Ok folks.

All people here know that currently IS6 its totally obsolete to compete even in Tier 8 games for the following reasons:

 

1) Poor pen (175) even with gold ammos (215)

2) Bad overall gun handling

3) Obsolete Armour cause new OP Tier 8 Premiums overmatch it easily and always with no need of premium ammos cause their high standard pen.

4) The Unique MM of IS6 currently has no more sense because with new MM system IS6 is 95% of times in Tier 9 games and rest in Full tier 8 games. Its almost impossible see IS6 in "pure" top tier with tier 6 and 7.

5) IS6 should be a first line brawler....sure...when you have in front of you a Defender or Amx Libertè or Type 4 or O-ho or chrysler GF or you choose.....you can just pray your team and go back...you cant do nothing even with gold.

 

At this point It would be common sense for the WG:

 

1) Offer the possibility of Full refund for people who ask it

or

2) Balance this tank buffing it

 

Have fun and gg all.

Wow....this is a new thread...

 

FYI, nobody is entitled to a feund on the IS-6, unless Wargaming change the tank in a detrimental way.

 

Use the search function. Thanks.

You can already sell the tank for credits, albeit not for a full refund.  Certainly it was never that good a vehicle, particularly with respect to the weak gun, and the recent developments in heavily armoured premium tanks have made it extremely uncompetitive.  What bothers me is the fact that relatively new players of the game won't know one premium vehicle from another and may pay a lot of money for the IS-6 thinking they are getting a powerful tank.  When they realise they've bought a turkey they may be so disappointed they quit playing the game.  I didn't, but I do feel I was conned into buying a bad vehicle (it was my first premium tank and, boy, do I regret that).

Bought it on 30% discount, knew it was crap and can confirm so , but it does bounce a bit, I bought it because I believe a serious buff is coming - there are too many Russian players with this to leave it poop - my first two games , a total of zero damage , all crit hits or we did not pen..    :-(

Well I just traded it when had a chance, I suggest you do the same. They can't really buff armor without making it idiotproof because of extremely simple armor profile, but gun buff may come

Hear hear!

 

I agree, In its current state IS-6 is an effing disgrace to Motherland-mother. The gun is the biggest issue with IS-6 and badly needs a buff. Alternatively, if I may be as bold as to suggest they offer us an option to upgrade to Defender.. just a thought, huh? ;)

Every crap tank will get buffed eventually. It's an endless money making cycle for WG.

In the sense that buffing is a vicious circle (a tank is buffed, which makes another tank weak, so it's buffed, which means another tank has to be buffed in turn, and so on) WG has made a rod for its own back.  Somewhere along the line it is going to have to stop introducing vehicles, particularly premium ones, into the game that are so strong people playing the regular tank lines in the free game find it such a discouraging experience they quit.

I agree totally, the power creep jumps are way too much and it would be better to bring everything down than up - however, this wont happen so better to be inside the tent weeing outwards than the other way around

You can refund it if you bought it and didn't play a single battle. Since if you did play it - it wasn't by mistake. You broke this rule 1305 times

I sold mine. This tank is a piece of crap with the current MM.

I would think it unlikely they would buff the IS6 much.

Maybe do something similar to the mediums and take the 175 up to maybe 185 or a little more, the defender has 225 so no way that high.

So I would recon a pen buff of 190 max for AP and perhaps 225 for premium, they might just stop selling it and phase it out with other preferential MM tanks

Why would you ever play a T8 tank with 175 pen that has preferential matchmaking (meating T9 70% of the times).
