175 Pen with poor gun handling is pretty anemic for a tier 8 heavy. If it wasn't for HoS shell guidance brought to you by Russian Bias™ people would probably complain more.

WG will just do whatever is needed to keep us on the gerbil wheel. Logic is just the beef they put on the pill to make the dog swallow it.

Overpowered, seeing that it gets APCR prem rounds.

Give it HEAT of similar pen and it'll be balanced.

    I total agree with you about that. I have IS6, it is terrible for me went facing with tier 9 HT like E75 or VK 45B. I regular pick APRC but it still not help much even with penetrating their side armor. I have bought IS 6 with the hope of having a reliable tank but now it is difficult to me to play it. Every match i have to pray enemy have less HT and facing with their Med :P.

  Give it better gun with higher penetration it could be make it balance in the game. At least give it premium round with higher penetration same like 112.

If it was just a bit faster it would be OP as hell to be fair

:P 

 

Which is what the IS-6 will be next patch.

If you run pure APCR, it's arguably better than even the IS-3 due to the extra DPM.

I want the original pen of IS-6 - 216 pen of AP

Buffing the T110E5's armor, and then saying sorry, it was a mistake.

Buffing the IS-6's armor INTENTIONALLY.

Did they not learn their lesson?

Probably did, but intended for the IS-6, already the best tier 8 perm, and make it even better!

That was the entire point?

The armor buff makes it a better SP, that is faster, has more reliable armor, an APCR round that does more damage. Only has worse bloom and aim.

 

APCR round doest do more damage. please go learn about APCR vs HEAT. in fact HEAT on WZ111 has better penetration value than IS6 APCR.

I was thinking of keeping it's mm +1 and buffing the pen just a bit. Heck, the FCM has 212 pen and that only gets +1... 

fcm doesnt have armor and lower alpha.. it is balance against is6.

Serious :P

 

Ever faced a competent IS-3 driver in an IS-6? There's just no competition there. IS-3 wins hands down every time - 225 AP pen on the IS-3 completely rips apart IS-6's. If you're really lazy just load gold and it's an insta-win :P

 

if u know how to drive an is6, it will kill is3, faster...is6 reloading is slightly faster, take advantage of it, and APCR pen is3 every single time.. no excuse is6 will lose to is3.. i have 3k game on it..

... but it's HEAT, which means that unless you're shooting at something flat, it's unreliable. I own the IS-6, 112 and WZ-111 and I vastly prefer the IS-6 for armour  reliability, and because APCR is better than HEAT any day.

The fact that the tank's being buffed in the HD model will make what is already a troll-like tank more annoying than ever... which is fine because I own one. :P

Thank you for buffing my favorite Tier 8 Prem Tank and releasing endless glass T8 medium tanks for me to target. GG wargaming, please remove it from the shop now.

 

Here is an idea, please make a Superheavy Tier 8 like the [Japanese] tanks with that Derpy HE monster gun . Id pay money for that and we dont have any HE firing Prem Tanks.

Should have kept IS-6 the way it is. No buffs required, borderline OP the way I see it.

Which is why I suggest making the IS-6's perm round HEAT instead of APCR if the armor buff were to happen.

" Armour protection of the lowermost section of the lower glacis plate has decreased, because the previous version of the glacis plate was "broken" into sections. Now, it has the same slop angle, and consequently, the same effective armour thickness across the whole plate." What does it mean ? :ohmy:

IS6 GUN IS TIER7 175 PEN STANDARD AP GIVE IT HEAT ROUND 275 I WILL PLAY MORE CAUSE IT IS EASIER TO HANDLE E75 OR VK45B .. APCR CANT PEN THEM AT ALL.
