This was a totally worthless 1 minute and 46 seconds.

 

I actually much more like the old fashioned videos where the tank is introduced and not only a pewpew actionmovie from free camera angles presented to the viewers...

IS6 is a good tank if used well. But the Video is a bit of a waste of time as it doesn't tell you anything about the tank.

I still regret not doing the mission for the IS-6 when I had the chance, I played it on test and it seems great.

This will be my next purchase in the near future

That's one awful video right there. Perhaps one of the worst WG ever (had) made.

I disagree , Once you have learned how to use it it is as good as any other T8 Premium

I'm so frustrated in this tank, bouncing, solo carrying games and typing credits... I really don't know how much can i resist and continue playing it.

Well, I genuinely laughed out loud at how bad that was.  Worst WG video ever.

 

But the IS-6 is a good choice for those looking to buy a tier 8 premium.  On the down side, it can only train 4 crew (not a full 5 man crew like the IS-7 and KV line tanks need) and the gun suffers from low penetration and poor accuracy, which can result in a lot of frustration when you keep bouncing shells off enemy tanks.

 

On the plus side, as you will know if you've played against it, the IS-6's armour can troll players an awful lot, bouncing, ricocheting or otherwise just eating shells all over the place.  Assuming you can hit and pen your target it has a decent DPM and alpha and has a good combination of hit points and armour whilst retaining good mobility.

 

It's probably the easiest of all the tier 8 premium tanks for the average player to do well in (IMO) and hence a good recommedation for most people.

So, Russian players with Russian flags on their tanks and inscriptions such as "Soviet arctic explorer" and "Russians do not surrender!" speaking with American accent?

 

Sounds legit.

I support the mass use of IS-6's to farm, abusing their troll armour to stomp weaker armoured tanks.

 

Because nothing makes my day like meeting IS-6's in a chokepoint with an M6A2E1.

 

Aaaaand then the trolling of the trolls begins...

Awful, awful video. One of the worst promotions I've ever seen WG do, and that includes the godawful advertising streams at Gamescom etc.

 

Whoever thought this one up needs to crawl back to the 1980's.

 

Great tank. Arguably the best tier 8 premium. In terms of brawling heavies, the 112 comes a far distant second to this because of far inferior gun handling and reload.

Oh noes. No more Guide Park videos anymore?!

Like 'Not many armored vehicles can surprise you on the battlefield like the one hundred steel giant known as the ... ' (guess what)
