For the cash get the king dragon.. itsitbasicly a buffed type59 that sees tier X very good all around tank.. 

Price not an issue the tiger2 88 is stupid fun.. and the primo vic I feel plays better then the atomic.. but the atomic does have better dpmDat the cost of accuracy and gun handling

From your list, as far as Fun Factor goes for me I'd get the Atomic, King Tiger, Nomad, and Patriot (in that order). 

 

Not sure where the King Dragon fits in there. I just bought it last night after the game finally got around to giving me my "personal" offer. But the general opinion seems to be that the KD is pretty nice.

Yazi has better camo, but you can get the premium tier 8 WZ 120 1G FT from the tech tree for 10,200 gold. The yazi will cost you 13,040 gold.  The king Dragon is the best all around for a great price and you'll be able to play it on all maps. It's not a 1 trick pony.

I guess I should have explained it better.  When you research and play all tech tree Tier ten tanks in the game you get to choose a reward premium tank. There are some restrictions, but the tanks I listed aren't on the "forbidden" list like the black tanks or licensed like the Nameless. So this is a "free" tank, and presumably I'll have more choice than what is currently for sale. 

If we don't understand our tactics, how could the enemy hope to?

I'll echo the personal offer for the King Dragon.  Also, be patient for offers.  If you decide to go sniper TD, a personal offer for the Swedish flagship STRV TD was/is on personal offer too.

I picked up a STRV S1. Really like it. Getting used to it. Great for wide open maps. City maps are tricky

You are in an enviable position. I would disqualify the Lowe under these circumstances as it's available from the TT at any time.

Picking a new Tier 8 Premium

Which of the tanks below is the tank in which you have the most amount of fun? Fun could mean whatever you think it should mean. I should be getting a premium tank in the short term future, and would like perspectives on what would probably work best for me. I don't need to worry about training, or silver, I just want to have fun.

I actually enjoy all types of engagement except perhaps sniping. So brawling, run and gun, peek a boom, working a ridgeline, autoloaders, hull down; I'm comfortable with pretty much all of that. Current favorites include Primo Victoria, T28 Concept, Chrysler, KV-5, Knight/Snakebite, Borsig, STRV M/42-57.  Right now, my short list is between the Iron Rain and the Atomic. Any thoughts?
 

Vengence
Patriot
T32-A Proto
Wraith
Lowe
King Tiger
Iron Rain
Atomic
Volk T44-100
Defender
Bizon
Nomad
Egalite
King Dragon
Yazi
50TP Prototype

Egalite (AMX mle. 49) and the Patriot are probably top 3 tier VIII  best premiums, Bizon is a beast(hull down), Yazi is a stealth Bomber (sniping).

If you haven't went up the Swedish TD line, it's interesting.  Frustrating at times.  I am almost done with the tier 8.  It's way faster than the premium tank.  Well at least when you get the good engine.

There are still some severe frustrations, but I still love to play.

It can be and in many ways reminds me more of the US heavy Mutant or Bog Horror than a tank destroyer with it's size, rotating turret and armour profile.
