IS-2 is a great tank to grind credits.

Aha! You advertised for WG for free, huh? Tier for tier and dollar for dollar, is IS-2 a better "investment" than IS-6?

Well, it is Russian IS-2 tank. If you like regular IS and doing well on it you will doing well in IS-2 Berlin too.

 

It certainly cheaper alternative for IS-6, but if its better investment, dunno.


Back to World of Tanks for now.

Wow, your response is very fast! That's the way I like it. +1 to your reputation. I got IS-6 not too long ago and Winston Churchill 3 way back in 2014. So I don't need another premium Russian sibling in my family.

 

BTW, whether it's cheap or expensive is rather relative. For instance, to a minimum wage earner who lives in a rural province such as East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia, USD 34.62 (does it include GST?) is a whopping 37% of his monthly income, holy mama!

If we looking from that perspective, it is.

 

But if we compare current IS-2 Berlin Bundle to IS-6, it definitely cheaper.

With IDR 463K you get an IS-2 Berlin, 100% Crew+BiA and 2700 gold, while normally an IS-6 cost around IDR 665K (currently it discounted to IDR 563K) and... thats it. The bonus on IS-2 Berlin is quite significant. Well, i know i am comparing a tier 7 premium to tier 8 premium, but If you want something more higher tier than Churchill III and your money kinda tight for IS-6, then maybe IS-2 Berlin could be considered.

Wow a russian bias premium tank with a higher tier gun than the tank itself, how novel.

Does it also get pref mm, or perhaps 1 battle in 20 at tier 9?.

 

Meanwhile in my Panther HH...

If I ain't wrong, it doesn't enjoy the pref MM treatment like IS-6 and hence it's mounted with a more powerful gun. As to the probability of it seeing tier 9, I can't answer since I don't own it so far.

I see tier 8 and 9 in IS-2 Berlin.

Can't remember how often but certainly not mere 1 in 20.

Right. 1 in 20 is just 5%. Impossible. I would publish the actual frequency over time randomly IF I own it.

This is very tempting but I have got already the IS 6 which is a fantastic workhorse but I the IS 2 has a lot of historic value.  At the moment I am pretty much fighting with myself if I should get full bundle or just the Cromwell B because I want to play the Strongholds and the Cromwell B looks cool and is a good tank

I am torn because I would like to get the Cromwell Berlin as first priority but the IS2 but on the other hand I have already got the IS6 which I like very much

If you have got IS-6, get Cromwell B. Cromwell/B is one of the most preferred MT in T6 skirmishes. Seen pretty often in SH.
