At least give it higher alpha or something. This tank is horrible but I want to play it since I payed for it. Sorry that I want service for my money spent :bajan:

There is a big problem with T34, so WG will not buff it.

It is not Russian.  :sceptic:

It's the reload time that's this tanks Achilles heal from my limited experience with it. On paper, it has a base damage of 1,668 dpm which is laughable and the base aim time needs to be reduced from 14+ seconds to about 12 imo, whatever base reload time that would ultimately translate into this tank having a 10 second reload after it has it's rammer, vents and crew installed in it. That way, it would reload more along the lines of a similar hitting M4 Rev at tier8 which is just about right for a T8. 

 

I don't think the alpha can be changed unless you change out the gun entirely as I think it shares the same or similar gun with the tier9 heavy and the tier8 TS-5 TD. Actually, I will use the TS-5 here as an example to showcase just how laughably out of touch this tanks reload speed really is. Now, the TS-5 is a TD and I guess the trade is that the TD doesn't have a turret and is a bit slower with less gun dep, however, in exchange for that it has really very strong armor, savage dpm and an awesome aim time with effectively the same T34 gun. While the T34 reloads with a base speed of 14.38 seconds the TS-5 with the same gun and alpha reloads in 8.15 seconds, that's just massively better. T34 aim time, 3 seconds, TS-5, 1.7 seconds lol. 

 

Anyway, whatever about the aim time it's just the reload speed I feel needs a buff with this tank, from 14+ to 12 even. It just makes missed shots, rng, low rolls and switching ammo types really punishing and not in keeping with how it really should be and other T8 heavies.

It's not russian so no buffs lol

I got it on black market, but I know people who paid for T34 12k gold and now they cant even play it... it's sad.

They should make the tank similar to T-103 TD (which is A LOT CHEAPER) - so buff dpm to 2,2k and aim time to 2,6 seconds, buff gun handling, buff mobility and that's minimum it needs. It could use small turret armor buff too... and it would be still worse than most new premiums - and a lot of those are cheaper than 12k gold...

To be fair.. buffing a rushian tank would probably earn wg more sales on ru server than buffing a US tank.. the tank is a relic. Not good enough for a heavy. A very bad td... 

It is my most played tank.. but i keep losing games in mine. And i will slowly stop playing it for sure.

WG will put a guy on the moon before they buff it

The IS-6 is Russian and still a pile of dung, the Russian bias is getting old really, the best heavy is British, the best light French, the best arty American or British, etc.
