3 times in a row.

AMX 13 57 GF has gone from being hideously bad to rather amusing.

Honestly, I haven't noticed the difference from 9.18. Not sure what people are moaning about.

I think he was referring to something completely different than AMX 40.

 

If I was the OP I'd just sit out and wait for the paint to dry. Maybe WG will fix some of this but right now I don't think investing on any tank is worth it right now. Many of my favorite tanks have been killed off(RIP KV-5, I miss you) and since 9.19 the game is forcing almost only Standard mode battles upon me. I have grown to really hate Standard because the game mode is extremely dumbed down and combines tunnel brawling with base camping. Now add in the fact that you almost exclusively meet same and higher tier tanks and barely see any lower tiers at tier 8 in stagnant maps that don't have any dynamics.

 

Some say tier 7 is better but I don't really know. I don't feel like playing AMX 13 57 and VK 45.03 24/7 even though they're great. Maybe the fact that I need like 9 millions of credits and tier 7s earn slower plays a role but mostly I'm just tired of playing the sh*tty Standard maps against higher tier tanks. I'd instantly come back if Standard became an optional game mode, in the other game modes the matchmaking is less game breaking because they generally offer some options.

 

It's also entirely possible that WG will break things further. In 9.18 I enjoyed the game a lot(more than for a long time) when I got a lot of Assault and Encounter and I didn't mind the 1 tier battles. Now we get more of the 3-level battles without any balance on how often you meet higher/lower tier tanks and the fun game modes are somehow broken and I barely get to play them. 9.19 as a patch was pure cancer and full of bad changes so for now I'm on a break, hoping that we get 9.18 back or some big changes.

If that T7 is 1357GF or E25, go for it :sceptic:

tier 7 smm suffer more now I feel. I regularly play my E25 and T23E3 as my credit earners. the problem is that about 60% of my battles are tier 8 where I come across armoured beasts that I can't pen unless I spam gold = no profit. at least with tier 8 smm you are the same tier have  (generally) better pen.

 

so then I take my type 64 out and again lots if tier 8 that I need to spam gold at. not sure where the money makers are at the moment
