I'd have to say, the amount of russian prems is making me pull the face in my profile picture.. The fact as you try and sell it as a "newly" buffed tank is awful.. You mean, it's just as good if not better than a previous T6 Russian Premium Med. I confess, I did just buy it but that's because I'm just starting the T-43 grind :/ Crew XP pls

Very low move WG scumbags. T-34-85M was a rare but shyte tank. Those of us that have had it for a long time played a gimped version and felt a little bit rewarded when you finally decided to buff the tank and make it playable, rare tank. And then you immediately put it for up sale. Seems like 2017 will be the greediest of all the WG years because a wealth of 1 billion USD is not enough for Viktor Kislyi.

Overbuffed as is apparently tradition nowadays, though to be fair it deserves some time in the limelight considering how useless it was before.

Hmm Rudy is faster (same power-to-weight but much lower ground resistances), bit better view range, bit mure durable tracks. The rest is totally equal or clearly in the half of the 85m (DPM, armor, elevation, not the depression issues about the back due to this 2 Rudy fuel tanks). BUT....the Rudy has the better crew layout, fitting the Tier 10s, Tier 9 Obj 430 II (but not the T54), Obj 416 and KV-13. So the 85M is a good crew trainer for......errm...wait....no....no...no...ah, for the T-34-85. No other other RU Med uses that kind of crew loadout. Last but not least: Sharik :p

You get T54prot, T-44-100, Rudy, T-34-85M, Matilda IV and you 'll make a great crew. Standard tanks? Who needs 'em anyway...

so after buff Rudy is crying behind corner?

 

 

If it isn't it should be.

 

I got the T-34-85m about this time last year and played it two or three times before parking it, the Rudy and T-34-85 were simply better because the gun handling of the 'M' was atrocious. But it was the tank that caught my attention in the latest patch and it hasn't disappointed. I still haven't played it enough to say it's definitely the best of the bunch, but it can't be far off. At the very least at the moment it is catching so many enemy players out, they don't expect the increased armour, and they don't expect such an accurate and effective gun. And I haven't felt out of place at any tier it meets.

 

P.S. I just remembered, QB played it at the weekend and was laughing his socks off at how OP it now felt, one of the most powerful buffs of the new patch.

 If it would come separately without the gold for like 10-12 Euro I would buy it, as it is - thanks, no thanks...

 

 Seriously, its a tier 6 tank and you are asking 20 Euro for it, what are you thinking WG

 finally an offer that is logical, tank is buffed and I buy it now. Thank you.

 

, if only they would release Panther/M10 and PZ IV Schmathurm which were also buffed in recent patch, the tanks would be selled better now , and if not selled now   in time people will forget they were buffed.

 

So please WG next offers Panther /10 and  Pz IV Schmalthurm.

Already have the Rudy so no but very amused by comments that its not worth is because it will meet tier 8 premiums like the Defender Patriot Liberte.

 

Good joke most amusing, its not worth it because as a tier 6 Medium tank it will come up against tier 8 Heavy tanks and be unable to compete.

 

Face palm slap

Of all the T-34 variants in tier 6:

T-34-85M

Rudy

Type 58

T-34-58

 

I'm glad they put this tank on sale. Been looking forward to get it for the collections T-34's. The buff did make it now one of the better version in tier 6.

they could sell me the most op crapever for 1$ and I would still say "nah fam". Said it 1 year ago , saying it now and will say it until the day this game will go bankrupt

 

They don't deserve that money for the amount of "effort" they put in this crap.  Same shitty maps  , same places to go  , same ruski above all  , retarded RNG , retarded MM. You  want money for that? [edited]you.

T-34-85M was buffed?!

 

I've had one since they first came out. I used to enjoy playing it just as it was originally - a stock T34-85 with troll armour.

 

I'd better dust it off and see what they did to it.

​Cry a river....

 

They did the same to my beloved 112.  

 

Then released the Patriot and M4 49.

Bought because of the buff and the fact that it has full 5 person crew, including radio operator. 3 games played so far, only the last one a win, but also an ace tanker medal and a few others.

I am using poorly trained crew in it, not even BIA yet, I have not started grinding through the russian tech tree of medium tanks. Once it has a crew with at least 3 skills, will be much better.

Before the buff, this tank was utter garbage. Happy with the changes, but do go for the Rudy if you can if not for the dog, then certainly for the crew, which is the best feature of all.
