I think it's an insult from Wargaming for all players that bought premium tier 8 heavy tank. It's probably the worst tank in the entire game. You get frequently pened even through the turret which is on paper very strong. Your gun on paper "hits very hard", but in reality you can hardly hit or penetrate any tier 8 heavy tank and above. Every other tier 8 tank in the game will penetrate your armor no matter if it is hull, turret... and on the other hand you can't penetrate almost any other tier 8 heavy.   

 

It's obvious example of Wargaming's greed.... They made this tank worthless after a while so the players should buy a new premium tank... which will again become worthless and useless etc.

They buffed T34 when they buffed Löwe.

T34 and T34B are a huge shameful stain in WoT premium shop. Being rather expensive, these tanks are completely worthless and can be considered, as they are now, a steal of costumers money bringing bad publicity to this fine game.

T34 has tier 10 pen. If you can't hurt a tier 8 with it you need to learn to aim.

It's been pointed out as lacking for as long as you have played. The turret still works at times. The pen is still great, as it's the highest of any tier 8 HT. No one complains about that. Hull armor was never ideal on it.

 

But for me the killer is the DPM, with the mobility a sloppy 2nd. It's DPM is the same as clip gun heavies. It don't work to well in the current meta. There is a 1K difference vs my best tier 8 prem HT. The "it has alpha" argument WG used in the past is a bit useless now. As there is a 490 alpha tier 8 prem that can get over 2K dpm now, with only 22 less pen.

An aim time buff on 0.2 and minor dispersion buffs on the move was all it got. Would not call that a buff vs what the Lowe has seen. As that has been buffed 4 times the last 3 years iirc. Inc a 2x ammo load it did not really need.

This... these buffs were just cosmetical... they did nothing to make that thing really playable.

Black Market --> Buy T34 B to trade-in one day -- > Play a couple just to confirm how bad it is --> win 2 out of 8 --> Traded for STG --> Hit hard, have fun and win 58%.

I thought exactly the same as the OP, then I watched QB's old review of it online. By watching the vid I learnt the strengths and weaknesses of the 34 and try and play with them in mind.

 

It's an old premium tank, slow etc but it can make a profit.

 

I suggest that you watch some online stuff my good man.

Well, anything helps. It's just that they buffed areas it was not really lacking in, vs what still are common complaints on it.

Lowe is old too, and sure both can still make a profit. But they made the Lowe in to one of the more balanced tier 8 premiums that still works. That's all most want I suspect for this too.

I'm not going to argue that T34 is good or anything, but how the hell do you fail to penetrate T8 tanks in a tank that has both highest standard and premium penetration among T8 heavies?

Yeah, the buff wasn't anywhere near as good as what Löwe got. It still got buffed around the same time, so WG had their eye on it. I guess it was performing well enough back then to not receive a huge buff.

If all else fails, and me in this game do quite often, spam HE for the lolz, tier 9 T 30 feels exactly the same as the T 34, HE spam works well in that too.

 

Now typing this on my TV screen as game rage cost me a monitor, here is an interesting but at the same time uninteresting fact, now the TV is the 'monitor,' I can now log out of this forum, where as before I was permanently logged in, just how i the hell does that work then?

The first battle when I saw how slow it is I knew it is not for me. I have played another 7 just to be sure about the feeling, which helped me to realize that losing 6 out of 8 was more about the tank being bad rather than me making some major mistakes. Even the two I have won were miserable in terms of both how I have performed and how I felt about playing it.

 

That tank needs some buffs, it is just way to slow for the armor it has. Buffing any of the two (significantly) could improve it a lot.
