Hi,

I'd like to know which one of these tier 8 premium medium vehicles do you think is the best and why.

You can also consider the changes that will be made in patch 9.20.1

Thx in advance!;)

Have to give two answers here. 

 

With the broken MM right now, the one with best pen, on both the normal and prem ammo. 

 

Lorraine 40t.

 

BUT! If the MM will get fixed at some point, the choice is not that easy. Then the Revalorise and T54 prot. both are capable playing some crazy games. 

 

The FV4202 and 34-3 are getting buffed next patch. FV will get great turret fe., but the guns on both of those two will still suck. 

 

tl:dr, get the Lorr if you want one now. If you are not in a rush, wait and see if WG can do something about the MM in the next patch and decide then. 

 

You also can test all of these tanks in the test server and see which one is the best for you, which I suggest you to do rather than listening people on the forums.

I'm really liking T-44-100 right now. 5.5k in tier 10 game taking top place after the buff.

 

Very mobile with some armor and good gun.

Lorraine is in my opinion the most formidable Premium medium currently, great penetration, good clip potential with a comfortable reload. The armour is only good for miracle bounces but in return it is fast (sluggish turning though), also adding to it that even as a bottom tier you are scary for higher tier tanks with that 1200 clip. Don't think any of the other T8 tanks on that list has such an impact, in return it is quite unforgiving.

 

For pure fun I'd say the t-34-3 because...390 alpha feels nice when it hits and pens and the HD model looks sexy.

I love my Lorraine, but I gotta admit, I think that the M4A1 Ravioli is making credits easier, due to cheaper shells. As for "newbie-friendly", I'd say it is the T-54 mod.1.

 

P.S. : Sometimes the Lorraine can really carry, but you will have to "use" your teammates to the fullest - http://wot-record.com/replay/47787/speedphlux_lorraine_40t_carry_in_tier_10

I would hold on from buying any premium tank, you might get lucky when they sale the op ones again.

Safe bet would be around the Christmas Advent Calendar ... Just gotta "kemp bush" around that time and check it regularly (daily). Not that far off I think.

Of course, it might pop up sooner.

Lorr.40 t is difficult to play?

And how to get in test server?

if i had a lorraine i would say that thats the best one, but as i dont, i guess either sta-2 or ravioli, but after next patch its going to be the fv4202 IMO.

Lorraine. It's not hard to play, but might be hard to master. Works fine for getting a clip off when someone rush into you. Maybe T-34-3 will be a superior choice post-patch, despite PMM being in an awkward spot. Depends.

 

There's little denying the Revolvér will make the most credits, though. HEAT pen is a bit 'meh' and shell velocity takes a dive. The latter is half the point of the tank anyway. Jokes aside, the Lorraine does have the mentioned advantage of usually getting a clip off.

Speaking about the fv4202, I really like this tank and i'm also grinding the mt english branch.

It's worth?

The Lorr.40 t is similar to the T54E1?

(I say this because I already have it and I don't like it)

So worth it?

 

try it on test server, atm its not worth a single penny, but with that huge armor buff + speed buff, its probably going to be better than most of tier 8 meds, t54 prot will be crap again :D its very likely that i will get the FV after 9.20.1 goes live.

T26E4 is missing from the list. Probably the most noob friendly tank of all.

 

Pref MM also helps

By the way, is pref MM and advantage or is it a disadvantage?

 

I always thought it was an advantage, but Quickybaby the other say was commenting on the IS6 and how pref MM was a disadvantage...

 

Not fully sure that I agree...

IS6 in general has been powercrept to death, its funny though that once it was a good example of powercreep itself, lel. i wouldnt play is6 ever again, unless they remove its pref mm and give a proper gun to work with.
