A free T6 Tank is much appreciated.

 

Few games and my over riding though is.

 

To me Its very much an Mt25 and steers like a drunk donkey :)  When I'm driving it.

PS

I have 3 skill T54 lwt crew in it with 6 Sense and camo. Recon and Awareness

 

Equipment is vents, Optics and Binocs.  To see if I can push view range close to 445m and see how It plays as a scout.

If you are actively grinding the Soviet light tanks just put what ever crew is in the tank you are trying to research in to the T50-2.  You will  accelerate the crew training so your top Soviet light will perform better for you as the crew will be that little bit better.

 

Or you could start with the 100% crew that came in it and train those up prior to going into a tank you already have researched.

I find it pretty fun tank. zoom zoom pew pew kind of fun. Haven't been in tier 8 game so that probably skews the impression.

It's a reward tank not a premium tank. No accelerated crew training or credits.

really ??

My mistake. :(

 

I thought reward tanks still gave accelerated crew train but not extra credits.

 

Do you have a link to this please?

 

TacP

 

Ps 

Just played a Game.

No credits bonus

 

But you do get bonus for premium vehicle.  It does give accelerated crew training.

Look at the T34 and you will notice that it has the ZIS 4 gun with much better ROF, much better DPM, better hull armour and better dispersion and it's a tier 5. The T50 2 desperately needs a ROF buff to make it competitive.

Yes I think they have the crew XP bonus but not the credit boost.

I think this tank is way to OP in combination with the experience that the players that received the tank have. For me it greatly ruins my fun in playing this game. It is way to fast, way to well armoured and it is the summum of Soviet bias in terms of the gun.

 

I'm not sure what WG was thinking putting this in T6. I just started playing multiple tanks in that tier but now i seriously consider selling those and drop back to my more comfortable T5's. Or maybe its time to take a more serious look at War Thunder.


Don't get me wrong, love the game, love the fact that long term players are rewarded, not whining about 3-5-7 or arty but this piece of Stalins wrath is a litlle to much over the top for me.

I'm not sure what you find OP about it? Nothing about it really stands out except the fact that old players got it. You could watch what are they doing and how they play if you want to pick a thing or two or wait for a few days until people get bored of it. I know I did after ~10 games?

It is supposed to be a T6 light tank. Light tanks trade armour for speed. Light tanks tend to have somewhat less powerfull guns compared to equal tier meds. I met a T-50-2 yesterday that came flying by at 70 kmh over hilly terrain, penetrating me 4 times in a row. He didn't slow down at all, just fired on the move. Oke, i was driving a rather soft Pz. IV H but nevertheless, that is way to accurate. Had an encounter in my T6 VK P, T-50-2 was bouncing my 8,8 cm shells from close up and full frontal. His one shot (!) killed my gunner and ammoracked me. Had an encounter in my VK 30 D, with the L70...no pens at all while (again) being shot to pieces in no time at all. 

 

Apart from that, given the speed of this thing there is no use trying to drive a light yourself, they will do all the spotting. Other way around, given the speed of this thing you barely can reach cover before the swarm 'your side of the map'.

 

For me the main problem is that when you are new at T6 you're meeting all kind of OP T8 premiums that you have to deal with. As such that is not a huge problem since there are always some tanks you cant really hurt. But now even the low tier part of the teams is OP as hell. And the standard escape to drop back to T5 (no T8) doesn't help because then the T-50-2 becomes even more OP.

 

So, i find this to be no fun at all. I know, orange/red player, no skills, git gud and stuff but hey....its my game too...

Just because you don't find it fun doesn't mean it is OP.

I think it loads of fun, as long as you are not on the receiving side of the gun...

It's great fun to play, and not OP. Besides, there are better tier 6 light tanks, like the Type 64. It's mobility and DPM aren't anything amazing, but in the hands of experienced players of course it's going to be deadly.
