It depends what you want from the premiums. If you need credits and you have the spare income, then they ARE worth it, very much so. If you don't need the cash or you don't have it spare, then no they aren't.

Tier 8 premiums were never a good idea for new and inexperienced players.

KV5, jt88, and IS6 all have preferred mm so no they're sitting just fine, I will agree though the T34 could use a mobility buff

 

hardly, there are many tanks sold a while back that still do pretty well like the jagdtiger 88, STA-2, super pershing, and T-54 mod 1

Jt 8.8 has one of the worst win rates in t8 and that's with pref mm.

 

Old premiums like Lowe and T34 were designed to be slightly worse than tech tree counter parts, not equal or stronger like they are now. Wg totally changed their philosophy on premiums and forgot to update the old tanks.

I got my EVEN 90 with a coupon, so it was about $21.  

I love it because it's a little troll-box on wheels and honestly the way this game has devolved, you might as well play whatever has a chance to make the other side rage quit for the day.

Good advice, but this goes for all non pref-mm premiums. Every tier except 9 and 10 is bottom tier >80% of the time. Do not support WG in any capacity (prem time, tanks, etc.) until templates are removed. Not a cent! Exception: OP premiums like Skorp G. Buy a ton of them and accelerate this game's inevitable demise.

The majority of non-prem tanks in the same category, are better once fully loaded out. The only real advantage is getting experience faster, and maybe playing something a little different. There are only a few prems that are really diverse enough to be worth the expense, one being the tier VII E-25.

Lowe laughs at your lame post.

The G is not really that great considering it gives WG a lot of money and is almost the same as the WT.  Most of their "Premium" tanks are simply 5-10% better, if that, but everyone's gain has been tweaked over the years so that any difference, no matter how small seems like a huge change.

The issue is the greed by the company and lack of fundamental fixes to play balance.

WoW Classic is coming soon and is free.  I can buy a game on Steam and get a hundred hours or more out of it for $10 when they have a sale.  $60+ is WAY WAY WAYYYYYY to much money for a virtual tank.

They are great for grinding credits but not with the current MM.
