Hello guys !! What do you think about IS-6 against new tier 8 premium heavy tanks? I want to believe that now IS-6 is the useless heavy tank ever in this game.How an IS-6 can fight against Defender,AMX libertee and no words against Craysler which with gold never  ever can`t penetrate that tank !! I think IS-6 really need a big buff because I can`t see his role in this conditions,even it has MM preferential he never can`t be usefull against new tier 8 premium heavys !! hope WG will read this topic and they will think about buffing IS-6 in the future ! Please share your opinions here,thanks !

Yes... we know. It's on the buff list. WG said it will be buffed within the next 2 patches. But what they will buff? Who knows. KV-5 is on the same list. As the AP pen is lower, and the gold pen is the same.

yeah,sure..they buffed a bit the armour but the gun which it matters is useless,the aimming time,dispersion and the penetration on this tank is worst now when the new heavy tanks cames,if you will meet a Craysler you just give him the kill,don`t fight  !! have you played this tank now recently?became very rarely on the battlefield !

Yes, it does. The armor is still mostly good, though weaker than on some of the newer tier 8 HT's. As said previously, the gun handling and pen are the biggest problems with IS-6, the MM is not very favorable either...

So you want a tank as good as a "Craysler" but with pref MM?

NO..I want a tank who can manage a fight decently..so with 217 on gold ammo you can deal verry good i guess !! read again what I have said up..in these ccircumsatnces they should move this IS-6 at tier 7 because in 8 he can`t manage the battle !!

I would much rather they removed it's preff mm which is completely broken atm. And give it a similar, but slightly nerfed Bl-9.

Ok, lets buff the IS-6. Give it 200mm of penetration and better accuracy.

 

But also remove the preferential MM.

The IS-6 is fine IMO. KV-5 could perhaps do with a little love though.

Give it better penetration and nerf the crapout of the armor. Make it more like T-10.

IS-6 don't need buff,  just load 100% HE ammo and hide behind 445m circle  :trollface::hiding::bush:

The big "problem" is the new matchmarker. Before the change you saw mostly tier 6, 7, 8 and an occasional tier 9 tank. Nowaday you see 80% percent of all matches only tier 8 and 9. But I had not played it in a week, maybe the update did something in it's favour.

 

In the old matchmarker the penetration was OK. In the new matchmaker only seeing tier 8 and 9 it's not adequat any more.

 

If you still want, to make some money, but don't shoot premium ammo: Load more HE. That 122mm do hurt almost every tank.

I have lost a pleasure to play with IS6 long ago and use it only during specific events ... 

They definitely have to do something with this tank...

The gun is totally useless and should be not mounted on such Premium tanks at 8level.

Hope they will upgrade it one day... :-)

i`m agreed with you,but note that in the past you didn`t have these new OP premium heavys which you will meet`em every battle at tier 8,MM preferential is not anymore an advantage for this tank !

This...

 

And if u try to make a ticket about this, "rules" tell you that you cannot do tickets about matchmaking, nor premium vehicles matchmaking...

In old match making, IS-6 premium I used to be noticeably more times in top of team, than in regular tier 8, but new match maker ignores premium vehicles and treats them as regular ones (im playing another 2 tier 8 tanks regularly)...

 

IS6 does have steel and power for most tier 7, and some tier 8... any tier 9 enemy is out of discussion... but tier 9 enemy is most often seen as enemy for this tank...

 

Generally if its hard to penetrate enemy, you must use brain and tactics and its possible and fun, but I started avoiding this tank for having too strong enemies... with 175mm penetration gun, being able to penetrate another tier 8 HT on sides and rear only thats what mediums are doing not premium HT).

 

Lorr 40t was a seeing a bit more tier 9 than IS6 in old match maker, I guess because high penetration, or higher "battle rating"... now in new matchmaker its rare to be in top tier 8.

If 175mm of penetration isn't enough for Tier 8 HT's then why is it enough for tier 8 MTs?

They face the same tanks. And in this corridor gameplay that the maps have devolved into you meet everything head on anyway.
