Don't waste money on T-54 mod1, it's trash compared to other tier 8 premiums, too bad gun handling. Armor is useless anyway, lower tiers will spam gold on you, while most of the time you will end in tier 9/10 battles where your armor doesn't really count ...

 

Speaking about going into +2 MM, my Heavy Tank VI is 18% in Tier6 battles, 33% in Tier7, 49% in Tier8 battles...

Used to be a great and fun tank. until defenders and chryslers have been released.... Right now I would think it over twice whether I really need it. The recent ammo capacity, view range and turret armour buffs are nice, though.

Yeah, lead the charge against Maus, Type 5 Heavy, E-100 and other tier X tanks.

 

This should be fun...

Its an ok medium for players who want above average armour at the expense of mobility.

You never lead the charge as you are too slow.

Is a great tank overall. It's mobility is similar to the type 59 but with much better frontal and slightly better side armor.

The turret is stronk frontally(worse than type's from side view), the gundep is better than what it used to be on russian meds, it's -7, just like type 59 again, the gun is not that bad but you need some flanks or gold to remain effective in most situations doe to the medioka to low pen.

When you are top tier or in your own tier, is just a beast...at least it can be.

 

The huge downside intier 8 deo is the over the edge broken new mm system for all tier 8's.

Give it a decent mobility and I probably play that more often. For now only take it for a spin once in a while and when I need to grind 25 wins to the EXP Fever. 

Armor is pointless. Frontal turret armor is only a flat 200mm plate that can be penned by pretty much everyone. Hull armor is useless if everyone can penetrate you anyway. Mobility is cancer.

Gun handling is cancer. DPM could be better.

Take Type59. ruin the turret. make the gun slightly better but still useless for +2mm, take 20mm and slap it the front hull and 10 on the side. there you go a Mod1. worthless junk with +2mm and everyone spams gold at your "already" worthless armor

Here is a warm suggestion for all those who consider buying T-54 mod 1: DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY.

Personally I really like it, its a good tank if you play to its strengths and don't expect it to bully higher tier opponents. One of my best performing, even in tier 10 battles - I have two marks and i'm definitely no fluffy pink unicorn.

 

Suits my playstyle I guess.


 

Which is the point of having different styles of vehicle to choose from I suppose!


 

In other words, try it yourself if you can and make your own minds up....

There is only the one problem with the T-54 First Prototype and very unfortunately it a big problem which makes it a complete waste of money

 

..............................  Its called Tier 10  .....................................

So sad but true


 

WG needs Tier 8 to feed Tier 10

its the ONLY reason most players play Tier 10 tanks


 

farming tier 8 tanks it builds stats fast and accelerates WN8 faster when your in a Tier 10 in 3-5-7 Matchmaking

WG thinks this is a wonderful idea


 

Don't you?
