Just got the final gun on a few games before server reset. 2 top guns in 3 games, the worst of the games making 55k. I guess it kinda makes up for the insane ammo cost...

Great tank, as of right now, fighting other mediums, it feels very imbalanced, but I think once more panther IIs and Pershings get the 105mm, they'll all be very competitive with each other, no one tank standing out above the others.

how is the t-54 performing against t-9 hvys? If it can steamroll them down np sounds like its a little bit op. I guess the thing that makes it so good are the slopes and good armor that makes it very bouncy?

I wouldnt call it steamroll, you have a fair chance vs a t9 heavy, a single mistake will get you killed very fast.

Well I'd say you have no chance vs IS-4. vs VK45 and T34 you can do some damage, but one single slip and you're screwed.

How does it fare against panther 2 and pershing? owns them with np I'd assume. I guess it's biggest threats are other T-54s and IS-4s. (and well IS-7 obviously, mause it can probably circle easily if it's alone)

If it can go toe to toe with heavy tier 8's but not tier 9 heavies, that would be balanced in my book. Still have a shot at the tier 9's but only with a lot of luck/skill, is what it should be like.

Then dont go alone... it doesnt matter if your in a heavy (well beside IS4) or a medium, if you run into 4 heavies your dead...

Yes, that about sums it up.  I can slug it out with a KT or IS-3 but anything above that is trouble.  I did manage to get an Ausf B in a 1v1 but because I was on the map, Ruinsberg, and was able to dodge around the buildings and hit him in the flanks and he missed me a couple times.  I only had about 80HP after the encounter though.

Ammo for the first two guns are real cheap.  250ish per round.  

I gotta finish the grind to that Tier9 gun before I run into Skttles again...

I think medium tanks should be much more numerous than Heavy tanks. It would be better if repair and buying costs of ALL medium tanks are lower. We must see more Meds than heavies or TDs.
Tier 9 meds should be able to take on a tier 8 heavy with a 50/50 chance of winning. They should with luck and skill kill tier 9 heavies and with tactics and teamplay eat tier 10 heavy tanks.
Now the fact is the new tier 9 tanks are just tooo good. I suggest a slight nerf (but not too much, as they need to be useful in clan battles and fight tier 9/10 HTs), but  make it easier to get good meds than it is to have heavy tanks. They should cost less to repair and buy and require slightly less xp than heavy tanks.
A poster on another thread said that 2 meds and 1 heavy with arty and TD support should be a very good combination. Better than just 3 HTs and much more flexible. Thats gonna be a great improvement as both meds will have fun and be helpfull (but not OP) and heavies will be useful and still have a lot of/more fun.

On another not:
I think we must nerf panther and make it tier 7, panther 2 should be nerfed and made tier 8 and the E-50 would be tier 9 german medium. The problem is, that i dont know whether we should get rid of DB or the 3001 P. Maybe they should be made like the KV3 and KV1s?

Same for US tanks:
get rid of T20, nerf t23 to tier 7, nerf Pershing to tier 8 and make one of those patton ( i think) tanks the tier 9

I agree with the above posts. The rule for medium tanks is that they are about 1 tier behind the heavies in terms of armour/health/guns. So a T9 medium should be roughly equal to a T8 heavy. Like the Panther(T8) and Tiger(T7) are similar apart from speed. Although I still think my IS is better than a T44 as it's quite fast too.

But from the stats, the T-54 seems to be on par with an IS/IS-3.

What I really hate right now is all the whine about the T-54 being OP. Many heavy tanks still think "oh look there's a medium, no probs I can even penetrate him from the front!", but that doesn't work against the T-54 and so they complain they can't own a higher tier medium using it's advantages with a lower tier heavy.

Has anyone even seen a Panther II in the wild yet? Of the three all I saw last night were T54s and one Pershing.
Based on the numbers I do not see how a Panther II would stand a chance against this thing. The Panther II will be great at killing tier 5 and 6 and maybe even 7 mediums,  but totally out classed by a T54. And it is way more expensive to elite.

pls devs dont nerf this tank buff the other meds and dont listen to this heavy drivers in their tiger or is that they cant kill t54.

Still need 120 k exp for it because i dont like to get it after its nerfed.

I got to t44 after its nerf and

Besides they buffed t44 back i have 300 hp more now.

Reaching this level of tank is gratifying.

Congrats for all those people that made it to this level it most likely has been a long climb.

However you are rewarded with a great tank that offers excellent protection and mobility with a sweet main gun to back it all up. In comparison to the Panther II "size" the T-54 has a big advantage. Gives new meaning to run and gun.

Without a doubt a pack of these tanks is a threat to all they oppose.
