The release of the changes to the statistics of IS-3A premium russian tank can be devastating!

 

i am not really concerned about that, but most of the community is!!! And if they quit i will have no one to play with, so please listen to the community!!!

 

you need to rethink your decision to buff IS-3A!!!! Its a premium tank, so its obviously a pay to win tank, with huge carry potential.

 

 

WG is commiting suicide, they have done many wrong things already i know that some ppl think they started killing the game long ago, but now its like they are really applying the last lethal dose to the game....

 

 i am worried about the money i havve spent in this game (about 300-400 USD in 4 years). i hope you at least sell this game to other company who is not just thinking about squeezing the last cent they can before they shut down the game...

 

 

People dont want it buffed IS-3A in the way that its being announced. I feell many people will quit!!! Who am i gonna play against if people quit??? Bots??? Please keep it an online game!!! I dont like CO-OP games!!!! 

 

Thx

 

 

See youtube comments, many people are talking about quitting, thats scary:

thx for the votes everyone!!!

 

regarding the IS-3A changes, things seems to be less terrible than it looks, i see lots of people wanting to buy premium boxes just to try to get the is3a.... I feel like i paniked too fast...

 

i made this thread in the morning after a good drinking, sorry if it sounded exagerated.

 

thx.

I had been planning on buying loot boxes this year as I need the gold. Now I am not sure that I will. To me, buying them means I condone their actions. If it was just an OP buff to the IS3A, meh there are already lots of OP tanks. If it was another rare tank available in loot boxes like the Type 59, meh. It's the combination of both is the problem. Just another narrow minded WG cash grab. Short term gain, long term pain.

in the minority opinion that IS3A SHOULD have autoloader because it was MEANT to have one in the first place. "A" stands for "AUTOLOADER". it's just that they didn't put one because back then the Italian system didn't exist, and putting a drum mag on an IS2 is stupid. so this is actually a correction by WG. besides it's not as OP as ppl thought: it still has slightly lower pen than the BL9.the only diffrence is that it can shoot faster than an IS3 but otherwise it's preety much the same. therefore i think the rage is unsanctioned...like, the Defender is more broken than IS3A...i don't see this much ppl whining about it.

If you want an Autoloader put an Autoloader but why an AutoReLoader and why its Inverse unlike Italians ?

 

The above reason is why people are whining

Should we call it the Antiloader instead then?

I find having 1170 alpha in a 9sec clip at tier 8 to be ridiculous. In the same time period a AMX50/100 puts out 900 (with a 4th shell loading in 2 more seconds). And on top of that there is zero penalty for clipping, it makes me question whether WG actually understood the meaningful choices inherent in the autoreloading mechanic.

Was deemed too much burst for a tier 9 med that did have draw backs and no armor, but fine for a premium without draw backs and very good armor.

in the belief that "autoreloader" is a WG term. same as "ready rack" in AW which popped up first, and works on the exact same game mechanic.

 

With that said, after re-reading the WG Wiki desc, I am now of the idea that the IS-3A is merely an IS3 with an autoloader robot in place of a human loader, and therefore should not have any of the autoloader system on, since IMO it would be correct to make it as an IS3 with faster reload (due to robots not slowing down from muscle fatigue from having to lift 122mm shells all day)

 

yes i am admiting i'm wrong. savor this rare moment. i'd honestly be less inclined to say so if i actually had one since the tears will fill the IS3A's ever-hungry engine

Honestly no one play this tank before the buff, so I agree with WG give some “buff” to IS3A.

 

So far I think this tank is quite good but not “too much good” and player still have the chance to against it with their skill.

 

For some players who think IS3A too OP, I think that if WG change “new autoloader system” back to the classic autoloader, will it make these players feel better?:deer:

 

any advice? :3

amusingly my brother has it so i took a peek. it has a REVERSE italian autoloader. whereas the italians load faster the more shells it has on its clip, IS3A loads SLOWER the more shells it has on its clip. meaning that it loads its fastest on an empty mag

have u heard about the incoming changes for the game in 2019? it looks great for game balance and variety. I am optmistic, so i bought 75 boxes first, and then 25 boxes today, and got an is3A in the tenth or so box...

 

did u buy any boxes after all?

people whinned alot about the defender and they still do it these days... I remember that one time i saw a defender in a WG league on twich, a famous russian champion team was using a defender, and the defender bounced BC25t shots tree times lol in its tier 8 armor. That was some bad RNG i know combined with poor play by pro league player.... I also dont think defender so op, i have penned its cupola using my tier 6 checklosvakia autoloader lol, several times...

 

But the problem of the is3a is that if u camp, u have 1200 burst damage, if u dont camp, u have a normal is3!!! no disvantage!!! thats weird!! but i agreee with you that it isnt so op (just like the defender) but many people and weekend players dont agree, and they want to quit coz of this. This was my only concern and the main reason i created this thread to ask people around about their opinion.

it is indeed ridiculous!!! i wonder if is3a will get some kind of MM disvantages to see more bottom tier battles than top tier so it balances at little its firepower. At least so that other players that are less experience dont feel like they want to quit because of that tank...
