Why ask? Your going to get it soon so you can try it for yourself and see what you think. Some people love the KV1S others hate it and this is the same for most tanks and since you are not going to buy it it's not like your risking anything by trying it.

Good if used right with plenty of gold. I out perform IS-3s in them when I use it for TB

OK I am confused, how can it be good if you need lots of gold to use a tank that should be a credit earner? 90K till I get mine.

But that`s the thing. IS-6 is not that great of a credit earner even with normal ammo, there are better tanks for it. What it is though... Pretty nice carry tank for some matchups, be it in platoon or even solo. But of course you will want to have some premium round with you to use against tough nuts that you might come up against, if they are driven with people who have sense (not letting you brawl hit their sides or weakspots easily).

Bouncy troll armour, weak gun, reasonably mobile.

 

Spam gold, use it as a crew trainer and you'll be OK.

I still wonder why isn't it a good money maker? With 2-3k damage you should get an average net income of 70k at least.

Its my fave tank at the moment and my most played..The troll armour makes you play super aggressive with dire consequences sometimes but mostly the outcome is a good one..

 

I try to play aggressive at close quarters to flank enemys and play too its strengths and the armour allows you to do this....But YES!!! its a fun tank i love it:playing:

I enjoy playing it a lot more than I thought I would. Armour is quite troll, gun appears to be a lot more accurate than stats would have you believe, especially on the move.

I do make money on it, I don't just spam gold by default but I play it primarily as a crew trainer and I always play to win. If that means spamming gold and getting less credits because the gun can't pen normally, so be it. 70K is a fair bet for a half decent game though.

I make more in my IS-6 than I do in any other tank, if I can help it I use the prem only on the higher armoured tanks. That reduces the ammo cost.
