Yes. 

 

Good gun handling, view range, turret, premium rounds. Just a comfy medium. Naturally however being a tier 8 you're going to get shat on a lot of the time by tier 10s. But that's 357, not the pershing.

For starters I absolutely hated the T20 and while moving to to Pershing was good it doesn't stand out much except that its good all rounder and a perfect jack of all trades i.e you can change your playstyle depending on the equipment and map

Its an excellent tank, for me i could easily win in it thanks to its good gun + decent apcr rounds. However this was before 3 5 7, and i am a pretty decent player. You on the other hand are probably going to struggle to do anything in t9 and X games even with apcr.

Hull down and snap shot all the things. But as Ezz alluded to, being T10 xp snacks makes T8 shithouse to play in general.

Hull down doesn't work in the current gameplay even against T9 and some T8 and to get around that prob. I made my Pershing into mid range sniper with the help of binos, this also works well if you are just spotting for your team and not not firing your guns - ie you can poke up a ridge line possibly with a cover of a bush and spot tanks from there, if you can pen anything from there then its all good but if not then its better to stay still and continue to spot anything that moves

 

While this is not a complete fool proof setup, with the help of binos you can spot T10 faster than they can spot you thus giving you a better survival chance against them

use optics instead, pershing rarely gets to sit in bush because it gets spotted by light tanks easily.

T20 is so bad, that even Pershing is not amazingly good, you will find it to be way better than the T20

Hate the game, not the player

That's not true at all. It has a rep for being a love it or hate it tank (I personally love it) but it's by no means bad.

Indeed many feel the t20's balance of alpha, gun handling, gun depression, mobility and vision make it one of the best tier 7 meds. It's not one of the DPM monsters but is a great learning tank for the pershing. About the only problem is it's probably less forgiving than the pershing so you could argue would have been better coming after the pershing in a player's ability development.

T20 was an absolute ball. The gun was great for the tank because 240 alpha for a tier 7 medium is amazing.

i haven't played the T20 since 2013 or 2014. i don't recall it changing in any significant way since, and the closest recent comparison is the P.43 ter. But other than the class and alpha, their both quite distinct from each other.
