T-34-3 for sale ? Nice, even if I don't have good WR with it I enjoy playing it.

"Crippling Blow" special to me will always associate with equipment 2.0 when there was no equipment discount for like 4-5 months? :teethhappy:

Now that was the realest crippling blow ever.

T-34-3 is my favourite tank in the game since it was introduced. But I have to admit, it has nothing to do against Geppettos, IS-3As, LT-432s, Objects and stuff. I like it, it has its moments but I would wait for the new Chinese medium tank, 122 TM. I think that one will belong to the "new generation premium tanks", or at least it will be closer to them. T-34-3 is a living fossil from a different WoT. 

Skorpion was one of the first new generation premium tanks, it is worth for those who like its playstyle. But I doubt that there is anyone out there who doesn't own it.

Anyone knows how the T-34-3 compares to the WZ 120 while playing? Obviously i can compare the stats but that is only part of the story.

WZ-120 feels much more agile, and that gun (Thor's Hammer) is - or at least it was, back then - one of the best at its tier. 

T-34-3 has a gun with much worse stats, it is just a good (or bad) ol' D25T. So you need to flank to make it work with that horrible pen and gun handling values. As I mentioned before, it is not so fast, the acceleration is average at best.

Turret armour is great on both tanks, but I would say that WZ-120 is a much better tank at its tier. Anyway, both are fun to play in my opinion.

Anytime. I have 1.000+ battles in T-34-3 and it has an emotional value for me. But if I want to be honest, I would not recommend it in nowadays' WoT environment. I would say that we will get the 122TM soon, wait for that instead. Or maybe a miracle will happen one day and they will offer Hype 59.

Have to agree there. The 390 alpha with such horrendous trade offs just doesnt really cut it anymore. We have 320 alpha guns on mediums now that reload twice as fast, pen 40mm more, and have better all round stats and even the platform is better.

If you want something like the T-34-3, play the regular chinese mediums. Theyre more fun now.

if you want a better comparison, compare it to the T-34-2, its very similar, but the HE use transforms the tank.
The T-34-3 would need substantial gun handling buffs and some pen to make it work. the 122TM is probably gonna be a reskin of the T-34-3, but its stats will be what the T-34-3 shouldve been.

 

My recommendation: Pass unless you like collecting tanks. Get the T-34-2, it has insane HE pen and HE DPM after the buffs, its more mobile too with the same armor. The pen is even a bit better too. At least you hit what you shoot at.

WG's description is very misleading - a.k.a. BS, as always:

"The T-34-3 is an agile and resilient Chinese medium tank that also packs a punch. The tough rounded turret protects a powerful 122 mm cannon and is mounted to a mobile hull, making it an unconventional, yet very dangerous close-quarters fighter."

Yes, it makes no sense that they don't sell Type 59. There is simply no reason now. Back then it was totally OP, with that unpenetrable armour but it is not the case anymore. So they could just sell it as any other older tank with preferential MM.

the Type 59 is the last big FOMO asset that WG has. it feels like the mystery surrounding that tank is what keeps the game itself alive.

as soon as the broad and unknowing part of the community would get a hold of it, the WG's whole house of cards would collapse for good.

be careful! the 5x XP are only for that one tank you bought it with. WG is trying to trick you into hard free XP conversion with gold!

Type 59 has so much hype around that WG will make money rain..and that's reason why they don't just sell it...even though it is mediocre tank in today's meta.

 

 

As for the rest of special offer....2 skorpions....... veery funny :)
