Max any hints on what to grind to get the most out of it?  Any free tanks (I can always hope)?  Any chance that my T-44 will morph into a T-54 to save me the grind?  Thanks.

it's a second branch coming from the T-34. T-34->A-43->A-44->object 416->???????->object430. I do wonder what the tier 9 will be...

While I liked my T43 I sold my T44. Just not fun enough to loose credits every match.  In fact I am loath to go above Teir VII.  I enjoy my Black Prince, Jagdpanther, and Tiger I too much, AND I can still make credits with them.

Thanks.  Now I have to decide if I want to go up that line just to say I did.  I am curious how different the A-43, 44 is from the T-43 44.  Wouldn't they be almost the same?  [For the record -This statement is made without research and is not a complaint or a dis on soviet tanks.]

Try T29, it's like a BP with a better turret, a much better gun and worse hull (albeit more mobile)

Tier 5 T-34, not tier 6 T-34-85.

 

Best weapon for T-34-85 was always long 85mm. :)

I prefered the100mm over the long 85mm for the better peneration and damage it can do.

I did not like it for horrible aim time and low DPM - back then, when you met 3601 up close with 100mm you died, with 85mm you had slight chance due the better DPM.

 

BTW, hear people are crying that KV-13 is underpowered... Mind boggling.

so, new german heavy - DW, 36.01 becomes a heavy, 30.01H drops to tier 5 AND becomes a heavy, new tier 6 medium (VK30.02M).

I do wonder how the 30.01H rebalance will be done. BDR redux?

I am hoping if you have the right tanks a free one will be given.  I love getting free tanks.

There's nothing to show, either in-game or from stat sites like vbaddict, that that's not the case.  For example it has the same gun as the T-43 but lower dpm and I'm going to guess it has worse mobility (heavier with lower tier engine... but you can't know without testing everything in game).

- there will be German rebalance in 8.8 too
- Tiger I will be changed in 8.8
- both Tigers will get maximum speed buff in 8.8

Those three changes have me the most curious for 8.8.  The Acc/camo changes were initially labeled a rebalancing of the game (which is true, but not in the way I was expecting) so who knows what this ultimately will translate into.

 

Edit: The more I think about it the 'rebalance' mentioned above could simply be the 30.01 move, the Panther prototype, and the changes to the Tigers.  I'm really hoping it's more than that.  So much of the tree is just weak, has been since launch, and could really use some love.

RU patchnotes were leaked, if in a defeat you get a medal, you will get the same bonuses as victory. This is the biggest change in this patch IMO.

Err... so what is Object 140 historically?  Is it an improved T-55 or what?

 

 

Also, Object 416 looks pretty dangerous.  Armor looks very bouncy, sidescrape is possible, and the initial leaked alpha stats show it having more firepower than a T32.
