Hey everyone, 

 

Every week, we post about a Tier VII or Tier VIII vehicle and bundle it with Premium Time and other items.  

 

This week, we have the next Tier VIII, the Strv S1

 

The Strv S1 (or as I like to call it, the Doorstop) has a nifty Siege mode that lets you increase your accuracy and aiming time. While you're in Siege mode, you won't lose binocs or your camo net when turning, making you a great sniper. 

 

Think you might be interested? Be sure to check out the Bundle details on our portal article: Tier VIII of the Week: Strv S1

 One of the most overpowered tanks in the game. Literally laughs at Tier X armor.

Is this tank worth $34.30?  I have a 30% off coupon that can be applied to "regular" vehicles like this STRV. (not saying I'll buy it though, but is it worth it?)

It's a good tank destroyer, but some people like to grief you in it. I had a unicum teamkill me on Frontlines mode by flipping me over and then pushing me off a cliff when I was in siege mode.

Purchase price of tank 10K gold = $43.00 ish current shop price.

30 days of premium = $12.40 ish.

Garage slot = $1.00 ish.

 

Overall, separate items, around $56.00 actually a good price over individual items, so yeah. As unhappy as I am with WG right now, I am weak. Shut up and take my money.

Donn't support Wargaming's broken matchmaking. Boycott buying any tier 8 premium until they fix tier 8.

This is not a PMM vehicle.

Seems there was an undisclosed camo nerf in the last micro patch.  It got lit way too easily on FL mode compared to what it use to after that patch.  Several other tanks I've noticed the same issue, to include the America Scorp..  I'm not the only person that made mention of this. No way to substantiate my claim, just an observation.

According to WoTinfo, it has a composite camo rating of 63.37 with a camo net and 100% camo skill running vents.

 

My six skill crew E-25 with camo net BIA and chocolate is only 62 - So basically a stock tank with a single skill crew, and this thing has greater camo than a six skill crew E-25.

Tier 8 might be screwed up, but this tank remains competitive with its camo and its high pen.  It's my highest credit earner as a result as it does damage in 95% of hits, and that's without premium ammo.  Its armor trolls other tier 8 mediums too since they generally don't come with guns greater than 90mm in size.

Looks like you basically get 30 days premium for free.
