T-44.  

 

Had this tank back in the day.  Played a few games and skipped through it.  Went back for the TOTT. 

 

Needed 170k (didn't have the 122mm) unlocked.  And hammered it since the 1st  of March.  And I can honestly say ive enjoyed the entire grind. 

 

Have some free XP and get past the 85mm guns. Get the LB-1.  

 

Type 4-5s are a pain in the sphincter. Even pressing the 2 key.  The argument for flanking is bone and I can only imagine is said by Type 4-5 drivers.  

 

But on the whole.  The grind  even over a weekend was great.  Had no really issues with MM.  Picked my targets.  Broke my 52.3 WR bogie ceiling. 

 

Anyway.  Got the 430.  Love it.  Can see myself liking the 430U. Got 24 days the hammer the 430 now.  Many thanks to all of Bulldogs that put up with me playing one tank all weekend.

I plan to grind this tank, but was busy grinding premium tanks this weekend for the exp bonus and rewards. Will start tomorrow. 

I remember I really liked the T-44 grind after it wasnt stock anymore. Never had the 122mm, i think it's a new gun for this tank? Or has it always been there?

 

Anyway will be busy grinding this one and the IS-M :)

​Pretty sure the gun was apart of the original grind as I remember a thread on is it viable on the T-44, I think the LB1 might be new.

 

I didn't realise that there was a premium bonus this weekend as was tunnelled on the T-44 basically was having a blast in it. Been years since I actually enjoyed playing rather than it being a chore and just a habit of grinding or earning credits, I know its nearly 30k games late but I will continue playing just one tank for a prolonged period from now on... Flitting between tanks and classes are causing me grief.

I dint mind grinding the IS line. Playing the IS with the 100mm was also very refreshing, since nobody expects you to play with it.

I thought that was the only way to play it, the 122mm just looks meh compared to it.

Thanks for the heads up.  I really liked the T-44 first time around a couple of years ago.  I didn't realise it was on sale, so this prompted a hasty sale of some consumables and a re-purchase....

I hate the tank with a passion as I’m so rubbish at it but I also love it as the link between the T-34 and the MBT of the T-54.

The T-44 is basically the same as the T-44-100 now, and I LOVE the living crap outta the T-44-100, I bully tier 10 tanks with it sometimes! :D

 

I know... it's OP af... I like to call it a mini-obj140 because of the identical playstyle.

T-44-100 isn't going to help me get the 430U
