So you know the IS-6 is crap now and i think i figured a way to fix it,

Make the APCR round standard and give it the 122mm D-25A's 250mm pen HEAT round and problem solved, It won't have much armour but at least the gun will be able to do something in battle, Because right now the IS-6 is really suffering in this current meta and things need to be done.

 

And no, I don't own an IS-6 i just feel really sorry for all the people who bought the IS-6, not to mention the IS-6B

Or just give it the Blitz gun. As there you have the option to mount 2 guns. One with higher AP and gold pen and less DPM. Or the current 175mm pen gun, with more ROF.

They already said multiple modules for premiums won't be happening

 

 

But they also said they wouldn't sell the mutant.

I still think the IS-6 is alright. Not as good as it used to be, but fine.

and you don't feel the sorry for tens of thousands of players who got farmed/sealclubbed by IS-6 driving noobs before the new OP prems and MM? IS-6's used to exclusively see tier 6 and 7s literally every game. Why feel sorry for pathetic wallet warriors? I feel sorry for T32 players, Edited the IS-6.

They also would never sell pre orders tanks. But WOT has had a new staff since then, that has changes the rules. So who knows.

You realize the IS-6 has preferential MM though?

And that current prems have normal MM?

 

How do you think it makes sense they should be on par???

Make an IS-6A with the gun mods I listed above and don't include pref mm, We've got enough fake tanks why not add more

A type of intermediate ammo would be fine even if it's just 190/230 even if it still isn't enough for the tanks with broken armor....at least you have the chance to a much higher roll for penetration.

And do you realise it happens that the is6 does see a lot tier 8 and 9 tanks and almost no more lower tiers at all?

Why do other tier 8 prems have higher pen to compete against tier 9 and (also have to work against tier 10)?

Before the mm change I really agreed with the arguement about the pref matchmaking but now it is not longer a good arguement at all.

There is nothing wrong with its armour or the tank itself , just the gun is very bad.

It cant compete against own tier tanks , so against tier 9 its even worse.

Guess what, play 10 games and 8 are with tier 9s in game that just roll over you without any tactic at all.

Even a lot tier 8 prems dont have any problem to take out a is6 anymore.

For me it feels like playing amx40 against a kv1, do you think that is fair?

IS-6 won't get anything alone as that would cause a sh1tstorm. If they buff IS-6's gun, then they would need to buff the WZ-111 and 112 as well.

From my point of view, a pen buff while keeping the preferential matchmaking and everything else unchanged looks slim. They might give the mentioned tanks better pen but it will come at the cost of something else if they are to keep the PMM.

And while arguing that PMM is not that special anymore, it still is PMM as you don't see T10 tanks anymore. If I were WG I'd use a POLL and see what people want: better penetration and losing the PMM or a gold refund but go ahead and change the IS6, WZ-111 and 112 as well.

235 pen with the apcr wouldn't hurt to pen weak spots of the  powercrept newer heavies, but the rumours about the IS6 death are highly exaggerated. It's still a formidable tank with excellent survival skills.

Pref MM tanks at tier 8 will remain crap unless they buff them significantly and move them up to the normal MM all new tier 8 premiums have. They cant give it a buff while it still stays in the pref MM.

Of course they can, just ask the WZ112 and WZ111 to some extent.
