I bought the IS-M just a short while back and immediately I notice, it doesn't matter if you are upgraded or not upgraded, anyone who sees you spam gold. It is much like automated, heck I don't get spam by gold when I was in my IS-7.

 

WG if you are listening to this, increase IS-M armor a little bit more, and you'll have a gold sink tank to help you get more rich guys to spend.

 

I get it when higher tier spam them because they can butter trough. But I have match where tanks that don't even past 100 pen with gold shell wasting it on my face instead of using HE.  What does WG tutorial teach kids this days?

Man it almost as if people fire gold at things that are heavily armored and have difficulty penetrating.

 

Who knew?

Legend has it that on some servers the IS-M armor is actually usable. Probably not this server.

I find most tanks tier 8 and above are gold magnets.

Most of the time it is: Sees enemy team list, type 5, type 4, mauschen, defender. Loads gold during countdown. first tank spotted is the enemy medium/ light yoloing down the heavy flank.

The IS-M has great armour for a tier 8. If you're getting penned by gold in 8's then you're doing something horribly wrong. If you're in a tier 10 game... well just expect to get penned by everything because most tanks have 250mm+ penetration there.

"...if that battle had KAC players there would be some of the worst gameplay the server has seen. I'd be yoloing, Ezz would be ramming, Robin would tk siggy, everyone else would likely afk at base as we'd struggle to get more than 5 on at one time. Shit did I just let out our master tier 4 strat?" - King Yolo, PBKAC

My rule of tonks... if you want to use armor go with roughly 200 effective vs tier 7s, 250 effective vs tier 8s 300 effective vs tier 9s and 350 effective vs tier 10s. The scaling is there in hopes to account for some of the sprem spam you'll cop, and naturally you 'll need to adjust vs certain opponents. But it's a start.

The good thing about the IS-M is that the sides are gold-proof if you sidescrape.

Playing it stock I find it almost as soul destroying as the Chinese 110.

Elite turret is a massive help, if only because XP "leaks" out of damaged targets so you being close by gets some of the spill, and stay within 300m of the clash by improving your survivability. Spamming HE along the grind was a desperate, but logical, course of action.

 

Elite gun ain't exciting; 212 pen is stuff you expect from an ARL or  a tier 8 MT, not a front-line HT
