Wish I could say I enjoy it.  My win rate is decent in it, but my Star1 is bad, and I haven't figured out how to increase it.

 

It's a very good tank, but I think the pool simply is a deep one.  It's got the highest Tier 8 WR @ 56.91% of any tank not named Fearless, and the highest, by far, medium average damage in Tier 8 (1,460).  Hell, it averages more damage than the Tier 9 T-54 (1,402).  In short, you gotta have some hellatious good numbers in Tier 8 to get a good Star 1 in it.

 

Hope they go on sale, and a bunch of noobs buy it, because with the current population this one is going to be tough for the average to above average player to do well in statistically.

If you thought the pre-nerf T-54 and T-62A were overpowered Soviet trash, this only amplifies it. One of the strongest medium hulls in the entire game. Best side armor of all mediums in the game. In tier 8. It's absurd. Gun and mobility are meh, but with that armor, you'll get the job done. Gun depression is bad and turret armor is also meh, but you can sidescrape and angle dat hull and get bounces for days.

 

I'm surprised it's come back so early. It's only been about 4 months since its first release. https://wotblitz.com...irst-prototype/

Hmmm, so you're suggesting I start recommending the tank to the bad players I see in game?  ;)

It's a premium, no amount of unicum stat-padding will make WG nerf it.

 

On the other hand, if bad players ruin the tank's stats, it could get buffed if WG are really stupid...

If you don't have the Type 59, I would spend the dough to get it.  I like a medium with some armor to it, but the trade off will always be the quickness.  Just ask the SuperPershing...

 

Good luck!

At least the Super Pershing can beat up tanks of the same tier


much yummy :popcorn:

It's fantastic.  The armor is lights out.  And it's amplified by a ridiculous ability to traverse, which is the best that I know of, at least it feels that way when you play it.  You can sit and swivel like a nut and stuff bounces.  The sluggishness can be offset by fuel which is affordable.

 

And the best feature is the credit ratio.  I'm not sure what it is relative to other premiums, but with premium I can earn over $100k.  And I'm an average tanker.

Star1 is 45% based on DMG. So....do more DMG!

The traverse is indeed quite good. Typical Soviet medium.

The credit coefficient is something like 180%. It's really good, about IS-6 level, but a bit short of the Lowe and Super Pershing.

Eh that's debatable with all the new ones that have come out.  I feel like I am driving an RV with peashooter these days when I take the SPershing for a stroll.  A few months it felt like a beast...these days...like a [edited]willow being grabbed from the front.

It has a bad gun, which means it is a bad tank.

My prem time ends in a few days and I was about to buy the 30days/6k gold bundle... Since you get 30 days and 2.5k gold in this, it's like paying $11 and 3.5k gold for this tank. Worth it? Mixed reviews in this thread.

The gun good.  I'm not sure what you think is bad about it.

I bought it and proceeded to beat the ever loving piss out of every single tank I faced. I regret not buying it the first time it came out.

The thing can only pump out so many rounds before my team evaporates...that plus it takes a while to get into position, due to the speed.

 

I need remedial training on how to do more damage.  This is an area I seem deficient in, across many of my tanks.

It is a fantastic tank! I think of it as a medium version of the IS-6. Good armor, ok gun, ok mobility, strong turret and great credits. It's pretty hard to beat!

Just a better version of a type 59 but cheaper.

It's the most OP tier 8 medium in the game.

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.

The tank is a better type 59, 240mm vs 206 effective armor on the upper frontal glacis, more or less similar gun, less gun depression but if you are familiar with russian meds, that shouldn't be a problem, and you can pen his frontal armor, while the type 59 can't pen you back ! So if you see one coming at you, feel free to rub it in his face. 

Tldr an ultimate seal clubber when top tier.

Honestly, the fact that they re-release this tank right after the French ones makes me quite salty, as I blew a hefty amount of money on the french bundles and the french tanks are nowhere as good as this one.
