tank designers certainly have sadistic tendencies towards players.

the Strv m/42 proves it...

why wasn't it possible to make this tank just a little bit better?

It's one of the more crew dependent tanks around, and that's coming from someone that has 400 games with a sub 100% crew in it.  But it's far from bad... or the worst.

Didn't feel too bad, I grinded past it with 79% winrate.

It seems simple and easy to play, I've never bothered with a great crew in it but have a 55% WR. Not saying it's a great tank but I like it's general capability.

My win rate in it was horrid, but my wn8 was good looking;

 

tier 5

average damage 800

average experience 742

25 games to grind to the tier VI, and then sold it.

48% win rate.

2,994 average wn8 in it.

 

But the Strv 74 and the Leo are both pretty good, so there has to be one stumbling block in the tech tree, and the Strv M42 is that blockage.

winrate says nothing.... WR is pure Rigged Numbers Generator TM

I got 45% winrate, but do more damage with it than 88% of players.

If you kept playing it, you would probably 3rd mark it lol... http://wotreplays.co...bolcz-strv_m_42

 

I DONT EVEN PLAY MEDIUMS... this one was my first experience on them, and I 3rd mark it after 81 games, with 873 dmg and 300 assist :teethhappy:

 

I enjoyed the tank though, the dmg in nice for its tier, but hell I used a lot of premium shells

Easy to play. Not OP but an OK tank and probably the first decent tank in the Swedish tank line. Really don't see the problem.

I think it's one of the best tanks in the tier. High alpha, fairly good mobility, ok gun handling for the tier, and insane gun depression. Only problem I can think of, is that you get one-shot killed by derp guns if you're not careful.

 

It's also by far my best performing tank. Originally I planned to sell it after unlocking the next one, but after a few games I knew I had to keep it.

Wait, you mean tier v? The one with 15 degrees of gun depression and 150 alpha?

That just means you sit at the back and farm damage until your team inevitably loses better than 88% of players, it doesn't prove rigging.

I think that's enough to open a libel & slander case?

I liked swedish tier 5 more than tier 6. You don't see defenders, chryslers etc. and you can pen everything up to tier 7 without gold, except maybe japanese heavies. Only drwaback it that bad viewrange, but most players don't have good crews on tier 5 anyways, so that doesn't matter that much.

It's not, it's got a decent enough gun, nice pen, scary alpha, amazing gun depression and alright mobility for its tier. It's not a bad grind at all. Only real downside is the gun mounted in an offset position that makes your shell come out weird sometimes.

 

But seeing as you think WR is nothing but rng, you're full of crap anyways...

Took me 15 battles to unlock the tier 6 tank. That's with it fully upgraded first. Really enjoyable tank, decent gun and insane gun depression. Mobility was Ok but not great. Next two tanks I really enjoyed also.
