As an owner of the T-54 mod. 1 and T-54, I enjoy their play style and they seem to click with me. I'm of the opinion that the T-44 is a keeper. Have you kept yours after the grind? If not, why?

I voted no because I'm not one to keep tanks and I already had the T-44-100 at the time :child:

Just as good a reason as any other :) Thanks for sharing!

T-44 was a good tank years ago for team battles - strongholds now . But I don't think just by looking at allot of the newer tanks in game that its not outlived it's usefulness yet . I'd keep it .

Its a good tank. I recommend keeping it if you dont have another similar tank.

For me it is a No. I do not use premium rounds unless i really need to and 190mm pen is low. Great mobility and good end of match tank, but I struggle to do anything usefull in it unless my team has already done most of the work. -7 Dep prevents it from really working a ridge.

Not a terrible grind, but I will not keep it.

Just got mine, still have 2 Motors and 2 Guns to Grind before Deciding it's Fate....       Was tempted to get the 44-100, but didn't have the Cash On Hand to get it....      

 

However, I am also one who has no Issues keeping a Tree Tank and it's Premium Sibling for x2's, Training, Credits, and general Fun if it's a Good Tank.....

If you like to keep tanks then yes it's a very good tank but if you have the 44-100 then there's no point really other than having the extra daily.

Loved mine. It's sorta redundant since u already own mod 1, but it's still faster and has overall well rounded attributes in speed and armor, vs mod 1 which is all armor and nothing else.

 

Keep it eitherway, drive the t44 for fun and when u need credits play mod 1 or sell it.

No, its good but boring tank and I dont think you need to keep VIII tier med (that is not premium)

I kept mine after it was elite - but moved the crew on up. And so it sat in my garage gathering dust.... If I wanted a tank like that, I had the T-44-100 and T-54 mod 1, which are similar, so no real problem. But then WG reorganized the Soviet tech tree, and my T-44 was no longer elite. I was glad I had the T-44 sitting there with equipment loaded whenever I had a crew available...

 

I took advantage of the specials last weekend to elite the A-44, where I had a new crew working their way up. Put 'em in the T-44 for the last week, and "grinding" for the Obj 430 has been a breeze - and with the on-track crew training specials, has been quite good for the crew too. It is a good tank and I will probably keep it again, but I will probably move the crew out again since I need the crew for higher tier tanks.

No, because of the Pay2Win T-44-100. T-44-100 has:

  • Better aim time
  • Better gun handling
  • Better top speed
  • Better power-to-weight
  • Significantly better terrain resistances
  • More hit points
  • More armor (spacing)

 

All at the cost of....

  • Some traverse speed
  • 3% extra chance of fire

 

Yeah... T-44 becomes completely pointless when tanks such as the T-44-100 exist.

If he doesn't have the T-44-100, the T-44 is a good tank. The T-44 is a good tank anyway so, if you aren't hurting for garage slots and/or Russian medium crews, keep the tank.

IMO, it's good now and fits the meta for whether at bottom or top tier cuz turret is a solid bounce and the gun packs a solid punch.

I think you'll enjoy it. Even if you do purchase the prem Russian meds, it's still a slightly, although very similar, different play style from the mod.1 and from the sounds of the the 40-100.

This would be a good reason as well. Having multiple Russian meds that are very similar. Die in one, load up another and grind a new crew if you're promoting this crew to a higher tier.

Agreed, not hurting in either after the last Christmas special event.

Pointless is a bit of a stretch but I believe I understand the overall premise.

I never liked it for two reasons....

 

1. Too slow

2. Ammo-Racks like crazy.

 

Plus, I have the T-44-100, which seems a bit decent.

Used to also have the Mod 1, and it was actually my first good premium tank, but they massively slowed the tank down so it became crap to me.

It used to I think have the speeds the 44-100 currently has, but sadly it doesn't have the Mod 1's armor.

I just got the t-44, it feels good but the low pen is messing with me and I haven't gotten the hang of it yet.
