Will this tank ever get any love from WG...

 

NME's only look at it and.. insta ammo-rack, get hit from behind and... fire

It's better to stick to the stock gun cause the 90mm T178 isn't worth it, reload is way to long with a shell less in comparison, which is weird looking at the same gun at Tier 9 witch has a shell more and a faster reload.

T69 is utter trash.

Worst T8 grind I've played.

Rubbish gun in every way. Low drum capacity, poor armour, poor gold ammo. Still the T71 DA and T57 Heavy are both worth it...

T69 used to be pretty damn good back when it had OP HEAT, now it's just really below average. And it hasn't even been nerfed IIRC, so yay powercreep...

It's just another tank on the huge list of tanks which need to be buffed.

DPM is on pair with most tier 8 med clip guns, inc the Lorr. Pen is a different matter and could be a reason to buff the reload. But it's still a support med, not a brawler. You flank fire and relocate when it reloads. I've faced a few in my T69 with the T71 gun. You get a faster reload and 100 more dpm. But with that burst damage you're not scaring off anyone. And I don't mind the trade.

I ground the T69 without 6th sense... Loved that silly bugger.

The T69

 

One of the reasons I quit grinding and stuck with premiums

I ground it almost exclusively in Frontlines. I can't say I enjoyed it much, mostly because of the poor gunhandling. Actually the tier9 with the stock gun is a lot better because you could actually hit stuff with it.

I really like the T69, currently my favourite t8 medium so far. Quite like the burst damage on a non-paper -9* gun dep mobile platform

That's because this tank is so bad that even with mediocre performance you will get very good stats in it.

 And if anyone here thinks T69 is bad, they should try TVP VTU. That thing is the stuff of nightmares.

It isn't so hard to check his stats and find out whether he is doing good or not in the tank if that's bothering you. In which case you'll find he's doing well in it not just relative to the tank's standard but to everyone's.

 

Spoiler

 

You could've done the same for the T69 to check how the tank itself performs and you'll find it performs well enough among tier 8 mediums for what that's worth!

 

T69 win rate

The Panther II is in my garage, the last hurdle before the E50 but I'm afraid to play it...

Just compare the T69 with the Progetto.

Currently grinding it and I love it. 2 days ago I fought alone against a Defender on Malinovka hill, won easily. 5/7 would recommend.

That Defender player must have been a very very bad player.. 

 

I moved it to my reserves.. not gonna touch it until it gets some love.

IMHO, there are worse tanks in Tier 8, and I say this as someone who grinded through T-34-2 to get WZ-120 (if curious no, it was not fun).

 

I'm actually curious to try T69 one day, I still remember the hype from when it was added to the game as it was the first time the American techtree received autoloaders (along with T71, T54E1 and T57 Heavy). IIRC the 10-shot M41 came later.

I've rebought it and going to give it a go again

 

That stock gun has potential

 

A sluggish medium with an autoloader may be its future, a decent support tank to stop heavies getting flanked

 

edit caveat: you need over 1000 damage before it starts making credits kinda thing so you've "got to want it"

I've got 257 battles in the T69. It maintains a respectable 52.14% WR (134 won, and 123 lost/drawn) but it wouldn't take much bad luck/play to get that down to 50% and an instant sell. 

 

It's one of those I've kept because I can. I take it out for missions when it seems to be suitable, but it's not a regular favourite of mine. I've read in the Wiki that the stock gun is viable but I've never gone back to it, even though I've done this before with other vehicles.
