T-34/100: All the 'Meh'

Recommended Posts

Really enjoyed playing Tiers 4, 5, and 6 of the Czech line. But this thing... Could be worse, but this kind of tank really sucks the fun out of the game for me.

I think a tank has to have at least one noticeable attribute to justify less than 6 degrees of gun depression. The T-34/100 doesn't.

At least the module grind seems short and sweet: tracks then gun. I question the value of the rest? 

Edit: the value of the rest. Bought the top turret and engine in a desperate attempt to make the handling less turd like. 0.6 extra h.p./t means you'll sometimes crack 50kph and even reach the top speed of 54kph instead of barely reaching 49kph. But the improvement is marginal to say the least.

Top turret is an unfortunately necessary exp diversion. Turret turning is so slow with the stock turret I found it hard to even track moving targets. It's still poor with the top turret. But it also comes with improvements to reload, aim time, and dispersion when moving the turret, making it a must.

Currently grinding through this thing. It's pretty meh. Tanks like the T20, Panther, and T-43 were so much better for me.

I'm currently using vents, rammer, and egld but feel like more vision would better. Should I swap the vents or the egld for optics?

Swap vents.

Any you are kinda lucky to grind 347100, since there are far worse tier 7 tanks.

This. Just one word:

Ikv 90 Typ B

Finished grinding this... thing. Just so meh. It has nice alpha but it doesn't make up for all its other deficiencies like terrible gun handling, no gun depression, lackluster mobility. Just a very forgettable tank for me. I much more prefer the T-43, T20, and Panther. All those tanks clicked with me much much more. I even managed to three-mark the T20.

Ammo loadout?

I suggest 12/15/3

it is easier to run out of ammo than you think (like 4 min of firing). May sound like goldspam, but you wanna take advantage of penetration, and fight as much heavies as you can (from 2nd or 3rd line, of course). They are easier to hit with derpy gun, move slower, are bigger...and less likely to hit you back if you wait for them to be on reload. Also, they win most games in pubs if they manage to force a push, so playing a support TD role is the best way.

You can take just one HE shell if you want more AP, but 12 HEAT is essential to boost your WR, since bad DPM means you have to make your shots count (and killing Comets is worthless anyway)

Yeah, once I stared playing this like a gimped hedium I had some okay games towards the end of the grind. Still can't face the tier 8...

This tank is just so typical for tier 7. At tier 6 I can have (on the VK P) 220 alpha with, admittedly, shitty gun handling but good dpm, gun depression and some turret armor that allows for actually sitting and aiming for a bit. Then I get an upgrade at tier 7 to 250 alpha, but for some reason going up a tier isnt enough to balance that alpha increase so I have, even worse gun handling, less dpm, no gun depression and no armor whatsoever. And a tier higher I get 50% more alpha + 30% better gun handling + vstabs because WG knows how to balance their game...

I strongly disagree, the Ikv is actually kinda fun to play because it has something going for it, fast, gun depression and crazy camo. Sure, the aim time is completely unnecessary, but I am still pulling more dpg than in the /100

This tank is fucking garbage lmao

If it's gonna be this slow it could use an armor buff or a gun accuracy buff.  I don't even care about the pen, I can work with 175mm pen at tier 7.

 

But for fuck's sake there's literally zero reason for this to have the armor, speed, and size of a barn and a derpy as fuck gun

Its not the worst tier 7 MT (T-43 will forever hold that spot in my heart)

Gun is a capable damage dealer. It could certainly use a speed buff, and the -5 depression is depressing. 12 battles in (not elite yet) averaging 1669 DPG which isnt bad for a tier 7 med (I expect Carbon to do 2.9k, but I digress). It REALLY needs a good crew. Glad Im training essentially two crews now as I intend to keep the tier 9 and 10. 

Others thoughts?

Again, mine is "Meh. Ive had better, but DAMN Ive had worse"

<ahem>

Panther, hmmm?

Can't be that bad, if I can do that without platooning in it:

Don't ask me how, it just makes no kind of sense.

It's largely crap.  All it has are pen and accuracy.  Armor is crap, top speed is fine but no faster than other meds, and acceleration and turning are heavy-ish.  Bad camo, etc.

Not a good tank.  Alpha and DPM are crap as well.

Panther > T 34/100 >>>>>>>>>>>>>> T-43

It’s been a while since I played the T-43, but I don’t offhand remember it being painful.  I’d have to play it again, but it seems like I remember it playing a bit like a 34-85 once elited.

The Panther is just a fast heavy with a crap gun and weak armor.  Or - more realistically - a sluggish medium with bad DPM.

So, with a bunch of blueprints from this year's Christmas event, and given this is the last nation where I have not completed grinding at least one line through to tier 10 (well, this nation only has one line, but hey)... I decided to drop a lot of blueprints and free XP, which meant I start the journey at this thing.

Big mistake, given the tier 5 and tier 6 look kind of fund to play (I guess I'll go back to them someday).

In late 2019, this thing is just...frustrating mediocre to bad. It's basically a tier 6 tank with a tier 7.5 gun (kind of feels like a stock tier 8 medium tank gun). The gun is good for the tier, with decent penetration and good alpha, but the handling is really, really bad. The platform itself suffers heavily given it is basically a tier 6: no armour worth speaking about, it's big and doesn't handle very well (you need the elite engine to even feel like a medium tank). Lack of gun depression compared to many of its peers also means it is not very flexible.

30 games, given I have enough blueprints to unlock the tier 8 straight away as well. A flat 50% win-rate, 947 DP (with about 340 average assist).

I see a few comparisons to the T-43, which isn't a bad one given that is also basically a tier 6 platform a tier higher. To me they are in completely different ballparks. For the T-43, with just 45 games (so a very similar sample size) I had 57.78% win rate, 1,288 DPG with about 398 assist. No comparison, the T-43 is just flat out better - it has far better mobility and while it's gun is a lot worse, the better mobility and smaller size lets it flank and utilise it's gun much better.
