Yes, it is another one of those "what tank is the best" kind of thread.. I'm making this a poll, but I'd appreciate some replies as well and some discussion.

So, I currently have the t29 elited, my IS is soon elited and I have a kv4. I kind of only want to grind for one heavy line for now so I can get a tier 10 quicker.


I've never really played a fast assault tank like the IS before and thought I would hate it but I really love it. I got 686 experience per battle, which is really good for me and a 57% win rate. I also find the armor quite bouncy, I can often manage to trick people into shooting at angled parts by angling my armour after where I can see their gun is pointing in close range combat.

The T29 is awesome, love the turret and I love the gun depression! I got 698 experience per battle, which again is good for me and a 48% win rate (not so good..)

The KV4 is a bit so-so.. some games I hate it because I can take on an IS-3 and he just bounces, while other games the speed just kills it because I can't get into cover when caught in the open.. I have 650 exp per battle in it.

I've tried all the tanks a bit on the test servers and it seems to be that both the IS7 and the T110 are fast assault tanks (sort of like the play style I've grown to like in my IS) while the IS4 is more slow and well armored (a playstyle I've loved in the past with the KV and the KV3)

What is the gun depression like on the t110, can it still hull down decently? For a long time it has seemed like there is an agreement that these two tanks are really good t10 heavies, but lately I've heard a lot of people say that the armour sucks, etc so it is really hard for me to find out what to actually go for.. The test server is all gold ammo, so I sort of can't test it there, which is annoying.

If you have any questions about my playstyle, etc, just ask. I tried to give a little brief review here :)

I love my IS-7, have a win rate in it of 51%.  My overall win rate is 45% :Smile_mellow: , so I think the IS-7 suits my play style more, plus the bouncy armour, speed and good gun (not a great gun).

Probably the E5.. It's gun and front armor makes me nervous when facing them. Depends on your play style then, IS-7 and IS-4 have respectable guns and their overall armor us very good, spaced armor anyone?

Its all about playstyle mate! I recommend you go on http://wiki.worldoftanks.eu/Main_Page and read the "Player Opinion" section! This would give you a great hint about how the tank is and how it is played! :Smile_Default:

i just bought today is-7, and made some battles.Even with a crew of 75% its an awesome tank.Now i am going to make 100% and buy the Equipment(Rammer/Ventilation/and the Aiming time one).

I consider it the only tank which can battle with 2 tier 9 heavy by himself.

I also have is-4, which its good if you are like me, and rush most of the times.Gun is awesome, mobility decent, but bad armor.
As for T110E5, i don't have it, but as my xp against it, its a very hard to kill from distance, and also hard to kill from near.

Go on testserver and try them all. Remember also that in long run any of them can have times of being the best and being the worst :) It depends from nerfs and buffs by WG :)

The T110E5 is awesome:
  • Small
  • Fast
  • Good accuarcy
  • Good rate of fire & DPM
  • Good gun depression
Btw: you can try out all tanks on the test server.

If you know where to look you can always and always hit the weakspots of a E5.
With the IS7 its different so. Thats how i look at it.

for first IS7. second T110E5. IS4 is pretty useless I think. IS7 has better armor, IS7 is more manoverable and I think it has better gun too.

I have IS7, IS4, T110E4 and I've played and I've researched E100.
Imho : E100 won't buy until it's fixed.
IS4 it's not a fun tier X for me, I just don't like it, I sold it. Steel wall.
Is7 it's incredible, very good tank, but not fun : big aim time, big damage, kind of slow, depending on the situation you can bounce anything or can be damaged by tier 7. Brawler.
T110E5 it's the best all around : good sniper, good brawler, good rof, good aim time, good acceleration. Funniest tank I've played.

Is-4 side armor is more bouncy-- is-7 sides armor is non existant.

IS-4 -- Heavy tank
IS-7 -- Heavy- med hybrid

thanks for all the replies so far, everyone! It's been helpful :) I think I'm leaning more towards the IS7 or the T110 than the IS4.. What I'm thinking is that I should probably like the tier 9 tank as well as it will be a pretty long grind.. The is8 and the M103.. any thoughts?

IS8 is an semi hybrid med with almost no armor and good gun, would prefer M103 any day. I personally would go the american way.

I have all 3.

My order of preference

T110e5, IS4 then IS7....but I also got the IS4 before the switch so I don't have to go through the KV4...

I loved my m103 but rushed to t110 so crew have nearly finished their first perk and I suck with it just seem to get smashed even by tier 9's
Not sure what im doing wrong mind
Dont overly like my is3 cus of the lack of depression

IS-8 has it's good days when you bounce every shot like from bl-10, but it's depression is none. Mobile and hard hitting gun makes it really good.
