Is STRV 103B OP?

Postby v-snejok » Wed 26 Jun 2013 19:36

Hi all, I dont know, but It seems like STRW is OP for its cost of 60. It has very good RoF, can kill tanks (I killed 2 t80u with my strv tanks in ranked 1v1), it kills bmpt very easy, and infantry cant do nothing to in, strv kills them even in forest. It seems more powerful then BMPT, but cost cheaper, why? Its musthave unit now, need fix the price or RoF.

It has AP 12, if you got your T80u killed by them its either luck or you just simply didnt scout/protect it properly, either that or you went against a Creed.

Not to forget 12 armour front, if they got close enough to pen your front you should be 1 shotting them.

Armor bug allows 103B to take on T80 at close range because T80 only does one damage per shot. I'm sure it'll be fixed at some point.
Anecdotes do not count for game balance.

I killed t80u, I was playing NATO) Also I kill 3 or 4 BMPT's with 2 strv and kill infantry!

Ok i misread that bit then, but yeah, this thing needs to get to within what, just over 1km to pen the front of a T80u? these guys are defencive tanks, attacking it close in isnt the best idea really and i wouldnt say its OP, its slow, lightly armoured and no turret, its fairly well balanced to cost in my view.

It's a very good tank but it's a defensive one, since it can't shoot on the move (due to the gun always pointing forward).

I have them in several decks, but they aren't stellar. If you want to attack something with them, you need to "leapfrog", AKA "move half of your force, stop, move the other half, etc...

I don't think so. Compare it to the Chieftain mk 10, which is better in almost every way (in some ways a lot better) for only 5 points more. The rate of fire is really the only thing the 103 has going for it, since its AP, armor and offensive capabilities are rather lacking. It's great in forests, sure, but that's a pretty niche role.

It's not the 103B it is all units here is the exact same thing but the leo 4

But this was a while ago may have been fixed and even if it has not been fixed you must be very very close. I think under 350m

I am not so sure about there effectiveness in woods as they often have to do small turns to be able to shoot the enemy giving them time to kill it. Also it does not have good side armor

they are very useful at medium to short range (1KM) where their armor and AP disadvantages are lessened and numbers and RoF rule the day, but for anything else their use are limited.
