This thing is supposed to be a  reward  tank! Only WG can reward you with something that costs money... The tank is fun (let's say) to play but not that much fun for me to keep playing it and keep spending credits on it just to play it. It's stupid. It's shells cost more than IS7's FFS! More than T62A's, more than CAX's! I see the same tiers with it as with CAX and T62A, and these tier X tanks have 268 and 264 mm pen with much higher shell velocity (APCR). BTW T55A has 201mm pen... Really? So what's the point? I don't get it? It's armor isn't that good anyway, so why would I play it? To train crew in it? Honestly it's much less painful to train the crew with gold.

Would like to play it more also, but just way too expensive... Well, did play few games with the +48% chirstmast bonus and I think the result at the end of the day was slighlty on the positive side (like +10k silver level from 10-20 games) :)

Were you just as ungrateful at Christmas?

 

Some tanks are easier to make $$$ in than others, get over it and play to enjoy the tank, or sell it.

It's a reward tank. Not a premium tank with premium income. Shell price is 100% the same as on the T-54 and Obj 430 II. And 30 silver more then most tier 9 med guns. As a majority of the tier 9 meds are in the 1200 range. All of then costing more then the 122mm 440 alpha gun on my T-10. As tier 9 is not about making a profit. And HT's cost more to repair. Meds have their cost on ammo instead. That's why the ammo prices are bigger vs the IS-7. As the IS-7 pays way more if he wrecks vs you.

 

T-54 has a 201 pen gun to. So does the 430 II. That or a 219 pen gun, so not much better vs a 268 pen gun on tier X is it? As you make it sound like most of the Russian meds on tier 9 are better. As this is a Russian tank after all. The T-54 has to chose between dpm or accuracy. As the 201 pen gun "that most use" is the dpm gun, with terrible dispersion. The 219 gun has less dpm, but 0.33 dispersion. T-55A is a combo gun as it was not changed with the T-54. 201 pen, just a little less dpm, and still has 0.33 dispersion. Like the old T-54 did. So it's not that much worse off vs the T-54 on either gun tbh. Only bad thing is that the turrer armor is not buffed vs the T-54.
