Got mine as a reward years ago in that strange WG / tank museum,  tank indentification "game". It was ok:ish before the buff, now its quite good: http://wot-record.com/replay/17603/klguns_thanks_for_the_buff_wg

 

And its nice WG, that you buff a tank thats already at top 3 in winrate:

The tank really needed a buff. But it now totally surpasses the Rudy, already known as very powerful.

 

Giving it Cromwell DPM is kind of overkill.

 

It might become one of the new SH kings, especially since WG is planning the LT rebalance (weaker against their own Tier). I wonder if I could get it and equip it as a more agressive version of my campy Rudy (then Rammer-Vents/GLD-Optics)

If you play it correctly you can wreck any defender. If you engage frontally, then...eh

The average cough cough player in randoms wont wreck it mate.......144 standard pen......its gonna be expensive/lucky even with 194 gold ammo.....oh and he only needs to hit you max twice to wreck you.....but I respect your opinion. No salt here.

It will see tier 8 OP statspadders' monsters like skorpion, patriot, liberte, obj252... and is3 (and clones).

 

Not a deal at all.

No salt indeed, but it is far worse to drive a fury or an e8 with 128 standard pen IMO. It's ok if you ask me, I'm always trying to be innovative when it comes to killing tier 8's. It should be considered the new mm system will hopefully come out this year..

If you play NOWADAYS a m4a3e8 without derp, you are doing it wrong. Its gold ammo is useless in tier 8 matches. And it sees a lot of tier 8 matches. Use the derp instead.

 

Reason is tier 8 heavies armor have been OVERBUFFED (therefore they brutalize low tiers, but they are still useless against tier 9-10 tanks).

This t34-85m is only useful in tier 6 matches, sometimes in tier 7. Same happens with rudy, but -as I said before- they see tooooo many tier 8 matches now.

I dont know. It doesnt feel too painfull to be in a tier 8 match, but in Rudy, the regular 85 and the 85m i have over 2k games so I might know what to do, and what not to do in t8 matches

 

In tier 7 matches i still feel like sealclubbing, in t8 you have to think a bit more. Overall it's a great tank for me, and i have no problems in high tier matches
