Seems pretty reasonable .... now what can we all complain about?
I know! Surely "Ultimate" should be the very best and therefore superior to "Supreme"? I knew there would be something

No hate here its a good tank I do not want due to crew limitations and they have a straight offer and 2 with additions.
Also seem to have abandoned the imo silly practice of adding free stuff and then declaring its discounted. and even in that case all they needed was to rewrite the way they described it.

What to complain about, what to complain about. Hmm... Oh, I know. The gun handling. I've got the IS-5, which is better than the IS-3A in many ways, and yet I don't really like playing it that much. Mostly because it has shoddy accuracy, aimtime and bloom on move and traverse. And according to every source I check, the soft stats such as aimtime and bloom are even worse on the IS-3A. Can this thing hit the infamous barn door?
(It's a serious question though. Would love some feedback on how the gun handles from any IS-3A owners.)

Yes, I'm going to buy an IS3a to train my standard Russian heavy crews, so they can still be less skilled and worse than Berlin Parade IS2 crew, who start with a skill headstart and then train permanently faster so will always be more skilled, perform better and give better stats. Of course I'm going to spend money on Prem tanks to still be disadvantaged in crew training and have worse crews. Oh, and then too, I'd be training them in a relative environment where people from CW's get free gold so they can permanently use Personal Reserves for free, giving them double the crew XP others get, making them ever more advantaged. And then too, playing solo I'm happy to get less crew XP than tooners and be even more disadvantaged in the crew economy. Of course I'd spend money on a Prem tank to still be grossly and increasingly disadvantaged in crew training, crew skills, and so performance compared to others.
What a totally broken proposition these Prem tanks now are for more than the small minority on the gravy train. Don't buy it unless you're already paying-2-win with Berlin crews, using Prem and maxing out on Personal Reserves, and are tooning.
edit - or maybe I'd want to buy it cuz I collect Russian tanks and in particular the IS's? What a shame then that the IS5 is a highly exclusive CW's reward tank reserved for a tiny minority (& even more exclusive for the version with historically correct decals), so buying this as part of a collection is pointless as you can't complete that tank collection.

I have it, my recomendation is that if you have the Is3, don't buy this slower version. Credits aren't that good since tier 8 premiums are fodder and damage farming for tier IX and X.
The tank is fun to play, but not has fun has the Is3, better go for the Berlin Is2 and play the regular Is3. Stay away from heavy tier 8 premiums.

I have this tank on other account and it is horrible waste of money.
Main problem with it is terrible gun accuracy and aim time. Even with 5 skill crew hitting anything at any modest distance is challenging. Forget sniping anything.
Tank itself feels slow and sluggish. If you are used to playing is3 this tank will disappoint you for sure.
I only wish i found a honest review about it before i parted my cash for it, because i would stay waay clear. Anyone in need of rusian heavy trainer get is-2 berlin instead

I agree with you. Especially When we compare credit incomes of is3a with t34 or Löwe, is3a has much less credit income than t34 or Löwe. These vehicles are being sold the same price approximately... Bullet(including gold ammo) and repair costs must be decreased urgently.

greetings to ya all, folks
here is my thought on this:
i don't have the tank. what puzzles me is why so many of you bought it. those that complain about credit income - ammo cost is advertised, was advertised - so why not do the math before buying? anyway, i can partially understand you, maybe you take for granted that a premium tank will make a lot of money.
for the rest of you, though, it should be a lesson. russian accuracy is a well-known issue. just comparing the values from a kv3, is, is3 with this should provide you the answer about gun handling. if you did and decided to buy it, don't complain. if you did not do any research and just bought it... well, your issue - details were advertised, and whoever does not know what caveat lector is he/she should go fast and check it. google know it all

If these tanks would not see tier 10, I would have bought it but since they are put into tier 10, I will NOT buy it. WG, you idiots. You need to change the match making for these money making tanks. They should not be in tier 10. Only 9.
For the sake of GOD, remove the stupid XVM from the game. Enemy should not see who you are because that means you have 5+ players attacking only you. How stupid does one have to be not to understand that XVM is a clear cheat.
Thank you for nothing.
