Hoping to gain some insight on exactly which tanks are the standard meta choice for tier 8 skirmishes.

I'm aware of the progetto meta, however I'm specifically wondering about tanks which are available now in the tech tree/premium shop as opposed to limited-time offer tanks such as the progetto.

Thanks

You can play t32 easly in FL instead t26e5.
Same for caernavon. No need the AX version since they buffed it.
Somua can be replace by 50-100, but somua is more armored.

T44-100 = you have t44 and you can have it with (-100) normal credits.

Progetto was free.
AX was free.

Lorraine got unique gameplay, and i don't think he must be in this list!

M49 is bad, because you always show your weakspot when hulldown, and they are free kill.

Centurion, never played it, i don't know.

And defender is defender...

Whats in the shop today

 

T44-100 goes without saying

T54 mod1 very useful

STA2 now buffed and worth buying as a sale item (17 bananas)

 

They are all good all-rounders

 

You just missed the 5/1 which is pretty much the tier9 7/1 with a stock gun

Worst advice ever...


Tier 8 SH's at the moment is Progetto, Ebr FL, Caern AX, Defender and lt-432. Normal Caern is fine as well, but since most people play tier 8's for credits, it's usually the prem version. The tanks mentioned in the quoted post, while decent tanks in randoms, aren't really very competitive in sh at the moment.

 

So basically, you're out of luck unless you buy them when they're on sale or got them from a marathon.

Squirmishes problem wasn't the tanks and the meta, the problem was the top clans farming, which makes it irrelevant what tanks you choose for most of the games.

 

Haven't played in a while to be honest. Is this problem solved?

The little I've played, there's a variety of tanks people use. 

 

Most common are mentioned above, but you occasionally see pretty much anything, mostly premiums though. 

 

Things not mentioned yet, but commonly seen (maybe situational and not very good) choices:

 

Wz chinese td

Strv S1

IS-3A

Centurion / FV4202 / Primo Viktoria etc with tough turret

TS-5

Lynx 6x6

VK100.01P 

Su-130PM

Udes 03

 

 

Some of those are good, some of them situational. I think out of that list VK100.01P is even brilliant if the map favors it.
