First game in the tier 9 Strv (still fully stock) and it was a very close game. Within half a second from finishing off the Type 59 and just couldn't make it.

Impressive! Definitely a nail-biter at the end, there. 

Curious to hear your impressions of the Strv-0 after you get all the modules.

 

Personally, between the UDES and the 103b I found myself struggling in the 103-0 since it's sort of a marriage between the two. I tend to perform better in Tier IX than X, generally, but this was not the case for me with the Swedes.

A little bit of a side tip when playing the strv's and fighting another strv...switch to HE and pen the commanders hatch.  It's easily hit and you'll full pen strv's with HE.  I won almost every 1v1 I ever had with another strv because I'd hit them with HE for massive dmg and they'd try shooting me with gold rounds.

 

The tier X is reserved for clan wars play only in my garage.  You perform better in tier 9 rather than X, in my opinion, because the MM is easier on tier 9's right now.  I'm consistency in all tier X matches when I try and play top tier.  You're in a lot of tier 8 matches when playing tier 9.

 

In all honesty...this is a issue that is regularly brought up in discussions and highlights a problem with the current MM.  I'm almost always in full tier X matches or a 5/10 split playing tier X.  So things you're fighting hit much harder than things you fight in a tier 9 most games.  You're almost always in a 3/5/7 as tier 9...when you're not top tier that is.   It's how it feels to me anyway.

I really enjoyed the Udes once I got it fully upgraded, but the stock grind wasn't nearly as bad as the Russian Heavy grind. The Strv 103-0 on the other hand seems to do fairly well even when stock. So far averaging 3.2k damage after 6 games, so its pretty fun. 

 

I'm really looking forward to the 103b so I can hopefully get TD-15 done for the Obj 260. I've been stuck on that mission for a year and I can't seem to get 8k damage again. Did it once in my Fv215b 183 a while back on Pilsen, but I got really lucky to do that. (Think I ended up penning 3 tier 10s with HE and then shot a few tier 8s to get it.) 

 

I could try to go back and do LT-15 and SPG-15 with honors from the 55a to get the orders to skip TD-15, but I don't really have good tanks to do that in (or I don't get the right situations.) But Hopefully I can get it after it gets buffed ;)

That's a good tip! I always under-utilize HE in my Swedish TD's, and I've lost many an Strv duel before.

I'm well aware of the comfort issues with the 3/5/7 template (on a side note, have you heard about the MM changes currently being tested on the APAC server? I'm pretty excited about that) which is why I currently love my IX's but I just couldn't make the Strv-0 work :( I'll take the extra armor or the better Camo

It's excellent for that. It's the only tank in which I look forward to seeing a bunch of superheavies on the enemy team. Farm, farm, farm!
