Even though on paper the gun is great except the dpm, it misses way too many shots, and since the reload time so bad, one miss, and you are dead. Buff the dpm or the aim time, and voilá, problem solved.

Wanna hear your thoughts

Agree with all. All the buffs didn't really change that much. It's a hulldown target practice when it finds some.

Even if you buffed all the T34's soft stats to match the T29 it would still be a tier 7 platform with a bigger gun, which tend to pretty underwhelming at tier 8.

 

Right now I'd take a T29 with 1500hp over the T34 at tier 8, the T34 is straight up worse than the T29 at everything except alpha and pen.

Only thing the T34 has going for it is pen and a mantlet, which results in a ptetty useless tank

Seriously, the T34 is so much worse a platform than the T29 it's not even funny, and the T29 is already a bit clunky at tier 7 so the T34 is absurdly bad at tier 8.

 

Despite the 2 tanks having identical hull/tracks with the same P/W ratio and almost identical weight, the T34 gets 30% worse ground resistance and it's only got 2/3rds the turret traverse with less hull traverse too (again, T29s are already vulnerable to getting circled, but the T34 can be circled by heavies).

 

Slow, can't turn for crap, the hull is paper at tier 8, huge side profile, bad dpm, bad gun handling.

I know people are doing magical things in that tank, but I'm not one of them.

 

The gun handling is, as already said, simply terrible. Then a little bit mobility and power/weight ratio would be great too. As a hull-down warrior, that thing needs ages to get into position and retreat.

 

Once this tank was much better then the Löwe, but nowadays it needs a good buff.

Buffing the T34 doesn't put any extra money into WG's pockets, so it's probably very low on their to do list. (Turretroof buff wouldn't be too much to ask, along with gun handling and reload)

I disagree with that. Buffing that thing, would bring money into their pockets.They did it already with the Löwe and that thing sells much better now.

It needs a FV4202 treatment, either give it better mobility or better gun handling, the armor can stay weak.

So you want 50mm hull, 226pen and hit for 230? sounds good to me! :trollface:

My advice would be, don't park next to useless and see if that helps.

Having not long just starting playing it I can agree. Get hull down, farm and win. Great tank, its quickly becoming on of my faves.

With abysmal dpm, bad turret armour and bad mobility.

You have seen how premium tank population spikes when they buff some of them right? T34 sales have stalled, and the population of it hardly goes up. So did the Panther M10 and the T-34-85M that no one bought. Buffed it and put it up for sale and the population did double overnight on both of them. STA-2, Lowe and M4 Rev did more or less the same after their buffs. Their population did spike again.

 

T34 needs some attention. Pen and alpha is the only good thing about it. But in the current meta it's no longer something special. And there is no need to have that bad DPM and aim time. Buff those two to competitive levels again vs other tier 8 guns of that caliber. And people will come back to it. As atm, I prefer to train my upcoming T32 crew in the T14 more so then the T34. As it's easier to do well in that one consistently vs the T34 for crew XP.

T29 is still the best tier 7 HT around. More versatile tier for tier then the T34 ever was.
