Final stats for update 8.0 have been added.
In total, there were 152M battles by 477k players recorded in the database during the update 8.0.
Not much changes in the best performing tanks:
The tier X M-VI-Yoh continues the pattern and performed below average. I liked the tank, but I have been fairing pretty poorly with it. I like the dual-shot gun more due to its unique characteristics, but the three-shot autoloader has far better DPM and seems to perform better. WG could give the dual-shot gun bit shorter magazine reload to make it more competitive. There is already T57 Heavy so playing the three-shot gun feels bit “meh” (IMO) - even it performs better.
If you have seen the M-VI-Yoh performing well on the battlefield, it is probably since it has been driven by better than average players:
