Firstly, I know there  is  alot of stuff to change in the game all the time but WG is surely forgetting some old tanks which are premium and non premiums.

Before I even start with T-54 Mod. 1, there always is IS-6 but IS-6 has pref mm.

Match making update was pretty nice update and it was pretty long waited for some people but seriously, 3+5+7 is not really working for everyone. When playing tier 8s, you will end up bottom tier 90% of your games. Very unlikely you see tier 6 or 7s. But when playing in tier 6 or 7, you sure as hell see tier 8 and 9 games too often and end up in bottom tier once again. Of course there is always something you can do in those bottom tier matches if you use your brains but yeaah that doesnt always work without spamming gold ammo.


Before match making and light tanks update, T-54 mod 1 could perform pretty well in matches which were tier or two tiers higher. After update, I often see only bottom tier matches with it and 183mm ap pen doesnt do alot against tier 10s. And since sluggish mobility, you cant even outrun heavy tanks. But what about against light tanks? They will murder you! They are fast, they can see you from long distances before you can see them (of course). And those are pretty normal light tank statics. But then you get outgunned by them since you have worse gun handling, same alpha damage as few tier 8 lights (WZ-132, M41 90GF, HWK 12) and the rest is something near that. They have pretty much same penetration as the T-54 mod1. You can get circled pretty easily if you are not paying attention. The mod1 is pretty much most useless tank at the moment in tier 8 right after IS-6.

I dont even want to start comparing IS-6 to other tier 8 premium hevies since you all know whats up with that. I do not own IS-6 but without even owning it, I know its far away from fun at the moment.

Something must be changed and done pretty fast. Do not forget old premiums when you are making new ones, please.


Thank you for reading. These are my own opinions and experiences and you might not feel the same way but give me your thoughts.

Do you ever read the forums?


Have you not noticed that MM threads get closed and moved to the MM sticky?

To be honest, I found the T54 prot trashy even before the mm changes.

T-54 mod 1, T-44, IS6, KVV-5 and a few other Soviet tanks I believe are in the process of getting some buffs, they were supposed to come for 9.19 but seem to have been delayed.
