垃圾改動  Garbage Change

 

現階段的IS-6跟T26E4就已經是很離譜的存在了,我們尊重官方的設計,我們接受。

 

但當數據出來的時候,還做這種更動,到底有多想被問候家人?

Give me your account, I'll pad your IS-6 to purple

well.....im quite happy for my is6 right now

 

with armor like that, hope WG not decrease is6 speed, coz its already slow, and im quite satisfied with its armor, with proper angling it can bounce gold ammo

 

when im using is6, almost every one using gold on me :trollface:, but thats ok, coz it got good angling armor .... but strange when im using gold on them, they mad at me:harp:

 

in my opinion, is6 right now, is a good tank, if u can understand how to drive it, and im always play solo with my is6, with good win rate, so no big deal

if WG upgrade the is6 gun it will become a most versatile and deadly tank, and definitely all player will aim to is6 player first and using gold on us:justwait:, and bcoz it was a premium tank, its not deserve a good pen gun i think

im only hoping that WG not decrease is6 speed and if WG generous, WG could u guys plz increase the aiming speed of is6 and make it more accurate, thats all:)

 

well thats my opinon as a is6 driver:child:

There, you said it yourself. IS6 is better than Tiger II but still gets pref mm, by that logic, it should be nerfed LOL :D

But anyway, I think you get the point.

 

 

Tbh the Tiger 2 is probably pretty well balanced with the IS-6 at the moment. It has far more pen and it's high, so it kinda negates the IS-6's "strong" sloped armour = easy pen every time.

 

What my point is, is that it hurts to play it with current tank meta - 112's spamming HEAT and 110's and IS-3's that you have a lot of trouble of penning frontally if played by a good player, O-ho's that you have no chance to pen unless you can flank, and then seeing all the T9's such as E-75's...

 

A bit more pen would be nice IMO!

^yeah, but then you get to bully almost all tier 7 tanks, and the FCM 50t has to use sprem to penetrate you reliably.

Do me a favor WG and buff the KV5 and AMX CDC. KV5 with all the new [Japanese] heavies is just a useless hunk of hit points, it is slower than the [Japanese] heavies and has worse armor than the ONi in tier 7. 167 pen in tier 8 with an inaccurate gun is not acceptable. I have a lot of trouble penning the ONi and OHo with gold rounds in my KV5. The KV5 is way too slow to flank and has no choice but to engage other tanks frontally. The whole point of premium tanks is to grind credits but if I have to use gold rounds all the time, I'm better off using an IS3 with AP rounds to make credits. KV5 just sits there and is a big regret. I would swap it for any other tier 8 premium in the game. At least make the APCR rounds cheaper!

 

The CDC is good on paper but is a useless tank. The tank needs to peek and shoot fast to avoid getting shot back but with the gun's soft stats, it makes it horrible. The bloom is horrendous and means I have to wait quite a long time to get an accurate shot in. The tank can't fend for itself and hurts any team it is in. The new Mutz is a much better tank as it has all the positives of the CDC but is smaller and doesn't get insta-penned by every tank it sees. To make up for the complete lack of armor, the gun needs to handle like the gun on the T62A or similar to redeem it. I should have bought the super pershing FFS.

its about time u give the IS-6 a buff... worst armor, worst gun, worst aim. in short worst prem tier8  tank ever,im getting much bigger credits in my matilda BP a tier5 prem tank. But in my IS6 u can only get high credits when u get lucky having a nice team, i dnt mind if u put IS-6 on tier10 battle as long as it can pen it. But its a good improvement thu!:great:

Do you play the IS-6 while drunk?

Tried it on another account, got purple stats, back when I was a green shitter.

So overpowered it isn't funny. And it's not as if skill and good aiming can defeat it, either.

Won't even be able to HEAT it anymore either, not even on the lower plate.

    I still think it's morally wrong so in fact I'm right.

I've taken mine out for a few runs over the last couple of days. It does feel improved, probably a little too much if anything. Bounce was pretty reliable before, very reliable now.

 

It feels a little slower than what it used to be, though I have been playing a few mediums of late and that could be just me stepping back into the slower tank perhaps. Reload 9.78 sec, I forgot how troll that gun was. Lurvly ;)

 

I'd hardly say it was bad before, don't really understand why they'd buff it, but then I was surprised (pleasantly) to see the T-34-3 buff too.

That's true, it eats T7's. My problem is I always end up being frontline and having to 1v1 IS-3's.

It's not bad, but the gun pen is so sub par when facing other tanks like the IS-3, 110, heck, even the 112 is a challenge to damage when angled with only 175mm of pen.

Lol, I thought you knew. I got it ages ago, back when I was a tomato. That's why the stats suck so bad on it, and at ~530 battles, the stats are past the point of no return :trollface:.

 

Btw, that's a nice recent W/R you got!

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. 

 

Why's this guy getting worked up over nothing? And why are you saying HEAT round on tier 7 122mm will have 275? They're usually listed as 250 while 122mm APCR are 217. You still won't be able to reliable penetrate E 75 from the front, and sure as hell you can't pen VK45B even with 275 frontally. Also, 175 pen is enough to punch their sides.

For those who still ask for more buff on IS-6

please answer this question by the noob yoshii_minami which is a freaking red player. 

"now explain what should I do if i'm using tier 6 tanks, my tier 8 tanks are already dead and I see IS-6 in front of me, not to mention he's top tier, and there's no arty to mess him up"

 

you guys, seriously. the buff on IS-6 is so damn good already. even before the buff, the tank is already good. If u guys want to ask for more, create a whole new game by yourself

Tier 6 tanks are not supposed to kill full HP tier 8 tanks \. That's why they are placed lower tier . Don't u think?

nope, I'm a noob, I don't think.
I'll just use HE shells and let him laugh at me.

Like hell.

Of course I give that a thought already.

don't ask for something obvious like that.

Oh wait, I'm a useless noob red player, all u said are true and IS-6 need to be buffed since it is so horrible. 175mm gun penetration and even the gold rounds is not enough for penetrating the hardest spot of tier 6-7-8 tanks (even though u mostly meet tier 6 and 7 more than tier 9)
