Tier viii is my nemesis, sub 50% WR’s on both accounts, ix is fine...

I’m at my wits end with it, I just can’t seem to buy a win no matter what tank I try...

T-54lwt is 60% WR on main account so I used to be able to do ok...

Anyone else struggle at viii?

Anyone got any helpful advice if there’s something different about viii vs ix?

In the wise words of the Warrior Sage Mjr_Eazy .... 

 

Replay or it didn't happen! 

 

However being serious I have noted some odd things in the past few days, including some truly appalling results where a plethora of shots went wild or bounced.  Tier 8 and 10 have had this for me, but also tier 5 has been strange.  Don't get me wrong I have had some cracking games where I have been performing quite well for me top 2 in T10 regularly, but still losing games.  Also in my strongest personal tanks I am bottom tier more often than not and with 5/6 tanks from the higher tier and this can make it tougher too. 

 

I can't swear to it, but I think I am seeing newer or at least less experienced players rushing a bit more than usual and I know my play style tends to put me at at front (when I should sometimes hold back longer) 

 

When I can be bothered to actually address these 'glitches'  what I do is slow everything right down ... Go with the mass of players (comfort in numbers) - play sneaky and choose tanks with good balance to play.  

 

Remember though that this game does have peaks and throughs and if it is bugging you at T8 take out something from the lower tiers or go for a picnic at T9 or 10.

Looks like what drags your 30 days stats down at tier 8 (accross all tiers actually) are heavies (Lowe is fine though).

You are struggling particularly with the IS3. I can not say what you are doing wrong in it, though, but that would be my starting point.

 

However, I think that the techtree at tier 8 has been powercreeped by premium tanks (and bad players driving them).

Thanks all...

I just can’t bring myself to hold back so that’s probably part of it...

Plus the teams, and me dying too quickly and cheaply contributes to my team unravelling...

My WN8 is holding up though so it feels that whilst my WR is in free fall I am still contributing...

I’ll try and not be at the front so much and avoid playing heavies and maybe that will help ;)

I feel in the good old days you could charge around run away and assess. Nowadays due to changes and noobie influx you need to be more mindful and see what they are doing then follow and be an experienced support instead of an experienced frontliner let the noobs do what damage they can do while you can farm with your experience..

Tier 8 has become the odd tier out.

Tier 9 and 10 ave very equal but tier 9 is stronger then tier8. So as a tier 9 you can hold your ground against tier10 or bully tier8.

 

Tier 7 is like tier9. They have been buffed to compete against the IS flood and premiums in tier8. Yet can bully tier6.

 

So tier8 has relatively close matched tanks the tier bellow and stronger tanks the tier above. Plus must fight all the premium tanks in this range. 

Tier 8 also has the horrible gun grinds that leave you underpowered in near stock form.

It's not working so far...

I say to myself "don't attack, don't attack"

All I hear is "Attack! Attack! Attack!"

...

It is true that your wn8 is not in line with your wr

Lately I have been focussing more on keeping a decent wn8 and damage/tier rather than wr. It helps staying cool when games go wrong and, in the long run, I hope wr will follow.

Aye that’s my theory, if I keep WN8 up then I am contributing and should in some...

Playing a lot of stock is-3 to grind is-8 to use event certificate didn't help...

I’m using T-54lwt to try and fix tier viii stats man I love that thing...

58% 30 day WR one account and 57% the other which is awesome for me in viii...

It suits my Kevin Keegan/Kosovo all out attack mentality ;)

I cant win for shite in tier 8 unless I'm running or rather crawling around in the Lowe, any other tier 8 makes me very nervous when playing. I've tried using TD's in tier 8 but every time my team are obliterated and I'm called the noob for getting the highest damage lol
