It did get a buff on pc. I think it has 190 or 192 pen now.

 

 

Yes.  I saw a post in the suggestion forum about this buff and someone replied that wg have stated that the sp is a good performer and doesn't need a buff.  That's why I'd like to see if that performance is due to prem spam.

Wanted to add I think people spam APCR unnecessarily in the SuperPershing. I hardly ever use it and make great piles of silver with it.

 

Great for stat padding and crew training. 258 pen on a tank that meets up to tier 9 is rife for doing such a thing. I would know.

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.

The t-34-3 is by far the worst tier VIII premium.

The Brazilian bulldog is my favorite of all the tier VIII premiums, in every game if I'm not number one on both teams in terms of xp then i know i didn't do the m41 Brazilian justice.

If you don't know how to play pure passive scouting, then do not get the Brazilian bulldog, you do not need premium ammo on it, you only need premium vs the maus.

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. 

If you know how to play the 8,8 cm Pak 43 Jagdtiger then the AT-15A just as "super", it's a great premium.

The FCM/Liberte' on the other hand...I put optics on it and stuck my best French scout crew in it.

 

I run it like a ginormous glass cannon Medium. Thing kicks booty. 400m base view range (plus perks and optics oh boy) and amazing speed.

The Liberte takes a pretty specific play style, but I really like the tank. Fat glass cannon medium is exactly how it should be played, I've hard great games with it.

Ones I own:  CDC, Librete, Motherland, Centennial, Lowe, and the Freedom.

 

Tied for worst - for different reasons - CDC and Motherland.  I got the Librete in a package, then something like a month later the CDC was handed out.  The Librete does everything the CDC can do, just better IMO, and with p-MM.  

 

Motherland:  I just do not like it due to not being fun.  It does not help that in nearly every game I have played in it (39) I have been bottom tier in match where half the teams are 10's, just reinforcing my dislike/ unfun view of it.

The Lowe. It's not the worst in a lot of ways like the Patton or the t95exx but it's the lamest tier 8 I play. It's always in a x match it is too slow and at high tier it takes too many shots to kill something - if it can hurt it. It needs a penetration buff and at least some speed cause right now in those tiers it qualifies at the slowest LT in the game. ( campers probably love it )

​the lowe's gun as one of the best pen of all T8 premiums . its mobility though is pathetic and it desperately needs the 1.000hp engine it recently received on PC

I don't understand the hate for the Brazil. The HEP rounds melt light tanks, and other soft targets. Running cola and using a good amount of HEAT, I still make silver. The DPM is pretty good also.

Because people are completely incapable of actually having to do things like getting to the weaker sides and rear of tanks once they get to higher tier tanks. If it doesn't have the pen to get through the armor they think the tank is the problem.

 

As for the OP the tier VIII premiums that I think are the worst I don't have for a reason. That aside of the ones I do have the nerf, incidental or otherwise, to the armor of the T-95 may make me call it the worse.

My list of suggested package changes. Matthew J35u5 has one as well. I suggest you take a look at his too and make your own suggestions in either.

Out of the ones I've driven I'd probably say the T34 due it's very poor mobility which is not helped by a 12 second reload.

 

I agree the T34 is the worst due to it not being fun to play.

Yeah, I think the T34 sucks. Terrible aim time with that bad DPM makes it pretty bad.

The Legion.

 

It has all the flaws of the T95E2 (anemic damage, turret that stops rain from getting in) combined with the not-exactly-sprightly Type 59 chassis, but somehow does not get the same PMM of the tanks it cribs components from.

One of the few tier VIII's I don't own....and this is why.....



 

I play for fun, not for stats. But I always play to WIN!!!      Now go check my stats.....HA!!!

This thread has proven quite informative, to be honest.

You see a lot of certain premiums being suggested as the "worst", but I think this tells about as much in regards to playstyles as it does the capabilities of the tanks.

 

Oh, and not a single person said the STA-2. Clearly best premium.


You can PM with with questions, if you wish. I don't bite.

Yes I hate the Brazil because potatoe. Not because it's inferior to every tier 8 scout (premium tank i get that) and a lot of tier 7s and arguably a certain tier 6.

 

I hate it because I'm incapable of driving to the rear of tanks then splashing them with a 90mm HE shell that does less damage than the tier 4 Hetzer's 105.
