Quick guide to  buying tier8 prems:

- Is it a medium or heavy tank?  if yes, dont buy it.

-Is it a TD or light tank?  If yes, does it suck? If no, buy it.

There are such things as sentences and words. Why don't you use them to create a discussion/your op?:facepalm:

Why would people call it a mini defender when its actually an object 416 lookalike?

Because it looks like an old WWII soviet propaganda poster and not like a sneaky sexy little death machine

I wouldn´t spend money on it with the current tier 8 MM being fubar.

Watched QB play this tank last night and it sucked the life out of him in a few hours. From the recent premiums, this looks like the worse of them.

 

The STG is basically a Russian T34 (no hyphen). Good accuracy when aimed in, long aim time, decent pen, high damage, tough turret, paper hull, poor engine power and not that mobile with 1600 DPM.

I'm actually tempted to buy it now. See what a clums like me manage to do. Might try using it as a sniper, depending how the gun feel. 

 

At least it will have a great crew.

I'd say no, it's a tier 8 so all MM is crap for it. Plus it's not an overly good tank and when (if) they fix tier 8 MM I think the T-54 proto is the better option. 

 

If it had better soft stats on the gun maybe, but the M4 Rev is just much better in that regard.

It's funny that now we consider a tank which was balanced 1-2 years ago to not be worth it anymore now.

 

Says a lot about the direction this game has headed in doesn't it?

THe main reason is the new MM, not the tank itself.

Is it though? The Defender doesn't seem to have that much of an issue with the MM, neither does the Lorraine 40t or the Skorpion.....

 

And while the MM for anything below tier 9 when platooned is utter garbage and always bottom tier, playing solo is actually not *THAT* bad.

I already have a Russian Medium crew trainer, and I have a Rev M4a1, so I see little need for this tank.

They still have issues, its not like you are useless but you are way less effective and its much less fun than in tier10 battles, you get punished harder and faster and your dmg output is smaller relativly.   I rather play a skorp/wz120  over the defender/patriot any day.

STG Guard : Worth It or Not .... ?

 

Depends if you have a USSR medium crew trainer. If you have a T34-85 Berlin, or a T34-85M possibly not. If you need a USSR medium crew trainer then it will do the job.
