I don't know what it is with me and this tank, but it's not clicking very well like the T29. Anything else I should be doing other than the usual T29 tactics of hull down, sidescraping? Am I supposed to bait them into driving into my gun or should I be putting pressure on them?

Are you dying too often or are you not doing enough damage to win?

 

The overall armor is much better on the T32 than on the T29, even when talking tier-for-tier. The side turret armor is a struggle for many to get through, the cupola is very small, the front of the turret is invincible, the frontal hull armor is as good as an IS-3 (except when you take into account that the IS-3 can wiggle and throw your shots off), the lower plate is incredibly troll, and you lose the 51mm of side armor (it becomes 76mm like the rest of the side armor).

 

The only thing that the T32 is worse at compared to the T29 is the gun, having the same gun, so the penetration, while usually good enough, may require you to spam a lot of prammo and careful aiming.

 

Are you even fully upgraded?

If I dont end up being sniped across map, then it's usually having trouble dealing enough dmg since it's a 105mm that can see tier 9. Its also very often that I'm one of the last to get picked off.

Imho the T32 may be the best tier 8 heavy. At least it is in my garage. 

 

Run with the mediums sometimes. Stsy hull down and use the better-than-average gun depression work for you. Learn the best hull down map locations on each map. Go to them early. Your hull armor is decent, but will still be penned by pretty much all prammo. Keep your hull angled when in the open to maximize armor. Also, what many forget, wiggle and rock. Never EVER sit still. Did I mention hull down?  Since your alpha is relatively low, you can do well by shooting drive wheels. Your gun is very accurate, so you can hit the drive wheels from s distance. And before I forget, the most important thing to know is that you need to hull down.

One other thing, carry plenty of prammo. Use it liberally. It's not too expensive and will get you through most, but not all of armor you'll face. 

 

And if if your getting sniped from across the map it means you've picked a bad location. That goes for every tank, not just the T32.

I get sniped while on the move. I think it's locations on maps that gets me stumped. It really likes towns where I can sidescrape, The big tracks just soaking up the dmg

Despite never had i played it, The T32 is a nice tank, however the 105mm gun is inadequate for its tier and its hard fighting tier 9 heavies with it, So, my best solution is to try to get hulldown as much as possible and try to face hug tanks with no gun depression so that they are forced to shoot your near indestructible turret.

and maybe be a gold noob and load a bit of apcr, 198 pen isn't that good considering that the amx 50 100 has 220 for standard ammo

Which is how I ended up with the T34. The 120mm is what gets the job done and overall the T34 plays and clicks similar to the T29. I don't know...I know there's something I'm missing about the T32 and I won't give up on it until I figure it out. By then, I should have credits lined up for the M103 brute. So....is 10 apcr enough or should I load even more? The T29 taught me the importance of the hull down tactic and I should be using it more on the T32 then :amazed:

I stopped reading right here.  Town is the worst place for this tank.  While you CAN sidescrape, I would MUCH rather be hull down in hills or dunes.

Not particularly a good side scraper IMO. however in Middleburg yesterday I was bouncing shots left right and center from same tier meds. in the open no less (came down from the hill to mop up)

Agreed. While it can sidescrap in a pinch, it really isn't great at it. You should strive to be hull down as close to 100% of the time as is practical. Remember that you can "hull down" behind things like rocks, dead tanks, or the "porches" on Hidden Temple. Also know that a face hug is pretty powerful against some tanks. Just today I faced hugged a Tiger II. I pulled up right next to him, track to track, and rocked back and forth. He couldn't hit me for a pen, but with my gun depression, I could shoot into his hull.

Maybe your problem is that you're playing the T32 like the T29 or the T34. It's different. It's quicker and, believe it or not, has a better turret than the T34. Interestingly, the T32 has better DPM than the T34 (2170 vs 2000, fully kitted). 

 

And yeah, 10 APCR or maybe 12 (what I carry) should do you.

Exactly this is a hill heavy OP run it in the hills not the towns. Its got enough mobility to get there and be an outright force to be reckoned with against the mediums not smart enough to turn tail and flee.

Always, ALWAYS go hulldown. Turret armor is literally unpennable, even Tier IX TDs will have trouble penning you. Gun is okay for its tier, AP will go through most tier 8s reliably(IS6, IS3D excluded), you do have to spam prammo in tier 9 games. Mobility is very good for a heavy so you can run with the mediums and provide heavy firepower. Sidescraping is also very effective because your huge tracks eat a lot, and I mean A LOT of shells. Oh yeah, and facehug KV4s and KV5s, foolproof tactic and you will almost always win the engagement.

 

Good luck grinding it! The M103 is so worth it!:)

Geez,   This is my worst tank so far. I've got all the upgrades except tracks, but it is still very slow and I get left behind often. I hate spamming prammo as it never gets any credits even if I win and take out a tank (or two). Too slow for much sidescraping or rocking.  Also, I'm on a  slow connection so I think my tank is slow to respond compared to others.
