Hi there 

 

I just recently decided to re-roll my stats as my old account was horrible, I am in no way a good player though. I was just thinking as a I recently bought an IS6 for playing with my friends, could a slight pen buff work. Maybe increase standard pen to 200, this in my opinion would still make you aim for weak spots but actually be able to pen them instead of not being able to with the 175 pen at the moment. The premium pen in my opinion should only be 220. I know the IS6 can be a beast in the right hands but with the introduction of new premiums such as the Defender and Chrysler K the gun is just not competitive. I do not think any gun handling stats need to be changed or amour changes either.

Standard to 200 and normal MM could work. Tho closer to 220 would be more in keeping with the others.

220 so you can actually pen the unangled bottom of Chrysler and Defender

Defender / Chrysler and SoS / BiA compatibility, the two biggest middle fingers to long-time players

Standard pen at 220 would make it overpowered in my opinion.

200 pen with preferential mm is still not fantastic, at 220 though thing would juts be far to good. The amour on it is insane if angled correctly.

Hence regular MM.

 

Noting there are a whole raft of pref mm heavies with the same gun so the change would likely need to be across the board. Further WG have mentioned they don't like pref MM (despite selling tanks with it... because moonbase) so buffing pen for all the pref MM tanks then giving them normal MM would be a cheap and dirty way to achieve that.

I have a better idea

 

Make a tier 9 prem with preferential MM (Does not see tier 11 battles)

 

GIve it a gun like a pref MM tank would have i.e. top gun of a tier 8

 

THEN LET IT ENTER TIER 8 BATTLES MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

I guess so, but then would current gun handling characteristics work in teir 10 matches, the poor accuracy would make it useless for sitting behind your top teir heavies. However wouldn't buffing the gun handling stats would make it kind of op in top teir or even teir 9 matches.

Even with premium rounds at 217 pen its still like many other tier 8 heavies going to be hard pressed against the upcoming Chrysler K and the Defender.

I realise it... but my point is, the 2 key is one of the WG's way to build their moonbase.

the K GF and defender aren't upcoming anymore. defender released about a couple of months ago, and the K GF just released yesterday and now still on sale

It makes me laugh alittle when you talk about buffing an IS6 when the poor KV5 still only has 167 pen. Get in line son, KV-5 first.

 

Although the real question is, Why we need to buff tanks when a new premiums are released. Just don't release better premiums day after day, that outclass standard tanks of the same tier.

I guess so but I am talking about the IS6 here not the KV 5.

Isn't KV-5 default ammo 219 pen?

Because the moonarsbase won't fund itself

Solution, let's buff the premium ammo. It's time for the Chrysler K treatment and give it 15 extra gold penetration compared to the exact same tech tree gun.
