Don't know who throwing around all the neg rep but I +1 ya anyways.

Just got my T-44 and stock it was downright painfull, but once you get the LB-1 and the better engines it becomes rad to the power of sic to play, can't wait to get the T-54.

Thats interesting dice1, considering you've played no games!

I agree Kazuk.  T44 is more agile (faster acceleration) the turning rates are so close if not the same that really it's the acceleration that givs the 44 the close quarters edge in maueverability.  44 and has the better gun and the 59 has the better turret.  1 on 1 the ability of the drivers matters more than the differences between the two.  I love em both and prefer the 44 because it gives you the option to be effective at long range as well.

I agree with this only I'm not having any issues with turning in my T-44, I find it easy to out turn Types in it.

Well I got my T-44 and initially....yuch on the guns...but once I upgraded to the LB-1...transformed...great tank.  I still need the top engine but I'm liking it a lot...very quick and have lots of confidence in the gun now (that D10T sucked).  I'll be grinding now to work up to that T-54 but so far, the T-44 is a keeper!  Thanks again for all the advice!

Congrats! It is an awesome vehicle and I'm glad you're enjoying it! Good luck and good hunting, I hope to meet you on the battlefield.

I did my T-54 grind at the same time and you're absolutely correct. I was actually waiting for the patch to introduce the LB-1, but got so sick of not playing my T-54 (it was new to me and I liked it!) that I eventually just ground out the LB-1 on it as well as the tracks, engine and turret all before getting the top gun. My win rate was AWFUL. I was actually ashamed of it. Had it fully upgraded for a hot minute now and I've pulled the win rate out of the abyss. The T-54 is probably my absolute favorite tank to play right now... with the T-44 as a close second.
I was similar except i got my 54 a month after release (no premium). It was AWFUL grinding the LB-1, the turret, then gun etc. to be able to actually do anything. And what was even worse was the fact that hardly anyone had tier IX and X and you were in battles with 3 or 4 tanks. I love the t-54 too, but as it is so expensive to run (especially after you get the last gun where shells cost 1000+ creds) that i hardly use it now that it is elite.

As for the comparison between the type and the t54 - there is no comparison. The type is a watered down T-54 to a point that i can't even hug most tanks with it (unlike the 54) and it's maneuverability is absolute garbage. But i would recommend the USSR medium line to anyone who likes to get in and fight some tanks in a brawl.

54 is amazing, and when 59's try to duel with you its laughable because with the best gun on the 54 you can spit right in their face.

I hadn't really meant to 'compare' the type 59 with the T-54...I know from first hand evidence that I get powned by those 54's easily from first hand experience.  I was intending simply to ask about how you play them...and thus far I have found it to be a bit similar...though the type-59 is so darned slow to accelerate.  I now have about 75 games in my T-44 and simply love this tank.  It is without a doubt the funnest machine I have yet played and I am looking forward to the T-54 (though my E-50 experience was horrible).  So I thank youu all again for the advice...T-44 ROCKS!!!!   :Smile-playing:

i am 17300 exp away from the T44 atm and i simply CAN NOT WAIT!

i have had no experience of actually driving either of those are a result... however i have faced against many of them...

In my pershing i can easily kill both the T44 and type 59 with pretty much no trouble at all.. but when i come face to face with a T-54... well...  :(

yah... i am pretty much dead... can;t out gun him, (can;t even pen XD) can;t run away... i just hammer the F7 button and pray XD
