Is the FCM 50t worth it or should I go for gold?    I can probably get this since they extended the contest. But is it worth it or should I go for 500 gold?

Fcm is fun, but not competitive. Its a medium version of the kv5, very heavy but suprisingly mobile, which makes for amazing ramming ability. Armor is only enough to bounce tier 7s, the gun is great and its pretty smooth for how large the tank is, I'd get it.

I'd pass - it is as big as a battle ship - lacks in armor - Gun is ok.   You can ram stuff - but still - the tank is just way to big to be successful (in my hands anyway) as a medium.

 

I wish I had never purchased mine.

 

 

Peace-

I’ve noticed a strong lack of Spare Parts. Is that intended?

No, it is not. This problem will solve itself with time. Many players have several dozens of vehicles in their Garages, so they don’t have enough Spare Parts for the entire vehicle fleet. But you will gradually collect enough Spare Parts to unlock new slots for purchased tanks in time.

it is a very big garage decoration. Bottom of the barrel if you ask me. Just about any other tier 8 med is way better. Save your gold for something good. I play my T-34-3 much more often than this. That is a statement.

You say that as if the t-34-3 is a bad tank

I enjoy the tank, but it is far from the top of the tier. So in many aspects it is a bad tank. Its different and fun, but performance is lacking in the current armor-crazy-heavy-dominated tier 8. Some of the heavys can actually keep up with it as well as traverse fast enough to prevent being circled. Yes I think it is a bad tank in the current meta. But not nearly as bad as the FCM.

I'll chime in with just a regular-joe player viewpoint. I've logged about 350 battles in it and have enjoyed most of them, running better in it than my overall trend. It isn't competitive against skilled players, but the front angled plate bounces pretty darn well against any poorly driven reds you face. It accelerates nicely and the gun depression lets you peek from strong positions; you can often out-spot and surprise lights with its jump off the line. The gun is fast, punchy and accurate. You'll absolutely need to drive a bunch of battles in it to get used to the sizing, but as you learn where to place the tank it won't seem quite as big to ya. The credit earning is legit.

 

Having said all that, I haven't driven it since August, and only rolled it out for multiple games a handful of times in 2019, and you better believe that the advent of the WZ-Fake, Smasher and OBJ have made it a dicier drive.
