I hate it! 

Maybe its the new MM. I cant find a single redeeming feature for this pile of poop.

I have only recently unlocked the AT15 in an attempt to get the current tier10, before its removed. I do have all modules opened, but still cant get this machine to perform. Slow with poor armour and a gun that while fast, accurate and with excellent handling still manages to be pretty much useless against most targets.

 

Any game play tips, please.

It's bad but still a dream after AT-8 and AT-7, at least it has a wide gun arc

Worst tier 8? Far from it. It's average at best. But on some maps you really get the 20 pdr working. As it's the only tank that gun is good on tier 8 with that dpm.

Try shooting enemies using your gun depression or while at your gun arc extents around hard cover.  You will bounce a lot more incoming fire this way.  

 

Otherwise, may the rng be with you.

That, just the corners. Hide the roof spots behind a building, wreck or hill. What ever you can. Use the gun angle on it for what it's worth and let the ROF work for you. Works great when top tier, not that great in a tier X game tho. But still better then going in the open.

Strangely a lot of player get very good results both with at7 and at15. The same was for me. I grinded mine when I was a total 51% bob and I overperformed in mine. Yeah the armor is meh but if you remember to try to permatrack enemies you will win a lot. Also move a lot so people miss the armor hole behind the gun.

The thing with the tank is that it has a 20 pounder as its top gun with better stats then the centurion but useless in higher tiers because of lack of pen. If you see a swedish high tier td don't even try to fire at it because the gun calibre is to small.

Defender is the worst tier 8 tank.

Most meds have the same problem though,.

Idk... maybe I was doing it long time ago, but I have 56% WR in 150 battles, which is 4% better then my average and places it among top 1/3 for all tier 8s that I've driven. So it cannot be that bad.

But this is a TD, a td which goes 20 kp/hour. With a med i at least have a chance to get in some flanking shots. Can't really do it with a slow td.

It is a T8. Thus it is terrible by default.

I really liked the AT-15 grind. If you can get that DPM to work for you, it can deal some sweet, sweet damage in a very short time span. As for the worst T8... Have you tried the Chinese T8 med? Now *that* is a bad tank and no mistake.

At15 - 58%.

On the other hand I achieved this before defender and company arrived.

I do not know how good is at15 now.

I ain't got an AT-15 personally (couldn't be bothered to go further than AT-2) but I have the prem variant and I do like playing it since most maps are corridors anyway and the mm is ... fair.

When you're on an open map:

Think where you want to have your fight (based on what's in the enemy team). If there is a lot of arty you want to be spotted late, preferably where you've got any kind of cover.

Tajj posted a nice armor view some time ago - you can bounce a lot while using the gun depression driving up a hill sideways and hiding your cupola. 

Remember to not get too far from the cap on encounters (sometimes it means ignoring the usual heavy spots). 

When you're on a corridor map:

Remember which corners you can look through safely (hiding the cupola). And remember which guns can go through your toughest armor.

General tips:

Get a spall liner. 

Full repairs as the first skill.

Remember to have a solid object to back into to avoid being circled. 

When there is no arty or golden tier X guns on an open map you can be a scout ;)

 

I just got my HTC and it's way worse than the AT (it doesn't turn). Both are enjoyable machines if you employ them in a proper spot and bully baddies.

The premium at15a won't see tier 9, the at15 will see tier 10 and every tier 9 can just pen it's armor. The at15a probably also has a better armor layout then the at15
