I know this thing has been in the TT forever and I have seen a lot of them in battle. I know it's slow as hell but it  has some good armor and a quick firing gun. I seen one behind a hill just showing the super structure, bouncing  shots for days. he also got a Radley's . I know not to let no one get beside  or behind me. I have killed a lot these TDs myself doing just that.  I was thinking about getting one, so if you drive one, give  it to me straight !! :P

Slow.

Butter upper plate 

Butter super structure.

PMM

Okay gun.

Better than the AT-15 sometimes.

 

Don't buy it. Buy something else with better carrying potential. 

 

Though it could dominate top tier if you're good

Powercreep prone - and the few ones I've seen around are driven by players who don't know how to use it to its potential.

I don’t have one, so take everything I say with a grain of salt. 

Anyway, I only fear those from the front, and only if I’m in a lower tier than it. 

It is not a great premium, but it’s a good one. 

Depending on your play style, how much gold you have, and what kinda tanks you really need, it may work for you. 

Honestly rereading your post, you should just get it if you’ve been curious about it. What are we here for if not to have fun?

Hit or miss...

 

Either you will be decent or you will be the reason your team lost.

 

It was cool when it first came out but now it has been eclipsed by most of what it faces.

 

Honestly, it is not worth it if you want a serious tank. It is more for LOLs.

It got buffed so it's not as slow as everyone remembers. It was back to being decent until things like the VK100 started being more common. Bounced premium rounds off the lower plate and top hatch on the first VK I met in it.

It's situational. Don't buy it.

Many better tanks out there.


Artillery punishes flankers, not campers.

 

3700Wn8. 80+ tanks with 3 MoE.

Get the Panther 88 instead.
It costs a lot less, has a turret, and isn't bigger than an O-I.

Especially with the new light tanks, you really don't want to be in a turretless mountain of a tank that's easy to flank.

bottom line get something else.

 

right now the JT8,8 is not doing well and was recently featured in the 10 worst performing vid (albeit on pc) from QB


When a person resorts to attacking the other person rather than focusing on the issue (aka argumentum ad hominem), it becomes pretty clear they have nothing else to contribute and are wrong.

Get a STA-2 instead

I have one, I like it, can still make a good amount of silver with it. However, it is a victim to all the new tanks and the new premiums. It feels very obsolete.

 

A newer premium is probably worth more to you, but it all comes back to what you play best.

​I had the same thought lot of the stats are the same and this is a tank....

It needs to be driven well.  Get caught in the open and you're toast really quick.

 

But if you can keep tanks in front of you, use environment and gun to its advantages you can do really really well.

 

There are a number of prems I would probably pick nowadays before the 8.8.

 

Namely the skorp g .... If available.

Get the Lowe, it recently got buffed. Faster, better gun depression, upper plate armor. Makes good coin too.

It's quite boring. Earns alot but even after it got a speed buff it's fairly mediocre.

It's not worth it. You'd be better off with a Lowe, STA-2, or Super Pershing.

Situational as hell. Hull down, mid range, lots of lower tiered targets - its a monster.

 

Everything else? Meh.

If you want an 88, get the Panther 88.  Faster, and still gets PMM.  STA-2 is good, but has bad shell velocity on it's AP round, and while nice, HEAT is expensive.
