Having seen D_M_G's threads, I decided to compile a complete collection of all the tier 8 vehicles in a thread of the WotLabs style; this took me quite a while. My ratings are very subjective, and, due to the extreme number of vehicles in the tier, quite short, but I hope you enjoy anyway. 


Ratings are done in the style of WotLabs.

Most players of most skill levels tend to mesh better with alpha rather than pewpewpew, though in some cases (i.e. comet) this rapid fire capacity is useful; however, in a slow tank with meh armor like the AT-15, the poor alpha is both difficult to use and has no fear factor against those who would simply trade fire against you.

I actually agree with this list.

 

All I have to say is move the 13 90 up, and T28 prot down.. Otherwise, very solid list

Woah I like the straight up honesty in each description though. :D. Very interesting to see the strengths and weaknesses of each tank.


Say... have we met in game ? I think I recognize your username...

 

 

 

 

EDIT: Although now thinking about it, I disagree with the Jagpanther 2 and think it should be down one. Theoretically it’s a great tank if given the fact that you have someone to hide that front plate behind and it’s on flat ground level and that the reds are actually on the same side of the map with the perfect cover. For some reason  Every time I see a JP2, it’s such a meme-able tank because it’s so friggin big but st the same time it moves fairly quickly and 95% of all of the JP2s I’ve seen literally yolo charge :D

My opinions:

 

Move IS-3 to bottom of purple division/top of stat padder

Move T-44 Mod 1 to near top of purple

Move T32 to mid purple

Move Pershing very, very far away from where it is

Move T49 to potato

Move SPersh to mid stat padder

 

Other than that, very solid list. Low ranked ones done well.

JT 88 should be higher. Much higher in fact than most of your stat padder. You really think the T28 Proto is better? It is interesting to see people list them all out tho! Great post!

The t34 is missing and should probably be in the stat padding division if not the full on purple.

I'm good at this game I promise

IS-3 over both the IS-5 and IS-6?

 

Please discuss. I have none of them but can obviously buy the IS-6, am getting closer to the IS-5 (which I will buy), and I'm getting close to the IS-3 as well.

Just a few issues.  Namely, most of them.

 

Centurion > Pershing.  Both are slow mediums with a tough turret.  The Cent can actually reliably penetrate stuff with AP and thus has useable DPM.

 

SU-101 isn't horrible (move to PFF division).  Arm it with the D54 100mm and rip things up.

 

AMX 13 90 is a freaking ninja assassin of death and has my highest tier 8 light win rate.  Try again.

 

The T49 was iffy to begin with, but the gun has moved from mostly unreliable to extremely unreliable with removal of 2/3 of the fun.  It's pokey for a light tank as well.  Potato.

 

Caernarvon isn't what it used to be... it's fifty times better.  Who needs alpha when you can snipe cupolas across the map all game long?

I didn't find the IS-2ich the least bit fun

 

The VK 45.02A is an awesome medium

 

KV-4's time has more than passed... like a KV-5 without any of the fun

 

JT88 was rip-roarious perma-tracking joy even before its unnecessary but welcomed 10.5 gun addition

IS-3 is the best IS clone

It's fast, accurate, has excellent pen, and a solid turret.

 

IS-5 is slower, and has ridiculously terrible accuracy

IS-6 is also slower, is a little less accurate, but more importantly, is easy to penetrate through the turret

So other than the ability to generate more credits, why the heck would someone spend money on either of these two when you can get the IS-3 free?????
