The Poles and East Germany can get T-34/85s.

As others threads say, don't try to face the blob of tanks, use hit & run tactics, specially with heli and cheap infantry. T-35 has very low stat, i think you can even destroy them with mortar carriers like M106A1

I've managed to destroy T-34s with Marders. Marders have no other weapons than a 20mm Autocannon.

The devs don't need to "fix" anything, T-34s in this period are slow moving and have worse combat capability than IFVs. Just counter smart. A single heli with a rocket salvo will wreck several, basic infantry will insta-kill them with grenades, artillery with annihilate them, ATGM packs can kite them. Hell AA will probably beat a T-34 at close range.

The only issue is if you use slow-firing high-damage units to counter them, an Abram's awesome shell is wasted on something a Leopard 1A1 can blow to peices. For the cost of one Abrams they can deploy 10 T-34s. You fire say once every 5 seconds that will be 50 seconds of firing to destroy them all assuming 100% accuracy. If instead you have a group of medium tanks, still destroying the enemy in one hit but now firing 5 times every 5 seconds you wipe the enemy out in two salvos.

Its all about adapting to the enemy, not using the same tactic whether facing T-34s or T-80Us.

I've actually seen a group of 4 Marder Is destroy like 24 T-34s. Sure, the Marders were waiting in ambush, but still.

Yes, a swarm of Motorstrelci/Vysadkari well deployed is far more dangerous, or T-55AM/T-62 with a player not too stupid.

I assume by the thread title the t/85 rusher was a W.T.F "clan" (and I use the term clan loosely) memeber? I have a simple counter to that type spam tactics...when I see WTF tags in the lobby I join a different game. Its really easy actually. They all do it so unless u enjoy faceing 200 little apcs and 100 little helos while dodgeing cross map missle spam, go else where...each thier own eh?

When ever u encounter such a player just remeber the name and don`t play with him again. There are lots of adults on the servers so is really not a problem. You will have friends to play with soon enough if you are polite and play fairly well, most are freindly here. Then no more pugs for kiddies to ruin eh?

P.S. pre-emptive strike here, YES I know "good" players can counter spammers....point is why should we need to waste our time doing so? I think its a big part of the reason this game has been so slow to get going....because other than that its a great game.

Thank you WB. I guess I haven't run across the WTF guys yet. I try to avoid 8 player MP games because of some people (clans?) or whatever seem to get together and snipe unsuspecting n00bs which really hurts the game. I've been fortunate to play some fairly good 4 & 6 player battles with peeps who conduct themselves with a reasonable amount of dignity for the GAME! Sure, you'll get Helo swarmed and Smerched a lot but that's just part of the game. Also, try to get in on some Alamo or Last Stand battles where you can rack up some stars. Avoid the 4 player Highway to Hell 6000 pt games as it usually turns into a couple of spam buddies out to pick you off. I've tried a few Ranked games as well, that's always interesting. You never know what map it will be and what rank the opposing player is until the game starts. But, you get points.
NEVER, EVER quit a game in progress!
