I just bought the T30 yesterday! didn't have much to expect other than comparing it with a t34 with a 155mm gun, although I don't own a t34 ;-; . The only difference other than the gun is the tier. I'm having trouble surviving and out-putting damage. Was wondering if you guys had any tips on how to play the t30 and what equipment I should buy for it.

Do you have the top gun yet? That's when I really started putting the hurt on the reds.  Have you played the t29 or the t32? Maps that offer good hull down spots I will play like those American heavies. Just use your turret armor to your advantage and hide your weak hull armor.

Yeah I have the top gun and have played the t29 and t32. I'm just confused about positioning; do I play like a heavy or tank destroyer?

Stay hull down, that's the most important thing. Don't rush into battles, let the team go upfront, your hull is useless so being front line isn't the best option. You can side scrape decently, and the stock gun has a great ROF, use it to your advantage. The T30 has awesome gun depression, use that to peek over hills, get your shot off and keep rocking back and forth. If you do get caught with hull exposed, angle the tank abit. Like I said before hull down in this tank is important, if your hull is showing your in bad position. You can play peek a boom behind your team, try staying with heavies, use them as meat shields in a way.

Grinded tier 9 all last week, and those are the biggest pain. Turret is strong, use it

For me it really depends on the map. Some maps I know of good spots like on rock field where I can dig in and people just bounce my turret all day.  Other maps you have to definitely play a support/more cautious TD role.  Never go anywhere without support though, the king reload can cause people to rush you.

Maybe we can try my suggestion, it would eliminate the ST-1's sidescraping weakspot and the T30's weak hull.

When the line first came out "play it like it looks" was the popular saying. I dont have one but have t34 and t29. Completed the american heavy line so hull down is natural in all my tanks. A t30 hull down is gonna work over any tank in game. If you have to be on the move bound to rocks dead tanks anything that hides your hull. A big ol loss of hp is gonna change any reds mind

I have a tough time hanging back, since the T30 feels (and looks) so much like a more capable T34.  The difference between the two is the T34 will largely be ignored by tier 9 & 10 opponents, while the T30 is respected enough to be a priority for them.

 

I gotta get in my Russian TD mentality a bit for this tank, rather than my American Heavy mentality.  I think that's what my problem is.  Well that plus bad teams, which I don't have any significant control over.

I find it really hard to not play it like a heavy. I "try" to hang back just a little so that I am not the primary focus. Otherwise you are target #1. Other than that, position it just as you would a T29 and let that gun sing.

Basically that.  It's a T34 on steroids.  Play it exactly the same way you would a T29, T32, or T34.

If you're behind your team mates, be mindful of the shots your intended target is taking. It's not always best to come out immediately after you've reloaded. Wait for the enemy to take a shot, then come out. Otherwise, he's going to nail you back. 

 

The reload is so slow on the T30, think of each round as spending time. When you take a shot, you just gave up the next 15 sec of having your gun in the game. So, prioritize targets before the game starts, who are your threats, who is a threat to your team mates. This will help you make decisions quicker when it comes to crunch time.

 

Make sure you tell your team which enemy you are attacking. Often you are going take a shot, think you have the kill, but leave an enemy tank with <100hp. Having a team mate ready to finish the enemy off not only gives you greater chance of surviving, it also allows you to use your next round on another tank with more hp left. A kill + 100hp is not worth the round when there are other full health enemy tanks around.
