So you can make a post to sell stuff, but nothing about servers being down during the last few hours of a marathon event........

"That's one tough Soviet right there".

That's one tough Soviet in the 2 battles out of 50 you're top tier. In the other 48 it's just a squishy medium with poor pen.

I had this, got rid of it, no gun depression, no good for hilly maps, decent mobility though.

If they sold the Kirovets 1 or the E 25, they might be able to get the new servers an awful lot quicker, not to mention the unmentionable tank thats sold everywhere else:trollface:

Don't buy it, it is trash, armor is useless since you will be almost always at the bottom.

**** Do you think you can tame it?

 

Tier 10's have no problem at all taming the T-54 first Proto ~ aim shoot 1 to 3 times its dead!

​Tier 9's have little or no problem taming the T-54 first Proto ~ aim shoot 4 times its dead!

 

​shame really T-54 first Proto is a nice good Tier 8 tank ~ if only it had a 105mm gun with high dpm for fighting T10's

I think, after the recent mobility buff, this tank is pretty OK. 

Requires some tactical placement most of the times, since you're going to be bottom tier a lot (at least, that's what I'm noticing)

 

Should have a buff in standard AP penetration on my part.

Picked it up via the gold discount...

 

T8 Meds feel like a much of a muchness.

 

FV4202, T34-3, T-54 Mod 1, and Type 59 all of which I have play very similar to one another. Games where I do well, I'd probably have done well in all of them. And bad games likewise. 

 

Still I like the acceleration the Mod 1 has, the low top speed doesn't seem to matter all that much. 

 

I like it but obviously the MM will always be the sticking point.

T-54 FP was one of my first Tier 8 premium tanks .. Well I am glad the tank got some love and buffs, it can use more of them.. because  noone takes it seriously for a threat like .. ever ..

There was a time when I considered a mistake spending my money on it but we all need credits, so.. 
[edited] ..  now the mobility of a heavy tank was corected so you can atleast get to position without losing all your hit points..

Still the T-54 FP have some arnor on paper, but the premium shell spamming is slowly making normal shells dissapear from the game and the HE samurai/ninjas Japan tanks are here to prevent camping just like arty but without the stun effect.. so I don't rely on the turret anymore (maybe get hull down infront of a tier 6 and bounce a few "gold shells" but that's a rare match making )

 

yeah.. I have it.. so I play with it .. that's all..

I think it is overpowered, as the armor will bounce more shots than expected and its dispersion is the same as on the Mutz, STA-2 tanks and better than on the T26E4 SuperPershing or the M46 Patton Korea.

Might be OP for a T8 Med but that's not even competitive with the normal MM... 

 

Armour gets the odd bounce, 190 pen is ok and it's quite fast with nice soft gun stats.

 

Still get farmed by T10s :B

Ohhh.Another topic about premium bullsht.

Many pre tanks are overpowered and they dominated many matches with even average player's hand.  it is not acceptable situation for game balance. i have 5k matches and i usually hard against pre tanks with above average tankers. Strv s1, Somua sm, Scorpion g, e25, elc even 90, amx 13 57f, lorr 40t, t26e4, defender, p.victoria, pre chinese destoryer, type 64, type 62 all of them OP in same class versus.

Please look random a player accounts. same player's statistic who owner both udes 03 and strv s1 in garage. S1 and Udes same class , same nation, same tier and Both destoryer.  BUT

Premium Strv S1>Udes 03
Pre Scorpion G>Jpanther2 or Ferdi
Pre Amx 13 57f> Amx 13 75
Pre Löwe>Tiger2
Pre Defender>is3
...  
(This is Problem1  for game)



Summary if Wot must change:
-this pre tanks
-russian tank fanatism
-match marking system



Many teen can play wot in future.

But many friends uninstalled this game at two months later(%90) Because starter tanker must play with 5-10 k match exprienced tanker in 4-5 tier. Also he play with  2 tiers up his opponent. Some of op pre tanks even fck game seriousness in low tier. Matilda, Lefh18b2 arty and etc.

Sometimes i read on wot forums, some idiot tankers say "None is Op" But these tankers generally buy pre tanks and use  apcr or heat. So they do not want to accept this reality. These idiot's argument is little. they give example t34, tog2 etc. BUT Exceptions dont break realities. Already good OP tanks are being purchased and played.

Problem2(Russian Tank Fanatism):
Otherhand russian med and heavies more effective than german meds or heavies in many times.

For example Russian med T54 and Obj430 more effective than german meds E50
Russian heavy Kv2 or T150 more effective german vk3601h
Russian is1 more effective tiger 1
Russian is3 more effective tiger 2
Russian heavy T10 and obj704 more effective mauschen, vk and many times e75

Especially 7 tier or higher russian meds have strong turret, good caliber gun, good pen, good dmg, good mobility and good aim and reload time. But german heavies are terrible. Vk36.01 H, Tiger 1, Tiger P, Tiger 2, Vk45.02.  

(Note: i have tank aces with tiger series and i have 6 barrel lines.)

For example, if you are owner of tiger p, you generally must go heavy place in map.
Your same tier Opponents are:
is(390 alpha dmg)
o-ni(700 he gun)
hulldowner T-29(320 alpha dmg).

if you succes to give true angle with your tiger p, enemies understand your skill and shot you with acpr and they have penetrate you easilly, they have high alpha dmg gun and they finish your game. Sometimes 6tier kv2 shot you 400-700 dmg one shot and you are slow, didnt run. sometimes you even hard in 7 tier matches with tiger p.

Already all 7 tier and higher russian med use apcr or heat and they penetrate your flat armor easily. Arties shot you. Cuz you have big surface area, low gun rotate speed, low mobility. you spotted easily and cant run.

Advice1: i give a advice. if you continue play this game, you play with russian meds.

İf you want to play heavies and you want rush, dont change german, you should change russian heavy or japanese heavies. Many map is small and enemy team is closely.

Advice2:  if you want penetrate enemy tanks easily and dont want use gold ammo, you should play destoryer. ( German, Russian or Swedish). Otherhand you will have high damage)
