    Personally, yeah.  Vents/Vstab/Optics + Cola is what i'm currently running and I've never thought to myself "Gee i would much rather have a 1.8 second faster reload instead of being able to outspot enemy light tanks at 400m+".
     
    I've found that counter-scouting by simply popping their sixth sense and making them break off before they can spot any of my dudes (or me) is far more effective than having to use my gun to do it.

    Why cuck yourself with possible driver issues/lack of RAM support/etc when you have an already capable CPU.
    Literally OC the 8700k and I doubt 2700x will be able to outperform barring  heavily multi-threaded apps.

    Possibly near the end, but that allowed me to stay alive with the HP I needed to win. Id rather sacrifice others in a pub so that I can still win it, than put my tank on the line and possibly lose. Competition and platooning allow communication, so we're able to focus and support. Pubbies wont/cant make the plays your friends would

    I swear, I didn't read your comment before titling this.
    Describes the OP's question quite well, actually. Stayed somewhat defensive, as in I tried to never trade 1 for 1. But, I was taking every opportunistic shot I could while never allowing myself to be full exposed and isolated to multiple enemies

    I personally like to watch @BigCheese256's youtube channel when it comes to aiming: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCOyXOlpFQB2W2orgaSFoubA
    Look at how he uses 3rd person to minimize exposure, and to get quicker snap shots. When I first came across his content, it blew me away from a pure mechanical stand point

    There are 'Heat Maps' which will show where most of the action takes place. Then, use your experience you gain with playing the game to realize which angles feed into those spots, and where are the biggest and thickest booshes.

    Watched Skill4ltu play it a bit. 
    The tank is better top tier (3/5/7) than 50-100 or lorr 40t because of the amount of bullying possible to lower tier. But 40t is better low tier than Somua because armor is just meaningless once you find higher pens guns.

    Also, while i'm here @Never, do you have any idea why my spoiler tags are fucked?  I could only ever have one spoiler tag, everything that came after it would nest in the initial one if there were any line breaks at all, which meant no embedding gifs in different spoiler tags for each one since gfycat embeds automatically add line breaks that can't be deleted

    That new Swedish Tank
    Finally, new content! And, this nation is going to be pretty unique. Wargaming will soon be releasing two lines of Swedish tanks, and started with the Strv m/45-57 (This tank seriously needs a usable nick-name, cause that’s a pain to constantly type out!). A tier 6 auto-loader with standard matchmaking but premium credit earning and crew training, I recently was gifted this tank to review and display, and will be available for gold in your garage probably for about 3700 gold in patch 9.17. So, without further ado, let's get going!
     
    Crew
     
    This tank has three crew members, a Commander (also the Radio Operator and Loader), the gunner (also the loader) and a driver. Because there’s only three crew members and it’s a premium tank, I was quickly able to use a 200% crew EXP bonus and a 100% EXP bonus personal reserves over 4 hours of play to get a few basic crew skills started. I did free EXP 6th sense on the commander, as this skill is vitally important to survival in an auto-loader without armor. Currently, my crew is being trained as such;

    Commander: 6th, Camo, Repairs*
    Gunner: Camo, Repairs Snapshot*
    Driver: Camo, Repairs, Smooth Ride*
    (* indicates this is the plan, as my crew is currently about 60% on its 2nd crew skill)
     
    Loadout
     
    Your standard ammo (Armor Penetrating, ‘AP’) has 148mm penetration, which is quite good for a tier 6 Medium Tank. Your premium ammo, (Armor penetrating, Composite Rigid ‘APCR’) has 190mm penetrating power, which is good as well. Neither round is over or under-powered, which is quite nice when it comes to both a premium tank or even a standard tank. Generally, I run with about 60% AP, and 40% APCR. I do not carry any High Explosive (HE). This works out to about 32 AP, and 28 APCR.
     
    Equipment
     
    Equipment is pretty straight forward. Until you have a highly skilled crew with vision skills, I recommend using Binoculars, Vents, and a Gun laying Drive. Eventually, with a highly skilled I would change the Binocs for Coated Optics. You’re unable to use a Vertical Stabilizer or a Gun Rammer.
    Consumables
    Like Equipment, consumables can be pretty straight forward as well. I use a small med pack, a small repair pack, and an auto extinguisher. The profitability is just good enough that you could drop the Auto-Ext for Food, and still make 5k to 15k credits profit with a premium account.
     
    Armor
     
    Sometimes, you can pretend that you’re a jedi and block rounds with your gun, or your tracks can absorb some rounds. Other than that? Yeah, you don’t have any armor. Your best armor is excellent positioning without trading hit points.
     
    The Good, the Average, the Bad
     
    The Good:
    You’re an Auto-Loader with a 2 second intra-clip reload, dumping 600 damage in 6 seconds
    Aim-Time between shells allows for easily dumping your drum (Base 2.3seconds)
    Overall Accuracy of the gun allows for sniping in the early game (Base .35 dispersion at 100m)
    The Average:
    700 Hit Points is lower for a tier 6 Medium Tank, but is keeping in trend with other autoloaders having less HP than other tanks in its tier
    16 seconds drum reload time is alright when you’re not being pushed
    Mobility is underwhelming
    Camo feels very average
    The Bad:
    Your armor can be overmatched in some locations by essentially any gun you’ll face regardless of Matchmaking
    Getting rushed early will render your tank almost useless the remainder of that match, if not dead.
    If you’re not careful about exposing the front of your tank, your engine will be constantly knocked out
    Hits to the turret will often damage your gun
     
    Playstyle
     
    If you’re a fan of the BatChat 25t or 25t AP, you will love this tank. The key difference, however, is that those tanks have the ability to clip out the entire HP of an enemy tank. Early game, position in a location that your gun is in the fight, but where you’ll have support if you’re rushed. Getting into a 1v1 situation early in the game should be avoided if at all possible, as you will not be able to clip out tanks of equal tier before dying. Preserve your HP, and at the end of the game your tank will become stronger. Generally, most of your damage will come in the last 40% of a battle, while the first 60% of it you’ll spend it supporting other tanks or punishing tanks really out of position
     
    Replays
     
    Verdict

    The Strv m/42-57 is a well balanced tank. The fact that it’s a premium in this case is simply a bonus. While the Rudy, T34-85, or Cromwell are the standard bearers for this tier and tank type, this tank is a solid addition to the tech tree. I would rate it a 6.5 out of 10, and worth the gold.

    Here are two VOD's (not mine, just to clarify ) of a 100 games with 5150 avg dmg, 76% WR and 3 marks after 96 IIRC, in case anyone's interested. They are 8 and 5 hours long so probably not something you want to watch whole.

    TheMarine0341 reacted to Fabunil in Object 268 version WTF were they thinking?   
    Once upon a time a man named Murazar once saw a high damage replay on youtube where a retard yolorushes a bunch of imbeciles in a 263.
    The following night he had a wet dream, a brilliant idea for a new great addition to the game that is called World of Tanks.
    He was he went to work on it soon after and turned his wet dream into reality but alas, as zealously as he was he wasn't a very smart man.
