Hello fellow tankers ( again )

Here is now my Quickreview to the T-54 Mod1

 

 

 

Quick summary:

 

The tank is kinda special. It is the only T8 Premium Medium Tank for the russian techtree. It has some pros but alot of cons. It has good armor and mobility for that armor. But the gun is just good enough for T8. In T10 matches you will be dominated by your opponents. And this can be quite frustrating. In return you will dominate lowtier opponents. But my guess is, if you want a crewtrainer for the russian mediums, wait till the Rudy is again on sale. And if you want a real premium tank, get yourself something with special matchmaking.

 

As always I love to get some feedback which I can work with.


Cheers

RagingRaptor

So the deal here is "a weeks Premium".

 

Buy the tank, get a weeks premium "for free".

 

I won't be buying.  £28 is a ludicrous price for some DLC.

It is likely to be on 15% discount during the gamescon event that starts next week. Just incase you do not want the premium time.

Get gold at 15% discount, or get it fed with special premium vehicle packages and then wait for a 15% discount.

Have it - if you are alone against all and everything below you on MM - you are God of War.

 

MM against T9 and T10 tanks - sad piece of metal... 

 

1. slow

2. poop penetration.

3. no view range

4. and inaccurate gun for snapshots

 

overall waste of money - FCM 50T best available.

Better wait and buy it for 27€ instead and even that is a bit steep. These things are discounted 10 times a year.

Another special offer that came with this announcement "Best Crew I Ever Had!" is kind of unclear with it's contents.

https://eu.wargaming.../specials/3430/

It has 10 personal reserves (+300% crew xp), but no information for how long they run for.

It also has a mission "Everything for ..." and no information about what the mission is at all.

 

Can we get some more information on this please? :3

I know some may disagree but this is a very good medium/heavy hybrid.

 

I call it that because although slow for a medium you can tank damage in this thing its got pretty bouncy armour.

 

183 pen 235 with premium isn't bad for a tier 8 medium tank.

 

Glad I bought it when it came out

Could be some more creativity in choosing "Tier 8 of the week" from WG side. Say there is a German meds are "Top of the Tree" in August. Why not to put on sale some nice packs with Panther II 8.8 ? Probably there would be many people willing to buy it for grinding credits/training med crews.

Remove it from tier 10 matches and you have my money. As long as a tier 8 premium tank is put in tier 10 matches, I will never waste money on them. You want me to do 250 damage and get a Foch 155 on me that eliminates me straight away? You want me to face 5+ tier 10 with my gun and then use gold? What's the point playing a premium tank in a match where you are forced to use premium shells?


 

A tier 8 premium tank should only face up to tier 9.


 

Stupid WG!

Totally agree. Stupid low IQ WG wants you to have a tank that is there to make credits but then you have a match making that you face 5+ tier 10 where you are forced to use gold shells. How do you make credits in tier 10? Total stupid WG.

The T-54 Prototype is a very good tank, and on top of that it is a Premium tank that can train Soviet crews! The times it can't do much in a battle are few, and while other tier VIII tanks may have a slight edge they aren't Soviet, so are useless if that isn't your goal. I use it to train crews, but when I put a fully trained and skilled crew back into the T-54 P it comes alive and shines. The price is a bit steep though, although the worlds economy has moved on since I bought it.

In tier 10, it does nothing. A friend of mine has Win8 of 3300 and is a pro player. I myself am at 2200 Win8. I platoon with him sometimes. Me with FV202 he with T-54 Proto. As soon as you get in a tier 10 matches, you are done. We can't make more than 1500 damage.

 

Players with WIN8 of 1500 and under, have XVM and deliberately attack us and kills u because they think we can kill tier 10. 8/10 matches are in tier 10, where you have 5+ tier 10 tanks on enemy side, plus some tier 10 TDS and arty that has XVM who wants you to die very fast.


 

WG is a company that has no logic at all.


 

Look what WG says.


 

I WANT YOUR MONEY AND YOU GET THIS.


 

A Premium tank in tier 8, that does put you in tier 10. WG says buy premium time with gold or real money then you have 50% more credits plus buy a premium tank because that farms credits. Once you did that they put you in tier 10 where you have to shot gold so you can do some damage. At the end you win nothing and 10 minutes of your life are wasted for nothing.


 

All tier 8 premium tanks should not see tier 10. It's not that you have just 1 tier 10 and the rest are 8 and 9. NO, hell no. You have many tier 10 tanks, plus tier 10 Tds and then plus tier 10 arty and on top of all this crap you have arty with XVM that tells him who you are. What does this mean?


 

Stupid WG logic.

Moneymaking wise,it's not the best.
 

The best is the jgtiger88,fcm,CDC and Fv4202P

 

but funfactor wise,it's a great tank
