I finally graduated to the T54. I'm now finding the transition from the T44 to T54 equally difficult as the T43 to T44 transition. The T54 doesn't feel as quick to accelerate or traverse as the T44. And it doesn't seem to bounce off shots as readily either. Any tips on the transition? I am thinking that I may have to play more conservatively. Thanks for the assistance.

 

Never judge a tank when it's stock, as it will only ever be a shadow of its best version. The maxed T-54 is an absolute monster; it's the fastest of ALL Russian mediums (yes, even the Tier 10s), with armor that's actually quite good against lower tiers, and 330 HEAT pen for the heck of it.

 

There's a reason the T-54 is considered the seal clubber's tank of choice for Tier 9. Do not give up on it, the T-54 is borderline overpowered when played right.

T43 starts the trend of good armor on the Russian meds. That continues on through the t44, t54, object, and the turret of the t62. Ruski meds are the staple medium for all players and almost everyone has the t54, making it that much harder to truly stand out in it. Great tank though.

Just another demo account, nothing to see here

I had enough free XP to upgrade short of the tracks. Won first 3 of 4, now lost 5 straight.

Tracks increase terrain resistance as well as traverse. Be patient! When you get the T-54 fully maxed, crew and module-wise, you'll learn why it's considered a seal clubbing machine.

I'm trying my best ... now 4-8. I'm not very good, but half of the losses were caused by horrible match making. Too many tanks scoring no hits at all. And I'm not good enough to carry a team in Tier IX battles.

Should I perhaps sit back and not attempt to flank so much. Play it like a sniper with opportunistic flanking?

My first 40 games I was at 80% win rate and two Masteries in the first 20 games.  I was Oh My!  But since, I have fallen sharply. 1.3 damage ratio and almost same kill ratio just isn't enough to win now. Recently platooned and went 1-7. I'm frustrated with high early expectations. I'm at 56% in 96 games.

Painful!! After 15 matches, win rate at 25%. Getting so bad that I made a rookie mistake of driving off the hill in Mines too fast and losing my remaining 300 hit points, and costing us the battle.

Hang in there! I'm in the T-44 currently and I was in the same boat you were in. Look for another grind and keep the T-54 in the garage and pull it out every once in a while or free exp it if it gets that bad. I made the mistake of selling my 7/1 in a fit or rage, never sell a top tier medium, especially a good one.

I'm trying to hang in there. After 33 matches, my WR is 30%. I can't catch a break at all. Either I play poorly or I end up in a team where everyone else plays poorly. Tank is fully upgraded now and still have not done much better. I guess my skill level is suited to tiers 8 and lower. Sigh .... Yeah, I better go grind the 122mm for the T44.

Aaaaargh!! Matchmaking totally hates my T54!!! In 9 of every 10 battles, I'm getting the worst teammates possible. I feel like I should just start camping and waiting for the team to do something before I risk myself.

It's already bad enough that I'm having a hard time adjusting to tier 9 and 10 battles. But having bad teammates is killing me!!

I've come to the conclusion that my skills are not good enough for Tier X battles. I'd like to blame my failing eyesight and aging dexterity!  :playing:

 

Anyone has good tips that can help me consistently contribute to team victory while using the T54? I only seem to win if I am in a really good team, which is 1 out of every 6 matches I play in the T54. Or if I have a very good game, which is about 1 out of every 10 games.
