Wow, this tank is so amazing now. Transition to siege mode is damn smooth now ( 30/30 kmph) and -14 gun depression is just insane. Regular gun depression -8 is also very nice, because STB-1 is a low profile tank. Even gun elevation is good now. Turret traverse is better now, and everyting came at cost of slight track traverse nerf.

Did WG carried away a little bit? Probably yes...only downsides are mediocre top speed and not so great gun performance on long range. It is better than regular ridge fighters (M48, CAX, Leo) because it has more gun depression and it has DPM advantage. It is better than soviet DPM monsters because DPM is roughly the same but is more flexible due to gun depression. It is better than UDES becuse it has better firepower and it is more flexible outside siege mode. All in all, STB-1 is now one of the best tech tree medium tanks along with 430U and Progetto 65.

Played it last night... Really like it.   Had to ask the purple guy i was tooned with how it worked however.  (map was overlord)

 

Played the Leo 1 for the first time on Minsk... Owned the map. really like this too.

 

Dont think I belong in T10 but it was fun all the same.

I think the UDES 15/16 is better, has better alpha, it's turret is way stronger, it will bounce more outside of hull down, its very low profile and it has insane camo.

 

Gun handling and mobility of the two tanks is pretty similar. 

 

Trouble with the siege mode is you give people time to shoot at your turret, the whole thing is bit more clunky than usual ridge line pokers and in that situation you want to have the best armour which is on the UDES.

I have the UDES and just unlocked the STB, but, TX is currently not the place to have fun so I don't intend to buy the STb or play the UDES anymore

No one plays tier X for fun, they play it so people will pay more attention to what they say on here. :hiding:

I'm actually enjoying tier 10 these days more than I used to, lot less Fv4005s and Type 5s about spamming HE at everything. 

 

And there seem to be a lot of triple arty games on whatever tier you play and at lower tiers those arty are massively OP compared to the annoyance at tier 10. 

 

Still a lot of work to do on tier 10 balance for WG, but recent changes have made improvements.

I've stayed away from Tier 10 for ages (apart from CWs)

 

Really enjoyed last night playing Tier 10. Tanks that just collect dust.  And I find the FV4005 while not toothless, its a shadow of its former self as for the Type 4/5.... still idiot proof for Steve.
