It doesn't really pad wn8 that well as the expected values for high wn8 are very high in it. I play the Wolverine and can get higher wn8 scores in it doing less damage. If you are not that great in a T67 and play it, you will actually lower your wn8 compared to most other tanks of the tier. The only players that hate the T67 are fail rerollers and fail clubbers that are getting out clubbed by higher skilled T67 players.
If look at the win curve of this TD, it is clearly OP as on average a 45% WR player will perform at their level and a 49% WR player or higher will overperform (wrt win rate) in it.
But since it's a OP tank it is horrible to pad WN8 in it, since many good players play this low tier tank and WN8 is graded on a curve. OTOH it is a great tank to pad win rate.
If you want to pad WN8, you need to find a generally despised tank and make it work somehow. Example, as a ~600 WN8 player I decided to go for the batchat 25t. I grind up the light line and stumble upon the amx 40. I did decent (for the time) in it, and ended up with a WN8 of 1457 in it. It's a generally despised tank but I made it work. If I had stuck with it it would have been a perfectly fine WN8 padder for me.
EDIT: as seeing the updated curve, even 40% players perform at their expected level and 47% players overperfom in it.
