It's always like this. Last years T-34-85M event saw 8-9 per team. Once the new-toy-feel diminishes you will see less of them per game.

It is not a problem with well-armoured tanks, as cornetto's pen is quite low. Anyway, this is the same every time when there is a new nation/new line/new premium tank/etc. and everything will calm down within 2 weeks.

I think the abundance of Progetto's helped me alot this month really. So much HP to farm, with so much damage blocked in turn. Seems the majority of them enjoy pumping their entire clip empty on my KV-4 for 0 damage, staying in view, so I can shoot them twice in turn, for full damage (cause 227mm pen shells snack on that armor).

 

I'm much more wary of the one Progetto that shoots me once & runs, making it hard to return fire. He's up to something & knows what he is doing.

Max. 1-2 weeks and YOUR PROBLEM will be solved. Anyway, this months top of the tree will cause bigger problems in 1-2 weeks at tier 10......

Paper 90mm medium's sound like a good time to farm damage.

So was tier 6 after the T-34-85M event. But most have bought it this time around with a discount vs getting it for free. So I kinda expected it to blow up in terms of population. I suspect it won't last that long. Most just want to try it. Some are training crews for the new tech tree coming in a few days. So I doubt it will linger for long after 1.0.1. Just take a break from tier 8 for a week or so. That's what I'm doing now. As the Progetto is not a bad tank. But I had more fun and better games in it vs +2 then equal tier games where they go in a group and you die in 2 seconds after you are spotted due to 5+ clip guns looking at you.

It will die down soon enough, fun tank though an at least unlike the Defender you can pen this thing properly.

Would you prefer to be in a full tier 8 mm or would you prefer to fight obj  268 4s in your tier 8 tank

Dude, I'm actually loving Tier 8 MM with so many Spaghetto in the queue. You actually get to see something different then Tier 10 matchups when you're playing Premium tanks and grinding credits, so I welcome this change. And it's not like the Proghetto is an OP tank that ruins everything else in the meta - quite the opposite.
Enjoy the break from constant Tier 10 matchups while playing Tier 8s and stop complaining. I guess WG should do a marathon like that every 3-4 months, so that we can catch a break from the madness of playing Tier 8 Premium tanks in regular time(s).

Tier 8 is not the only joke in this game. 

The others are tiers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9 and 10.

I have been running my VK 168 a bit to kill of Progs but every time I do so there is not an enemy Prog to be seen.  Rigged MM?

Are you trying to imply that tier 8 MM was absolutely fine before this event?

To be fair, maybe he thinks it was an incomplete joke before and this is the punchline? :)

 

That said, not been seeing more than one or two per side.....

Tier 8 has been screwed ever since they changed the MM to 3-5-7 format, especially with the amount of OP or broken tanks like the Type 5 and Obj 268 v4, that a tier 8 is virtually useless against...

Fear not WG has a plan (they always do don't they  ;-) ) that will sort out tier 8 and return it to it's usual glorious role as fodder for tier 10s to snack on:

Drum roll please . . . . I give you Frontline

Yes just as tier 8 finally gets some decent population that there are just too many to feed all those tier 10s WG has a way to take some of them away to a mystical land where they can play by themselves for longer than a regular battle. If you are bad no worries you can respawn again and again. I'm sure it will be fun.

The pizza tank is quite fun to play plus it is tier 8 premium from a new nation, so people are farming and training crews now. I think after the Italian tree release there will be fewer porgettos.

If you think that is bad now, just wait until the Polish heavy is released, as it it appears to be the Defender Mk2, lots of people will buy it including me, serves WG right for not being fair on the Defender sales on all the other servers barring the EU ones.

 

It would be interesting to see how the new Polish tank goes up against a Defender a tank hyped to death where if it is ever released again, it will be just another Tier 8 tank and nothing special.

Not sure how a load of paper tier 8 mediums that 90% of players struggle in is a bad thing for the MM.
