Is it just my impression or is the new T-29 actually pretty good?

I've played a few games with it and it seems very fun. In previous years these reward tanks have mostly been boring and frustrating to play, and I just leave them to collect dust in my garage, but this thing has almost everything except armor, which most tier 3 tanks don't seem to have anyway. In fact I think the gun hits a bit too hard for its tier considering the relatively high rate of fire and acceptable aim time. Also the protective MM of tier 3, almost forgot about that...actually does tier 3 get protective MM? I only seem to face tier 3 tanks in this. Maybe it's just because there are so damn many of these T-29s out there today.

There is a reason why they said it is too OP for the tier, but that does not seem to matter on Christmas time :D 

Afaik T3 cannot see higher than T4

It was suppose to be the wg birthday gift. But was too OP. So now it's given as xmas gift tank. Presume it's been nerfed but don't know.

I played 3 battles, all 3 were Ace Tankers. So...

1) Tank is good

2) I am good

3) I don't understand Mastery Badges mechanics

4) It's a bug

5) It's Christmas gift from WG and every battle in this tank is rewarded with Ace Tanker

 

I don't like accuracy on the move and 2 Radio Operators. My T-43 crew don't fit :(

Found that a bit silly as well. But I guess those 2 radio operator are a logical part Wargaming's grand vision...we can't have too much fun! /s

On Tank.gg from 9.19 when it was added to the list, and 9.21. There is no difference on stats or armor.

T-28 F30 has 2 radio operators to. I only have one in my A-44. And then a second one with 3 skills for the T-28 F30 alone.

Yes, I played one game in it, fired one shot, scored one hit, then got fragged. Ace tanker. :unsure:

 

Free tank, free statpadding. Until peeps get better in it over the next few hours.

It has the same HE pen and caliber as the BT-7A and GrTr. So it will be effective I suspect. Considering the T-29 has less armor then it has HE pen, and I suspect tier III is full of them.

 

Edit: Just played one game in it to see and aced it. Everyone used AP, me and a second guy did spam HE. We did 100 to 200 damage pr shot. So we just double tapped anything going across the road on Ruinberg from the 8 line. I did 800 damage, he did 1K. Tho ofc, the odd 50 damage shots head on did occur. But at the side it was high rolls all the time.

But isn't it still top 1% in last 7 days, so in fact today? When I finish 6th in win and 10th and 12th in defeats with so many people playing it, it doesn't feel right. It's just nearly impossible.

Then leave it alone for later then. When there are less T29's about. But just go full HE. It's easier then spamming AP. At least today. I got Ace on 600 xp with 800 damage on a full HE load.

Did see one. He was HE to death. And if they use HEAT, they will get you down. And you have to go 100% gold. As they have more armor then you have AP pen head on.

Three battles in the T-29, three wins, three Ace's, and do you know what, it was fun, a nice tank, can't complain at all.

Is OK task. Feels more accurate than the BT7Art, but because is slow, we cannot go all crazy with it. 

That is why we push so many good shots with the HE. 

 

And yes on my first battle got Master Ace....... bonkers....
