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.

Personally, I would narrow it down to a few vehicles.

T95E2, Kanonenjagdpanzer, IS-6, M41b Brazil.

 

T95E2: While I actually like this vehicle, it has incredibly weak armor but is still capable of a random bounce or two, the penetration is sub par and the premium round is still somewhat low, the gun handling is pretty poor for its mobility so it is questionable for snap shots and firing on the move, but it has good mobility for its size.

 

Kanonenjagdpanzer: I dont actually own this vehicle but it seems to be caught in some kind of limbo between Jagdtiger 8.8 and E-25 and just doesnt seem to work out very well except in a select few scenarios.

 

IS-6: Again, dont actually own this one but its armor is thin and relies entirely on angles to bounce and the gun handling is poor. Noob friendly for sure but not really a great vehicle.

 

M41b Brazil: I own this one and it is one of my least played premium vehicles for one simple reason, no AP round. The only way to really be competitive in this vehicle is to spam HEAT rounds and lose tons of silver. If this vehicle got an AP round, it would be a very enjoyable vehicle.

 

These are just my opinions of course and others will vary.

It's a subjective , loaded question......I use my Legion to earn silver since it has cheap standard ammo and can do enough damage to net 50-60k in a quick winning game.   I like my Legion because I enjoy trying to do well in tanks other people say are $hit.

 

 

I only recently picked up the Legion in the Chinese mega bundle, i haven't put a decent crew in it yet (i just started 2 brand new 75% crews), same with the 112 & T-34-3.

 

To me the Legion plays like a Type 59 that has better view range, better pen, better gun handling but see's tier 10.  People aim for the massive view port rather than anywhere else on the tank so keep moving and they miss a lot.

112 for me. I was hoping for the armor buff from pc in the 3.6 update, guess we will see what happens for 3.7.

 

​Don`t hold your breath... It`s not fun right now, that`s for sure so propably that`s also my pick. But I wouldn`t expect that buff before the end of the summer.

The thing is, I really like the tank.

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

Me too, kjp is a decent premium TD. I like it.

 

For me the 4202 is a steaming pile of crap an the JT88 is no longer a good purchase.

I have a lot of premiums and I think the worst has to be the Brazil:

 

  1. Poo health
  2. Sees tier 10s
  3. Would have no problem with tier 10s if it had an armor piercing round
  4. Has 3 ammo choices, HEP/HEAT/HE
  5. Some people still don't understand HEP is just HE with higher pen in this game
  6. 4+5=redundant third ammo choice that is an utter waste (HE round, the low pen one)
  7. Its only non HE based round is HEAT
  8.  HEAT is a premium round
  9. Heat bounces off angles and fails to pen spaced armor frequently
  10. Tier 10s and 9s which fights often have either thick or angled armor, some have both
  11. The gun fires unhistorical ammunition.
  12. The gun should fire an APFSDS round
  13. The PC German one has an AP round
  14. Going HEP/HEAT/APFSDS or HEP/HEAT/APCR or HEP/HEAR/AP would fix problems 2-13.
  15. I would fully recommend the tank if you implemented #14.

SP.  I hear it's a high performer stat-wise but I'd love to see the average profit vs. other tier 8 prems.  I'd be willing to bet that it's performance is based on apcr spam, which defeats the purpose of a tier 8 prem.

That tank could really use a pen buff.

T-34-3 and Brazilian Bulldog are tied for worse.  And the Kpanzer isn't that bad really if it doesn't see tier X.  It should have had pref match making but still not as bad as the two I mentioned.

1. T95E2

 

2. IS-6

The IS-6 used to be one of my favorite tier 8 prems. Now a days it just feels flabby and power creeped. Sad thing is, it's just going to get more and more power creeped as the game progresses. I'm not enjoying it now, but once the Buffed 112, T26E5, M4 49, and 252U come into the game, the IS-6 is going to be dead weight in my garage. Hopefully WG buffs the IS-6  to help it defend itself against the incoming power creep.

 

3. Lowe

It should be getting buffed like PC. Once it is, I'll take it off my list. 

 

4. M41 Brazilian

IT NEEDS AN AP ROUND!!!

​Well that sucks, who would buy such a tank?:confused: I don't even think introducing teir 10 lights would save this tank.

I hate the damn thing. I just can't get anything out of it. It might not be the worst, but it certainly is the premium I hate the most.

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

Given the 8's I own (Centennial T95, AMX CDC, Motherland, Fatherland) it would have to be the Fatherland. There are a whole lot of tier 8 premiums I have never been in. :(

Good question.

I'll list them out and decide ...

Jt 8.8cm
Fv 4202p
Fatherland
Freedom
Centennial
Sta-2
Type 59
CDC
Motherland
Fcm 50t
...

Currently I'm not feeling the 8.8. and the Centennial, for some reason.

The 8.8 just feels too powercreeped and still needs a slight mobility buff.

The Centennial just feels meh, does nothing well and just average or mediocre in most areas.

Same with the freedom.
