I have been grinding out the Czech line for a while now and have found only a little enjoyment from the Tier 6 Medium.  Really wanted to play other countries tanks when trying to advance this line. However, I unlocked the final package for the Tier 9 T-50 and I love playing it.  The tank works really well through out the game and if you can catch a tank engaged or looking the wrong way it really can deliver some damage very quickly.  As the battlefield shrinks the T-50 really becomes a beast with its agility and 3 round clip.  As long as you have a safe place to reload from and do not get trapped by reds you can dominate the battle.  Love it.

Make sure to use the "Reloading!" command on the communication radial. Otherwise, you'll end up with teammates accusing you of just watching them die as they leap into the jaws of death.

It’s a monster.

Probably true. I kept mine now that I have the 10. Just sucks because I don't have another good crew for the 9, so it makes it tough to run.

Why exactly? Just curious. I feel like it is 1 of the easiest autoloaders in the game, to play.

Just unlocked and purchased the Skoda T50 this past weekend. Played four matches in it so far and I like it enough even stock that I don't think I will be using any free XP on it. And yes, three of the Matches were Tier X so I got to see how it handles the big boys. Need to really look for those weak spots. Looking forward to the final package though.

Well, like Roy I just unlocked this and it is a night and day experience compared to the TVP. I am not missing shots, I am able to bounce them, I am reasonably mobile and even the stock the gun isn't at all bad, the 0.37 seems a world apart from the 0.4 on the TVP.

I suspect I will get along well with this tank, especially when it gets its 1000hp engine...

Is the final package the only autoloader I take it?

Yep. And it is amazing.

One thing that make this tank not that good, its 3 round clip.

Why in the world would there be autoloaders with 4 to 6 round clips, and some others are equiped with only 3 round clips ?

Why do a T50/51 wich has the same tuuert has 4 round ?

Why a Bat-Chat 25t has 5 round clip while an AMX 13 105 wich shares the same gun has only 3 rounds ?

Where is the logic here ?

 

Don't even try to answer there is absolute 0 logic here, it's just randomness.

3 riund clip makes this tank just pretty good, with 4 round it would not even be OP, just a good medium tank.

3 round clip is too short in almost all engagements, meaning you hit three times then you have to run away or hide, no matter wich tank we talk about, 3 round is never enough to be a threat to ennemies, i almost never felt in danger when attacked by an AMX 13 105 unless my health was low…. how brilliant is that.

Revert back 4 round clips to the AMX13 versions, and give this Skoda a 4 round clip.

 

Really stop the 3 round stupidity please.

 

Also stop saying that default APCR does not behave like premiums AKA they dont bounce more often at a distance, because it is absolutely false, the T-50 like all the tanks in game that uses this type of ammo have nearly half unefficient shots per game, yes 50% bounced off shots per games, yeeeha.

When you only have three shots and see two out of three miserably bounce off the side hull of a Centurion you feel useless as a 5th wheel to a car and start getting mad angry.

 

You devs have no idea how badly i curse you each times it happens, RNG is cancer.

It works perfectly fine with a 3-shot. The reload is pretty quick. Dump 3 shots, by the time you relocate you have 3 more reloaded and ready to go. What is the reload like 24 seconds or something? It's not bad, just based off of memory. I don't see what the big deal is. It's a very effective tank. The interclip reload is also pretty short, which is nice. Plus it doesn't get some of the bad gun-handling that some of the other autoloaders that you mentioned have.

You guys make me laugh you Always talk in the dominant point of view, the attacker point of view, then what about all the times where you can't relocate at all, all the time nwhere your team sucks, all the times where light tanks rush your face, how do you defend yourself if you can't kill ?

How many times did i found myself unable to stop ennemies from overwhelm my position, how many times did i tried to run away and ridiculously was caught up in a second by soviet heavies ?

It is a good support tank, a good second line or flank tank, but it is never a solid opponent when things go wrong for the team.

There was nothing aggressive about what I said, or at least not any intent. I was just trying to focus on some of the attributes that I felt like you were not taking into consideration. if you look at it just as only a 3-shot and what the clip potential is, then yes, it seems underwhelming. But if you look at some of it's other strengths compared to tanks with more shots per clip, you see what advantages it has. Like anything, you have to play to it's strengths. As with any autoloader, timing is everything. Sometimes you get caught reloading. You have to be sneaky and passive early on or you will die. Turn up the aggression as the battle goes on and always roll with a buddy, for cover. I find the Skoda T-50 to be a super fun, effective auto-loader. The BC AP is fun too but I don't know which one is better.

It has a higher rof than the t54e1 American automating medium. The lower alpha gives it slightly less dpm but the skoda has light years better pen on both standard and premium round. T54 gets 210/255 pen where skoda gets 248/310. It’s got a quicker reload because it has less shells per clip. It’s still we’ll under 10 seconds a shell so how on earth is that bad at all?

The Skoda T50 is much like the Skoda T25 in that it really doesn't shine until you get the Auto Loader. For some reason that makes all the difference. The tank is still the size of a house with no armor but that gun is really good with a pretty quick reload and decent interclip load and very good penetration for a Tier IX Medium. The Alpha is not bad as it is only a 100mm but it adds up quick. I have my highest damage match in this tank (5698 actual, still haven't broke the 6K mark but I feel it coming). The mobility is pretty decent as well making this a great flanking tank. I like it and will probably end up keeping it but that will depend on how well I like the Tier X when I get it.
