I just got the T32 yesterday, and I’ve played a couple dozen games in the thing.

 

And...

 

This tank is bad. Really, really bad. Everything it does is just...slow. The turret traverse is slow (fair enough in this case), the hull traverse is slow, unless  you don’t have the suspension upgrade, in which case it is absolutely glacial. The aim time is so, so bloody slow. The reload is...given the fact it’s a Tier VII heavy tank gun on a Tier VIII, slow.

 

Is there anything good about it? Well...the turret armor is beastly if you can actually

manage to get somewhere good to use it. And it isn’t that appallingly bad in a straight line. The penetration is...passable. You know this tank is bad when I can safely say the Tiger II actually doesn’t look mediocre next to this tank.

 

Whats up with this thing? It needs some kind of gun buff, maybe even a whole new gun. 198 standard pen and 310 alpha? On a Tier VIII heavy? With the friggin aim time and accuracy it has? This tank has next to no relevance when compared to the T34, M6A2E1 EXP, and Lowe. You might as well go hulldown in them, the 298mm of turret armor is unnecessary, and you’ll probably do better in every other scenario.

Hulldown and ridge work are the only proper ways to play this tank. Anywhere else makes it easy pickings 

I may have a few too many tanks. I think I was over 150 in garage by last count.

fly over tank I call that; disappointment after the T29 and one that will be sold after the next tank is full researched.

I am far from good in tier 8 but this tank did not perform at all and I used certificate from last event to free up the M103.

You're playing it wrong. this is one of my favorite all time tanks. The turret armor is near invincible, which combined with gun depression, makes it a force to reckoned with. The armor is surprisingly bouncy, and the gun can out dpm most other heavies. It's also fairly mobile when maxed.

Just expect your armor to be softer than french light tank armor and going hulldown and you'll be golden. It's a decent tank from what i've seen on the field, like decent average. Nothing exceptional with this except for going hulldown in it tbh.

Also the fact Wargaming told their devs to nerf premium ammo damage to entire tanks in the game made T32 worse than it was back in 2016 haha. The only good thing about T32 is titanium front turret, better front hull armor than Pershing, and good gun depression, that’s it and the rest of it is useless.

Tier 8 for the American tanks is pretty awkward all around.. The T29 with its nigh invulnerable turret sets you up for disappointment with the more maneuverable T32.

I personally couldn't get it to work for me.

I hated grinding that tank. I mean I REALLY hated it. BUT! Toward the end of the grind with full upgrades and crew I started getting a feel for it. It is like the Chinese version of the T34. Very similar, but never as good.

Adding onto my general comment earlier, I think the reason people don't do well is because they don't play aggressively enough. This isn't a tank where you camp with the turret. You get up front, as close to the enemy as possible, and hulldown. Pound some shots into them with your invincible turret, and when they start to break, you push on them. Believe it or not, you can get some troll bounces on the hull, wiggling with those wide tracks. It also plays peekaboo pretty well, with the sloped hull 300+mm effective at a near perpendicular angle.

The gun is its weakness. 198 mm of pen on a tier 8 heavy is a joke and its not like you can hit weak spots, its aim time and dispersion are nothing to write home about. Its a good heavy with a crappy gun.

Obviously, you dont understand the vehicle because the T32's turret is comparable to the IS-7's while the T29 is just decent comparable to the tier.

 

The T32 is an average tier 8 heavy that relies on its superior turret armor and good enough to hull to whittle down opponents with good ammo selection.

T32 was quite a good tank for me when i played it. Just be thankful your not playing the Pershing, it's just a much worse T32.

The difference between the T32 when hull-down and the T34, Lowe, and M6A2E1 EXP is that all of them can be penned with good aim and good RNG. The T32's turret, to my knowledge, is literally invincible to the guns it'll face.

 

Doesn't make up for the other mediocre aspects though.

The T29's turret is godlike. Yes there is a hatch, so what? that just keeps the armor from being thoroughly OP at tier 7. The T30 has the same turret at Tier 9, and it is an excellent Tier 9 TD.

You may be correct. Ill have to buy it again. In my experience the T29 just works better hull down. The same with the T34 and the T30. I never had a problem getting any of those to work, where the T32 seems to be alot more penable and the gun for its tier is very meh.

for its tier, T32 turret is far superior than T29s. And while T30 is an excellent TD, that turret is barely adequate for tier 9. For example the standard 183 AP easily goes through its cheeks frontally. .

It was good in the old meta, which was "never town". Now the new meta is "always town" So it's all about front armor and no gun depression.

DMG made a post about how OP the tank was recently.

Other than that, t32 feels like a buffed t34 with a worse gun but way better armor
