I reckon tanks have an offensive and defensive task to do each battle.

 

Doing damage is very important, but I also think that bouncing damage is important for the team as well. From a mathematical point of view, you start a snowball when your team has more potential to damage the enemy than they do. You can achieve this by killing a tank, or making some of his fire ineffective.

 

If you are consistently bouncing enemy tanks, you have effectively taken their guns out of the game. Every shot you bounce is potential damage which your team does not have to face. This is less important if you only have one tank shooting at you.

 

And if you have held up a flank then bouncing for a while so your team can get an overmatch somewhere else might be exactly the right thing to do.

 

But overall you do have to deal damage, you can not win this game on points.

 

Just noticed this. Where are you going in your IS7 on Minsk, Puggs?

If someone could just hurry up and end me that would be wonderful.

Seriously, just do it, you'd be doing me a favour.

I've had a few battles working that middle road ridge (for some bouncing missions) and will go there if there is no arty cause its just fun hearing that bounce noise. 

 

Otherwise I've had a fair bit of success going across the water and into the hilltop town for a hard push. If you have a few teammates come with you its really easy to isolate tanks and focus fire them down. Having a TX ht there seems to encourage them to get stuck in. Once you win there its relatively easy to clean up the city, or push back to help the tanks holding the city if they are struggling.

 

TBH winning on the hill seems to be the only place which I've seen allow a fast push to work.

IS-7 is still fairly idiot proof. You're not losing out if you go for both.

IS-7 is absolute trash and needs AP pen buff and HEAT instead of APCR. I have played more than 3,000 games in IS-7 and to do good in it requires spamming a full APCR load out to stand a chance at doing damage. But even then. You struggle to pen super heavies.

What's your performance like in other tier 10 heavies?

Evidently nothing judging by the 0 game count.

0games says veri stronk performance.

 

That asides, I do think the IS-7 needs more pen. Increase its standard rounds to 260 and premium to 320 would just about do it. Tbh I think that the 277 shouldn't have been introduced, and that the IS-7 should have just been given its gun and all would have been fine and dandy.
