OK...I have the Tier 8 , 60+ games...hits are 58% and damage taken versus given out almost dead even(not good).....probably playing too aggresive and the siege mode really demands a lot more planning.....any advice on improving play on the Tier 8 appreciated.......but I am now looking at the tier 9 and while it has faster ROF and supposedly does more damage the concealment trade-off is massive- the Tier 9 concelament sucks, its slower and doesnt appear to be a better playing TD.....would also like to hear from anyone playing the tier 9 and whether its a good play or just a stepping stone to the 10......checked a thread from 2018 which was helpful but looking for fresher info....thanks.

T8 is by far better in terms of matchmaking and how powerful the gun is vs the armor it generally faces ( at most 3 T10 tanks, most matches, usually easy enough to avoid ).
It also has better camo.  The downside is it lights up like a beacon in Minecraft the second it fires, so move immediately - don't EVEN wait for the 6th sense to go off.  Fire, press X immediately and hold down S.  The downside with it is that it will bounce NOTHING.  SPG bad at taking hits, though it can soak 1 shot reliably.

Don't forget that it is fast.  Almost LT fast.  It can be used outside of siege mode to run in and point-blank shotgun fools in the cap.  I love mine a lot.  :)

The T9? 5% better for much worse MM and less credits per match, plus no Frontline?  Pass hard.

The tier 9 is baller for pushing anything with a 120mm or smaller gun.

i like the tier 9 just because every tank you face doesnt autopen you.

 

most meds and LTs cant frontally pen you, unlike the UDES which dies to 75mm popguns on E8s and cromwells.

the t9 does also have alot more dpm, like almost 40% more dpm than the t8 if i remember correctly. so while sure its accuracy isn't as high , the s1 has the same accuracy and it does just fine
