Hey new players, dont waste your time going down the heavy russian line to the IS7.  It is one of the worst,(if not, the actual) worst piece of crap in the russian line.  Find something with the word 'object' in it.  You might have a better chance, but honestly, the russian tanks are just crap.  Use the new Polish or Italian lines, because they have auto loaders and auto loaders are the best tanks in the game to play.  Anything which takes more than a few seconds to fire and you are blown away.

 

I dont care what you forum warriors think of my playing abilities, I am just calling it the way I see it and the Russian line of non object tanks is a joke.

It's not about how good you are, it's about how stupid the rest of the team is and how stupid the enemy team is which makes a good game.

Thanks for your discovery. I will be sure to avoid the Obj. 257 from now on since it leads to IS-7.

 

I will find and play 'object' 257 instead.


Noobs don't snipe because they are good at snipe; noobs snipe because they can't do anything else / People don't lose because they lemming; people lemming because they are losers

Do not confuse team strength with individual strength; a single enemy killed in a 1v3 is worth more than two enemies killed in a 4v2 / Lanchester's Square Law predicts in a 2v1, the side with 2 will end with 1.5 tanks remaining, so if you won with less than that remaining, you're actually noob, not pro

When you are not losing because you outnumber the enemy, your other flank is losing because they are outnumbered; it's just math

Law of mirror: When you are holding a 1v6 against the enemy, you own team is also getting 6v1 held by the enemy

Noob self-balancing theory: When you release a good tank, enough noobs will flood to play it, until the server stats become average again

Just curious.... what do you think about Obj. 260 and IS 7 ?

 

And I didnt know that Polish tanks got auto loaders, must have missed the patch notes

IS-7 is great. Penetration on gold rounds is bad but the rest of the tank is so awesome it makes up for that, if you can aim a little bit for weakspots.

 

Honestly if you're struggling in an IS-7 you really are doing something wrong. Its not be the most OP tank at the moment but its still very strong.

The IS-7 is worth the grind, very good brawling tank for corridor meta.

260 is a faster, less armoured IS-7.

Meanwhile in a recent similar thread many good players suggested the Russian heavies as a good starter line. So jt how are you going in auto loaders?

 

It seems further a bit counterintuitive that the is7 line is your second best performing tier 8 and your best performing 7, 9 and 10 (only). Yet you advise against it. Odd.

 

Meanwhile an excellent player's view on the line. http://youtu.be/XAnE2hdWDfY

If anything autoloaders are more punishing for new players. maybe you are biased because you are able to do one clip in the autoloaders and one shot of damage in single shots. that is on you.

The IS-7 line is one of the best lines for beginners and arguably the most well rounded with no bad apples.

they have the right mix of mobility, armor and firepower to be effective.

 

IS is the one of the best heavies at tier 7 and gets competition from only the T29.

IS-3 is also one of the better heavies at tier 8. It also has the added benefit of leading 2 very good tier 9s and 10s.

the obj 257 is a powerful tier 9 followed by the IS-7 which is also a well rounded tier 10.

I've just gone down the Russian heavy tank line, going for the 277, and the IS is easily the second best tier 7 HT (T29 is obviously the best) and the IS-3 is still a very capable tank and one of the best tech tree tier 8 HT's (I'd wager that the Caernarvon is the best currently).

 

Perhaps the tank is not the problem?

PBKAC. That's the answer (and no, not the clan).

If PBKAC is the answer, the question must be very grave.

Thought I'd take the IS-7 for a spin to show OP that its not bad at all. Here's a VERY average game for an IS-7. 

 

This replay really illustrates how you can play like a [edited] in the IS-7 and still do well. I over exposed, got shot so many times when I didn't need to, bounced shots, and still ended up with 4.8k base damage and 1700 assist.

 

Anyone saying it's a piece of crap doesn't know what they're talking about lol. 

 

Replay here.
