It's not OP, just more balanced than other tanks!

the audio seems off for me, I think its been speed up slightly. Probadly they had a longer video but cut it down, a shorter video is good though, nice and sweet.

Liked the ARL 44 guide better, this one lacked the how-to-kill-it-section.

THE REAL IS3 GUIDE: just drive forward and use autoaim while going full speed...don't worry about enemys shooting you, you will bounce every shot, and those rare ones that will penetrate your armor won't do any damage...THE END!


Edit: better now?

Anyone else notice that in the vids the turret is much higher than the one that it cuts to in the garage?

Didn't know that a tutorial for this tank was needed.
You can pretty much drive it straight, sideways or with reverse to the enemy base from what I've seen...

The video says the tank is ballanced by the rate of fire, then it says it has better rate of fire than most of the same tiered heavy tanks. IS-3 is OP by all means, everyone knows it (thats why you dont see anything else in clan wars, companies and championships.) so it needs to be nerfed.

Whoever posted this video is seriously on speed... otherwise he would have noticed the text is way too fast to be enjoyable listening to...

Did he really say the T34 turret can only be penetrated at its sides? Ive been damaged in the front of turret countless times.

Commander's hatch on top of the turret of the T-34 is a weakspot that you can penetrate even with tier 6 guns (although not reliably). This is why you should be moving and wiggling to not give the enemy a clear target even if they can't see your hull.

And yes, this video missed a lot of the weakpoints of the IS-3 (top plating, lower frontal plate, track guard, turret view ports...)

Right. So I'm useless and can't find this "Play" button everyone is talking about in order to watch the bloody thing ^^ Is it that I'm just blind (god luck in WoT then) or because I'm using FF or what? Help please...

Why didn't they mention the ammo rack issue :P

And maybe the elevation/gun depression problem? :)

One more thing that I noticed, like all the others.. that the speaker speaks a bit too fast at some point, almost like computer program D:
