TLDR: T25/2 is actually ok.

 

 

First time i tried this tank i was shaken how bad it is compared to hellcat, i must have missed something or i was new and with lack of understanding for positioning and gameplay mechanics. So i did what every "tank" chaser would do, i gave up on idea of having a t34 (only prem i had at the time) with a bigger gun, it was not worth the painfull grind.

 

Rebought the vehicle yesterday.

This is pleasant surprise, every thread i found on this tank was "this is garbage", "replace it with hellcat". Well, playing rev4 as a main cash cow... this is better at lower tier. Play it like paper medium with slow gun traverse and dmg/wins just rack up... Im now sad that next tank in line will lose this medium tank mobility and intense ROF to get armor that doesnt work in the firstplace (ghould, cough, ghould)....

What are your experiences with this tank?

Back in the days, Hellcat would rekt IS-3 and songs would be made about it. #Rip Gooples

When i grinded the american TD line, Hellcat got the nerf, so in my opinion Jackson was the better one,

Nowdays Hellcat isnt what it used to be, and i stopped playing Jackson due to a 65% wr in it.

 

In my opinion, Both T25/2 as T25AT are lovely tanks to play. But its not anywhere near the T28 and T28 Prot, or T30 and T95 game play. This line, only gets better untill you hit the X line

 

 

*edit. Found it, Glorious poet from Gooples*

 

"TIER 6"
OH MY, CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT?
I IN TIER 8 IN MY HELLCAT
AN IS3 POINT GUN AT ME
IS EASY KILL HE THINK FOR HE
BUT I TIER 6 AND I AM BOLD
MR IS3 I HAVE LOADED GOLD
HE THINK WORST I DO IS MAYBE TRACKED
BUT POOR IS3 GOT AMMO-RACKED

Dude,if something is just ok, it usually is far from being a gem.

Had played the vehicle long time ago and it was not really bad, not really good either.

It happens if u have become a veteran player meanwhile, when u grind a new line , that you can perform better in it due to u knowing better the game mechanics, current meta etc. etc.

For me at tier 7 TDs, the Challenger ,the IKV 90 or the Jagdpanther are better.

But it can be suiting your playstyle, so have fun in the grind.

I thought T25/2 was pretty good. It's mobile and it has gundepression with a good gunhandling.

roughly 40-50, restarted it with 50sh games played 43% wr.  Im currently 52-3%wr and going up. Might even 2 mark it before i finish the grind.

PS. I could fire analyzer to give you exact numbers if you want.

For me at tier 7 TDs, the Challenger ...

 

:D Good joke! Maybe it's better now it's been buffed and got a new top gun but it was dreadful for a long time before that including when I played through it.

 

I'm another fan of the T25/2 - the medium tank masquerading as a TD. I play it as I would a medium and it's one of my favourite mid-tier tanks as a result.

The whole line is made up of transgendering tanks, going from lights to mediums to heavies. A pleasant experience, I must admit.

Thats a line i might take one day when i decide to want shtbarn.. the moment i do they will rebalance it. Just like they rebalanced every damn light tank and left the only tank i wanted untouched... (wz132-1). Ofc i grinded it out and never bought it.

I was thinking of getting it too back in the day but stayed away because it looked like a 1 tier higher version of the Hellcat with more hitpoints and only slightly better pen with the top gun. I don't know if i should give it a try since i have stopped playing TDs regularly for a long time...

was it buffed, I kind of enjoyed it previously anyway , it was quirky, if the gun is better then - yippee  as that low damage was strange for a TD

This be a slow head turning med tank i swear, gun is ok (prem is beyond godlike for t7), mobility is better then revolver (i think it leaves even pershing in dust, almost like t20 with worse track traverse), 10 degrees depression... its a no brainer when youre accustomed to the game a "bit".

I am on that TD. Only played a handful of games but not really getting along. Will keep at it as I enjoyed the Hellcat.

Funny how you describe how you play the T25/2. That's exactly how I describe it as well: I play it as a medium if the mm is alright. For example on Live Oaks I like to play the east aggressively. I rebought it as well and put a female crew in it. I don't play it a lot though, because of periods full of trash teams.

 

Funny also that you say the armor doesn't work on the Proto. I played it like a heavy, leading the charge on the front when toptier and when midtier it's fine to join the heavies as well, as it's quite mobile after the speed buff. I do regret to sell it though, but I need a high tier td for personal missions...

​Had mine researched for over 2 years, but never purchased it as I stayed with the Hellcat. Finally took the plunge last week and have played a few games as stock - struggling with it at the moment, it has good gun depression and aim time (1.63s), but the stock gun is iffy (0.35) and pen is average (160mm). Hopefully the grind will get easier when fully upgraded. :unsure:​

Next gun is virtually the same, you dont fight people frontaly unless very favorable position. Flank and even t9 have a problem with you if you decide to load prem.
