Why couldn't STB1 have received the side armour buff Type 61 got? l simply do not understand it.

45mm isn't much, but crucially changes that 122mm guns wouldn't be able to over-match sides anymore

lt really doesn't protect against anything else, but terrible over-match shots from common calibers

But the tier 9 gets it, and tier 10 does not? Really? 45mm should not be much to ask for.....

 

How about this, lets nerf obj 140, T62A, obj 907, obj 430U side armour to 35mm. Then see how bearable it is

Of course this has already been seen, removing obj 140  30mm roof, because they wanted no more over-match

Please don't talk about those Russian jewels.  The RU player base cried and they removed the 430 bro's from the nerf bat already.  So?

The STB-1 with the retarded Hydro suspension that is not even like the actual one because the actual one is 360 degrees all around.

The gun depression sucks ba11$ now.

With the lowered shell velocity you can see almost the shells fly now.

The lower damage does not help as well.

I gonna sell mine because I hate it already.

 

PS. I would like to meet the moron at wargaming who came with these B-$ changes.

Honestly... if one of them ever came to visit the Austin office, I'd be hard pressed not to take the 4 minute drive to their office (less if I don't hit any red lights) , rip their uni-brow right off their forehead while screaming wth!!! in their ear.

WG in a lot of the things they do seem an awful lot like the saying "A roomful of monkeys with typewriters will eventually bang out MacBeth".

ln all honesty, the STB1 is a bad tank.  lt could not have got any worse.

 

And while these changes, may be less than ideal stripping the gun depression while it drives, its alpha damage  -  they at least provided more DPM, better gun control, and when slower  -   -12 gun depression is better than -10.    .01 accuracy loss won't matter with the reputation for inaccuracy STB1 has always had. The turret armour is much better too, with slight 50~ HP buff,  and a way better HP/T ratio. While it became slower in top speed, it accelerates better and has a faster reverse instead.

 

ls it good? Who knows. l cannot say exactly.

ls it better than the crap it was before? Definitely.

 

The point is, why no side armour buff like Type 61 before it? Really?

The point is, the complaint is, why didn't it get the side armour improvement tier 9 got.  Makes absolutely no sense

And l am complaining, because a terrible 35mm side armour, is certainly '''not good'''

The STB is more of a bag of sh1t now than it was prior to the changes.
