I have found that these are the most often played in clan wars for tier 8 and in tank companies and skirmishes.
Just wondering you you prefer to use most?

From that list? None, actually.  I'd probably use the T69 if I had it fully upgraded, but I don't.  As it is I've had the most success with my Tiger II and M26 Pershing, KT because it's simply a beast and the Pershing because my clan tends to fight on hilly maps.  We've also had a lot of luck with the IS-3, T32, and AMX 13 90 though.

Why would you use tier 8s in clan wars other than campaigns??? But that's beside the point. Best tanks are:
  • IS-3
  • AMX 50 100
  • AMX 13 90
  • T69
Other possiblities:
  • Jagdpanther II if you really love TDs.
  • T32 if you like to hull-down.
  • KV-4 / KV-5 for taking hits

Some clans don't always have enough tier 10s to reliably field an all 10 team, so they stick with Canada, which is tier 8 only now.

All the go-to tanks are:
IS-3, 50 100, T69, and 13 90

Good ones to also have:
KV-4, T32, and Ferdinand (dependent on map)

IS3, AMX 50 100, and T69 seem to be the most frequented.

Gold standard:
IS3/110
T69
50 100
13 90

Situational:
T32
WZ132
KV5
Arty

Just play team battles and see what the good players use.  Pretty much you want flexible auto loaders to derp on things and run away while having the IS3/110 are spearheads for them w/ good alpha.  Engage the heavies and flank w/ the auto loaders.  

T32s can be used on maps that allow for hull down and abuse of gun depression.  They have good turrets that work well for this and pretty good DPM.  KV5s would be decent in city maps where they can side scrap to put their good armor and HP pool to good use and they have good DPM.  WZ132s are useful for scouting and open fields where they can put their good speed and amazing agility to use, but 13 90s are usually a better option thanks to their high burst dmg.  

This is mostly going from Campion TC experience as well as team battles.  I could possibly see a use for the ISU thanks to it's OP alpha.

I'm curious to see whether the 416 will start showing up.

our caller usually puts me in an IS-3 since we tend to have a grab-bag of tier 8s in 'em.

I find I do better in the T69 when given the freedom to roam, and work as a support tank, but I'm the only one in our "typical" group that has a T-69 - and it's not quite fast enough to run/skirmish with the 3 or 4 Amx 1390s that the clan typically has.

If I'm not mistaken, I believe that's all I've had the misfortune of seeing Garbad from -G- in, via post mortem view the 3x we saw them during this campaign.  Tip of the hat to those -G- guys they're savants in tanks, and at least to our faces have always been courteous.

ISU 152 anyone? Seems to work fine for me.

Curious about T32 - which gun do players tend to use? Obviously the 105 is superior in normal pub games where you mostly shoot AP, but in an all gold loadout I think the 90 may be superior. Better handling, dpm and pen... but my impression is alpha is still very important in coordinated battles. Realistically what do you see the good players tend to use when they are in a T32?

105 gold is more than enough to deal with other 8's most 9's and some 10s from the front.

Don't disagree, but the 90mm still has better handling and DPM.  When you're slinging all gold generally pen is the least important aspect of a gun...
