Mine hasn't been out the garage in several years. I'm surprised by how many you still see given it was so bloody awful.

T34 still hasn't been changed.

 

Indirect nerf from releases of newer tanks maybe, but what do you expect? No more new tanks ever?

Please link patch notes. Because my vague memory is the USA T34 heavy has had no buffs in a while. Although I accept my memory can have errors but,

 

9.20.1 is the CN T34-3 buff, and some of the other tier VIII premiums but the USA T34 heavy tank is not amongst them.

9.17.1 is the buff of the USA T28 and T95 tds and nerf of the T110E5

9.2 buffs to M46

 

EDIT I completely forgot and missed 9.17. Thanks. I am going to go and play my T34 and see how it works.

 

Second EDIT; after a two hour session, the Lowe is soo much better than the T34 it's not even funny.

Maybe it only went as far as supertest, anyway still no nerfs.  And it's still got that gun which belongs on tier IX, which was the whole reason the rest of it is so bad.

 

Edit.

Here you go.

It has always been garbage, not sure what you are surprised about. What's terribly funny and tragic at the same time is that the ONLY thing the T34 really needs to be actually competetive is a big buff on it's aim time from 3.2 seconds, to abot 2.2 seconds. RoF can stay the same, same DPM, but the tank would actually be usable.

slight buff in mobility, e.g. ground resistance would also be helpful

You make it sound like it was great the past few patches even. It's been bad for ages, even with the buffs it got. It was good ages ago, then a new meta came, and a new one, and a new one. It's just got worse with each one. Nothing more, nothing less.

That describes my experiences with it as well. If it was bad before, it's worse now. The hull is made of cardboard and cheese, the maps are fairly flat, the gun is slow and very unwieldy and unreliable IMO, and add to that the fact that it now more often than not faces tier 9 and even X tanks that can easily pen the turret which used to be one of it's main assets.

That's practically a whole lotta nothing compared to what the tank actually needs in terms of a buff.

Whether you or anyone else considers these meaningful buffs is largely irrelevant though isn't it? OP seems to be under the impression it was nerfed, which as far as anyone knows did not happen. Furthermore, it's a response to someone asking for those very patch notes.

I took mine out after reading this thread yesterday, got a tier 9 battle (5/10) and while it wasn't exceptional, it wasn't horrible either. Second class result with 2.3k damage, 1 kill and 1.2k blocked, 63k credits profit and some training for my crew that are still building toward their first skill. Yes, it's a bit limited against +2 tier heavies but what tier 8 tanks aren't?

 

Or it didn't happen.

No it's not, quite the contrary. Tank has been heavily powercrept and those so-called buffs are nowhere near enough to compensate for it, which makes the tank arguably worse than before. This may be a reason for the OP thinking the tank has been nerfed, in spite of the fact that it hasn't had it's parameters directly changed for the worse. Indirect nerf is still a nerf.
