So IS 3A went from being powercreeped tank to OP, GJ WG

 

I cant put it in better words than Skill4ltu,

 

Not only they introduced "inverse autoloader" but they significantly buffed the aim time on the tank

 

Now I am asking who thought it was a good idea


The Great Overlords of Wargaming have bestowed me with the Title of Dark Meister of Tanks, The controller of RNG and MM

 

Thou must shout my name if you want favorable RNG and MM

Seems like 15% reduction in global playerbase does not alarm Wargaming tank balance department. Well, they still have 70% of their players being Russian. So OP Russian tank? Nah it is fine, we don't have to care any other tanks like the 110 and the T32, they are too powerful already !

 

Another magnificent demonstration of WG competence, there is just no one able to stop them from dropping off the cliff.

part of marketing load gold to pen them 

In the moment when I truly understand my enemy, understand him well enough to defeat him, then in that very moment I also love him.

more than 400 new vehicles are still planned for World of Tanks

Lol they fixed the MM for this tank, im currently worse than the worst Bot ever in this tank (admittedly played it too much before when it was a lemon).

 

36 Battles - 33% win Rate ahahaha and im averaging 1536 damage/ 1.16 kills per battle go figure.

 

But its weird the inverse auto loader is best of everything. Load time is same as normal is3 when not clipped. Loading 2 shells is the sweet spot. 800 potential damage in 3 seconds and only 14 sec for second shot to load.

Fun fact, the Is3a hasn't been sold directly with their broken auto reloader mechanic so i guess the optimists among us could dream that wg would see the error in their ways and fix their mistake.

Only reason i bought the tank was that it said it was autoloader... and it didnt come with the auto loader! WG wouldnt give money back because i had used it.... nice. I would have been content with normal Autoloading mechanic but Reverse - [edited] war-gaming you truly are fools. In its current form 1 for 1 it can out DPM any teir 8 AND it has armor... smart people at WG.

It's in the Crimbo boxes as a possible reward (read: the bait), which will have people howling that they paid $X munnies to get it if any changes go through.

 

They have ONE DAY to reverse this decision before the boxes go live. What do you think the odds of that are?

The salt would be real but in reality it would be pretty laughable for someone to claim they bought boxes just for the is3a. Those are very clearly only a chance thing.

And T8 has actually been so nice of late even with the glut of boom stick TD's. Should have known it couldn't last.

That's the intra clip. Total clip take a little longer. 

 

It's still an IS3 with a burst, I expect these will feature in tier 8 clam warts.

Just a PSA for you before you all get your nickers in a knot.

 

(1)The IS3A has subpar AP rounds, and unreliable and low velocity HEAT rounds (compared to the more reliable high velocity APCR of the IS3).

(2)The gun handling is ABYSMAL. I dont mean kinda bad, i mean ABYSMAL. - the 112 has vastly superior gun handling!

(3)The tank is sluggish, worse than a SoumuaSM with a horrible 10.6 power/weigh ratio, and terrible traverse speeds.

(4)Cursed with the -5 gun depression, so you will have a decent turret armour but will have to expose your hull in many cases., the slow p/w ratio will not allow you to quickly back up after firing.

(5)Has a weak engine that will get damages easily and a fairly high (15% fire chance)

(6) Only 200-222 frontal hull armour - will be frontally penned by most. Weak flap on the turret roof.

 

Yes it has the autoloader, and the hull and turret armour is workable like the IS3. But you will have to deal with the worse gun handling out of all the  tier8 tanks, and a sluggish tank that will limit your ability to flex around the map. Yes you will have good games in it, but you will also suffer due to the many weaknesses this tank has

 

The point being, don't fall for the "IS3 is OP" scam and spend all your money on Christmas boxes to get it. It is a potentially strong tank littered with many flaws....

Sometimes the world needs some objectivity...

 

Anyway, I will leave you to your groupthink, may you all find a nice deluded consensus :)

So, MM rework takes one to the knee-cap. Tier 8 much improved, now this abortion comes along. Why must this company frag their own improvements? We get so few, and the few we do get they can't wait to destroy.
