Its crap. Developers did not understood that if you have tank with such crapmobility and no turet you have to give it reliable armour or good gun. T28 does not have either, armor is unrealiabl at best on long range and bad at close range (still dont understand why T28 prot cupola is so much better than T28 cupolas) Gun will bounce or outright miss so many shots that have no bussines missing that the paper good dpm goes to trash. 

Thank [edited]god there is kanonenjagdpanzer so this pile of poo is not the worst tier 8 TD.

 

So why it has so high winratio? because it does not allow for any skill or finesse. Only thing it does semi good is trading its HP face on with enemy. Which seems to be tactic most suited for average player

Hi,

A bit short for a review ;)

Was tempted by it but I have difficulties with slow tanks. Still it is good looking after its rework.

Question : why play it 5k games if it is so frustrating ?

It took you 5000 games to figure that out? Why did you stick with it if it's that terrible? Considering the only good thing you did say about it was semi good.  Most just tested it after each buff and then left it instantly.  Nor is it a tank I fear, even in my tier 6 tanks

Because T28 has far better frontal and side armour than T28proto. 254mm vs 201mm front, 101mm vs 50mm side. Plus the proto has a 152mm flat MG port on the hull. Making cupolas a weackspot too isn't really needed.

It's actually pretty good after the HD update. The armor holds up much better now and it has the hitpoint pool if it doesn't while smacking people with 3100+ dpm.

Would that be pre-buff and therefore completely out of date?

Why the hell would you play 5000 battles with it, then?

It is so bad you play 20-25x the amount of games you need to get the T95 without rage quiting or selling the T28.

You are either not completely honest with us or a sado-masochist. :sceptic:

Best bouncer on tier 8 according to vbaddict bouncing nearly 50% of all shots fired at it.

 

3rd best WR of all tier 8s on vbaddict as well, higher than the Defender. 

 

And over performing for most players on the WR curves since the buff. 

 

Not sure how it can be described as 'bad', not fun to play maybe but it's statistically OP since the buff and looks very much like it's tier 9 brother, i.e. too much armour and firepower for the tier with the poor map meta meaning the poor mobility doesn't matter that much.

Not to sound like a broken record, but: Why have you played 5000 battles in it?

Plus I played it before the reword and even then it was amazing.

It's still one of the most unique looking tanks in the game. I like it.

Insanity comes before 5000 games in a T95 or it would have pre-speed buff when I played it.

The T28 prototype would suit my playstyle better, it adds some kind of versatility.

It wishes it had 254mm lfp, which it where everyone pens it.

 

The T28prot can angle properly due it having a turret and -10°'s gun depression.

 

The T28 is easily the worst tier 8 td that I have played.
