What am i suppose to do as a tier V tank in a match where there are 3 to 5 tier Vlll tanks?

As a heavy my armor is useless

As a medium my AP values are too low (even with gold ammo)
And i hate playing spotter

 

I fail to see the logic in such matching

You fight the other tier 5 and 6 tanks, you flank the tier 7 tanks of necessary and/or possible.Most tier 7 tanks have weakspots, so even if you fight them head on you can damage them, even though fighting them head on is definitly not what you are supposed to do.

Pix or did not happen.

As a tier 5 you will not see any tier 8 tanks in game
(this happend only in the old mm and with scouts)

unless you made a typo and mean tier 7.
In wich case... Too bad that's how mm works right now and yes that can be harsh (putting it mildly)

You realize that V=5  and VIII=8 ??

Nothing because it never happens.  The worst you will see (unless you are platooning with a higher tier tank like a muppet) is 3 x T7.  In which case you still have 7 x T5s to go and play with if you lack the skill to take on higher tiers.

You can not platoon with anything above or below your tier. There is no way for any tank in this game to see anything above +2 or below -2.

Maybe you have by mistake invented a time machine.

Lol.  Shows how much platooning I do.  You certainly used to be able to.  I guess they changed it at some point.  I stand corrected.

Well, at least we tried to proffer some possible answers to the OPs question.  You have just spewed some grammatically dubious and badly spelt abuse.  Well done.

If you are in a LT it makes no difference. If you are in an MT spot and try to sneak a flanking shot. In a TD press the skill button from time to time. If you are in an HT, sorry you're screwed. If you are in arty, you are Beelzebub reincarnated and deserve to burn in hell fire, I sure as he'll won't encourage you

Although even with assuming a typo he won't see five tanks two levels higher (unless he counts those on his team as well)
