I would like to talk about the red headed step child of WoT. The tier 9's. They are never included in anything. No need to list stuff. Because they excluded from everything. Tier nines matter too.

Trouble with tier 9 is well its too well balanced for WG to make a game mode out of, we would need to see some serious buffs and nerfs before we had an unbalanced enough spread of tanks for Ranked or FL.

WG has a fetish for even numbers. In fact the whole world does.

Until recently that was the best tier to play in randoms. Still hold much of that since tier 9 tanks are by design very close to tier 10s in performance. If you're talking about events please tell us what's on your mind!

Also tier 5, tier 7. I never understood why they never made strongholds and clan wars a 2 or even maybe a 3 tier spread? Like 5/10 or 7/8? I mean, tier 9 is a useless tier apart from the grind. Why keep playing tanks that can't be used anywhere or, you know, grind credits or crew xp?

Well events for it would be nice. But how about it advancing missions. Being able to get get XP boosts like what is going on this weekend. An idea just popped into my head don't know how good it is but.. How about being able to drive tier 9's in tier 10 CW's. No boost for the tier 9, But for each tier 9 in the group that wins maybe extra rewards for the clan and driver. But mostly can we see tier 9's included in missions.

Tier IX is the tier that I enjoy the most to play. You're not helpless against Tier X and the handling of the tanks is finally good after all the grinding towards the upper tiers. Besides that, I'm more or less useless in Tier X but I do better in Tier IX even when I'm pitted against Tier X.

Do people actually play Tier 9 these days?

Not really. I couldn't care less. Not one for superstitions, not me.

Actually most of the world has a fetish for round numbers, 'cause real numbers have curves :P

Unless I'm grinding something I play it virtually exclusively.

Tier 5 to unbalanced

Tier 6 to unbalanced.

Tier 7 same Also the lack of prem tanks compared to others.

Tier 9 no prem tanks ...but would say the tanks will match up nicely overall

IMO tier 9 would be perfect for FL too. And tier 7 and 9 have some of the more interesting equal tier games in randoms. Tho lack of premiums would def be why less would play FL with those vs tier 8 I suspect. It would still be nice as an option. As the one thing FL lacks... is variety.

Go and play with your tier X friends

 

Tier 9s and 10s are OP seal clubbers, wreck games and deserve to be alone and lonely

 

If you want to play FL use your tier 8 tanks and your awesome skills

 

Have a nice day

I find that statement rather odd, only trying to even it up.

A FL for tier IX only would mean less seal clubbing in the randoms though, no?

 

I don't really understand your disapproval.
