Which tier 8 premium should I buy? I have now played japanese heavy line, but I want premium tank mainly for credits. 

 

I was thinking T34 or Löwe. 

 

btw. Why there is no tier 10 premimum tanks?

If you have played jap heavy line the Löwe would be the best tank for you.

 

And the question why there arent any tier X prem tank: -> to protect the high tiers from noobs who would buy them and then be dead weight for the team.

No slightest idea. I think players with less than 600 battles and less than 60 WN8 should be allowed to play the highest tiers from the get-go. What could possibly go wrong?

If you are debating between T34 and Löwe, then Löwe. T34 is trash. Löwe is better, all around, same gun depression, faster aim, piles of ammo 60+, troll armor and it's got the same mobility roughly. Less alpha, but more accuracy. T34 can be effective, but it's a very specialist tank, Löwe is more user friendly.

But if you want an american premium for farming, then wait for the Patriot to be in shop. T26E4 has lost it's value as it's PMM is now useless and the M46KR constantly sees tier 10 matches where farming is pretty much impossible without a premium account.

 

STILL, I recommend you watch some youtube vids on how to play the Löwe. It's not shameful to learn from better players. That's how most of us improve.

I have 3. Lowe, T34 & Lorraine 40t. My Lowe & T34 is purely for the credit farming. I mean, you can just get 1 shot off at the enemy & die & still make credits. The Lorraine 40t was purely for fun. However soon after purchasing it, I regretted buying it. Simply because of the fact it takes too long for the clip to reload & how quick you can fire your shots in the clip. The dispersion is too big after every shot. So you have to wait to fire again after each shot. Which defeats the purpose of an auto loader. It's almost like they re introduced the tank as a premium & then thought, lets just ruin it.

None. You are still a completely new player, buying a hightier premium tank right now is the worst thing you can do. You'd be nothing but a huge burden for every single team.

 

Instead, stay at tier FIVE to learn the very basics of the game first.

Because that would make the higher tiers even more unplayable.

Thanks. I will probably buy löwe. I have ~1 million credits now and next tank O-Ni will cost 1,5 million.

tip: keep playing tier 5 & 6 tanks. You'll make money and learn the game at the same time. You will make more money having learned the game as you will playing a premium tank right now.

Lowe since it`s on sale now. AMX M4 mle. 49 is also a very very good tier 8 premium!

There's nothing really wrong with buying a tier 8 to learn the game with. Low tiers teach you nothing but how to play slow paced potato gameplay with tanks that have terrible gun handling against bots with stock tanks and bad crews. The number of genuinely good players in low tiers is laughable so there are almost no players worth learning from.  It doesn't prepare one for any advanced gameplay in almost any way and it teaches a player lots of things he has to unlearn in the future if he intends to play high tiers.

 

In the end all that matters is the player's mindset. Either he wants to put the effort into learning in which case high tiers are the best place, or he doesn't. In which case it doesn't matter which tier he plays. A player can play 10-20k games in tier 5 and still suck [edited]. Actually a player who plays low tiers for 10-20k games is most likely to not master almost any relevant high tier and will still suck in the game.


As someone who "rushed the tiers" and turned out alright, meaning a few points off purple stats and having had dark purple recents for god knows how long, I can speak with experience. You learn by putting in the effort. With my terrible sleeping problems that make me a zombie quite often and have a very negative impact on both my learning ability and overall awareness while playing, I still turned out fine. I was terrible for the first 1-2k games but I did steadily learn even with the limitations I have. My point is that anyone with a bit of determination has the capability to turn out good, it just takes some work. And the only way to really be good at the game is to play higher tiers. Sticking to low tiers doesn't make anyone good.

What a load of rubbish. I mean really. You're replays are all over youtube. You are absolutely shocking. I mean, my 9 yr old son has more skill than you have. 822 games & you claim to be vastly experienced lol Not only are you shockingly rubbish. But it seems you deliberately play in a platoon of 3 with like minded in game trolls that go about pushing team members off cliffs, into harms way & just in general, ruining the game for everyone.

Or maybe this is you're alt & you refuse to admit your main has been banned or you keep it a secret because its just as bad as your new account.

Lowe is a safe bet. More forgiving vs the T34. And it's pen and accuracy is fantastic. Not a HT you push the fronts with most times. But great for holding a corner with the side armor and if you go hull down, as the turret head on is not easy for most guns. Lower plate is paper tho, so avoid the open ground like the plague. Makes credits just fine tbh. But can be a bit of a bummer if you don't do any damage and die early.

There are, but you can't buy them as WG did not want players to buy their way to the top if you will. And the tier X prems don't make more credits. They only give the crew XP bonus. You get them from Clan War events, or tier X tech tree changes like some of the recent additions most have. Or you have to complete all campaign missions, as the last set rewards a tier X "premium".

Dude, you should learn when to stop posting. Even if his skills are "bad". At least he knows how the game mechanics works so he don't post a replay of him cheating and playing badly at the same time.

Don't buy anything, all t8 premiums are bad in always bottom tier 3/5/7MM.

I make good credits with the Skorpion G.

Never played the Lowe but I hear it’s good.

Tier 8 overall isn’t much fun to play with the current MM however... so be warned it still feels like a grind when trying to earn credits being bottom tier.
