If you don't want this advice its k. All I do is play artillery now anyway, could not care less if you play poorly and affect others or regret your purchase.

 

Buy a Defender as 1st choice.

If not then buy a Lowe or a Patriot. AMX M4 49 is pretty ok too.

Heavy Tank no VI is a decent choice , if you want the easiest heavy tank line to play . The Japanese Line will serve you well .

Playing K-91 makes me happy XD

too bad u got to play this game very recently. There was a marathon event to earn a premium tier 8 vehicle called "carnavon AX" which seems to be a great tier 8 premium tank with amazing pen and DPM, i realized that tank might be even more powerful in terms of damage dealing than scorpion g for example. I got it for 70% discount coz the event started right when my work was also very busy so i could play only in the weekends and at limited time.

 

had you started this game just a little bit early u would be able to put your hands in this magnificent tank for as much discount as your effort playing low tiers would allow you to have (in terms of XP grinded to get said tank)

 

now if i was to recomend a heavy tank to you at tier 8 i would get something good, try to get something with good pen and that u money can afford,  t34 is my choice. Or buy a tier 6 prem heavy instead, just dont know if there is any heavy tank at tier 6 worth purchasing.

 

Or buy a carnavon AX, that tank seems very good.

i said it seems like a good tank coz i ve seen a lot of people doing well with it in battle in the last weekend. Lots of 5-6k games by normal players in carnaveon AXs i have seen this last weekend. (Not, they were not in my team fortunately.)

Caernarvon AX is not a good HT in this meta , plus the OP is new . He should not play anything above tier 6 until he is more experienced in battle .

Thing is, the OP is an experienced Blitz player...except there's no arty in Blitz. An arty-magnet tank will be a particularly rude awakening for his 1st premium tank.

 

Personally, I'd suggest OP get an HT that he's played before in Blitz to ease the transition. If it's an IS-6, 112, WZ-111, KV-5, T34, Lowe, or such tank he's tried on Blitz.

 

We...didn't scare him off did we?

Sadly most of the toxic pubbies don't want advice or help, they just want excuses and things to blame. That's why they don't tend to hang around long.

I am going to buy a heavy premium tank but i don't know which one is actually good or bad can anyone give me a suggestion?

 

Go for Churcill 3, seriously. nothing can go wrong with it, it can train all crew types, will never have silver loss, Soviet bias. Gogogo.
1 clean hit to an enemy tank is enough to make my day in battle.

exactly +1 , the main reason for that too are the negative "bad mm fix plz", "fix this fix that", "make the game easier plz", "fix everything" kind of players that keep scaring new players away with their crying and whinning.

yeah, maybe he could actually avoid any HT then... what all these tanks u mentioned have in commom is the turret, all them seem to be arty magnet to me, he could try some medium to make credits

then if thats the problem. 

 

or even better, get an LT.

I vote for LT.

 

Because nothing is as fun as a direct hit by T92 SPG on a full-speed T92 LT.
