Now that the type59 has become the next big thing in the premium tank line does this mean its the end of the T54? I personally haven't seen a T-54 in the last two weeks...

Today I saw pretty much T-54. Even there was battle where there was 4 of them.

I don't think that a T$$ or T54 driver would prefer a Type-59 gameplay wise? Maybe only for farming credits ...

But I agree, but that is not only T54 but the other 2 T9 mediums as well. A rarely see a Patton and E-50 nowadays. I point it to the current suspension of the CWs
High tier Players might keep away from the game currently until CW is back

T54 is still the best battle scout, so I doubt it will simply go poof.

I don't find T-54 any rarer than other vehicles. They USED to be in a bundance as they were known to be, and I loathe to say this, "OP". Now they seem to be used no more than the average vehicle is, and that's not a bad thing. What IS a bad thing is how all of those players that swarmed after the T-54 when it was know as OP has now moved to the Type 59 (trough Lowe it seems, typically =3). Personally I've stopped driving my Type 59 in protest of the stupidly large numbers of those you get in some matches =3.

Hello ..
I think that it is expensive to run. So I do not run so much more in it, as I have done in the past .. It is otherwise a really good tank to drive around in, but again needed the silver in order to run. (Repair)
I have a premium account .. I get a plus when it goes really well .. But am I doing fairly. Then it's almost just straight up. And it should be 50% more silver and exp .. Lol. sometimes I doubt..

And when they saw the bargain reduces earnings arty GW panther by 10%. As I also have .. So it is often difficult to get things running around!

And now that they have the E50,(1800 hp) as many is driving now and more difficult to penetrate..  The T54 (1650 hp) dont seem to be that attractive anymore. Although I personally think it's the coolest of the 3 medium.

I think there are several reasons for seeing less T54s yes the type is a factor, but also there are less T44s around, t44s were the most popular tier 8 med at one point, as it was also seen as a bit OP even if it did blow up if it ran over a ant.

less people going t44 means less people grinding for t54

this may change once again with the new gun added to the armor normalization.

E50s appear to be the most popular, pattons have always been rare.

There are a lot more T-44's out now since the 7.0 patch. And they are a lot more dangerous.

My guess is a lot of T-54 players also got a T-44.

I have T-44 and while playing with it, almost in every battle I was, there also were atleast one T-54.

I'm only playing the T-54 a few times pr. day. After the 7.0 patch and consequent T-44 upgrade, I find it more fun to play the T-44  :Smile_great:

My T54 stays in garage for several reasons. One of them is that T54 ends up in matches with 80% tier 10 tanks and about 5 arties per side. Thats simply no fun anymore. If i want a tier 10 match i prefer IS-7.

Its the shell/role.

Battle scout is useless in lemming-train oriented pubs.
The running costs is horrible, partly due to gun, partly due to worst dmg per silver ratio ingame:)
And matchmaking hates you.

And yes, even the zealous T-54 drivers(me) have went for T-44. It makes me more money, gets better matchmaking and i don't have to take crap for OP tank/retarded driver that often.
Tbh i haven't bothered to even drive double on it lately. Needs to much focus and brings little reward.(pubs)

I think the reason you see less T-54 is the matchmaking change in 0.6.7 patch (IIRC). Tier9 mediums went up a bit, and Type59 fills all the matches where those used to be.

Hop into Tier10 tank or Tier9 Medium tank, and you'll see T-54 quite often. At least I see them often, when playing my T-54 or IS-7.

Pretty much the same reason for me.

there to exspencive to drive around with even on prepium account. Even on a really good battle its hard to make profit with it because of the ammo cost. Driving around and blasting away is not done in this tank and better make sure it hits the target .
With all the whinning in the past about t54 "OP" the tank got nerft to dead, ok you will see it pop up sometimes because sometimes you need a break from the heavy's (like me :P ).But think in the next patch we will see (already started :D ) alot of type 59 players whinning about being in higher tier battles. If you go read here on the forum (chinese tanks) you can have some fun  :D .
The only reason you see types alot is because there in lower tier battles and in wolf pak there deadly but this will change  :P

The only reason why I dont play T54 is cause its fucking expensive to play with... its the only T9 tank so far I have in my garage that I can't sustain with free account... IS 4 is no problem... not even the crap tank like the T34... but the the T54... thats another beast....

The tank itself is ok if you know what and how you can do it.. but wont touch it when I am on free account cause its a money burner...

I think the over all problem is tier 9.

The only tier 9 med I have is the patton, only up the T-43 is the RU line(and Panther 2 for the Ger). I want the T54 eventually, and the E-50.
But tier 9 is a horrible place for medium tanks. I can only play my patton during high traffic times, otherwise I end up in city battles paired off against E75's.


I don't imagine that its any different with the T54 or the E-50

The only time I see number of tier 9 med is during special events - like 5x, or late night during the weekend.

type made me fall in love with meds and now im almost through T44, cant wait to sell that paperferrari.
no idea where my love for Russia (not only WOT) comes from, but it was not intentional to drive an OP tank

im with the fella that pointed out the CW beeing down, ive seen less than before since patch, i guess they´ll be back soon

I was really looking forward to my T54 when grinding the T44, but now i am a bit disappointed cause its such a moneyburner :( ..
Premium account, 2 kills, 10 shots fired, 8 hits and hardly not the credits back to repair and refill ammo...
Now my premium expired i go about 10k credits minus everytime i play the T54..
Is it the same for everyone?

yep pretty much with good games I break even or make a smapp profit... but once you get killed and shot more then 10 rounds you are in the 10-20k red zone...
