Does it need to be elite?  the Q&A doesn't say so.  Anyone heard otherwise?

No, just has to be in your garage.

And I expect it to cost 12,500 like the Lowe when/if they roll it out for seasonal special sales.

T34 without it's top gun is a P.O.S.  The only thing that's even remotely decent about this tank is the gun.  Take that away and you have a craptastic tank T29.

Fixed that for you. :P

Agreed, there is no way it will be less then 12,500 if not more if it keeps the gun.

I realize it's keeping the 120mm.

But all these people saying it would suck in tier 8 with the 105mm - I'm not getting that. The T29 is just a few hundred HP and perhaps 1 RPM away from being a tier 8, that's more or less what the T34 would be - except with a higher credit coefficient.

Why do people with the Tiger II or IS-3 buy the Lowe or the KV-5?  Credits.

T34 wont be buyable only on specials later


That is the same that i have heard.

I heard in game that the premium T-34 would be tier 8. Isn't it a tier 9 now?

Yes it is being dropped a tier and made premium the M103 is replacing it at tier 9.

Yea they will take the gun and armor down to be a tier 8

It will loss some HP not armor, and will loss some ROF but pen damage are said to be staying the same as the current 122.


Best guess on price when it dose sale for special events is the same as the lowe.

The lowe has high acc good pen ..thus makes credits by dealing damage.
The Type59 gets the mobility to use its average for tier eight gun ..to do damage.
The HIGH damage the Lowe can generate was the justification for price raise to 12k
KV5 with poop gun for tier eight has tier weight and armour if used right to be worth 7500 gold.
How could they justify more than 7500 gold if its a T34 with a 105 ?
It would not have Lowe credit earning potential ..quite possibly not even KV5 ..
With the good Gun ..its a premium tier eight ..with decent potential if not survivable ..it depends on the rest of the package ..if its elited with a slight nerf to rof ..maybe close to the Lowe ..its in 1200 range ..
If its slower with less gun ..its arguable if its worth 7500 ..
So again ...
Why buy it if its the 105?
Frankly not worth the cash compared to what already exist ..it would be a tier eight T-14 ..

IMO, the t34 should not be buyable for any amount of gold. Think of its premium status as a 'reward' for all that have suffered thru that POS. For those looking to purchase it, too bad. You didnt do the grind, the endless FUUUUU battles, sweat and tears and now you want the easy way of obtaining it by purchasing it with gold? Sorry, Im not for that..  :Smile-bajan2:

There will be no 105 on the premium t34. They have already confirmed the premium t34 will keep it's current top 120 but will likely get a Rate Of Fire adjustment.

Oh man I can so agree with you on that one, and I refused to spend the 40k on upgraded the gun on the 32 as that was a large chunk of the 34s exp needed LOL. I know that was self induced but I also did that through to the T30 lol, I figure why should i upgrade the 34 if they will once it goes premium.

A tier 8 T29 that can net 60k-80k a game? I think people would buy that.

LMAO at calling the 105mm the tier 8 equivalent of a 75 L/37. If you can't handle tier 8 with the 198 penetration, then maybe you need an extra 50mm penetration as a crutch.
edit - oh lawed, your win rates in the tier 8 premiums range from 37%-42%. You don't need any more t8 premiums brah....

The real question with the 105 would be why not use the T32 which is far better in every way.  Yes the T34 would earn slightly better credits, but I have an M6A2E1 with a 58% win rate, and I'll tell you it doesn't roll the credits in, on average.  A 105 T34 would be no different and probably much worse since the M6A2E1 has absurd armor (helped by the fact 85% of players don't know where to shoot it).

Anyway, the T34 with get the 120.

My prediction: they will convert t34 to premium t8 yes, but it will earn as much as a m6a2e1 :D I don't think WG would give away a lowe like tank for free.

It will have a Tier X gun, so it may cost the same 12.500 Gold as the Lowe, or maybe even more...

But they already stated the tank should be reserved for only those guys who killed themselves getting it; so a T34 sale will be restricted and very limited, as the Type-59 premium.

If my prediction is correct, we'll be seeing "t34 credit earning broken" threads, new drinking game?

I C wat u did thar.
:Smile_harp:


I have to agree. Only those of us who were tortured to get it should get the premium version.

Releasing it for special events like the Type may infuriate some people, and I understand why. However, the US line has NO tier 8 Premium heavy that is readily buyable like the Russian KV-5 or German Lowe. I like the feeling of having a memento from a horrid grind, but what of the other players without one? the Mutant 6 went on sale for $70, and was promptly taken down. The T34 will definetly  be expensive.

Sigh...the grind to the T34 was NOT torture. Stop spewing out crap. The T29 and T32 were excellent tanks for their tier. T1 is severely overshadowed by the KV, but by no means a bad tank. It's a nice tank that can fight competitively against tier 7 and down. The M6 is a whole new beast with the 90mm but sucked with the 76mm gun.

The grind TO THE TOP GUN on the T34 is the torture.

Getting the T34 maxed out will mean that the M103 will be elite when you get it.  Otherwise the XP that you spent on the T34 will be transferred over based off of modules to the M103.  So it can be beneficial to upgrade the T34.
