Hello! Time for the big one, for those who missed it, here*s Part 1 and 2 respectively:

Tier 6 (Part 1)

Tier 7 (Part 2)

 

It's been a few weeks overdue and I apologize for that, my PC crashed and it took me two weeks to get the right parts shipped over. 

 

I'll be going through all the tier 8 premium tanks in regards to how you should equip them for an optimal contribution to your battles. Crew skills, tank equipment and your ammo loadout on a tank by tank basis along with some general pointers on why I choose these specific things and how it benefits you. What I will not be doing is doing a guide on how you should play, if that's what you're looking for this might a good start but there should other info on the specific tank you're looking for elsewhere. Reward tanks for CW campaigns, or  acquired through other means are not going to be covered. Marathon tanks will however be, since they all appeared in the premium shop at one point, or have been able to purchase through it.

 

My consumables will always be small repair kit, small medkit and the ration consumable unless explicitly stated otherwise. I'm doing this as a Unicum Guide, meaning rations is perfectly viable even in credit makers simply due to how much better your performance will be. One could argue that full gold is the most efficient, but since we're playing premiums it's mainly for credits, and not doing exceptionally well. So this'll be a bit of compromises and will really differ from tank to tank on the loadouts and how profitable they will end up being after having reached a point of acceptable playability in my eyes. This means that my personal suggestions for loadouts might not suit everyone and that should obviously be taken with a grain of salt. Those are the loadouts I run to maximise my outputs along with still trying to make decent credits. To me performance simply outweighs the amount of credits made even in premiums.

 

Let's get right on it shall we? It will be split into five posts because it's reaaaally long xD

The whole point of this is having it all compiled in one place, spreading it all out makes it exponentially harder to find and less valuable. Now if I split it into an appropriate amount of posts, I would prefer them to be next to each other. If I post them here, would you be able to move them together in line, or would I have to make a new thread for that to happen? In that case removing this thread so I can create a new one and one that works with the forum limits would be great. 

 

Well ok, nothing wrong with having them in one Thread either. Only thing is those are gonna be a lot of posts to make. In order to be one after another you could write a disclaimer for other people to refrain from posting until you are done and for those who still do so, I can hide/remove those posts.

I think this Threads works just fine unless you really wanna start a new one. Its a matter of then moving this one and moderating the new one in order to achieve the neat one after another post effect. Whatever floats your goat man.

Edit: A little bit of Forum tidiness has been done.

I've been patiently waiting for this. Sorry the forum couldn't handle it.

 

Perhaps a new thread with more topics? Like 1 post per nation and nations with less tanks together?

And if mods can clean the clutter if anyone posts before time, all the better :great:

Alright then. I'll edit the first post into the first part, and I'll edit my other posts into as many parts as required. All other posts between them and not relevant would be nice to have hidden :) I'll get on it right now!

The posts are here, hide anything in between them and I'll fix the spoilers meanwhile (amazing how I can never get them to work first try :( )

Don't tell others about the kv-5 :hiding:

So how good do you have to be to have cola earn more than auto FE on T34? Assume both bought on discounts.

Any sense to buy T-54 mod 1 if I have Type 59?

To buy STA-1 if I have Patton KR?
