Setter and the 900 DPM is terrible indeed. Useless vs anything. But...

 

 

 

once you snap out of it. Tier for tier elite and with a good crew. It's definitely the best the line has to offer. As the DPM gap between that and the tier 9 is almost nothing to name one. It's not a bad passive scout and support light tbh. Only one with good HE pen to compensate for the DPM vs other lights.

GSOR seems to work OK even with the terrible DPM.

I kinda had that effect earlier today while watching the opera Akhnaten in the cinema.

Good show that one, probably a thousand times better than the British LTs.

Almost this. IMO T7: average, t8: average, t9: good/very good. I have the Manticore (and all t10 lights) and i love it, i think i enjoy it the most from tier10 lts currently. :)  But i think its not for everyone. It needs patience and the love of passive scouting.

the GSOR, i pick any of my T8T/9 other lights and wipe them out...

playing it, i feel being a t6 in t9/t10 battle.

 

almost to the manticore but i know it s the worst t10 light by far......

passive scouting is not in the meta but on a couple of maps :sceptic:

LHMTV is the only one that works of the whole line but it's still the worst light in it's tier, Setter...just no, GSOR flips on it's side or burns, has good pen and that's it, absolutely useless light that has to be  handled with great care or it flips on a pebble,

Manticore... 8degres gun ELEVATION....hello, soooooo many situations where u simply cant get the gun on target, most frustrating tank ever, has massive gun that has ZERO place on a light.

 

Not a single one of them can defend themself , they will lose every single engagement one on one.

Not a single one of them can shoot on the move (massive bloom), horrible gun handling.

To release a tech branch in this state is nothing but shameful.

Painfull experience all together.

Setter stock grind is insanely brutal, You NEED a 5 skill crew and free XP all the modules and even then its trash. everything basicly runs you over even lower tier tanks can just out damage you with extreme ease.

My average dmg by some not cherry picked lights:

Tier7:

T71 DA 984 dpg

LTG 772 dpg

Amx 13 75 585 dpg (my first ever tier7)

M41 Bulldog 772 dpg (i played it when it still was tier7)

WZ-131 791 dpg

Setter 364 dpg. 

 

Then some lower tiers for contrast. 

 

Luchs 569 dpg

T-127 363 dpg

M5 A1 Stuart 423 dpg

Strv M40/L 403 dpg

Chi-Ha 463 dpg

 

Sooooo, it's fair to say at least in my hands the Setter is slightly underperforming. Which isn't that surprising, given that my Pz S35 has better gun stats and dpm at tier lll. I bet I could take on a Setter with my Luchs any given day of the week 10/10 times.

364 seems very low, that's less than 3 shots a game, for a decent player that seems poor, maybe you were too aggressive, they all need sneaky patient style of play.
