They did that already and wrapped it up in slightly different camo/form: It is called defender, You had your time with IS6 and now it is time to spend more moneys and buy newer tank that is viable now. It is called business and you do not need to like it but that is just the way it is.

It's not particularly easy to buff tanks with preferential matchmaking - especially not if they don't underperform.

 

Sure, IS-6 is kind of outdated and inferior to the 112 in the current meta, but it's still not a weak tank. Go beat up medium tanks instead of trying to pen T9 heavy tanks frontally.

You'll find that most T8 mediums have a hard time dealing with you, and will lose both when trading shots and in a duel - superior damage per shot and per minute.

 

Besides, the matchmaker is not that horrible for tanks with preferential matchmaking nowadays, you just can't beat up Cromwells every other game like you used to. :facepalm:

Wait for it to fire then rush it, if it fires again before you reach it be ready to instafix your tracks, get along side it and stay there, put superior DPM into it's side (this works with any Maus wannabe).

 

Of course it only works if he's alone, but then if your outnumbered AND fighting a CGF you have more problems than your pen.

WG buffed SP and Panther M/10 with ease.

 

And it's not like WG has a problem with overbuffing Russian tanks anyway,..

112 and T-34-3 will be easier to buff because they see tier 10 so no balance issues if they have their pen increased.

 

The IS-6 and WZ-111 on the other hand will be harder to balance with buffs because of their MM. The IS-6 definitely needs a better APCR shell that is for sure and maybe a gun handling buff. 

 

I'll say it again, they should never have buffed the IS-6's armour because that wasn't the problem. I called the pen a problem when the writing was on the wall with the direction of the game after they introduced the IS-3A and Japanese heavies.

Is-6 is already in the works to be buffed. Along with the KV-5 and the IS-7...

 

People should really learn to research things...

The new MM is totally horrible for pref mm tanks there are no match ups with tanks lower than tier 8 and thus IS6 seeing always tier 8 and 9 in the majority of occasions is useless

With exchange you meant option to give away IS-6 for small discount?  :trollface:    :bajan:  :popcorn:

WG should just remove pref. MM and give them a better gun.

is6 is a great tier 8 ht..good reload time compare to all tier 8 russians ht except the kv4, great alpha dmg with a lot of rolls over 400, insane armor if you know how to angle and do side..it need only more penetration (similar to is3a) , better gun handling and more accuracy , 217 of pen is patethic for a beast like the is6...

 

look at this now..

gold ammo penetrations of all tier 8 premium heavy tanks

 

  • IS6: 217MM---------------------It seems normal to you!?!?!??!?!
  • M6A2E1: 245MM 
  • CHRYSLER GF: 260MM
  • KV4 KRESL: 289MM----------------It seems too much to me!
  • DEFENDER: 265MM
  • AMX M4 49L: 263MM
  • IS5: 270MM
  • LOWE: 294MM-----------------It seems too much to me!
  • FCM 50T: 259MM
  • 112: 250MM
  • KV5: 219MM--------------------It seems normal to you!??!?!?!?
  • T26E5: 259MM
  • IS3A: 270MM
  • T34: 297MM---------------------It seems too much to me!
  • WZ 111: 250MM

 

anyway..they have announcde that kv5 and is6 will be buffed
