Do you think the T34 is as it should be?

He has 2 loaders but it nevertheless takes longer to load a shell than an IS3, and I think the IS3 created more damage, and the T34 came to replace T30 which has the best weapon too, and the T34 is a bit slow. In short, should not it be a little better than it is?

T34 is an old bad tank. It only has penetration going for it and maybe the alpha which is just 10 dmg more than the avarage 390. Other than that the tanks is a pos. It is big and slow with no armor. The turret even if is good frontally, almost every gun can overmatch its roof. It also has one of the worst gun handling and DPM ever.

I bought the tenk thinking it might be fun. And I suck so bad in it it hurts my soul. I don’t think it is the worst thing ever, but I just cannot make it work. And I think I got shot thru the mantlet, too. Must have been gold, yet does not make much difference. Just showed me it is not the tonk for me.

T34 has the same gun now as it did when it was a tier 9 HT... with the same pen iirc.

 

But alpha and pen is not the issue with that tank. It's still great. But the DPM and the gun handling vs other guns that came after it with is a bit off. And it doesn't trade to well vs anything. It's a great support HT. But once it's alone it starts to struggle. It's a worse multitasker vs the Jap HT's tbh.

Gun handling buff or slight mobility buff would make the tank borderline playable. The mark requirements are a joke for a reason.

Only the 115mm+ guns can overmatch a part of it's roof. Spamming HE on that roof however...

It's an old hull-down tank. Not a great tank no and it's entire hull is a xp pinata. The Lowe atleast can bounce if enemy rolls low on pen. Used to be an awesome tank a long time ago. Right now there are better heavies and even mediums with better turrets and guns than this thing.

If it is anything like a stock T30 then it is pure trash.

Funny you mention that tank, I unequipped it today to re-equip my IS-6 which performed remarkably well with its 180ish pen.

 

The problem is that WG never could come up with an algorithm to balance tanks. Not even sure whether they could. Or want to.

Don't even get me started on the CDC...

This is the price you pay for taking a tier 9 tank, moving it to tier 8 and keeping it's gun.  It's called balance.

 

Though it is based on a time when premiums were supposed to be slightly worse.

Small correction: it kept penetration and damage, everything else was nerfed to crap. Even at the time of its introduction it was barely worth to sacrifice so much (mobility, armour, DPM, aiming time) for that penetration and alpha. While T34's penetration is still unrivalled, it kinda lost its advantage since premium shell usage became very common. And of course now we have heavies with 440 alpha which have better gun handling, aiming time and higher DPM - while having either better armour than T34, mobility or both...

It's only natural to have T34 buffed in some area - preferably mobility or gun handling.

Well, you kind of need to know what it can do and what it cannot. Evaluate the matchups forehand and try to make the best of it. It's powercreeped to bits, but that doesn't mean you can't make it work most of the time. 

 

Edit: The plus sides of this used to be that it's ok even in tier x matchups because of the nice standard (and premium) pen of the gun. So at least for me, it was my best premium for credit farms.

playing the T34 is like when you are high.. everything you try to do feels sooo slow.. but the world arpund you moves so fast.. even more now with the WV. So yeah.. getting dust in garage.. 

Give it t29 mobility and gun handling.. and slightly better dpm.. and you have a winner

First of all, thanks for the comments and opinions, in fact all that was said is true, it's an old tank, but IS3 is too, and yet it has undergone changes to remain as an elite tank among the remaining, but I do not speak especially on IS3 because it's a soviet tank, but I have both and I know their performance.

 

But I can say that the promotion that wargaming does to the tank with the video does not exactly match what you see after you buy it, as I already said, I like the T34 I play better with him now and I even have the emblem ace, but I believe that this tank already deserves an upgrade, it is not even the cheapest premium tank between the heavys tier VIII of the game.

 

Here is the call to wargaming that if we become aware of this topic think in the future to change something in the american heavy tank T34

One of the few good American premiums so that is why it's cash shop only.

 

Only the T26E4 SuperPershing is also playable but clearly inferior to the Patriot as it has heavy level mobility and requires gold spam to be effective.

It would be fine if you weren't in T10 battles all the time.

The T26E4 SuperPershing is very good, my first buy and I enjoy him a lot, its slow but have a very good armor and a good gun! my only buy that I trade was the Heavy Tank nº VI, all time play with VIII tanks and cant enjoy him, but I trade him for SU-122-44 and I like him!
