Let me say this first, i wish i had bought the FV yesterday. only if i knew that leak is going to be accurate... .

 

anyway that ship has sailed and now with the remaining  offers there's only 3 tanks that i'm interested in

and its going to be t34, is6 and foch.

 

what i like to know is your thoughts on these tanks and to see which one of them is good for purchase compare to others.

but before that let me ask you u guys if u think wg would put them on sale for credit or if it's to be alpine tiger all over again?

 

and if its going to be for credits what do u recommend i get? only got 24 mil after selling lots of stuff from my garage.

 

after doing a comparison  on tanks.gg  im not so sure if i want to get the t34 now because its gun handling is so bad i don't think i'm going like it if i get it. in fact it's gun handling is even worse than the tier7, t29.

 

and then there is6  which has way better gun handling but not so good armor and gun pen... .

 

and the last one is Foch which has a lot of great things going on for it, like that big alpha auto-loader (helps with lots of dmg mission i think), good armor and speed but its not a perm tank and it may even get nerf someday.

 

so what do you guys recommend?

Now, I have the regular T34 and by no means I would say it's a good tank. 

 

It makes a crapton of credits if you play even remotely OK games with it, but it's a horrible, powercrept lumbering heap of turd that has a nice gun with good standard pen and a sturdy turret. But for some reason it makes a lot better credits for lesser performance than any of my other premiums. 

 

I wouldn't buy the IS-6 either, unless it's very cheap. (Who am I kidding, ofc I will buy it if it's for credits lol)

Yeah, it's very bad and the turret is slow af. :) I still sometimes play it. For some reason I have a thing for tanks that set you as the underdog.

Definitely the IS-6, the most successful tank for unknown reasons!

I own all three.

T34 has suffered badly from power creep. Huge alpha and pen used to be it's USB, but both of those not so special anymore, and it has long reload.

IS6 used to be a fantastic bully when it regularly saw lots of tier VI and VII. Now it is more often in all tier VIII matches it is far less useful.

Foch - although I have it, I hated the french TD line and none of them were very good, nor is the discontinued Foch tier X td.

The pen (248mm?) on standard ammo is still best on tier8 heavies, at least I think so. Also, you can just yolospam all premium with it and still make good credits, which is sort of funny. Not that I'd ever do such a thing. I ain't a dinger after all. :hiding:

T-34 and IS-6 are horribly outdated. Don´t waste your time or money.

It's not bad, to be honest. T34 is by far the most "reliable" tier VIII premium in my garage, mainly due to the gun. Very good penetration and high alpha, but it needs good crew and additional modules to really shine. Accuracy is kinda OK, the aiming time is the worst thing about the gun and the tank itself. Reload - not bad, not good.

 

Other than that - it is slow AF, turret is very stronk and can stop a surprising amount of high-caliber shells, the hull is a joke.

 

Boring, but reliable tank.

I mean if you have lots of credits just buy them to use in a  trade in event. You don't need to play them

Are you referring to the overgenerous pen buff?.. what is it now.. 183 mm?

 

I have both the T34 and the IS-6.. both are on my trade in/sell list, haven't played on either of them for ages. And don't really want to unless they get properly buffed soonish. A better player might make them work, I can't.

The IS6 is okay.... but nothing about it is exceptional

 

Nothing

 

But if you can get it for "free" credits then it's worth a punt

The CAX was a far better buy

Nothing is wrong, but you guys broke the servers yesterday. :P Its a known problem and WG are working on fixing it. Some people got their CAX after 1 hour, and some just this morning. I suggest to be a little more patient.
