We don't really care about this noobtank (mod1) 

 

Talk about when the WT W-100  is coming back? They promised to arrive at the Russian server tomorrow. Does this affect us here in Europe?

 

It will cost 4000 rubles. I hope  don't go higher than that. Will this tank be a tir10 or just a silly 8 version? Will it have an extra credit bonus at all like premium tanks do? Or will it be in reward status? Not all the same.:justwait:

Ahhh, yes, russian premiums, for which "balancing factors" don't apply.

 

I wish stuff like the Super Pershing, M4 Ravioli or T34 were as good as this thing.

You cant find better tier 8 premium med (all time available in shop) brawler than this. I think this tank is underrated, i know the pen and alpha are lowish in this meta, but its still competitive. If somebody would ask me what to buy from all time available tanks in prem shop i would say T54 mod1.

I agree, when I ask players they recommend this tank. And which gameplay do you recommend with it? Rather from a medium distance or can it afford to come closer to the enemy?

I play more carefully and I would welcome some advice on how to play with it :)

With this one i like to go aggressive and face hug other meds equipped with vents, rammer and stab. Although the gun is also kinda reliable on long distance shooting. But as mentioned i like to brawl in mod1.

well, they contribute heavily to WG's bank account balance, the most important balancing factor.

Don't forget to mention the most important factor - spamming gold :)

To be honest, if you do a good portion of DMG and you use premium ammo you still get a profit, so i think its completely up to players skill. But yes the 190 can be a pain sometimes. But if you flank its not a problem.

That's true but let's be honest, to make a profit while spamming gold even with a premium tank and a premium account so in p2w mode you still have to deal damage with the majority of your shoots fired and even then the said profit will be much lower than if you'd simply shoot standard ammunition. 

Playing like that is not a very good strategy for making credits unless that's not your goal then it's fine obviously.

Also, about flanking, it's not always possible, especially not on some very special maps.

If you've not enough penetration you quite often find yourself in a situation in which you have a choice between spamming gold or being virtually useless and that's definitely not very cool.

Shooting gold is never a good way to play this game! This ammo should be removed completely or rebalanced

Sadly thats the meta in game now. Either players adapt or they will leave. I too remember the old days when prem ammo was only for gold. I am occasional user of prem ammo, but i must tell you i rage less as the RNG bit with prem ammo is a bit smaller.

Indeed, it does have great potential... to suck!

 

Its so called good armor - check past sales for this and crap WG was spouting then about T54 mod 1 armor - bounces less shells than a wheeled vehicle.

 

Pen is a joke, alpha damage should have its own Netflix comedy special.

 

Should it be top tier there is a chance to have a better game than usual, provided you are not gold spammed or arty nuked.

 

Bottom line: it used to be a slightly competitive tank due to turret armor and tracks that nullified some shells but not anymore.

Aw, my rental one seemed fine in Frontlines. A bit less mobile than my t-44-100, but fine nonetheless. :medal:

For those who are crying for type 59, here you can get the better variant of that tank. T-44-100 is also a very good choice for a medium :great:
