I recently started playing wot again and I enjoy it most of the time, I even bought a year of premium, but there's lots of things that bothers me too.

 

I don't really like playing higher than tier VIII, maybe I'm just not skilled enough but playing tier X simply feels off.

 

I have a few ideas why. 

 

Light tanks should be far more focused on scouting and less on damage dealing. To me the higher tier should have better concealment than lower tiers and better view range. Their guns should be low alpha with high fire rate and mediocre pen, with a few autoloaders and a few derp guns.

 

Mediums should have reduced their view range a bit.

 

Far too many autoloaders/revolver tanks. 

 

Currently I really enjoy playing Jagdpanther II, going from a low 40 wr to 55 currently. 

 

Will probably continue playing up to tier VIII, so what medium tanks are best at tier VIII currently?

Defender ->hvy

Ebr 75-> light

T44-100/Prushetto-> meds

Wz120 TD/Scopion -> tds

 

All gold tanks, and just stay on the 8-ball.

Type 59, T-44-100, Progetto, Centurion 5/1 are the sorta best mediums at the moment, Some others can be great also but these 4 are the best ones in most situations. 

 

As far as non prem goes, Pantera is a good one, regular T-44, regular Centurion is pretty decent now. And i've heard apparently the Indien Pz is okay, take that last one with a pinch of salt however, no idea if it is

Wow, you must have some spare cash to splash if you've come back after a lengthy break and shelled out for a years subscription. I certainly would have waited a few weeks, or bought premium time for a week to see if I liked the updates!

Consider going up the tiers slowly because you're relearning the game. The maps changed quite a bit since patch 1.0 so is the meta since your break. Take your time and try to get your game up in low to med tiers (4~7).

 

As for tier 8 mediums, the Progetto with the new auto reloader feature and the Centurion 5/1. Tough times for the standard tier 8 mediums.

 

Good luck and welcome back! :)

Tech-tree: Pantera, Indien Panzer, T-44. Dunno about the Udes, might be a bit different at least. Liked the Centurion myself as well.

Already has Centurion AX, so I don't think I'll play the British line. I did consider buying the t44-100,but will probably just go for the regular one. I don't think I will buy any premiums since I just bought premium account.

And I'm playing V-VIII as I seem to survive quite a bit longer than in higher tiers.

Tech tree only tier VIII's then I would recommend Italian Pantera and Swedish UDES as vaguely competitive. Heavies the ever decent IS3. Lights, none of the tech tree ones are worthwhile at tier VIII as they are so substandard compared to a medium such as the T44. Tech tree TDs at tier VIII means RASHA.

I don't agree with this, the SU-101 is a horrific experience being good at nothing in particular and an overall giant free XP sink, the ISU-152 though fun with the large gun when you get to blow up opponents with high rolls, suffers from poor traverse speed and is quite sluggish with a low ammo count. I would argue that the UDES 03 and Borsig are the superior Tech tree TD's, the Charioteer too I guess though I never had any love for that.

A tank that plays great as a medium is the Hwk 30 :)

 

You can snipe as well as any medium, you have excellent VR, you have better speed, better camo and the HE shells tear holes in all the progs, ebrs, skorps and SU130 you are going to meet constantly.

For TD, I play jagdpanzer, e25 and jagdpanther II, which all have about 55 wr.

Got Cent 5/1 from Twitch Prime.

Spent 1.2M for equipment and went to play FL.

It's quite strong tank with stronng armor...

Yet, i got penned frontally by full speed EBR and got penned by Lorraine arta.

Equipment off and tank will be removed from garage ASAP.

Don't let two unlucky pens turns you off to a good tank. The turret and the upper plate are still very strong but the engine deck is huge and only 14 mm thick so a lucky arty shot could be fatal.

IMO the cent 5/1 is the best single shot tier 8 medium. Only bad thing I have to say about it, is the slow-ish top speed. I like my fast quizzy mobil tonks, and I pay the price for playing that sort of tanks more often then I care to admit.

Work up the crew skills and get to know it, it's one of the best tier 8s you can get

 

It's actually the Tier 9 7/1 with the top engine and a stock gun

 

Deffo a keeper

You are wrong. The best t8 medium single shot is the t44-100 - there is not one bad thing about that tank.

I personally fail to see the point of shooting gold ammo with premium tanks, since the main goal with them is to profit as many credits as possible. 

I usually spam gold to my heart's content when i play tech tree tanks, but on premiums i have a rule that i never have and never will break, which is 5 gold rounds max. And the funniest part is that i only shot the gold when ran out of ammo.

P.S. I'm talking about tier 8 premiums(on which the credit multiplier is the highest). Type 64,e-25,13 57 and the likes are loaded with gold. :playing:
