I was going to say give it a go , BUT..

I'm glad have not bought any upgrades or put in a crew the Stuig 33.

Selling it ASAP when I unlock the Brum.

I don't think I'll go past Tier 6.

 

 

You'll want the Tier 7, but don't go further. I sold my ISU-152 yesterday as the Sturmpanzer does what ISU-152 can do but does suffer with 203 pen.

The tier V StuiG 33 managed to sap my will to live in only three games with it. I think bouncing a point blank shot with the HEAT shell straight into the rear of a KV-1 was the last straw. 

 

If you think that's bad, wait for the Bar which is potentially the worst tank in the game. Yeah bouncing HEAT sucks, I used HE only when i played mine. I did use 15k Free XP to Upgrade it from the off though.

Derp is definitely back in the game. :great:

 

Yep it is. Tier 5 is meh, Tier 6 is good with HEAT (Not so good with HE), Tier 7 is great, Heard bad things with Tier 8, Tier 9 is the worst in the line (Skip it), and i have mixed feelings on Sturmtiger.

I'm farming CW to get a refund.

It's only my complete lack of talent that stops me from being an average player.

I think bar is statistically one of the worst tanks in the game LOL. It is currently marking at the bottom of t9 below all the arty LOL at 2500 combined damage. I sense major buffs incoming LOL.

lol yeah, it needs some gun depression but due to the model, not sure if it can be done, Needs more gun arc as well. Only other alternative is to turn it into an HE Gun and hope Splash does it's thing.

Not sure how you would without killing the driver or setting yourself on fire from the blast everytime you aimed down. :trollface:

 

Props to Joco and Tempest for the wise words. Looks like I'm on GoW5 this weekend. Mrs Red will be pleased

I don't think any tank should have less than 5 degrees. Any less is just painful to play. Even if it means the model clips into the hull a bit. 

 

It's not like 5 degrees gun depression is good, just not totally unworkable.

They don't look to be outperforming from what I've seen so far. Yeah seen a couple in higher tier games pull some 4k games but they still lost. I keep seeing them getting outspotted or at least acting like they're perma spotted and not reacting to me when I'm spotted - Do they have poor view range?

 

The Tier 7 looks memey but there's no way I'm playing through the line, they look like a dreadful experience

 

I can tell you we get out spotted all the time, especially in the tier 9 Bar.  I have an excellent crew with Recon and Situation awareness and shells come flying in from every direction and I can't see a daum thing on who is firing. I also have the tier X SturmTiger and while it has better mobility than tier 8 and 9 it has still get's out spotted.  The tier 9 tank I can be looking at right at a heavy but can't hit because of the lower profiles they have and 0 gun depression for me so I have to just sit there and take it in the face and [edited]all game.  I can't figure out the right way to play this thing either sit back and miss all action or roll in blind and getting taken out by Arties and low profile any type of tanks.

370m view range on the bar. The m4 at t5 has 370m view range. The entire line is blind apart from the sturmtiger itself.

If you think the Sturmtiger line is bad now, just wait another month.  By then less players will be playing them and going back to tanks with vastly better mobility.  Once the meta is back to normal, these new TD's really won't be able to hit anything.  Right now they can at least target each other as they waddle around.

the only one so far that has been horrid is the T IX Bar, outside of that its been a fun and serviceable live. 6&7 feel especially fun. no T X yet but once im done with the Bar will give it a go... the Bar needs some tweaking its been a bit since a tank has been this rough out the gate, but better than being OP

probably controversial opinion, but I feel the gun damage values should be moved down one caliber (IE the 1300/1700 damage stats are on the 9's 30.5cm, the 1100/1400 are on the 8,  maybe a little less here like 950, and the 770 is on the 7).

 

Strong? sure.  One shotting more than 15% of tanks? no, not really.  The problem is we have stuff like the ISU152 and whatnot that do some much damage at their tiers anyway these guns are just super underwhelming in the meta.
