No it isn't, it constantly sees tier X.

So? It has the mobility, the terrain resistance to make that work. Type 59 just feels sluggish AF.

True, it needs to get back some of its old mobility.

 

By the way t 44 100 is ugly, only tank I do not want to get.

Type is better, not only the limited MM but the tier 10 turret armour as well.

Have you seen how many premium tanks WG have put in the shop alongside the new French auto loader heavy. There are suddenly a lot of old favourites making come backs.

No because my work PC doesn't allow certain embedded content (can't see pics in here etc because imgur banned). I'm guessing it's something to do with flash or similar but not that bothered

I'd rather see a certain old pet peeve make a come back. Plus the Type 59, of course.

Most of them are just ones that are always there but bundled with premium time.

Thought about getting it too but i thought it is too expensive. It is about 190 lei. I would had probably got it if it was for like 120-140 lei. Anyway I lucked out on the boxes for this winter holiday event and have the real 59 so i guess i got enough overpriced stuff from WG's shop...

In all fairness though it's the best normal matchmaking medium at tier 8. I rate it better than the Lorraine though I can see someone else disagreeing with this part. Furthermore it actually offers you viable high tier medium playing style in form of a premium and if you enjoy such gameplay this tank is your best bet. Those people who think that T-54 Mod 1 is anywhere near as good are just delusional budget players and don't understand that mobility and gun handling are much more relevant for a tier 8 medium that is bottom tier most of the time over putting your eggs on the "I'm top tier every 10 games !" basket when the armor actually matters. If you're bottom tier most of the time(which is reality) you might as well play a tank that performs decently as one.

 

Anyone who's read my posts can confirm that I am a passionate hater of tier 8 mediums and even I can confirm this tank is worth its price. It's that good. On the other hand I personally see price as a fairly low priority matter. It's always nice when the tank you want costs 25€ and there are a few cheap gems but at the same time I rather pay 45€ for a strong&fun tank than buy an STA-2 for 28€ and pretend that it's a good tank with a good gun. I also much rather pay 45€ for T-44-100 than invest 30€ on something like T-54 Mod 1 that is quite alright now but still quite far behind in quality. I am of the opinion that the difference between 25-30€ and 45€ isn't that big in practice - if I am going to shell in a substantial amount of money on a virtual tank, I rather pay that 15€ more if it buys me more quality or fun.

 

T-44-100 is a powerful tank with fantastic gun handling and good overall attributes. Whether it's worth 45€ for you or not is a different matter. I got mine from the marathon but if I didn't receive mine that way and got the chance to play it for a few games before deciding whether to buy it or not, I'd ship in the 45€ immediately.

 

It's not a Defender but for a competent medium player it's quite close. That is true in randoms anyway, it doesn't have the retardproof armor to ruin other game modes.

I compared the 44-100 against the Hype 59.

As I wrote on a previous topic, I was thinking about getting the T-34-3 but I suspected WG was about to make some sort of Xmas Calendar... And my waiting panned out.

 

Feels very fast. Almost as good as a LT. Problem is only the ammo rack. 128/130mm shells can and will bust the deposits for full dmg.
