T-54 is underpowered and needs a buff, imo

I would sure like a buff. Too bad the devs are so obsessed with statistics as though what noobs make of it matters one bit.

T-54 needs the tier 10 ground resistance values obviously.

IMO the M46 can't have such OP gun depression...unless the T-54 has it too. Buff T-54!

I like how you're probably thinking the hidden stats are somehow worse than yours.

Or that anyone can't go look them up in a plethora of places... must be hiding something!

Only problem is, the program keeps stats over time.  You won't have pretty charts until you have it running for a while.  Even without the historical archive, some features are still very useful.

My first 350 games or so in this thing were with the original gun and very limited gold usage. I did ok, but not anything close to resembling good. Then the new gun came out. I saw the lower pen on the standard rounds and stayed away. Then silver premium hit and I picked up the new gun - wow, what a difference - my win rate went from the low 50s to north of 60% over my last 100 games or so, almost all solo.

I only platoon with my one clan-mate (and occasionally we run with his 10 year old son) and I talked him into buying the thing. FINALLY I have another T-54 to platoon with. Before that we we ran my T-54 with his Lorraine. That was a good combo, but not nearly as good as two 54s.

Premium rounds for creds.

The second coming of the T-54.

I still don't understand to this day why the T-54 has a 120mm glacis, when the huge, vast majority of all production T-54s had a 99@60 glacis..

And that's why my overall stats atm are not much higher, made the mistake of starting this game on a shit PC and thinking that arty+audiobooks is fun.
Haven't played arty in months and that's the point.
Arty will never help you get better, it's a complete waste of time - but maybe you don't have the brains to ever get better in any tank...

What's your WinRate in the T54, without gold ammo, btw?
If you are the king of meds, you might want to go goldless and solo and try to win each match.
For added challenge, remove all mods except for Jimbos...

If you're going to claim a throne, might want to not seem like you bought it with a well-chosen marriage.

I liked the one where the Type 59 bitched about gold ammo, when you were shooting him in the side.

Next up: he's only going to drive stock tanks, backwards, and fire HE.

Seriously, if you're not using every advantage the game offers you to win, then why exactly are you playing?

For fun of course. And gold ammo is NOT fun obviously.

Someone mentioned to me how it felt "cheap" to pay more silver for better penetration. To which my response was-- do you use the long 88 on the Tiger II as well, because the ammo for the 105 is 3x the cost? or the 100 mm on the IS instead of the D-25-T? Or the 17 pdr on the Centurion instead of the 20 pdr? In all cases you're paying more for more penetration.

Why would I play the T54 without gold ammo? Where did I say I was the king of meds? and where did I say I wanted a challenge?
You sure do a good impersonation of a retard... oh wait.

So which is it that's overpowered again -- the IS6, the t-54, heat spam, m4 derps, t7 farming, pz1 C, t2s, or can we just come out and say its the platoons of top players?

Ha ha ... I've actually said this to troll ...

truly elite tankers play with:
50% crew
all stock modules
no equipment
no consumables
HE rounds
driving backwards
