Degrading accuracy as you go from the UDES to the 9 and 10 only makes sense to me as a means of balancing out the very high base pen.

 

Otherwise...why?

My major complaint is the camo on it is broken and its too slow. Change my mind.

Dont grind the STRV103-O. The “O” is in reference to that alien character on the movie “Home” that everyone avoided. The STRV tier 10 is not great. Tier 8 is really good, then 9 and 10….. O you got one of those? Sorry what a waste of time

 

I somewhat disagree, the 103B is mobile enough to work. It's far from great though, probably missing camo net & scopes to work as well as pre-Downgrade 6.0.

Tier X I sold:

- FV215 (No point: Super Conqueror)

- Grille 15 (Camo sucks for a soft TD)

- T-62 (No point: Object 140)

- Chieftain (Too slow; I bought it back last month, it's very good after the buff.)

- WTE100 (Reload too slow; I bought it back after the nerf, it's somewhat working with the shorter reload.)

 

I might sell in the future:

- K-91 (Don't see the point, but too few games to be sure)

- WZ-121B (By far the worst scout at tier X)

I will admit, A good player can be very effective with it. STRV103-O is a dangerous machine in good hands and in the right conditions. Its just a let down from T8 on. I expected it to maintain maneuverability and stealth. Which it doesn't. So you get increased pen. But anyone can spot you and you cant get away

I wasn't talking about the -0. You are right on this one, it really is a barrel of dung.

I just unlocked and bought the Manticore. A week or two ago I unlocked and bought the AMX 13 105. I thought the GSOR was quite good, and likewise the AMX 13 90 was enjoyable. 

 

Seems logical that the Tier X should be more enjoyable, but that is not the case so far. The rate of fire on the Manticore is way too slow. AMX 13 105 is strangely hard to maneuver. Neither tank's predecessor had such flaws. I have very little experience still. But it's just strange to feel like you downgraded when you upgraded.

 

Since the Manticore was intended to be a tank destroyer I’ve played mine like one.  It’s stealthy enough to dance around and shoot up things from range and then move while reloading while not being spotted. 

I don’t know how to act my age! I’ve never been this old before!

Exactly how I am playing the stingray. It needs more ammo. 32 rounds is not enough when most tanks have a 3000hp pool.


Why bother anymore

The more I play the Manticore, the more I get used to it and the better I play. 

 

AMX 13 105 remains a WIP.
