Hey Tankers!

 

Three new Swedish mediums or, "Swediums" have hit the Supertest!  If you're familiar with the Swedish TD's then you'll recognize the suspension system.  These mediums come with the "Hydro-pneumatic suspension" system, but unlike the TDs the mediums will automatically enter "siege" when your tank goes under 10kmh.

 

For a more detailed look on the new Swediums, check out the video below:

i have a strv and i'll be honest - i see no difference between siege mode and travel mode except the top speed is lowered in siege.  some people say its more accurate in siege but that's bs.  sorry - just keepin it real.   will this change with the new mediums?

i see more like a swedish td with a more mobile siege mode and op tank in ridges...small, very good depresion, angled armor similar to strv's...not heat protection and many guns can overpen his armor....if can hit this little thing

Bino and camo net stays when rotating in travel mode? If not, it might be one difference.

please do something about the PRIMO VICTORIA. I think it has a worthless cannon. Please and thank you:)  some will say cannon is okay but if any of them say the hull armor doesn't need improvement they are goofy.

You have a chance to make this a very unique tank, so let's ensure it!

 

With a such a short-barreled gun, it should have low penetration, bad accuracy, slow aim time, and high alpha. The reload time needs to be the balancing factor. If the other gun statistics prove to overpowered, then nerf the reload time. If it is underpowered, buff the reload time. Just keep the other statistics to ensure the uniqueness of the tank.

Trolls love to come up behind and flip them, please consider equipping these with boat anchors to hold them down.

Stop making this trash.

 

This is not good balance.

 

If you pick a tank like a super conquerer, or foch b, these tanks will be invincible against you.

 

If you pick a tank like an obj 277, is-7, etc, these tanks will be free damage to you.

 

If you pick a medium tank, and press 2, these tanks will be free damage to you.

 

STOP MAKING TANKS BALANCED AROUND HEAT AND OVERMATCH MECHANICS.

THIS IS BAD BALANCE. THIS IS BAD GAMEPLAY.

 

It doesn't take any skill whatsoever to defeat these tanks. It takes whatever tank you decide to choose in the garage. 

 

Just because it ends up with a 48% global w/r does NOT mean its good for the health of the game.

Troll much reroll?

The same could be said for ANY tank. There is always a counter. That is the WoT definition of balance :|

As a swedish (IRL) player and I don't want to sound ungreatful but no higher tier light tanks, where's that Lancen (medium) project, spg's? Yeah we hate them scumbags but interesting if they could make some fun ones, for personal missions. Blueprints for many exist. As with anything new it's fun to test things out but swe heavys even with their insane turrets, they are too slow, too long reload, too long interclip reload in a meta with speed. Swe TDs with this "siege mode" the same. Was fun at first, then more people (like myself) realized they were far too map/team dependant. So now we will have medium tanks that will be semi sluggish, long reload but good alpha? Okey. I can already see the fun when you must brawl or have a 1vs1 fight with another medium that are faster with faster RoF. I'm skeptical.
 
EDIT: They say there arn't many other swe medium blueprints. I could link some but I fear the chance of them listening is minor at best. If I play a medium, I want to play a medium. Not some hybrid "need to play it in a special way then all others" to be playing it at optimal rate. I fear swe mediums will be very map dependant just like our TDs. Community is not that happy about that. I can already see how these tanks will be rushed by the metas fast lights and other (cough) stallinium armor Ru meds including those same from China. But I guess we can only speculate. However I will stand by my words and see if I will be happily proven wrong.
 
EDIT 2: Any new swe medium premium? Primo V with 230 alpha at t8 isn't really top notch. Makes decent credits sure and turret can bounce some shells but still and the first t6 m/42-57 is ok-ish I guess.

Signed. Though they have said they are looking into it as they see the current MM, especially t8 isn't really cutting it. But until then, well. I'll play my t6 and t9 (some t10) tanks.
