My experience with SU-100 and SU-100Y  suggests that "damage isn't everything" when it comes to carrying and winning games. There is no doubt that SU-100Y can do massive damage, my 30-day stats shows that for DR/KDR/Damage SU-100Y > SU-100. The problem is that when it comes down to the wire in the endgame, whether its 1 v 2, 1 v 3, or 2 v 3, SU-100y is really too slow, too easily spotted, to carry the team.

 

In a tense endgame, eg: 2 v 4, SU-100Y would appreciate cover from your remaining team member but you know its not going to happen. And SU-100Y is not fast enough to move to protect your remaining team member and is sort of stuck in position. So what happens is that your team member goes and yolo by himself and dies, leaving you to be circled by enemy team.

 

On the other hand SU-100 has better camo and maneuverability and is able to become a medium tank in a tense endgame and fight together with whoever else is remaining in your team. This makes all the difference in winrate. I might even go so far as to say that SU-100 is one of the top tier 6 tanks in the current meta, especially with the nerfing of various LTs that could circle the su-100 (Leo, Vk28, amx12t.. all nerfed).

I like SU100Y, but rarely play it these days.  The fast tank meta has passed it by.

 

SU100, on the other hand, has seen the game come to it - mobile, with a good gun.  I prefer it with the 100mm gun, I find it more effective.  I especially like it when mediums try to circle you, but you turn with them and keep hitting them for 280 average as fast as they can reload.

Winrate is also hugely influenced by luck with that few battles. It'll always even out but takes hundreds or thousands of battles to do it

The SU-100 is a commonly ignored TankDestroyer that people ignore. That, however, is a great mistake in my opinion.

The SU-100, especially with the 122mm gun, is a dreaded sniper which can also be used the same way as a medium tank, with a good mix of Armor (although not much) and better speed than any other tier 6 tank. The SU-100 is a tank worth grinding for, and I hope that I'll see even more of them in the future :)
