In my opinion, the T-54 mod. 1 is quite obsolete with the new and recently buffed premium tanks. It used to have a lot going for it, but the Liberté and Patriot have arguably the better armor, more mobility and wayyy better pen. What is the point in playing the T-54 mod 1?

It would be quite easily fixed by either buffing its mobility, penetration or its view range. 

 

What do you think?

The only thing wrong with it is the speed. 

 

it makes money good, crew trainer. Can switch to Premium to pen if needed. 

 

My 140 crew goes between the Prot-1, T44-100., Rudy and the 140... Got no issues with the Prot-1. and the occasion you are top tier... OP.

actually lower the pen to same as is6 and give it pref mm.

 

It would make the armor work a lot better if it didnt see t10 fights and thus prolly make it a lot more fun to play and play like people expected, when they bought it.

I personally don't mind the sluggish speed but would like to see a dispersion buff. Gun dispersion buffs seem to be all the rage lately at WG *cough* Ravioli *cough*

It just got a pen buff. It's pen is the same as the other tier 8 Russian mediums. And tier 8 mediums as we all know tier for tier are rather weak anyway "416 excluded". That and it's a lower profile target with decent mobility vs those HT's. What's the point of it? Well crew training ofc. I doubt many play that as it's main income machine.

 

Unless you are suggesting you go the HT line in your mod 1 to brawl vs those premium HT's? Then I might get why you need a pen buff. But in relation to medium style play and bully flanking? No.. not really. Premium HT's might be "faster". But their higher profile targets and paper sides makes that bully flanking deal not as easy.

I think that there have been many threads on this topic already. One of them is even on the same page as yours: http://forum.worldof...ould-be-buffed/

 

Yes, it should be buffed.

8mm less pen won't really make a difference. They would probably nerf apcr pen and most likely reload too instead if they decided to do that but since they don't want pmm tanks anymore there's that.

They either just have to reduce it's battle weight or bring back tier 12 MM. 

Maybe the upcoming MM will make it more fun to play the mod.1 even as low tier.
