I had bought a Panther 8.8 to play in rank 8 but since the last update I have no pleasure to use it, and I also notice the absence of several other tier 8 prem that however, often saw before the update.

 

Which one have you used since the update and you would advise me?

 

Thank you

 

PS- I do not like guns that take as long as the artillery to reload.

Wait 3 days and get either the T26E5 Patriot or the obj252u Defender.

War is a Democracy and the enemy always gets a vote.

Yeah Sta-2. The panther 8.8 is really good though I'm not sure what's putting you off playing it. It's accurate and has great dpm for a tier VIII medium.


Artillery punishes flankers, not campers.

before last update I played with a lot of fun in the second line, I did a lot of damage in sniper and support. Now even hiding in the bushes I get detected in the base at the end of the count at the beginning of the game (I exaggerate but you understand the principle).
Now this tank is not fast enough, not sufficiently shielded and does not fire fast enough for me to be detected by 2 or 3 light level 9 as soon as it shows the end of its gun at 400metre of the target.

This tank is not assé fast, not assé shielded and does not shoot assé quickly to be detected as soon as it shows the end of its gun with 400metre of the target.

 

In my experience it always got spotted anyway so I tried to either play it as close support or utilize overpowered bush locations on certain maps.

The increase in light tanks running around has probably soured you on the 8.8.  I suggest trying to adjust with the tank rather than throw more money at the issue.

I always saw the 8.8 as a pseudo Tiger and it did not seem to mind being played like one.

 

Do not take it out much these days though xDDD

 

STA-2 is a good option. High skill ceiling and only sees Tier 9.

 

I like my Super Sherman but that's more because I like looking near certain death from a one-shot by a Tier 10 in the face in a cute little Sherman with a big LOLz cannon.

FCM 50t, amazing pen for a PMM tank and all around versatile tank.

You could just wait for the T26E5 or Obj. 252u.

The only tier 8 premium I have is the fatherland.  While it doesn't completely suck it's not exactly worth what they priced it at

While the CDC is a good tank, it's got a steep learning curve.

 

OP, we'll need some more information to help you. Country you need trainers for, your type of game play, what you enjoy, we just can't recommend a tank based on our preferences.

From what I understand the Lowe recently received some beneficial buffs, others on here who have it have said it's a gem to play now.

Ok, op, just looked at your tanks. You seem to like fast mediums, and are leaning towards the German tech tree. You already have those bases cover.

 

No idea what you have as far as future plans of going down specific countries but you have a few good options at tier 8.

 

The Japanese STA-2 perhaps the best medium you can buy. It's fast, agile, has a really good gun. And for some reason it gets preferred mm. Hands down my second favorite medium in the game only to the Swedish Primo Victoria which currently isn't available. 

 

The Russian T 54 mod 1, good speed and agility, with decent gun handling. Not the greatest, but it's Russian. It does have really good armour for a medium and can quite effectively brawl.

 

The French CDC. This is a bit of a strange tank. Fast, agile with a good gun. Now, it's the size of a small apartment building and the armour can be penned by tier 1 tanks.

 

After that you start getting into niche tanks. The American Super Pershing which is more heavy than medium, but makes good silver. Also for the Americans the T95E2, again not a bad tank kind of a jack of all trades. The Chinese T-34-3 is different, basically a less armoured T-44 with a slow firing 122.

 

Look at what's available and find those tanks on YouTube. Better to spend some time watching videos then spending money you'll regret.

Many TT prems are fairly cheap compared to the new ones being added. The ravioli is one of my favs. I've heard good things about the STA-2 as well. The M41 90 is pretty cheap for a tier 8 prem and is also really good if you like light tanks. For TDs the Skorpion G (or unskinned version) is really good.

Just a thought, how far could you free xp purschace to get a tt tank you may like?

Most the tier 8 have long reload times. But bigger gun, bigger hit, longer reload.

If you want some armor the m4/49 French is good, as is the is-5. Get both hull down And people will be cussing you out. Lol lol

For huge lol’s my su 100y is ridiculously fun to run. Especially top tier it’s hysterical to one shot everything.

But of all my tier 8 premium tanks, most well rounded with gun handling armor, and speed is the is-5. That tank is a straight up beast

The lowe is precisely one of these tank that has almost completely disappeared from the game since the last update ...
Thanks to you I will consider the STA.
In the meantime I will be able to try to tame the Panther 8.8 again but I am pessimistic, I think that the last update killed this tank.

For the TT, now I only use premium tank
