Do you think there are too many tier 8 premium tanks and WG should stop releasing new ones so often?

Well, kind of. Some diversity would be nice. With the matchmaker doing what it does to T8s, it would not be a bad move to introduce some decent T7 premiums. Don't really care if a team is mostly premium tanks - seeing as they are never stock and people play them enough to (hopefully) understand the strengths and weaknesses. Beats a triple stock IS-3 platoon as top tier.

 

Oh, and if you're going for a poll, please make it more biased or go for the 'single-candidate election' approach, where the options are "Yes!!!" and "Yes!".

Not just T8

By definition, there is no point in offering a premium tank unless it is better than a normal tank, as nobody would buy it. As more premium tanks are issued, new ones need to be better than those too, for the same reason. The more that are issued, the more the power creep: it may be profitable in the short term, but in the medium and certainly the long term it is a serious problem: a "free" player that leaves the game becuase they cannot compete can now never be a payer, a small payer that leaves not only removes their small payment, but will never become a big payer and so on. Platers that leave do not usually give up gaming, they move on to something else, hence boosting the competition, whatever it is.

 


Maybe the company recognises that the shelf life of the game is approaching, and are actually just intent on milking the ailing cow for as much as possible.

no point.. t8 simply lost their role as creds "cows".. atm 60% - 70% of games are vs t9- t10, this increase use of gold ammo and decrease survability all that means you earn less creds so it is simply not worth playing t8 prems anymore.. t7 is really much better choice but again we have only very few of them available.. so for creds i personally now play t6 with 180-220 alpha it brings much more joy to play and earns decent creds.

Doesn't premium tank which is better than equal tiered standard tank fall into pay to win category?

Yes...much of the game is pay to win, like most free games are to a greater or lesser extent. Play is free, but winning?

Winning requires you to play well.

Yes but it's easier to play well in Defender than Tiger II for example...

It might be easier, but still 90% of your chances to win is made by the MM and the skills of the player.

i have no problem with there being many T8 prems (diversity is good, who the hell wants 8 IS3 + 2 T34 + 2 Löwe vs 10 IS3 2 T34 + 2 Löwe battles), the problem is only when the premium tanks are too good.

 

WG is a company and thus needs to make money - otherwise we wouldn't have a game to play.

And easier in an IS-3 than a Defender....

Biased poll, and Japan still needs a premium tier 8 HT for crew training.

A сука блать шите Tiger isn't what Japan needed.

I think all nations should get a competative tier 8 premium to use as a crew grinder. but then again we get trash like FV4202 and rasha get Defender... they arent consistant in balancing them.

Last I checked there were more premiums at tier 8 than all the other regular tanks from all nations combined at that tier, and they'll release more premiums at t8 as well. Would be nice to spread it around a bit more, tier 6 and 7 f.ex. Sure there's one every once in a while, but not spammed out like at tier 8.
