i have grinded enough to research the t-44 now. so its all good. thing is, for a complete f2p, the stock grind on it seems like hell.

it starts with the same top gun from a tier 6 tank? and i have to get atleast 50k exp to get to the first actual good gun?

are medium line grinds this bad on the other tech trees too or is the only good thing about this tree the tanks from tier 9-10?

It's probably because you and your crews are new. As lines go there ru meds are among the best from tier 5 up.

With stock guns look to get XP with ways other than damage. 

 

You will have a fast rate of fire, so concentrate on supporting your other tanks by tracking. Just keep shooting the tracks, don't worry about damage until you can flank the enemy. You get half the XP for any damage while you have them tracked. Be a close support for your HTs, use their armour and their guns.

 

These are harder grinds because you get 2 TX tanks from the one line.

If it helps, the first 100mm gun is easier to grind at tier 7 with the Russian heavies like IS and KV-3 as a sidegrade gun.

It also comes researched for free when you research the tier 8 Obj. 416.

i played the t43 some 2 years ago after playing the tier 6 one which i didnt like it, prefered the tier 6 premium version T-34-85m (which i got for free in some marathon). But i might have disliked the free version one coz i played it stock until unlocking the main gun and engine i think. Since i played alot of T3485m before grinding the T43, its very likely that i had a decent crew with at least 4 skills (its not a bia crew apparently).

 

The T-43 though was a bit different tank to play. I remember at least 3 ocasions in which i had my best games in that tank while reverse side scrapping. Yeah i dunno why i did that and it was probably the first tank i ever tried reverse side scrapping (thats why i remember that tank so particularly well, and it was one of my second or third russian medium tank played). Its not particularly necessary to be reverse side scrapping in that tank, it just felt right doing that and thats how i remember that tank being good enough. Its not op, not bad, its just a normal tank and its on the tech tree for free. But as soon as i finished the grinding the modules and the T44 i sold it.

 

As matter of rule, just like all my bellow tier 8 tanks i played the T43 using Binos, Vents and rammer. Dont remember if i used food but probably used fire extinguer because thats how i played the premium tier 6 T-34-85m using fire extinguer. I also 3 marked the T-43 so its probably a very unpopular tank.

Sorry if I'm hijacking Shuzze's thread.  I gather from reviews that the T-43 and T-44 can be more challenging to play following the T-34-85 (or especially the T-34-85M), but some of the tier-9 and tier-10 tanks look pretty awesome (i.e. T-54, Obj 430, Obj 430U).  Is it worth the time/effort investment into the T-43 and T-44 to get to the better tanks in the higher tiers?

T-44 is awesome by itself. T-43 is maybe the weakest in the line but is still sufficient as is.
