It is good tank, I am very proud of my own. I got it free from marathon and you can believe that I was no-life guy then. It took couple months, daily average of 8 hours playing. Ofc pro players got it more easily but I am bad player.

That is why I am very proud that I own it.

I love my T44 but would like to take the girl crew through tier 9 and into tier 10 to enable Tier 10 skirmish/advances/cw etc, so this would make an ideal replacement premium at tier 8 and I've been waiting for it to come round again or appear in black market but the cost is just so ridiculously high :(

 

I have a little gold balance I could add to if it comes up for gold otherwise it's another waiting game for the T54 Mod1 to maybe apear in the black market or get a hefty discount on it's gold value.

 

It saddens me I'd like to progress up but the cost is too prohibitive - if you had priced tanks for £5-15 i would have bought loads more over the years.

 

I also know settling for the mod1 I'm going to be disapointed byits slower speed and ccrapier gun handling compared to tech tree T44

Got it last year on Black Friday für 50% off ~ 22Eur.

Thats what he is worth, but not the 44Eur.

 

Its a good tank yeah, but there are funnier and cheaper tanks like: Progetto, Lorraine, Lp432 and HWK 30.

Ebr too, but very special.

 

Greetings your Doom

Easy solution. Do you like what the company is doing with game? If yes, than if you like the tank buy it and dont care about the stats or anything else, if you have spare cash for it and you love it. If you dont like what company is doing to the game, or if they are going the wrong way, than dont support them.

 

See you on the battlefield.

Why is this £8-£15 more expensive than the other tier 8 premium medium tanks? While the t-44-100 is a good medium it is not THAT good.

 

T-44-100 is surely a competitive medium tank.

I have couple of battles on my own, and I can say that it's pretty enjoyable, if you're not pushing in the first line.

And when you get to be a top tier, then oh boy. :teethhappy:

isn't this tank too weak?
I became friends with the idea of buying because I read that it was good and needed an OP premium

I looked at his details and found it quite disappointing:

- very little breakthrough penetration. You can't break an armor with this. Bypassing is not fast enough. Actually even slow

- The front plate is very weak. Actually, it's paper. There will be no rebounds. I don't know if the side plates are good for something at all?

- his cannon is the same as his partner's T-54 mod1. The crosshairs are slightly narrower as you move, but you can't even notice them.  Just one second faster, the gun fires, which is negligible

 
- his partner  mod1. is the same, except he has at least armor. It's cheaper to get it permanently in the game

I see nothing good in this tank. :sceptic:

To answer couple of the points that you have brought up:

 

- Medium tanks in general do not posses amazing penetration values, after all, you're not supposed to 1v1 heavies.

 

- With the mobility of this tank, you don't really need armor, although the cheeks of the turret tend to bounce something from time to time. The sideskirts work as spaced armor against HEAT ammunition, it sometimes might be useful against higher tiers, but I wouldn't rely on it though.

 

- Regarding the gun, personally I love it, you can easily destroy an enemy tank if you flank it correctly, also, with that reload rate, perm-tracking is very much possible.

 

So far I have played 113 battles on this tank, and the only downside is that if you're not a top tier, you will use a lot of premium ammunition, which directly decreases your earnings. But still, overall a very fun tank if you're into mobile meds.

Well yes but I want them to be always there. I wish WG would allow us users to trade tanks between each other. For example I would trade a TD with another tank.
