88 works better when you are not being xvm sniped. Ridge fighting in a tier 8 wet cardboard as a purple on NA west (which is infested with xvm snipers) is not that different from yoloing down middle at start of a match.

I wasn't being XVM sniped. Played it on a 56-57% acc. (TVP took care of my XVM focus) and the 88 was shit. Ended with 44% win rate.

Yeah it's as bad as you guys say it is. Been running this thing with every boost I can. Currently 49% WR. I enjoy the CDC far more, and have over 60% on it, so when I saw people making that comparison I was hoping it was actually accurate. It isn't IMO. 

Tried stock turret and top 88. Not a bad way to grind, but got bored. Now have the 105, which seems to play best with the 2nd turret. I can't decide which i like more. No wonder that one gets beaten to death. Chunky alpha and better trading versus sustained dpm, depression and gun handling - which is best depends on map, side, team deployment, comp, and personal taste. Too many variables, I'd have to compare my averages to say which one is optimal more often. Staying with the 105 for now, may do some kind of 10 game average with each, for science. 

Staying on 2nd engine to finish the grind faster. Anyone recommend the 3rd engine? Seems like I'd be polishing a turd though.

Unlocked the T9 last night; VTU is tolerable when upgraded that's about all i can say. Would skip if I had tourney gold. Never did get the 3rd engine. Even though I'm one of the people who like the 105mm more, I'd say there's a strong argument for staying with the 88 just to get through the grind faster. It's pretty meh either way, just a hair more fun to hit people with that chunky alpha if you have cover to use between reloads.

If this was my account I might do it, but this is purely for fun and I don’t care about stats. Still tank is shit, one of the worst T8 tanks.

Starting my painful trip on this tank today - Stock, running the 100mm to start, Vents/VStab/Optics, have a BiA Crew, they're 3 skilled (~90% 3rd).

Thinking Tracks > Turret > Engine(s) > 105mm? And, yes, I'm a masochist who refuses to use free exp.

The Imp Suspension module? And lose one of Vents/VStab/Optics? Why?

Till you grind engine, gun and turret. Tracks costs 15200. For this you almost get a better gun. Why suffer so much?

100mm was useable at Tier VII... 50/50 AP/HEAT seems enough for the grind, plus it is x5.

Gotten to the 105, have everything but the TVP 50 unlocked now... the tank moves much better with upgraded engines, but of mixed opinion on 88/100/105 debate...

I recognize that, but I don't want to spend any of my free exp... I'm stingy.

I've continued my power-grind through the tier 8 thanks for blueprints and Christmas bonuses plus other stuff. All I can say is thank goodness for that! 40 games as with blueprints I managed to get 72% discount on the research cost for the T50. Abysmal 45% win rate, and gutter trash DPG of 1,096 with 460 assist. For comparison, I had a better DPG in my very first tier 8 medium, the Panther II, and I have better DPG than this in 2 of my tier 7 mediums (T20 and T-43).

It basically has nothing going for it. It is huge, has zero armour, mediocre gun depression so minimising exposure is difficult, gun handling isn't great and only so-so- mobility. It doesn't get awesome DPM or penetration either, although with a decent crew and optics it can put out some decent view range numbers so at least you're not blind too.

Because I didn't play many games it's hard to judge between the top 88 or the 105 gun options. My gut feel is towards the top 88 as the gun handling is better, as is the penetration and DPM, but the alpha strike of the 105 is hard to ignore, but in both cases it's finding whatever works best for you to make your suffering a little more tolerable.

For a moment I considered playing up to 60 games to get a bit of a better feel for the tank, given all my tech-tree tier 8s have at least 90 games in them, but after the last couple of games I realised that I already knew that it's an awful tank and that I hate it so decided to sell it and move on...plus I need those Christmas boosters etc. for the stock T50 grind!

You'll love the T50. The top gun is so much damn fun

The TVP is kind of a case of like the RHM has you want the alpha gun for City fights and the 88 for medium and long-range engagements. Depends on your play and how you like your tanks. The stock turret is a must however.
