My Matilda stats say your all scrublicious. Totally op tank with no possible peers! 1500+ damage per batle over a large sample size.

 

 

 

On topic however I think this is on my purchase list for Chrissy.

Is the gun the same one that is on the standard T-34-85?  Along with all of it's characteristics? The wiki does not show any of this tanks attributes.  

It's got the stock 85mm, so 160 damage, 127/167 AP/APCR and great gun that isn't great.

Will it be available on the tech tree (buy with gold)?

I can't see why not as it's completely balanced, but WG works in strange ways.

Does it worth the dollars?

As long as the premium and gold are useful too I would say it is.

Don't know about you, but I'm no longer interested in premiums with meh guns that don't get restricted MM.

So long, and thanks for all the fish

I bought the tank because i'm interested in levelling a medium tank crew for the Russian line.

 

Might as well have some fun doing it (compared to the Matilda lol).

I know, but I still think it's rich of WG to force you to face tier 8 battles with those gun characteristics that can never improve.

 

Does it deserve to see tier 8s any more than a Type 59 should see tier 10s? According to WG, yes. What do you think, however?

Take it as a challenge. For those times when i'm facing T8, change the gamestyle, try to work the flanks a bit more, and if all else fails, die gloriously in combat! :)

Type 58 gets it just as bad, besides, the gun isn't terrible, it's not great but it's workable, and the T-34-85M is much better than something like the Pz.kpfw IV Schmalturm which gets a decent gun but sucks every else.

You know you bastards, all talking this tank up, you know whats going to happen?

 

Either every 2nd tank will be one, and or

Wargaming will nerf the crap out of it...


Sarge: What a way to go. Killed by my own mechanical creations. I'm sure there's a philosophical lesson to be learned from all this.
Simmons: Something about the dangers of technology and the unwavering pride of mankind?
Sarge: No, something about hiring better help that doesn't just stand around watching you die!

I don't believe we should kill all the stupid people. Just remove some of the warning signs and let nature take its course...

Much better... Sigh, might have to get one so it can finish the collection, and rust quietly beside the other T-34's in the garage...

Tier 8 Is-6 is better at money making

Tier 6 A-43 is more fun to play

Tier 9 T-54 best for crew training

 

so what this tank good at  ?

 

it's not bad stat wise just kinda meh...

It's cheaper than an IS-6, fun is objective (I find it more fun than the A-43, which I hated) and unlike the T-54, it can use my 62/140 crews without a penalty.

Nice read about this new tank and it's got to be better than the Matilda IV for training Russkie medium crews, so might just buy one at Xmas. What I'd like to know is what is the engine's % chance of fire and does it have any quirks like getting ammo-racked easily (e.g. T-54), easily tracked or fuel tanks damaged easily knocked out (e.g. Super Persing)?

 

Not too keen on the no pref MM thing though.

I haven't noticed it getting unusual amounts of module damage, fuel tanks have gotten damaged a couple of times but that's normal for a Communist tank, no fires though.

After playing it for an extended period of time, how often would you say it sees tier 8?
