Ah, here we are; arguably the most loathed, masochistic , debated, and broken tier of all: Tier 8! (Even though with the new MM, it remains to be seen if T8 keeps that crown.) Cast your vote for what you consider to be the "must-have" non premium tier 8 tanks per tank class to have in your garage, if any! :P

 

Remember these polls are not specifically about which tanks are the best / OP, but meant to be about whatever LT/MT/HT/TD/SPG you think everyone should have in their garage, whether for historical reasons, derp reasons, First & Second front missions, looks-so-ugly -its-cutereasons, vbaddict-tells-me-it-earns-the-most-credits reasons, etc.

 

And dont forget to pick one (or more) of the tanks you voted for and comment on why you put it in the must-have list. Thanks!

I have done last year also:http://forum.worldof..._fromsearch__1. Give it a few weeks for this poll to finish and I think I will do so again this year.

Its a cess pool of the unloved :P

 

The lights are abysmal compared to the prems... ( elc and t92 both better at bush camping, hwk 30 better sniper, t32 better at everything )

The meds are abysmal compared to the prems.. ( t44-100 is best alround tank at t8 imo, progetto is just OP, lorr it excellent, t54 mod1 best brawler/heavium )

The heavies are abysmal compated to the prems.. ( Defender :P, IS3 A both excellent, I would even argue the 112 is better than some of the standard t8 heavies ) - Standard Emil is decent.

The TDs.. see what is happening :P ( strv best bush camper, skorp best all round, Wz best assault ) Perhaps the Su101 is close???

 

WG have made an absolute mess of this tier, a stain on the game its that bad.

Looking at this list made me realize just how many meh tanks there are at tier 8. Agree on all the current "leaders" except maybe regular t8 lights in which i havent played in ages. (voted lttb)

I think nothing at tier 8 is better bush camper than udes and its insane camo.

You may be right, I class udes/strv wedges same thing. Don't own either, never will horrible gameplay mechanic/idea.

 

has the UDEs got better stats than Strv?

Lol, thought the same. If it were a line-up for a competitive team for cw or something I would probably have said "Wow, you really scraped the bottom of the barrel there".

Udes is far more superior in case of bush camping. It is basically invisible and has more accurate gun. Strv 1 is great for bush camp too but not as much as udes.

Not a very spectacular tier when you exclude premiums, is it? I'd say IS3 and pantera are currently the best non premium T8s.

I don't really like tier 8s (probably cause of a bad mm which we had for so long). Tier 9 is the most fun imo.

12t is probably the best tier VIII light,

Pantera and T44 are the best mediums now,

IS 3 still the king, I would also vote for Vk 100.01 (P), but the speed makes not so good, I've lost matches only because I couldn't flex and go to help another flank on time or go back and defend the base,

also the Caernarvon, with the new gun, it has very good DPM.

as for TDs, I don't know, probably the UDES for pure sniping, cause it's pretty hard to get spotted, especially in randoms.

Arty, what? No, no, no.

I agree with you there. there are only a handful of regular tech tree T8s that are worth keeping. Tis a sad state of affairs. And I havent run the numbers, but I think the number of premium T8 tanks available are equal to or are greater in numbers than the regular tech tree T8s...:(

WG have made an absolute mess of this tier, a stain on the game its that bad.

 

Tier 8 and Tier 10. While among reward TX tanks only T95 chieftain and 907 are OP, among tech tree tanks, only a handful are competitive.

T8 is even more messed up, seeing as tech tree tanks can't even be compared to premiums. Premium tanks have 1 worse feature, say 1% less camo, but are better in every other category. After WG has to sell no matter what. And people just agreed with WG by spending.

People spent their money to get an edge over others, now they are complaining about game balance, yet they don't want their premium tanks to be nerfed. It's a sh1tshow that will never be fixed. Everything WG tries to do, every small fix will break something bigger.

Personally I would not mind some nerfs to my premiums if that would actually improve gameplay...but thats just me...

I've ground out a few tech tree tanks and they've been total disappointments

On top of that they are a huge credits sinkhole

All that effort for a complete PoS

 

Got about 300000 combat xp and not remotely interested in converting it

Got well over 99 combat reserves, 200+ bla bla who cares

 

Just like playing premiums at tier 8, it's SO much simpler

 

Sold my Tiger 2 and got a tier 6 russkie popgun tank, more fun
