My final battle in my Type T-34 before moving on to the Type 58.

slightly reckless...

slightly stupid...

total fun.

I never grew to love this tank as i do the T-34...

something about it just makes it feel inferior.

Now i never have to play it again.

I never know how to play this tank. It seems flanking gets me killed and a support roles ends up with me gaining insignificant amounts of xp.

Gun depression most likely.

And the Type58 is worse.  Take a T-34-85.  Now make its gun weaker.  Now make it slower.  Now make it have no gun depression.  Type58!

I can't say I like this tank very much, mainly it's the gun.......kind of like a chicken pecking something to death......it takes a while to get a kill. This is the only tank I have that MM usually puts dead on the bottom. I have, however, made 5 kills in one game with this thing......just hope the type 58 is better.

Just preparing you for the awful truth.

IS-2 is similar if you plan on going that route, though it has silly good gold rounds on the 122s.
59-16 is fun as heck.  Not sure on the T-34-1.

Makes me so glad the Devs spent that full 5minutes copying and pasting unfun tanks that we already had...

then tweaking them to make them slightly inferior to their RU copies.

I'm funny with some tanks,

I dislike them at first,,,maybe even in general , but as I get towards the end of a real grind (as in grinding most of the XP on the tank, not just free XPing past it) , I sometimes have a hard time selling them. The result is a garage full of tanks I don't play much.

I'm a pretty terrible "pro gamer", I keep and play tanks that are no where near the best of their tier /shrug

many tanks don't really 'come alive' until they are elited too....

it always seems that right about the time i am ready to move on, then POOF my tank stops being crap.

aye, could be the crews too. I'm too poor/cheap to gold crew, so I start with 75%ers.

Same here.  Retraining crews always seemed to be a poor use of gold to me, although I'm sure somebody could do the math and see if that's correct or not.

The Type T-34 is a "bit-more-than-average fast" sniper...think of it as a slightly-slower Panther and you have the proper play-style for it...as I said in another thread, for whatever reason, the Type T-34 is definitely not as agile and springy as the Russian T-34...somehow, I've managed to have several long(for me, anyway, 6-7 battles in a row) winning streaks in it.

I was about to ask you about that in your M4 derp weekend thread lol. The type 34 sucked to me but for some reason I ended up with a 61% win ratio in it o.O The accuracy was horrid on that tank. I'm hoping the tier 8-10 will make it worth it.

Type 58 is the worst in the line if you ask me.  Just got my t-34-1 fully upgraded and it's a great tank, plan on keeping it.
