Elimination: Tier 8 Special Edition!

61 posts in this topic

It has been over a year since the original elimination thread for tier 8 was posted, so here's a special edition in order to celebrate it. Included on the list are the top 5 of the original elimination thread, top 5 of the latest elimination thread (premiums only), and recently released ones, both regular and premium.
The rules will be the same:
 

Quote

Increase the best tank on the list by 1 and decrease the worst tank on the list by 3. Each user is allowed to do this a maximum of once per day. When a tank hits 0, it is eliminated. You must explain your choices, even if very briefly. Highlight your increase with GREEN and your decrease with RED if possible. If you cannot use colors, use BOLD for your upvotes and ITALICS for your downvotes.

The list:


IS-3: 20
M26 Pershing: 20
T32: 20
Object 416: 20
AMX 50 100: 20
Emil I: 20

Its probably one of the better pref MM tanks, and is probably not bad as tank, but I assume it has quite shit credit making potential now and is probably worst one in the list.

Above should be fixed list (Leggasiini copypasted earlier post where Emil+Defenders points werent changed EvilMonkee's way).

 

And onto my points:

IS-3: 20
M26 Pershing: 17 - Not really that good, gets outclassed by a lot of tanks (Like Patriot).

Emil I: 17 - 3 = 14. Literal shit. Cant hull-down effectively if 270+ pen guns exist. Poor turret/track traverse, bad burst, bad gun characteristics, long intra-clip, long reload, poor soft stats, and shit premium round for unfavorable 3/5/7. Requires premium shells to be competitive even at T8. At least the 112 is limited to T9 tops for 3/5/7. One of the "decent-at-best" tanks. Even in t8 strongholds. 
UDES 03: 18
VK 100.01 (P): 17 
Löwe: 22 + 1 = 23. Quite literally the only T8 that can comfortably make credits in 3/5/7 bottom tier, reliably compete against T10 superheavies and most importantly, is forgiving. Good gun handling, excellent standard and prem round, insane credit making, and average dpm. Only downside is that 350+ apcr shreds throughthe gun. Also an excellent strongholds tank that can beat other heavies with ease.

T26E5/Patriot: 21 +1 = 22 - I'm spreading the love between different "balanced" tanks. A fast tank with a good turret, above average good, decent VR, good gun dep, good dpm and good pen. The only downside is alpha but who cares when you can play like a medium and you will be better at it than most t8 meds.
AMX M4 49/Liberte: 20

112: 11 - 3 = 8 - This should go first. In some matches this tank is simply useless while some paper tanks here can at least farm from the redline

Don't know why people are shitting on this instead of the UDES. At least this could bounce Nameless and Patriots and could actually move/snap in siege. the .05 accuracy difference is negligible in this RNG shitfest.
