Explain how this is "balanced". Please. Try to justify why the $50 tank has a better cannon at tier 8 than the tanks you earn do at tier 9 and 10. Keep in mind, the 12.8cm is also the best German heavy cannon, not just a similar one to that 120mm.

At tier 8? Against tier 8s? If it's angled it will still bounce shots.

And it has 279 frontal turret armor + spaced mantlet, and an abnormally robust cupola, as well as -10 gun depression.

The 4502P won't bounce anything from tier 9s, and the E100 lower plate is weaker than the E-75's plus constant frontal fires.

So don't even say shit about armor.

Play it and you will see. Most of the shots deal less than 350 even on paper tank like AMX 50 120, while some jump up to 500 like on VK45A's side. It happened to me last night.
And the German gun always deal at least 350.

But the KV-1S has 175 pen, and the E8 has 128.

The 1S will pen any tier 8 with ease, and the E8 can pen all but the Russian ones, I mean, it might have to aim for the lower plate of the Tiger 2, but it's not like the lower plate on the Tiger 2 is larger than the entire frontal hull of a T34 or anything.

Maybe because the minimum on the 12.8 is 368.

Please don't try arguing if you don't even understand the DAMAGE mechanics which most people learn at tier 1.

Random is random, it's not specific to hitting 20mm of armor or 200mm of armor.

No. Shoot the part around the mantlet and you'll see how easy it is to pen. I'm pretty sure it's the same turret as the stock T29 actually, except with an extra rear armor plate.

>The 4502P won't bounce anything from tier 9s

The 4502B has 264mm on the upper plate and 212mm on the lower plate. With a tiny amount of angling your upper plate will bounce T10 guns and your lower plate will bounce T8 guns.

Almost everyone I know with a T34 cry so. Its damage is too temperamental. Way too many times it deals less than 350.
And I dare you to find any tier VIII German player that deal less than 350 more than once every 10 shots.
Also, face to face, the T34 can't win any tier IX. I'd say at tier VIII it will meet its match being Tiger II and IS-3, AMX with full drum will rape it. But at tier IX, it can't win shit.

So golden joystick sale is hopefully coming up, gonna buy my E50 that I finally finished my gold-free grind on.

That said, if the circuit city codes get in and my clan wars payouts keep up I should have about 11k gold when the sale goes live.

Should I get a t34, and can I train my t92 crew in the t34?

Basically I want something to grind credits with besides my lowe and since it will be on sale for less than normal I was wondering if it is worth it.

Well, considering the MAX damage a tier 8 German tank can deal is 400, with a WHOPPING 23-48 pen less than the T34, your chance of hitting over 350 is what, 15%? So About 1/10 shots will be over 350 damage.

And you don't understand pen/bounce mechanics.

The short 10.5, which is the best cannon the 4502A can mount (Another tier 8 heavy), can go as low as 150pen. A very, very slightly angled T34 beats that and will bounce it. As well, the short 10.5 is .37 to the T34's .35 accuracy. And 320 average damage to 400.

$50 premium tank is better than three tiers worth of German heavies with the exception of the E-75 when playing against complete idiots.

Because any smart player knows that the cupola of the E-75 is auto pen and incredibly easy to hit.

If you're comparing T34 to the Maus/E75/VK/Tiger II, it's just 2 fucking pens.
Also not to mention bigger caliber means more normalization.

VK45A is a piece of crap. Why do you compare it to the T34?
The T34 was originally tier IX, that's why it has ridiculous gun.
And in defense of VK45A, it has fucking higher mobility than T34. Its turret turns faster, it aims faster, and certainly better RoF.

Oh, I'm sorry, when a tank has its tier LOWERED generally it's nerfed in some way to make it match the tier it was placed in.

But it wasn't? Oh my, that's strange, I wonder why the T34 is so ridiculous then.

Alright, I fucked up a bit on the reading but here:
The T34 sure has higher pen and damage, but the German tanks tier VIII have much higher RoF and aim time. No tier VIII German reloads at 15 seconds and has 3.4 seconds of aiming time. Not to mention that Tiger II's armor is higher than the T34, and the VK45A even though doesn't have as much armor, it has much better speed and RoF, which it can use to flank people.

T34 doesn't have to flank people, it has the highest pen of any tier 8, as well as the highest damage.10 higher than the IS-3's BL-9, which has .3 accuracy and 225 pen by the way, compared to 248 and .35.

The fact is, the T34 is too much tank for a tier 8, and it's $50.

You don't have to work for upgrades, and it's better than even some ELITED tier 9s.

Anonymous 2012-10-25 07:34:49 No.16988924
In my opinion, the T34 is much better than the Lowe. The Lowe has non-existent armor, terrible speed and overall bad. Its gun is not as good as T34's either.
I think if you weight between T34 and Lowe, and you already owned the Lowe, I'd say you will love the T34.
That being said, if you just want something to grind credit along the Lowe and grinding crew is optional, pick the JagdTiger 88. I say it's fucking wonderful. Its gun shoots so fast it wipes the IS out in 20 seconds, and 2 of it can make even an E-75 cry river in 15.

