Hello!

 

This was good, but after the WV-invasion, it is not playable anymore. Too slow to escape after spotted by WV. Also in FL it is useless.

Buy only if you like the hardcore bush fapping experience... It will be extremely frustrating for you otherwise, i ended up exchanging mine for the WZ-120-1 and i'm glad i did. The S1 is a good TD, but definitely not for everyone, get at least the UDES before buying it to see if you like the playstyle.

The problem with this tank, UDES 03, Strv 103-0 and Strv 103B is that they are extremly limited in most of maps, as almost all the bush wanking tank destroyers. Your good games will happen when your team is losing and your enemies are dumb enough to drive towards you and ignore you (good player will leave your range of fire after getting one shot). It's a great tank that has no place in the current game due to poor design of maps

Any tank that relies on camo is useless because of wheeled diseases rolling around.

udes 03 is only tank in line worth playing... didn't play this one nor tier 10, but more than 60 camo, 288 pen and 0.24 dispersion is awesome at tier 8. and it has amazing speed.

 

tier 9 is nothing special... so probably tier 10 is just more of the same. and s1 is just the same with less armor.

The lights in the enemy team can be countered by the lights in your team, just to make an example.

Teamwork is a fundamental part of WoT.

 

This is a great TD if you have the patience to wait for your turn and you're interested in trying the siege mode mechanic. As every other Premium tank, you have to understand if it's your cup of tea or not before getting it - if you like TDs and don't mind a little wait before you leave your mark on the battlefield, go for it; otherwise, if you're impatient to rush and do damage (like me :P ) I'd advise you to think it twice.

Do you even read before you send such post?

Sure it can be countered when any of tanks, including other lights hit EBR making this pathetic mojo-jojo on open field and it drives to enemy resp without getting shot even once

Its not clan wars when you can  be sure you have also EBR and he knows what is he doing


Do you even play this game? Looks like not, or you dont see any fundamental issues after introducing EBR into game. All top clans says EBR kills this game, kills tactics because you cannot  change flanks, in most situations its almost impossible to hit. And this is top clan wars, you cannot expect randoms to be such good to be able to deal with ebr driving 90+ km/h 

and you say it can get countered and ITS SO EASY. WTH

TDS like s1 are useless in wheeler meta, so just dont buy this. It was always situational, EBRs made it even harder to use because he can spot you without even getting single damage and when it happens, you are dead because you wont run away

Another thing is
Player with 700wn8 has no idea about game mechanics and is missing crucial game knowledge. Do not get into account opinions of such players because these ones are highly distorted. And get even more distorted when this person also works in company that sells pixel tanks. There are much better sources to find what tank is capable of


Just be serious guys and dont get fooled. You just cannot take Sael_'s opinion about tank while he is 500wn8 recent with 2000 games played overall. He has no idea about this game

I have this tank. Don't bother buying it because wheeled abominations will ruin your game.

Very decent tank. Its situational yes, but if you have a good spot its a brilliant credit maker. You dont need premium ammo most of the times, as it has high velocity and high penetration standard ammo. Only downside is that is APCR and it looses penetration more than AP at long distances. I do like this TD its like shooting lasers:)

Some tanks are a bit of a challenge to play and do well in and this is one of them.

It could do with a little more speed and I would like to test these TDs with the auto siege mode the mediums have. just to see if it improves things.

The tier 8 Standard Swedish TD has some gun elevation and it makes that one decent as it can actually fight out of siege mode if it has to.

That is very useful.

The tier 9 and 10 as well as the Strv must enter siege mode and that makes them extremely situational .

If you cannot ambush the enemy you are doomed what can you do drive up to him point the gun enter siege mode and fire.

What do you think he is doing while that's happening.

 

If the angles were changed so most of the time you were driving on flat terrain the gun was actually pointing at some part of the enemy tank then you would have some chance.

Other than that its purely a hide and snipe something it does extremely well, but it is not something you can easily do on every map and in every game.

Support vehicles all have this problem to some extent in that they are team dependent.

Such a great thing that you teach this to players when they start the game ..... oh wait, you don't.
