- When implementing new T8 premiums, look at the average vehicle of the tier and match them to that. Do not match them to the best tanks on the tier and then make them slightly better, this is bad for the game in the long run.

So, this cought my eye, and i think it's worthy of a lil' discussion. 

 

How would you do that exactly? Balance a new Russian TVIII premium based on the average of same tier/class Russian tech tree tanks?

Or based on the average of all nations? Cause basing it on one nation would have different speccs as balancing the tank based on all nations.

 

You mentioned TVIII specifically. Would you exclude other tiers from this approach or am i interpreting things wrong her?

Personally, the lower tiers seem decently balanced - with one or two exceptions that still are or were on the OP-ish side but still have the stigma of being OP.

New tier 8 premiums should be better than Defender.

All preff mm tier 8 ended up being punching bags for regular tier 8s and tier 9s, because theyre getting full tier 8 games or 5/10 vs tier IX 90% of the time . Tanks like Type 59, T-34-3 , FCM , IS-6 - even is-3 can W them to death, not mentioning defenders or  patriots .
