Best tier 8 premium, the one that fits your play style.  If you take somebody else's word and blow 50 bucks and hate it, wouldn't you feel like an idiot?

Um.

I'm going to go with the T34 overall, but I suggest for you to get some actual Experience using an American Heavy Tank, or a higher Tiered Tank before purchasing a Tier 8 Premium Tank. May I suggest getting a Tier 5 Premium Tank instead? o:

I'll play devil's advocate and vouch for the much maligned IS-6.  If you've spent time in Russian heavies and TDs, you'll already know the many quirks and peculiarities of the 122mm guns.  You'll need to aim for weakspots, or side/rear armour, but you have armour that will bounce rounds, mobility to move around and get the shots you need, and the alpha + good reload in a brawl to come out on top.  Its a little trickier than the Type, KV-5, or T34, but with a little skill and thought in your actions, you can rake in the cash.  

I might also add that with 8.1 and the new premium shells for credits, you can essentially turn your IS-6 into an IS-3 (217mm pen) with better RoF.

Type 59. Why? Because to this day there are still tons of players who don't know how to fight one.

Best Value: JT88 (It's ammo is as cheap as that of the SP and does the same damage per shot but it is able to actually penetrate things, has a much higher DPM and moves about as fast)
Best 1v1: T34 (Good damage, great pen, okay DPM, hull-down power)
Overall Best: T34 (See above)
Best including non-available: KV-5 (A much better brawler and 1v1 than the others imho. Great DPM, crazy ramming power and trollish armour.)

Where the hell is the original tier 8 premium, the Mutant 6? People still play it you know.

The Type 59 is the best value for your money, best 1v1 tank, and overall just superior. However, the T34 is a close second in my opinion. The other tanks are better for your average player, as they require less skill to play, but the T34 and Type 59 are going to have the biggest impact on the battlefield, and they also have the highest skill ceiling. For that reason, I'd say they are the best of the options.

The Super Pershing is a sad joke, I never had trouble going through them, the IS-6 manages to be worse then the KV-5, the Lowe is sLowe and has the same DPM as the T34 without the ability to easily hide its hull armor and less pen on its gun, the KV-5 has R2-D2 and an awful gun, the JT 88 is built in the proven JT chassis, know for its extreme success as a TD platform (this is sarcasm, the KT hull only works on the KT and the KT alone), and it just lacks pen for a tier 8 TD, the Mutant 6 is perfect in all possible ways and owned by roughly 400 or so active players currently, so you never see them, ever. Ever.

In conclusion, you should be buying the Type 59 and/or T34, or you need to be re-evaluating your choices.

Own all Tier 8 premium tank and the most worth it for me is the Jagdtiger because you can earn the most money out of it with cheap ammo and the gun can actually kill heavy tanks. The most worthless one is the Super Pershing, which I bought because of its excellent front armour value and space armour. But did not figure out how slow until a few games later. The other 3 tanks are so so with IS - 6 being the most fun tank, but don't earn as much money as the Jagdtiger. I will buy the Type 59 once it goes on sale again.

No KV5 on the poll?
No Type on the poll?
No M6 on the poll?

I can't answer the questions on this poll when your missing some key tanks here.
i.e. value goes kv5 all the way... i stopped reading the other questions after that.

Yay! Most people are too idiotic to understand how fantastic the kv5 is as a tank.
Lets go through the list
Most HP = KV-5
Most DPM (Except the TD) = KV-5
Most overall armor = KV-5
Highest speed limit = KV-5
Heaviest tank = KV-5
Best Brawler = KV-5
Best Ramming Tank = KV-5
Best Crew Composition = KV-5, T34, Jag
Only tank that can't be harrassed by a chaffee = KV-5

Yah, it has its draw backs, but if you protect your r2d2, you can bug the buggers out of people.
Lowe, the only reason why people go gaga over it, is because the only thing these players are good for is standing on a hill and shooting targets. As long as you know how to pen, and you have some sense of tactics, the kv5 is easily the best game changer out of all of these tanks.

best premium tank is your brain...because the brain provides you skill..and situational awareness... (aiming, positioning, what ammo to use, what tactics to do..and knowing if you're in a deep sh*t..)

coz no matter what premium tank you're driving..as long as you know how to think properly..

you'll be just fine..

and also LUCK is one of the great premium tank..providing that in PUBS you have awesome team mates.. and RNG keeps blessing you with good damage and hit LOOOL!

and if you still don't make credit and exp/free exp..just rage quit and uninstall the game..and go play another game..

A wise man once said.."everything in this world is not for you"...just like in games... not every game is for you.. LOOOOOOOL!  :Smile_trollface-3:  :Smile_trollface-3:  :Smile_trollface-3:  :Smile_trollface-3:  :Smile_trollface-3:

A competent KV-5 driver will eat me to shreds. Those things can be down right nasty in good/great hands

Lowe

A competent Lowe driver will beat all of them one on one. Yea I know about the T34s great alpha I also know if a Lowe and T34 start shooting at the same time the Lowe will fire 6 shots before the T34 gets off his fifth.
