You buy that premium yet Ober? I have the T34-3. It's not bad but can be a tough tank to play sometimes.
I bought it last week-end when it was 15% off. I do like the tank even though I need more practice playing with the limited gun depression and hanging back more often cause of the 12 sec reload time. I really like the damage the thing does.....BOOM and -400 damage from enemies but you have to be careful choosing your shots that have the best chance of penetrating. The Centurion 7/1 with the 105mm has been good practice learning to play with the 10 second reload time and the glass hull.
Played some more battles in this last night. Its kinda a feast or famine tank, when you do well you really do well and when you do poor.......
Its really a steep learning curve to be effective in this tank but I'm catching on slowly. I have to relearn where to play this tank on maps, it plays so different than any other medium I've ever played. Flat ground and city maps seem to be its specialty as long as there is somewhere to hide it between reloads.
I love how intimidating the damage can be on opponents and how they tend to back-off once you've hit them for 400 in damage a few times. Played on Northwest last night and had an agressive IS-6 pushing our group of mediums, that is until I hit his mantlet for 440 in damage and destroyed his gun. that knocked the wind from his sails. The mediums harassed him into ignoring me and over the next 3 shots I ended up killing him with my DPM.
I have a total of 17 games on the T-34-3 so far and am running a WN8 of just under 1100 and a 52% WR. Thats a good start but I am capabile of a WN8 of more like 1400+ and 54% WR once I get my sea-legs.....I hope!
