Have some gold to spend... and I would like to use the current 15% discount.

 

I would kindly ask for some advice which T8 premium medium tank is best choice now days?

 

Im deciding between M4A1 Sherman Revalorisé, T54 Lightweight, FV4202 and STA-2.

 

Please comment. Thanks.

I personally wouldn't buy any tier 8 medium tank with a 230-250 damage gun. Their dpm is just inadequate and they don't even have the alpha to stay in cover during reloads. The T54 prototype especially is quite tragic, as even with the buffed armor in 9.20 it's still going to be a punch bag for tier 9 and 10 opponents, which in turn you will be facing all day long.

 

That said, the M4 ravioli is amazing fun. It has amazing shell velocity and the 390 damage punch feels rewarding. I love mine and it's my primary credit maker nowadays.

Neither.

Lorraine 40t is the best.
Revalorise is through only manageable standin. The rest are rather bad.

Get Patriot if you want a more mobile T8 premium tank.

You've got pretty good stats on that account, and I had a quick peek to see you've got the tier X BatChat. 

 

I think it's a no-brainer. Go for the Revalorise, as you should have a good crew to put in it, and with your skill and that gun you can at least cope a lot better at tier 8 with the current MM.

 

Ravioli all the way for me.

Also voting Rev. It has big alpha with cheap ammo, if you make it work  credits should never be a problem again.

Get the Defender. Best tier 8 MT.

The answer is none until they change the God awful T8 MM.

Ravioli is the best medium prem. from tech tree
PRO: Alpha, Shell Velocity, Depresion
CONS: Mobility, Armor, Camo, Pen.
You can try the tank in common test this weekend!

Hello white.

My opinions:

M4A1 Sherman Revalorisé, Not bad, but you have to be a sniper. No way to play in close combat.

The only good point is ALFA, but accuracy is sort of meh. Good quantity of credits cause cheap ammo.

Personally i dislike it.

 

T54 Lightweight (you mean first prototype), i have it and i like it. I enjoy the armor and the RoF. Turret offer some bounces sometimes.

Its a brawler, so close combat. Doesnt carry enough ammos, but with 9.20 patch is going to receive a huge buff, like 20 ammos more.

Personally i like it.

 

FV4202, This tank! Is going to receive the third buff in few months. Will have great turret, decent mobility, good gun depression. 

It's a calssic Brit medium, seems good for all but doesnt excel in anything.

I suggest this for you. 

Personally it's a good tank in good hands. And for non good players can be interesting.

 

STA-2. NO! When i face it its easy to pen, in every part. Could it be a good med for a good player.

Personally i dont suggest this one.

 

Rod

Only the Rev is usable among those you listed.

Sensible choice. Any feedback so far? 

 

Vents/Vstabs/Rammer?

i only have Prius, and i can say that isn't worth it right now, maybe after the buff will be, but that buff was only on supertest and we can't be sure.

None of them. mediums suck in tier 8 meta nowadays. unless you wish to risk a T-34-3 with 390 alpha and god awefull gun handling. its the only med capable of scaring anyone with a boomstick. M4 Rev is like a bad tank destroyer with poor pen and an even worse medium. the rest are 240ish alpha guns and they really suck.

Well, to be fair

WG had this premium policy years ago, before E-25, before Scorp G, Defender etc.

 

Premiums should have a critical flaw, like the T-34-3's gun handling, Ravioli's pen.

Critical flaw like SkorpionG being the most played tank in the whole game with literally nothing wrong with it other than the players skill level and my defender is so flawed too. 150mm cupolas so weak. needs buff. :trollface:

Ask yourself, "which tier 8 premium tank would I get the most use out of?". And there you have your answer on which you should buy.

TBH, I hate the Scorp G way more, than the Defender.
