Tier 8 and enjoyable don't exist in the same sentence.

Tbh there really isn't one and it depends what kind of gameplay you like most.

 

The most important part in a grind tank is it should be fun for you.

Lorr40t hands down. One of the best moneymaker (3rd place), has one of the highest avrage, good mobility and autoloader. Sounds like best all around right? It trully is

CDA 105 for me. 260 normal pen. Even vs tier X's it racks up the damage. And the armor actually works at times.

 

As for premium medium? Well I do own a few. But T26E4 is still the only one I still use.

From the regular ones I know it's not a light/med but Lowe. Good pen, good gun, good gun dep, strong turret, can sidescrape and good view range.

If its about T8 everything with camo and viewrange or strong gun is enjoyable somehow for me at least, i hate paying with premium rounds/credits for my fun.

If you don't care about gold spam every t8 premium is enjoyable.

If you don't want to spam premium ammo then go with:

Blackdog, T92, Skorpion G, S1, CDA 105,  Lorr40t

 
Edit: Mobility is also very important.

Personal Favorite

  • Light: M41 90 GF / T-92 / ELC EVEN
  • Med: Lorraine / T-44-100 / Type-59 / Pilot
  • Heavy: Liberte 
  • TD: Skorpion G / Strv-S1 / WZ-120-1G FT / AMX CDA

(i don't have all prem tanks but i have a decent amount, thus this is all my fav so far, from first to last respectively ;)

 

** in bold are the tanks i feel able to carry much easier than the other competitors

    in italic are tanks which can out-perform enemies if found in a specific environment

If you would consider Type 64 at tier 6 

 

I would say its the best tank in the game hands down. Its view range dominates games

Don't throw your life away scouting for your team who are most likely useless

Play selfishly , play like a medium

It is an epic carry tank

 

At t8 would say the blackdog is epic

And med t54 mod 1 for a brawler med, or sta  2 for a sniping support med 

Depends on your style

Scouting is making the enemy throw away their lives. Punishment for those criminals unwilling to be stout base camping arty defenders. The Type 64 is very good, but it also needs a good crew (as do all high tier lights). Training that up might not be the most enjoyable for new(ish) players.

 

Duffy mentioned the M10/Panter and that one is pretty fun too. The preferential match-making does help a little bit.

 

While the Cromwell (B) is a better tank, I think the AC4's also pretty enjoyable. The gun's great and unless you're going downhill, it's not fast enough to get you into trouble.

 

The SU-44-122 might also be worth looking into. It's decently quick, agile, can bounce and has that Russian 122mm with an insane reload speed.

 

Note that some mentions are pretty fun tanks, but they're only available in the premium store as special time-limited options every once in a while. Tier 8 lights usually fall under that category. I'm not sure if the M41GF ever got put on sale a second time. Tier 8 mediums are generally not regarded highly; they tend to be outclassed by many tanks they encounter. Which kinds of tanks do you enjoy? Which do you dislike?

If I play like a med I get 1-3k dmg high wn8 games

If I scout I get low dmg and no support 1k spotting mostly, rare occasion you get support you get 3k-5k spotting and average wn8

 

Type 64 is a better statpadding sealclubber than it is a scout. As for skills I had a 71% winrate and 5k wn8 on myn after 60-70 battles having had 100% crew with 0 crew skills. Second I start scouting for missions I've lost 3% win rate and 1k wn8.

Says enough rly

None, unless you like getting mutilated. Tier8 mm is crap. Do yourself a favor and forget prem tanks and just buy prem time (which makes all tanks prem tank in a way) and play what ever you actually enjoy.

Well it's not an aggressive medium like the Ram II etc. But it's still the best support medium on tier 5. Pen is not much of an issue in +2 either vs other tier 5 prem tanks tbh. And I should know, as mine has trained every Jap medium crew from tier 6 and up. I have over 550 games in mine. Tho it's never beaten the 3400 damage game my 220 had on tier 5. But still. Underrated tank for sure.
