My girlfriend bought me a coupon for 15000 gold, and I want to use it to buy either Lowe or T34. But what to buy? 

 

The big plus for the Lowe is that I have great German crews to put on it (my Maus crew is at 5th skill), and I don't have any US crews. 

 

What do you recommend?

Lowe, especially if you have good crew for it.

Lowe in my Opinion....     I like Both, but my Lowe holds up Better against Tier 10, even the Latest Additions.....     And if you should Double Tap the 2 Key, that 294 Pen and German Accuracy goes a Long Way.....      Since you have the Crews already, sounds like a Perfect Fit as well.....

 

I still have the Rental in my Garage, but haven't Bought the T34 yet mainly due to Price....    But I did put quite a Few Games onto it getting the Cheesey Rental Crew from 50% to I think 88% or so....     It was a Very Good Tank, but I still prefer the Lowe in the end....

Definitely the Lowe, although the t 34 can be a fun tank on times especially in a platoon.

Löwe definitely.

If you're not in a hurry you can wait  a month or tree until it's 15/30% off to save some of them golds.

Oh, I will wait for the discount for sure, but I do market research now ;) . I have the Scorpion G so I have a T8 premium for credit grind. 

 

But yeah, seems the Lowe is perfect for me. I also lowe the look of it. Beautiful.

What those guys said.

 

The only reason to get the T34 would be if you wanted  to train US crews, and even then there are better options.

This could be a poison chalice. whatever your decision.

 

Firstly I would agree with the other posts re Lowe . T34 is currently past its "sell buy" date.

 

More importantly has your GF given you a test? - maybe along the lines of :

 

Option 1  - Get the better tank... play it more... more time online... less time for GF ... GF starts argument along the lines of ' you're playing tonks me than seeing me '...

 

Option 2 - Get the worserer tank - play it less... less time online.... more time for GF... GF happier.

 

Option 3 - Get the  better tank .. play it more ... more time online... less time for GF.. GF plan all along and starts seeing some one else while you online.

 

Option 4 - Get the worserer tank ... play it less... less time online... catch GF with best mate - who thought you would have got better tank..... ( see option 1)

 

 

Food for thought.. with a bit of spice added

 

Have fun

How about..

 

Get the better tank, earn more credits, play less.

Hahaha, my girlfriend is also a player in WOT and we platoon together all the time. When online, we are spending time together (her laptop sits on the table next to my computer anyway). 

 

PS: And if I catch her and my best mate, I will go Object 268 version 4 on their asses! :D

Do you like being bottom tier slow tank 95% of your games?

Lowe works better than most t8 prems bottom tier because it's still decent hull down vs t10s and good vs t9s + it has high pen both standard and prem rounds. Add good view range to that and you are never useless.

Tbh.. T34 is slow and useless even as top tier.

 

At least the Lowe has a gun that works in a support role, and that can actually hit what he aims at. A mantle that can bounce the odd high tier guns too, and side armor that works. So out of the two... def the Lowe. It's one of the few tier 8's I really don't mind what MM I get. Well after his last round of buffs. As I would kinda have agreed with you with the old Lowe engine.

I own both the Lowe and T34. If I were to recommend only one;

 

LOWE.
