I really think this tank needs a better gun as it has the same as the Tier 9, and a revamp

I like the style so I am going for it (slowly, I can get only so much STA / day), but isn't it a bit powercreeped and forgotten?

While technically, yes it is. But if you're a semi competent player, Just like in the same way the Leo 1, it can actually be pretty fun to play and quite deadly

I have the STB-1 it was my 1st tier 10 tank.

 

I agree it really needs an accuraccy buff and is actually the only tier 10 that has a worse gun that the tier 9.

 

I have hate hate relationship with this tank and have sold it once before rebuying.

 

It suffers from poor-ish mobility bad armour and bad accuracy and RNG, in a recent game i fired 10 gold shells at close range only 2 penned. the amazing thisg was that they actually hit what i aimed at, most of the time those shells would have hit the floor.

 

I asked advice on the forum about how to play this thing better and was given some tips which was really helpful.

 

the major problem with this tank is that it has been power creeped to death its hard to ever get close to 2k damage as most of your shots will bounce the new meta of heavies.

i could probably sit behind and enemy afk tank and struggle to get 2k in this thing.

 

This is a bad tier 10 really bad the worst part is that its not even fun to play, you have the armour of a light and mobility and accuracy of a heavy....

 

By all means try it but this really is a tank for unicum players. But be warned it is very unbalanced

 

I almost considered sending in a ticket to WG about this such was my disappointment.

 

 

I genuinely feel like I've been conned

As it was it's novelty factor I wonder if they couldnt give it a huge gun depression and elevation like the swedish tanks, WITHOUT need to enter siege mode. :coin:

Yeah, this tank desperately needs a buff in the gun's softstats, and maybe to dispersion as well.

Currently those stats don't suit the rest of the line at all.

Indeed, but you have to close the distance (unlike the Leo). Pretty inaccurate as a sniper, in close range u can make advantage of its high rate of fire.

The front turret armor is better than the Leo's too(its not good, just better than :) ), and it has good gun depression to work ridges.

Now that they've buffed just about the entire Russian tech tree, let's hope they will buff other nations as well. 

 

 

Nevermind, it's WG.

stb is real garbage - bad camo, bad spotting (useless viewrange), very low pen (like play amx cdc)

but wg never buff this tank. they made new italian tanks and all old tanks is out of date.

I'm not exactly sure what are you getting at here. There are other mediums with similar "issue", AMX 30 and 30B share the same gun, Centurion 7/1 and Action X, Leopard PTA and Leopard.

I personally think that STB is all right, but it must be played in certain way. If we take STB, Patton, AMX 30B and Centurion as a group of comparable and similar tanks I would rate STB higher than AMX and Centurion, but lower than Patton.

I don t know about you but all my last games were full tiers X battles.

Strangely it is my only tiers X with that kind of problem.

Any one encoutering this same mm behaviour ?