It doesn't have to flank people, but it can't fight head-on either.
If it fight head-on, most certain that it can't bounce as much as Tiger II, UNLESS it is going hull-down.
The IS-3 also has better armor, as long as you don't angle it.

I tried a 88 on the test server and hated it, I don't know if that is because of my love for my ISU or what, but I do love my lowe and the turret thereof although I guess I never met any good t34 drivers as I have always won in my lowe vs them.

Thats good to know though ill give the 88 another shot if the test server is still up tomorrow.

The JagdTig 88 is a bit difficult to play.
You don't have the camo like other tanks, you don't have alpha damage like other TDs, but you do have a fast-shooting gun with high as hell DPM And practically it is about... 2500 DPM. With Rammer it might be even HIGHER.
That reminds me, I need to get a rammer... Although I don't think half a second is worth it...

First, the Tiger can just shoot the MG port or the lower plate of the T34. Guaranteed pen.

Secondly, if the Tiger is slightly lucky, 4% extra damage above average, it will kill the T34 in 6 shots, not 7. For the T34 to do that, it would have to shoot 21% over its average damage.

You are the one talking out of your ass.

His specific situation is that both tanks are sitting there, the Tiger is penning a very small weak spot in the front of the T34 every single shot for free and the T34 is shooting him wherever because it doesn't matter he'll pen everywhere.

And they are just sitting there in the open shooting, while the Tiger is allowed to hit for over his average but the T34 is not.

Thus, the Tiger wins because that is going to happen ever.

No, one is a tier 9 gun. Look at the Roman numerals.

And as people have said before, the rest of T34 is extremely lackluster to make up for that gun. You've got the gun, and you've got the frontal+rear plates on the turret. That's it. It's slow, its hull armor is a joke, and its turret traverse is actually slower than the E-100's.

Anonymous 2012-10-25 08:21:58 No.16990993

Lower plate is a very small weak spot? Stay bad.

Also, if both hit for average damage, both will die at the same time.

If both hit for 1-3% above their average damage, same result.

If both hit for 4%-20% above their average damage, Tiger wins.

If both hit for 21-24% above their average damage, T34 wins.

If both hit for 25% above their average damage, Tiger wins.

As I understand it, it's a bit more durable and has a better gun (not in terms of damage, but in terms of not having a retarded aim time) in exchange for some maneuverability.

Hard to make good use of that top gun on the Luchs though, that fucking aim time.

Luchs is a better scout with the other turret and autocannon, if it's good enough for a Pz II, it's good enough for me! (I run the same gun on the Leopard too)

>A very, very slightly angled T34 beats that and will bounce it
So an angled T34 has a slight chance of bouncing the worst pen of a gun that has subpar penetration for T8...

And let's compare the two tanks a bit further:
VK4502A has
- great mobility, can run with meds
- better overall armor, bounces meds of same tier and most lower tier heavies/TDs
- beter DPS

T34 has
- 127mm front turret armor
- 279mm mantlet that sometimes stacks with the front turret armor
- shit armor everywhere else
- mobility of a beached whale
- worst on the move accuracy in game
- gun with high pen and accuracy, but it takes several geological eras to stabilize enough to be accurate

tl,dr: T34 cannot win against any other T8 heavy, unless it's in a hull-down position that is also safe from arty.

BTW, the Lowe also has an excellent turret mantlet. Last night I (T34) was trading shots with a Lowe, both of us hull-down. Neither one of us could pen the other (I bounced 5-6 his shots, he bounced 3 of mine)

So what do you guys think will be some low-tier (2-3) 'fun'/pubstomping tanks that can get a nice boost from premium ammo?

Anonymous 2012-10-25 12:50:52 No.17003224
So which tanks are able to drift through turns?

Aside from the obvious T-50/T-50-2, the only other 2 tanks I've managed to get drifting are the AMX 13 90, and the M18 (the M18 was going down hill, somehow I got it drift, can't reproduce consistently).

39 matches with a 70% w/l and 31559xp later, I'm finally done with SU-100 and will never have to play this piece of shit ever again.

Have I mentioned I hate the SU-100?
Because I really fucking hate it.

Now 8.1 needs to come out so I can spam HEAT out of the 152.
Oh god that will be so glorious.

VK2801 and Luchs do quite often, usually if you crest a small bump or head downhill and turn rather than constantly like the T-50-2.

Anonymous 2012-10-25 12:53:44 No.17003327
luchs or pz2 with autocannon.

Definitely luchs. I've also done it with the ELC and like you the 13 90.

I'll have to rebuy the Luchs and play around with it, I was done with it before physics, looking forward to VK2801 physics, though it might be a while since the Leopard is just.... why?

Yeah, camo net, binocs, sit in a bush and alt-tab if you're particularly lazy.

VK2801 isn't particularly special with physics anyway, the Luchs is more fun to drive IMO.

