I've noticed a lot of well-known WoT players have flat-out dismissed the Swedish TDs entirely, due to the poor firepower, armor and meh mobility, as well as the "siege mode" in the high tier TDs being of limited usage and more a liability to the tank in certain situations. I had a sinking feeling that the Swedish TDs may not do so well (and WG probably knows this) with the introduction of the whole X-mas tree decoration shenanigans that includes giving a discount price of the Swedish TDs all the way up to tier X, as some form of incentive along with the girl crew (though I suspect they'll be trained in the HT line instead) Time will tell (along with what statistics WG gathers on the Swedish TDs) on how well received the Swedish TD will be. But for now i'm curious to get some people's opinion on this. Atm i haven't even touched the tier II, as i'm trying to invest my time in other tanks atm (for grinding and farming)
I'd debated making a thread with some replays simply because... My playstyle is extremely boring to the majority. Hardcore camping with camo and vision abuse, late game cleanup is the usual style. Plus I tend to focus strictly on the Tank Destroyer line so that also doesn't make for an exciting game all the time. I've been uploading a few more of light tanks as I try to branch out and learn the intricacies. Best way to defeat an opponent is knowing what their tank can do after all. Some games in the T28 Prototype. Nothing spectacular but a few good shots early on and a lucky shot on the enemy SU-152 near the end allowed me to go one on one with the enemy T28 Prototype Another decent game. To be honest I rage sold this tank and the T28 at one point, but that was before I had the time, patience, and free XP to unlock the top guns on them. Really makes a difference and made me remember why I should have a bit of patience. JPZE100 game. I wasted way too much time in the middle. But I tend to go there in the beginning in case of a bridge rush or a push through the basin. Doesn't happen often but I've seen enough games where an unexpected heavy push from those locations have made for a bad time. Once I had enough of doing nothing for the beginning part of the game I drew back and went Ice Road in an attempt to reinforce, but misjudged my speed pretty badly and got there just in time for the last of the team to fall. I had some amazing artillery support though that carried me The infamous Churchill Gun Carrier. I did a 100 game challenge on it a long time ago just to see how bad it was and it kind of grew on me. Gun's pretty good but that's about all it has going for it. But it fit's my playstyle quite well and when you couple that with the general lack of fear and the majority of players who do not know what it's capable of it allows you to sometimes surprise people. I'll consolidate my GC replays into the tags under here Next up will be a bunch of replays from the Borsig. This tank grew on me so much that even though I'm well past it and have the WTF100 I bought it back just for fun. But it seems to be a trend with me in the sense that all 3 of the German Tier 8 TD's are fun for me to play. This replays are the epitome of my camping playstyle, but they also include some pretty good examples of camo abuse that this tank is capable of. First game out in the Borsig with some pretty spectacular results. Nearly lost us this game by being kill greedy and going to hunt the last enemy instead of capping. If I hadn't gotten lucky and that last tank had gone back to his base I wouldn't have been able to cap in time and would have gotten the draw instead A game that mainly just highlights the accuracy that the Borsig is capable of when things work in your favor. A game where it didn't work out well for me in the beginning, but the low profile allowed me to take cover in a rather unorthodox position and hold off the enemy And a loss game where I was doing my best as a passive spotter A few decent games to display the speed and the armor capabilities of the Jagdpanther II. That TD is quickly surpassing my Ferdinand as favorite German Tier 8. Now we get to the Obj 704. This is another one of those tanks I just love to play, the BL10, while not very accurate from time to time makes up for it in glorious, huge numbers. This one... Yeah it's bad. Just skip to 5:00 in if you watch it and save yourself boring hardcore camping even by my standards. Only thing I can think of while watching this replay is it must have been a Thursday game. Thursday is my "Tanking while Intoxicated" night and I either camp worse then normal or run in guns blazing and die quickly lol This isn't really a good game, however I uploaded it just to demonstrate where you should not shoot a Obj. 704. Found a nice little spot where pretty much the only portion of the TD exposed was the mantlet. So while not an impressive game damage wise, I did manage to block an impressive 2,800 or so damage due to the mantlet absorbing it And last but not least for the 704, a good 6k damage plus game. And I'll just leave these last videos here as a link dump kind of. Random games, me trying to scout, etc. Boring artillery play but managed to shoot the last enemy, with my last shell, as he was trying to goomba stomp. (13:58 into the video for an almost epic failure lol) M41 Lucky win Jtiger 88 and regular Jtiger bullying Pretty spectacular, stuck in a ditch fail on my AMX MLE 48 Some E75 Gameplay and angling (Heavies I seem to do well with sometimes)
