Hi, I dont own any of this tanks, but I mainly play heavy tanks, so my initial choice was Bog Horror vs Gorynych, but not sure which one should I pick since I dont have experience in tier VIII. Also I almost dont play light tanks (from time to time few matches with Chaffee but thats all) so I thought this may be a good opportunity to get one. If you can choose from Lycan vs Hollenhound vs Dragon what your pick would be? All advices will be helpfull, thanks in advance :)

Lycan is considered one of the best. 

Hollenhund has amazing crew training abilities.

 

I would start with one of those, but if heavies are your thing... well, stay away from the Kaiju. Lol. Both the Gory and the Bog Horror have preferential matchmaking... so that's kind of nice, not seeing Xs, but they are from a bygone era when premium tanks were inferior to TT vehicles. The guns are lacking.... Bog Horror has best silver making bonus in the game (I believe)... so if you can damage with standard 198 pen, there is much silver ti be gained. Gory is kinda fun just ramming into Reds.



There is literally an Xbox 360 in a museum, and this is the best joke you can come up with?

I have to choose between the wraith and the bog horror myself, I’m gonna go with the wraith. I have the original mutant already collecting dust in the garage.

Both Lycan and Höllenhund are awesome, if you have to pick just one pick Höllenhund, it has great gun and 50% crew xp bonus. As for heavies... Kaiju is damn good powerhouse when it is top tier in small map like Ensk or Abbey but completely useless when bottom tier and quite bad when even mid-tier. Gorynuch KV-5 has very good dpm and good armor but it's gun has very poor penetration 167mm/217mm so it suffers a lot when it has to face tanks like VK100, O-Ho etc. Bog Horror/Mutant has awesome frontal armor, better gun than KV-5  but very weak side armor and less hitpoints. If you want heavy, I think Bog Horror is better choice than KV-5, mainly because it has much better penetration.

have the Kaiju, Gorynich, and Revenant (ugh) from past years.  Trying to choose between the rest, leaning towards Bog Monster or Dragon for appearance, or Hollenhund or possibly Wraith for gameplay/specs.  Any other feedback from players owning these would be appreciated.

I am going to ask the question in a different way. I am only about 70K from maxing out my points so I can pick whichever tank I want. Would you recommend buying the 6,440 gold Lycan & Hollenhund bundle AND grabbing another tank as the freebie (Bog Horror or Gorny or Wraith) or just get the Hollenhund from the OP and save the gold?

 

In other words which is better?

1- Lycan, Hollenhund & (Gorny or Bog Horror or Wraith)

2- Hollenhund & 6,440 Gold

 

I mainly play heavy tanks, so I am not looking for light tanks that have a significant learning curve.

 

Thanks

Just completed the OP last night!  I maxed out the XP because I didn’t know what tank I was going for.  I ended up with the Dragon because I don’t have but one Prem tank for the Chinese tank line. I played one battle after loading it up with equipment and supplies. I am pretty happy with it.

I have whittled my choice down to Wraith or Bog Horror, mostly because they are the most gold expensive that I don't have and I like their look.  Anyone have feedback on how the Wraith plays?  I have a pretty good idea what I'll get with Bog Horror.

I have multiple friends doing the package + bog, rent the mutant from commander mode and see if you like it... then you’ll know for sure

I have the Kaiju and it's great if you are top tier. It can be useful in T7 but bottom tier is it truly awful, like all the Jap superheavies I've played.
This year I'm getting the Wraith. The Dragon looked good, I need a Chinese crew trainer, but I read the Dragon has been severely power crept

Thanks for the recommendation. I did end up getting the bundle, but I somewhat regret it now. I expected to struggle with light tanks, but trying to play the Lycan is just not in my skill set. In hind sight I should've just stuck with the Hollenhund. After seeing some videos of people playing the Bog, I decided it's not for me. Too slow and too big. I grabbed the Wraith eventhough I don't need another premium German tank. It looks interesting though and is the most expensive so what the hell. I doubt I would've really played any of these tanks anyway.

Hellhound, since you don’t have experience with auto loading lights.
You may struggle with it. But if you get the hang of it, it’s a lot of fun.
Hellhound has good bonuses too.

I can’t comment on the Dragon, haven’t played it yet. I do like Chinese lights though.

I love the Dragon, but I often like weird tanks. It is nowhere near as competitive as a Lycan. The Lycan is better in normal battles and awakened in Halloween. If you want to try an autoloading light tank for free without grinding a light line then earning a Lycan is probably a good way to do that. It will be a new experience if you haven't tried it before and it possibly isn't quite as easy to play as something like a 13 57. 

 

Both the tier 8 PMM heavy monsters are good tanks that lack a bit of pen. Which you pick depends on how you want to use it. The Bog has good front armour and weak sides. The Grynch has good armour all around, but much bigger frontal weakspots. Both can troll people that don't know where to shoot them though. I have been playing both and having fun. 

 

The Kaiju is the weakest in normal and awakened for me. I'm getting the Wraith (as I have the others), but I didn't like the 58 Mutz before I traded it and the wraith is slower. I'll see how it goes, but it's going to be worth it if it's free..

:)

I decided to take Hollenhound, mainly because it have 50% crew xp bonus, so when I casualy play this tank it gains xp faster.

Many thanks for your comments and suggestions, all was helpful :)

where the heck is the monster tank earning op? I haven't found it yet. Does it not show up if you use a monster tank earned from a previous year?

i believe completing stage 14 of the alpha games unlocks it maybe 15.

I'm ticked off. just came back to wot since the monster hunter op and just remembered that it forgot to complete it. 

I unlocked a couple of levels of monster tanks. I'm guessing that there is no chance to at least choose one of these still, as I don't see them in my ops anymore.
