Welcome back BL-10, I thought you were removed?

Oh, I see. You want us to spend 50 [edited] dollars for something you removed from the tech tree. 


What's next? M41 Bulldog with the 10 shot clip again? $60, get one while they're hot.

Like ISU-152K, a blatantly cash grab for those who missed and pissed because you took the whole gun from tech tree for such BS reason like rebalancing issue, and then 3 years again put it back again as premium, so everyone can buy the tank and poison the whole player base? Wow what a professional way to balance your game, WG.

Well you forgot the larger player base who sees this as a good tank to have.

BL10 was too good to be "free" apparently. Monetizicing free content seems to be the agenda for them. Anything from tech tree at tier 8 or bellow with good penetration gun are at the risk of being "rebalanced"... I have no doubt that the WT E100 could be readded to the game as a tier 8 premium..

Having META problems?

Obj 268 looks lacklustre. How do we fix this?

Oh I know, we nerf the ISU-152!

And yet the 268 is still lacklustre. May need to nerf it a little more.

To be fair and honest, they didn't "exactly" bring back the "true" BL-10 at tier 8. Just look at the stats compared with the regular ISU-152: https://tanks.gg/compare/isu-152?t=isu-152k
I mean, outside of 20 extra pen, a bit faster shell, somewhat better traverse on medium and hard terrain, and better gun traverse angle; it's freaking worse in every other aspects :facepalm:. The gun handling looks disgusting... I would rather stick with my ISU-152 and make credits with better premium than this crap.

But in the same time, we haven't got any idea about the "true characteristics" of the ISU-152K gun yet. Despite of the trash gun handling in paper, WG can still make it snap shot like a Rasha Bias Boss and move like a med if they want, because there are hidden stats even tanks gg can't show.

 

In my opinion, although I agree that bringing back the "BL-10 version 2" as a premium is not the best move by WG, this ISU-152K seems mehhh to me (unless the gun stats lie), and I still think regular ISU-152 is more reliable. I'm currently having a love-hate relationship with it, sometimes it hits some nearly impossible shots, sometimes it misses at 30m and made me MAD!!!! :angry:

Release the 268v4, and hear the testers say 268v4 is a weaker 268

None of those were removed than placed back exactly where they were beforehand, making the entire reason why it was removed in the first place null and void.

Thankfully this ISU-152K is nowhere OP. Indeed, it is the best in term of firepower, but totally outclassed by "common" TD premium such as Skorpion or SU130PM in terms of mobility and gun handling. Pretty balance, especially for someone who doesn't care about speed or turret like me.

 

Me? I simply need crew trainer. I want to buy SU130PM/ISU122S, but this thing is new, so I buy it.
