Does anyone here enjoy playing the T23e3?

 

I’m thinking about buying it, but doubtful because it looks like its a comet but without the troll mantlet and with a great reverse speed lol.

Make sure your worst enemy doesn't live between your own two ears

When you face one, are you scared of it in any way? My one as nice a drive as it is just needs time on target to do the job, people know they can get rid of something else before worrying about you, and that armour is so close to a borsig in similarity, but a conservative driverwill do great things with it. I’m personally keen on the t26e4.massive difference in armour

Nah. At tier VII the only thing going for it compared to the comet is high speed reverse.

I have this tank on my second account and like it a lot. It is quite manueverable and has a really nice gun. But If you were choose between this and its older brother T26E4, get the latter. It has better credit making capabilities and the armour and gun are far superior.

I really enjoyed playing with it, the gun accuracy, gun depression and rof is great. When you're low tier the pen is kinda meh and it doesn't have any armor.

Don't trade your hp and don't yolo and it should be fine.

I would choose comet over that laughable tank any day. Comet's turret actually has a trollish armor so if you hulldown with it and peek-a-boo, you will bounce off a surprising amount. T23e3? no it's just butter

Much as I don't want to pass judgement on other tanks, especially the ones I haven't tried out yet, I can't help but smile whenever I see this MT on the opposing team and I am in a Panther, knowing that I can use and abuse my better gun to win at long-range shoot outs and ram the hell out of it at close quarters. And if I have a Comet teammate that beat me to it first? I often let that teammate have him for himself and focus my fire on other opponents knowing that that teammate is more than enough for the T23E3

Based on my encounters with it so far, it looks like the American version of the Challenger.

That being said, a few well driven ones have made me spend too much time on them that I forgot to help my team and resulted in a loss.

DON'T BUY IT. Just draw it for free from the free Huge Containers every week? I got mine that way. It's really not a tank worth spending $$ on. 

 

Whoever said that the T23E3 was accurate must be kidding.

This tank has good DPM and if left alone, can bore holes in enemy tanks. BUT YOU MUST REALLY AIM. Low pen values will cause you to even miss shots on enemy side armors, especially if you are undertier.

Bare the occasional bounce on the gun mantlet, be prepared to have every shot penetrate you...


The above average reverse speed does allow it to bait shots well while giving out that high rate of fire. A good player should easily be able to get 60%+ WR on it, but it pales in comparison to other tanks really. It's my least favourite tank of the premiums I own.  And what's worse is that it is placed in TIER 7, where all the OP premiums are (Smasher, Drac, Helsing, Lupus)...
