I just want to start of by saying I actually REALLY enjoyed playing this tank. (Bet you didn't expect that eh?) When I first got it I was like, oh god this tank is gonna be terrible and it was. Until I got that final gun. Lol once I got this thing I was like f it, this thing doesn't have good camo anyway so Ima just go in balls deep. That's how I played this tank game after game always at the front line in almost every game and I did better than when I tried to play passively.

 

Granted I'm a much better player when I can play an up-tempo style of game rather then a slow and dull one. Yea sure this tank is slow as molasses, but I drove a T-95 and TOG so I can deal with the speed. So I figured if I found this tank so much fun to play I'm just going to have oodles of fun with the Borsig lol.

 

Anyway if anyone is struggling with the Sturer Emil maybe try a different approach, although aggressive play isn't everyones strong suit, it is surprisingly really effective with this tank due to the powerful gun. If you take your shots when enemies aren't looking at you and eliminate the ones you know you can that will only cost you one hit I'm sure you will see dramatic improvements.

 

Or I could just be weird anywho, happy tanking.

I'm pretty close to getting that last gun myself. I've been holding out hope that it would be this tank's saving grace for me as I've not really enjoyed the ride so far.

I've experienced worse tanks, B1, but this tank is the weakest in this line. It's too slow and has inadequate armor. Yes, the last gun is fun, but there was a reason the Germans called it a Stubborn Emil. 

Just wait till you get the Borsig. That tank is ready right away to deal some pain.

I loved my sturer emil when i played it,but the stock gun was just not good enough.I free exp'd to the top gun.Having a 128mm gun at tier 7 can be devastating for tier 7s and lower you will face.I did very well in it,it just gets a bad wrap for its poor armor and weak stock gun.For me overall it was a great TD

It's a tier 7 with a friggen 128.

 

Loved this thing, completely craps on other tier 7's with that alpha.

Good tank just suffers in the enjoyment department due to its low ammo and terrible mobility. I still call it the Syphilis bus regardless.

I cried my way through the whole sturer experience, even spent actual money to skip ahead to the last package! And even then I was disappointed. Yes the damage was good, but I found it frustratingly inaccurate at times. Not to mention bouncing off M4's and such from relatively close range. I guess you have to go through some sort of purgatory before ascending to the awesome Borsig.
