YUZ.  I worked sooo hard to gring the tank :)  Im proud of it :D 

 

"Worked so hard to grind?"  - 7 matches in the Type 61 (tier 9), 0 matches in the STA-1 (tier 8), 7 matches in the Chi-Ri, 0 matches in the Chi-To (tier 6) and 7 matches in the Chi-Nu (tier 5) and 0 matches in the other tanks of the line (tiers 2-4) and 2 matches in the Renault Otsu (tier 1)? ;)     (-or do you mean another account of yours where you also have the tier 10 STB-1 unlocked?)

 

...well, in the end you have the tank and that's reason enough to feel proud :).

This tank is still one of 7 (I think) tier 10 tanks missing that I need for Senior Technical Engineer!!! :izmena:

I wanted this tank so bad, just because I love it, in real life. I gotta be honest though, after the novelty wore off, It is probably my worst-performing tier 10. I still like it and it can be fun. But The paper armor and troll gun handling just don't do it for me. I get caught in a bad spot too early and that is it. So while I wouldn't say it isn't worth the grind, I don't think it is that great. I like the Patton much much better, as a hill fighter, flanker etc.

It depends if you don’t have the M48 Patton or CAX I would recommend those first.

This. Even if you don't like the STD-1 the tier 9 is one of my favorite mediums. Both guns are viable and help to cater to your personal play style.

Oh, speaking of RaiBOTs. 

Op is in dire need of a M4A1 Revalorisè, and the French tree is unable to currently fulfil their strong desire.

Halp. Gold is on the line here! 

 

It's no rush. I'm waiting to start any grind until I get the 2x XP OP for the month after part 30. Thanks again for the help and tips!

 Really like the STB but the gun doesnt feel like a tier X gun. If you can ‘handle’ the atrocious gun handling, its a good tank. From my limited experience, I like it more than the Centax and AMX30b but less than the Patton and object 140.

Even though I seem to really struggle with it (I played it 44 games pre-buff), I do like it, and it is a good tank. I kept the Chi-Ri and STB-1 out that line. Go for it man.

Like others have said, the gun can troll you, but it's back to 3rd in average damage for tierX mediums last 30 days on xbox with middle of the road w/r. Good tank if used properly, tier VIII is OK, and the IX is pretty decent. Plus it's sexy as hell, so it's worth it.

Damn the torpedoes.........full speed ahead!

Chi-Ri Top tier dominator, bottom tier DING DING DING COME FARM ME.

STA-1/2 Worth it

Type 61 Not bad but nothing special

STB-1 Outdated, needs turret cheek buff and engine buff. (Or gun handling buff)

I loved playing this tank simply because it was the unfortunate models always getting destroyed in the old school Toho Godzilla movies. I couldn’t help but hum the “March of the Tanks” music every time. :)

The stb-1 actually has worse effective gun handleing than the derp guns in tier ten. It's similar to the 183 but won't be doing 900 damage on a miss. Get it if you like the design but get prepared for some of the most frustrating misses in the entire universe.

 

If you want a tank that's competitive and has the same playstyle get an M48 or 430. Save yourself the headache of missing 50%+ of your shots.

Taco, my first thought after reading your question was:  IT BETTER BE!:teethhappy:

 

I just started grinding the Tier 9 top package for it, and really didn't pay attention on how much XP you need to get to 10.   Yikes 

 


I'm just saying.....

We have bad news for you. The grind is terminal and won't result in an amazing tank. We're going to leave you now with your family so you can discuss what you want to do together.

We decided to keep the 9 and the 10 both.  And since we both decided it together we are selling the house to pay for both.  :trollface:

Since they removed the premium tank I was about to buy I'm now sitting with a comfy amount of gold to convert some XP with. Is the STB-1 worth the grind? Or what do you recommend?

Is any tier10 really worth grinding? None of them make the game any better...

I really like seeing maus platoons on the red team. It's like a free ace mastery badge. That's sort of an improvement.

I’ve got the fatton and the cax so I don’t really need it, but I’m grinding it out anyway. I’m on the tier 8 right now

I call this tank the 50/50. It either performs amazingly well or trolls you hard but when it’s working for you it becomes the monster it deserves to be. Just wish they would buff the soft stats on the gun handling.
