now im regretting that i didnt get the swedish meds straight away, maybe im just lucky as hell and alright its only 9 battles, but damn its good.

at first i didnt even consider keeping it, but after those few battles im 100% sure that its a keeper for me, it will be funny if i will perform in tier 10 version much worse lol.

how about you guys? any xmas revelations, during this map xp boost? :)

Compared to the VIII and X it's bad.

 

Sluggish, and gun trolls you like hell.


But if are enjoying it, great! :)

It does seem to be pretty good. I might blueprint it eventually, T8 Udes is just eeehhhh to grind 150k exp on it.

Well... I got the Maus with Christmas discounts. It was first sight love. First game got HT15 for T-55A (no honour sadly) and in about 15 battle I did, i got those requirements at least 5 times. 

I block on avarage 4-5k damage with 70% of the incoming fire bouncing off.

In those days I'm laughing at every single poster that complain about it's armour! :trollface:

The gun is very trollish indeed.

Tier 8 and 10 have better in game accuracy.

Tank would know as he's literally grinded out every single T9 Med,even all the questionable ones.

 

It's the only tier we ever platoon because of his obsession :trollface:

At the tiers 9 now so it's good news. I think I prefered the tiers 8 but the 9 is ok.

It seems that Sweden is globally a good choice. 3 nice regular lines and good premiums.

..udes 16 is good and under rated...

 

Completely agree

 

I don't understand why it's been overlooked by the commentariat. It seems as balanced as the standard b.

 

Edit: it doesn't have a sniping gun but that rarely matters as it's depression and armour means that it plays well at mid range or closer.

Got myself Kranvagen during this Christmas specials and now on Mauchen with 25k XP left till Maus. You have to love that 50% XP boost on HT and daily x5 Maiden bonuses. Grinding go so fast :)

Wonder how will that Maus armor work since on Mauchen everybody shoot that commander cupola and it is very hard to miss considering how huge it is.

i think its best tank in line. T8 lack armor and t10 mm is simply way worse then t9. It was one of the most enjoyable tank to 3mark. Really wonder what gonna happen with new t9 sweden medium and what we gonna need to do to get it.

I just recently managed to research everything on this tank and I find it quite nice. To be honest, in some situations, this tank is straight up brokenly OPie !
The gun is a bit of meh, but let's be frank - all of the Tier IX Mediums are a bit trollish in their guns. Keep in mind, a lot of people love the Patton, which has disperssion values of 0.39 ! Numbers seems irrelevant. The UDES 16 seems like a fun tank. Very good indeed.

I just put all my Redheads in the Udes 16 for the Udes 15/16 when I get there....     the 16's Original Crew will be Training Up in the 42/57 until the Move when they get the Tank Back....

 

Rest of the Xmas Crew I put into my Emil II since it's been Vacant for so Long Now  and this Saved Gold having to Retrain another one....

The gun is a little derpy, but it hits hard and that gun depression and low profile is very comfortable to use.

I have it and I really like it.

 

But the top gun is pure garbage.

 

Some strange feelings right here...

 

If not the gun handling, this would be my favourite medium tank...

yeah it either hits everything or miss completely half of the shots :D

was grinding emil 2 because of twitch x5 misisons( i think at least it was from twitch), after 30 battles got the kranvagn pretty much unlocked, emil 2 is quite nice as well, damn i had a trash start with it - first 10 games like 30% wr and 2,3k dpg lol. played 20 more and now im sitting happily at 63% wr and 2950 dpg :D had 2 aces on the way - 6,5 and 8,9. when it works, it works great, when you get caught out, you finish with 0 dmg in 10 secs... i think i had at least 3-4 0 dmg games :D

 

Anyway, enjoy your xmas eve, im off to grind some credits :D

The UDES 16 to me is like quite a few tier 9s where WG are lazy, IMO they make the tier 10 and then make a tier 9 that is like 10-20% worse in every way with nothing really unique to it, so you end up playing it just to get the so much better tier 10.

 

A lot of the older tier 9s tier for tier are better than their tier 10s IMO or at least offer something a little different, but newer tier 9s generally seem more designed to just be bad tier 10s so you grind the tier 10. 

 

UDES to me felt like one of those, not a bad tank exactly but just a flat out worse in every way to the tier 10 so has no real value of it's own.

i played udes 15/16 only on test server, when they first appeared, bullied heavies on studzianki at their side of rubble :D havent seen so many bald plays on live server, but it should be alright, as tank is tiny, can use pretty much any dips.

so yeah you might be 100% right about it, its just that i havent played 15/16 on live server yet.
