We see a fair few threads asking people what their favourite, or the best, tier VIII premium is.

Problem is, this is often opinion, which is rather subjective. For example, I quite enjoy the M41BB, although it's considered the worst tier VIII premium. I also dislike the IS-6 at the moment, which is a strong and popular choice.

 

So, what do you guys think is the worst tier VIII premium. Preferably, ones that you have owned (or still do).

I really dislike the T95E2, so that's the one for me.

I don't see many owning them all to make a fair choice, like myself, so I'll do the "picking from what I got" thing.

 

I'll have to put down the IS-6 as well to be honest, even if it was a prize for mid-tier mayhem. That's not because I dislike the tank, but statistically it's the least workable one I have (That comes to mind). My first thought was the Super Pershing, but at least that gets great APCR to work with, and I don't even really like that tank.

While I don't own the AT-15a, I know I would never use it. Of the ones I own it's the stugg IV but since I own the hidden it's useless.

Tie between Kanonenjagdpanzer and T-34-3.  
I'm sure they're good in situations and in others hands, but I despise the two.... :sceptic:

Kanonenjagdpanzer, is no E25, and...ye' gods...it's giant. Feels way too wonky to be effective.
T-34-3, I've never cared for since Chinese were added to the tech tree. Trying too much to be a heavy that it just doesn't work for me. (Why the 112 didn't get painted black, I don't know.)

I forgot that the Kanonen existed. Kanonen it is.

For me, it's the CDC. I just can't seem to get that tank to agree with me!

 

Currently, my favorites would be the Freedom and Type 59.

I own probably most of the Tier 8 premiums, the CDC is the one I haven't clicked with yet.

I at least get what WG PC were trying to do with the K-Panzer, finding a replacement for the Jagdtiger 8.8 and E 25. Why they added it to console is beyond me. Betting it's something that sounds like 'gash crab'.

T95E2.
But to be honest, all tier 8 tanks are handicapped by being mostly fodder for tier 9 & 10 games. Even if they have PMM.

My apologies.

 

I wasn't being that bad though, and I don't make myself out as a flawless poster.

The thing is, I really like the tank.

I've had quite a few good runs with the tank.

I understand it.  Out with PMM, but what comes has to be different.    I'm sure some people were looking forward to the K-Panzer, and to them, kudos on making that thing work I guess.

Of the ones I own? Probably the FV4202 - it's not bad by any means, it just doesn't really excel at anything (Panther 88 isn't great either, but it prints money and gets PMM).

 

Case in point I bought the STA 2 yesterday, which is great fun - but it can do everything the 4202 can (apart from armour), is faster, far better RoF and gets PMM.

thx, +1  of the tier 8 premiums I run, the lowe drives me insane due to its lack of engine HP. The gun has an amazing aim time. I know I would run it a lot more if they buffed the HP.
