I think you should elaborate a little bit about what exactly you mean.

With this unbelanced patch for german tanks, the stug sucks and the panther like the stug before this patch

summary(IMHO): now soviets can spam infantry with powerful and cheap tanks without dangers

i disagree. the stug is less powerful so it's not the only good t3 tank. now stug is t3 AT, ostwind is t3 anti inf, p4 is versatile.

panther is no longer god unit, it requires you not to lose ur infantry or ur t3 units. if you use it as combined arms with the rest of ur army it is still great unit. it also costs less than b4.

as a german player, i like the changes to both fractions

What are people crying about now? I just used a Panther yesterday to kill an AT gun, 2 infantry squads, 3 mortars, 1 T-34 all with taking less than 50% damage (by itself, no other support). The other played even said "omg its a panther" in chat. I was laughing.

The StuG was downgraded to a point where the SU-85 can rightfully kill it. This is good.

It can still solo ISU-152s and do serious damage to IS-2s, but SU-85s will eat the StuG alive. Take this to be a hint as to the correct function of the StuG, a source of AT damage capable of dispatching lighter and medium vehicles with relative ease and cost-effectiveness. It is also (in the process of) becoming a source of Anti-Infantry damage, as it received the ability to do damage to Garrisons, not just the building/vehicle itself.
