This is getting  ridiculous . . They shoot and shoot and you won't see them until you stumble over one. Their camo is good enough as it is, why make the net and binocs always active ?  This has to be changed . . seriously.

The net and binocs arent always active. They are active just like any a TD with a turret.

He never noticed than in any of the 8434 battles he played in his T67. I guess he just notices when he's on the other end of the club.

I guess what you two are trying to say that it's a compensation for the crippling siege mode :)

Its a transformer tank, I call mine Optimus, enter siege mode and u get a turret!

S class aren't as good for camo as UDES tho but it only has paper for armour so it's got to have something going it's way.

Unlike 'proper tanks' unless you're in siege mode you can't aim, well u can but u will miss every shot unless u are only 1 m away:)

I don't find the swedish TDs OP at all, they seem powerful, but balanced to me.

Don't get killed by them that often.

Never ceases me how people want their bread buttered both sides.  Clubs like Canadian in November with his T67.  Can't stand having to recieve it at higher tires.

 

Oh and drives the E25 the TD that keeps it's camo when shooting.

Wouldent buttering both sides of the bread make it really hard to pick it up and eat it without getting messy fingers?

Not that I'm trying to justify anything here or act like the T67 Isn't 100% Pure bull**** (because it is), the only thing I want to point out is the T67 Atleast dies when it finally gets spotted most of the time. Having to face a Strv frontally, in a tank that can't overmatch it is often like watching a dog or cat trying to grab something just out of their reach. It's especially frustrating because they do actually have decently-sized cupolas that are overmatched by any gun about 45mm as I understand (so basically autopen for any tank facing them), but unless you're the one proxy-spotting him, hitting it with some guns (i.e my Pershing for example) feels like firing a shotgun at a barn door from the inside and missing. :P

What's ridiculous is having the tier 9 bouncing tier 10 guns, but if an IS shoots it, it overmatches it. That's what's ridiculous, those 120+mm Russian guns, balancing the game.

The trick with the Udes and up, is to keep them concentrating on you and sitting still, while your friendly neighbourhood arty reloads... A hit on any of them is pretty much a guaranted kill, as they have no armour on the roof...

I like playing against guys like you when on the strv. 5.78s reload to farm you while you stare at me and wait for arty support...

Loading HE usually is enough to scare them away, and aiming for the upper half seems to have some chance of penning. HEAT also remains effective - bringing a new purpose to medium tanks with "useless" HEAT. Oh, and if you see one of the bastards, it's just polite to shoot him first, of course.

 

Half the fun in S1 and 103-0 is not camping in them, anyway. In my dreams they would've been MTs (well, MBTs, but close enough) - the ELC AMX was a light tank even when the only gun choice had limited turret rotation, with more 'sober' penetration and full-time/instantenous suspension mechanics.

 

(Though having the option to camp like a German tourist does make for some 'flexible' gameplay if your teammates are only good for shell sponge duty.)
