what's wrong with the MM?

 

Most of the time, tier 8's will fight tier X's in the current MM. You will be bottom-tier in maybe 60% of your games at least.

 

That said, which tech line you want to grind up?

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?

 

Just , no .

Sig number 6 gone . In Armageddon - Day 1.  Note the date .

You're a weird mob . I'd like to go quietly into the night . I understand Mods are here to stay . I understand Mission / SH / CW rigging is here to stay .

I'll not bother the forums with these things . Let me go in peace . Not sure though why I cannot try and get cheap gold if it's ok for others to do .

Like u, I am a starter here, everyone told me not to go tier 8

i got a 112

two words: NO REGRETS

really it’s ur choice though. If u want super heavy go mauerbrecher (not recommended though), all rounder, t26e5. Pref premium, go 112. Amazing armour profile with okay gun and great mobility.

Dont buy mausblunder, get yourself a lowe if you wan german HT. E5 need higher skill to work, but yeah, its good and pretty cheap at that.

Even I don't want to play ANY t8 prem with the current MM solo or platooned and I'm in the top clan wars clan on the server... Do you honestly think you are going to have fun then? Nope, so get a t5 pref like the churchill 3 or the kv-2R i guess is still ok.

Obj 260 Get! 296/300 done with honors!  75/75 obj 260 missions done,71 with honours! :^)

Helljumper, Helljumper, where you been? Feet first into hell and back again! When I die please bury me deep! Place an MA5 down by my feet! Don't cry for me, don't shed no tear!
Just pack my box with PT gear! Cuz one early morning 'bout zero-five! The ground will rumble, there'll be lightning in the sky!
Don't you worry, don't come undone! It's just my ghost on a PT run!

Like i keep telling you in G.chat. Grind up to a tech tree tier 8 tank and play it for a while. Don't invest money on the game when you haven't learnt how to play in a normal tier 8.

Change clan name = removing toxicity

 

VPN best excuse. kek.

Buy what ever you want. You don't seem to need or want any advice by your responses, so I'm unsure why you asked the question?

Enjoy the game.

I think it's wrong to gatekeep and tell you you CAN'T buy a premium heavy tank.

 

But literally a couple games ago, playing a platoon in a tier 7 match, and had several very powerful heavy tanks (including a few T8 prem heavies with <1k battles), sit in the medium / TD flank of Karelia. Watched him get whittled away slowly by autoloading AMX lights, and he's just turning his turret wildly, never able to land a single shot.

 

Let me tell you that it is SO infuriating to see players who don't know what they're doing blatantly sit around cluelessly and costing everyone else the game. It's like they're not even trying.

 

Don't be one of those people. Tier 6 is the sweetspot for premium tanks. I would suggest tier 7, because MM at 7 is better than 8, but lack of experience hurts in tier 9 games. I really enjoy my tier 6 premiums. Churchill 3 is also a bucketload of fun.

 

If I were you, I would steer way clear of tier 8 premium heavy tanks.

Buy a Lowe they're great credit maker's and armor is quite reliable even when bottom tier. Especially the turret, also very accurate gun with great penetration, you will rarely need to fire gold so you will make heaps of credits!

actually i know how to play the game i know i have 300 games but i have played blitz alot i know the strat here are different

 

Actually looking at your tier 8 stats you don't know. 

When choosing a premium look for something that:
 

- will earn you credits; and

- train your crews.

Based on the way this guy posts he at least appears to care about his performance even if he's approaching it rather naively. I'd rather a shitter who cares in a tier 8 prem as opposed to many of the shitters who clearly don't care. It won't mean he'll enjoy the experience, but at least he may actually try to learn so won't remain a shitter.
