Honestly, you should not get a tier 8 premium at all yet.

This is the correct answer, however OP if you insist then it's the T26E4 Super P.

You will hit a brick wall pretty hard if you get a tier 8 right now. Reinforced with concrete and Stalinium ...

Unless you are a reroll of course.

 

If you are a new player starting with a premium tier 5 might be better;

it will allow you to learn the basics of the game without being blasted away each and every single game.

Premiums under tier 5 might not be a very good choice as you should outgrow them very fast.

 

Amongst others, Churchill 3 and Pz T-25 are good tier 5 choices to start with.

 

Welcome to WoT and Good Luck out there !

 

Edit: the safest tier 8 prem for a beginner might be the Super P but ... I'd still recommend you wait a bit ...

Yes, you should get a tier 5 premium. 

 

At tier 8, you will just be prey and will die all the time.  This will hurt your win rate which you will later regret and will have to work harder to increase it. It will be frustrating for you, and your team. 

 

You will have more fun at tier 5 and you will still be able to make good credits. Tier 5 premiums are much cheaper and go on sale for half off regularly.

Best prem there is the mod 1.  Its russian, the easiest line for beginners.  Its the most forgiving.  I know the SP is popular now because of its buffs, but its slow and not as exciting to play.

And all of you guys typically recommended the russian meds as the first tanks to play...  so why the chsnge in heart?

None of those, get the IS-2 B that's for sale right now and play that. Much more forgiving than these mediums and maybe you'll have an easier time learning to play in one of the better heavies in the game.

Hard to say because you're new (possibly) but I can give you a rundown of the four anyways...

 

  • SuperPershing was given buffed AP penetration values(192mm from 170) so it can save you the credits and damage higher tiered opponents more reliably as it used to have the worst pen at its tier (maybe). It's slow as hell though, with a power to weight ratio lower than 10, but has good gun depression and a riot shield at the front of the turret, offering great protection.
  • STA-2 was also buffed, it's a lot faster than the STA-1 now with a top speed of 55kph, making it more dynamic and maneuverable in game play. The gun has good pen and can do okay hull down.
  • CDC has the best power to weight ratio at t8(35.58 exactly) and has the fifth best DPM out of all t8 meds, it is a great support tank, however the armor sucks as it is French, and a HE shell would be happy to greet you.
  • T54 Proto is a great brawler at its tier and a good all-rounder in any match if played well, it has a low shell count, so don't go trigger happy with it... not much else to say...

if you're new and insist on a T8 premium, I guess the T26E5 is your best choice. You won't be so fast that you get yourself into trouble. you are capable of bouncing a lot of shots, which should keep you alive for a while. And the pen has improved so you should be able to deal damage while you're still alive.

 

Edit: as someone mentioned before, get the IS2 instead. you will get a great crew as well which will help you on your way.

I can only speak for myself, but out of his choices, I would recommend the SP because of the preferential MM and the recent buff.  The MOD 1 is fun, and would be the second.  

 

That being said, that is out of his choices.  I think the Churchill III would be the best choice for a beginner.  This is coming from personal experience at buying a Tier 8 before anything else.  It was the JgTIG 8.8 937 games, with a 47% winrate.

Look at the lines you are grinding.  One of the most important features of a premium vehicle is crew training, so pick one accordingly.
