Meh, i personally play even tier 5 ocassionaly, so lower tiers is certainly not a problem

Is the SU-101 and SU-122-54 that bad anymore? I think that both of them have buffed 3 times lol

Well I used a good crew more. Stole it from my 62a since I was terrible in it. So dank girl crew. I used the 122mm gun on the tier8 because alpha. Tier 9 is playable just be careful it's very lightweight and fast it will skid. Camo/view range are important for these tanks.

SU-100M1 IMHO is OK, you either camp bush like a cyka or you RUSH B LEFT MOUSE DONT STOP. Gun has excellent base accuracy and lightening fast aimtime so don't bother aiming down sights if you are in a "well-balanced" map.

I need advice for 101 however. Heard horror stories before, gonna buy it anyways; which gun to use stock and elite? Do I start as a SU-122-44 with shitty MM, or as a 100M1 with shitty MM? Is the elite 122mm better than the elite 100mm? Optics or GLD?

So we now have what is frontally a T95 (outside of the lfp) that goes 55 kph. Has anyone tried it out? A lot of the tanks that came out/have been rebalanced this patch reek of an intern's drunken number fudging.

I just equipped mine and got some camo on it. I gave up on grinding all the way through the SU-122-54 before the patch broke, so they're still skilled for a camo sniper. I would ASSUME that won't work here, what with the new piss-poor accuracy.

The shitty DPM and VR are gonna hurt, I just know it. ;__;

its pretty much just that, a T95 that goes 55kph and faces tier 7

and the 268 ver 4 is a E3 that goes 50 kph

Jesus Christ. This thing is insane. The gun is crap, so you have to close the distance to hit anything, but the armor is incredible if you can hide the LFP. I've had two or three 4k and 5k blocked games, and it absolutely destroys tier VIIs and Tier VIIIs.

I don't know WHAT they were thinking, but as much as I wanted to try the old Object 263, I can't complain much about the current one.

I want the SU-122-54 back. This thing is fucking junk. People just either snap shot the LFP at any range, spam HEAT through the massive superstructure, or literally shoot HE at you. 

It's like playing a JagTiger that goes fast with (((armour))), but doesn't have the DPM or gun to match. 

Also 300 APCR is a nice meme.

Edit: Playing this trashcan some more has lead me to believe the 122 is the best gun. The extra alpha damage is nice, but having to be point blank to actually hit and being limited to the 300 APCR is so bad. With the 122 at least it's a bit more accurate and the HEAT rounds can dumpster most targets. It reminds me of a really REALLY bad Foch, that trades hard gun stats for stupid soft stats (but who cares about that when you have .39 accuracy).

I kind of like this big beast. 

Engine is important.  It way to slow without it.

 

I dont have upgraded gun or tracks yet, but its so far a funny wagon.  Guess 550 alpha feels great.

Can bounce a lot If you hide your lower front plate . And love to ram soft tanks like Skorpions and su 130pms hehe

Stock engine makes me wanna fire the gun outta its beautiful Soviet arse. It's frustrating. Without mobility the tank just can't avoid getting hit....

Been a while, but thread necro with my review for the Object 263 by an average player in 2022.

Overall it feels like a solid performer in the tier/class, but for me is just lacking something to compete with the best options in the tier/class.

On the plus side: straight-line mobility is excellent for a TD, especially one like this that has armour. The upper hull is very good and stands up to a lot of standard rounds (although obviously not so good against HEAT), so if you can hide the lower plate (face-hugging is a decent option against a lot of opponents) you can tank quite a lot of potential damage. The gun itself is punchy with good penetration and alpha, and handles extremely well (best in class hull dispersion if I recall correctly) so running around and getting the gun on target isn't a problem, encouraging you to stay mobile. Camo isn't awful so it can do a bit of bush work if required.

Then the negatives: final accuracy is pretty bad, so sniping from distance tends to not work out too good, although it's a relatively minor issue. The big problem is the DPM, which is trash, especially for the alpha. Lowest in the tier/class and by a long margin. For comparison, the Jagdtiger which has 10 more alpha, has almost 900 more DPM (about 2.5 shots equivalent), and even something like the WZ111G-FT (also an assault TD) has 750 alpha and about 400 more DPM which is just crazy given it hits much harder. The poor rate of fire is quite noticeable and very frustrating. Hiding the lower plate can be tricky because it has only 6 degrees of gun depression, which also makes hilly areas a bit of an issue. Finally, as is consistent with the other tanks in the tier, the rotation speed is very bad relative to how fast it is in a straight line, meaning knife-fights against mediums or fast heavies are very dangerous.

120 games for me (although grind was done in just under 100 from memory) for 51.67% win rate (it was as bad as 48% at one stage, went on a big losing run at one point), 1,960 average damage with 358 average assist (it is pretty blind).

Decent but just felt it was missing something for it to compete with the Jag and the WZ which I still feel are the best tier 9 TDs that I've played.
