Pershing

Recommended Posts

Thread necro!

I've just finished grinding through the Pershing in late 2019. 175 games with a 51.43% win rate, 1,290 damage per game with about 600 assist. I ground it out pretty much entirely from stock.

So, for an average-ish player, it's... pretty meh. In an day and age where standard 240 alpha mediums are well and truly power-crept, the Pershing is just lacking something. While it doesn't particularly suck in any one particular area, it doesn't excel in any particular area either, which leaves it middling. Gun handling is okay, although not brilliant (although common for the class and tier). Penetration on standard rounds is okay, although the gold round is very good (it's damned expensive though). DPM is mediocre, especially when you compare it to things like the Swedish medium line and the Italian auto-reloaders. It's a pretty big medium, so it can't hide as effectively as a T-44 (it's main competition as an all-rounder medium in the tier). Armour is useless on the hull and the turret only occasionally against lower tiers (unlike say the Cent). Mobility is okay, not outstanding.

So yeah, just an average package. Not awful but in the current environment, nothing special. There are far more interesting options in the class and tier in this day and age. Was happy to move on.

The sad thing is that the entire American tree has pretty much been powercreeped. There are like 5 tanks worth grinding for in all: T29, T30, T49, E3? and T92 (yes T92).

T95. it's so good at carrying after the speed buff.

 

Also T30 is meh also now. 

 

Pershing would be better even if all they did is buffed the shell speed.
