I may be wrong but after looking at the tanks that are on offer for frontline and steel hunters am I right in thinking that all reward tanks are tier 9 ? 
 

This is just my own personal thoughts but I don’t really play this tier. Tiers 10/8 and maybe drop to 7/6 if i am trying to complete a mission but if I have the chance I skip 9 (did this in the obj284/4 line and would do it in the Swedish td Line if I had enough universal fragments) last front line we got a choice. I picked the phase one and Emil 1951, still play the Emil and sold the phase one after a few battles, not because it was a bad tank but I just didn’t see any relevance in playing this tier 
tier 10 we use for ranked,clan wars, missions, grand battles etc 

tier 8s we use for frontline. Advances and to grind credits, etc


I appreciate it’s a tank I get for playing a mode I enjoy I would just prefer a tier 8 or have the option to pick a tier 8 over these as I will prob just sell them. 

I may be wrong but I don’t think there will be many players out there who play tier(you might if you have that special tank you love to play)

What?

T9 is god tier, and for a reason. You have -2 but only +1 matchmaking. There are many lines where the T9 is tier for tier the way better tank to play than T10. The follwing statistics are from 2017. And the reason for the amount of played T8 battles is simply the sheer amount of premium tanks on T8. So, yes, you are wrong. People LOVE T9.

Since tier X games are 90%* of the time full tier X with 3 arty per team, Tier 9 is the best tier to play at the moment. AND you get +1/-2 MM.

 

* = estimate, no solid data to backup this claim, just feels

In my opinion T9 is one of rhe greatest tiers.

Most T9 tanks have the same gun like T10 tanks, so they are competitice even in T10 battles. But they do not have the same "responsibilty" like a T10 tank.

And there is still the chance (or greater chance) to fight T7/8 tanks.

T9 has the best overall, MM and tanks.

And there's no broken tanks as hell in T9. 

And as @Iron_Pwnage said, you meet -2 MM 70-80% of the time and mostly you have a T10 gun in T9! :D

 

For example, E 75, E 50, IS-3-II, AMX 30, Standard B, Skoda t50, T49, 257, ST-I, T 30, T 95 and so on.... all these tanks are absolutely fun to play and way better tier for tier!

And considering that there are so many broken tanks in T10 like chif, 279, 268/4, 907 and not to mention 3 artys. 

 

Anyway, don't skip T9, it's always fun to play. :)

Haha I stand corrected then.

I suppose I feel like I am missing out if I play tier 9s as tier 8/10 are where most of the rewards are for bonds/credits etc,

I never usually in the past. T95, standard B was fun to play. Skoda I skipped a lot with free exp, t49 was one of my most played tanks but at tier 8 and I used it to try and complete LT missions before the Ebr and t 100. Game into the game. 
 

not played the others you mentioned and I am not saying it’s not fun I just don’t play them much now as the tiers I mentioned seems to be where all the rewards are.

Not sure where OP is coming from but for me Tier 9 is the sweet spot - very powerful tanks but not egregiously so like some Tier 10 pos, -2/+1 MM, and the tanks themselves don't bleed credits like Tier 10s.

So yeah, reward tanks being Tier 9 is good imho, I would pick AE over FV4201 any day if given the choice.

AE Phase 1 is a better M103.

 

Char Futur seems to be a mix of French autoloader scout medium and a Swedish medium tank with gun depression and a bit of armour.

 

Its quite novel.

 

 

Obj 777 v2 seems to be a decent mobile heavy tank with armor.

 

All 3 tanks are novel imho.

 

Tier 9 has the best matchmaking which balances any weaknesses the tanks may have.

They will dominate tier 7s and 8s.

 

The infinite free large repair kit is also great.

 

I will have all 3 tanks when the event ends and im satisfied with this.

 

Unique novel tanks and this year the grind seems to be much easier imho.

 

A win win.
