Swedish TD's don't seem to be carry vehicles due to their siege mode activation and deactivation time. They become somewhat inflexible once they have to apply pressure and their prey doesn't come to them.  I dunno, I could be wrong though.

^this.... Jesus christ that siege mode takes getting used to... I hate it with a passion. Makes u a defensive TD and u can't fire on the move, especially in the strv s1 since it doesn't have gun elevation without siege mode.

Indeed. The WoT gods must have heard my whining though because the next 2-3 games after this one were wins and one I thought for sure we would lose. I mean, it was one of those down 3-8 games (do I die standing or go find the nearest deep water)? LOL I have no idea how we pulled it out, one flank folded, ours held and over ran, then we were able to double back and pick off the survivors from the other flank and then hunt down arty. It was a great game! :)

Um 3.5k dmg isn't even that good. Like it's a decent game

But 8-9 shots that pen won't help your team win much at all.

Your win rate usually is better at around 4-5k to get a win in a tier 8 tank

It's pretty good for that tank and was high caliber for that game. Average damage per game for the Strv-S1 on vbaddict.com is well below the 3,576 mark.

Try playing the Leo PTA...I get fairly consistent games but I'm always getting piss poor map rotation and my best matches being losses. Most annoying part is when people complain about me bush sniping or tell me to go scout when there is 3 arty. When someone complains about you camping in the Leo PTA you know they've never played the tank.

 

The only reason the Leo PTA isn't my most hated tank right now is because I'm also currently grinding the 65T.

it's much more common to get more damage in a TD like that in a loss. When your team is winning it generally means that your team is moving forward and you'll be trailing your team. When the other team is winning they will be coming towards you and you can keep sniping. My highest damage game in the S1 was 5.8k for a loss. Who cares, call it a gg and move on to the next.

Here's my personal best so far. The first battle result I posted was with a single skill crew. I'm up to 2 skills now with 2nd skill set at 78% and it does help. I find the StrvS1 to be a fun and sometimes challenging tank to play. It does frequently depend on your team as the previous poster mentioned.

Hi all- trying this tank for the first time.  How do I aim the gun?  It's always pointing slightly upwards.  Thanks

I've had the same experience.   Highly team and map dependent.  It can rack up damage for sure, but not always the kind that carries a team.  Carrying is about when and where the damage is done, and sniping just isn't that kind of damage.

Not even there. The UDES is much more mobile. Even then I don't play it in FL anymore because there are better choices.
