Wn8 creator decided WG changing half the light tank tiers broke wn8 and made further work on expected values pointless, so he just created a fixed version which can be updated for new tanks with minimal effort.

Play better = better wn8 on any tank.

With more than 33.000 battles already played, your chances of improving your overall WN8 significantly is quite slim.


Having said that keep playing the tanks your perform the best in. In your case it seems like slow Russian heavy tanks.

If you're bothered, and to be honest I concur with most of the posts in here about just playing your best. Then wot-news.com have a calculation that does it for you. Look in EU server, advanced player stats.

Get yourself a Valentine.  Dirt cheap to buy (250 gold on Valentine's day If I remember correctly), great fun to play, and with the recent changes grows your E-pen.. WN8 I mean really nicely. Not much skill required, just load gold and avoid Matildas, B2s etc. Even without prem account when you hit most of your shots you shouldn't lose too much money.

And the result basically is that tier8 premiums USED to be the best for farming win8 (aside from the lower tier tanks ofc) as they, in general, are played really badly by inexperienced players. MM in that regard didn't even matter that much as long as you were doing better than the average.


Now however, like outlined above, tier9s have such ridiculous low dmg requirements that providing you don't totally suck yourself it's easy to get monster win8 games pretty frequently. And as you see max +1 mm is less of an influence. The only downside is that it could cost a lot of credits.

Geezus, didn't know about it. Looks like an utterly stupid thing to do - why not simply fall back to WN7 instead (which, as I understand, worked basically like this)?


Well, in that case, of course the stronker the tenk the better for peen8.


Afaik WN7 was more biased towards frags? I don't know, not played during that time. The official reason was afaik that with the new rebalances (lights for example) paired with the release of new tanks made their work far too much to maintain in a timely manner.

Glad I read this post as it indicates why my perceived average play in my newly acquired RHM netted my a 3.4k wn8 session recently. Sitting in a bush hitting 3 shots and making at least 2k damage per game and more in a good game wasn't particularly difficult and I was quite shocked when I saw the wn8 I was getting from it. I assume that's because all tanks are now 'equal' in the eyes of WN8? If that's so it's a near useless stat now imo.


Yes, it is one of the TDs in the tier that benefited from the change along with the Scorpion G (around 1,6k was green before while for a Jtiger 8,8 it was 1200ish). Cannot say how useless the stat is as I always looked at it next to my other stats to see improvements, had not been using XVM for a long time either so for me aside from that it has been pretty useless.

Has the historic wn8 data been realigned as well? If so then it will make more sense. So for example if a person completed the same session in the rhm I just completed would they now have the same wn8 as me for that set of games 3.4k  or would they have like 2k wn8?

If you check how many battles there are listed at each site you'll see why there is a difference. The sites update at different times, some require you to manually update them.

It's always amusing (or sad actually) how many players obsessed with their ratings understand so little about them.

I - nice meme

II - H35 brilliant armor for its tier.

III - Pz. I C

IV - Luchs, Hetzer

V - Leopard, AT 2, T67

VI - Hellcat, Cromwell (O-I, but idk with the nerf next patch. Really noob tank and easy to play. Idiot-proof.)

VII - T71, Comet (Maybe Leo, but it's honestly a bit worse version of the Comet imo)

VIII - UDES 03, VK 100.01 P, Emil I (IS-3 although you'll get penned with the recent WG b*llshit Tier 8 Premiums) Or if you don't mind paying, you can basically get any OP T8 Prem, they're way too easy to find nowadays.

IX -  Skoda T 50, Tortoise, AMX 13 90, T95, T-54 ltwt, T-54, E 75, Leopard PT A, 

X - Maus, E 100, T57 Heavy, IS-4, IS-7, T110E3, The new Foch 155 B (perhaps), B-C 25 t, WZ-111 5A, TVP T 50/51, Strv 103B, Kranvagn


You'll probably find some other OP tanks but that's what I think.

Well for starters tier 7 lt's and tier 9's are good for increasing WN8, but you have a high battle count, which means it will take you like a lot of time & sustained effort to make it happen..


check this link for how much time it will take you and how much sustained WN8 level you need to have: 




My advice: Find a clan which are based more on player's experience (beause that you have like a lot, 33k battles ) than on WN8 solely.  If you really want WN8, easiest way is to "grow" another account  :) 


ur choise, options are outlined.

My personal recommendation would be to git gud.

Other than that, try the T5 Leopard. Imo much easier and more fun to play than the Type 64, can be bought for credits, fighting t7 in it is easier than fighting the new t8 prems in a Type 64 and it still makes truckloads of WN8.
