I've been out of WoT for a couple years because i got bored with it, came back and saw this new IS-3A (which looks like it makes the IS-6 99% redundant but i guess WG need to make money somehow). I'd have thought there'd be swarms of IS-3As in every tier 8+ game cause it looks like the ultimate easymode prem tank, but there aren't many around. Did you have to do something special to get it, and will it be back for sale at some point? (couldn't find much on the wiki).

I gonna guess its because its expensive. First time it get introduced, it's offered with US$80 bundle. More than your IS-6 price. Next time they offer it again, its not get cheaper that much.

IS-6 is cheaper, only sees tier 9 max (IS-3A get regular MM), and now its armor get buffed to be ultimate easymode premium.


Back to World of Tanks for now.

tbh still doesnt compare though. I got a lot of 0-500dmg game in is3a when get clicked by tier 10 arty xvm focus and my avg dmg is still very close to my is6's avg dmg.. Is3a when top tier just dominates and its not even funny

As for it making a return I guess they will be putting it on sale once a year in a special bundle, or maybe not since they have put usually 2 different offers in prem store. One with bundle and one without. But tbh the best credit maker afaik is still fcm, so go for that unless you want to collect a rare tonk..

They sold it twice at Christmas and again at Easter.

I know cos at Christmas I thought what a ripoff and at Easter I bought one anyway. No regrets. Its op as far as premiums go.

I have the fcm but i cant really get it to work for me (not much of a med player). Is the 3A's better performance in tier 8 and 9 worth getting the occasional tier 10 game?

I cant really say its worth it over fcm, but definitely yes over is6. Kaizerr btw is much better than me which struggle to get past 91% moe :( so you should get better opinion from him. One thing for sure is the is3a is pretty slow to accelerate and had potato gun handling so you have to get used to it..
