Missed a whole lot of chances to get a T-54/T-55 chassis proper tank.

 

The thing is... it's Chinese. So he has bad module health and it's Tier X really doesn't look good after the 430U.

 

The Pros is Infernal likes it but that's about it. It's not like the armour is stellar though research it through the WZ-132 is possible and also speeds up the 5A grind.

 

I've tried it in the CT server. #WorksAsIntended.

 

I know I asked this before but... Ideas, people? Looking at you also, Infernal. But, a complete review if possible...

Are you trying to avoid Russian tanks? :)

It's ok but extremely expensive for what it is. I do enjoy mine but I got it awhile back on discount when it was unloved.

 

£34 for a T8 Medium?

 

I paid less for the T-44 100 when it was on sale (£27) and it's a better vehicle in every way.

 

Still tho isn't the T-34-3 getting a gun depression buff soon?

It's Chinese... but based off of RASJA DA DA tanks. So it benefits from "Small Bias Reserve (II)". But not "Large Советский Союз резерв ДА ДА ВОДКА И ПИВО ДА ДА!!! (XX)" Can't compete with that. :(

You have a T44-100 which is an excellent trainer for russian mediums, why just don't go this way?

 

Anyway, here is the latest form for the upcoming buffs to this china junk! :)

Do you mean the T-34-2, the regular Chinese medium tank which leads to the WZ-120? Or the T-34-3, tier 8 premium Chinese medium with preferential match-making? Because the answers you've got so far are regarding the latter and your question appears to refer to the former (research it through the WZ-132 ... the T-34-3 doesn't see tier X).

 

In short, I got the WZ-120 through the WZ-132 but that was before the lights were extended to tier X and the xp required was the same. I have a T-34-3 and quite like it, though it's very much a tank you buy because you really like the model or want a Chinese premium medium, not because it's a particularly strong tank.

I have it and it is okay but its pen is so terrible sometimes you are rendered utter useless so it kinda kills the mood. I probably play it like twice a day, and the pen buff is only +7 which is an insult to our intelligence. +7 really wont do much

Checklist for buying premium tanks in WoT.

 

1. Is it tier 8? Then don´t.

 

End of checklist.

I was thinking about buying it as well. I need a pref MM tank for platooning. But the price tag on this one is absurd. Furthermore it's a blind bargain. Noone knows how the pref MM changes will look at the end of the day. So 40 Euro for a pixel tank? No. Just no. I rather go on steam and buy an AA(A) game instead.

 

WG's greed hit new levels. Sadly bugfixing didn't hit new levels. Once again the list of known bugs was way longer than the list of fixed bugs in the recent patchnotes. Critical bugs remain for several patches now. We all know why. Bugfixing doesn't create immediate income - so it's not a priority for WG. Tells you all you need to know

I doubt the price can come down other than on discount considering that many players bought it long ago at full price. For their patience those players have not only had it buffed recently but it will be buffed again in the PMM review. So no, WG aren't going to now sell a much better tank cheaper than it originally was.

As an owner of both the Type 59 and T-34-3, I'd say you're better off waiting for the Type to be sold again

I'm sure it was far cheaper prior to tech tree removal as I wouldn't have paid HT prices for a mediocre Med.

It basically had a HT price tag before the removal too. Doubt that's gonna change.

Apparently so terrible that it got a solid buff last year and is scheduled for another solid makeover.

 

Would've been a nice pat on the back for veterans if they didn't put it into last year's crates. Can't wait to see what's under the tree this year - though I don't expect to be surprised in the slightest.

I never could work out all those crate things and those silly tree decorations, wtf was that all about?

 

These crates are they the 'loot-box's' and if you buy the do you know what you are getting?

The decorations gave you a bonus in-game. The better your decoration level, the higher the bonus, up to something like +47% on xp and credits earned from each battle played over the Christmas period. It's possible to grind them out but they also came in the premium crates bought from the shop.

Those crates are the ones you buy. WG worked around the possible loot-box furore by guaranteeing that you'd get at least the same value in gold if you bought a crate with some decorations or whatever on top. Can't be a gamble if you're getting more than you would by simply making the same purchase from the premium shop.

 

Then they stuck Type 59s in there and everyone who bought early boxes seemed to get one, which appeared to drive a lot of other players into buying more boxes than they'd intended in the hope of getting a Type.

 

In short, two types of crate - basic ones that you earn from battle and give you basic decorations and maybe some consumables and premium ones that you buy which give you palpitations if you really must have a Type 59.

I enjoy playing mine a lot because it's fun to blap fools for 390+.

However, it is not a good tank by any means and even the upcoming slated buffs won't be enough.

+ Good hull armour,

+ Fantastic turret armour,

+ 390 alpha,

> Mobility is fairly underwelming for a med, but still mobile nonetheless,

> 1,300hp is pretty low for a tier 8 med,
> Gun depression, while fine, is kinda made worse but the mid-mounted turret,

> For 390 alpha, the soft stats are reasonably decent, but still below average as a whole,

- [ammo rack is hit]

- 0.46 base dispersion makes it a complete RNG cannon for the most part,

- 175 pen.

 

I wouldn't say its worth the £34 price tag atm. Now, the upcoming buffs do look very nice and promising, but I'm worried that the base dispersion still cucks it. 175 pen is workable on a tank that is somewhat mobile like the T-34-3, but not when you still have pitiful base dispersion. If I were WG, I'd keep the soft stats as they are, but buff the dispersion to 0.4-0.38 levels along with probably not giving it the gun depression buff as well. I do very much enjoy the tank when the gun behaves, but most of the time it feels like an utter potato launcher.
