I just got my hands on the T-34-2 Chinese tank after enjoying the T-34-1 for a time.

 

i've upgraded the gun to the 100 mm 44-100JT (which means i had to upgrade the turret also) and i'm finding it possibly the worst tank i've ever played (i know i'm not the best player in the world though).

The turret isn't too bad (quite bouncy), but the gun....It can pen hardly anything at its own tier, and even struggles at lower tiers - i'm hoping that when i get the 100 mm 59-100T it will be much better.

 

I'm playing like a TD currently - hiding in bushes and sniping, but the gun is slow and inaccurate and i get spotted quite often - even through a solid bush.

Anyone finding the same as me or are you playing differently and getting on well with it?

 

thanks in advance.

It is crap, but I still like it. But yes! It could use some buffs!

it just needs better gun handling and a bit more pen so it would be a solid tank.
13:52 Added after 2 minutes

and i noticed that the T-34-2 has that superior technique like some other Chinese tanks has.

mount a machine gun to the same turret so you can mount bigger gun.  :facepalm:

When I played it back in late 2014 till early 2015 is was crap and such a letdown after the T-34-1 which back then was a great tank, then accuracy changes hit and the T-34-1 got kinda meh and the T-34-2 got even worse, these days the T-34-2 is simply nothing more than an expensive free XP sink and sadly that's been the case for several years now.

wait till you get to tier 9 WZ-120 and you have to grind 3 more expensive XP guns from which the first one is  another useless 100 mm gun that is tier 7 level for 45k xp.

OR you can grind 113 first and get the top gun for the 120 that way and save a lot of XP

Nope, even if you have the top gun from 113 (like I have) you are not allowed to mount it till you get ofc tracks, the turret and like I said another 100mm gun which has 189 mm pen at tier 9 ! lol ! You need 90k xp just to be allowed to mount that top gun that you already have xD

you need to do it in this order:   113 -> tracks -> turret -> mount the top gun -> whatever rocks your boat.

Nope, as I told you I already grinded the heavy line and have experienced the 2 top guns (from 110 and 113) but I first need to get one more 100mm gun which is unique to WZ-120, you cannot get it from any other tank and the gun itself is useless.

There was a time when T 34-1 was one of the best tier VII mediums, don't know how it is now, but the T 34-2 was, and still is pretty bad.

Chinese med line in general is in need of buffs, but I very highly doubt that WG even realises that that line exists, and its not like WG cares for game balance. Like VTU for instance, another t8 med that is almost tier 6 worthy (well, Skoda T40 :harold:), introduced in 2015 iirc and yet not a single buff despite it being one of the worst t8s. Its honestly pathetic how little attention is given to the tanks that need them.

I played it first five years ago or so. Back then it was really bad already. Easily among the worst tier 8 vehicles. After years and years of power creep there is not much playability left. This thing faces vehicles like 430U and is at the same tier as the Defender and Progetto, how is that even a thing lol. It is so impopular, nobody usually even cares about it.

Actually, when you put it like that, yes, it is pretty damn weak. Had not thought about it in that light.

Goddamnit guys. Don't rush wg like that! They need to collect more statistics over time, like obj 279e.
It has been only about 4 years since it's release and it being trash.

Good point, the same can be done with the T-34-3 (with countless buffs) vs T-34-2 (122). Besides the difference in (preferential) matchmaking and profitability ofcourse.

I grinded it with the 122mm and liked it, but I should point out that 1) this was years ago and 2) I have an... unorthodox taste in tanks, to say the least.