Make sure you use the stock turret and autocannon for maximum drifting goodness.

Anonymous 2012-10-25 13:07:20 No.17003854

Normally I look down on suicide scouts, but with the Leopard I can't help but really do that myself since it's so bad. I play out tier 4 games, and try to play out 5 and 6, but 7+ is just RR new tank time.

Is the VK2801 worth the pain of the Leopard?


Then so it shall be.

Anonymous 2012-10-25 13:12:32 No.17004030
The VK2801 can be amazing, the gun is very nice, but it's a bit of a brick sometimes, you really do need to learn the maps carefully to be able to maintain your speed, it's a great raider and scout-scounter as well as being pretty decent in a pure scouting role.

If you have any interest in scouting, make sure to read Tazilon's scouting guide in the pastebin, it vastly improved my performance in it and all the other scouts.

It can actually use the 76mm M1A2, so it fires slightly faster, with a slightly better accuracy, and I believe also slightly better aim time.

But yeah it's a great tank and I've kept mine. The 105mm can also provide an alternate style of play for it, I find both fun and switch back and forth.

Anonymous 2012-10-25 13:54:58 No.17005542
Hated it at first, got used to it then started enjoying it when I started winning ending with 60% ratio by the time I moved on from it.

I didn't like it at first because it
a) Had a gun no more powerful than the previous T40,
b) Handled like a brick
c) Did nothing better than my favorite the PzIII/IV except for having a high ROF gun once upgraded.

So I suppose it is like any other tank, mostly absolute crap until upgraded and you've gotten used to using.

This was just my experience with it, yours may vary.
Still trying to get to the 90mm in the Hellcat, right now I can damage hardly anything unless I am the highest tier.
>T6 as damaging as a T4

Anonymous 2012-10-25 13:56:32 No.17005601

It's not the same gun.
Why I've heard it repeated that it is multiple times now I have no fucking idea.


The difference is a gigantic RoF bump.

Anyway, M10 is arguably second best T5 TD, retards obsessed with GOTTA GO FAST will say T49 is better, it's not(same syndrome of people claim E8 is gods gift from WG and is infinitely better than the E2 when it's arguably horrible and can't fulfill its proper role well at all unless it's top tier).

Only TD that tops it in its tier is S-35CA, due to still having an absolutely ridiculous gun, but M10 beats it in DPM, mobility, depression and that it has a turret - so M10 is a much better field TD while S-35CA ends up a better bush TD.

Anonymous 2012-10-25 14:00:20 No.17005703
Don't forget the M10 also has a rather bouncy turret.

Anonymous 2012-10-25 14:07:33 No.17005974

Yeah the E2/E8 thing is amusing to me, since the E8 is literally just a slightly better in every way M4 but with more hitpoints. Which means it's great as long as you're not seeing T8s, because you're seeing everything a standard M4 would see except you're better, the problem comes when you see T8s which seems to be about every other battle.

The E2 with the stock turret and the 105 is a pretty solid tank, in my opinion. Not exactly the best, and still a bit inadequate against T8s, but just really solid.

It's got a great gun with great stats, penetration is a little low and the damage is lacklustre for it's tier, but with a decent crew you fire every 5 seconds and it's fucking accurate.

Downside is, you're a very large very slow lump with a lot of weakspots on the lower hull, terrible turning speed (Far lower than the stated stats) and you're about as fast as a Slowe. Oh, and your sides are paper.

I make about 35K on average in mine, for a decent match win, without premium.

Anonymous 2012-10-25 15:09:48 No.17008856
Meh. It's a very cool tank, but much less reliable than the Marder II. It relies on quickly dealing the killing blow. If it fails, it's dead.

Meanwhile the Marder can safely keep back and snipe suckas left and right.

Anonymous 2012-10-25 15:11:37 No.17008953
But the T82 can do that with the 57mm and it's fast enough to relocate and avoid arty fire unlike the Marder.

Now that I think of it, using the gold for premium on weekends (which is when I mostly play) will probably get me more profit. I mostly play T5 / T6 tanks anyway.

Would still love to have the JgTiger though, just because it looks so awesome. I'm about to buy JgPzIV and haven't heard many good things about it.

It has the META cannon, and it's got a 10.something second reload on 100% crew/vents/rammer, it's just...
I don't even know.
It straddles the fine line of being accurate but not being able to hit the broad side of a barn.

I don't even know how many times where I've taken multiple shots only for each one to stray into a pen no damage. I just happened all the fucking time. The 175 pen also kind of sucks when you're forced into t8 matches 80% of the time; as does the zero armor.

The SU-152?
I'm going to rape machine on it with gold rounds.
It actually will be a mix of sniping with a .5 accuracy cannon and giggling like a little school girl when I shave 700hp off of someone, a mix of 1-shotting random scouts that stray too close, and being a semi-close quarters "stay the fuck away from me" gun.
With gold rounds, the 152 is basically a slightly lower alpha, lower pen BL-10 that's a bit more inaccurate.
