   Hey, just bought the T28 after grinding so far from hellkitty and now here. In my personal experience, it has been good. Good armor and gun, but not so much speed. Was it worth the grind here? Suggestions are much appreciated.

 

Note: this was my first line grinding after starting March

I though it was, but get used to slow moving, the next are all that. For your first line though the German and Russian TDs are an easier play in general, China and Japan are pretty good too.

I don't like running TDs to begin with, so take what I say with a grain of salt, but it is one of my least favorite tanks. The last week or so I was running it almost constantly in Gravity mode just so I don't have to grind for the T95 so much.

 

Having run a bunch of Soviet TDs of late, too, I will say this, the gun is pretty accurate, which I like. I put all of the emphasis on pen, rather than rof, which helps, too, I think. 

 

I accidentally played it in a pub match last night because I didn't realize the Gravity Event had ended. Man, is it ever slow.

 

Good luck with it!

I looked at your account and don’t see you having the T28 proto and not the T28.  Is your T28 on an alternative account?
 

To answer the title question is the tank overrated?  That assumes its reputation is better than its performance.  That’s not the case.  It’s a mediocre (I’d say poor) tank limited by its mobility.  It doesn’t have a great reputation so it’s definitely not overrated.  I’d say the t28 is a bad grind, the t95 is not much better, but the 110e3 is a very good tank.


However, seeing as you have a 31% WR in the T28 proto, and 600 average damage, unless you’ve improved significantly in your alt account, I’d strongly suggest you stay at tier 6 and below.  You are are currently a burden to your teammates who have to carry you for wins.  You may end up catching a lot of grief with players frustrated with your play.  Surf the forums and look at the player guides.  You’ll be ready for the higher tiers before you know it.  So grind those lower tier tank lines first.
 

Welcome to the forums.

T28 is bad compared to other tier 8 tanks. It's slow and has poor mobility, and the armor is completely negated by gold rounds. I think it has access to special consumables (improved engine boost) so that should help with the mobility for a bit.

Overrated?  No.  The T28's reputation is terrible, and the tank itself is terrible.  It has a nice gun, sure - but everything else about the tank is pretty garbage.  I was lucky enough to grind it out during the Gravity event just now with x5s, and even then I thought it was pretty tough to get through.  As bob_000 said above, the only redeeming quality about the tank is its access to the "improved engine boost" consumable.

   Thanks for all your feedback! Vacazion, I did mean underrated not overrated. This is my first line since starting in March.

Perhaps a smidge underrated when you consider the new engine power boost which is a must on this tank.  Personally, I would have  spammed this tank during Gravity Force to grind the XP to the T95.

T28 is outclassed now.  The best thing to do with a T28 now is to free exp your way past it, and never let it contaminate your garage.

T28 is trash. Slow mobility isn't really a problem, it's the frontal armor.

Must. Have. 60%. Winrate. Under. 0.5%. Platoon. Rate!!! (30 day)

I've been gone for a year or so but I grinded the entire tank in Uprising. Run it with premium time and some boosters. Piece of cake.
