Just want to say . I brought 5 boxes and have yet to get a sheep . Stupid boxes . I want a refund Conan !!

Sig number 6 gone . In Armageddon - Day 1.  Note the date .

You're a weird mob . I'd like to go quietly into the night . I understand Mods are here to stay . I understand Mission / SH / CW rigging is here to stay .

I'll not bother the forums with these things . Let me go in peace . Not sure though why I cannot try and get cheap gold if it's ok for others to do .

Could you please take notes there is tremendous disappointment and resentment on WG balancing department and super testers for their incompetence and continuous failures in tank balancing? How do they still keep their jobs? Players have spoken that we want No more russian premium tanks and the outdated standard tanks need a massive buff. We also need more maps in random instead of Grand Battle and frontline back. I highly doubt the significance of Asian forum opinions or even across the EU on WOT development given that WG literally care nothing apart from Russian tanks and money making, also 70% of the playerbase is Russians. I feel useless to express opinions since WG is still deviated from what the players want, Type 5, 268 v4, Mines map imbalance and three arties etc. are still destroying the game. Even if WG is not doing anything with these problems, could you please ask them to explain what is the logic behind the introduction of these tanks (like 430U vs 121) and why is buffing outdated standard tanks so hard?

If they can get in close and brawl, of course are very strong just like a SomuaSM or Emil1.

 

But like any tank that is slow, is easily spotted, has a poor view range and cant snipe. It is going to struggle badly on some maps. No amount of anecdotes from the youtubers can hide the fact this tank has some major drawbacks.

 

These guys have a responsibility to point out the pro's and con's of a tank, rather than upload a great replay to feed their egos. They failed to do that, so I came here to do it for them

Personally I'd like see things actually balanced rather than just eternally buffing things in a never ending attempt at catch up. Failing that i'd settle for them to just stop "making shit up"!

Bit of a shame then that your have so little credibility. I imagine if you actually knew what you were talking about someone might listen. But keep it up anyway. Fight the good fight!

cant beat, well might as well join em.

 

 

they will never be on sales, same like defender, E25, Lfspg, 130 and so many more :D (tips at the end of xmax, when all ppl killed themselves with loot boxes)

on the other note, just observe how community accepted defender, its everywhere now but nobody really care, give some time for IS3A will be the same, you guys have no idea what tanks going to come on future, if you knew IS3A is like a toy compare to them

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....

 

just answer me this question only, in stronghold tier 8 if full team of iS3A vs IS3 and defenders (all use gold rounds) whose going to win ??when u answer it think about tier 8 clan war 

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.

WG major market is Russia even all server close down, they will survive on Russian server(banks, stock market, factories and some other businesses which cant be said on forum) since the player population is more than sum of all other servers together

This is not true its so OP that does unbalance tier 8 games. I am a 53% win rate normally and mine has 62% win rate. That is not balanced - a 9% win rate improvement JUST because I payed for a tank. I call it out - its rubbish. It should not be here and has no place in competitive play because its skill cap is very low. (press W and shoot).

 

This tank will be known as the turning point for WG and pure P2W.

Are you a CC? Wow, peanuts being handed out it seems.

 

Why is it your looking away from every CCs opinion regarding this tank... (i cant wait to see what AEG\Edwin\Zwarsch come up with about this tank...)

Hell, if i get the chance to, ill ask Dakillzor about his opinion on this tank too...

 

The statements have been quite clearly made. And tbh, i think QB has finally had the musty rag pulled off his eyes.. Have you seen his latest rant against WG and the use of only releasing tbe is3a to Lootboxes. On all servers... (gambling at its finest)

 

I really dont understand your angle. They have taken an averagely balanced tank.. (litterally anyone who owns an IS5, can understand how the is3a used to be like)

And given it a reverse autoreloader.. Completely negatiting the balancing mechanic of said auto reloader....

Given it 390 alpha and a 3second burst, super fast apcr shells and 270 heat... That will pen a e100 turret flush...a jpze100 superstructure.. Flush. If it was reduced alpha.. Okay, maaaybe. 

But you can delete any tier 6 instantly.. Delete any tier 7 in 18 seconds and as displayed by someone else.. Destroy an is3 (the regular one) in less than 30 seconds... Aaaand

Be capable of bouncing shells, remember. Its an IS3, very noob user friendly over time..

Either i got too many expectation on IS3 and Defender or i just a total noob. Not really doing well in both.

 

So based on my personal experience, i think BrutalOnyx got a point there. Which is not everyone will doing well with this tank (IS-3A), especially in tier 8 and 9 match.

 

Doesn't mean I am okay with current IS-3A. It might get some serious opposition against tier 8 and 9 tank (emphasis in might), but tier 6 to 7 will be send to garage faster than Thanos can clicked his finger.

 

And seriously if i know IS-3A will be buffed this bad i would bought this over Defender last year.


Back to World of Tanks for now.
