I purchased the su-101 and before 9.22 it was clear wat to do:

camp and use that great dpm.

 

Now it has nerfed gun handling so sniping is no longer an option.

It is meant to assault, be in close range "brawling" however almost every tier 8 heavy can pen everything: lower plate, upper plate and super structure apart from the gun mantlet

 

So my question is how do you play this tank?

Do you have some tips / tactics?

[edited]WG. literally unplayable tank. it suck so much. They know how to make prem tank but they [edited]have no clue how to balance lower tiers and now we have to face tons of tier 10 games. Even tier 6 can pen you easily. What a load of crap tank it is and WG has no clue what to do. Just look at the top crapat tier 10 the obj 268 v4. Total beast. tier 8 is a cat to this thing. Get some brains on rent WG and start balacing lower tiers quick as well. You idiots.

I`m also grinding for the broken beast at tier 10. For the last 3 days I`ve been playing the SU 100M1 at tier 7 and all I can say is that I really really love this machine. The armor can bounce shots like you won`t believe it, the RoF is just great, the penetration is enough so your rarely have to press the 2 key and the speed is just perfect. Indeed, the traverse speed it`s bad, but it`s a small price to pay at the end of the day.

Still, I must agree with you: the tier 8 tank - the SU 101 seems quite bad. I was extremely surprised today to see that my 212 pen had no problem penetrate 5 consecutive shots into the SU 101 from the distance. I wasn`t even aiming for the lower plate or something... After I played the tier 7 and saw how the armor was solid (I had a game with 4.000 blocked dmg in a tier 8 game) I was pretty sure the SU 101 must be also strong, but I saw the difference it`s just 10 mm. And SU 101 meet tier 10 tanks... :ohmy:

PS: I`m sure the SU 101 is intentionally this crap so people use gold to convert free xp in order to skip it, just like every line in the game have a total crap tank for the same reason. And boy do the SU 101 need a ton of XP just to be able to unlock the tier 9 (3 guns ffs)!

The SU-152 isn't much better, it has a great gun with crap accuracy but damage is cool, however they say its meant to be a brawler but its so slow, ya get penned on the way there by Arty and then tanks just dink ya easy close range. They made a mega mistake with these. I am now wishing I went the German way........

SU-152 is probably the best tier 7 TD. 700alpha for paper tanks, 910HE for armoured tanks. You can even use the 250pen HEAT to oneshot low tier HTs or to scare tier 9 armoured veicles!

With its mobility, what you call "clear" I call "wrong".

I found the su 100m1 Op got 2.5k wn8 and 60% wr in my recent grind and thats well above my global. The tank is bouncy and can out dpm most same tier heavies. Just go close range in heavy lines with team mates and let rip. That td leads to an assault monster all the predecessors are setup to now play the same.

 

I have just continued the same play style on the 101, it can bounce is7 ap shoots if angled correctly. Use mobility and get into the front of battle be brave in it.
