Newsflash, the jap medium line is crap from tier 1 to 10, nothing to see.

Just wait and do not play it until WG buff it. They announced that it is in the first bunch of tanks planned for buff.

And if they do it WG style they overbuff it, then you can enjoy :P

Most of us grind lines because tanks look cool. That's why I'm stuck at STA-1 (won't even buy), got STA-2 as well, and my only T9 is a crapM103, probably the best T9 in the game. Ah but I still get decent games sometimes, who needs to bounce when you can take damage directly to the ammo rack?

yep, I also have IS-4 as it was my second T10 (first being IS-7) but KV-4 was my first tier 8 before IS-3 only because I wanted that IS-4, IDK for me looks cool even if is totaly outdated as a T10.

If it makes you feel any better, STB-1 line is scheduled for rebalance at some point in the future, probably.

It needs a buff but its hardly a tier 8 tank. 

 

Wait to see what WG do with it, apparently its going to get a siege mode which could be interesting, say keep its current poor gun handling, and DPM, but then get much better gun handling/DPM in siege mode with much worse mobility.

Or they give it a derp gun to make it more consistent with the other jap line :harp:

It was my second or third tier X and frustrating every time I go back to it and try to make it work. It never works.

Oh dear you made the same mistake I did the stb-1 was my first tier 10.

 

I genuinely feel for you the gun is just trash I've had games with 0 dmg many times due to missed or bounced shots.my record was something like 12 fully aimed shots all bounce or miss in a grand battle.

 

Even enemy afk tanks was a challenge to hit.

 

Basically it's been power crept 

 

It is the worst tier 10 unfortunately but it looks cool.Wg said that they will "balance" the Japanese meds.so it might get buffed 

 

Some people can play it well the only vaguely successful tactic was to play in it like a turreted td.

 

I ran very stab, vents and egld with 5 skill via crew and still struggled to get this tank to work.

 

The only tier 10 I ever rage sold and never rebought.

 

The lower tiered meds up to tier 5 are awesome 

 

The tier 4-5 are personal favourites.

Seems like WG logic. I wouldn't be surprised :trollface:

Even though I have never played STB-1 I think 30 B is even worse. It has the worst penetration among all TX meds and the handling is nothing special. At least STB-1 has some gun depression and nice penetration with decent velocity. 30B has nothing but some extra DPM and better mobility which is useless 99% of the time

Compared to STB-1 30B is good. Even tho it has that bad pen it has a way better gun that actually hit targets.

Stb1 is difficult to play, but it is not a t8 (Sta-2 is pretty good btw).

Best players succeed in making it very un-noticeable until the end.

 

Problem it has : focused by HE, too big and rocks while moving/stoping like a drunken sailor returning to port.

I think the only way someone can truly comment on which one is worse is if they have played them both. I have played only 30B and it is really a bad tank. And at least on paper just by looking at stats, STB-1 looks better than 30B. Hell even Leopard 1 looks better than 30B to me. Even though they are all crappy tanks
