IS T55A really worthless? or just I think so. compare it with T54 to see how weak it is. and it is not even a premium tank to earn profit for the player who own it.

what would be the motivation of a player to pass all those missions to get to it? other than to be able to start obj260 missions.

I don't bother trying to complete the missions hence i'm only up to the mission for the T28. I imagine though if you manage to get it without stressing over the missions too much, it would be a nice reward but ultimately doesn't seem worth it to really get stressed over the missions to get it.

its ok but i agree - the pain of all those missions and the frustration should mean you get a really good tank

 

same with Obj 260 - its ok but my god those missions - almost killed me :-)

The tank is a nice free tank but the mission rewards are really worth playing for.

It's still a solid med, and overall a better tank tier for tier then the 260 arguably. It could use the same turret buffs as the T-54 ofc to fit the aggressive players better. But that don't mean the turret don't work as top tier still. Just not as well. But gun wise it's kinda more versatile. Why? Well T-54 was changed to either have low DPM, more pen, less aim time and 0.32 dispersion for support fire. Or less pen, more dpm, more aim time, but you can't hit the broad side of a barn at med to long range for brawling. So basically making the tank better for more aggressive close up play.

 

T-55A can still do both with the same gun. As it has 100 less dpm and the same pen as the brawling gun. But the same aim time and dispersion as the sniper gun. So you could say it's a more versatile tank for those that don't like the "in your face" kinda play. And that aspect of the tank I do like. But even tho it still works aggressively as the old T-54 did. It could use a turret buff so it could keep up with the Russian meds.

I think T-55A is decent,pretty much what Balc0ra already said.

 

But the real reason for getting T-55A is the juicy Obj260 missions. I don't even care about the tank, the missions give very good rewards.

This. Have had 4 days premium time for some of the latter 260 missions and some nice amounts of silver as well.

I sold mine upon receiving it. Made one last quick inspection after it was in my garage and threw it to the bin without ever playing a battle with it. I was never a fan of T-54 and hated the gun with a passion so I didn't see any point in keeping a tank that costs lots of silver to run that I would never enjoy playing. Selling it gives you over 3 millions of silver and if one day you feel the need of buying it back, you can do that for +10% more. 

 

3 million credits in itself is a very nice reward, as are the female crew members and the extras you get for completing the missions.

I played it a bit when I first got it - was okay way back then (about two weeks after the missions launched).

 

played it once since the meta changed - it struggles tbh; gun is meh, hull armour meh, made of ammo rack, and being German it lacks the hand of Stalin to help it.

 

As others have said - the mission rewards are worth more than the 55A

I thought the t55a also had a weaker hull

well it has less hull and turret armor, the tank has less weight, you expect higher mobility but no, less horse power and so  less h.p./t. and much less top speed

the gun has some pro/cons but far from being a sniper so at the best judgement it is not better than that of t54.

and look at other reward tanks STUG IV not a bad t5 German destroyer,T28HTC good armor good alpha damage when top tier and no arty you will rule the battlefield

obj260 good turret armor (and also hull armor) really good tank some one may want to have it. but T55A absolutely nothing in it  to want to keep it.

WG if you are giving a tank to players after those missions please make it a special one at least acceptable one, so that players really want to keep it.

I do not have access to statistics but WG can judge how many players have got T55A and how frequently they play with the tank.

Correct, with the exceptions for the tanks, the primary and secondary rewards you get are really worth it, especially the female crew members. That's in total 20 crew members with two skills on the ready.

 

It's a huge pity that the tanks we get from the personal missions are just so sub-par.

I like it a lot, it is a good tank.

 

And I can use my very good crew from the E50m in it with no penalty.

 

There are a few nasty personal missions to do in order to get it, but it is worth it imho.

All reward tanks are sub par. The problem is that only players who managed to perform well above average got them, so statistically they are 'fine'. I expect that they will be buffed eventually, but for now the best thing you can do is keep them in your garage and enjoy the female crews (and the camo schemes). Don't ever do the higher tier missions for the credits: you will spend far more silver than you will get out of the mission rewards.

I have missions turned on, but do not actually try and specifically accomplish them. Most of the time I forget that they exist. But the rewards when they occur are very nice. I got the T55A about a year ago and have not really played it more than a handful of times. I always felt that it got a certain amount of focus that playing a normal T54 does not. I am over half way through the 260 missions. I gained the T55A before the new token system. I did not play spgs and so I gained it by doing the four number 15 missions with honours. I guess to gain the 260 I may be forced to do the stug and HTC missions for spg, but I do not know if I want the 260 that badly.

SPG missions are relatively easy I have passed 45 of them with honer and I am approaching toward  obj260, 

some players dislike SPGs well, it does not need much skill to master and play,they are not much fun but not so bad actually, and win8 formula is not much SPG friendly

but I guess obj260 is a valuable tank and I really want it in my garage.

I love to play T28HTC every now and then I do when you need high block damage compared to your tank hit-point  for some missions and marathons it is the best choice

STUG IV is a typical tier 5 destroyer and acceptable performance but T55A, I really think needs a buff to be worth  to play with.

and the crew is not compatible with my leopard,in one commander is the radio operator in the other the loader.

After this patch T54 was buffed so yes , T55a is kinda inferior to t54 so you must be masochist to play with it. T54 till they will buff it , if not don`t touch it , it could be frustrating to play with it.

At this moment don`t worth doing personal mission for t55a and obj , is7 is better too after buff , so maybe worth the grind for credits and girls and echip but for tanks a big NO.
