I think it is because of the good players who play this tank. I tried to get the MoE and that one is around 2.5k average damage, if it isn't higher! This tank is a deadly one if you want to use the premium shells.

 

I have 90% MoE on this tank and HEAT shells aren't very usefull in most situations. AP has enough penetration to go trough the sides of anything that you will meet.

 

It's a fun tank if you know how to play it right. -3 gun depression shouldn't be a problem for anyone who played Obj 416. By then you should know a lot of spots where you can shoot from and how to improve your gun depression. And it has a heavy tank gun, so? With a proper equipment (Vert.stabs, GLD, Vents (even though i use rammer)), crew skills (smooth ride, snap shot), aiming time greatly decreases. You still will have to aim a lot but it's a medium, you shouldn't be throwing yourself in the faces of hungry heavy tanks, flank them.

 

I love this tank, i guess it's just a matter of taste. A lot of people hate it for what? You want it to get buffed? Ok it would be OP then. You don't like it? Then why play it? All chinese meds have crap depression anyway if it's for crews.

 

Also this tank doesn't cost money to have good games at all. If u do around 4k damage (if RNG is not messing with u) plus some spotting damage you get way over 100k profit with premium. Maybe not as much as Jag 8.8 or whatever you may use to farm credits, point is that for me it's a fun way of making credits.

All china tanks have bad gundep you say? Type 59 and Type 64 would like a word with you SIM0X.:teethhappy: 

 

I understand why the tank cannot be buffed any further but one thing can make or break a tank and thats gun depression. this and the reason many dont play china tanks is because people dont find it fun to try work with a crippled gun tank. if you cannot flex in a medium tank, its not a very good medium tank because thats what mediums are all about.

 

I have obj416 and that tank has the best tier 8 medium gun in game. thats what makes that tank much easier to play, i love my obj416! i dont even feel the gundep issues for some reason, but i do on T-34-3? odd.

 

Im not saying T-34-3 is a bad tank. in fact its one of the best tier 8 mediums in game if you play like a pro MLG unicum, but most of us arent.

I bought a T-34-3 a few weeks back and knew in advance that it would be challenging to play for all the reasons mentioned. To be honest I haven't played it much but I find it oddly enjoyable. Yes there are times when the gun frustrates me but I've also managed some decent damage output from it.

 

With my small number of games played in it I'm not too keen to judge just yet but it's a tank I really 'want' to like, along with the 112. Hopefully I will grow to love them both.

Hey, I am not the one hating on this tank. I love it! But it does need HEAT a KV-5 or a IS-6. I've got my third mark on it and I am running it with all possible skills to improve the aiming. It is doable and an okay sniper since 9.6.

Type 64 gun depression is terrible considering the turret. It's the Hellcat turret with M1A2 gun, which on the actual Hellcat has -10 depression instead of -7 (not to mention better accuracy, RoF and aimtime).

Hey -7 is better than -3 and -5 on most tanks.

Yeah, but it's not really Chinese tech, it's USA. So compared to it's 'source material' it's still crap :P

Given a good MM without arty and big guns to wreck your day, this tank can be pretty good. :)

Its not really that good though. And it's hard to play. 

But! since the buff in dispersion and RoF a couple patches ago it's much more enjoyable to play than before.

Well I tried but after 300 odd games I've sold it, just to damn unreliable. Not really that bothered either. strangely enjoyable tank but too much work to actually bother playing that much so out it went.

I just got this for the challenge, but for the life of me I don't understand how they can justify the IS-6 having a better rof with a 122mm.

Personally I love this tank, if you can overcome the problems of poor gun depression then it's quite a fun tank to play.

 

That said, some more agility would be nice, it can be a little sluggish at times

I still dont like my T34-3. 

My worst T8 premium and I really wouldnt recommend it to anyone. 9.6 didnt really chance much about my oppinion.

That's funny. T-34-3 is actually more mobile than T-34-1, even if T-34-3 weights ~6 tons more, they have same engine of 520hp.

I went to China on a business trip came back and decided that I wanted to play Chinese tanks. Its weird I know but that was the main reason I looked at this tank.

 

I reasoned further that it would do three things for me

 

1) Give me preferred match making which is becoming rarer and rarer these days

2) Make credits. In my opinion it delivers. Even on an average game it delivers decent credits and on a good game it earns great credits. 

3) To train my Chinese tank crew.

 

It was a bit expense for Pt 3 but does Pt 2 nicely in my opinion. After playing tanks like the Panther II and the T-44 it does take some getting used to. I find that I can bounce shots and have enough speed to get into the fight and out of danger easily after delivering a big blow.  The camo value allows me to hole up from trouble until I am ready to peek back out and deliver another punishing blow with that 390 damage gun.

 

Overall I like the tank, it is quirky true, has really poor gun depression but it has it strong points and once you are used to it you can do well. All the premium tanks have their quirks, this one is no different.

200+ games with this tank, 56% wr, 1,7 avg dmg. So not so bad, i rly rarely used gold ammo with this tank cuz imho AP is good enough if u play it correctly (no frontal attacking heavies etc.). Tank barely has gun depression but with buffs in 9.6 patch it is very decent premium tank with limited MM, and its much much better then its regular counterpart T-34-2. Turret is strong enough to ding almost every tier 8 gun and some tier 9 and i like it. Looking forward for buffs of SP in next patch so it can be also competitive.

I think wg intends to let you use the 100mm on the -2. Else they would have buffed the gun or something else.

I like this tank but see no point in anyone getting it unless they like playing the Chinese line, so far I only have 34 games in it and a 58.8% winrate but I find it on the whole a workable wagon. Once you get to grips with the gun depression and long aimtime you can do quite well with it.
