Well Your WG Staff, what else  should you say, you would talk against your "employer".  I have played this tank (STRV S1) alot and its so depentent on maps. AND There are some seriuos wrong if this tank is Accurate
and Its easier to snapp shots in obj 140 ( have both), than fully aiming and shooting with this. and IF you want to earn credits go with Progetto M35 mod. 46 instead. ( i did)

 

AND on the XP front, if you play it right then you dont get much XP,  even an arty is earning more XP ths STRV S1, UDES, STRV103-0 STRV103B in most games. You need to play agressive in front

to get XP, try that  with 30mm of armor that get ovematched.

 

They need change in armor so they reflect the mecanics they should have had. AND also remove the dead loader crap it does not have a loader :) its an auto loader with a 45 round magasine.

It does not have an loader as a crew member ?!?!

 

Mate if ur not getting much XP with this ones... Than not playing them right.

 

Yes its a tank that loves good open maps, in city gets let down but works the same.

 

Remember, to have XP, u need to do damage to enemies, with its accurate gun, good dpm u can do that in spades, just pick the right spot, but its not a camp all game in one spot affair, u gotta move as the battle moves and reposition to suport ur mates, since most shots will find the target and pen, ull be doing more damage than the teammate at the front face to face with the enemy in some battles.

 

Also with this u gotta know ur tank, use that camo and gun good, if u do, u virtually are not seen all match long and get lots of damage done and xp and credits at end.

My average in a loss with it (mind its a lost battle) is around 30 to 50k credits... On wins depending on game from 60 to 130k

 

Also that "armor"... yup it aint got but u can bounce pretty well with it, go to wot replays and find some of mine i got one game i had almost 5k blocked damage on the S1...

There are a few tricks to do to get those shots not to pen... Learn the tank, the tactics, the positions on maps and ull do fine on it.

 

PS- Mine as a 100% crew with 4 perks atm per crewmen done, when i get the 5th... I bet it will just get better.

One of the better premiums due to not having to worry all that much about the mm you get. Pick a bush and chill instead of getting all worked up. 

 

LOL one of the best premium?

 

In most maps nearly useless, why:

- Sige mode need to long to activate, you can't do ship without sige mode. In town map you must be lucky, to find position where to "snipe"

- 105mm gun with 288pen, but it have problem to overmatch cus of caliber

- very bad alpha damage, its should be 390, but most shells are doing 360Hp of damage. And bad DPM for such tank. 8 second reload, bia ,food,rammer,vents

- no armor and only 1k HP, German T8 TDs with 128mm guns, can 2 shoot you

- imposible to cover your self if flanked

 

Only good think is cammo

this tank has to much problems. To play it right OTHERS need to spot for you, It can do real good but. You need the gun firing all the time, but with 8.6 sec reload.  seige mode is terrible. If  you get spotted  your almost dead.

3 sec before you notice and 2 sec before you can move.  and on what maps can you get  a win  when the game is getting faster and faster ???

 

and how do you play this tank right ? 

 

Sorry but im a bad player if i understand it right.

This tank is excellent. One of our contributors suggested to me to play with it... and he was right! Accurate gun, very good depression, nice DPM... even with MM +2 you can contribute to the victory :)

 

Hahaha rly, which one contributor? Such one who say IS6,T34,P88, CDC are very good tanks? 

 

Nice DPM? :facepalm: It have 50hp more DPM then Skorpion G,  and that TD have 128mm gun and 490 alpha damage

Cracking tank. With many people moaning about 3/5/7 - the pen on this one allows it to hold its own vs. any tier.

 

i also don't recognize the quote above. This is not a gun to shoot whilst on the move (unless point blank range) so once in siege mode - the aim when rotating is ridiculously low (0.1 second). Once in siege mode and still there is no 're-aiming' on rotation. Unless I am mis-understanding something. 

 

And it is VERY accurate.

@vuque, i respect  what you say. Only problem its easier to be positive towards a company product in public than negative. i dare you to criticize a tank in the same way you praise this one.

it's an average tank thats, good on some open maps, on most maps hard to play. dont get me worng i like the game.

 

I see what you mean and yeah on some degree you are right, it might be easier to be positive. But if we are not criticizing publicly, it doesn't mean we don't criticize at all. We do it internally.

 

There is no use or good if I come to the forums and criticize something as some of our players do. First of all that is not professional. However, we can still share our personal opinions to some certain extent here on the forums. Here I would like to give 2 links just from this month which I took the liberty to talk about some tanks, no one asked me to do so but I choose to comment!

As you should and i respect that. This tank is so special ( maps, play style...)  and its not as good as you say. thats my strong reaction.  And also could be more carefull when putting out strong possitive on a tank.

Most maps, you say. Now that's nonsense. Himmelsdorf can be a bit tricky but you should be able to find a comfortable area to dish out some good damage on the other ones. If you want to feel useless you pick a heavy or medium in the bottom of a good old 3-5-7.

Very true but at the same time it is a very situational tank, useless more or less in a city map

Has anyone got a replay or a video how to play this tank in a city map?

Nah, but there's plenty of video online showing fellow team players pushing this tank over on it's back...

I was considering buying this with a 20% coupon I got, but now that it is only available in a package and my coupon expired, I will not.

I have a video with insane brawling with it in city, look my nick up on wotreplays...

 

But in city u can do 2 things...

Pick a area with a good viewrange, avenue, road and set on that, covering part of your hull in debris or other stuff and wait, or, u can go behind ur team suporting, also works, u set yourself slightly behind ur mates in siege mode and dish out damage that way suporting their advance.

 

I hate playing it on city maps, but i do play and its not a problem, there are always areas that are somewhat open and with a good range and cover that u can actually do something, sometimes i close up a flank alone and force the enemy team to go "lemming" on the other side cause they cant spot me.
