Guys, i will be grinding through the T28 prototype soon to get the T30 and the T110e4.

 

I've heard mixed reviews of the proto, but mostly bad.

 

Any tips on playing it and grinding it?

That thing is a beast. Use your gun depression and fast reload to your advantage.

pro: penetration matches tier 9 heavy. DPM is better than any tier 9 heavy. Front armor is semi-reliable against tier 8. not very prone to circling.

 

con: you gotta make it to the battlefield tho :trollface:

slow moving beast..... well, at least faster the T95 and T28

and much more versatile than those two because of turret and gun depression (t95 and t28 around 6 I think). I enjoyed the proto but my experience in non-turret t28 is horrible

Best turreted gun in tier 8

Turret is awful so don't stand still

And side armor is weak, don't let enemy get your side

Good depression to abuse terrain

But again, it has poor speed (hope you don't leftout)

Do not peek a boom, it is that slow that if you try to peek, enemies will have full 2 seconds to load HE and hurt your sides badly. I once get oneshotted from full to 100 hp left by an ISU loading HE because i tried to peek a boom

Hulldown fighting and brawling in a corridor is where it works for me, chasing after a med/light? You should just cap

Also, at stock it is painful with the gun being unable to deal with tier 8 heavies front reliably without apcr

In PC it has a reputation for its speed. It can't get anywhere. In Blitz the maps are samller. Shouldn't be as big as a problem. The medium and BIAS-(insert number) fest hurt it though. It juat can't keep up or outtrade them.

Sniping and ambushing was my technique. It's slow so giving careful thought to positioning is important. It's very difficult to relocate so whilst a corner of a map (dead rail map) looks attractive it has the risk of rendering you impotent in the battle. Choosing where to go at the start and moving there straight away is essential. Dissuade your team from the whole team flanking the map that often happens. If they dont run into the opfor don't keep circling, you'll be left behind and slaughtered alone - always remind your team on chat that you don't have the legs for that play.
Try to stay above and facing the opfor as HE through your open turret or through your rear is an autopen for full damage by almost any other tank.
Stick with someone else always. You'll be readily CODed if in an open space so keep near obstructions.

On the upside you have excellent pen, ROF and trollish armour. I'm not sure on the camo stats but I felt they were decent.

I had some really enjoyable games in the t28 proto and also some pointless disappointments (usually when whole team has abandoned you). Overall a decent experience - but not one that I will likely drive again - in fact I sold it - which I usually don't do for tier 8s.

I've also had some very enjoyable games with the t28 proto, in different games I have out brawled a T54 and a T44 1v1, I did have the advantage of being on slightly higher ground with some cover (same position on  the map both times, the old Black Goldville) and the opponents were probably more noobish than me and didn't realise I had a turret that had a limited degree of traverse. Then there were games from hell where you got left on you lonesome and got obliterated. I haven't played it for a while now but have kept it in the garage for a rainy day.

Does the proto have enough agility / power to get to hilltop sniping spots?

It can get to hilltop in record breaking speed of 8km/h climbing, so i wouldnt try to climb stuffs with it unless i know i can safely get up and leave the position safely

Shoot at red tanks. Works 100% every time 50% of the time for me.

Sounds a lot like Sex Panther - 60% of the time it works every time.

I enjoyed the Proto, although I did the grind when it was first released, so with buffs or nerfs and the +/-1 nonsense, it might be a different beast to play.  I have fond memories fluffing a Ras in the Proto by misjudging a T29 reload time. #noob.

 

I think with the +/-1 it is going to be easier to play. I used to push as fast as I could, as the turret made it more flexible than the T28. Proto is bouncy enough. Save free xp to upgrade turret and gun before grinding. Play daily on x2 multipliers to reduce battles.

Thanks for all the advice.

 

I'm nearly 100 games into the grind.  I am not enjoying it because it is so slow and limited in its ability to make an impact.  Its very difficult to be consistent.

 

The gun is good though.

The gun's accuracy is a joke that it pens 50% of the time even with fully aimed AP shots
