I need to grind through the T29 in as few games as possible.  I have the first package unlocked - T29E3-with the 90 mm gun.  I currently have 38K XP towards the 100k needed to unlock the T32.  I am guessing it doesn't make any sense to unlock the 105 for 37.1K XP since I am only 62K XP away from the T32.  I cant see the 105 being so much better that it would get me 100k XP quicker than the 90 will get me 62K XP right?

 

I will go back and unlock the 105 later, but for now, I need to get to T9 for the Chisel contract ASAP.

 

Thanks!

I actually prefer the 90mm with liberal use of premium ammo when low tier.

If you want to be one of the 47 Ronin check out our recruitment post and then send a message to Prof935 (xbox) or dimka935 (ps4).

Thanks Pat!

 

I am not surprised to hear that.  I have been very impressed with the 90 so far.

I also prefer the 90 mm gun even without using gold rounds.

Problems can occur if you are fighting vs certain tier 9 tanks though

No problem, just switch to prammo, 252 mm pen will go trough most of it. You made a choice and you might have a problem, same as someone brand new starting to play tanks and clueless about existance of premium ammo at all.

I think I would skip it only because you are in a hurry, sometimes you can get a discount on the next tank if you grind the extra package but in this case it looks like they aren't using the same 105 so it won't help on the t-32 to reduce the cost of some of the upgrades. anyone confirm?  i liked the 105 but i have not played my t-29 for along time and i am sure they hit it with the nerf bat or made adjustments since i was running my t-29

the t29 is one of the best tier 7s, and one of the best tanks in the game imo. one of the few I will never sell. 

 

with that being said, its worth getting the 105, and learning how to play the tank to the best of its capabities before moving on. 

 

I three marked it with the 105...I can't imagine trying  to do that with the 90. I cringe everytime I see a t29 on my team rocking the 90 lol

 

Get the 105, take your time...keep the tank in your back pocket. Don't sell it. Next time there's an op that requires a USA hvy, you'll be happy you did!

 

I stand corrected if I'm wrong here, but if you rush past the 105 straight to the t32, don't you just end up with a longer t32 grind? I'd rather have that grind in a t29 than a t32...

What is the hurry?  And even if you continue to use the 90mm, you still need to unlock the 105mm on the T29.  You don't want to have to grind it when in the T32 against tier X's.

I kept the T29; first rush to tier X. I did switch to the 90mm after reading historic threads and am really liking the reload and accuracy vs the 105mm.

I only have 1 MOE; still crawling out of my early bad stats. I do enjoy the 90mm. Premium ammo in reserves is a must for bottom and some mid tier action.

Been thinking of switching back to 105mm after more experience, but I enjoy front line action too much; no discipline of patience.

Lastly, a good 4 plus crew really helps this tank perform (same for any tank really).

If I recall correctly, in 2015 the 105 on the T29 was also the top gun on the T32. So it really made sense to get it.

 

I don't recall the T32 having 200+ pen back when I went through it.

That is correct. Back in the day the T32 did not get any upgrade on the gun, which made it a premium slinger all the way. I‘d go with the 105mm over the 90mm any day. It‘s still accurate enough, plus the alpha and the AP‘s pen value make it a worthwile upgrade.

Play the 105 and keep T29. You’ll want to come back to it when T32 is making you crazy.
