Somehow for me that 57mm gun was just not accurate.

 

When I sprayed like hell from fixed position, vast majority of my shots went everywhere but on dead center Vast majority of shots went WIDE! Even when I waited for fully aimed circle!

 

Sure pen is quite decent and nice, but any angled KV-1 still managed to be a huge problem to pen it, no matter where I aimed.

Same here: at one moment, I got a surprise star on the barrel with pretty lousy overall performance. Which is funny, because the bundle of vehicles that descend from T-34 should pretty much automatically guarantee that it is played a lot, and people should become more or less competent in it even if they don't like it (for whatever reason). Then again, acing it is evidently way beyond me - those decent players who keep T-34 do really well in it.

I think it's one of the most accurate tier V guns in the game. I followed the advice given by ThePegasus1979 in that thread (to mount GLD, vents and optics instead of the rammer) and cannot really complain about the accuracy.

Yes, it's so inaccurate that yesterday in two games I got 7 kills (all by sniping) and 1K damage average, and this even with 98% crew and only vents and rammer (no GLD). Of course, waiting a little more for the circle to shrink before shooting from distance will help. You lose a little theoretical DPM but you increase dramatically the actual one.

Sorry, but do you wanna tell as that cause YOU don't perform well in that tank, the tank is crap? Not performing well in this tank is more likely a sign of you not performing perticularly well overall ;) Read my tipps, use them, succeed ;)

Getting a MOE with meh play suggests that people on average do rather badly in the given tank, because MOE means that you have done well compared to others.

T-34 is awesome.  It is a jack of all trades tank, the gun fires fast (gonna aim in unless you are close though), it can angle and side scrape a little (which you shouldn't really need to do but can if you are brawling with mediums).  Those tracks are great for presenting a target to a derp M4 and providing you have decent repair you will give him a couple of rounds in return to make him wish he hadn't been born.

 

You can laugh at german excuses for medium tanks being able to pen them from all angles.  Meet a HT?  Outview range him and feed him some gold if he angles - highly amusing.  Depression isn't too bad, sure the M4 is better but it isn't shocking, plus you have better soft ground resistance than the british tanks so can chase em down.  Japanese excuses for tanks are usually set on fire by your rapid machine gun.

One of the best T5 mediums for sure - not on ALL maps of course but then again what tank is? The only major downside is the HUUUUUUGE grind to elite it.

Grind the majority of my credits in the T-34 with the 57mm, is absolutely a joy to drive! One of the best MT's for it's tier for sure!

Hmm 6th sense i don't have, only Mentor/Camo, Camo/OffRoad, Camo/SitAwareness & Camo/Repairs. 404m view range in a Tier5, rocking :D

Not automatically. The T-34 is a widely driven tank, so the playerbase you have to outdo is extremely large. This makes getting MoEs easier as e.g. in a T54E1, which is a high tier tank only driven by a few dedicated people, of whom a hell lot spam gold only.

I love the gun
Enemies ignore low damage shots, so you can shoot 3-5! times before the enemy react.
That is 200! damage, awesome!

True, the armor is useless and it isn't quite manoeuvrable. But all in all lovely tank

Well...

 

Armour- MT's are never intended to have good armor, that's why there's IS or KV

Guns- Depends on your preference, most are good

Speed- Alright, I think speed isn't great, but that engine though...

MM is great, T7 will be kinda a challenge

 

Overall, this post gave me cancer of how stupid it is...

The main problem of T34 is acceleration, its absolutely killing this tank. I get killed so many times because of this.

Can't see that there is anything to complain about with the T-34.  My win rate with it over 90 games was 60%, compared to my average of 51%, so it must have been making a difference.  And that includes the grind and nothing special in the way of crew (100% but no complete skills).  It's been a while, so I can't remember for sure, but I have a feeling that I preferred the 76 to the 57 gun because of the much higher effective penetration at range and the ability to limit exposure between shots.

I hope your memories are wrong, cause the 76 is so much worse. Less exposure with a gun that needs much longer to aim than the 57? And after that loooong aimtime having a higher chance to completely miss, both due to the ridicolous precision AND the much slower flying shells (816m/sec vs 990m/sec). Nope sir, your memories hopefully are wrong ;)

Could well be.  I do remember that I tried both.  The problem generally with the 6 lbr in all tanks is that although the stats look great on paper, the penetration in practice can be underwhelming except at close range due to the bias to weight of shell which doesn't show in the stats.  There's something to be said for having the ability to lob from a distance with the 76 if necessary, and also to use effective HE.

 

I might actually buy this one again, as I am having a frustrating time trying to work out what the heck to do with my Object 416, currently struggling with a 35% win rate and xTE of 05 after 40 games.  Transferring the crew to the T-34 might improve their - and my - morale.

And just for fun I bought it again and put in my Object 416 crew (BIA, 6th sense, camo, repairs) with vents, aimer and optics.  I had forgotten that the T-34 has no gunner, which is slightly annoying.  

 

Anyway, 6 games played just now, with 5 out of the 6 wins.  I tried 3 with the 57 and 3 with the 76.  I'm going against the crowd here, but my initial feeling is that I do prefer the 76 because of its superior penetration and alpha.  I was finding it quite hard to do any useful damage, or even penetrate, with the 57 whereas with the 76 you can hit hard, duck and re-appear.  The aim time on the 76 is not amazing but at range it doesn't matter much and in a brawl hardly at all.
