How should I play this sh *t tank?. This tank is making my winrate worse.Here are the things that let me down on this tank

1)Single hit on Hull and tank is lit on fire a huge problem oif you are using food to improve gun handling

2)Worst aim time takes forever.

3)Prone to ammo rack.

4)Gun dispersion is worse which makes hard to hit non fully aim shot.

5)Dpm is trash.

So I looked up for tier 8 and 9 which seems even more trash except the tier 10 which looks quite good.

It's not THAT bad, learn where you can use the turret armor and exploit that alpha :)

Maybe play something else to boost your precious winrate, I'm sure you have better tanks.

That did work okay till 2016 and still does against same tier an lower that don't have a sticky 2 key due to the credit inflation.

 

A lot of new t8 content has been released (or buffed) since, that can just negate that turret with std.

Also, it's long aim times with shallow gdp means that exposure time goes up.

With the enemies it faces anno 2019 it has just become even less comfortable to play compared to back then. Leo and A-44 out shine it on that respect though.

Actually T34-1 is the best tank in the Chinese medium tech tree. Top tier and you should dominate.

I 3Marked it with a decent winrate (61,54%) turret may not hold up when allowed to aim properly, but add some slight wiggle and angles Will work :)

Oh it is that bad. Even when it's maxed out it's a bag of toss.

Like the T34-100 in the Cz tree it can have some awesome support games but is basically shite.

And what do you do to improve yours?

 

As for the T-34-1, Underated tank at Tier 7... great tank. 34-1 > 34-2

It's actually one of the better tanks on that tier in terms of mediums.

It has a *VERY* strong turret for a medium, a low silhouette and a punchy gun with nice pen/alpha.

 

So logically you want to make use of terrain features (even very shallow ones) to hide your hull in while only exposing your turret. Then you can engage the enemies and bounce return fire on your turret.

When I played it I had no trouble bouncing even T9 TD guns off the turret.

Figure out how to get hull down and it works well. It is of course hard due to the bad depression, but you at least have better mobility to reach spots than a hull down heavy. Nice thing is once you learn to play it you'll also have mastered hull down play in a way which something with good depression may not, since these plays will also work for tanks with good depression.

This tank was a dissapointment, although didn't have good enough crew for it. It has nice turret, but bad gun depression limits its potential. Slow reload and bad accuracy don't help much either.

But since its low profile and has ok camo, you can use it as sort of a heavy scout, as long you get to use terrain and can avoid dogfights.

Otherwise keep at medium range and support others.

The tier 8 looked so bad after this, that after unlocking it I sold this tank and forgot chinese med line. Maybe if they ever buff it a bit...

I havent heard about any buffs to WZ 120? Its more than a year since i played it (if not more).
Im playing Obj 430 and it feels like easy mode compared to WZ.

I played it early game as LT, mid game as TD and late game as MT. Conserving hp pretty much is what this tank needs since getting hits in requires camo and time or brawling ranges. In 1vs many situations you are dead, end of.

It's much like turreted wz131ft. Good punch for it's size but abysmal handling, moderate mobility and armor that is just splinter shield, although 34-1s turret is okay against up to equal tier.

Not sure why you play it, but if your intention is to advance to tier 9/10 of that tree, reconsider the path you have taken. There is an alternative way to get there, and here is a comparison of the tier 8s of the two alternative ways you can choose. Yepp, the LT has better firepower (DPM & pen), gun handling and mobility than the MT, which just has the armor on its side. Soooo, your choice ;)

Remember a time T 34-1 was considered the best tier VII medium?
